Re: Solar Urticaria

In April you recommended me Stinging Nettle for my issue and I feel I am cured but I did not try exposing my skin directly in sun yet. I took nettle tea 3 mugs per day. Shall I reduce to 1 cup? please let me know and how long I should continue.

Thank you a million
21 Sep 2016
Santhiya Whoaa !!. This is a great news. Thank you for sharing it with us. Yes, you may reduce the dosage to 2 cups. Or you may even try skipping it for a while, just to check if they occur again.
Once you are sure that the itching has not started again, ten you may slowly try yourself exposing into the sun.
Now, you need to do a bit of experimentation on your own. Yes, the dosage may be reduced even to one cup and you may even stop the usage for a while.

Since your mother has a fluctuating Creatinine reading, so I would advise that you may give her Dandelion.Its soup can be given if the level increases. For Kidney care, these are the herbs--
Land Caltrops-- One capsule, every day for one month.
Punarnava in the water extract form : 10 drops daily.
Varuna, buy the tincture from a homeopathic store, 5 drops added to a glass of water for a month, daily.
Its homeopathic name is Crateava Nurvala.
These herbs are a magic wand for any disorder related to Kidneys.

I hae been suffering from Urticaria due to which my face starts swelling and also too much itching on hands, knees, elbows and back (all over) followed by the bumps.

Yes,Arif. You can start Stinging Nettle. Take it either in the form of tincture or in the tea.
Try this herb for 15 days. Take bath with Neem water only. I will also suggest that you drink Bitter Gourd juice for a week. 100 ml juice everyday. This will help in the blood purification.

Stinging nettle is known to stimulate milk production and increase the supply of breast milk in nursing mothers. You may take it in the form of tea. Drink one cup everyday after child birth.
Also, if you have low blood sugar then avoid taking this herb.
I would suggest you to take this herb only if you are suffering from a problem. There are no such side effects on the baby unless the limited dosage is taken.

Thanku chilman,
I had ordered a mother tincture from a shop. But by mistake i have got urtica urena MT, instead of urtica dioica MT. Will this work for my urticaria ? Or shud i get urtica dioica only? Thanku

i had a bacteria infection before which i was having burning pain in my penis and in the base of my penis and also having a yellowish colour urine, but i got all treated(contacted through sex).

after some months,
i am having burning pain on my prostate, it seems as if my scrotum is hot all the inside not outside especially while lying down or sitting down. i did the computer check, so i was told am having prostate problem ( instead of 2.48, am having 2.22) . i feel very relieved after taking scent leaf(by boiling) but i know it is not gone completely. i feel slow in starting urine. i have ordered for both stinging nettle and saw palmetto for my treatment. please advise me on how to use it. i am just 31 years of age.

You may drink Stinging Nettle tea, one cup daily for 20 days. Eat one capsule of Saw Palmetto daily. Observe the symptoms and adjust the dosage accordingly.
Also buy pumpkin seed oil capsules, and have one daily.

Your mother can try Land Caltrops Capsules, one daily for a month. give her Drumstick soup, one bowl daily. Punarnava is another very effective herb for you, take water extract form, 10 drops daily.
