    Sir, I have been diagnosed with gallstones(multiple calculi, the largest one measuring 9 mm) when I went for some other treatment for prostate problems. I have no symptoms of gallstones, no pain anywhere. But I want to get the gallstones dissolved by natural medicines. As suggested above how long will it take for the gallstones to dissolve if I continuously take the natural medicine. Also for how long should I take this medicine for the gallstones to dissolve completely. Please help me. Thanks and Regards R. Ganesan
