In brief: None

There is no effective homeopathic treatment for gallstones.
In the past some prescribed medicines were used to dissolve stones, but they had many side effects and were not that effective. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has replaced medical dissolution and shock wave treatment.

In brief: Good luck ...

Dissolution therapy with oral bile salts is slow & prolonged (6-12 months) and often unreliable (low efficacy unless stones are pure cholesterol stones and are not calcified).
Side effects are possible and there is a probable lifetime commitment to therapy, if it works at all. Address with your doctor your reservations about conventional treatment options.
