  • In USA - - they do it with laser -- breaks stone into very small pieces --like sugar -- and it

    comes out naturally -- with urine.

  • There are four major types of kidney stones.

    Calcium is the most common type of stone. Calcium can combine with other substances, such as oxalate (the most common substance), to form the stone.

    A uric acid stone may form when your urine contains too much acid.

    A struvite stone may form after an infection in your urinary system.

    Cystine stones are rare. The disease that causes cystine stones runs in families.

    Proponents of this home remedy recommend mixing two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with six to eight ounces of water and drinking the mixture frequently throughout the day, and especially before meal times to help dissolve kidney stones.

    If the stone is big (> 7 mm), the same can be removed by ESWL procedure.
