2. Black Walnut Nuts & Hull

The nuts and green hulls of black walnut (Juglans nigra) possess the powerful ability to cleanse your blood and your intestines. Black walnut hull is effective in helping with fungal infections. The juice from the green hulls is the part that is used to kill parasites. Make sure to only use green hulls.

How to use it? You can buy black walnut nuts and hull as a tincture and use it internally as directed. It is often found as an ingredient in internal cleansing products.

3. Wormwood

Wormwood also possesses strong antimicrobial properties and can be useful for other infections besides parasites.

How to use it? Besides being found in many internal cleansing products, you can make tea out of wormwood. Just add 0.5 – 1 tsp to hot water and you have a cleansing tea ready.

4. Cloves

Clove essential oil dissolves the eggs found in your intestines left behind by worms. It may be the only herb that destroys almost all parasite eggs. It is incredibly powerful when used in conjunction with black walnut and wormwood because the trio breaks the parasite’s life-cycle. Clove is antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal, hence how incredibly powerful it can be.

How to use it? Cloves are used to flavor many dishes and baked goods from relishes, pies, pickles, Indian dishes, teas, and cider.

5. Thyme

Thyme is one of the most wonderful herbs for stimulating the thymus, a major gland of your immune system. Thyme stimulates your body’s natural defenses. Thyme oil cannot only eliminate the growth of many parasites, but it can also kill them in the intestinal tract.

How to use it? You can use thyme in practically any dish you’d like along with marjoram, rosemary, oregano, and other spices. You may also just use it dry or fresh.

6. Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is incredibly powerful and one of the most effective herbs you can use against all kinds of problems, including parasites. It is infused with extremely high levels of free radical-crushing antioxidants. Oregano oil is also antiparasitic, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal, making it a powerful yet protective killer that can reset the microbial environment in your intestines.

How to use it? You can use oregano oil as a tincture, tea, or as an essential oil. Make sure you get good quality food-grade oils from a reliable source. It is also an ingredient in many cleaning products.

7. Chinese Goldthread
