Kidney stones? You have to drink huge amounts of water (or lemonade). My military-Reservist MD put me on his diet, as he suffered from kidney stones as well. How lucky is that to find a doctor with the same ailment? :)

I'm on a successful diet that excludes my favorite foods that started it all.

Excluded: chocolate, cabbage, nuts, okra, spinach, celery, kohlrabi, soy, beans, seasoned meats, milk and colored beverages.

Google oxalates.

“Now, how do I stop these darn kidney stones? Yeah, I drink lots of lemonade.”

a/ drink WATER AND MORE WATER.

b/ lay off dairy if the stones are calcium, and go to drug store, buy ph strips, check the ph of your urine, take inexpensive OTC sodium bicarbonate pills if too base (not acidic enough).

I am NOT an MD but I had chronic kidney stones for years and this helped immensely.

ASK YOUR DOCTOR about the above.
