PRIMARY USES:Urinary Tract Infections, Allergies (Hayfever), Edema, Trace Mineral Deficiency
Nettles are traditionally used as a diuretic in urinary tract infections and edema; it helps the body rid itself of water by increasing urine. It also can be used for any condition helped by increasing water elimination such as high blood pressure, swollen ankles, urinary tract infections, retained water from airplane trips, humidity and many other reasons. As a diuretic, it is also a blood cleanser.
It also can be used as an antihistamine for hayfever; it also helps to limit a histamine reaction and is best used before an allergy is out of control. Use in the beginning of an allergy season when possible; it has milder effects and is not as powerful as a pharmaceutical antihistamine.
Nettles is very high in trace minerals and is considered a nutritive herb; therefore, it is indicated for deficiency disorders.
