Last Thursday I woke up in a FABULOUS mood, I had my shower, put on my slap and was just getting the kids ready for school when I dropped my cup of tea as I was suddenly doubled up in agony.
You can read about that day Here but the long and the short of it is I have kidney stones.
I have spent the weekend in pain, in bed, tweeting on my ipad and watching iplayer whilst HAW has taken over (and although the house is so, so messy, he did an awesome job).
I had an appointment today with the Dr to discuss the next move. I was still in pain and they hadn't passed.
HAW did the school run and was taking to one of the other dads who told him about a natural remedy to cure the stones. If anyone else had told me this I would have poo-pooed it but this dad knows kidneys as had gone through a lot. (not my story to tell).
Here is his remedy (you can also google this, pages and pages of people agree!)
6 cans of full fat coke
packet of asparagus
You basically drink 1 can of coke every 20 mins and then after the last can, you eat the asparagus in a soup form.
The science behind this was that the acid in the coke would break down the stones and the asparagus would act as a diuretic.
The pain was so intense I thought I would give it a go. Drinking that much coke was hard. I was belching like a Brit in benidorm and was so bloated. It was difficult I have to admit. When it was time for the asparagus, I was ready for some goodness:
I downed that followed by some water and waited. Within 20 minutes I could feel something happening, I went to the loo and nothing. I carried on drinking water and during the next 5 hours, peed out tiny granules.
Unbelievably, I am now pain free!!!
I still cannot believe that this worked but if anyone is suffering from the same agonising ailment, please, please give this a go. I couldn't believe the almost immediate relief!
Peace and Love
