Nettle

Nettle

Nettle: High in proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Helps w/ reduction of mucous on membranes, low blood pressure, kidney function, arthritis, muscle weakness. Has a superior reputation for getting patients off dialysis. Actually, quite an effective herb with a long-standing reputation in the herbal community, and is now and has been the go-to herb when nothing else works.
Treats: Low blood pressure, mouth sores, mucus, bronchitis, asthma, diarrhea, dysentery, swelling of kidneys, edema, eczema, inactive kidneys, inflammation of the bladder, impotence, excessive menstruation, anemia during pregnancy, lack of milk production during lactation, muscle atrophy, arthritis, gout, hypothyroid, skin burns, hives, bites, stings, deer fly bites.
Usage: fresh picked, young plants used direct on inactive parts. The healing acids in the plant break down fast after picking, so pick fresh, then extract in alcohol. Dry leaves can be used in teas for the nutritive factor.
Personal Notes: Ever woken up w/ a stiff finger, or a sore joint? My bit of personal remedy for isolated arthritis flair ups, is to search for a young, stingy nettle plant. Pick it  and wrap the area of pain. I keep it on as long as it feels active and stingy. I notice the next day, my pain and stiffness of the joint is greatly reduced. Yes, I have some small red-blister like patterns around the area, but I’m fine w/ it, as long as I have relief and blisters subside w/ in 24 hours.
