I decided to start again after reading a fantastic, if not slightly hippy, book about the menopause. Nettle infusions are recommended in this book to help various menopausal symptoms. And as a peri-menopausal woman who is nearing 50 (gulp!), I thought it would be a good to get ahead of the game and start drinking it again.
Nettles are well known for being nutrient dense and full of vitamins and minerals. And according to Susan S Weed author of New Menopausal Years; Alternative Approaches for Women 30-90 Nettles are believed to help;
I make my infusions mixed with peppermint tea. It is delicious drunk cold from the fridge or hot, depending on what you fancy.
Unlike Susun S Weed, I am not a herbalist so if you are thinking of trying nettle infusions then please discuss this with a qualified herbalist or naturopath to see if they are suitable for you.
