Why has nothing helped my indegestion/Heartburn?
Since yesterday my chest has been hurting, I’d burp and vomit would come up my throat and go back down, My throat hurts, etc.
I’ve taken gavascon, It did NOTHING. I went to the doctor, He told me to talk mylanta, So I did that…
Nothing has helped?
Unfortunately things like indigestion as painful as it is, has to run a certain length of time before any doctor will start looking into any other reasons why this is happening. What you have to do, is to keep going back to the doctor if this continues, then they will have to start other investigations for what may be wrong with you. Sorry but often when we are ill, not all symptoms of something worse appears instantly, therefore doctors put things down to minor things that can be sorted out via meds like Gaviscon. When we are children as much as we hate going to the doctors, we think they can cure us first time, but they can only go on reoccurring symptoms. I suggest if Gaviscon did not do anything for you, and that is a good medicine, then something else is going on, so its back to the doctor.~ don’t ever sit back and take the first thought of any doctor, if something continues, then your body is actually telling you something is wrong. Meanwhile treat your symptoms as if they are coming from the stomach, watch what you eat, don’t eat greasy foods, fast foods, spicy foods and things like that, that will make matters worse. Remember your body is telling you something is wrong. I am going to tell you my story now, just to show you that you must always take things seriously if your body is telling you so.
Over 3 years ago I went to the doctor with same thing as you, but I was also having chest pains and pain up to the lower jaw, my own instincts told me it was the heart, my doctors disagreed with me, said I had acid reflux. 4 months on they finally sent me for an endoscopy examination, stomach was fine, still doctors said it was stomach acid reflux and stuck me on pills. Chest pains became worse, so finally they started sending me for cardiac tests, like running the tread mill to see how the heart stood up, for my age and energy levels I passed that, though it physically shattered me that day. So basically had I stopped going to the doctor then and accepted their word, then God knows what would have happened. But my instincts plus the terrible pain attacks I would get, had me going back and back time and time again, till finally last May they did an angiogram (3 years and 1 month from the first day I went to the doctor in the first place), and it proved I have a 6mm totally blocked artery in the back of my heart. I now am going in for an angioplasty in two weeks time, hopefully they will be able to get a stent in the artery, if not its open heart surgery for me. So you see always trust your own instincts whatever age you are, your body truly truly does talk to you. Doctors are there as a service to us, but some like us to feel in awe of them, a bit afraid to question their judgments, but they are there to look after us, make sure yours do just that, they get enough of a damn good wage so make sure you always get the best.
What is the best cure for a hangover?
On oprah Dr. Oz said sometihng about curing a hangover I missed it. It was suposedly the best thing and works almost instantly.
Do not have an alcoholic drink in the morning as a cure for a hangover. Another drink does not help and may only make your hangover worse.
· Some people think that having a cup of coffee will help to drive away your hangover. NOT TRUE. Avoid coffees and any other caffeinated beverages as they can cause you further dehydration.
· Take Vitamin C as it may increase the rate of alcohol breakdown in the body.
· Alcohol causes dehydration, so drink plenty of water. Also drink fruit juices and tomato juice.
· Bouillon soup or sports beverages (i.e. Gatorade) may help replace depleted salt and potassium.
· Try a cold pack to relieve headache pain.
· For a headache, take acetaminophen unless you have known liver disease or drink heavily and, therefore, may be at risk for liver disease.
· Alcohol consumption can irritate your stomach lining so avoid aspirin and ibuprofen since they may only serve to increase this irritation.
· For an upset stomach, try an over-the-counter antacid. Peppermint and chamomile tea may also help.
Prevention of the hangover in the future
· Never drink on an empty stomach. Food helps to absorb some of the alcohol and aids the body in digesting it faster.
· Try to eat starchy foods to slow down the alcohol absorption.
· Limit yourself to less than 1 drink per hour.
· Try to alternate your alcoholic drinks with nonalcoholic beverages such as water.
· Stick to non-carbonated drinks as carbonation can speed up the alcohol absorption.
· Try to avoid sweet drinks (and sugary foods) while you drink. The sweet taste of the drink can make it difficult for you to judge how much alcohol you’re actually consuming.
· Be sure to choose drinks with low levels of congeners (light drinks such as white wines, gin, and vodka) – these are additives that are found in alcohol that increase your risk of a hangover. Dark-colored drinks (such as red wine, bourbon, and rum) have higher levels of congeners and should be avoided as often as possible.
· Drink lots of water before you go to bed.
· Get plenty of rest.
Has anyone tried Accutane? Do you think the results out weigh the side affects?
I’ve recently been on anti-biotics to try and clear up my skin though I don’t think it’s made much difference. My dermatologist said that he would look into putting me onto Accutane after staying on the anti-biotics for a reasonable amount of time to see if they make any difference. It’s been about 7 or 8 months now, with little improvement. So I think he may eventually recommend Accutane. However, I’ve read a lot about it’s side affects and peoples own online journals while using the medication and I have to say it’s really put me off. To anyone who’s tried it, do you think the side affects e.g. skin gets worse before it get’s better, back pain, dry skin, depression etc. make it all worth it in the long run?! Do the results outweigh the side affects?!?! I’ve lived with acne for many years now and I’ve noticed lately, it hasn’t gotten particularly worse but my confidence is becoming less and less because of it and I don’t really want to go out as much. Sorry it’s such a long rant!
I tried antibiotics with Retin-A on and off for years, with no good long-term results. I also used stuff like Oxy, Clearasil, etc… Since I also had it pretty bad on my back, the doctor would give me other stuff to put on my back and this was all very messy. Then, finally after years of thinking that there must not be anything that really worked very well, a doctor put me on Accutane.
After 5 months on Accutane, my acne was gone and I’ve never had an acne problem since — this was about 7 years ago. Taking Accutane was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I don’t even have to think about acne anymore and it definitely was a source of constant low self confidence.
I remember having very few side effects. The main and obvious one was that my skin got dry, but that’s what had to happen for this to work. I put lotion on my face and lip balm on my lips every day, and this managed the dry skin. I didn’t have any other muscle or joint pains and I was the opposite of depressed. That is, I felt so good that my acne was going away that I became instantly happier, not depressed. I would tell everyone in the world with moderate or worse acne to try Accutane. My doctor told me then that I’d have a 90% chance that it would be totally cured and gone after 5 months and this is what happened for me. If for some reason it doesn’t work in the first time through, you can do another round and eventually Accutane will make it go away. I can’t obviously speak for everybody, but for me the whole thing about side effects was not a problem at all — it always seems exaggerated to me and you can always just stop taking it if you find the side effects too troublesome.
I hurt my back…and i know nothing about the back plz help?
I hurt my back 3 days ago hitting baseballs. It was not killing me instantly but the next day when i woke up.
It hurts right in the small of my lower back. Whenever i go from sitting to standing it really hurts and takes me about 3 seconds to get my bearings.
Is it just sore? Did i hurt myself more seriously? It is feeling a bit better now. I assume i should skip the gym this week right? I could manage the pain but the gym might hurt it worse?/1
If it doesn’t ease up over the next couple of days, see a physiotherapist, or doctor.
Don’t take advice from others, even if they have also suffered from a bad back. Everyone’s back is different, and what caused theirs to hurt, might not be what you have, so the cure could be completely different.
Ibuprofen gel, or deep heat can help. As can ibuprofen tablets.
Lower Back pain started day after lifting, bike ride, IF it is a herniated disc, wouldnt it be felt instantly?
Thursday: bought and lifted bike into truck,
no pain felt, went on bike ride same day all okay then , next morning pain was felt in lower back. Been ice/heat with not much success after a week. Hurts worse when i sit, and is better walking. Have slight tingling off and on in inner side of knee just above calf, but no “Shooting pains” down leg or butt. Does this sound like disc or muscle and is a week still to early to be worried?
The shooting pain sounds like something (probably the disc )is pressing on the sciatic nerve. If it is a herniated / slipped disc then the only cure is rest, ice/heat and meds (pain/muscle relaxant). There is also chiropractors, massage therapy, ect.. but unless your properly diagnosed I wouldn’t go those routes. It takes 1 1/2 to 2wks for the intense pain to go and it takes 6mo’s + for a herniated disc to completly return to normal so even after the pain is gone you’ll have to be cautious in what you do. Once healed you can concentrate on strenthing your core muscle esp the abdomin as these take a lot of stress of your back.
What to eat after a wisdom tooth extraction?
I’m getting all 4 teeth taken out. So far as I can tell warm liquids (ie soup and coffee / tea) are bad? Better to stick to cold liquids and foods?
Is this true? ice cream is better than soup?
tell me about the best thing and worst thing you did after you got yours out…
warm liquids are okay but not hot. I ate lots of puddings. Lukewarm soup. Soft fruits like canned peaches chopped up. Milkshakes but no straw a straw will pull out the clots and stitches. bad news Eat the milkshakes with a spoon or sip them. Stay on top of the pain by taking the pain meds as soon as you get home and take them on a regular schedule the first couple of days. Ice the first 24 hours then heat speeds the healing. You are a brave soul as I only had one side at a time done. A dull ache is expected but if the pain gets sharp or doesnt decrease over time you may have a dry socket this is an exposed nerve usually on the bottom and if the clot is removed. Call the dentist immediately. I had one come off the golf course the day before Thanksgiving for me. He packed a plastic ribbon covered with ground cloves in the hole and the pain instantly went away. I know sounds like a cure from the middle ages but it worked and I was so gratefull that the pain was gone. I had mine done on a Thursday and recovered all weekend was back to work on Monday. I still had food get caught in the lower holes but I got a squirt bottle with a pointed lid and squirted the food out of the holes till they healed over. On the hole it wasn’t a bad experience. Good luck!!!
Do you have gout cures? or any suggestion about gout?
I have gout it is becoming a problem to me now. Can you please help me with this?
Before I discuss about how to cure the gout, you must first have a clear picture on how gout comes about and how long it takes for gout to form. What goes around comes around. If you want to cure a disease, you must track down its root because it will always come back if the root is not removed totally.
Our blood pH must always be maintained at mild alkalinity which is at the pH range of 7.3 to 7.4. When you consume too much of acidic food such as meat, seafood, bean, etc. more uric acid will enter the blood stream and this will lower down the pH of the blood and triggers a series of homeostasis reactions in order to counter the acidosis effect.
One of the pH balancing methods is to force those excess acids out from the bloodstream into the synovial fluids in the joint as a ‘temporary parking’. When the concentration of uric acid in the synovial goes beyond the saturation level, crystallization happens and urate crystal is formed and triggers the immune reactions which result in inflammation, burning sensation and pain, intense pain called gout.
Now you understand that gout is the result of acid accumulation. Thus, how effective you can cure your gout is all depending on which direction your lifestyle heading to, acid or alkaline? If you do not take the initiative to reverse the acidosis process, your gout condition will only become worse and worse. The longer you delay, the much longer it is going to take for you to clear off those uric acid crystals.
If you still hope that someday someone will invent some magic gout drugs that can get rid of gout instantly, you are heading towards never-never land with your painful feet. There is no such thing as instant cure for any disease, if some drug company say they have the instant cures, those are only smokescreen that mask away the symptoms or pain, once the drug effect subsided, your gout pain will return and possible at twice the intensity.
Believe it or not, the ultimate principle of achieving good health is through common sense. You must first seek to understand your enemy (gout) before you try to cure it. The sad fact is, common sense is not that common after all.
Why is my heart beat coming from my ear?
Well when I got to sleep at night and I rest my head I instantly start getting this horrible pain as I’m trying to sleep, Its from the right of my ear and its like dum dum dum dum dum like a hear beat over and over till I eventually can get to sleep and I feel my head near my ear and its like throbbing :S Its so loud to me because its right near or coming from my hear and its really weird I dont know what it is??
The one that sounds like a beating or pulsating in your ear is called as pulsatile tinnitus.
Pulsatile tinnitus is experienced as a rhythmical noise beating just in time or in tune with the beat of your heart. The kind of noise that you may hear from this kind of tinnitus is that of a low-pitched thumping or sometimes a high-pitched clicking noise.
Since pulsatile tinnitus sounds like our heart beating in our ears, people may conclude that once you suffer from this kind of tinnitus there must be something wrong with your heart. That is not generally the case here. Pulsatile tinnitus is related with problems in blood flow rather than the heart in specific. What usually happens in this case is that when a blood vessel is narrower than the ordinary, an increase of blood flow in a certain part of the vein or arteries takes place. This is when the adjacent blood vessels have to carry extra blood thus resulting to a generation of a beating or pulsing noise.
The bulk of tinnitus sufferers have somehow damaged the fragile structures of the inner ear. It’s called persistent redness. This redness causes increased blood flow to the damaged tissue, which is present in the ear. This blood flow causes the ringing sound or tinnitus.
Sinus Problems also lead to pulsating tinnitus. Thyroid Dysfunction also causes pulsatile tinnitus. In a specific dysfunction Hyperthyroidism, causes increased quicker heart beats.
Pulsating tinnitus isn’t an illness by itself. It is the side effect or the after effect of the other malfunctions in our body. Finding the real cause of pulsating tinnitus is the complicated part. If its done the cure will be simple.
Another Q about heartburn, and sore throat.?
I asked a question earlier about my serious heartburn, and how i think that’s what is causing my sore throat. Is it ok to drink Hot Tea? Or what can i do to get my throat to stop hurting. It hurts to swollow, and very scratchy. I called my doc, and they said i could take Pepsid AC for the heartburn, but i just want to get rid of the pain. And is it ok to take the pepsid AC every day, or should i only take it if i need it. My heartburn has been VERY bad the last 3 weeks. Thanks everyone! I’m 23 weeks.
Heartburn is a painful burning sensation felt in the chest due to the reflux of acid. Some heartburn is caused by indigestion while some stems from the more serious gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). If you get heartburn several times a week it is important that you schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible, you may be suffering from GERD.
A good diet is a powerful way for you to cure heartburn at home. A diet rich in vegetables and fiber is a great start.
Here are some foods that can be added to your diet as home remedies to help stop heartburn, sometimes even before it starts:
a. Apple Cider Vinegar:
This is a good way to deal with heartburn, as natural apple cider vinegar promotes healthy digestion. It will also clear the body of toxins at the same time. There are several ways in which you can introduce this to your diet, for example, you have a choice between tablets, capsules or liquid. If you choose liquid you may want to mix it with some water and honey to smooth out the taste.
b. Peppermint oil or tea:
Menthol is the main ingredient in peppermint and it soothes the stomach. By relaxing the muscles of the stomach and the esophagus peppermint leads to less muscle cramping. Oftentimes this cramping is what leads to acid being pushed up into the esophagus. By eliminating this, you then eliminate heartburn. Peppermint also eases gas and symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Chewing peppermint leaves is another great tasting way to deal with heartburn.
Fresh ginger not only tastes delicious but it is one of the oldest home remedies for heartburn. Ginger reduces inflammation associated with heart burn as well as treats nausea. You can add ginger to your food as you cook it or you can eat it raw. There are also ginger teas and tablets at your local health food store. The average adult should take 500mg of ginger to stop heartburn in its tracks.
d. Fennel tea:
Fennel tea is another popular home remedy for heartburn. To make your own fennel tea all you have to do is boil a couple of fennel seeds in water. To add to the healing properties and the taste of this tea, simply add some drops of peppermint oil.
e. Baking soda and water:
This is a tried and true method of treating heartburn. It may not sound appetizing and let’s face it, it tastes terrible, but it will get rid of your heartburn instantly. Add approximately 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of warm water and drink it quickly. If you are on a salt restricted diet you should avoid this home remedy for heartburn as baking soda contains sodium.
f. Healthy anti heartburn fruits:
There are several great tasting fruits that can help to curb occasional heartburn. Fruits such as bananas, papayas and rhubarb have been shown to have a dramatic effect on heart burn. Papaya can be eaten fresh or you can choose to purchase tablets at a health food store. As for rhubarb, these stalks and leaves can be eaten raw. They calm the stomach and neutralize the acid that causes heartburn and acid reflux.
It is not an old wives tale that Chamomile tea soothes heartburn. Chamomile is rich in calcium and it will lower the stomach acids that are causing your heartburn symptoms.
Natural remedies like these are a great way for you to deal with occasional heartburn. Keep in mind that it’s important you meet with your doctor to discuss the dosages that are appropriate for you, as well as see if your heartburn is a symptom of a more serious condition.
Antibiotic drugs haven’t been conclusively proven to speed up the cure for common sore throats, and throat cultures aren’t all that accurate. Neverthless, if your doctor has pretty much ruled out strep throat or some other serious condition behind your symptoms, some doctors believe that it’s best to slow down, get warm and cozy and baby your aching throat, just like they do. Here’s what women doctors suggest.
Fill up your favorite mug. Warm liquids will not only feel good to your raw throat, but they will also help rehydrate your parched mucous membranes. Try to drink at least two quarts of beverages–preferably, caffeine-free–a day until you feel better. Perhaps this would be a good time to try some new herbal teas, hot lemonade or flavored decaffeinated coffees, says Penelope Shar, M.D., an internist in private practice in Bangor, Maine.
In fact, one woman doctor steers women away from antiseptic lozenges, or lozenges that numb the throat. They may contain ingredients that actually irritate your throat, according to Karen Rhew, M.D., of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders in Bethesda, Maryland.
In a pinch, candy will help. If you don’t have any throat lozenges on hand, and you don’t want to brave the cold and damp to get to the store, you can just as well use sugarless candy, says Dr. Shar.
Think zinc. Some people find that letting zinc gluconate tablets and lozenges dissolve on their tongues relieves sore throat discomfort. And according to a study conducted at the Clayton Foundation Biochemical Institute of the University of Texas at Austin, zinc gluconate is an effective reliever of sore throat. You can buy zinc gluconate tablets at health food stores. Follow package directions.
Swallow some crushed ice. Sometimes ice can cool the fire of your swallow, according to Dr. Rhew.
Add a pinch of salt. If your mother or grandmother fixed you a saltwater gargle whenever you had a sore throat as a kid, she was on the right track. Dr. Shar says that gargling often with warm saltwater can ease the pain and restore moisture to irritated throat tissues. Mix a pinch of salt with a quarter-cup of warm water. Repeat four or fives times a day.
Warm your neck. Holding a hot-water bottle or warm (not hot) heating pad to your neck can further relieve the pain of a sore throat, according to Dr. Rhew.
Mist is a must. Just as your plants become revitalized with a good misting, your dry throat will thank you for using a cool-mist humidifier to moisten the hot, dry air of your home or office, says Dr. Shar.
Take acetaminophen. Tylenol or other painkillers containing acetaminophen are best for upper respiratory infections, Dr. Shar says.
I hope that helps!!!!!!!
what exactly is a chiropractor?
what is a chiropractor? what do they do? does it hurt? how much does it cost? what are the pros and cons of this?
oh ya i forgot…
im a dancer. so please help!
Chiropractors come in a wide range — good ones specialize in spine problems, and to some degree, other joint issues. The far-out-in-right-field ones claim they can help you with anything by working on your back; be wary of those.
The most common thing that chiropractors do is spine manipulation/adjustment. They usually offer other treatments depending on your needs. Health insurance often covers chiropractor treatment, though they may need to be in your provider network (which is often also a good way to tell which are more reputeable practitioners!)
I had a back problem that wasn’t going away, and finally went to a chiropractor myself for the first time earlier this year; he listened to my descriptions of the problem, examined my spine, then X-rayed the problem area. On my return visit, he showed me the problem on my X-ray: I had a compressed disc, where two vertebrae were too close together, squishing the disc between them out into the spinal cord, causing pain. He then did a spinal adjustment, guiding me into certain postures then twisting or stretching me in certain ways until my spine went POPOPOPOPOPOPpoppityPOP and suddenly I was much less stiff! It only hurt a bit once (a certain stretch that twinged the problem spot in my back), and when I made a face, he instantly eased off. I found the adjustments a tiny bit intimidating — the sudden push or pull or pop was a tiny bit scary, but it never actually hurt, just seemed like it should and then didn’t! A qualified chiropractor does know what he (or she) is doing.
My particular problem took about 6 weeks to resolve fully — I had tried to wait it out about that long already before turning to chiropractic treatment, so it wasn’t just a matter of time, but the proper treatment helping the cure also. I definitely felt results from the first day; the first adjustment freed up my back a lot from how it had stiffened around the pain. Cost was low since he was on my health insurance; I only had to pay a co-pay, just as for a general practitioner.
has anybody use euflexxa for arhtiritis,a and are these injections effective?
I really hate getting poked by a needle. Are you considering
to try natural joint pain relief supplement?
The synovial fluid lubricates our joints, and supplies nutrients
to the cartilage. But as we grow old our synovial fluid supply
runs low and the cartilage dries up, shrinks and starves to
death. You could swallow barrels of supplements, but they’ll
never reach your cartilage — because cartilage has no blood
supply. It get’s everything from your synovial fluid.
To restock your synovial fluid, you need to load up on the
main ingredient, hyaluronic acid. When you restock your
synovial fluid, your joints rebound almost instantly…your
cartilage gains flexibility.

first before trying the injections.
Is it possible to pass kidney stones, and out of the blue pass another one 2 weeks later?
I had stones a couple of weeks ago and after about 2 or 3 days, I passed at least 4 stones. Then for a whole day I felt like I was dying and seriously thought I was in kidney failure. This morning I had the opportunity to go to the hospital and while getting ready to go, I peed and it seemed instantly most of the pain was gone. Seriously! It was as if I had to pass another stone, even though I hadn’t passed any in at least 2 weeks. It turns out I have a severe infection due to a stone getting stuck on its way out and tearing me up. The doc said there was no way of knowing if a stone passed this morning or not. Can a stone float around up in there and take 2 weeks to come out???
Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?
Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.
Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book “The Cure for All Disease”, explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
1/2 cup Gravel root
1/2 cup Marshmallow root
4 bunches of fresh parsley
Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
Uva Ursi capsules
Vitamin B6 250mg
Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage
Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.
Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.
Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.
Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day
Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.
Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).
There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.
Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.
You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.
