    10 years ago I had a kidney stone measured 0.4cm and I didn’t want to go to any kind of procedure to remove it. I tried lots of different medicine to dissolve it but nothing worked until one day I was watching tv and they had a commercial on tv about the Sambong Forte .so I went to a Pharmacy and bought it right away because I was so desperate to find a medicine to remove my Kidney stone. I’m glad that I did because it really works. After taking 10 tablets for 5 days, my kidney stone came out. It was painful but it was worth it. I no longer had any uncomfortable feeling. I didn’t have to go through any surgery and pay a lot of money to get it removed. Sambong was proven by me .I have used it when I had a UTI and for my blood pressure too. I’m glad I found this herbal because it really works! I continue to use it rather than other antibiotics because I know it is better. I also love that it has no side effects.
