Hello and welcome.

Asparagus is said to help dissolve KIDNEY stones.

Some natural remedies that may help dissolve gall stones include:

1. Vitamin C supplementation
2. Lecithin supplementation
3. Increasing dietary fiber.

Gallstones are formed by cholesterol so are easier to prevent than to get rid of once formed. These methods do not always work. Hope this information helps.
