I have gallbladder stone how do i cure any side effect also patharchatta whats name of in english or any side effect please help me and send me my email or send me text massage please

and this leave where can I find
28 Jul 2016
Dear Chaitali
I recommend you to please consult a doctor and go for a planned surgery. Because if the stones are bis in size and you try to flush them out, there might be chances of emergency. The stone may get stuck in the neck of the Gallbladder, which may cause fatal results.
And for the English name of Patharchatta, you may scroll up and can find the name there.

My wife hv stone in both kidneys sizes 16.5 & 5.3 mm, plz suggest what to fo, either go for surgery or someone suggested for patthar chatta use daily for 15 days.
11 Nov 2016
Yes, patthar chatta is a great herb to remove kidney stone. Gokharu and Varun are another very very effective herb for curing Kidney Stones. Take Varuna capsule, one everyday for a month. Stone breaker is another very good herb for our wife.
i would suggest that she should take Drumstick soup everyday for a month.
Gokharu capsules, everyday , once a day for 20 days. Punarnava extract , 10 drops of this water extract form.

I have a 20 mm stone in gall bladder n 3 to 4 stones in both d kidneys. I'm consuming patharchatta since a week..will it help?
Got my right kidney operated in June 2016 only . Also I'm diabetic n hv thyroid
17 Mar 2017
It is very rare that the stones in the gall bladder are removed.
You may Berberis Vulgaris tincture for that. In case the size of the stones increase, there might be a problem, as the stones might get stuck in the neck of the bladder. The best thing to do is to get it removed by planned surgery. For stones in Kidney, take Varuna capsules. One every day for a month. This will dissolve the stones present in the Kidney. Take Land Caltrops capsules, on daily for a month .Do not take Patharchatta

Harjot. Kalanchoe Pinnata is a herb used to cure stones. Since you are breastfeeding, I think you must not take it. You should always talk to your healthcare provider before you try any medication when you are nursing.

See, the stone can be dissolved with herb Varuna, one capsule every day for a month. Horse gram soup, one bowl every day for a month and Apple Cider Vinegar. But, since you are breastfeeding your baby, it might not be safe to take these. Only take these herbs once you are done with breastfeeding your baby. you may breastfeed your baby for 6 more months. Horsegram soup can be taken though.

11 Jan 2018
Do you suffer from High Bp or Low Bp. For Stone, take Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 teas[poon, twice in a day for a month. Also take Varuna capsules, one every day for a month. This will dissolve the stones and flush the gravel out of the Kidneys.
