What does it do?

Helps clear the urinary tract

You want to get a restful, peaceful night sleep but you have to wake up in the middle of the night a few times to urinate. It would be one thing if you could quickly do your business and go right back to sleep. But compounding the problem is having a urination that stops and starts in fits because of a very potentially painful problem….

And that problem is kidney deposits.

Ask anybody who has had a kidney deposit and they'll tell you that passing one is one of the most, if not the most, painful experience of their life.

The fear of going to the bathroom is an awful thing to have to go through.

Calcified deposits in the kidney, bladder, or urethra are one of the major sources of morbidity around the world.

But the good news is there's a safe, gentle, all-natural herbal remedy for helping you urinate more smoothly.

Stonepass™ is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that may help you effortlessly pass these deposits and clear the urinary tract. This herbal formula is specifically for stones less than 8 mm in size. In addition, it may be used as a preventative formula if you have had kidney stones in the past.

Signature formula helps pass small stones

Both western medicine and TCM recognize a symptom known as "strangury," which is characterized by painful and frequent urination in small volumes. You know if you have strangury when you have to strain forcefully to expel only a tiny amount of urine, despite the fact that it feels like you have to eliminate a gallon of fluid.

The all-natural herbal ingredients in Stonepass promotes urination. These herbs, which have been used for several centuries in TCM application, may help pass and shrink calcified deposits.

This TCM approach to treating strangury urination is different from western medicine, which includes ultrasound. Ultrasound therapy breaks up the stones into much smaller pieces.

By comparison, TCM addresses the problems of strangury by resolving two underlying conditions. They are damp-heat and long-term deficiency of kidney yin.

If you have a family history of stones, you may have a constitutional predisposition to developing stones. And if you've never experienced the painful dread of passing a stone, but stones runs in your family, taking Stonepass from time to time (for a week or so every month) may help prevent deposits from forming again.

How does Stonepass work?

The herbs in Stonepass clear damp heat; promote urination; unblock painful urinary dribbling and push out stones.

Jin Qian Cao (Gold Coin Grass, aka Asian Moneywort), the chief herb in Stonepass, is perhaps the most well known Chinese herb for promoting urination and expelling stones. It promotes urine acidification and reduces swelling.

Ren Dong Teng (Honeysuckle) clears heat and toxins, while San Ye Mu Tong (Akebia), clears heat and promotes urination.

Shi Wei (Pyrrosia Leaf) unblocks the urinary tract. Qu Mai (Dianthus) drains damp and heat from the Bladder, as does Hua Shi (talcum), another natural diuretic in the formula.

Xu Chang Qing (Paniculate Swallow-Wort) dispels Wind-Dampness.

Dong Kui Zi (Musk Mallow Seeds) also promotes urination, as does Che Qian Zi (Asian Plantain Seeds). And finally, the last herb in the formula, Gan Cao (Licorice Root), harmonizes the action of other herbs.

Research supporting the use of Stonepass

The chief herb in the formula, Jin Qian Cao, has demonstrated the ability to inhibit crystal growth and aggregation. In animal models, experimental groups demonstrated significantly lower calcium, creatinine and phosphorus levels compared to the control group. Researchers concluded this herb reduces stone formation of pure calcium oxalate crystals.1
