Wanted to share this....I have been on a gluten-free diet for 1 1/2 years but for the longest time still having issues.....something in my body was being attacked randomly like a wild fire. I went completely grain free, sugar free 6 months ago and FINALLY after over a year the buzzing in my ears went away. If I did have any corn or rice I noticed my hands would get tight and my feet would hurt. So I tried nettle tea which claimed to help with inflammation.....BINGO, it worked!!!! I drank a cup every day the first week, now I drink a cup every other day and I can now have small amounts of corn and rice without my hands and feet hurting, and no more ringing in my ears!!!!

That's awesome that you found something to help you! I was wondering if you are still having double vision or any of the other symptoms you were experiencing? Did the nettle tea take care of your remaining problems from having Celiac?

I'm so interested to know.

I had totally forgotten about nettle tea or it's existence. It is the only thing that my grammy says keeps her going. It is the difference between her hands being in knots and her being able to knead bread and crochet like she always has. Without it her joints will swell like balloons.

Can you get that in a tea bag? I thought someone said you get the nettles and soak them or something? How does it taste?

oh baby, do I need this!! I still have wicked inflammation and I have tried EVERYTHING suggested to me. I mean it. (Even weirdo stuff I would never admit to openly.) :lol:

Ok, I just read this:

"If there's one plant to have on hand at all times that provides a cure for arthritis, an herbal treatment for allergies, relieves hair loss, treats Celiac disease, bleeding, bladder infections, skin complaints, neurological disorders and a long list of other conditions -- it's nettle leaf.

Nettle plants grow wild across the U.S., Europe and around the globe; they are used for both medicinal purposes and as food. Highly nutritious, the prickly plant is often used as a spring tonic. It's a natural cleanse that removes metabolic wastes and is both gentle and stimulating on the lymph system, promoting easy excretion through the kidneys.

Learn more: http://www.naturalne...l#ixzz28dlSHPq3


..did I read that correctly: treats celiac disease? well, it explains it more fully as....helps reduce symptoms.

I'm willing to give it a try for these aching joints and bones. And if my hair grows in faster, it would be a major bonus.

Thanks for sharing, A!!

Wow-- my MIL swears by stinging nettles for allergies. Lately my knees feel like they're 95, I'm trying this. Thanks:)

To answer my own question - yes. I found some at Whole Foods

They do, I saw it when I googled !! :D

Bummer, we do not have a Whole Foods or a Wegmans--but they should be here by 2014, I have learned.... whoohoo!

I had to resort to the ever-popular "delivery by amazon".

I can't wait to try! I hadn't considered it before, but is my celiac disease causing my joint stiffness and my aching foot pain? Geez! I didn't know that too. I have actually been getting ready to call the Dr. about my aching joints. I will first try Nettle tea.

probably. Has your doc checked your ANA, sed rate, c-reactive protein etc. for inflammatory diseases?

Got it at Weggies:). Brewed a cup when we got home-- tasted nice, not too strong or bitter.

We should all compare notes going forward!
