Paul’s Story – No More Kidney Stone Pain!
Like many people, Paul has suffered painful kidney stone attacks in the past and would do anything to prevent another one. So he followed his doctor’s orders to drink lots of water and stop eating certain foods, but just two weeks after his urologist told him to come back in a year, he ended up in the Emergency Room again with excruciating pain. Following is an excerpt from our Hub Page article on how Costa Rica healthcare ended his pain, and how it can end yours too:
A week later, I took the results back to Dr. Johnny. Sure enough, I had a stone, so he sent me to get an ultrasound (cost: $30). Yes, they confirmed, I had a 7mm stone attached to the wall of my kidney. He told me to drink lots of water and take Chanca Piedra.“Chanca what??” I asked. Before purchasing it at our local macrobiotica (health food store), we looked it up on the Internet. We found that there had been over 300 studies with positive results and no side effects. According to these unofficial studies, Chanca Piedra worked quickly, sometimes in just a few weeks, to break up the stones and allow them to pass harmlessly through the urinary tract…
I’ve never been a great believer in natural cures, but I’m a believer in Chanca Piedra. This stuff is great. I think it works — at least I haven’t had another kidney stone attack since I’ve been in Costa Rica. But I did have that 7mm stone in my kidney just waiting to grow and descend. It’s two years later, and I’m still waiting, thank God!
A great source for Chanca Piedra is Whole World Botanicals because their products are made of the highest quality, single source botanicals from the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon rainforest, and are Certified Organic. They have been in business for 14 years and buy medicinal plants directly from the local/native people who grow or collect them whenever possible and to practice fair trade with them. They also have lots of helpful information about Chance Piedra on their website. They explain the many other traditional uses as well, including gall stones, diabetes, and bladder infections, to name a few.
