uses an all natural herbal formula. The primary ingredient in StoneCLR
is Phyllanthus Nirui.
Phyllanthus Nirui is a plant that grows in the Amazon Rainforest
and other tropical areas of the world. Also known as quebra pedra,
the name translates to “stone breaker” or “shatter
stone,” which comes from its ability to eliminate gallstones
from the body. The plant contains stone-like berries underneath
its leaves. This makes it a good example of morphism, where a plant’s
shape signals its effective bodily use.
inhabitants of the Amazon have been using Phyllanthus Nirui for
generations to eliminate gallstones and kidneystones, scientific
researchers have been validating the herb’s effectiveness
since the 1980’s.
Nicole Maxwell, the author of the groundbreaking Witch Doctor's Apprentice , first published in 1961, and based on research done in the 1950's in the Peruvian rainforest, considers chanca piedra one of the most important healing herbs, which she encountered in the rainforest through her interactions with shamans and Amazonian Indians. She later met a German doctor who had been using chanca piedra in his medical practice in Germany who told her that 94% of all the cases he encountered among his patients of gallstones and kidney stones were "completely eliminated." Another physician whom Maxwell interviewed about his use of chanca piedra for his patients said that the plant worked 100% of the time and without any side effects.
The conventional approach to removal of gallstones usually involves
shattering the stone using ESWL (Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy)
but this often leaves residual fragments which often require the treatment
to be repeated, not to mention the high costs involved. The
new research, published in the medical journal 'European Urology Supplements'
earlier this year, assessed the benefit of taking an extract of Phyllanthus
ESWL treatment. After six months the stone free rate in those treated
with just ESWL was 80% - but for the patients taking Quebra Pedra
during their recovery, the stone free rate was 97%. Concerning lower
caliceal stones the stone free rate of those using the herb was 94.1%
versus 64.28% among those who just had ESWL.
traditional uses for gallstones
and kidneystones have been validated by clinical research. In a
1999 clinical study (Campos, A.H., et. al.) a Phyllanthus
extract exhibited a potent and effective non-concentration-dependent
inhibitory effect on the calcium oxalate crystal formation (the
building blocks of most kidney stones). This response was present
even at very high (pathologic) concentrations. This may explain
why it has long been used in traditional medicine as a preventative
to kidneystone and gallstone formation. The antispasmodic activity
of alkaloids in Phyllanthus
documented by Brazilian researchers in the mid 1980's which explained
the popular use of the plant for existing kidney and bladder stones.
The alkaloid extract demonstrated smooth muscle relaxation specific
to the urinary and Biliary tract, which the researchers surmised,
facilitates the expulsion of kidney or bladder calculi. Dr. Wolfram
Wiemann of Nuremburg, Germany review over 100 case studies and found
be 94% successful in eliminating stones. (Maxwell, N. 1990)
