The Kidney and Bladder Herb: Juniper berries. Latin name-genus is Juniperus communis. Use the fruit, berry. Whatever the species, the berries should be blue to purple in color, and when chewed or squashed the result should smell like gin. Many berries sold are brown, dried-up and "dead" and will not be either diuretic or disinfectant. Other favorites include Uva Ursi leaf (Latin name is Arctostayphlos uva ursi), Corn silk (Latin name is Zea mays.)

Uses: Diuretic (makes you pee) and Urinary Disinfectant. These herbs increase the flow of urine and destroy bacteria in the kidneys and bladder. To dissolve stones, see the formula which follows at the end of this section.

Dosage internal: Take one tablespoon of juniper berries for every 20 ounces water. Crush the berries, and simmer for 15 minutes, and you end up with 16 ounces of tea. Take 3-4 times per day in an emergency.

Also, when there are kidney stones, or difficulty urinating, or a blocked gall bladder, use foot reflexology. Work the bottom of the feet real hard. Work the entire bottom of the foot. This promotes the flow of downward energy and can unblock whatever is blocked in the elimination channels.

I remember one case my teacher Dr. Christopher had where the man could not urinate due to a large kidney stone. The stone dissolving program given later did not work. So, Dr. Christopher worked on the man's foot, digging in so hard the man's screams could be heard down a long hall. Immediately afterward, the stone passed.

Dr. Schulze's Kidney/Bladder Tonic formula: Uva Ursi leaf 20%, Juniper berry 40%, Corn silk 20%, Horsetail herb 5%, Burdock root and seed 10%, Goldenrod flowers 5%.

Emergency Internal Dosage for Tincture: 5 to 10 dropperfuls of the Kidney/bladder Tonic, or make strong juniper berry tea. Do the Kidney and Bladder Flush, then 5 minutes later drink two cups of Kidney/Bladder Tea.

The Kidney Bladder flush: Juice of one lemon and one lime, 16 to 32 ounces of distilled water, A pinch of cayenne pepper, and maple syrup to taste (optional).

Dr. Schulze's Kidney and Bladder Tea, plus stone dissolving herbs (for those who need them): 60% by volume an equal blend of Juniper berry, Uva Ursi leaf, Parsley root and leaf, Corn silk, Horsetail herb, Dandelion leaf and Marshmellow root. Then, add 20% by volume of Hydrangea root and 20% by volume Gravel root. These are stone dissolving herbs.

Soak 4 ounces in 2 quarts of fresh apple juice for 2 days, then bring up to a simmer. Let cool and drink 4 ounces an hour all day long. Also, drink an additional 32 ounces of distilled water.

I had patients with kidneys full of stones who dissolved them with this formula. If the stones are really large, it may take 3-4 times of using this program to get them to pass. If the stones are small like gravel, they may depart immediately.
