Has anyone heard of a way to disolve kidney stones? I have been told that Lemon Juice is helpful. I have been having horrific pain in my back and sides. I don't know if it is kidney stones or back pain from inflamation. I had an epidural but no good results. I am scheduled for another one next Friday. Docs have told me I have a severe inflamation that cause the back pain and that it can be very painful. However, I am starting to suspect a kidney stone. I hae some RealLemon Juice and have been putting it in water with olive oil and hoping that if I have a stone it will dissolve and pass.

My doctor had me drink cranberry juice. He said if you have just started having pain the stones are probably small and the acid in the cranberry juice will dissolve them. I tried it and it worked, I had to take the cranberry juice twice (1 full glass 12oz) about 4 hours apart and boom they were dissolved.
