Stinging Nettle / Urtica dioica Tea
Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is a plant native to Europe and northern Africa that can help combat the symptoms of COVID-19, influenza, and the common cold. Specifically, stinging nettle can treat:
- Rash and/or itching
- Sneezing and runny nose
- Inflammation of the nose or eyes
This product is a tea. To use it to treat the symptoms of COVID-19 or other related illnesses, we recommend steeping 4g of the dried leaf in hot (almost boiling) water for 10 minutes. Drink 3-4 mugs of this tea per day. Also put a mug of stinging nettle tea next to your bed to drink throughout the night to prevent coughing fits.
Do not use stinging nettle if you are pregnant as it can stimulate uterine contractions, thus inducing labor or causing miscarriage. However, women who are lactating should known that this plant can help increase breast milk supply. It can also treat anemia, making it particularly good for women who have just given birth.
NOTE: This plant is an antioxidant, so avoid combining it with MMS/CDS or other oxidant therapies.
