Natural way to flush gallstones.
Drink  juice of 5 apples(2 glasses of pure apple juice) everyday  for five days and eat normally.This softens the gallstones.
On sixth day eat nothing(only drink warm water), do not take any medication.At about 6pm, mix one tablespoon epsom salts in water and drink it.Repeat epsom drink after 2 hours.
After 2 hours, mix thoroughly,half cup olive oil,half cup orange juice and  juice from one fresh whole lemon.Drink this mixture quickly, standing up.Lie down on your right side for at least 20 minutes.Next day have fruit juice and fruit first and then resume normal eating.
The gallstones will be softened and will be flushed out.

The Yog Pranayam (breathing exercises) will help dissolve the gall stones and should be done in addition to the above.
Build up your timing gradually. If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute.

Bhastrika pranayam - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose. Duration upto 5 minutes.

Kapalbhati pranayam-(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Drugs. Ursodeoxycholic acid (Actigall) or chenodiol (Chenix) can both help dissolve gallstones, and may be used as an alternative to surgery. However, this treatment can take months and stones can recur.

Sound waves. This approach, called lithotripsy, involves the use of high-energy shock waves to break up gallstones. However, this procedure is considered appropriate only for patients who cannot undergo surgery. It works best on single stones that are less than two centimeters in diameter. Risks include pain and pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas, which can occur within a month of treatment. There is also the chance that not all of the stone fragments will pass through the bile duct out of the gallbladder, leaving patients at risk for potentially serious future problems. Lithotripsy is commonly used to treat kidney stones.

Planetary Formulas has a product called Stone Free that might help.  You might want to contact them.  It's usually used for kidney stones, however.  It's a good company to talk to.

It also depends upon where your gallstone is located. If it is blocking a biliary tract then you have a more serious situation that needs to be resolved as soon as possible!
There are natural ways to soften and move stones out of the gallbladder, if it isn't a serious situation.
