Abstract

Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of Nigella sativa (NS) with honey on treatment of kidney stone. Methods A clinical trial was conducted on 42 patients who were referred to the urology clinic of Ganjavian Hospital, Dezful, Iran and were identified by a sonographist that they had kidney stones smaller than 6 mm, they were without hydronephrosis, and did not require medication. They were randomly assigned to control (n = 20) and treatment (n = 22) groups. About 8 g of NS and honey combination with one glass of warm water were given daily to the treatment group for 1 month. The control group did not receive medication. Both groups drank 6-8 glasses of water daily. Results The rate of stone expulsion in the treatment group was significantly higher than the control group (P = 0.0001). Conclusion According to our results, it seems that NS with honey may have some beneficial effects in the treatment of kidney stone.
