      yes i heard about that as well sounds a bit painful to me.

      i love social history so have read lots of articles on how they used to treat illness and do house hold chores , it was legal to grow cannibus for medical use for quite some time it was used a lot thru the war as pain relief .

    Back in the olden days Fibro was known as rheumatism, then name changed to fibroitis and in recent times changed to Fibro.

      it works by beating the area with nettles cause the area to go numb after so many stings ,so capsuals wouldnt work .in the same way.

      You could make nettle soup and nettle tea.

      I used to go to a herbalist some years ago and asked her how vegetarians could take capsules made from gelatine and with mad cow disease around at the time. She blanched and said that she had never thought of that. Later she advertised that her capsules were Vegan.

      However Tina,

      I thought that consuming the nettle purifies the blood.  Nettle tea may help in the same way.  But then, what will that do for reumatism?  I don't know.

      A friend in America used to rub peanut oil into his mothers joints. Now he rubs it into his own.

      Yes, I've used peanut oil on my knee and also olive oil....and coconut oil....our joints need oils. Even ingesting a tsp of olive oil and or coconut oil daily. I've been out of peanut oil and peanuts can be fungal so watch my consumption of peanuts.

      We need oils in our bodies and too many cut back on oils and consume too much carbs and sugars...those are worst for our joints.

      Denise, I've followed the weston a price group for many years, we had a chapter in santa monica and I went to the monthly meetings...the leader of the group would bring in tubs of organic CO and sell it to folks who brought their own glass jars....the price foundation is huge in the oils research field and they promote CO as it can help so much, thyroid for one too.

      Price folks are NOT into the cholesterol fear that abounds....you can find WAP links and read the history of this organization. J

      Speaking of dementia, a friend who deals with CFS/ME sent me info on the benzos and alzheimers connection....she was taking a low doese for sleep, but got off it.
