Today I was with Bernhard (a student of our Wudang Academy) in the Austrian Mountains. Dandelion is part of traditional Daoist medicine, and we also found the very healthy Stinging Nettle.

Dandelion is excellent for the liver and is used for Daoist detoxing diet. If you harvest in autumn, it can also help against diabetes and can prevent further problems by keeping the blood sugar low. If there is an internal swelling, then Dandelion can promote the healing capabilities.

Stinging Nettle root is an excellent medicine for baldness, urinary and prostate problems. Drinking the leaves can lower blood pressure and help to promote inner balance.

Let me know if you have experience with this two herbs! [smile]

As you can see the roots and leaves are now in the drying process, and later we can have some very nice tea! [smile]

Hello, Mishti!
Dry them in the sun - or if it's too rainy and no sun in your country - put them in the oven at a very low temperature.
When finished drink them as a tea, twice a day.

Hi!

Just came home from my first stinging nettle excursion. Do you wash the leaves before you dry them?
