About the Herbs in Animals Apawthecary Nettle

Nettle leaf has been used since ancient times. The Greek physicians Dioscorides and Galen used Nettle leaf to support respiratory, urinary and reproductive health. By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Eclectic physicians used this highly nutritious herb as an astringent and digestive aid and to support healthy skin. Although several studies have investigated the effects of Nettle and its constituents, the mechanism of action of Nettle leaf is still unknown. In vitro and ex vivo studies indicate that Nettle leaf extract inhibits prostaglandin and leukotriene synthesis and suppresses cytokine production. These substances are yet other inflammatory responses of the immune system; Nettle appears to help keep them within a healthy range.

Herbal Protocol
Herbal products are not meant to be used every day as food. It is best to give your animal breaks to make sure their body does not adapt to the herbs, making them less effective, and to allow your animal's body to eliminate constituents contained in the herbs so they do not build up to undesirable levels within the body. The following examples pertain to using herbs prophylactically, meaning as a preventative, or for chronic conditions. When using herbs for an acute condition, such as a short term illness, herbs may be used daily, depending on the herb, for one to three weeks, as long as no undesirable symptoms are displayed. There are different schools of thought on how to best use herbs longer term.

Five days on, two days off
This method is fairly obvious, take the herb for five days and then rest for two and repeat.

Periodic resting
If an extract is to be used for more than one week then take six days on and one day off. If an extract is used for more than six weeks then take six weeks on and one week off with a day off each week. If an extract is to be used for more than six months then take six months on and one month off with a day off each week.
