Antilithic Herbs

Antilithic herbs work in the removal of urinary calculi and stones from the kidneys or bladder, or prevent their development. A herb that has a demulcent or diuretic activity, used to ease the passage of the calculus, as opposed to actually disintegrating it, are sometimes lumped in this category but cannot be thought of as true antilithics. Antilithics are similar to lithotriptics (An agent that affects the dissolution of a calculus.). An Anti-lithic will increase urine flow, increasing the flushing of kidneys and tubes. Some herbs used for this purpose are

  • Agnimantha
  • Buchu Leaves
  • Gokshura
  • Gravel Root
  • Hydrangea
  • Jin Qian Cao
  • Madder
  • Pashanabheda
  • Stone Root
  • Uva Ursi Leaves
