Many people suffer from a weak bladder, especially so on rainy days or when walking downhill. Warm Yarrow and Horsetail sitz baths — 100 gm. herbs per bath — are very beneficial (see General Information "sitz bath"). 4 cups of Lady'sMantle tea are to be drunk daily and the area of the bladder is rubbed with Shepherd's Purse tincture (see "Shepherd's Purse") which tones up the muscles externally. Additionally Shepherd's Purse sitz baths are recommended (100 gm. herbs per bath). Excellent, too, are salt sitz baths. 1 handful of cooking salt is added to the warm sitz bath water. These sitz baths taken in the evening should be continued until the bladder functions normally.
