fine mater to explore netles for healthy food, but pleas keep attention:In
our country and all slovenian countries people are using netles by
provebs.One proveb is: netles eat before 18th of may /on 50gradus north,when
weather was normal/. It was discovered, that this proveb is corect, because
of  netles, when there is more of sunshine create in it more nitrogenes.This
nitrogenes are occuring also when you not eat all at once, give meal to
rewfredgarator to temperature only slowly above 0Gr.C. Than later when you
heat meal again, there occures a lot of nitrogens,which cause lethargy,and
even helps cancer to grow.Antidot against it should be vitamin C.  Here
people are used to grow their own poultry and animals. People boil netles
for them,but when they boil too much of it and leave it for later time, than
,usualy in spring,animals are lethargic and just poisoned by nitrates. So,
boil it and eat, but not leave it for next days,or not to heat it again.I am
not chemic,so maybe I am doing some mistake, but not big one. Veterinary
doctores warn in magazines to this point.  wishing good apetite , Jan,Czech

Doc, The best remedy for poison ivy by far is aloe vera. If you can rub it
on the skin at the red itchy stage before it breaks into blister, it simply
stops the reaction and the skin does not blister.  It's really very good.

I have someone close who is terribly allergic and we have experimented it
many times. It takes much longer to heal if the skin is allowed  to reach
blister and scab stages, but in that case aloe vera still helps relieve
itchiness and is said to accelerate the process of healing. But, it stops
the reaction entirely, when applied early enough, and that's when you get
the best benefit from using it. As soon as you have a itchiness, don't
hesitate apply aloe vera, it's good for the skin anyway. It's also good to
relieve itchiness from black flies, mosquitoes, even helps with bee stings.

You can get poison ivy indirectly from clothes or anything else that has
been exposed, hence the belief in the old days that once caught, poison ivy
would reoccur for seven years...! I guess some people didn't wash their
outdoors clothes too often...!
