Alkaptonuria is a disease of the Body.
The urine turns black when it comes in contact with the air.
It is a genetic disorder.

There is an enzyme known as homogentisate oxidase. It is regulated by the HGD gene. Normally, this enzyme breaks down the amino acids that help to build up protein. These amino acids are Tyrosine and Phenylalanine. Any defect in this gene interrupts the normal functioning of the enzyme. It is not able to break the amino acids as a result, homogentisic acid deposits in the connective tissues. If the acid builds up in the joints, it causes Arthritis and Kidney Problems. When the acid dissolves in the Blood, it mixes with urine and leaves the Body.

Dear Md. Lutful Haque
We have had a word with our expert and according to him it would be difficult to recommend you Herbs for this. However, It may get treated by Homeopathy. So, our advise is you please take your daughter to a Homeopathy Doctor and when he prescribe you any medicine, please give only one dose of that medicine to your daughter and wait for 15 days.
This advice is for educational purpose only. It is not intended to replace a doctor. Please consult your doctor before taking any herb.
