In brief: Hydration

The best "home" remedy for kidney stone prevention is increasing fluid (primarily water) intake.
Lemonade is also good for most people with stone disease. Restricting salt and red meat protein may also help. For acute stone attacks, you should seek medical attention and possible evaluation by a urologist.

In brief: Stones.

Depends on the kind of stone.
If its the most common, ca oxalate. And you have hyperoxaluria -high content of oxalate in urine, the natural methods involve eliminating certain foods rich in oxalates: spinach, kale , rhubarb, nuts, beans, coffee, chocolate, list goes on. If its uric acid, another list . Some suggest lemonade every day, and no salt in diet. Consult a urologist for specifics.
