A cup of warm water followed by a cup of nettle tea first thing in the morning will get you going in the bowel department.
The Nettle plant is used to treat gout and arthritis and has antihistamines and asthma-relieving properties. It is also used as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, blood cleaner, diuretic and digestive stimulant. Nettle infusion is a safe, gentle diuretic which is considered restorative for the kidneys and bladder. It’s also recommended for weight loss, but you may shed more pounds of water than fat.
Here's a great alternative to the traditional hot or Ice Tea without the caffeine! It's a super pick me-up in the middle of the day.
Hot or Ice Nettle Tea. Bring a quart of water to a boil. Put 2 tablespoons of dry nettle leaves into a teapot and cover with the boiling water. Let the tea brew for 3-5 minutes. Strain before cooling. Add more water, lemon, and your stevia.
