A highly recommended treatment for calcium-oxalate stones is a kidney cleansing which involves you drinking a huge amount of liquid (fresh squeezed juices, smoothies, teas, and purified water) while you watch what you eat. The cleaning time could be between 1 to 5 days depending on the size of the kidney stones. This option is considered to be very effective in making the kidney fully functional.
A kidney cleanse is also good for other types infections such as yeast infections. A favourite kidney cleanse involves a lot of watermelon.
