Buyer beware.

I've had a history of kidney stones for about the last 25 years. About 5 or 6 times up until 2002 I would be in severe pain and would end up in the emergency room and given a shot of demerol and sent home to pass a stone.

In 2002 I had a problem with blood in my urine several times, which cleared up with Bactrim, but my family doctor recommended I see a urologist. Xrays showed I had about 20 stones and several were causing a blockage in my ureter.

Lithotripsy was done and I had to wear bi-lateral stints for a month which was very uncomfortable. I was given pain pills for that but I do not like taking pills so took them only when I absolutely needed them. I didn't know the essential oils pain formula then. I had side effects from the drugs after no longer needing them after the stints came out.

It took me 3 days to get over the "jitters" from the pain pills. Xrays showed I had 1 stone left and of course my urologist wanted to go back in and blast that one. After I quizzed him on it he said it probably wouldn't cause me any problem unless it started getting much bigger.

From that time till October 2009, I passed maybe a couple more stones on my own without going to the emergency room. I learned to use the DiGize (5-6 drops) blend vita-flexed on my feet and rubbed on kidney and bladder area that helped the pain and I passed the stone. Most of the larger stones were about the size of a kitchen match head.

In October I passed one with little discomfort using the DiGize blend. The next morning I had blood in my urine so to ease my mind I went to my family doctor. The xray showed 3 stones in kidney and 3 halfway down the ureter.

Blood was probably from those moving down ureter. The doctor and I agreed that we were going to watch and see what happens. He gave me some pain pills as that weekend I was attending a C.A.R.E. Training about 100 miles from home.

I started using the K & B as directed daily and used 15-20 drops of Lemon and Frankincense, each, a couple times a day helping to eliminate stones, so I did that for a few days then I would quit for a few and then do it again.

A couple of months later I was having some discomfort so went back to the family doctor to see what was going on. The xray showed all stones and they had moved down and lined up together about bladder entry level. So, I knew what I was doing was working. He suggested I go see my urologist. I made an appointment with a urologist about 3 weeks later. I kept using the oils and the K & B tincture.

The appointment with the urologist showed stones still lined up but moved down another 2 inches. He asked me what I wanted to do (same urologist that did the lithotripsy). I told him I'd like to pass them on my own.

I told him I was going to a Young Living convention in Utah in June so he said he'd like to take another xray before I go and then when I get back we'd decide what I wanted to do. I went home and continued the K & B tincture.

I alternated the Lemon and Frankincense oil with Kidney Stone Blend #1 in the essential oils reference book. I would do one for a few days and then do the other for a few days.

The weekend before I was to get my xray before going to convention, I passed a stone about the size of a large garden pea. Largest one I have ever passed. I was amazed! I had very little discomfort. I also passed a few small ones.

Then a couple days later I passed a couple that were about baby pea size. Never felt a thing. I wasn't sure if they were all out or not so anxious to see what the xray would show.

When I went in for my appointment and after the xray, my doctor came into my room and looked bewildered. I asked him if anything showed up and he said it was all clear. I then took out my little bag of stones and he couldn't believe I passed that large a stone on my own.

He was absolutely flabbergasted!!! He actually read to me what he wrote on my chart, "patient would like to pass stones on her own but I am not optimistic".

I thank God for the gift of His wonderful oils and Gary for his research and tenacity in providing us with the BEST!

If anyone has any questions, I would be happy to help.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: antibiotic — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
2.Associated topics: kidney-stones,kidneys — "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
