What is Gallstone?
Ayurveda refers to gallstones as Pittashmari. Gallstone formation is the most common disorder of the biliary tract. The process of formation of gallstones is called cholelithiasis in modern medicine. Though men and women both suffer from gallstones, their prevalence is much more in middle-aged women. The formation of gallstones is caused mainly by congestion and obstruction in the flow of bile. Many factors like food habits, body weight, and genetic predisposition undoubtedly play a role in the formation of gallstones. Gallstones usually occur in conjunction with cholecystitis which means inflammation of the wall of the gall bladder.
