Homeopathy Remedies for Bladder Complaints

Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Bladder, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Chimaphila umbellata [Chim]

      Twenty drops of this tincture in half a tumblerful of water, teaspoonful doses every half hour, is an old remedy for cystitis, or for scanty, ropy muco-purulent urine. It is an old herbal remedy.

Grape fruit, and also hard apple cider, are said to be good for the bladder, for the condition that causes men to get out of bed frequently to urinate when the amount of water passed does not justify the call.

Causticum [Caust]

      There are bladder troubles where, though often called to urinate, there remains the feeling that the bladder is not emptied and the urging continues. In these cases, according to Goullon, Causticum 6th is the remedy. Give every hour until relief, then discontinue.

Ferrum phosphoricum [Ferr-p]

      Inability to retain urine has been cured by Ferrum phos. 6x.

Cantharis [Canth]

      Where the passage of the urine, very often scanty, burns like hot water, Cantharis 3 is a remedy that often works curative wonders. Also where there is a stoppage of the urine-inability to urinate.

But the bladder remedies are legion.
