Stones forming in the gall bladder are usually of 3 types, either cholesterol stones or stones made of some pigments found in the liver or mixed stones.
The exact cause of gallstones is not known but it is more common in females especially above the age of fifty, in those who are obese with a high level of blood cholesterol. Many a times these stones cause no problems & are detected accidentally on an abdominal Ultra-sonography.
However symptoms when present can be of many types. It could be just recurrent episodes of indigestion & flatulence with slight abdominal pain or frequent back pains on the right side or at times acute attacks of severe abdominal pain which makes the patient very restless. This usually occurs when the stone moves from the gall bladder to the bile duct & causes obstruction.
Gallstones can cause complications in the form of obstruction of the bile duct leading to severe pain & jaundice or recurrent attacks of acute inflammation of the gall bladder itself or a thickened, shrunken & malfunctioning gall bladder. Usually surgery is advised & the gallbladder is removed in case of complication.
Surgery becomes absolutely necessary in cases of obstruction or acute cases but if homeopathic treatment is started early enough in the course of the disease, complications & surgery can be avoided.
When the stones are of a smaller size, homeopathic medicines will help in possibly dissolving the stones. Homeopathy medicines are effective in alleviating pain as well as chronic inflammation of gallbladder. Homeopathy also helps to control further stone production activity.
PLUS you get to keep your gall bladder, which is essential to keep your body at peak health!
