Drink 2-3 qts water /day. Believed to help stones pass more quickly;
Transdermal magnesium. Magnesium is a smooth muscle relaxant, which can help reduce pain and facilitate passing stones; NOTE that oral magnesium supplementation takes too long to increase blood levels for this purpose.
Anti-lithic (stone dissolving) herbal remedies can assist in dissolving small kidney stones. Includes gravel root (Eupatorium purpureum), hydrangea root (Hydrangea arborescens), and Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis).
Starfruit (Averrhoa carambola) increases urine flow and relieves pain.
Large stones may need medical intervention for removal. Either surgically or by being pulverized (crushed) with shock waves (called lithotripsy)
