| Urtica urens is a remedy that made Dr. Compton Burnett famous a hundred years ago. With his "secret potion" this English homeopath cured so many cases of gout that he was known all over Europe as "Dr. Gout" After his death, his family divulged the contents of his secret formula-consisting primarily of this one simple homeopathic remedy!
Even today, Urtica urens is capable of helping to ward off a severe acute attack of gout. Another great indication is urticaria (hives), particularly after eating seafood or cheese. The symptoms are stinging, burning and severe itching, all of which are quickly alleviated by Urtica urens. It is also useful for first degree burns, for stings from jellyfish and bees, and for rashes caused by the stinging nettle plant itself.
