I doubt it: Having kidney stones is bad enough without having to deal with this stuff afterwards. I found two publications from obscure institutions, never replicated, making claims that seem too good to be true. Just for this, the stuff is hyped as "miracle plant / stone crusher". Follow the scientific advice about hydration and perhaps diet to manage your health. Don't put your hopes solely on this herbal.
