Kidney stones are hard mineral and salt deposits that form inside the kidney. They can be painful to pass, but don’t normally cause any long-term damage.

Like snowflakes, no kidney stone is quite the same in size and shape. Some may only be a fraction of an inch, while others might grow to several inches in diameter. In rare cases, kidney stones can grow to such a size that they take up the whole kidney.

Why do we get kidney stones?

Kidney stones form when too many crystal-forming substances, like calcium and uric acid, are accumulated in your urine. These crystals are usually diluted, but in excess, they can gather together and form a crystal mass, known as a kidney stone.

You can avoid kidney stones by staying hydrated, eating less sodium, and eating more calcium rich foods. But if you have a kidney stone and need to know how to dissolve it naturally, this video will explain everything you need to know.

Dissolving a kidney stone

Unfortunately, the reality of a kidney stone is that it has to come out of your body one way or another. When a kidney stone is in its hardened form, it’s incredibly painful to pass – in fact, many people are in agreement that kidney stones produce some of the worst pain a human can feel.

It’s unsurprising that you might want to know how to break down a kidney stone to make it easier to get out of your system. Stay tuned for the best home remedies to quickly dissolve kidney stones:

1. Water with a squeeze of lemon

drink lots of water and try to add a squeeze of lemon

First thing’s first, you need to stay as hydrated as possible. Drinking plenty of water can help your kidney stone to pass out of your system at a faster rate. 


Adding a squeeze of lemon juice will provide additional benefits – lemons contain citrate, which breaks up smaller kidney stones, helping them to pass more easily.

2. Basil juice

Basil juice can relieve painful symptoms of kidney stones

You might be more used to basil as a pizza topping, but it can also be used in larger quantities as a juice to relieve painful symptoms of kidney stones. Basil is packed with something called acetic acid, which helps to break down the kidney stones and reduce discomfort. It’s also full of nutrients, which is always an added bonus.

3. Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is known and loved for its health properties, and of course, it’s also proven effective in dissolving kidney stones. This is because it contains acetic acid, which can help flush out the kidneys and ease the pain caused by kidney stones. 


Just two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar a day is thought to work wonders.

4. Celery juice

Celery is effective clearing away toxins that contribute to kidney stone formation

Here’s a way to stay hydrated and naturally dissolve your kidney stones: with celery juice. It might not be the most exciting beverage around, but celery juice is particularly effective in clearing away toxins that contribute to kidney stone formation, as well as flushing your system, helping you to pass a kidney stone quicker.

5. Kidney bean broth

What do you usually do with the broth from cooked kidney beans? Unless you’re making a soup, you probably pour it down the drain – but don’t be so quick to do so if you’re suffering with kidney stones. 


Ironically, given their name, the liquid used to cook kidney beans has been used for hundreds of years as a tonic for flushing out and dissolving kidney stones.

You’re probably starting to see a bit of a trend now – and here’s another liquid-based remedy that’s said to work favourably for people dealing with kidney stone issues: pomegranate juice.

We’ve already mentioned adding lemon juice to your water, but citrus fruits in general are all incredibly powerful in dissolving kidney stones.

Organic dandelion root helps to cleanse the kidneys and support normal kidney functioning.
