Uva ursi (Bearberry) 60gms
Goldenrod 30gms
Elderflowers 30gms
Corn Silk 20gms

The above amounts make 140gms of herb, enough for at least several weeks of daily use. They are given to show the proportions so of course you can make more or less according to your preference.


The dosage to have a pronounced effect is to pour one large cup of freshly boiled water over 3 hpd tsps, or about 3-4 grams of the herbs. Cover and allow to steep for a good 10-15 minutes, then strain and drink. Adding some honey may be welcome.

The taste of this tea is strong but acceptable and there has been excellent feedback from a great many people as to how much it has helped the break the cycle of urinary tract infections. Despite there being many cautions and concerns about Uva ursi on the internet, it really can be safely taken by anyone from any age as often as they need it.

Please understand that I cannot personally advise you without seeing you in my clinic.
This living 'book' is my labour of love so, wherever you are, I wish you peace & good health!
