    Nettle, as I discussed in the show, is very helpful for building blood in the liver and for building blood quality. It is often used for the same things as Dong Quai, however, nettle is a better fit for someone who is in a very moist climate or who has what the Chinese would call “moist” conditions, which are associated with fluid retention, inflammation, infection and other problems. For a dry person or people in a very dry climate, nettle is less appropriate and can actually cause dry skin conditions and discomfort and usually this stops the person using it from continuing. It is not really harmful, but is a drying herb.

    Drying herbs may also interfere with milk production for lactating women, though nettle can also increase the quality of milk in the right person.

    When facing a really moist climate or person, I would choose nettle over dong quai, or I might pair them.

    It is very hard to follow due to your constant interrupting yourself before concluding an idea. I missed whether nettle would be good for me or dry me out too much.
