Abstract of the paper:
This is a very valuable paper in the field of homoeopathy .It help us establish the role of homoeopathy is surgical diseases like Renal stone. It shows us that the removal of the stone if not the solution to the problem either by surgery of lithotripsy is same as plucking up all the fruits from a tree. But in the next season the i.e. after some time the stone will be formed again. . As the stone is not the cause of the root cause of the problem but it is the offshoot of the derangement the vital force.
But, instead with the homoeopathic treatment the stone is not only removed from the body but its reformation chances are also greatly reduced due to proper homoeopathic treatment.

Objective: –
The objective of this paper is to establish the definite and a positive role of homoeopathy in curing renal stones.

Material and Method: –
This research work is done in the general clinical practice in India. In this work the well-proven homoeopathic medicines were used according to the principles of homoeopathy on the individualization basis.

Renal stones a name with which every one here is familiar. So, I will not waste time in telling you the things you already know.i.e how the stones are formed, what is its pathology and pathogenesis etc.
But I will tell you why one should opt for homeopathy in case of renal stones.
We all know that the renal stones are formed due to the defect in the excretory system i.e. supersaturating, physical and chemical factors like initial formation of crystals, reduced effect of normal urinary
Constituents that inhabits crystal growth and aggregation. Prolonged immobilization. Altered solute and colloid.
So, the removal of the stone if not the solution to the problem either by surgery of lithotripsy is same as plucking up all the fruits from a tree. But in the next season the i.e. after some time the stone will be formed again. . As the stone is not the cause of the root cause of the problem but it is the offshoot of the derangement the vital force.

Discussion and Conclusions.
Now I will take few moments of yours and would like to share with you few tips that I had learnt from my father who is an internationally renowned homeopath and is still serving the humanity by curing in curable cases.

There are few tips in dealing with renal stone cases
The treatment of renal stone is generally done in two phases. They are as follows: –
1] Management of acute stage i.e. renal pain
2] Medicine selected on the totality of symptoms, which not only removes the stone but also stops its reformation.
Generally both the phases of treatment are intermingled together. But in some cases where there is acute pain and retention of urine then the medicine is selected on the basis of symptoms presented by the patient
In this acute stage and medicines like Magnesia phos, belladonna, Causticum , and Cantharis are given as and when required.
The symptoms on which the above mentioned medicines are prescribed
Cantharis: The guiding symptoms, which lead to its prescription, are burning
Emotional stress and suppressed emotions are one of the factors which play an important role in renal stone formation .So, the medicine Staphysagria when the patient has suppressed anger and Ignatia when he has intense or prolonged grief.
Another thing which may be helpful in curing cases of renal stones when the well selected remedy fails is the repeated suppression of eruptions on the body generally on the groins which one had suffered in the past and had been removed by external application of ointments or use of allopathic drugs
The medicine Graphite’s if the eruptions were with wet and sticky discharge and Sulphur if they are dry.
History of syphilis or gonorrhea in the patient or in the history of on the patient’s family demands Syphilinum as an intercurrent remedy.
Hence we conclude that homoeopathy has got an important role to play in dealing with renal stone cases.
