        It is recommended you consult a homeopath in person to find which remedy suits best to you. Small stoes (less than 6mm) usually get resolved with hic treatment.

    Hello Dr,

    I am a male aged 35yrs. I have recently been detected with kidney stones. It started with a severe pain in left abdomen & pain going to the groin area. The pain remained for 36hrs intermittently to the extent even pain killing injections didnt help. After the detailed examination, Ultrasound & NCCT, KUB, two stones detected in both kidneys, 7mm in left one & 9mm in right one. The left kidney stone had moved down to the urinary tract & was causing the pain. I have been advised by the doctor to undergo a surgery as this big size stone will not be able to flush out on its own. So far i have been on medication & taking Tamsolin. Also I have started taking Homeopathy medicines (after consulting a Homeopathy doctor) Berberis Vulgaris, Cantharis & Lycopodium. So in effect i have been taking both Allopathy & Homeopathy since last 10 days & in these 10 days there have been pain once only. Also I have been taking lots of fluids. So I would to ask following questions as mentioned below:-

    (a) Is it fine to continue both the medicines like Allopathy & Homeopathy?

    (b) As there has been no pain, Does that mean the stone has flushed out through urine?

    (c) The Homeopathy medicines which I am taking are correct?

    (d) Is there any Homeopathy medicine which can instantly provide relief from the pain?

    Berberies Bulgeris Q 15-20 drops good for removing kidney stones. For pain one can take Belladona 200CH for times in a day.
    Later Canthris Q also be mixed with Berb Vul.
