When we are looking for a solution to our health problems, we tend to forget that nature has provided us with everything needed for health and that we have natural and free medicines right within our grasp.
So I was surprised when I came across this article, which talks about ordinary nettle
Although we have all heard something about the healing properties of nettle, I do not know how many of us are truly aware of how healing this plant really is.
The article was translated from English, but the name of the doctor is, unfortunately, unknown.
“Nettle is one of the most useful herbs. If people understood how beneficial this plant is, everyone would plant nettles only.
All parts of the nettle – stems, leaves, roots and flowers – have medicinal properties
In ancient times, nettle was highly appreciated and prized. The painting by Albrecht Duerer (1471 – 1528) depicts an angel with nettles in his hands.
Swedish scientist Abbe Kuenzle claimed that nettle would have long vanished from the face of the earth, if it did not have stings to protect it. Animals and insects would have eaten it long ago.
I once advised a mother of seven children, who, after giving her last birth started suffering from headaches and eczema, to drink nettle tea.
In a short time, she was cured both of eczema and headaches. Since eczema has internal causes, it should be treated by taking blood-cleansing herbs.
Nettle is the best plant for cleansing and improving the blood. It has a positive effect on the pancreas and helps lower blood sugar.
Nettle can also cure the urinary tract infections and stimulates the bowel functions. That is why the nettles are recommended as a part of the spring cleansing of the organism.
In herbal medicine, nettle tea is used for liver and bile, for sleep disorders, spleen tumors, stomach cramps, ulcers, lung disease etc.
Tea should be consumed during the period of four weeks
Do not boil the tea, because it will destroy valuable ingredients.
You can drink one cup of nettle tea every day throughout the year, in order to prevent ailments from ever developing. Nettle tea is also beneficial against viral and bacterial infections.
If you suffer from a lack of iron in the body and you feel tired and useless, nettle is what you need! Nettle contains a lot of iron and has been successfully used to treat anemia. After some time, you will once again feel filled with life energy and health.
Once a young woman came to me looking anemic. In addition to iron deficiency, she had stomach and gall bladder problems and she suffered from headaches.
I recommended her to start consuming nettle tea. After some time we met again, and she told me enthusiastically how quickly she was healed with the help of the nettle tea. The whole of her family turned to natural treatment after that.
Nettle tea is a diuretic and therefore can be used for dropsy
It builds blood and is therefore beneficial for the treatment of many blood diseases.
In combination with other herbs, nettle can be successfully used for treating leukemia. People who suffer from allergies, including hay fever, should consume nettle tea.”
