Might be interesting to see if it would work, but I think there is a point where they can be dangerous and a visit to the ER may be necessary. Don't wait too long in the event that medical intervention is needed.

. . . The reason is that magnesium is actually very effective in preventing kidney stones. In fact, I recommend magnesium be taken to bowel tolerance to prevent . . .
There are many things other than beer that will push out urine. Water, itself, is pretty good.
Beer can be dangerous, especially if a an attack is connected to poor liver function - and in an emergency it can be hard to tell. The liver needs all the help it can get, also in case meds need to be administered for which alcohol would create a bad reaction.
Sorry, too, IMO - Diet Coke is very bad for us - for many reasons. The artificial sweetener can be toxic, especially if that can ever sat in a hot warehouse. It's not a healthy thing to consider in a medical emergency or even for consumption at any time. It's primarily a chemical solution sitting in plastic and aluminum.
Same with Classic Coke - any of that stuff that sits in a plastic lined aluminum can on hot warehouse shelves is not a health drink. The sugar is from GMO, chemically-ladened high fructose corn syrup. Also very hard for glycemic reasons - someone could go into diabetic shock from this.
If the author is saying that his treatment is "natural" and he suggests cola - that is not "natural" at all.
FLAVRZ may excite those who want some new beverage options in addition to teas (although it's not great if candida is an issue - it contains some sugar, it's organic, you would use very little and it also has agave to help stabilize the glucose response:
Flavrz is a concentrated drink mix to add to water. It is organic, made from fruit and sweetened,mainly with agave nectar. It is low sugar, less than half ...
Asparagus can be the vegetable but it also comes as an herbal product, usually as part of a formula.
Back to the book above, I always am concerned about the safety and authenticity of a treatment that says you can only get it "here"

I tried to find out what is being sold, to look at ingredients or recipe but I guess that is only the book. I'd like to see the Third-Party research. That is a must. They may well be in the book - anyone who may get it, please let us know what you think about the research presented for whatever he's suggesting.
Last year, I used Chanca Piedra for what was likely a kidney attack of some kind. (It's in my emergency kit.) Worked like a charm to relieve the unbelievable pain.
I also backed it up as soon my GP's order for Cipro was filled later that day in case of infection - but until I got that -
Stone Breaker kept me from having to be carted off to the hospital (where I would normally advise others to go but, due to my severe sensitivity and light and sound-triggered seizures, any hospital is very dangerous environment for me).
I had never used it before and was actually pretty amazed. Still, I would never try to address kidney or gall stones without talking with my GP.
I was lucky, too, in that my acupuncturist/ND was able to do a house call - she even took a urine sample to Quest for testing. She happens to live nearby and happened to have that morning free.
I will add that while Stone Breaker really helped at first, it was not enough alone. In addition to the Cipro in case of infection, the use of one vicodin was very welcome to take the pain down another few notches.
The acupuncture I got also seemed to help until the Rx was delivered. And my GP kept in touch with me for a few days.

Depending upon what is in that book (if it is beyond drinking a ton of Coke) - the links below are essential to read before using anything that has not been recommended by a licensed ND or L.Ac. who would know about herb safety.
