Herbology||||| Gravel Root Is?

As its common name indicates, gravel root is a valuable herb for urinary tract problems. Gravel root helps to prevent the formation of kidney and bladder stones and may diminish existing stones. Gravel root is also useful for cystitis, urethritis, prostate enlargement (and other forms of obstruction), and for rheumatism and gout. The root is thought to help the latter two conditions by increasing the removal of waste by the kidneys.

  1. Step 1

    Place 1 tsp. of dried gravel root in 8 oz. of water. Bring to a boil. Simmer for about ten minutes, filter through a strainer and drink. Repeat up to three times daily for good health.

  2. Step 2

    Prevent kidney stones. Kidney stones, commonly called gravel, form when minerals in the urine crystallize. Gravel root adjusts the degree to which the urine is acidic or basic, decreasing the likelihood of stone formation.

  3. Step 3

    Treat kidney stones. Once formed, kidney stones must be eliminated. Gravel root promotes the urination needed to pass the stones and restore health of the urinary tract.

  4. Step 4

    Remedy gout. It is characterized by painful joints due to overproduction of uric acid. Gravel root promotes urination and elimination of uric acid from the body.

  5. Step 5

    Improve menstrual health. Take gravel root at the first sign of menstrual cramping. It also increases negligible menstrual flow.

  6. Step 6

    Reduce fever. Notice a reduction in body temperature almost immediately after consumption of gravel root. Continue to monitor temperature. Prolonged elevation of body temperature is a serious health concern requiring medical attention.
