I just had emergency kidney stone surgery. One was too big and stuck in the ureter. I went to my Uro. for followup and to my surprise he said I still have 4 stones in each kidney I need removed. One on each side is too big for me to ever pass. Plus each side has 3-4 little ones they will remove also. This is after I passed 11 stones with the stent in from the emergency surgery. Thank goodness much less pain. The Uro and my doctor tell me I have to have my 3/4 of my parathyroid removed because the blood work numbers indicated it is way too high and was the culprit stone maker. Has anyone else had this experience? I hear kidney stones and Lyme can go together.

Good luck...

I am sooo sorry to hear about your ordeal. I can tell you that my initial kidney stones had me loopy and vomiting green bile as green as grass. Not a good day. Hope you ultrasound will show you something and they can help you.

Chanca Piedra (aka: Stonebreaker) kept me out of the hospital a few years ago with an attack hit. It is also an herb used to help against malaria.

Keebler, that looks like a great product.

It sounds great for cozynana, I'm not sure if I have stones, so do you think I should take it because I have a UTI?

Steve,

I think anyone who has every had a kidney stone (or whoever might) should have this at the ready. It's amazing.

You might enjoy reading about it (it also treats malaria . . . and we know that things that treat malaria can also be helpful with babesia).

This is also in Rain-Tree's SPIRO capsules.

The tincture will work more quickly but I think the capsules stay in the system for a more consistent level. Very relaxing.

Page 110 of the Amazon book lists this at the first in their list of what can help UTI.

Google: Chanca+Piedra, UTI

I don't know how this would interact with any Rx. If on any Rx, be sure to study that aspect of it.

If your doctor is not sure, you can find the kind of doctors who will know about it, or other methods, here:

I remember reading a long time ago that kidney stones result from a raging calcium deficiency (this is in direct opposition to the conventional thinking that they stem from too much calcium). I would study this extensively myself before taking an action step. Just thought I'd share....

Good luck.

In 1974, researchers from Harvard had a study printed in the Journal of Urology showing that calcium oxalate kidney stones (the most common kind) could be prevented by supplementing with magnesium oxide and vitamin B6.

In the study, 149 individuals with a multiyear history of recurrent calcium oxalate kidney stones took 300 mg per day of magnesium oxide along with 10 mgs a day of vitamin B6.

During the six years of the study, the mean rate of stone formation fell from 1.3 kidney stones per year to 0.1 kidney stones per year, a very significant 92.3 percent reduction.
There were no side effects.

Yet even into the 90s, most urologists were still in the dark about this natural treatment at least it seemed that way to me, since they never mentioned it to their patients.
I made sure I always kept copies of the study on hand for calcium oxalate kidney stone sufferers to give to their uninformed urologists.

And it still amazes me that to this day, I continue to encounter a few calcium oxalate kidney stone sufferers whose urologists havent told them to use magnesium and vitamin B6 every day!
