How do I take verbuscum thapsus mother tincture to cure bed wetting ; What is the dose? Can it cure bed wetting problem?
12 Jun 2019
Look into dandelion root (or leaf/flower mixed with small amount root if this is a child being treated). Dandelion has a reputation for treating urinary problems, including bed-wetting. Give to patient as a strong tea (or capsule/herbal jam with sugar for children) in the earlier parts of the day, maybe 2-4 times well before dinner. This will help the urinary tract clean and build during the day, so that bed-wetting is less likely at night.

Also try seeing an ayurvedic doctor (vaidya), as you're in India. They have different methods but can help. They may help to spot what is causing bed-wetting in addition to providing medicine.
