Kidney Bladder Formula:
This tonic is both diuretic (increases the flow of urine) and disinfectant (destroys urinary tract infections) to the Kidneys, Bladder and Urinary System. Although this action has been known and reported since the beginning of recorded herbal medicine, modern medicine has finally filled their medical books documenting this powerful medicinal action. This formula cured every patient with a urinary infection, even after Antibiotics had failed. It works 100% of the time. This formula works best if used along with the Kidney/Bladder Tea.
Uva Ursi leaf contains powerful phytochemicals such as volatile oils, arbutin, quercetin, and mallic and gallic acids. Arbutin is highly antibacterial and destroys bacteria and fungus that infect the urinary system such as E. coli, Candida albicans, Staphylococcus, etc. One of the ways Arbutin does this is by releasing aglycone hydroquinone and other phytochemicals into the urine. Quercetin is a capillary protectant, protecting the litterally trillions of capillaries existing as part of the delicate kiney filtering system. Mallic and Gallic acids, the same as found in apples and apple cider vinegar have long been used for kidney and bladder infections. All the other herbs in this formula contain phytochemicals that are either diuretic, ant-microbial or anti -inflammatory to the entire urinary system.
1-2 dropperfuls (30-60 drops) in a few ounces of water 3 to 4 times daily, depending on the diuretic action needed or the seriousness of the infections. Best results are obtained if used for 10 days or until the 2 ounce bottle is finished.
