      Arctostaphylos uva-ursi. Bearberry. N.O. Ericaceae. Tincture or trituration of dried leaves and fruit. Tincture of fresh leaves gathered in autumn.


Cystitis. Dysuria. Hematuria. Urinary affections.


A few experiments have been made with Uva, and these have seemed to accentuate its traditional reputation as an “astringent used to check excessive secretion of mucus, as in urinary and bronchial affections, and even in calculus.” The keynote indications are: Painful micturition with burning sensation. Burning after the discharge of slimy urine. Slime passes with blood. In one cured case there were pains shooting through from hip to hip. The bladder symptoms are better lying on the back.


*Compare: Arbut., Gaulther., and Ericaceae generally.



Slight vertigo and headache.


Fluent coryza with rawness.




Weak, sick at stomach, sore all over as if bruised.
