Stinging-Nettle-Urtica-Dioica
The stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is maybe the best herb for supporting the formation of blood. Nettles are also one of the best blood-purifiers, which is why they are part of my spring detox, just like dandelion  (Taraxacum officinale) and ramson (Allium ursinum). I use the freshly picked nettles in my regular juices and my smoothies. In a plastic bag they stay fresh in the refrigerator for a few days, but they will lose some nutrient content and vital energy. Still way better than most, if not all, ‘food’ that you can buy in the supermarket. Stinging nettles are unmatched energy & nutrient bombs. And even kale looks like a weakling in comparison.

Could junk food increase your risk of MS, asthma and eczema? Scientists link SALT to autoimmune diseases for first time (Daily Mail, March 6, 2013):

  • First time excess salt has been linked to these diseases, say the researchers
  • Salt appears to affect how certain cells in the immune system work
  • Mice fed a high-salt diet also had higher levels of inflammation
  • Humans did not evolve eating high-salt diets, which may be the problem

The modern diet of takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in conditions such as multiple sclerosis, say scientists.

Multiple sclerosis is one of a host of autoimmune diseases, including alopecia, asthma and eczema, where a person’s immune system attacks itself in error.

Now a team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say salty diets could be partly to blame.

‘This study is the first to indicate that excess salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases,’ they said.
