Eat Leafy Greens!
A study of 8000 people found a strong connection between low blood levels of folate and allergies. Those who ate the most leafy greens – such as kale, collards, spinach and beet greens, were the least likely to have allergies, wheezing and difficulty breathing.

Folate is the natural form of folic acid, the B vitamin. Folate is found in all leafy greens, such as dandelion,  amaranth, and stinging nettle, are especially rich in folate. Perhaps this is why nettle has such relieving allergic symptoms and even eliminating allergies.

Nettle also promotes sound sleep, increases energy without increasing blood sugar, so sleep is deeper and more refreshing. With nettle women wake less often and feel more rested in the morning. 
 Nettle is a rich storehouse of needed nutrients. Its protein, vitamins, minerals, and health-promoting phytochemicals recharge exhausted adrenals, rebuild flagging kidneys, and restore flexibility to the blood vessels. 
Nettle combats inflammation with iron phosphate, feeds the brain and nerves with potassium phosphate, and prevents blood clots with potassium chloride.
Nettle leaf is known to strengthen the intestines and lungs too. It is a safe diuretic and does not disturb electrolyte balance while relieving edema.  Nettle infusion is the most effective form; the dose is 4-12 cups a week.
