Effectiveness of homeopathy in cases of gallstones

Posted by: Mima

Dear Dr. B,

I would like to know how effectives is homeopathy for gallstones & the chances of its reoccurence. As I’ve been diagnosed for it & already taking the medications (Homeopathic)for it,I’m curios to know about the extent & speed of recovery.The stones sizes are about 5-3mm & are about 4-5 in numbers.

Thanking you in advance.

Dear Mima,

Gall-stones do not come out very easily with medicines because the gravity is usually against them. It means, for the gall stones to come out, first them will have to move up a bit and then they will be able to traverse down. Having said that, I must add that inspite of the gravity working against the cure, homeopathic medicines are known to cure gall stones. But the success rate is very less compared to renal-stones.

Gall-stones, if silent, may not need any treatment. It is not necessary to remove the gall-bladder. For occasional flare-ups (colic), homeopathic medicines provide quick and lasting relief. If the gall-bladder is contracted or has numerous small stones (with potential of getting stuck in common bile duct), surgery may be advisable. If there is only sludge, homeopathic medicines should be able to take care of it.

Best wishes,

Dr. B

  • Hi Doctor,

    I have multiple calculi in my gall bladder measuring 4-6 mm diagnosed 2 years back. The size has not increased in the last 2 years at all.
    There are no symptoms except very slight pain in upper abdomen, that too very rarely.
    I wished to inquire whether the same can be dissolved via homeopathy or surgery is the only option.
