Urinary Incontinence Treatments In Herbal medicine

Urinary Incontinence, a medical, psychological, social, economic, and hygienic problem, is defined as a condition of loss of the bladder to control that can lead to mild or severe form of involuntary leakage of urine. Involuntary urine leakage or urinary incontinence is frequent among elderly women, adult women, even among adolescent women.
B. In herbal medicine perspective
1.  St John's wort
In the study to evaluate the effect of St. John's wort (SJW), an effective and safe herbal antidepressant, on rat bladder contractility, showed that SJW inhibits excitatory transmission of the rat urinary bladder and also directly inhibits smooth muscle contractility. The inhibitory effect on excitatory transmission could involve, at least in part, opioid receptors. SJW may be evaluated for its possible use in treating urinary incontinence in depressed patients(44).
2. Saw palmetto
Saw palmetto is claimed to help treat the symptoms of enlarged prostate, or BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy). These symptoms include increased nighttime urination and/or decreased urinary flow. There also have been reports of patients using saw palmetto for stomach or intestinal problems, bladder irritation, and bronchitis(45).
3. Green tea 
Green tea drinking is inversely associated with urinary incontinence. In the study to investigate the association between green tea consumption and urinary incontinence among middle-aged and older women, showed that suggested an inverse association between urinary incontinence and habitual green tea consumption in middle-aged and older women(46).
