The Stinging Nettle… Should I Supplement With It?

Digging For The Truth
Herbalists often tout how great “nettles” (scientific name, urtica dioica) are for our health, but are they really?

Sting In The Tail
Interestingly enough “Urtica dioica” comes from the Latin word “uro,” and this word means “to burn” (more on this to follow). The leaves of nettle have hair-like structures that sting. Hence, the name… stinging nettle. They also produce itching, redness and swelling. Ask yourself this profound question. Why do people take the “nettles” (a.k.a. stinging nettle) and process them into a supplement, dry them, freeze dry them or cook them in order to “safely” consume them?

What Am I To Believe?
Please, allow Dianne (owner/author of this website) to “prove” her conclusion via Scripture.

1 Thessalonians 5:21… “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”


Isaiah 34:13… “And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.”

Proverbs 24:30-31… “I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.”

Hosea 9:6… “For, lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them up, Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant places for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns shall be in their tabernacles.”

Zephaniah 2:9… “Therefore as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.”

What Are Nettles?
Nettles are weeds that grow in areas of high nitrogen concentration. So, they are most abundant in places where cattle are kept and about habitations. The entire plant is covered with long, highly specialized hairs that can puncture the skin. Each hair is really a miniature hypodermic needle that’s ready to spring into action. At the tip is a lopsided bulb-like structure that’s easily broken at a pre-stressed region. With the slightest touch, the tip falls off leaving the sharp point which can easily penetrate skin. At the base of the hair is a reservoir of irritant, believed to be chemically similar to that injected in ant stings, which is under pressure and escapes through the tip into the victim. The result is a minor dermatitis which will go away in most individuals after thirty minutes or thereabout. This dermatitis, known as “urticaria,” gives the genus its Latin name, Urtica. Ecologically, nettles grow in areas of high nitrogen as well as around ruins and archeological sites. The seeds are “edible,” but they are small and literally a pain to harvest!

The Truth Bomb
Dianne has shown us what’s written in Scripture, and she finds no “proof” whatsoever that we’ve been given “nettles” for our consumption.
