1 of 3

Kidney stones are a very common health problem. They form from the chemicals in urine, such as uric acid, phosphorous, calcium and oxalic acid. Other common causes of kidney stones are excessive consumption of vitamin D, a mineral imbalance, dehydration, gout and an improper diet.

Irrespective of the size of the kidney stones, they can cause severe pain. Other symptoms include a desire to urinate frequently, painful urination, nausea, vomiting and excessive sweating.


In addition to conventional medications, a majority of cases can be treated with the help of natural ingredients as well. Many of them also will help prevent stones from developing in the future.

Moreover, make sure to drink plenty of water. If you drink eight to 10 glasses of water along with other kinds of fluids daily, the color of your urine will become clear, which is a good sign.

home remedies kidney stones

Here are the top 10 home remedies for kidney stones. Also, do consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.


1. Lemon Juice and Olive Oil

The combination of lemon juice and olive oil is traditionally used as a home remedy to expel gallbladder stones but it can also be used to treat kidney stones. The citric acid present in lemons helps break down calcium-based kidney stones and stops further growth.

  1. Take four tablespoons or a quarter cup of fresh lemon juice.
  2. Add an equal amount of olive oil.
  3. Drink this mixture followed by plenty of water.
  4. Do this two to three times a day, up to three days. You need not continue this remedy if you pass the stones in a single dose.

Warning: This remedy may not be suitable for passing large kidney stones. Make sure you consult a doctor before taking this remedy.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar helps dissolve kidney stones. It also has an alkalinizing effect on blood and urine.

  1. Mix two tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of honey in one cup of warm water.
  2. Drink this a few times a day.

3. Pomegranate

Both the seeds and juice of pomegranates have astringent properties that can help in the treatment of kidney stones.

  • Try to eat one whole pomegranate or drink one glass of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice daily. You can mix pomegranate in a fruit salad also.
  • Another option is to grind one tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into a fine paste. Eat this paste along with a cup of horse gram soup once daily. This remedy will help dissolve the stones. You can find horse gram in Indian markets.

4. Nettle Leaf

The nettle leaf helps maintain the flow of water through the kidneys and bladder, thus promoting smooth urination. At the same time, nettle leaf helps keep crystals from forming into stones and keeps bacteria away. Nettle tea will also enhance the benefits of water by acting as a natural diuretic.

  1. Add two teaspoons of dried nettle leaf to a cup of hot water.
  2. Let it steep for 10 minutes and then strain it.
  3. Drink two to three cups of nettle tea daily for several weeks.

5. Basil

Basil is regarded as a tonic for the kidneys and thus it is good for the organs’ overall health. Basil can also help induce stone expulsion from the urinary tract.

  • Mix one teaspoon each of basil juice and honey. Take it daily in the morning for five to six months. If you do not like the taste of honey, you can take pure basil juice or chew two to three basil leaves daily.
  • Another option is to drink basil tea. Steep five to six basil leaves in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Add a teaspoon of honey and drink this tea after it cools.

6. Watermelon

Watermelon is a great way to treat kidney stones composed of calcium and magnesium phosphates and carbonates. The potassium present in watermelon is an essential ingredient for healthy kidneys. It helps regulate and maintain the acid level in urine.

Along with potassium, watermelon also contains a high concentration of water, which helps in flushing out stones from the kidneys. Eating watermelon regularly can help greatly in the treatment as well as prevention of kidney stones. You can have watermelon seed tea as well.

    1. The Lemon Juice and Olive Oil mixture really does work! I’ve had a number of Kidney Stones over the last 15 years. Not only does this mixture ease the pain, it seems to dissolve the stones fairly quickly and you end up passing them after drinking plenty of water! I highly recommend this based on my experience with it!

      1. How often do you have to drink this mixture, and then how quickly will the stone pass, after drinking the mixture?

        I have been to ER twice and Urologist once after hospital. All (3) times was given pain meds and instructed to drink plenty of water.

        I have been doing this for over a week now, and still have not passed the 4 mm stone.

  6. I have 2.5mm multiple stone for the first time i got severe pain n vomiting and even blood was present in vomit it was more in quantity is it normal i consulted my doc je said it was due to scratch in throat but i dont think that much blood is due to scratch plz reply

  7. i have a kidne stone of 5 mm size in left kidney from which when the pain begin start day by day with a long time so please tell me a good remedies from which it can be delete with root i hope you will understand my problem.

  8. To much animal foods such as dairy and meat leads to metabolic acidosis whereby the body draws on the calcium from the bones to neutralise the excess acid. And offcourse excess calcium from this process can lead to kidney stones and other conditions such as osteoporosis. The best treatment for such conditions is to reduce or best cut out animal foods and increase the intake of whole plant based foods. Fresh vegetable juices are good.
