Ayurvedic view of Treatment

According to Ayurveda, formation of gallstones is caused due to imbalance of all three doshas viz. vata, pitta and kapha. Excessive increase of pitta (caused by hot, spicy food, alcohol etc.) creates the basis for stone formation. Kapha increased by fatty, heavy foods mixes with pitta. and produces a highly sticky mixture. Vata dries this mixture and moulds it into shape of a stone.
