1. Parsley Water

The simplest way to use parsley as a natural remedy for kidney stones is to prepare its infusion in hot water and consume it multiple times a day.

  • Take a handful of fresh parsley leaves in a saucepan.
  • Add enough water to cover the leaves.
  • Boil for 3-4 minutes and remove from the flame.
  • Allow the liquid to cool.
  • Strain and drink 3 – 4 times a day.

Note: For added benefits and taste, add some lemon juice into the parsley water. Lemon juice is a rich source of potassium along with vitamins B and C, which have a cleansing effect on the blood vessels of the kidneys and helps keep blood pressure in check. You can also substitute lemon juice with ¼ teaspoon salt or olive oil.

2. Parsley Tea

Parsley tea works as a natural cleanser and helps to prevent salt from being reabsorbed into the body tissues, reducing the chances of stone formation in kidneys.

  • Boil 1 cup of water in a kettle or a saucepan.
  • Rinse ¼ cup of fresh parsley leaves under running water.
  • Roughly chop the parsley leaves to release some of its natural oils.
  • In a cup, place the chopped leaves at the bottom.
  • Pour the hot water over the leaves to fill the cup.
  • Allow it to stand for 5-10 minutes.
  • Strain the leaves through a sieve and collect the liquid tea in a cup.
  • Drink 1-2 cups daily for best results.

Note: Do not allow the parsley leaves to stand in hot water for very long; otherwise the tea will become bitter in taste. You can also add some honey or sugar to the tea if the taste seems unpleasant while drinking.
