Health Benefits Of Stinging Nettle

Stinging Nettle is a herb that many people are aware of even if natural medicines don’t interest them at all – it’s one of the easiest plants to identify simply because brushing against it with bare skin can result in an irritating rash! This is because the stems and the undersides of the leaves are covered with tiny needle-like hairs that contain formic acid which results in contact-dermatitis when they come into contact with the skin. It burns but the rash usually subsides quite quickly. This has led modern people to view stinging nettle as little more than an irritating nuisance that spreads rapidly and needs eliminating! The truth is that it’s a potent nutritive substance with an array of incredible health benefits.

Not an ideal situation to be in if we’re honest…

Why Meditation Doesn’t Work

Medicine Buddha Salt Lamp

So often I hear people say “I can’t meditate”. This opinion seems to be increasing in popularity – the idea that some people can meditate whereas others are somehow genetically incapable of meditating. Is it really something innate, or perhaps an obvious consequence of the current age we live in? The days and nights blur together as they spin past at lightning speed, crammed full of ‘important’ multitasking, to-do lists and documenting all of it on social media. Any free time is spent distracting ourselves from ourselves, ensuring that the mind is constantly preoccupied and never available for even a moment to come to terms with itself. Is it true that some of us cannot meditate, or that the design of this pointlessly over-busy lifestyle simply doesn’t allow space for it?
