(first check the type of your kidney stones then apply. As there are uric acid, cysteine, and struvite stones also. Better to know the type.)

1) Take more magnesium. According to Harvard research, Magnesium 180mg along side Vitamin B6 of 10mg reduces kidney stones ocurrence to upto 92.3% per year. (Wow! that’s a whopping percentage)
