Kidney-Gall Bladder Stones (Vrukka Ashmari in Sanskrit) could be a single large stone or many tiny stones. These are Small Stones/Gravel which are not able to come out from Urinary Bladder or Urethra. The small gravels eventually become stone – and excess pain is experienced while urinating.

On may go ahead and get the stone/s (Kidney/Gall Bladder) removed by laser or other forms of surgery, but one has to think that does this external/surgical treatment targets the root cause in any/which way. And if it does not, then we must make the required lifestyle/eating habits changes and eliminate the stones from the body by proper diet/herbs, and remember “Food is The Best Medicine”.
