Successfully Treated Gall Bladder Stone Cases (Random Selection)
The treatment strategy is aimed to achieve the following:
Immediate Pain Relief: Provide fast and immediate pain relief. If at all the pain/colic occurs to the patient, we are able to do this with our pain killer which is specific for this disease itself. Patients have reported pain relief usually within 5 to 20 minutes of taking the medicine in almost all cases. More importantly, the relief that ensues from this medication is a complete one and the patient feels normal without any remaining soreness. Most importantly this medicine does not have any side-effects unlike any other painkiller in conventional medicine. The role of this medicine is not only to provide immediate relief to the pain but also to reduce the chances of recurrence of colic.
Prevent Incidents of Colics: Provide medication and management to prevent the occurrence of pain due to gall stones or gall colic. Almost all patients have never had colic once they started our treatment and followed our extremely simple management advice.
- Dissolve the Stones: Provide medication that gradually dissolves the stone. This is achieved by using our medication continuously over a period of time. The length of this treatment depends on the size and chemical composition of the stone and varies from case to case. However, during this period of prolonged treatment, the patient remains free from any symptoms related to this disease and is able to carry on his/her normal life.
Gall bladder stones is a commonly occurring phenomenon. It is estimated that about 20% of women and 8% of men have Gall bladder stones. However, the important point to observe is that most of them are 'silent' stones and do not exhibit any symptoms or complications. Most of them are detected through routine diagnosis like Ultrasonography (USG) or X-Ray or CT Scans. It is a well documented fact that if a stone remains silent for 15 years it virtually has no chance of exhibiting any symptoms or complications. Hence, we must take the view that removing the stone through surgery or lithotripsy is completely unnecessary.
Generally the main symptom that are associated with the Gall Stones is Gall Colic or Biliary Colic or severe steady pain. This if experienced by a patient carrying the stones can last anywhere between 30 minutes to 5 hours on each occasion. Even after the colic subsides there is a soreness that remains in the upper abdomen or epigastrium (Right Upper Quadrant) for upto 24 hours or more.
Besides this acute phase of the disease which causes intolerable pain/colic occasionally or even frequently the other symptoms that may also occur include - nausea,indigestion,loss of appetite, acidity, abdominal wind/gas/flatulence, etc. Though all of these may not be directly linked to the Gall Stone clinical observations have shown a very high concurrence of these symptoms with Gall Stone patients.

There would be two scenarios -
The First scenario - where you have already been diagnosed that you have Gall Bladder Stones by your regular physician. In this case we would need all the medical records that are related as well as unrelated to the disease. We would want to know what other diseases you are suffering from and what all treatments you are undergoing. If you have undergone any medical investigations like X-Ray, CT-Scan, MRI, as well as pathological reports for Blood, urine, etc. We would ideally like to have copies of all these reports - which can be scanned and emailed to us or even faxed after we have requested for them.
After reviewing the reports the doctor would adopt a treatment strategy and prescribe two sets of medicines. One set would contain the ones that you need to have regularly irrespective of any symptoms. The other set would contain medicines that would be used as per necessity on an SOS basis. This will include the pain relieving medication, medication for nausea and several other symptoms that we have found our Gall Bladder stone patients have experienced. This set of reserve medicines is called the 'Gall Bladder Stone kit'. It gives the telemedicine Centre the ability to respond to any emergencies or even minor discomforts that may be experience by the the patient from time to time. Many of these symptoms may not be related to the disease directly but we have found a strong concurrence of these conditions from our vast experience in treating such patients over decades.
The Second scenario - where the patient only complains of certain symptoms and is unaware of any diagnosis. Based on the patient's description of the symptoms we suspect gall bladder stone and if the patient is in a position to we advise an Ultra Sonography (USG), or an X-ray if USG is not possible for any reason. This is only to confirm our suspicion. However, if for any reason beyond the control of the patient, he/she is unable to get a scan done and is in a lot of pain, we can straight away initiate the treatment if we are are satisfied, based on our vast experience, after speaking to the patient about the symptoms. This approach is very safe in our case as there is no scope of any side-effects if for any reason the diagnosis is ultimately corrected when the patient actually could go for the confirmatory investigations. This is an extreme rarity for us because we have been successfully treating and absorbing the experience of treating all kinds of patients including those suffering from Gall Bladder Stones since 1918 - which is long before USG and even X-Rays were invented and became accessible to people.
All the patient has to do is either refer to the instruction that accompanied the medicines or get in touch with the Telemedicine centre by email or even phone.
Where felt necessary a common kit of medicines is provided to the patient. So that during the course of the treatment - whatever the patient suffers from - be it headache, colds, fever, diarrohea, minor injuries, etc. he does not have to resort to any other form of treatment. This also works in the same way. As soon as the patient experiences any problems related to his health he only contacts the telemedicine service and a medicine is prescribed to him. He doesn't even have to leave the house to find and buy the medicines.
