Hey Steve, thank you for your email. And thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I had always heard vitamin C products and juices were good for cystine stones, even so, just for health benefits. But you're right, they are high in acidic properties, and my doctor told me just recently that cranberry juice is overrated for urinary health. Thank you for bringing this contradiction to my attention, i may have to do a little revamping on my site. My best advice to you right now would not to lay too heavy on acidic juices. Thanx again for the help and take care,

I read your article and wanted to question your advocacy of vit C and orange juice etc.
You stated that alkaline is best, yet these are acidic and you called them alkaline.
Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance,
