I really don't feel like undergoing a lithotripsy (Especially not having any problems at this time) so i found this chinese supplement, but couldn't find any feedbacks. I'm mostly concerned whether it's safe to try, i don't mind spending a little money so even if it isn't as effective as it claims (I read it's even effective for oxalate stones), it's not a big deal if it's at least not dangerous.

Does anyone have more onfo about it?

I have kidney stones. Only hospitalized once because of them. (I say 'only' but I'd rather die then go through that again ... really). I haven't tried what you said but ...

- I immediately stopped drinking pepsi and coffee. Both cause kidney stones.
- I drink a ton of water now. Keeps everything flushed.
- For a long while I would put fresh squeezed lemon in the water. I can't do that now because of SJogrens, but it's supposed to help.
- Also ... lots of olive oil. Dip your meats and breads in it.

That's all the natural stuff I know about kidney stones.

(Man .. those things are evil, aren't they?? )

I haven't heard of that before.
I have a 3mm stone in my left kidney now, while I am recovering from percutaneous lithotrypsy of a 22mm stone in my right kidney.
I suffered from them for four months before being diagnosed.

My urologist told me to drink lemonade to prevent new stones from forming.

Water is the best natural solution for Kidney stones.

Stop drinking soda, stop eating processed foods.

Thanks guys, I'll definitely take at least some of the measures you suggested to at least prevent them from growing.
BTW if i decide to try the supplement, i'll bump the thread and let you know what the effects are, might be useful for some.

I had a stone get lodged in my left ureter about ten years ago, and that was painful.

I kept getting attacks, usually once a week with this bigger one, after a couple of months of it, I guess I got used to it. When I finally passed blood, I knew what it was.

If there are foods that are causing you to get kidney stones stop eating them, I'm pretty sure kidney stones are mainly a U.S issue..

eat healthy and you'll be healthy.

I need a list of ingredients and the company that makes it.

Every company that makes Chinese herbal patent formulas, aka not raw herbs you boil, but prepared pills or liquids, does not always use the same exact ingredients.
I believe you're referring to this.

There are other similar formulas that may have ingredients better suited for you.
Just reading stuff on line about Chinese herbs, and saying I want to take this, is not a great idea in some cases.
Other medications and predisposing conditions need to be taken into account.
For example, this formula I posted, has blupeurum in it.
If you have a liver issue, it can have severe side affects.

I personally, take something called URIFLOW.
It's a pill made in the USA, that gently dissolves stones with no pain.

I have had stones twice. I stopped soda and modified my caffeine intake.

If your stones are acute onset and severe, you should not play around with it.
Blockage over time, in a bad case, can kill a kidney. So be proactive about it.

No. They get stones other places in the world. Frequency may be different, but there would not be a Chinese herbal formula for kidney stones, if they didn't get them in China.

Yes, but if this person doesn't have them checked, they don't know which kind they hav.
There are two kinds of stones, and each is caused by different things.
Food is of course a factor, and eliminating caffeine and soda are the first two things you should do if you get stones, regardless of type, but it's not just an America issue was my point.
The OP is asking about a Chinese herb for kidney stones.
They get stones in Europe and Asia was what I meant, but yes, diet plays a huge role, but not always.
