Combining olive oil and lemon juice is a popular alternative treatment for kidney stones. No current research supports the benefits of drinking lemon juice and olive oil to ease the passing of stones. Anecdotal evidence suggests the acid in the lemon helps break up the stones. The olive oil provides lubrication for easier passage through the urinary tract. After consulting a physician, follow the steps below to treat kidney stones with lemon juice and olive oil.
How to Treat Kidney Stones With Lemon Juice & Olive Oil
Mix 2 oz. of extra virgin olive oil with 2 oz. of fresh lemon juice.
Drink the mixture quickly. It will not taste great, so have water ready. If you have trouble drinking the mixture, try consuming smaller doses more frequently.
Follow the treatment with large amounts of filtered water. Drink as much water as you can handle throughout the day. Aim for 96 fluid oz. or 12 full glasses of water.
Repeat the olive oil and lemon juice treatment every 3 to 4 hours until the stone passes. About 16 oz. of the mixture should be consumed in a day.
Tips & Warnings
- Prevent kidney stones by drinking enough water to produce clear urine. Drink 8 to 12 glasses of water each day.
