lemon juice for kidney stonesKidney stones are one of the most painful medical conditions that you can experience. The pain caused by these tiny stones can be excruciating and debilitating. People who are prone to kidney stones can use lemons and lemon juice as a natural kidney stone prevention method.

The Benefits of Lemon Juice – A Word from the Experts

The standard medical treatment for kidney stones is potassium citrate, research has found that lemons have a unique property – they are high in natural citrate. Doctors and medical experts have discovered that lemon juice can be an effective preventative therapy for people who are prone to frequent kidney stones; they are calling this ‘Lemonade Therapy.’

What is Lemonade Therapy?

Lemonade therapy basically aims to increase the consumption of lemon juice in your diet. You can simply make lemonade (preferably without adding too much sugar) or combine lemon juice with other natural ingredients.

Does Lemon Juice Dissolve Kidney Stones?

  • Lemons are a highly citric fruit; they contain citrate, a chemical which is a main inhibitor of calcium stone formation and can also break up small stones that might combine into bigger stones.
  • It decreases the acidity of urine; this prevents the formation of calcium oxalate and uric acid stones.
  • Lemon juice helps break up kidney stones and dissolves them so they can pass easily from the kidney to the bladder through urination.
  • It contains a natural antiseptic that helps prevent bacteria growth in the kidney, therefore reducing the chance of infections occurring.
  • It helps keep you hydrated and pass a lot of urine.

I passed the 7mm and one 5mm with the stent in place which is uncommon. Along with much healing prayer I drank 4oz of fresh lemon juice and 4oz of olive oil for two days. Once the stent was removed I passed the other 5mm stone. So I highly recommend this combination. Hope this helps some of you as well.

  53. I have a 5mm kidney stone caused by uric acid. My doctor proposed eswl but am afraid of the side effects. Can I take lemon or apple cider vinegar to help dissolve it? Are they not acidic? Which home remedy can you recommend for me. Thank you

  54. This makes no sense. The digestive system is not connected to the kidneys so olive oil cannot ‘lubricate’ the kidney or ureter. Drinking lemon juice when you eat fooed high in oxalates like broccolli or cauliflower will counter act the effect of the oxalates that can build a stone , but once you have a stone that starts to reach the size of 5 mm it will not pass through the ureter. It will get stuck at 3 different places from the kidney to the bladder. I used to do IVP tests on people that had kidney stones 40 years ago. Sometimes the IVP contrast would flush the stone out if it was small enough. I did hundreds of those tests and saw it happen twice. The people experienced immediate relif within 3 minutes of the injection of aprroximately 60ccs of the contrast material because it ws designed to be absorbed by the kidneys to make them visible on X-Ray. However on calcium oxalate stones were visible on a plain X-Ray. A Ct scan however will show all three types of those stones with out contrast. I did hundreds of those scans as well.
