Dried nettle for hypothyroidism.

Nettle, also known as Urtica Dioica, is a great herb for curing many thyroid problems including both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. It is known that nettle can correct any type of thyroid imbalance. It is very healthy containing Vitamin A, B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, and Iodine[1].

  • Add 1 cup of dried nettle herb to 2 cups of boiling water.
  • Let the mixture boil for 2 minutes, strain, and drink the tea.

  • I’m a certified herbalist and i’ve never seen nettle used specifically for thyroid issues. While its great nutritive plant and can bring forth many health amelioration, i feel it’s a lie to pretend it would singlehandedly cure thyroid issues. Please dont spread info on plants unless you know the topic. There are plenty of herbalists to consult to acertain your articles.

    Also if you have proof of this i would love to read a case study or some scientific evidence on the topic.

    • Amen to that! It so scary that people just throw out this type of information with nothing that has been peer reviewed, an experiment to prove a hypothesis correctly making it theory, or anything else for that matter. This is serious business when you talking about cures for illnesses dealing with the thyroid. Thank you for saying that.

    • I understand you are an herbalist and from what you are saying you know something about this plant. If that’s is the case what have you seen it used for? I’m just curious because you are right people post stuff without even checking the information for all I know this could be poisonous

    • I trust herbs over prescription medication any day. There are far more prescription medications that kill every day of the week. The government needs to quit lying to us and telling us that these prescription medications are good when they aren’t worth a crap…they kill people everyday and that’s a proven fact.

      • I am in total agreement with you on this. My husband suffers from hypothyroidism and one thing we have been using that has been helping him is pineapples. He is always tired because of his hypothyroidism and he has noticed a tremendous change in his energy levels after eating or drinking pineapple juice. We will also be trying nettle leaf tea and oil.

    • Hello, is there anything that can help my Hypothyroidism? For 9 years I was Hyperthyroid and now I’m Hypo and from 150lbs to 260lbs I’m taking 125 MG of synthyroid now and nothing changing….please help

  • Can you be specific botanically which plant. I think i have lots of them growing and have specifically weeding them, but before i used them i would like to be sure

  • While it is nice to see more people looking to herbs I have to agree with Annie. As an herbalist as well I have never seen it used as a “permanent cure” for thyroid. There are cases where nettles are used to treat allergies causing rhinitis, asthma, earaches, and even chronic conditions such as bronchitis and emphysema (According to UMN). Or with Women’s Health PCOS, Menopause, HRT Support, and Osteoporosis (According to Fredonia) because they are a nutritive.

    As for the second recipe you listed, that would be an infusion not an oil. An infusion is a large amount of herb brewed for a long time. Typically, one ounce by weight (about a cup by volume) of dried herb is placed in a quart jar which is then filled to the top with boiling water, tightly lidded and allowed to steep for 4-10 hours.

  • I have never heard it used for thyroid, but have for kidneys & bladder. You need to be careful with this herb though. Always read up on something before just trying, especially herbal remedies. Even homepathic can be dangerous if not used correctly.

  • My Dad has an illness, Cortico-Basal Degeneration (CBD); which is very similar to Parkinson’s–Is there something of a herbal nature you might recommend, Doctor?

    Aug 14, 2017 – Today, nettle root is used to treat urinary problems associated with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia), urinary tract infections and hay fever. Nettle leaf, meanwhile, is most commonly used to treat pain, osteoarthritis, allergies and hay fever.

    • My endocrinologist had me in crease my iodine .And I have graves disease ( hyper thyroid ) Everybody is different ask your doctor .

  • After reading your article I purchased some stinging nettle and it has helped me greatly. My thyroid issues have been helped greatly. I thank you so much for your info. I follow your blogs.

  • I’ve used this herb for detox. Really helped and I felt better. Not sure if it was helping my thyroid as I was feeling better.
    The medical medium recommended Nettle leaf on his podcast and has a book in thyroid that has just been released. Might have got the info there.
