One of the most painful things a person can experience is a kidney stone. Calcium stones are 80% of what kidney stones are commonly referred to. This happens when normal calcium is combined with oxalate, phosphate, or carbonate.
Dr. John Milner, a urologist, says that lemons and other citrus fruits can help kidney stones by not letting them form.
Lemons are known to be very full of citrate and can also help to inhibit the formation of kidney stones. Lemons will help by raising the citrate level in the urine, which will protect against these stones.
Here is a recipe that can be used to help prevent and treat kidney stones:
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 2 tablespoons lemon juice
– 2 drops lemon essential oil
Mix all together. Drink a glass and then follow with a glass of water. One may drink this up to 3 times per day.
Lemon essential oil can also be applied topically over an area as a measure of pain relief.
