Got a Kidney Stone?

Posted by  | Wednesday, May 18, 2011  at 5:00 AM  
I was told recently that I had kidney stone and was then advised to do a kidney flush that will flush the stone out before it causes me any pain. I am always for preventative measures, so I was all for it. Here's the information I was given from HCMI (Health Care Ministry International) to pass a kidney stone naturally and pain-free:

"Most kidney stones can pass through the urinary system on their own. Drinking plenty of water (2 to 3 quarts a day) helps move a stone through the urinary system more quickly. You may need to stay home during this process, taking pain medication as needed. Urologists usually ask their patients to save passed stone(s) for testing. The testing helps discover the chemical make-up of the stone and other information needed to decide how to prevent recurrence (stop more stones from forming). You can catch the stone in a cup or tea strainer used only for catching urine samples.

Home-made Kidney Stone Remedy

Reported to work 80% of the time. . . It’s not Coke and rum, it’s Coke and asparagus. The phosphoric acid in Coke helps break down the stones and the asparagus acts as a diuretic to flush out the tiny crystals. The pH change produced by the Coke causes increased hydrogen ion secretion in the nephons of the kidney.

Required Ingredients:

• 6-pack of Coca-Cola, or a 2-liter bottle of Coke ( I used a 2-liter of Decaf Coke). Pepsi would probably work, too—but, we have not established proof of its effectiveness yet. Note: The original Kidney Stone Removal Remedy calls for Classic Coke™. However, we have learned that Diet and Caffeine-Free versions also work! Both have phosphoric acid—this is one of the main catalysts for dissolving your kidney stones. In addition, due to its high phosphoric acid content, Dr. Pepper would likely work as well.

• 6–8 oz. of asparagus. Canned or frozen generally works, but fresh is best.

• A high-speed blender.

• One gallon of Distilled water. (Must be distilled, not tap.)

Procedure:

1. Over the course of 2 hours, drink the 72 ounces of Coke. Drink it warm or hot, it does not matter. Try to wait as long as is humanly possible before you urinate. The longer you wait, the longer the Coke has the opportunity to dissolve your kidney stones. (After I did this, I never wanted to see a bottle of coke again.)

2. Steam or quickly boil the asparagus. Process in the blender until well-puréed (liquid-no more chunks). (I used canned asparagus because time was limited.)

3. Within 5 minutes from drinking the last 12 ounces, eat the asparagus purée. Rather than simply gulping it down, try to mix the purée well with your saliva.

The remedy begins working immediately and, within a few hours, you’ll begin to pass the stones through your urine as sand-like particles. If you are not getting relief in a matter of hours, feel free to tray again, or try some of the other suggestions below.

Keys to Success:

• The remedy works best if done on an empty stomach.

• Time of day does not dictate results, but morning may be best so you are not drinking all that caffeine before you try to sleep.

• Continue to drink a large quantity of distilled water immediately after taking the asparagus. The water will serve to re-hydrate your body. The qualities of Coke will begin to dehydrate you, so the water helps to prevent this from happening. ( I drank so much water afterward and was still so thirsty the rest of the day.)

• Although you can resume your normal diet immediately after you finish this remedy, it is best to wait between one and two hours before eating to allow the remedy to achieve the best results.

• If the kidney stones are not all passed the first day, repeat the process within 3 days. If you have a scheduled surgery, repeat the next day!

• Coke is not a preventative for stones. Actually, any soda pop with caffeine will dehydrate the body and lead to a higher potential of stones. For the remedy, the coke is used for its chemical properties and interaction with the asparagus. "
 
 
Can you believe that of all things, "Coke" was suggested?! The person who taught me how to do this flush would never have suggested that I consume a whole 2-liter of coke if it really didn't work.  There was a lady who heard her kidney stone hit the toilet with a little *ding*! Had she not heard it, she wouldn't have known she passed one, because there was no pain. She was a teacher and kept her stone to take in to show her students. :) 
 
Google it for yourself and give it a try! What could it hurt?
