Kidney stones affect millions of people around the world and even if they don’t usually cause any major health problems, the pain caused by them is unbearable. If some small kidney stones are eliminated with urine with minimal or non-existent discomfort, others are larger in size and can become stuck in the ureter and hard to eliminate, causing lesions and pain, nausea and even vomiting. The best way to fight kidney stones is prevention, but once they appeared you can try natural solutions and treatments with very good results.
Olive oil and lemon juice
This method is especially useful for people who have small kidney stones. The combination of olive oil and lemon juice is usually recommended to stimulate the elimination of kidney stones, but citric acid in lemon juice is also effective for dissolving calcium from kidney stones and stops them from growing in size.
Method of preparation:
Mix 4 tablespoons of lemon juice with 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Drink this mixture and then drink at least 300-400 ml of water. Repeat 2-3 times a day for at least 3 days.
