While researching ingredients for my new anti-aging serum and pain balm I rediscovered the stinging nettle and had to share. The stinging nettle grows wildly in many parts of the United States and is often considered a weed. Stop pulling out your stinging nettle! Instead juice the raw leaves or dry them to make tea. You may also find that when buying herbs the stinging nettle is economical.
Here is a short list of the benefits of stinging nettle:
- A natural cleanse that removes metabolic wastes and stimulates the lymph system.
- Treats the pain of arthritis, gout, rheumatism and also pain from fibromyalgia, tendonitis and auto-immune disorders such as Lupus.
- Reduces PMS and menopausal symptoms, helps remove fibroids and regulates menopausal flow.
- Relief for allergies!
- Helpful for the bladder and urinary tract in both sexes.
- Digestive aid.
- Relieves sore throat pain, nose bleeds and mouth sores.
- Destroys intestinal worms and parasites!
How could I have overlooked this miraculous and economical healing plant? You will find it as an ingredient for several of the new products I am developing. Meanwhile, trot off the the health food store and buy a box of stinging nettle tea. As always, ask your health care professional before adding herbal items to your diet.
