Barley water is a healthy drink that can help with many ailments, including naturally dissolving kidney stones. It’s made by brewing barley, which contains minerals like calcium and magnesium. These minerals will pass into your urine and help dissolve any stone material that may be clogging your system.

Barley water tastes delicious, too! The only downside is that you have to drink it for at least a week after each episode for it to work correctly. But don’t worry—it tastes so good that you’ll be glad you did!

About Barley

Barley is a grain that is used to make beer and whiskey. It is also used to make flour, which is used in bread and other baked goods. Barley is also used as animal feed.

Barley is an ancient grain that has been cultivated for thousands of years. It is one of the first crops to be domesticated in early civilizations like Egypt, Mesopotamia, and China. The earliest known barley bread recipe dates back to around 3000 BC in ancient Sumer (modern-day Iraq).

It is rich in many nutrients that help remove all toxins from your body by improving body metabolism. 

How to make barley water

How to make it:

  • Add 1 cup of barley to 2 quarts of water.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes, then strain the liquid into a bowl using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
  • Drink this throughout the day while you are urinating frequently and consistently when trying to flush your kidneys out with urine that is not concentrated with calcium oxalate crystals or uric acid crystals (the two main constituents of kidney stones).

5 Health Benefits of barley water

  • Barley water helps in weight loss and digestion.
  • Barley water helps in constipation.
  • Barley water heals urinary tract infections.
  • Barley water boosts your skin.
  • Aids in the detoxification of kidney stones naturally.

It is a natural diuretic that can help flush out excess fluid, making it the perfect drink if you want to lose weight. It also contains high amounts of vitamins B1 and B6, which are essential for our nervous system.

Side effects

While barley water is generally considered safe for most people, it’s important to be aware of any possible side effects.

Some people may experience mild stomach aches or diarrhea when they first start drinking it. If you experience any discomfort after drinking the water, stop and consult your doctor before continuing.

Also, be careful with recipes that contain too much sugar or artificial sweeteners! You want to keep your body at a healthy weight while also supporting good kidney health—don’t sabotage yourself by overdoing it on sugary drinks!


While barley water is a good way to manage kidney stones, it’s important to remember that it should only be used as part of a larger treatment plan.

Drinking barley water alone will not eliminate all your kidney stones, but if combined with other treatments and lifestyle changes, it can help them pass more easily and quickly.
