Aunt Julie's Lemonade!

My sister-in-law just gave me a great new 'lemon juice and kidney stones' lemonade recipe. Most lemonades are filled with corn syrup or sugar and are way too sweet for me. This recipe is just right and uses all natural ingredients.

It seems as though lemon juice, lemonade and other citrus drinks are good at reducing the number of kidney stones formed. They may also help in breaking down existing stones in the kidneys. I have also had success with cranberry juice.

What I like about this lemon juice and kidney stone recipe is the just right combination of sweet and sour. Some lemonades are either too sweet and loaded with sugar. This one contains 100% natural ingredients.

Of course, one of the biggest challenge for kidney stone sufferers is drinking enough fluids. If you don't already know by now, dehydration and low fluid intake is a leading factor, if not THE primary factor, in kidney stone formation.

Some people have trouble maintaining a proper hydration regimen by drinking simply water. If that is the case, you may want to try drinking this 'lemonade'. Get yourself a dedicated drinking cup with a lid and if you prefer, a straw. Keep it with you throughout the day. Take it with you wherever you go. You have to increase your fluid intake in order to alleviate kidney stone formation! Do whatever it takes to drink more!

I believe that lemonade is the best beverage for kidney stone sufferers to drink. Studies have shown that the citric acid helps to prevent further kidney stone formation.

Lemonade Therapy

As far as scientific research is concerned, lemonade therapy and potassium citrate therapy have proven to be the most effective natural kidney stone remedies.

Potassium citrate helps increase citrate levels in the urine to prevent oxalate from forming.

Lemonade is also effective in treating kidney stone formation and is recommended by doctors at the Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center, Duke University Medical Center, Division of Urology, Durham, North Carolina. Both produce higher urinary citrate levels that reduce calcium oxalate binding. Read More...

Has anyone tried this kidney stone "cure"?

It's all over the web but I have yet to try it. I may end up purchasing it just to review it here on KS911. Let me know what you think. Would it be worth it? Should I post the review here?

Let me know what you think.
