One of the things that comes up the most for everyone’s health with great impacting in re-balancing the body mineral levels is stinging nettle. Personally I grew up with fresh stinging nettle food – puree like spinach, but most of us only have access to making tea from dry leafs. Still a fantastic tool for our best health.
Nettle was used in ancient Greece and Rome. In Medieval Europe, nettle was considered a panacea of sorts and used for all manner of ailments. Nettle tea is considered to be warming.
Best way to make the infusion: 1/3 cup of dried, organic nettle (inexpensive) per 1 liter of water. Boil 1 liter of clean, non-chlorinated water (well or fresh harvested spring water is best) and pour over the dried herbs. Allow to sit overnight or even better for a minimum of 4 hours in the sun to draw all the minerals. Pour through a sieve and compost the herbs. Store in a glass jar in the fridge. Consume within 1-5 days. A quart of nettle infusion contains more than 1000 milligrams of calcium, 15000 IU of vitamin A, 760 milligrams of vitamin K, 10% protein, and lavish amounts of most B vitamins.” Contains numerous phytonutrients and antioxidants. The darker the better. Ideally would be a minimum a cup/day on the maintaining diet and 2-3 cups/day on the restoring diet.
Stinging nettle root is used in treating benign prostate hyperplasia, especially by European medical practitioners, and this is supported by research. Some studies demonstrate that nettle may have at least minor effects in managing and easing allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion, itching, and inflammation.
In traditional use nettle tea is used as a:
- Blood purifier and way to increase circulation
- Hormonal balance and fertility aid for men and women alike
- Wound healing aid
- general tonic
- detoxifying for lymph system, kidneys and liver (ease in quitting smoking).
