2. Dandelion Root Tea
Dandelion root tea is another home remedy that is often recommended. This has a number of benefits, not only is it soothing and able to help you to relax and reduce stress, but it is also useful for cleansing the kidneys.
What’s more is that is also a diuretic and encourages frequent toilet visits.
This in turn may be useful for triggering the body to purge the kidney stones. Drinking regular tea containing caffeine may also have this effect to some extent as this too is a diuretic. However, caffeinated tea is also a cause of hypertension – it increases the stress response and makes you contract your muscles, which may actually make it somewhat more difficult to pass the stones. Note as well that caffeine can actually make our sensation of pain more acute.
