Gallstones

Respected Sir, I have been suffering from gallstones problem for the past one year, I have been taking homoeopathy treatment for the past 9 months but I found no improvement, when I got tested for the first time the stone size was 6.5 mm (multiple stones, big stone size was 6.5) but after 3 months it reduced to 6 mm, after 4 months now it is 1 cm (3 stones are 1 cm and 1 stone is 6.5 mm). I recently watched your interview on ABN news channel. Please suggest me, if is it curable with homeopathy treatment, I came to know that there is no treatment for gallstones problem in allopathy, the only solution is removing gallbladder but I am not interested to go for a surgery (laparoscopy surgery). Waiting for your kind reply.

I do not find any reason to avoid gall bladder removed if it is required as when the gallbladder is inflammed.....reducing size of stones is not the cure whereas it has more chances of slipping into the ducts and causing obstructive jaundice

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
No homeopathy doctor will answer this question.
First of all, going for a homeopathy treatment was a mistake.
Homeopathy never works. They just say you have to take medicines for so and so long and slowly your problem will go away without any side effects.
But even if you take the treatment for however long, the problem will still be there.
There is not even one single evidence that homeopathy works. No studies nothing.
Instead of going for a treatment that works, you just go ahead with homeopathy and delay proper treatment which just makes your condition worse over a period of time and you wont even know.
Consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards

Dear sir, if gallstones are not causing any problems to you like stomach pain after eating food, there is no need to treat them. If they cause pain once or twice, then we try to treat supportively with pain relievers. If the pain keeps coming recurrently, surgery is the only treatment. Apart from that, there is no cure for it in allopathy or any other pathy. Only FDA approved medicine is T. Udiliv 300mg to reduce formation of new stones, but it won't have any effect on already formed stones.

Also, monitoring sizes of stones through USG is not logical as reported sizes vary a lot depending on radiologist who does the scan.

Take plenty of fluids and T. Udiliv 300mg daily, eat food with less cholesterol and fat content.

Next Steps
Take plenty of fluids and T. Udiliv 300mg daily, eat food with less cholesterol and fat content.
