Anyone who’s had problems with kidney stones knows how painful they can be. Kidney stones are especially hard to remove, especially if they’re stuck in the urinary tract, which is a channel leading from the kidneys to the bladder. Even if the stones are in the bladder, they need to pass through this channel first. They can be especially painful for men who have a longer urinary tract than the average.
What Are Kidney Stones?
Kidney stones are an accumulation of mineral deposits such as calcium oxalate or other forms of calcium in the kidneys. Once these deposits accumulate in the kidneys, they form small stones inside. These stones can stay in our kidneys for weeks or months without causing any symptoms. However, when they start hurting, you will feel them in your back and hips, which is often accompanied by bloody urine and pain during urination.
Due to the painful nature of the condition, the stones must be passed before they block the urinary tract and damage the kidneys. Doctors recommend drinking a lot of liquids in cases of kidney stones in order to accelerate their passing. Analgesics can relieve the pain, but if the stone or stones are big, they may require surgery.
Luckily, there are many natural remedies which can help remove the stones from your kidneys. Below you can see a simple natural remedy which will help break the stones and assist in their removal.
Here’s how to prepare it:
- 250 gr. honey
- 250 ml. olive oil
- 250 ml. lemon juice
- 250 gr. parsley root
- A cup of maple syrup
Was the lemon and chop it with the peel on. Mix it in a blender, then add the parsley and mix again well. Add the olive oil and maple syrup in the end, mix for a final time, then transfer the mixture to a container.
The main active ingredient in the recipe is lemon juice. The juice will raise your urine’s acidity and help with the removal of kidney stones. Parsley is a powerful natural diuretic that will boost the production of urine, while the olive oil lubricates the stones and helps them pass easier through the urinary tract. The honey and maple syrup are added for the flavor.
