Arthritis Relief with Stinging Nettle Tea
Commonly regarded as a weed by most people, stinging nettles are known for their propensity to grow anywhere without encouragement, and the nasty sting they cause when grabbed by the unwary gardener.
Although this chemically induced sting is the cause of much discomfort and infamy for the stinging nettle, it is also the reason why the stinging nettle is such a medicinally useful plant.
By knowing how to treat the stinging nettle and turn it into a natural tea, you can enjoy a free, naturally occurring drink with many benefits to your health.
How Does it Work?
Historically, relief from arthritis with stinging nettles was achieved by topically applying the herb directly onto the skin of the affected area.
However, no studies have confirmed the link between this method of treatment and an actual reduction in pain. Evidence to support this practice is purely anecdotal. This is not to suggest that a link doesn’t exist though – merely that science has yet to verify it.
In light of this you may wish to consider making stinging nettle tea a part of your regular diet, along with topical applications of stinging nettle to the areas of your body affected by arthritis.Beneficial for much more than arthritis treatment, stinging nettle tea has a very long list of health benefits indeed. By incorporating stinging nettle tea into your diet, you will enjoy the beneficial side effects to your health, as they spill over into other areas of your life.
