Home remedies from herbal teas and grocery foods dissolve kidney stones and reverse renal failure

by: JB Bardot

(NaturalNews) Kidney stones develop from waste matter hardening and becoming attached to the inside wall of the kidney. Most kidney stones remain unnoticed until becoming dislodged, getting caught in a ureter or other passageway, while moving through the body during urination. Most diseases of the kidneys remain unnoticed until the problem is severe. You can make a variety of home remedies using herbs and common foods to alleviate a wide range of kidney disorders, including dissolving stones and restoring renal activity.

Lemonade

High in the chemical citrate, the juice of fresh lemons helps dissolve certain types of kidney stones, according Dr. Roger Sur, director of the University of California, San Diego Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center. Drinking lemon water can help you take advantage of the these benefits. Mix four ounces of fresh squeezed lemon juice with two and a half quarts of water. Filtered or spring water is best. To dissolve kidney stones, drink the entire contents of this mixture spread throughout the day, every day.

Apple cider vinegar

Drinking apple cider vinegar adjusts the body’s pH and helps to establish an alkaline-forming state in the urine. Uric acid, the chemical responsible for the formation of gout crystals and urate kidney stones cannot crystallize in alkaline urine. Additionally, any existing kidney stones will dissolve in alkaline urine, passing from the body during elimination. Mix two to four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in eight to 12 ounces of filtered or spring water and drink twice daily to dissolve kidney stones. Cut back on the amount of vinegar if it’s too strong, and work to build up to the full amount.

Cranberry juice

An old-time folk remedy, cranberry juice has found its place in the medical world as an effective treatment for both preventing kidney stones and relieving a variety of urinary tract disorders, according to the British Journal of Urology. It is high in nutrients such as anthocyanins, vitamin C, and antioxidants, all known to reduce inflammation. Mix one cup of unsweetened cranberry concentrate with three cups of pure water. Sweeten with honey or stevia and drink spread throughout the day, every day.

Parsley and dandelion

Both parsley and dandelion have exceptional medicinal properties that relieve urinary tract disorders. Both herbs are natural diuretics, stimulating urinary output and flushing the system of waste materials that contribute to the formation of kidney stones. They remove toxins, cleanse the kidneys, dissolve uric acid, and create an alkaline-forming environment in the kidneys and bladder, helping urine maintain a neutral or slightly alkaline pH. Use either herb as tea or chop and add fresh parsley or dandelion greens to salads. You can also throw them into a green smoothie or juice them to obtain their benefits.

Marshmallow root

Marshmallow root is known for treating urethritis and helping to flush kidney stones. It produces mucilage, a thin mucus film that coats the urinary tract as well as the entire digestive tract, protecting the lining from ongoing assaults from toxins. Best taken as an herbal tea.

Buchu

Buchu is used to relive inflammation of the urinary tract and possesses antibacterial properties. As a tea, it helps with treatment of the kidneys, relieves cystitis, and acts as a diuretic. It increases urine production and stimulates excretion. Not advised during pregnancy. This herb should be used only under supervision, as too high a dose can cause kidney irritation.

Chinese rhubarb

Making tea with Chinese rhubarb can reverse end-stage kidney disease and prolong life by slowing down the progression of renal failure. Use the herb only under supervision, as it can cause side effects and needs to be administered under strict dosage guidelines.
