Nowadays, kidney stones are one of the most common diseases, and both men and women are affected. If it is not treated on time, this condition may turn into a serious problem. But what if we tell you that we have a natural solution to get rid of the kidney stones? Which ingredient can help you to remove the kidney stones and improve the function of your kidneys? It’s the lemon.
Generally, kidney stones are treated with potassium citrate, and research confirms that lemons have this substance in their content.
Doctors worldwide call this treatment ‘The Lemonade Treatment.’
How does this treatment actually work?
The citric acid prevents the formation of kidney stones. In case they are already formed, it dissolves the larger stones into smaller ones. If your urine is full of citric acid, it means that the risk of kidney stones formation is pretty low.
Lemons and limes are the ingredients which contain high levels of citric acid.
There are also supplement forms of citric acid, often prescribed as a potassium citrate, but compared to lemons and limes, they are ineffective. Also they are very expensive and you may need up to 12 tablets per day. That is where you have the lemons.
Here’s the recipe:
Half a cup (4ounces) of natural lemon juice. Drink this amount in one day or make 32 ounces of lemonade. It is the same amount as the pharmaceutical prescribed therapy. This drink will protect the health of your kidneys.
To eliminate kidney stones effectively and naturally, make a mixture of 2 ounces lemon juice and 6 ounces water. Consume this remedy twice in a day, in the mornings and in the evenings.
