Natural Diruetics?

Does anyone know of any natural diruetics (sp??) either over the counter or preferably in food form? I read that celery and asparagus are natural diruetics.

Off the top of my head are dandelion, uva ursi (don't ask!), hydrangea, buchu???(something like that.)

The herbals are MUCH more expensive than HCTZ and don't work as well.

Try DOANS PILLS for's got a melange of all the above herbals and supposedly eases backache by diuresis, supposedly draining fluid from the site of inflammation. Not cheap though for everyday use.

Any health food store will have several formulations of diuretical herbs.
