Dissolving Kidney and Gall Stones

A friend recently told me that she and her daughter were having problems with kidney stones which always happens late at night.  Unfortunately I was hearing about this after they received medical treatment for the problem.

Stone Dissolve TeaStone Dissolve tea is famous for its action as a dissolver for calculi (stones). Drink 1 to 2 quarts daily of tea made with apple cider to dissolve stones in the kidneys and entire urinary tract. The herbs in Stone Dissolve tea will also assist in the removal of gall bladder stones, and is soothing to inflamed tissue and assists smooth and painless release of the stones. The success of this herbal routine has been documented with pre and post x-rays and has helped many avoid surgery. Stone Dissolve tea is available in 5 oz, 8 oz and 16 oz bulk bags.

Last year on our blog I talked about a member of my church that had gone in for a“simple” stone removal surgery.  Something went wrong and he lost his kidney as well as needing bladder repair, spending many days in the hospital and months of recovery.  Sadly, this poor guy has not fully recovered and has had health problems since that time.

Years ago I was having back pain that just wouldn’t go away. After talking to a friend who was having kidney stones and comparing the symptoms, I felt pretty sure that I was having kidney stones. I started thinking about what I was doing that was different and I realized that I wasn’t drinking Jurassic Green like I had been months earlier. I looked up the ingredients in Jurassic Green and found that Alfalfa is good for dissolving gravel.
Jurassic Green
Gravel is the same as stones, so I decided that I needed to continue drinking the Jurassic Green.  After just one dose the pain was gone and it has been many years since then and I have continued drinking Jurassic Green and I have never had the kidney stone problem again. This is amazing because most people continue to have problems with stones. I don't know if Jurassic Green would work for everyone, I would suggest using the Stone Dissolve Tea as the best option.  Jurassic Green has been great for me on so many levels.  I like to use the Jurassic Green powder and add it to juice, it is also available in capsules.

There are too many risks for me to put my health into the hands of another person, no matter how much education they may have.  Herbal remedies are simple, effective and affordable.  How hard is it to make a tea or mix some powder into juice and drink it down?  It isn’t hard.  How happy are we when a health issue such as kidney stones happens to us and we have $20.00 worth of herbs that can take care of the problem quickly? We are very happy, and have more time and money in our pockets because we can take care of it ourselves!

Raw Chocolates made with Coconut Oil and Essential Oils

raw milk chocolate treats    I heard about people making raw chocolate and being a chocolate lover myself I had to learn how to make it.  There are many studies about the health benefits of chocolate, so for the best health eat raw chocolate!  There have been studies done on the health benefits of coconut oil which you can learn about on the Coconut Research Center website. There are so coconut oilcoconut oil
here at Herbs First for five years - shipping is only $10.00 for up to 4 gallons of oil!

raw chocolate ingredients  

 1 cup cold pressed virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon raw cacao butter
12 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 tablespoons agave or 2 teaspoons stevia

Put a cup of coconut oil in a 4 cup glass measuring cup.  Add the tablespoon of raw cacao butter on top of the coconut oil, I have found that it melts much quicker when it is grated. You can make it without the cacao butter, but I find that it gives it a richer taste with it.  Get a large bowl of hot water and put the glass measuring cup into the hot water - be sure not to get any water into the oil.  I let it sit on the counter for about half an hour to melt. 

mixed chocolate ingredients    When the oils are melted add the other ingredients, I like to use stevia, but the agave syrup would make more chocolate!  Stir completely with a whisk and then pour into your molds and add your add-ins to them.  chocolate almondPlace them in the freezer for 30 minutes and then pop them out of the mold.  Keep them either frozen or refrigerated because coconut oil has a low melting point.chocolate cherrieschocolate coconut    Pictured I show almonds, I love nuts!  Dried tart cherries, yum, chocolate covered cherries!  And my favorite coconut.  I now pour some of the liquid chocolate into a bowl and add the coconut to a very thick consistency.  I then spoon it onto a wax paper covered pan and freeze it. A coconut lover’s delight!  The first photo at the top shows a coconut chocolate done as this way.     yummy raw chocolate treats

  Another favorite is mint and orange flavored chocolate.  Be careful not to add too much peppermint essential oil or it is too strong.  I’ll pour out 1/2 cup of liquid chocolate and add 3 to 4 drops of peppermint essential oil to the mixture.  Same thing with the orange essential oil, start with 3 to 4 drops taste and add more if it needs more flavor.  Which essential oils would you use to flavor chocolates?  I love these flavored chocolates, very tasty!

   My husband does not like dark chocolate, so I decided to experiment making milk chocolate with coconut milk.  I use the full fat organic Thai coconut milk - I add a good 2 - 3 tablespoons to the chocolate mixture and it makes a mellower chocolate that he enjoys.  The photo of the three chocolates at the top are the milk chocolate, with coconut, peppermint and almonds.  We are loving these healthy treats at our house! 

   We went to a wedding reception a few weeks ago where they had muffin tin sized servings of MnM’s. They didn’t interest me, but my husband grabbed them. He popped a few in his mouth and turned to me and said, “yuck, your chocolates taste much better”! Yay, I have a raw chocolate convert in the house!
