Have you ever gone for a walk in the woods and touched a plant only to get an extreme itching, burning sensation. It can be quite painful. Congratulations, you have come into contact with Urtica dioica or otherwise known as Stinging Nettle. Growing up, we always called it Itch Weed. It looks innocent enough, but it has lots of little stinging hairs, that contain formic acid, histamine, acetylcholine, and serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) that will cause this stinging and burning sensation. This sensation can last up to 24 hours, depending upon the sensitivity of the person. This plant can be found all across the United States. If left unchecked, the plant spreads by seeds and by its rhizome roots and can grow into rather large patches.

Water can come in different forms. Herbal and leaf teas are healthy, count as water and provide some wonderful nutrients. Juice, coffee and alcohol do not because sugar, caffeine and alcohol dehydrate the body. If you like the fizz of soda, try seltzer water.
