I have been trying to write this article for a while, but I would get so grossed out with my research that I put it off. Here it is—the PG-rated version! Did you know it is estimated that more than 85 percent of the world’s population have some kind of parasite living inside their bodies?

You can get parasites from people, animals, mosquitoes, ticks, the air you breathe, food, and your drinking water. You can get the disgusting little creatures almost anywhere, at any time. They need you to survive and multiply. Are you yucked out yet?

So what is a parasite? It is an organism that lives on or in another organism (a person, an animal, etc.) from which it obtains nutrients to live, causing harm in the process.

Parasites have been linked to almost every illness. However, just because you have parasites does not mean that you are sick. Many people have parasites and never know. When your body has a healthy, strong, immune system, it can deal with most parasites. However, if you have poor circulation, your pH is off-balance, your organs and tissues lack oxygen, or your immune system crashes, it creates favorable conditions for the invasion and multiplication of parasites. Parasites migrate to the areas of the body where it is not functioning optimally. Often people get a disease, crashing their immune system, thus making their body a perfect home for parasites. This makes the disease worse.

There are over 100 different types of parasitic worms that can live in the human body. They range from microscopic in size to many feet long. Female worms can release 3,000 to 200,000 eggs per day depending on their type. Parasites’ waste makes your body very toxic. People with parasites can become malnourished and weak because parasites secrete toxins and steal vital mineral nutrients and amino acids needed for digestion and a healthy body. People often end up with issues such as viruses, fungal and bacterial infections, anemia, bloating, fatigue or hunger, allergies, asthma, gas, digestive disorders, nervousness, skin rashes, foggy brains, aches and pains, chemical and metal poisoning, and much more.

Most doctors are not trained to recognize the symptoms of parasitic infections—and even when they do, the medicine they give you to kill the worms is very toxic to you.

But there is good news! God gave us three herbs that kill over one hundred different parasites: green Black Walnut hull (Black Walnut hull that is still green when harvested and processed,) fresh ground clove powder, and wormwood. These three herbs must be used together to kill the worms and eggs all at once.

Parasitic infections can cause physical trauma by burrowing into the intestines, the circulatory system, the liver, the lungs­­—anywhere in the body. Worms can drill holes in your organs as they destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated. A parasite cleanse is required if your body is overburdened with other toxins.

Do you have parasites?

You may have parasites if you have stomach pain, indigestion, ulcers, constipation, Parkinson’s disease, joint or muscle pain, food or environmental allergies, dermatitis, itching, psoriasis, eczema, hives, swelling and rashes, acne, anemia, fatigue or drowsiness after meals, or frequent infections in the lungs, sinuses, vagina, bladder or any mucous membrane. Signs that a child may be infected with parasites include blisters on the inside of the lower lip, frequent wiping of the nose, restlessness and grinding of the teeth at night, twitching eyelids, dark circles under the eyes, hyperactivity, bed wetting, headaches, sensitivity to light, and rectal or nasal bleeding.

How do you kill your parasites?

There are many studies with various conclusions as to the herbs you should take and the conditions of the treatment. So you need to do your own research and decide what you want to take, but this is what I do:

Green Black Walnut Tincture

First day: I take 1 drop of black walnut tincture four times in a beverage every 4 hours through the day on an empty stomach.

Second day: I take 2 drops of black walnut tincture four times in a beverage every 4 hours through the day on an empty stomach.

Third day: I take 3 drops of black walnut tincture four times in a beverage every 4 hours through the day on an empty stomach.

I keep increasing the amount until I have taken 14 drops four times a day. I do this for 14 days and then take 5 days off, then 14 days on, and continue for three months.

If fresh walnut hulls are not in season and I need to do a cleanse, I take Green Black Walnut Hull powder capsules. If you have them fresh it is always best, but, when in need, take what you can get.

Green Black Walnut capsules (size 00)

First day: I take 1 capsule twice a day on an empty stomach.

Second day: I take 2 capsules twice a day on an empty stomach.

Third day: I take 2 capsules three times a day on an empty stomach.

Then I continue 2 capsules three times a day on an empty stomach for the remainder of three months.

Wormwood capsules (size 00)

First day: I take 2 capsules 20 minutes before I eat, every meal.

Second day: I take 4 capsules 20 minutes before I eat.

Third day: I take 6 capsules 20 minutes before I eat.

Fourth day: I take 8 capsules 20 minutes before I eat.

Fifth day: I take 10 capsules 20 minutes before I eat.

Sixth day: I take 12 capsules 20 minutes before I eat.

Seventh day: I take 14 capsules 20 minutes before I eat.

I do this 14 days on, then 5 days off, then 14 days on, then I just do 14 capsules twice a week for the remainder of three months.

Cloves capsules (size 00)

First day: I take 1 capsule 3 times a day.

Second day: I take 2 capsules 3 times a day, 20 minutes before I eat.

Third day: I take 3 capsules 3 times a day, 20 minutes before I eat.

I do this 14 days on, then 5 days off, then 14 days on, then just do 3 capsules once a day for the remainder of three months.

It can be difficult to get a child to take an herbal concoction that tastes bad, and most of them do. Wormwood is one terrible-tasting herb. You cannot expect your kids to take it by itself. I like to mix half maple syrup and half herb. That helps with the taste. You can also give them a reward when they take it. I wrapped little things up and gave them to my son for the first ten times of taking herbal concoctions. This made him look at them as “good things”. Even though it tastes bad, and he no longer gets presents for taking them, he still takes them with a smile! For children 40 to 65 pounds, I do one-fourth the amount of an adult dose, and only do 14 days on, 7 days off, then 14 days on, and that is all.

For children 65 to 90 pounds, I do one-third the amount of an adult dose, and only do 14 days on, 7 days off, then 14 days, and then I cease. I cannot tell you what you should do regarding your children. Any herb can be harmful in some circumstances so I am not prescribing a cure or treatment. I am not a doctor. I am just giving you some ideas for your own research. Make sure you are sufficiently knowledgeable and/or consult an expert before giving or taking herbs that can be toxic.
