I an 37. I have a stone in both kidneys, that is the size of a little bug like 3cm. So now what can I do?
Drink lemonade. When my grandsons had them I was told to feed them asparagus and Coke. They really did pass them doing that. But drink lemonade everyday.
My urologist told me to drink lots of limeade I purchased frozen at the grocers mixed it drank about 2 quarts a day. The other answer said lemonade sure it is the same principal.
Trust us.. It works. onniejoe
My husband gets the oxilate type of kidney stone. I went to our health food store and they suggested that he use marshmallow extract and hydrangea extract. Worked wonders.

My dad has more than 8 kidney stones in both kidneys right now. We just found out from the doctor. He has been in pain for more than 2 weeks now. It is a stabbing pain. Does anyone have any home remedies I can try giving him? If so please let me know!

I've had three different bouts of kidney stones over the last 15 years. For the first two times, I ended up having to have surgery. Doctors went up with a "basket", busted them up, and brought them out. For the third time, I was fortunate enough to take a medicine called Urogesic Blue. It relaxes the urinary tract.
Prayers to your dad! Kidney stone pain is worse than childbirth. I had my first stone 3 months after my child was born...I would have much rather delivered another baby!
My husband has been plagued with kidney stones for the last few years. So I had saved the above website in my favorites. Please read over the website and it will give you a list of foods to avoid if a person has kidney stones. My husband can still eat these foods, but he has to limit himself.
Hulda Clark has a website she offers a homemade drink, but you need to follow it to the "t" and it's pretty severe, but claims to work using the olive oil mixture.
Google remedy of olive oil and lemon juice. It works. Bust up stones to sand. Dad can pee into a nylon and see the busted up stones.
Here is a remedy I just read about in Midwifery Today. It talks mostly about UTIs, but mentions that it dissolves kidney stones too.
Drinking parsley tea is a great way to help stamp out urinary tract infections (UTIs). Rinse one bunch of parsley with cold water; place it in a glass bowl and pour boiling water over it. Put a plate on top of the bowl and allow the tea to steep for 30 minutes. Remove the parsley from the bowl. Add honey to the tea if needed to mask the taste.
My husband has gotten kidney stones and the fastest, most complete relief came from a product at the healthy habits nutrition store. It is a liquid called Chanca Piedra by Raintree Nutrition.
Just read a book that says that visualization works great. First count backwards from 100 to 1. Then start to visualize the stones in your body and the white blood cells attacking them. See the stones getting smaller and smaller with each attack. Now you can see the attack as one with swords or a light saber like in Star Wars. What is important is that you see the results of the attack on the stones.
Do a google search on The Silva Method.
I had a kidney stone the size of a 50cent piece of course I had to have it removed, but there remained pieces I refused to have surgery again. I had a wonderful urologist and he understood,so he told me to drink all the lime juice I could. Not limeade, lime juice. Within a few days I passed all the stones.I understand it is very painful for men my heart goes out to your father.Some of the other suggestions given to you sound real good as well. God bless.
85% of kidney stones are crystallized acids with sharp points, such as Uric Acid or Calcium Oxalate stuck in one of the 2 narrow renal tubes connecting kidneys with the bladder. They will give you periodic pain attacks on the lower left or right side of your backbone. The acid crystals cannot dissolve as long as your urine is acid and therefore you need to buffer your urine to lower its acidity. 2 agents will do that well enough to have the stones dissolve to the size of coarse sand and come out. Take one heaping teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda with lots of water.
I have dealt with kidney stones several times over the years. The best home remedy I have found is :
6 oz. pure pineapple juice, mixed with 6 oz. tonic water
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Mix juice and tonic water, lick the palm of your hand. Put a pinch of cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg on your palm. Lick this off your hand, then wash it down with juice mix. The tonic water will relax the stomach muscles, The pineapple juice will cleanse the kidney. The cinnamon helps with infection, and the nutmeg will soften and help break up the stone. Do this a few times a day. The stone will break up and pass easily within 1-3 days normally.
I had two kidney stones that were large enough that my urologist didn't think that I could pass them but he sent me home with a strainer to strain my urine with and had me schedule an appt with him for two weeks later. I started researching ways to dissolve kidney stones and started my regime right away.
Every night before bed, I would bring a cup of filtered water just to a boil on top of my stove. I then poured it into a mug and added 2 tablespoons of Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar ("with the mother" on the label), 1 to 2 tablespoons of local honey and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. I drank this every night before bed for the two weeks prior to my next doctors visit.
While it didn't appear that I was passing any stones in those two weeks, I did notice very fine flecks of something white in the strainer that kind of resembled dandruff...but I didn't think anything about it. I visited my urologist two weeks later and he asked me if I had passed the stones...and I told him that I hadn't.
He then recommended surgery and told me to set up an appt. with his office secretary. While setting up my appointment, the doctor came up to me and asked if I would like to get an X ray to see if the stones had moved down at all. Reluctantly, I agreed.
Thank God I did agree to it because the X ray showed that BOTH kidney stones were completely GONE! I prayed to God those two weeks and drank the apple cider vinegar/honey/cinnamon concoction faithfully. I honestly believe that God led me to this drink in order to heal me! That was three years ago and I haven't had a reoccurrence yet.
This would probably be good to drink once a year for two weeks in order to dissolve any small kidney stones that may unknowingly be forming. At first I didn't care for the drink but after a few days, I developed a taste for it and actually ended up liking it. It tastes a lot like warm apple cider. I pray that this works for others like it did for me!
Dal-Balry rooti or barly water.
Herbal Remedy-5 to 7 Tulasi leaves soak over night in glass of water add honey and take early morning empty stomach.
If stones are more or stones are forming again and again take Punarnava leaves decashan or punarnava tablets.
I can vouch for this mix. I use 1/2 the same amount of the pineapple juice and 1/2 the amount of tonic water. I soak in very warm water in the tub while on my side that is causing pain. Has worked last 5 yrs.
Horsetail grass helps break them up. You can get it at any healthfood store
My husband has passed many stones too many to count. You can order or some stores that sell special vitamins& things GNC do not have is a no go just useless. Google this it's called stone free. My husband took the number suggested passed 7 stones in one afternoon. He does recommend sitting on the toilet, I know but the pain is so great you don't want your dad to fall hit his head or injure himself, who's going to know anyway right. His potassium could be low as well. I have studied kidney stone's now for 14 year's, runs in his family. Drink only purified water, regular water has minerals that can cause stone's. Apple cider vinegar all natural organic unfiltered is best, mind you I am not doctor just loving wife. Too much protein is not good. His have slowed a great deal you can get the cider in capsule for as well. I will keep your dad & you as well its hard on everyone when someone you love is hurting so I understand completely. The doctors act like no big deal just drink alot of fluids & squeeze lemon into water. I imagine few of them.have stones so it's easy to say. Our doctor gave him pain meds ,& Valium to relax urethra so tell him.take the meds at bedtime he is in pain after all & if the body relaxes stone's will pass because of relaxation . If he's like my husband he barley takes a aspirin but the doctor says if your body is in pain it can't relax. You can't get addicted because u have pain it's when.u don't & u take drugs for fun that get people in trouble. So tell him donor so his body can relax. Will be praying for your father & you and the rest of the family hope this may help. God bless
