Detected with 3.7 mm stone in gallbladder , will it get dissolved automatically or any treatment or medicine required ?

Detected with 3.7 mm stone in gallbladder , will it get dissolved automatically or any treatment or medicine required ?
You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done.

Try to lose your weight. And avoid oily and junk food and dahi and sour products e. G. Pickles etc. No rich proteins and non veg. Try to use light diets and soups of carrots and beetroot with ginger, black pepper and salts. Use khichari and dariya with green vegetables and moong daal. Follow regular daily routine getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours. Hingwastak curna or shivakshar pachan churn - one tea spoon with warm water after meals twice daily. If you feel better result then continue it for one month. Otherwise revert for further guidline.

Hello lybrate user take light & easily digestable foods. Instead of taking 2 large meals devide into 3-4 small meals. Drinking warm water will facilitate digestion. Avoid excess workouts and latenight sleep. Take soups or gruels including ginger and pepper. - take hingvastak choorna 1-1-1tsp b/m with warm water. -jeerakaristam 10 ml two times after meals for 4-6 wks.
