    Very good information. In india I have treated few patients by ancient systems, who did not prefer treatment by operation of gall bladder. I prescribed few yoga asans, pranayaams and advised use of a particular grain, called KULTHI. It is always good to take care of ailments thro. diet and alternative medicines first. Because if tendency of forming stone remains the problem may recurr again. But, with the ancient methods the root cause is removed. When we do Yoga, pranayaams( Breathing properly providing more oxygen to each organ cell, it works allround, increases immunity and take care of all other present and future ailments of body.Dr. S.C.
