Its demulcent properties soothe irritation and inflammation. It is of value in the treatment of enlarged prostate glands. It may also be used in kidney stones and gravel. As a tonic diuretic, Couchgrass has been used with other herbs in the treatment of rheumatism. Ellingwood says that "its action is solely upon the urinary apparatus. It exercises a soothing, diuretic influence, greatly increasing the flow of the watery portion of the urine without to the same extent influencing the actual renal secretion. It is bland, mild, un-irritating, and is used whenever urine, having a high specific gravity, causes irritation of the kidneys or bladder, more especially of their mucous surfaces." He recommends it for the following conditions: pyelitis, catarrhal and purulent cystitis, gonorrhoea, lithaemia, dysuria, tenesmus, prostatitis, strangury and haematuria. Cystitis, kidney and bladder problems, infections.
