Kidney Pain

Kidney pain is generally felt in the flank area of our bodies.

This area is just below the ribs on either side of the spine.

The pain caused by kidneys is generally acute and at times has been compared with the pain that is brought on by colic.

A person suffering from colic is greatly distressed and can hardly sit still but is constantly writhing and twisting in agony.

There are two main causes for pain in kidney; a kidney infection and more commonly, a kidney stone.

When they are small, kidney stones can remain undetected but once they grow big enough they can block the urethra thereby making all urine flow back into the kidneys. This can cause immense pain.

Kidney infections cause inflammation in the inner kidney tissues which can again cause acute distress and pain.

Dull and aching pain is generally not caused by kidneys.

Natural Cures for Kidney Pain:


This is a wonder remedy for all kidney related disorders.

Taking in at least 10 glasses of water in a day can flush out any kidney stones or any bacteria or germs which might be the cause of a kidney infection.

This is a great way of getting rid of kidney pain.

Lemon Juice:

Water is a great help if the kidney stone is not large enough to block the urethra, as it can be flushed out with water.

However, in case one has severe pain in the kidneys due to a blocked urethra then just plain water might not be that much of a help.

Drink a minimum of two ounces of lemon juice and the pain will be gone in around 20 minutes, while the stone should dissolve in around 15 hours. Wonder remedy indeed!

Virgin Olive Oil:

If the lemon juice doesn’t do the trick for you, then this rather severe method is required.

Add 2 ounces if virgin olive oil to 2 ounces of lemon juice and drink it all up.

It is going to taste ghastly but in the end the result would be well worth the effort.

Lady Fingers:

Take 3 thick and slightly raw lady fingers, cut them into slices and steep them in around 2 liters of water overnight.

In the morning remove the ladyfinger and squeeze its juice into the same water in which it had been soaked.

Drink the full amount of water over a period of 1 to 2 hours.

This is a wonder medicine for getting rid of kidney problems.
