I have found relief from kidney stones by grinding up a magnesium citrate pill or two (Would total 400miligrams) and adding it to the quart mug of water that I drink from. Add a little water and it mixes and forms a better solution and therefore has better ability to dissolve.
It seems to help relax me as well as provide relief from the sticking and binding pain of a kidney stone when reaching down for something.
I am doing this to all the water I drink in a day and at night in an effort to dissolve any stones.
And yes I have passed them before and almost blacked out from the pain of passing one. I then brought the stones to a doctor for analysis and found out they were calcium oxylate.
This remedey seems to be working for me. There is less pain and I am able to get more work done. It doesn't taste bad either. In effect what has been created is mineral water!
