Gall bladder stone needs operation. Once stone is formed inside gall bladder, that gall bladder is non functional and will keep on forming stone which in turn can lead to various health issues in future. There is no medicine for stone dissolution.

She was having stones in gallbladder around 6 mm size, today she was getting pain and urination infection also.

She was having stones in gallbladder around 6 mm size, today she was getting pain and urination infection also.
Don't worry both things are not that much related to each other. She will be cured with medicines only what i will suggest is that she needs 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 gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones. the urination infection medicines will also be provided to her along with this treatment.

I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3. You should have about 30 g of fibre a day. You can increase your fibre intake by eating more: I am giving you list of some fibre containing food fruit vegetables wholegrain rice whole wheat pasta wholemeal bread seeds oats 4. Toilet habits never ignore the urge to go to the toilet consult physician.
