the surgeon insert[ing] a small, rigid tube with a camera at the end (a cystoscope) into your urethra and up into your bladder. The camera is used to help locate the bladder stones. A crushing device, lasers or ultrasound waves transmitted from the cystoscope can be used to break up the stones into smaller fragments, which can be washed out of your bladder with fluids.The procedure is usually done under local anesthetic and is not painful at the time, but patients can experience discomfort afterwards, and there is also a small risk of infection or injury to the bladder.[source]
Needless to say M. was not keen on having this done. Aside from the issues of physical risk and discomfort, there was also a substantial cost involved. So he scoured the internet for natural solutions, and found a compound called potassium citrate which can help prevent and over time dissolve bladder stones. His doctor advised him, however, that for a stone as large as his, it would take a long time to work, if it worked at all.
M. decided to try the potassium citrate along with energy healing. We did 12 bioenergy sessions in two blocks of six with a break of 10 days in between. Right after the first session he reported easier urination and increased flow, which made him feel a lot better. This continued right up until the ninth session, when he once again began to experience difficulty and complained of frequent, painful urination which produced small amounts of sand residue. After the 12th session he returned to the urologist and asked for an ultrasound.
I will quote the urologist's comment on the ultrasound verbatim. This is what the urologist said:
I am sorry to tell you that there is no bladder stone.M. was quite pleased and astonished by this, as was I. He has experienced no pain or difficulty urinating since. He is now trying to address the possible underlying causes of his bladder stone through lifestyle changes, so it does not return.
