Actions: Soothing to inflamed and irritated tissues of the lower urinary tract. Helps restore natural elasticity to flaccid tissue of the urinary bladder, urethra and ureter. Favorably enhances neurological innervation to over-relaxed urinary sphincters and thereby helps restore their natural tone.
Uses: Indicated in urinary weakness and incontinence of the aged, and bed- wetting of children.
Dose: Adults: Three times per day, take 30 to 40 drops in water. Children: Adjust above adult doses according to child’s body weight (see Clarks Rule ).
Continued use for chronic conditions: Take drops 2 times per day, 6 days per week, for several weeks to several months. Two to four, or even six months’ use may be needed before significant results are seen.
Adjunct Therapy: In cases associated with painful or burning urination, take 30 to 40 drops of Marshmallow Extract with the above doses.
Cautions: Urinary incontinence is sometimes associated with urinary tract infections that can lead to serious medical consequences. If symptoms persist for more than a few days, and especially if there is pain, blood or fever, promptly seek qualified healthcare. Larger doses of Arnica may rarely cause nervous excitement or irritation of throat and stomach. Discontinue use if these symptoms appear.
