Turns out Nettle CAN help in the case of migraine.
My daughter had a migraine this week. She tried a couple of things but nothing was helping.
Finally, I suggested nettle tincture. She took one dose (one dropperful) and then 15 minutes later another dropperful. It didn't totally eliminate her headache but made it much more tolerable.
She hasn't taken nettle daily for quite some time, so I don't think it was a blood purifying effect as when daily use seemed to eliminate migraines.
I have noticed with my children that they have "go to" remedies. One responds well to coconut oil. I give it to him for everything.
This daughter responds well to nettle.
So, I think the moral of the story is, when nothing is working for what ails you, consider what remedies your body has responded well to for ailments in the past.

My family seems to have a predisposition to migraine headaches. My husband has never had a traditional migraine but does get the aura. Several of our children have experienced the same thing, Others have experienced full blown migraines on a regular basis, including myself.
My daughter had regular migraines and several other health problems. After taking nettle leaf and kefir almost daily for a year, her health was drastically improved. Since that time her migraines are much less frequent. (She took one capsule of nettle a couple of times a day for about a year.)
I don't think nettle will cure a headache (but I suppose I wouldn't put it past nettle! ) But for a long term blood purifying solution, I think nettle should be considered!
