Hi Dr. Nicole, my CT scan shows that I have kidney stones yet they aren’t active or moving so I started taking Chanca Piedra Veggie Caps to maybe help break those up and stop forming them altogether, but I’d like to get more of your tinctures to address this. Which one(s) would help with this?
Thank you in advance for all of your help!

Hi and thank you for your question. I’m so sorry to hear you’re dealing with kidney stones – that’s no fun!
My Pipsissewa Tincture has been very successful for helping dissolve kidney stones as well as bladder stones, and many have also reported that it was effective in treating urinary disorders as well. Pipsissewa has been used by Native American tribes for these very issues because it’s known to stimulate the flow of urine. “Pipsissewa” is actually a Cree Indian word meaning “It-breaks-into-small-pieces”. Common usage is one dropper full each day unless your kidney stones are or become active, then increase to one dropper full three times a day.
I hope you feel better soon!
