Amla Home Remedy For Frequent Urination – Prepare It Within A Minute

Health benefits of Amla are innumerable. It is Indian gooseberry, used as the main ingredient of medicines like Chyawanprash, Triphala etc. Here is a very simple home remedy using Amla, banana fruit etc, useful for people with frequent urination problem. 

Natural home remedy for frequent urination – What you need?
A banana fruit
An Amla fruit
A small piece of sugar candy / unprocessed sugar / jaggery – half to 1 teaspoonful.
Honey – half to one teaspoonful. 

How to make?

Crush the sugar candy to powder, add it to amla juice mix.
Take this along with a banana fruit and a teaspoon of honey.

Indications –
Useful in kids above 5 years of age, with bed wetting.
Useful in all cases of frequent urination, except in diabetes.
Useful to strengthen the muscles and sphincter of urinary bladder.

Dose –
Juice extracted from one amla fruit, with a banana, and a teaspoon of honey and sugar candy – this can be considered as one dose. up to 4 such doses can be administered in a day.

How long to take?
Since all the four ingredients are used commonly as part of diet, it can be continued for many months.

Shelf life (expiration date)?
Once prepared, better to use it fresh. Amla juice can only be stored for a day.

How does it work?
Amla is a power house of anti oxidants. It helps to cleanse the bladder and improve bladder muscle and sphincter strength.
Banana, having similar properties, is a part of diet and of many home remedies for frequent urination problem.  (example)

Safe for kids?
Yes it is.

Pregnancy and lactation? 
If you are sure about good quality of amla and honey, it can be used even during pregnancy and lactation.

Any side effects?
Very high dose is not recommended. Not usable in diabetic patients.
Can Amla powder be used in place of Amla fruit?
Yes. It can be used. For this, the fresh amla juice can be replaced with half a teaspoon of amla powder. Though it might have a bit lesser effect than with-fruit-remedy, using amla powder makes sense due to unavailability of Amla in many places and times.

A feedback –
Respected Shri Dr. JV Hebbar,
Thank You very much for Your article on Frequent Urination. I was suffering from the same thing with no other disease. I was used to urinate almost every hour, even at night. I was not able  to sleep well. I then rec’d your article and tried on 18th of this month. I was benefited from the same day. Today it is fourth day. I took only one dose in the morning with a mixture of Amla, Ginger & Turmeric juice(which I’ve ready round the year),1 tsp natural jegarry, 1 Banana & 1 tsp honey. Only single dose solved my problem. Today it is fourth day. Now I urinate almost every three hours & only twice at night.
Warm Regards, Thank You – 63 year old female, from India.  (21/02/2014)
