About Urinary Tract Support: The urinary system is a major waterway of the body, and its preferred state is one that is moist and cool. Urinary Tract Support is a unique blend of herbs that offer specific support, encouraging healthy immune function for the overall terrain and tissue of the urinary tract.
This blend is best taken short-term and combined with intentional lifestyle choices. To add further support for a healthy urinary tract while taking this product, drink plenty of room temperature water. Avoid sugar (white or brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, fruit juices), caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and processed foods. Combine with one of our nervine and stress support tinctures and try to get plenty of rest. For longer-term support, consider Urinary Tract Tonic.
Garden Notes: We encourage a lovely bed of Chickweed to grow and spread in a shaded part of our gardens. Corn Silk comes from a local organic corn grower. We grow, hand-dig, and tincture Echinacea root, a wonderful herb that is added into this blend. Yerba Mansa, a special plant, is sent to us from the Southwest. And after the first frost in fall, Deb hikes up to a special nearby ledge on a friend's wild land, and hand-gathers the creeping Uva Ursi vines. This harvest marks the end of our plant harvests.
