Lemon juice is working for me. Kidney stone free for 2 1/2 years after 2 straight years with a stone. Drank cranberry juice and took cranberry pills for 5 years before and feel
that at least was a contributor to getting them in the first place.

Symptoms of gout have been almost non-existent as well which is why I was drinking the cranberry juice to start with. I mix about 1 to 1 1/2 oz juice in with tang in the AM and water at supper.

I like the body PH lowering effects in concept as well.

So where does the taking of calcium citrate fit into this picture?

As kidney stones are partially composed of calcium, calcium supplements are generally not recommended. You should, however, try to get adequate calcium from your diet, as this helps reduce oxalate in urine, and oxalate is a component of kidney stones.
