Kidney stones can be a pain in the butt! Wait, no not there Scholar Mel. Actually they can be a pain in the urethra! I have had stones as big as boulders that required a lot of work to eliminate.
I don’t want you to go through the pain I have had so allow me to give you some tips:
Top 4 Ways to Get Rid of Kidney Stones
- Heating Pads: I’m not sure if this will help the stone pass but it will help the pain subside a bit by making your muscles relax.
- Stop Drinking Coffee: This is more for prevention. Coffee leaches one’s bones of calcium which in turn causes kidney stones to form.
- Drink Water: Drink around a half-gallon to a gallon of water each and everyday and you will have less stones.
- Drink Beer: No seriously! In 2012 I had pretty big kidney stone and was told I should try Hefe Weizen Beer. I drank one bottle on one day and then another on the next. After the second bottle I passed the stone within an hour or so.Supposedly the wheat beer helps round out the edges of the stone. Good luck!
