Cleavers - Natural remedy for Urinary Incontinence: Cleavers gets its name from the small hooked hairs on its leaves that cause it to ‘cleave’ - or attach to anything that touches it. Cleavers treat urinary problems in part because of its diuretic effect. It also acts as a soothing coating along the inside of the bladder wall that may protect against irritation. Herbal tea or half a teaspoon of a liquid extract can be taken three times a day. To make herbal tea infuse one teaspoon of dried herbs in one cup of boiling water, strain and drink.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
