      (Uva, a grape; ursus, a bear.)

Uva-ursi is an ancient astringent and haemostatic and Hahnemann’s contribution to the proving seems to consist of the words, “involuntary discharge of urine.”.


      Our principal use of this remedy is in cystitis, with the following symptoms as found in the Handbook: “Frequent urging, with severe spasm of the bladder, burning (194) and tearing pain; urine contains blood and tough mucus (199), which can be rolled out of the vessel in large masses.,”

Uva-ursi us used as an excitant in prolonged labors due to atony of the uterus and for uterine haemorrhage, it causing contractions that are more prolonged and less painful than those resulting from Ergot.
