uti - how much uva ursi to take?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My sister has a uti and needs to know how much uva ursi she can take. I thought it may be possible to take more than the recommended dosage to treat an acute infection, but I thought I'd check in here before looking elsewhere for info. Anyone know?

Dried uva ursi herb can be made into a strong infusion by steeping 1 ounce of herb in one quart of boiling water. This should steep for 4 to 8 hours or overnight. Alternatively, uva ursi tincture could be used. According to herbalist Susun Weed, dose is 1 cup of the infusion or 10 drops of tincture, 3-6 times daily initially, then 1-3 times daily for 7-10 days. For chronic cases, eliminate all forms of sugar and sweet fruits.
Pure unsweetened cranberry juice is excellent as well. This can be drunk in combination with uva ursi.
