    Benefits of Stinging Nettle Tea for Allergies

    Benefits of Stinging Nettle Tea for Allergies

    Stinging nettle is a powerful healing herb, and stinging nettle tea has many benefits.

    Nettles grow in damp, nutrient-rich soils in temperate climates. Most species are perennial, and they often grow in patches or clumps. True to their name, they sting. If you casually brush against the leaves or stems, their hollow needle-like projections inject a slightly irritating substance into your skin. "The sting" is usually a minor irritation and can be therapeutic. Some people with arthritis find that they experience less pain and inflammation in that area after that initial sting.

    In this episode, I share how you can work with stinging nettle, specifically for allergies. But nettle has many gifts, from healing food to powerful herbal medicine that goes beyond allergies.

    Three Ways Plants Heal

    Three Ways Plants Heal

    Herbs are powerful medicines. I've seen them bring instant relief to bee stings and other painful injuries. I've seen them heal up surgical wounds so fast that it amazed doctors, and I've seen them reduce blood pressure and relieve arthritis. I've seen them bring welcome relief to insomniacs and help people clear up acne to reveal radiant skin underneath. I even credit my miraculous recovery from a terminal autoimmune disease to herbal medicine.

    Yes, herbs are powerful! They're accessible, and they're often growing right outside our door, which begs the question: if herbs are so great, why aren't they more mainstream? Why do we regularly see doctors instead of herbalists? Why isn't herbalism a recognized system of medicine?

    In this episode, I share three ways you can turn to herbs for healing. My approach is different than what you typically find in Western medicine, and I offer a framework for working with herbs that have worked for me.
