How to Dissolve Kidney Stones

(And how to prevent them)

Overview of Kidney Stone Treatments

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; oral magnesium supplementation takes too long to increase blood levels for this purpose.

Transdermal Magnesium Chloride


Anti-lithic (stone dissolving) herbal remedies can assist in dissolving small kidney stones - including 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)

Kidney Stone Prevention

GENERAL TACTICS to prevent kidney stones

Drink more water each day - at least 2 qts. /day


Dietary changes can be made to reduce risk of future stone formation - and aid resorption of existing stones. Changes are dependent on type of stones.

Regularly make and drink Dr. Schulze Kidney/Bladder tea in early afternoon and again in early evening - This tea tastes really good! - you can even add a dash of honey.

–   Pour 12oz boiling water over 1 rounded tablespoon of Dr. Schulze kidney tea -TIP: grind dry tea in a coffee grinder or Minimate®chopper for a few seconds to allow some of the chunkier herbs to infuse into the water better - however, to retain freshness, don't grind more than you will use in a few days;

–    Allow to steep 5-10 minutes

–    Strain into 2 - 8oz. cups - one cup for the a.m. and reheat 2nd cup or drink cold in p.m.

–   Optionally, add 1 dropperful of Dr. Schulze kidney bladder tonic to each tea - to enhance therapy


Dr. Schulze Kidney/bladder Tea and Tonic can be purchased at Dr. Schulze's website:


Prices (Apr. 2017): K/B tea - $20,K/B Tonic (called K/B Formula) - $28

Passed kidney stones should be analyzed to determine the type of stone and its likely cause - passed stones should be caught for analysis by straining the urine through a sieve.

PREVENT Calcium Oxalate Stones

Magnesium and B6 will dissolve calcium oxalate kidney stones - due to a lack of magnesium, this type of stone is produced when calcium precipitates and fixes to oxalic acid in such as potatoes, spinach and tomatoes; Studies have found that magnesium and B6 help prevent recurrence of calcium oxalate kidney stones by increasing the solubility of calcium in urine.Lack of magnesium is also indirectly responsible for rampant tooth decay, poor bone development, osteoporosis and slow healing of broken bones and fractures.

Note: Magnesium is not involved in the production of uric acid or phosphate stones

Eat less acid-forming protein and more alkaline-forming fruits and vegetables to lower blood calcium level - high-protein foods utilize calcium to neutralize their acidic effect on body fluids, including the blood. The irony here is that people eat high protein dairy foods for their calcium content. The alkalizing calcium (brought into the blood to neutralize acid formed from protein metabolism), overloads the kidneys, which excretes much of the calcium in urine. A better choice for calcium intake is low protein /high calcium /alkalizing foods, such as carrots, sesame seeds, citrus, and greens. (High-level blood calcium also contributes to plaque build-up in the arteries). Ounce for ounce home-made, organic carrot juice is on par with milk for calcium content, and carrots don't need to neutralize acidic, pasteurized dairy and use up calcium supplies.

Do not supplement more than 1 g/day of vitamin C - excess vitamin C in the body undergoes chemical conversion into oxalate leading to a rise in the levels of oxalate in the urine. Since accumulated oxalate gives rise to kidney stone formation, it is advised that people with kidney stones not exceed 1 gram /day of supplemental vitamin C.

Avoid refined carbs, drinking pasteurized milk and a sedentary lifestyle - which increase blood calcium levels http://www.healthline.com/galecontent/guided-imagery

PREVENT Uric Acid Stones

Alkalinization of the urine through diet can dissolve uric acid crystals /stones - the best alkalizing diet includes:

–   A diet high in fruits and vegetables - (raw is best) and juices is ideal - Limit or eliminate all animal based food.

–   A daily "green" drink supplement.

–   refined sugars, junk foods, alcohol, soda, coffee, milk, or teas except for kidney cleansing teas.

Avoid a high protein diet

Limit alcohol consumption

Do not consume more than 25g fructose/ day

Fructose consumption linked to kidney stones

Taylor EN, Curhan GC: Fructose consumption and the risk of kidney stones. Kidney Int 73 : 207- 212, 2008

A 12-ounce can of cola sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, contains 22.5 g fructose

Excess Fructose

Foot Relexology

Foot reflexology on the bottom of the feet has been used successfully to move kidney stones - However, you must work the area HARD - i.e. make a fist and use your knuckles to dig in deep to the area, or have someone use their elbow.

To see exactly where to “dig in”:
