In brief: Adjunct only
Please forgive my frankness.
I too love the traditional cultures of the East, but any ethical physician -- no matter what ethnicity -- will recommend evidence-based treatment. Kidney stones are a serious danger to your health and even your life. If you've been offered lithotripsy or some other 21st century treatment, that's the way to go. "Ayurvedic" remedies are for the most part ineffective.

Only uric acid stones can be dissolved with some medications.
...Most stones are not uric acid based and will not go away unless paseo or removed surgically.....There is no magic here !
