For many years I have prescribed Rowachol for gallstones, combined with diet instructions.
I don’t have statistics about its effects but I am sure that it did a lot of good. For the first time that I see an article with some “statistics” about Ruwachol
“Ellis et al. indicated in their study
that Rowachol helps in the dissolution of gall bladder stones.
Rowachol is a proprietary preparation containing six plant monoterpenes like menthol, menthone, pinene, borneol, camphene, cineol and base of olive oil that stimulates the liver for bile production and inhibits the formation of cholesterol crystals in bile. Clinical trials suggested that treatment with Rowachol resulted in the partial or complete dissolution in 29 % of patients icluded in the study.
disappeared in 37 % of the patients within one year and in 50 % of the patients within two years.” “The National Cooperative Gallstone Study had indicated that complete dissolution was observed in only 13.5 % of patients after two years in which chenodeoxycholic acid was given singularly at a dose of 750 milligrams per day.6 This study concluded that a combination of medium-dose chenodeoxycholic
acid and Rowachol is an economical and effective method for dissolution of gall stones as compared to high doses of chenodeoxycholic acid alone.”
