Kidney stones can be really painful but there are ways to treat kidney stones naturally without resorting to heavy pain medications and other pharmaceuticals. The kidneys are one of the most important organs in the human body. The kidneys help to detox and filter impurities from the blood, as well as waste products in our urine.
