Wormwood is a widely used natural substance by patients who are attempting to treat parasite infection. Some practitioners recommend combining wormwood with cloves and green or black walnut hulls.

There are many anecdotal reports from patients who feel that use of too high of a starting dose of wormwood and also combination of wormwood with cloves and walnut significantly worsened their clinical symptoms. Although there is virtually no scientific data published to support this, this clinical scenario is ascribed to “parasite die off releasing mercury.”

Virtually all practitioners recommend that use of this herb be used only when patient is under the care of a physician.
