Hydrangea Root is great for preventing the formation of bladder and kidney stones. It also sooths the prostate and bladder and also the kidneys… plus it is a great diuretic and helps flush out stones and some say it helps with the back pain associated with passing a stone. Also works well for urinary tract infections and new studies have shown that it might have great benefit in the treatment of auto-immune diseases such as lupus, MS, types of arthritis and other immune diseases. It can help with blood sugar problems and it is one of the few things that will help people with scleroderma… and there are studies underway on how effective Hydrangea Root will be for that disease. And Hydrangea Root tea also works well with Nettle Tea and also Gravel Root. Nettle Tea helps dissolve bladder stones and sooth the urinary tract and Gravel Root or sometimes called Queen of the Meadow Root helps the kidneys to work more efficiently.
