Are you experiencing terrible pain and tenderness in the upper right area of your abdomen? Is it that the pain doesn’t seem to go either you sit, stand or lie down? If yes, visit a doctor who can inform you that you have Cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder) and that the only cure is to go through the gallbladder surgery process.

Yes, you heard it right! The standard conventional treatment of gallbladder stone is the removal of the gall bladder.

Conventional treatment for gallbladder stone

Gallstones are generally dissolved using drugs such as ursodeoxycholic acid and methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE). These drugs are only effective on smaller stones and may cause a variety of unpleasant side-effects including diarrhea, nausea, pain or fever. They also have a failure rate as high as 50%, and even if they dissolve, the recurrence rate can be as high as 50%.

There is also a gallstones treatment called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL), in which you sit in a bath of water and high-energy ultrasound shock waves are directed through the abdominal wall toward the stones. This procedure is suitable for solitary stones of less than 2 cm, but less than 15% of patients are suitable for this treatment. Complications of this gallstones treatment include pain in the gallbladder area, pancreatitis, and not all of the fragments may clear the bile duct, which then provide a home for bacteria. There is also a risk of increased blood pressure and permanent damage to the kidneys if the stones are close to or in the kidneys.

In cases where gallstones occur frequently, your doctor may recommend gallbladder surgery. Once your gallbladder is removed, the bile flows directly into your small intestine, thereby increasing your chances of getting diarrhea and bowel cancer. It may also cause higher blood cholesterol levels.

Not all gallstone patients require surgery. If homeopathy is considered as a treatment option in the early stages of the disease, it can help dissolve the stones naturally.

After homeopathic treatment, no stones were detected in the gallbladder.

Case Study


Nikita came to us with chronic pain in the abdomen, which had bothered her for over five years. The pain was in the umbilical region and would radiate to the back. She would experience the pain more while eating fried food, which she relished. Looking at her tendency to put on weight, her craving for fatty food and her age group, we suspected gallstones. This was confirmed by an X-ray, which showed multiple gallstones and a thickened gall bladder. Our doctors prescribed her an appropriate homeopathic remedy to dissolve the gallstones. After three months, a repeat X-ray showed the stones had dissolved, much to Nikita’s relief and also happiness.

This case shows how a case that perhaps required surgery can be tackled with homeopathy. When the gallstones are small, homeopathic medicines often help in dissolving the stones. Homeopathy also helps to control the tendency for gallstones. If the stones are big and impacted, they may need surgical intervention.

Self Help Tips
