Speaker: Deborah Frances, ND. Plants such as wormwood, quassia and black walnut can be highly efficacious in clearing intestinal parasites, even when pharmaceuticals such as metronidazole and ivermectin fail to eradicate infestation. Milder herbs like garlic, pumpkin seed and garden sage can act as supportive and preventive agents. Pulsed dosing of herbs is essential to address encysted forms of parasites. Failure in treating conditions such as giardia, pinworms and even tapeworm with plant medicines is often more related to underdosing than it is to the power of plants. We delve into the plants, dosing strategies and other recommendations for effective treatment.
