According to statistics every 1 out of 10 people will have trouble with kidney stone at one point of their lives. The medical term is nephrolithiasis, the stone is actually made from hard crystalline material that comes from the minerals which are naturally present in the urine. You can`t detect them, there are no warning symptoms until the stone begins to move from the kidney down along the urinary tract. If you are the “lucky” one out of ten, than you already know how painful it can be.
Firstly we should try and prevent kidney stones from forming. One of the best and most efficient ways is by drinking plenty of filtered water. Also try and stay away from various food products that contain oxalate.
The recipe that we are about to present has proven efficient in preventing small kidney stones to grow bigger and it will spare you from any unwanted flank pain, nausea, blood in the urine, vomiting and the annoying urge of going to the bathroom every 15 minutes.
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
- 1 apple
- 4 slices of watermelon and
- 4 ice cubes
Serving 1 to 2 times per day.
Throw the apple and orange in a blender after slicing them up. Next, add the 4 slices of watermelon, the freshly squeezed lemon juice and dump the ice cubs into the mix. Blend everything until it becomes smooth.
If you can, I would recommend using organic fruits so you can feel to full power of this kidney stone juice. The citric acid (found in the lemon, apple and orange) is highly effective in breaking up the kidney stones, dissolving excessive amounts of calcium. Also, the watermelon is rich in potassium and water which are also useful in preventing and dissolving kidney stones.
