Cranberry (Vaccinium vitis idaea)


Cranberries are astringent and can be used for inner bleeding (stomach/lung).
The fruits are used in various preparations for coughs, colds and feverish infections.
The juice is refreshing and vitalizing and is recommended for cases of mental and physical exhaustion.
For bronchial catarrh one can simmer leaves and berries with honey to make an effective decongestant and anti-catarrhal remedy.
The leaves are used similarly to the closely related bearberry (Uva ursi) for kidney and bladder complaints, such as kidney infections, stones, bladder cramp, urethritis, suppressed urination etc..
