If you have ever had to struggle with kidney stones, we bet that you sure don’t want to go through that experience again. Sharp stones go down the slender tube, or ureter, leading from the kidneys to the bladder, and then from the bladder to the urethra, which are the stations that urine goes through before exiting the body.
Tiny kidney stones may not cause serious problems, but larger stones are usually followed by the most severe pain you could ever experience.
The good news is that a simple smoothie recipe can help you eliminate kidney stones.
Lemon is packed with citric acid, which is believed to be effective at breaking up calcium-based kidney stones.
Watermelon is also useful when it comes to eliminating kidney stones. It is a natural diuretic and also increases the urine production. It has the highest amount of water of any fruit. Water is essential as it stimulates the passing of kidney stones. It is also high in potassium, which helps to dissolve kidney stones.
For optimal results drink as much water as you can, and also a glass or two of healthy, all-natural juice. Juices contain citrates that help in the breakup of kidney stones.

Apple juice and apple cider vinegar
There is a good reason why the old saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” is totally true. In addition to their wide range of health benefits, apples can dissolve gallstones when consumed as juice or as apple cider vinegar.

This fruit not only dissolves gallstones but also prevents their recurrence and relieves the pain that occurs during the flare-ups.
