I was able to find the following information on a herbal website.
CORN SILK (Zea mays) Very beneficial to the urinary tract for infections and helping to pass urinary stones. A soothing diuretic for kidney and bladder problems, and for the purulent decomposition of the urine. Eliminates pain in the urination due to prostate gland dysfunctions. Helpful for children with bedwetting difficulties. The French and Chinese use it to promote the flow of bile. Some herbalists use Zea mays to lower blood pressure.
UVA URSI (Arctostaphylos uva ursi) Also known as Bearberry. Arbutin in this plant converts to hydroquinone, which acts as an urinary disinfectant; it is most effective with alkaline urine. Uva Ursi has a specific affinity for the genito-urinary organs, especially for gravel or ulcerations of the kidney and bladder. It is used for urinary tract infections, including cystitis, nephritis, urethritis, pyelitis (inflammation of the pelvis of the kidney), hematuria (bloody urine), yeast infections, vulvitis, for the acute pain in the initial outbreaks of genital herpes and venereal warts, and for hot inflammation of bacterial vaginosis.
Uva Ursi acts to tone, smooth and strengthen the mucus membranes of the urinary tract, and it is a solvent for urinic calculi deposits. Other indications: urine incontinence, diabetes, Brightâs disease, dysentery, piles, hemorrhoids, excessive menstruation, spleen/liver/pancreas, bladder mucus discharge, gonorrhea, and syphilis. Externally, the boiled tea can be used as a wash for abrasions, infections, contusions and bruises. CAUTION: Uva Ursi is very high in tannins and should not be used for more than 2-3 days as it will cause irritation in the stomach lining and the kidneys. Also, the hydroquinone is poisonous. Do not use during pregnancy because high quantities act as a vasoconstrictor to the uterus and may decrease circulation.
Due to the poisonous nature and the recommendation that it not be used for more than 2-3 days at a time, I would be hesitant to use the Ursi in my children. I might give Corn silk a try.
