Signs and Symptoms of Kidney Stones

A kidney stone is a small, grainy deposit that develops in the kidney due to a buildup of calcium crystals and other minerals in urine. These stones can range from about the size of a grain of sand up to the size of a pencil eraser. Eventually, this stone has to pass through the ureter, which is a small passage that is primarily meant to carry liquid. This results in the most common symptom of kidney stones: sudden and intense pain. Other symptoms may include:
  • Wave-like pain, usually in the side of the mid-back, which radiates to the groin area and cannot be prevented by adjusting your position or sitting still.
  • Small amounts of blood in the urine.
  • Sweating, nausea, or vomiting.
Most kidney stones will usually eventually pass through the body by drinking lots of fluids. However, some may require surgery to be removed. Therefore, it is important to consult your doctor if you suspect that you have kidney stones.

Causes of Kidney Stones

Calcium and other minerals in the body are normally flushed away during urination. Kidney stones develop when the concentration of these minerals in your urine is too high, resulting in a buildup of these crystals that form into a hard deposit. Diet plays a significant role in determining what kinds of minerals accumulate in your urine. Oxalate is one of the main components of kidney stones, so you can help prevent stones from developing by reducing your intake of oxalate-rich foods such as chocolate, nuts, beans, spinach, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and black tea.

Home Remedies and Natural Cures for Kidney Stones Treatment

Drinking Water to Prevent Kidney Stones

Drinking more water helps to increase the volume of urine. This in turn helps to decrease the amount of stone-forming elements that build-up. Therefore, a common recommendation to help a kidney stone pass through the body more quickly is to consume close to a gallon (almost 4 liters) of water throughout the day. If you've previously had a kidney stone, drinking more water is also a good way to prevent the recurrence of them.

Magnesium as a Natural Treatment for Kidney Stones

Foods that are rich in magnesium have been found to help prevent the development of kidney stones, since magnesium helps lower the amount of oxalate minerals in urine. Good sources of magnesium are fish, rice, avocado, and broccoli.

Reducing Salt Intake to Prevent Kidney Stones

Eating foods that are high in salt and sodium have been found to increase the amount of calcium in urine, which increases the chances of developing a kidney stone. Therefore, a good guideline is to reduce daily salt intake to 2-3 grams. It is best to avoid high salt foods such as ketchup, mustard, luncheon meats, and snack foods such as chips and pretzels.

sir, there is a 7.5mm stone in upper left ureter. what is the best suggestion for me.

Posted by Danial on Sep 05 2013 08:10:19
@ Shashikant Jalan, yes it is coke, asparagus and distilled water. Start with 6 cans of Coke, drinking one every 20 minutes (finish them in 2 hrs) and immediately after it, eat about 8 oz. steamed and pureed Asparagus or a can of Asparagus might work too. And then drink at least 8 glasses of water. If you want to see the stones for your satisfaction, use a strainer made out of cloth or pantyhose when peeing. It works like magic, the only catch is doing all that in order and without any gaps. Good luck!

raise God. Kidney Stone symtoms suspected on Friday - pain eminating from very low (at the point of where pee comes out) and extending to the rear towards right kidney. I have a good friend that suffers several stones a year. So, I suspected as much. Pain subsided Friday night, but made it's presence know with a vengence on Sat. 10:00 a.m. - doubled over with pain in my abdomen & back but, the most excruciating was the lower pain. I am 50 year old mother of two. They were 9 lbs each at birth - I took no meds. The kidney stone pain was by far the worst pain. I sent my daughter to the store at 2:00p.m. Sat. for the coke, aspar, & distilled water. Begain the regimen at 3:00 by 6:00 was stone free. I passed three stones (may have broken up) with NO PAIN. By the way...after the second coke (and I credit prayer and God the ultimate healer) I was virtually pain free for the remainder ingredients. FYI: I drank the 6th coke too quickly and vomited so, I popped a 7th open. No doctor expense, no pain meds and completed within 48 hours. I won't wait so long the next time (Though Lord willing there on be one. No more coffee with creamer etc.) Praise Him & THANK YOU KAY!!!

I am 36 yrs old I have kidney stone of 7.5mm stone . please suggest some natural way to get rid from it.

Posted by kai on Jun 30 2013 22:47:39
Got the result of kub as i read it . Had kidney stone 8,8mm in my left and 4,4mm in my right.though sometimes i only felt a tolerable pain , still decided to consult it to the specialist. Today at 2pm my urologist will read it and lets see what he can recommend. Done all the research including all of you guys shared, lucky to those of you who did it naturally. Still,I am ready to a shockwave treatment than surgery there isn't adverse effect but effective this is the latest option of surgery . But my belief in natural way never change, this morning i tried to drink 1/2c lemon and 1/2c virgin coconut oil.i know it's not that fast but one thing for sure I cleanse my intestines. I will keep you posted as soon as my kidney stone successfully gone.

there's 7.5mm stone in my left urine pipe.Will it passe if i drink a lot of water?

I have 5 kidney stones blocked in both sides, i have 3 on the left and 2 on the right, i have had these now for 18 months, i had the scan a year ago, was told that because they are blocked in both urethra tubes, keep getting such bad renal coliac, i am on tablets for the pain, and i drink alot of water daily, they gave me some tablets at the hospital but they affected my bladder, i kept wetting myself, so i stopped those tablets rubbish, been told they can't blast them because of the other organs in the way, so i have had this past year putting up with renal coliac, how anyone can go through one, but 5 of them, dear god i must have been a bad person in my last life. Now, i was told to try coconut oil with lemon juice, i have tried two lots of this, this evening, not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but it feels like my whole body is being curdled, will know tomorrow i guess if i have passed them, or i end up ringing for an ambulance, i hate being put on that ward for kidney infection, they put the patients on high dosage of morphine and it sends people nuts, so the ward resembles more of a mental health ward. Well, good luck to everyone, i will pop back if this is a success, i kind of hate sugar, so cola is abit of a no no for me, i also must tell you, this stuff gives you a bad headache, but the pain of renal coliac is worth any pain if it gets rid of the bloody things!

Here it goes.6 cups water 1 cup real lemon lemon juice and sugar to taste. This lemonade will dissolve kidney stones. I keep it on hand all the time. My kidneys (both kidneys) were packed with stones. My urologist gave me this recipe and it worked. Cleared my kidneys up!

I as well had a 8mm stone. I found a guide that might help other suferers with preventing the stones again. http://kidneystonesymptomguide.blogspot.com

I was diagnosed with kidney stones in July 2012. I was told my 11mm stone would not pass by itself and I was referred to a urologist. No way in hell was I going to be having surgery if I didn't require it, so I visited my mate 'Google' for natural remedies. I too did the coke and asparagus trick, and wouldn't you know -I have had huge success! I have had a 'niggle' every now and again, but figure because the stone was so big, it was breaking down each time, so therefore I have had to do this remedy a couple of times. Mind you - this is a huge feat for me, as I detest soft drinks in my house and loathe asparagus, but for the purpose of the exercise, it was worth every bit of it. I am just so happy I tried this before surgery.

Coke and Asparagus WORKED FOR ME ! Too many of these posts leave you hanging as to whether a remedy worked or what they tried...specifically. I had been in pain overnight - excruciating pain the next morning - vomited and couldn't keep anything down. So, beginning on an empty stomach I began the coke regimen (one full can every 20 min for two hours - total of 6) Note: I drank the last can too fast and threw it up so, I popped a 7th and drank it carefully. Prior to the last can I had someone warm the can of asparagus with it's juice and puree. I ate the asparagus - all of it (it's not bad guys). And then immediately drinking Distilled water I had a gallon on hand but only got about a quart and a half down before I had to pee with a vengence (I had been able to hold all the cokes and asparagus and 1 1/2 quarts of water up until this point - I think starting on an empty stomach helped). In between cokes I had made a strainer out of a wire coat hanger and some pantyhose. With my strainer handy I did my best immitation of peeing like a race horse and wow - what relief - stones, stones, stones. I don't know why more people don't try this. Coke started out as a drug store item before it became a beverage. Who can possibly think asparagus and distilled water would cause harm. That said, while asparagus does have oxalic acid it's predominate medicinal property is asparagine - nature's most effective kidney diruetic. While coke's property that lend's itself to correcting kidney stones is that of phosphoric acid - which as everyone knows, will desolve iron. Coke disolves the stone and asparagus flushes it out of our system. It's not like your given a prescription to do this 3 times daily. It's a one shot deal..... and it worked for me.

Coke and Asparagus. I have a 4.4 mm stone.Cat scan revealed on Friday.Doc never called me back to tell me what i should do or to prescribe anything. So i got 6 cans of coke. One by one i poured into a glass and stirred it til it became flat.(Just makes downing it lots easier.)Also once it was flat i squeezedte juice of a whole lemon into each glass of flat coke i drank. I boiled some fresh asparagus and put it in the blender and only drank 8 oz of it. Then i looked at the table and the 6th flat soda with lemon is sitting there waiting for me and i thougbt awh crap i did it wrong! ?Oh well screw it ,I downed it anyway and washed the asparagus down with it. Damn i was full. So i waited bout 20 to 30 minutes and started drinking my 8 oz of water every 20 minutes til i had drank a gallon.Damn this takes about Four hours to complete.i was so full tired and ready to pass out.Never threw up though i wanted to.Kept trying to walk around the house. I dont know if this worked. Peed allot and very clear water looking urine. No more dark urine.But i never caught a stone in strainer. Within 24 hours of duin this ,my pain left me. Which was fine by me.Still trying to preservere with lemon water and pineapple oj and water water water. I think i read that you can or should only try this coke remedy every 3 days if necessary.I guess if pain comes back I'll try again.....God bless all....preservere...help and love one another....peace...

I've read that orthophosphoric acid was useful for breaking down or expelling kidney stones, but also that phosphorous is often a constituent/cause of kidney stones. I wonder how much of the answer is in the balance or ratio of calcium to phosphorous to magnesium. Have no kidney stones that I know of, but am having gallbladder pains and was looking into using chanca piedra (stonebreaker) before trying a liver/gallbladder flush. I've been using high doses of vitamin C for years and usually buffered it with calcium and magnesium, but no phosphorous. DUH. Finally dawned on me and I found some backup for this, that this could tend to cause maldistribution of calcium, or calcium deposits. I'm inclined to begin cautiously using some of the phosphoric acid with my cal/mag to try to balance it out. Can't see stopping the vitamin C and minerals, feel awful when I do. But concerned about calcium deposits in kidneys and elsewhere.

Phosphoric Acid (E338) [H3PO4] in coke ...>>> Phosphoric acid is a clear, transparent, odorless liquid also known as E338, phosphoric(V) acid and orthophosphoric acid with molecular formula H3PO4. Food grade phosphoric acid is viscous or syrupy in consistency obtained via white phosphorus. Phosphorous is a substance that occurs naturally in everyday food like meat, fish, poultry, milk, noodles, potatoes, peas, corn, egg yolks and nuts. Uses Phosphoric acid is used as an acidulant in colas the ingredient that gives them a tangy flavor. It is used as an ingredient in cake flour and bread dough, to lend acidity and control the pH levels of imitation jellies and jams, in sugar refining, as a yeast nutrient and in the production of cottage cheese. Phosphoric acid is useful in controlling the growth of bacteria in processed foods, degumming of palm oil, and as a supplement in animal feeds. Health Benefits Phosphorus is an important mineral and assists other nutrients in proving health benefits to the body. It works with Vitamin D and calcium in almost every chemical reactions happening in the human body. It is important for the normal structure of the bone and tooth and is essential for normal kidney function, healthy nerve impulses, the metabolization of starches and fats, energy production and the proper utilization of other vitamins and minerals. Health Concerns There had been studies linking phosphoric acid to lower bone density. Consumption of cola containing high levels of phosphoric acid causes a higher risk of forming kidney stones, chronic kidney problems and osteoporosis

Tim, you haven't been stoned since you were 29? Wow! Amazing... Let me ask... how does the lemon juice actually get to the stone in your kidney? Doesn't your body digest the lemon juice first in your stomach, then small and large intestine, so that by the time it even has a chance to get to your kidneys it has already been broken down into its individual components? Just curious...

Posted by KOS on Aug 08 2012 14:08:06
Any more results / recommendations re the asparagus and Coke 'remedy'? I tried it 10 days ago with Diet Coke, apparently to no avail. However, I'm game to try it again -- maybe with real Coke this time? I have a 7.5 mm stone that's been sitting a little more than halfway down my left ureter the last couple of weeks, and will be forced to go in for a laser procedure at the end of next week if I still am unable to pass it on my own. Any thoughts, recommendations or testimonials would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

I had a lithotripsy and it did not work at all. Hospital has now billed me for ,000. Should I have to pay for this?

The best cure for kidney stone that I have seen with my eye is drinking banana plantain water. Cut the banana plant to ground level, leaving rest of the stem inside. Make a crater like in the submerged stem and put some cumin seeds, cover and leave over night. Next morning, you can see water has accumulated in the crater that we made the day before. Drink that water after brushing the teeth. Continue doing this for a week. This is the treatment that my grandpa gave to a guy who was diagnosed with kidney stones. Within a week, in the next check-up, there were no kidney stones. This drink is good for every person. Alternative, but less effective solution would be to drink banana plantain stem juice. To prepare that, cut plantain stems into small chunks, add cumin, buttermilk and a pinch of salt; put in a blender, strain and drink.

Turnip juice. Find a juicer, juice turnips enough to drink it all day. Turnip juice will make the stone pass.

Dori, Hi, just wondered how you are doing following your recent kidney stone episode? Lisa

Posted by Dori on Jun 07 2012 02:13:36
Sorry, I forgot to add a little background on my previous post. The reason why I took the courage to try this Coke Asparagus method is because I don't want to take the risk of damaging my left kidney through another round of ESWL/Lithotripsy. Within a decade, I've had kidney stones twice previously. I went through 2 Lithotripsy with the first experience, and 1 Lithotripsy at the second time I got kidney stones. Now I'm having my third experience with kidneystones. All had been recurred in the same left kidney. I'm aware that ESWL could reduce the kidney's function, I feel very reluctant to do another ESWL, hence my attempt with the Coke & Asparagus method, which I hope will bring positive results. If this doesn't work, I might going to try Chanca Piedra. Has anyone here ever tried it? Appreciate if you could please share your experience with me. Many thanks in advance..

Posted by Dori on Jun 07 2012 01:54:09
Can anyone who have done the Coke & Asparagus method please help explain how long will it take for the stones to pass, or whether I should repeat this regime (for how many times & what's the interval) until I can start seeing any stones come out? I've just tried the Coke Asparagus method several hours a go. However, my stomach was not exactly empty at the time I started the regime (I had my supper 2 hours prior to that). Two hours down the row, after I gulped down 6 cans of Coke (I drank each can every 20 minutes) followed by a huge bowl of Asparagus puree and about a quart of water (which I could barely keep down - I vomited a little amount of asparagus afterwards), I still haven't seen any stones passed yet so far, despite of having been to the toilet for several times now. Now my stomach hurts so much, my left kidney feels like burning, and I can feel throbbing pain along my pelvic bone towards my groin. I've no clue whether this is what we're supposed to experience, or whether it's a wrong result. All I can tell now is I'm having a quite serious diarrhea, and so far have not seen any stones passed (I use stocking as strainer when I urinate). Thanks in advance for your help, it is truly appreciated. This site is awesome btw :) Cheers.

I've been battling kidney stones for the last 7 years since the birth of my 3rd child. For the longest time I would just put up with the pain which seem to come every 2-3 months... and would push fluids until the pain subsided. I was able to pass several small stones this way. Last year I read about the Coke/Asparagus treatment and decided to give it a try. I've done the treatment 3 times with positive results. The first time I passed a total of 4 stones within 2 weeks of treatment. I am a true believer of this treatment. Although it won't work for everyone's stone, but around 80% of all stones are calcium oxalate based and this treatment indeed can help with those stones... and what have you got to lose, except the pain & stones. Good luck all, with your endeavors to get rid of this thing that we we unfortunately are cursed with... and don't forget to continue to drink plenty of H2O to help prevent new stones from forming!!!

I was diagnosed with a 4mm stone in my left side last Wednesday night about 10:30 pm. Went back to the ER on Saturday morning as the pain was still there and nothing I could do seemed to help. They changed my pain medication and added Flomax to what I was taking for pain. I am drinking lots of water, apple juice and cranberry juice, yet still no stone. My pain seems to be get better and I have started vomiting. I just wonder can it just all the sudden stop like that? Go from stabbing pain to just an ache? My urine seem to change to, very dark and strong in the mornings to almost clear when I go to bed. Is this normal? When I vomit it has a yellow bubble liquid in it that taste terrible when I am passing it. What is this? I just ache now not really in pain just a constant ache from the left side near my spine around to the front almost to my belly button. Do all kidney stones make you feel like this? I have a Dr. appointment in the morning with a urologist to see about the stone. Don't know if I should keep it though as I am not in terrible pain any more. I just want to know if what i am feeling now is normal with stones? It's like I am constantly aware of the ache.

Sweta dear, you need a little reproductive education. Your kidneys (and kidney stones) have NO CONNECTION to your ability to get pregnant or prevent pregnancy. Consult your physician and get valid means of contraception.

This seems very contradictory to what I learned about kidney stones in nursing school. Calcium stones are the most common type of stones people get, and foods high in oxalate are supposed to be avoided with these types of stones. Asparagus and sodas are among the top of the list of oxalate-rich foods. But I've read a lot of positive reports about this treatment, can someone with some medical background explain physiologically how this is supposed to work?

hi guys i recently went up to the hospital for a x-ray with a suspected kidney stone ive never sufferd from this before. allthough the pain wasn't rly bad like some of you have expressed it still hurt quite abit anyway the x-ray came back clear normally id be jumping for joy however i'm not convinced it isnt a stone should i go back to the doctors?

Stef: Yep, drinking cola beverages on a daily basis isn't good - it will leach calcium... BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A KIDNEY STONE BLASTING CALCIUM IS WHAT YOU WANT !!! You can always follow up with yogurt. Lisa

I also suffer from kidney stones and I have noticed that taking Chanca Piedra has truly helped my pain, its from a health store and its only per bottle. i take three tabs per day and my pain is eased and i feel better. I have incresed my water intake. Whomever is suggesting to drink COKE is a remedy is ridiculous! Coke had acid in it which leaches the calcium from your bones out into your blood stream and causes KIDNEY STONES!!! So DO NOT try that! I was drinking diet coke everyday thats when I had the pain, I switched to No COLA, just water, light juices, and caffeine free drinks...try it...it may help!

I am a 33 year old male and passed my first kidney stone at the age of 8 in October 1986. Then each year around October and September I would always pass a kidney stone for the next 4-5 years. Then it started to happen every 3-4 months until about 10 years ago when I started at some times passing 8-12 a month and as a preventive measure a doctor put me on MS Contin so I was prepared ahead of the time for a stone to pass and then Percocet or Vicodin for break threw pain as the majority of the pain could be controlled by the morphine but the ripping up the inside of the kidney as the stone moved needed something more. At first I thought this was great because I was able to live a semi normal life working and being a father but after 6 years together the female I was with whom was soon to be my wife went on what was supposed to be a vacation from Phoenix where I live still to Sacramento and it ended up being a lie and she kidnapped out son and left mostly because she couldn't handle my medical issues and I don't blame her because I can hardly handle them myself and the past few years I have been at the edge of my breaking point where I don't feel like this is the way anyone should live both the narcotics and the constant kidney stones. At first 10 years ago I was taking the morphine at 30mg 2 times a day but now 10 years latter it's 200mg 2 times a day plus I get 180 30mg oxycodones and a few months ago that started to not be enough because my tolerance grows constantly. I see a really great pain management doctor and as long as I am open and honest with him he makes sure to take care of me and make sure I have the right dosages to take care of any stone but 2 months ago I was getting ready to lay down and watch T.V. and go to bed and suddenly had the worst pain ever from a stone in my left kidney where I usually do not produce stones as 85% have been from my right side. It was so bad and the only thing I could think was to try and get myself stable enough to go to the hospital without it being an even worse situation than it was. Unfortunately even after taking 4 Phenergan pills where normally 1 works without issues I was unable to keep down any pain medications. I had no way to get to the hospital as I do not drive nor have a car because of my medical issues and the frequency of my stones. Normally I can lay in bed as still and stiff as a board for the 6-8 hours a stone will take to pass threw my kidney but this one was the first that wasn't going to work that way. I ended up blacking out from the pain and attempts to get stable with my pain medications and woke up 8 hours latter still in pain and it was even worse , I couldn't even take a full breath without something inside me pressing my left kidney and it lasted for 2 days. I thought that was the longest I had even had to suffer threw for a stone to get threw my kidney when the pain stopped and thought it had exited and was in my bladder and for the next 2 days I felt no pain and then it was back and right in my kidney and it seemed it had just moved from one spot and got set in another for that time and luckily this time I was prepared and was able to get stable quickly but this kept going on for the next 6 weeks. Last week I finally passed it from the kidney into my bladder and this morning I was drinking lots of fluids in hopes to push it out my bladder but thought I had been feeling it blocking the hole a few times and after laying on my back for a few hours it had moved. Last night it entered the exit of the bladder not all the way maybe a corner or just a small piece of it but for some reason as soon as it got stuck there and I was unable to pee my kidney was in just as much pain from the start of this stone. I have never had surgery or lipotripsy and only one time back when I was 10 they tried Uteroscopic removal but failed and I have always passed my stones naturally and I have no medical and pay for doctors visits and prescriptions out of pocket and when I go to any hospital even if I have passed many stones there before the doctor instantly tells me I am full of it and am to young to be passing kidney stones and laughs when I tell him when they started and by the time I am leaving they are running to apologize and trying to avoid a law suite for their initial neglect. So now that you have read my history , both sides of my family mom and dad have kidney stones along with aunts and uncles and on my dad's side it was supposed to skip a generation so my kid's would get them but not me but since my mom's side also has chronic kidney stone issues I ended up getting the worst of it. I have been told by a few doctors after metabolic workups and other tests that my stones are the first case they have ever heard of that are caused by stress as I live a stressed out life and your body does not process things correctly under stress. Recently after some tests we discovered a tiny tumor on one of my parathyroid glands and they are suspecting that to be the cause. I really need to know what is the best method from reading threw these postings and seeing other sites where it states spinach and some juice ( have to pay for both names but I figured out spinach ) will actually break down the stone in your kidney and I really need to know ASAP because my next option with this stone as I know I cannot pass it on my own is to go to the emergency room and get it removed and even though the local hospital has a lipsotripsy machine I wont get that option without insurance so it will either be the scope grabber up the urethra or cutting me open from my side and taking it out like my dad's have mostly been done and that is also something I wanted to avoid because my dad has scars that go completely around his mid area with staple hole scars where they didn't use stitches like serving in Vietnam. I don't want to have surgery , hell I don't want to go threw this any more as time goes on life is wearing me down to where I don't understand it's point and feel this is no way to live. SO PLEASE if you can tell me definitively what the juice is to drink with spinach I need to know and you may be saving a life. My stones are Calcium Phosphate. Thank you in advance for any help , I desperately need it. - James

I have suffered from kidney stones for years and have had 6 lithotripsy's and a surgery for hypoparathryroidism which is basically abnormal parathyroid glands pulling too much calcium out of my bones and into my bloodstream, forming calcium kidney stones. Besides kidney stones, it also gave me osteoporosis. It may help to have your calcium levels checked if multiple stones are formed. I still have some stones left after my parathyroid surgery and recently passed a large 6 mm stone within 24 hours of drinking a concoction of 4 oz. fresh lemon juice and 4 oz. virgin olive oil. I took the mixture in the evening and in the morning and passed the stone the following evening. I'm not saying this will work for everyone, but it seemed to help me with a large stone.

Dana, I did use a strainer I made out of pantyhose. It could be the stones were effectively broken down and smoothed so that they were passed without recognition. When I caught mine in the strainer I didn't even feel them; in part due to the amount and force of liquid I was passing. I did not go to the bathroom during the process until I had all 6 cokes, the asparagus and about half a gallon of distilled water.

Posted by Dana on Oct 10 2011 15:11:33
After doing the Coke, Asparagus and Water remedy how long until you can eat some normal food? I found drinking the 6 cans of coke pretty hard ... the first 2 were pretty easy but the next 4 were hard (and coke is my drink of choice normally). The asparagus was pretty good. Hard to drink water after all that liquid but I'm doing it. Haven't seen any stones but I'm not really straining either. If it works I'll do it again the next stone (this was my 6th time in 20 years).

Corline. I've posted in 2010 and 2011 (Lisa) If I ever go through any amount of pain due to what I believe are kidney stones again I will not hesitate to take the coke and asparagus regimen again. I don't know why people shy away from this.

Coke and Asparagus WORKED FOR ME ! Too many of these posts leave you hanging as to whether a remedy worked or what they tried...specifically. I had been in pain overnight - excruciating pain the next morning - vomited and couldn't keep anything down. So, beginning on an empty stomach I began the coke regimen (one full can every 20 min for two hours - total of 6) Note: I drank the last can too fast and threw it up so, I popped a 7th and drank it carefully. Prior to the last can I had someone warm the can of asparagus with it's juice and puree. I ate the asparagus - all of it (it's not bad guys). And then immediately drinking Distilled water I had a gallon on hand but only got about a quart and a half down before I had to pee with a vengence (I had been able to hold all the cokes and asparagus and 1 1/2 quarts of water up until this point - I think starting on an empty stomach helped). In between cokes I had made a strainer out of a wire coat hanger and some pantyhose. With my strainer handy I did my best immitation of peeing like a race horse and wow - what relief - stones, stones, stones. I don't know why more people don't try this. Coke started out as a drug store item before it became a beverage. Who can possibly think asparagus and distilled water would cause harm.

Truth is that everyone's physiology is a little different and there are many types of stones and many differing causes. What may work for someone may have no effect at all for someone else. One person may need to increase their water intake while another may need to drastically reduce theirs. 24 hour urine tests may help to narrow down the cause but in my case was a total waste of time. Having had 26 plus kidney stones, 6 lithotrips of both types and carrying my current load of stones for over a year now, I can tell you that there is no sure fire cure for renal calcula. Consult a good urologist and in cases like mine a nephrologist to explore the various types of treatments available. Take note that many times the more stones you make increases the likelihood that your stone chemistry can change, requiring a change of treatment. Always consult a physician or a legitimate and well known homeopath before trying any wacky treatments or home remedies as much of the hype on the internet it not only a waste of time but can also be dangerous.

Stinging Nettle Leaf tea. Acute kidney stones or deposits? 4 glasses of Stinging Nettle Leaf tea per day until pain is gone, then 1-2 glasses per day for 3 months in the spring and fall. For men, it also reduces your PSA count (prostate). I know this because my dad just recently had a high PSA count but after 1 year of drinking the tea, it has dramaticly decreased. I can tell you that I have kidney deposits and it always happens in the spring and fall. Not sure why, but the naturopathy said this would happen. When I feel it coming on, I drink the tea and within a day or so, pain is gone. Hey, if nothing else seems to be working, why not give it a try? It's cheepest in the loose leaf form.

Im on my 3rd can right now. Doctors gave me tylenol 3 with codeine which isnt doing much for me at all. I will let you all know my results hopefully sooner than later. Ive been dealing with this stone for about 4 weeks now and just in the past few days has really been beating me up. Im using fresh asparagus, nit sure if it matters or not, i figured fresh is always better than canned.

Posted by Bryan on Feb 11 2011 17:42:22
I've had a kidney stone in each kidney for almost three years now, but I've never been to a urologist. I have had the cat scan though. It's been a rough time! I'm going to start the come and asparagus remedy tonight and all through tomorrow! I've gotta get these things out of me. I can hardly do any work. I urinate blood just from doing the dishes. I sure hope this remedy works, because I can't take it anymore! I'll let you know how it goes.

I was diagnosed by a kidney stone in the ER. It is the worst pain I have ever had in my life! It was 5mm and they released me and gave me Flomax hoping that I will pass it. I followed up after a week with the urologist and he first did a urine test then an x-ray and he told me that it was stuck in the ureter, so he was talking surgery. I wasn't convinced that I need surgery; I always think doctors want you to do the procedure that makes them more money. They always tell you, don't worry the insurance will cover it. I hate hospitals (BTW, the ER visit was my first time in my life in a hospital as a patient) so I started looking for home remedies and came across the coke + asparagus + distilled water. The science behind it made perfect sense to me so I tried it twice (one week apart between the two trials). When I did it the first time, I couldn’t hold myself and I had to pee three times when I was drinking the coke so I wasn’t sure if it worked because I wasn’t straining. The second time I was able to hold myself and only peed once, they say you are not supposed to but there is NO WAY on earth you could hold it after drinking the 4th can of coke. Anyways I started peeing and straining then I saw very tiny white particles, not sure if the stone is dissolved or broken up. I visited my family doctor today and he did a urine test and he said there is not microscopic blood which means there is no stone! He told me even if it is down in the bladder there will be some microscopic blood in the urine. I have an appointment with the urologist in a couple of days and hopefully he will do an x-ray or ultrasound. I will let you know.

I had a stone attack me out of the blue, horrible, horrible pain- right to the ER, spent a night there on morphine drinking water(CAT scan says 8mm stone, less than 50% chance of passing), waiting to pee before they let me home, i wanted to go home so i lied and said i peed when really only a brown dribble came out... Day two-vomiting, back to the ER, CAT scan #2 shows blocked and leaking kidney (into abdomen)... Day 3- fever starting, scheduled stent operation went home home with good pain meds and cipro course- then decided not to do operation, mom arrived with her home remedy of drinking bicarb/baking soda in water- super hard to drink, yucky. excruciating night- worst ever, total nightmare with no effect from pain meds, had stopped checking with strainer since i was given little to no chance of passing... symptoms stop, no infection. back home and x-ray shows no stone... anyone else hear of baking soda helping? no more stones, yet (8 yrs) good luck to all with recurring stones!!!

I have been getting stones since the pregnancy of my 4th and last child. I passed one while still pregnant, 4 yrs ago. I get them time to time..I found that drinking lemon juice and water throughout the day as well as a liter of pom juice helps a great deal to pass. I can only drink Pom 8oz at a time, per day for sugar reasons. I saw the deal w/ ebook cure, and am flatbroke so I am thankful for the comments here and instructions free of charge. I am going to try it but w/ cafnfree/diet bc of sugar issues.I will let u know how it goes..

Praise God. Kidney Stone symtoms suspected on Friday - pain eminating from very low (at the point of where pee comes out) and extending to the rear towards right kidney. I have a good friend that suffers several stones a year. So, I suspected as much. Pain subsided Friday night, but made it's presence know with a vengence on Sat. 10:00 a.m. - doubled over with pain in my abdomen & back but, the most excruciating was the lower pain. I am 50 year old mother of two. They were 9 lbs each at birth - I took no meds. The kidney stone pain was by far the worst pain. I sent my daughter to the store at 2:00p.m. Sat. for the coke, aspar, & distilled water. Begain the regimen at 3:00 by 6:00 was stone free. I passed three stones (may have broken up) with NO PAIN. By the way...after the second coke (and I credit prayer and God the ultimate healer) I was virtually pain free for the remainder ingredients. FYI: I drank the 6th coke too quickly and vomited so, I popped a 7th open. No doctor expense, no pain meds and completed within 48 hours. I won't wait so long the next time (Though Lord willing there on be one. No more coffee with creamer etc.) Praise Him & THANK YOU KAY!!!

I bought the e-book for the kidney stone home remedy. All that money for the asapara gus and coke cure on this website. However, it worked like a charm. It really worked. Instructions: drink one can of Coke (see on the label, phosphoric acid) each 20 minutes for 2 hours. That's 72 ounces total. Then immediately -- within 5 mins -- eat pureed asparagus, at least 8 oz, slightly steamed. Beleive me, it tastes good after all that Coke! Get the phosphoric acid into your bloodstream, then flush it through the kidneys with the asparagus. The Phosphoric acid will dissolve many kinds of stones, but not all, thought the most common are dissolved. Or at least reduced in size. I'm not sure how big mine was -- but 4 hours later the pain subsided. When I finally woke up after sleep, it was all gone. Please try this remedy before expensive doctors -- it can't hurt and might help you.

My first kidney stone was in 1997, was discovered in March and passed in May. Took some herbal remedies, but had to make 3 trips to the ER for pain. 2nd stone was dx'd in May of 2007. Did extensive research and began taking Stonebreaker (chanca piedra). Went to ER in extreme pain on a Thurs. Went online and read about the Coke & asparagus remedy, bought ingredients on Fri, did the routine on Sat. Btw, I bought sugar-free Coke (the kind with Splenda) as my blood sugar runs boderline. Pain increased on Sun, decreased on Mon, and I passed the 5mm stone on Monday night. This was a SIGNIFICANTLY shorter time frame to pass, although it was more intense...well, it felt that way as it all took place in abut 5 days, whereas the 1st stone had episodes that spread over 2 months. I think I've got another stone now... I was doing the magnesium and B6, but not regularly (darn!). If a stone is confirmed, I'll try the Coke & asparagus again... for now, I've started back on the Stonebreaker.

@ Tim R: It's okay to drink it throughout the day. I don't think anybody can drink the whole gallon in one sitting!! Good luck!!

Posted by Tim R on Mar 01 2010 19:37:09
Kevin Trudeau says: drink one gallon of distilled water combined with the juice of 5 organic lemons and 2 cups of raw organic apple cider vinegar every day for two weeks. he doesn't say drink it all at once. so, I suspect it is ok to drink it during the day.

i would like to know if there is a way to pass kidneystones with out getting them taking out by getting operated on if so please let me know cause i really dont want the surgery

Posted by Kay on Jul 25 2009 15:10:43
One more thing... It is 100% true that constant soda consumption dehydrates and can help cause kidney stones but these things don't form overnight. I didn't let this discourage me from trying this remedy. FLUSH and REHYDRATE after the asparagus and you will be ok. Miserable experience that it was, turned out a miracle.

Posted by Kay on Jul 25 2009 15:00:52
Also may be worth mentioning that I used a straw to drink the coke, seemed to lessen the need to burp which, after about 4 cokes began to feel like the need to vomit. Keep it down! It's no fun but it worked for me. Also, continue drinking lots of water ( forever ) and add some vitamin c to your diet. When kidney stones pass they tear, and you don't wantto get a urinary tract infection.

Coke and Asparagus kidney stone flush home remedy is as follows: first off, I am not a doctor, just a girl who gave this home remedy a shot with 100% success. It worked in 4 hours to help me pass a 4mm calcium stone (the most common kind). I had the stone just under 2 weeks and had been doing the aforementioned lemon and olive oil remedy for 5 days. FOLLOW EXACTLY and gather: something to strain your urine (I caught mine in a cup and strained it through panty hose) 6 cans or bottles or measured cups of 12oz COKE (all sites I checked said it must be coke, original not diet. That is what I used though I am of the opinion that diabetics could use diet because it's the acid that breaks down the stone, not the sugar...but that's an untested OPINION). 1 can asparagus spears intheir own juices one gallon pure water and a timer, timing is CRUCIAL. Start on an empty stomach, this is going to bloat you a bit. Every 20 min drink one 12oz serving of coke do this for 2 hours ( hence 6 servings ) try to pee as little as possible you want that acid in your system. Immediately after the last coke, have the asparagus mashed or purée ready and consume ALL of it. Asparagus is a natural diuretic and will begin to flush the acid from the coke through the kidneys. MOST IMPORTANT immediately after the asparagus you MUST begin to flush water back through your body. The soda dehydrated you and as you rehydrate (at least a liter the first hour after the asparagus) prepare for the pee of your life. Keep drinking water, you will feel like hell from all that sugar but the more water you force down the faster you will "eliminte" (and MAN ALIVE will you ever) and you"ll feel better. I began this remedy at 4:40, finished completely by 7:30, and passed my jagged little stone pain free at 11 pm. I'll never drink a coke again. Good Luck

Got diagnosed with my first kidney 2 weeks ago. For a few days I had no clue what was wrong. Cat scan revealed a 4mm stone at juncture of kidney and ureter. Doctor gave me pain meds and a "good luck" and sent me on my way. Went home and started researching, this is what I found. Stones 5mm or less pass without surgery 80% of the time. I tried the 2 oz olive oil 2 oz fresh lemon juice and while I have no doubt that it helped move my stone (and kept me completely off my pain meds) it was still taking to long to pass. I kept searching and found the "coke and asparagus remedy." I will post it here ( think I'm running out of room on this form.)

Posted by Agnes on Jul 16 2009 10:14:37
Ever since my husband started drinking filtered water instead of tap water, the frequency of kidney stones has been reduced. When he does get smaller ones, he uses an effective although unconvential approach...he drinks ALOT of beer..(like 12 cans plus)-not to get drunk, but to flush it out. Last one was flushed out in 4 hours!

Posted by co on Jun 05 2009 02:57:13
try virgin coconut oil. take one teaspoon per day followed by water. it works for my mom. good luck!

I may have misspoke. I meant a lack of magnesium and B6 will cause kidney stones. heh. Baked potatoes with the skin is a pretty good food for this.

Posted by TJ on May 04 2009 20:57:12
Very interesting Tim. I will definitely try that. I've been doing a lot of reading today, and I seen various websites saying a lack of magnesium and vitamin B6 will also do the trick. Maybe I will combine the lemon water with more magnesium and B6.

Posted by Tim on Apr 20 2009 03:01:17
Kidney stones hurt..... OUCH! I have to go to the Doc to get mine taken out. Just love those internal stints....whoa boy! Anyhow... I digress... drink 4 oz lemon juice and 4 oz of water mixed... its stout, but if you think cranberry juice will do the trick...you are wasting your time and money. The lemon juice will literally attack the stones and break them down to a more passable subject. I had kidney stones at ages 24, 27, and 29. Started doing the lemon juice and I haven't been stoned since, and I am 38 now.
