I am no doctor or expert in anyway, but what I sure am, is a kidney stone sufferer.
I recall the first stone I got, a long time ago, back in my twenties.
A sudden and excruciating pain striking around the kidney area, making me roll onto the floor not knowing which position to take in order to alleviate the pain.
I was rushed to the hospital where I was kept under observation for three to four days. I was given heavy doses of a painkilling injection, as there was no other remedy available.
Eventually, the tiny stone traveled through the urinary tract and was finally ejected. What a relief!
On leaving the hospital, the doctor warned me that this is, most of the time, a recurring condition.
Knowing that this could happen again, I was determined to investigate further into the matter.
A friend of mine from Egypt told me that this ailment is prevalent there as well as in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea and it could be cured with local herbal medicine.
