Bitter useful for urinary tract conditions, kidney stones, prostatitis, chicken pox and more.
Pipsissewa is diuretic, disinfectant and antiseptic, and it is used to help relieve problems of the urinary tract. It can be used to treat mild urinary tract infections and the tendency to form kidney stones. Pipsissewa is especially helpful where there is a strong demand to urinate, but little urine is produced and it is cloudy. Pipsissewa is helpful too in chronic urinary tract infections where symptoms of urgency and burning are prominent. A tea of the herb can also be helpful in chronic prostatitis. Pipsissewa is sedative to the urinary tract and can be helpful with pain from this condition or from any of the urinary tract disorders. It can be used on a long-term basis for chronic kidney weakness.
Pipsissewa has another use. It can be taken at the beginning of a measles or chicken pox infection, where it will help to bring out the spots, making the duration of the disease shorter, and the patient more comfortable.
