Kidney stones are small, hard mineral deposits that form inside your kidneys. The stones are made of mineral and acid salts.
Kidney stones have many causes and can affect any part of your urinary tract — from your kidneys to your bladder. Often, stones form when the urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together.
There are various procedures to eleminate the pain caused by the stones. You can undergo preventive treatment and also home remedies.
This is the ‘Lemon Theraphy” since lemon and lemon juice are rich im potassium citrate, which is often used to treat kidney stones.
Also, lemons contain large amount of citric acid that makes urine less favorable for the formation of stones. This acid prevents the small stones from becoming “problem stones” by coating them and preventing the other material from attaching and building on the stones.
Half a cup of this drink and you’ll have a problem-free kidney:
It is recommended to consume ½ cup (or 4 ounces) of pure lemon juice per one day or 32 ounces if you prepare lemonade. That is the same amount of citric acid as in pharmacological therapy.
You will need to dilute 2 ounces lemon juice with 6 ounces water and drink two times per one day. In order to reach the goal of 4 ounces lemon juice per day you should drink it once in the morning and second time in the evening.
