Kidney stones are small crystals in the urine. They usually travel from the kidney and out of the body, during urination. However, some may get lodged in the kidney, causing excruciating pain.
Kidney stones can be treated. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to treat it. Here are a few below:
Drink Plenty Of Water: Drinking plenty of water, will help increase urine output. This can help you pass the kidney stones. You should drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Drink enough until your urine turns clear or yellow.
Celery Juice: It helps to relieve the pain and clear out the bacteria. It also acts as a diuretic, which will help increase urine volume and flush out the stones. Drink a glass of celery juice or herbal tea made with celery seeds.
Apple Cider Vinegar: It has an alkalinizing effect on the blood and urine. This helps the digestive system to break down the kidney stones. Just add two tablespoons of vinegar and one teaspoon of honey, in a cup of warm water. Drink this throughout the day.
Nettle Leaf: It acts as a diuretic, by increasing urine output. It also keeps crystals from forming into stones, and helps remove bacteria. Just add two teaspoons of dried nettle leaf to a cup of hot water. Then, let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain it and drink at least three cups a day. Drink it for several weeks.
