Brief Answer:
Need more Information

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health query and before opting for treatment options, do let me know about following points:

1. Gall stones due to under active thyroid [hypothyroidism] has shown to improve with Conservative line of treatment, but if due to other causes, medicines are not effective to that much extent.
2. any associated high cholesterol, or low thyroid profile or blood sugar.??
3. Age & weight of the patient??
4. any history of recurrent pain-jaundice-fever.?
5. any information by the doctor [whether cholesterol or pigment stones]?
6. women are probably at increased risk because estrogen stimulates the liver to remove more cholesterol from blood and divert it into the bile.[so age is requested]
7. any intolerance to FAT [nausea,vomiting]?

. if we look into the Anatomy of Gall bladder, one will come to know, why it is difficult to remove them with Medicines, and Surgery is the best Available Treatment, if still you and family member wants to try Conservative treatment, I can furnish dietary regime and lifestyle modifications.

Brief Answer:
Diet and lifestyle management

Detailed Answer:

. Cucumbers, Green beans, Sweet potatoes, Avocados, Vinegars [all types], Garlic, ripe tomatoes,
lemon juice in the morning with hot water, apples, berries, papaya, pear.
. Vegetable juices - Beet and cucumber are especially helpful to gallbladder, avoid cabbage.
. Avoid all fruit juices except organic grape juice and organic apple: fresh, self-juiced is best [ dilute with water before drinking]
. High fibre [fresh fruits and vegetables] and low fat diet [skimmed milk], hing, old brown rice, barley, horse gram, moong dal, ginger, green leafy vegetables, oil massage, boiled water,

. Eggs, Onions, Beans and legumes,Coffee,Oranges, grapefruit,nuts,fried Foods, Spicy foods,Chocolate,Ice cream,Carbonated water,Tap water,artificial sweeteners, sugar, preservatives, refined and bleached foods .
. Fried foods, urad dal, tomato, turnip, milk and milk products, constipating/heavy food, soda, alcohol, tea, potato, beet root, dry raisins, sour food, cashew nuts.
. Take 3 gm ajwain [carom] seeds and eat, thereafter drink warm water.
. Chew sugarcane pieces and keep swallowing the juice.
. Drink 1 cup spinach leaf juice daily for 1 month.
. Drink 1 cup of radish leaves for 14 days.
. Take 3-4 spoons of olive oil in evening with warm water or milk.
. Grind onion and extract 20 gm juice and to it add 50 gm sugar candy powder [mishri] and drink.
. Since size of stone is less, thus you can get this prescription medicine ‘tilnala kshara’ to be taken orally in dose of 1 gm, thrice daily with honey and milk for 4 month.

. Since she is asymptomatic, which means stone is in gall bladder, but problem will start once it gets into common bile duct resulting in attacks of severe pain: biliary colic so do follow your Surgeon Advice.
. Take vitamin-C-rich foods in your daily diet: like amla, orange, grapefruit, kiwi, cantaloupe, mango, strawberries, broccoli, red pepper, or tomato juice. [Since vitamin C is needed to properly synthesize bile; and deficient intake causes bile to become cholesterol-rich and increasing the likelihood of stone formation].
. do check with baseline Investigations.
