Updated on February 15, 2008

From a disorder known as kidney stones. Hard masses are formed within

the kidney or the urinary tract. The stones vary in sizes. Some stones

are so tiny that they can't even be seen by our naked eyes. The

slightly bigger stones sometimes are an inch in diameter. The renal

pelvis and tubes can be blocked completely by big kidney stones.


four types of kidney stones, it is likely that you maybe affected by

one of the types. Calcium, cystine, struvite and uric acid are the

varieties of kidney stones, which affect our renal organs. Calcium is

the most common form of stones to be found. Your everyday food intake

consists of a lot of calcium and oxalate. Tea, pepper, rhubarb, nuts,

cacao and spinach are food very high in oxalate.

is caused by hereditary disorder. An excessive excretion of a certain

type of amino acid is the reason for the formation of this type of



Magnesium and Phosphate form a mixture that causes kidney stones. They

urine, which is infected.

often caused due to excessively high intake of proteins. Extremely

acidic urine has stones in it.

kidney stone is formed naturally and there are many cures to remove the

kidney stone naturally too. Herbs like Joe-pye weed, meadowsweet,

sarsaparilla and plantain are natural medicines to remove excess uric

acid from your body. The Chinese use these herbs in the form of a tea

to cure kidney stones.


stones tea is a tea specially made to cure kidney stones. It is made

from herbs like hydrangea root, wild yam root, cramp bark, Joe-pye

weed, yarrow leaf, plantain leaf and corn silk. The preparation is easy

and the tea is very effective. Take one and quarter cups of water and

bring that to boil. Add wild yam, cramp bark and hydrangea and boil the

mixture for 15 minutes on a low flame. Add all the other herbs and turn

off the heat. Let it stay in a corner undisturbed. Ensure you cover the

pot. After 20 minutes strain the portion and store it in the

refrigerator. Three to four cups of this tea is recommended. At times

bleeding may occur. If bleeding occurs, add about 30 drops of

shepherd's purse tincture. You can take this in the form of a tincture

too, by taking a couple of full droppers daily.

tea is another natural remedy for kidney stones. Made from dandelion,

corn silk, fennel seed, nettle leaf and oat straw, diuretic tea is very

the remaining herbs. Cover with a lid and set it aside for 20 minutes.

Filter and then drink a cup of this tea in the morning and evening.

3. Wild Herb to Cure Kidney Stone


North Americans found a wild herb called goldenrod, which is also found

to be very effective. If you are allergic to goldenrod tinctures, don't

try the following recipe.


a quarter cup of gravel root, marshmallow root, hydrangea root, ginger

capsules and 250mg of vitamin B6 and uva ursi capsules. Soak all these

ingredients in small non-metallic cups with non-metallic lids

individually filled with fresh tap water. Then boil the herbs and

simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a quarter cup, when it cools down and

freeze the rest. Buy fresh parsley that does not spray. Boil four

bunches in one quart of water for three to five minutes. Strain the

portion and drink it once it cools down. Freeze the rest. Make a

mixture of both the frozen contents daily and add 20 drops of goldenrod

tincture and one tablespoon of glycerin. Take a big mug full daily.

Drink it in small quantities and if you are allergic, start with half

the dose.

      Can someone explain to me why everyone is so willing to try some cooky "alternative medicine" remedy but yet they are not compliant with what their doctor tells them to do. If you go around seeking herbal remedies for your health problems and ignoring mainstream medical practice you will find yourself in trouble one day. Everyone wants a quick cheap fix for things, but if that existed it would be used in widespread medical practice. Also, don't tell me the doctors are just trying to make money with their treatments because I can promise you the people who are making these magical herbal products are definitely just out for the money.
