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 protein may also help. For acute stone attacks, you should seek medical attention and possible evaluation by a urologist.
