Excerpts from Herbal Antibiotics

Though the Wormwood herb root is rarely used for medicine, it is extremely powerful, especially for hot, sore infections of the throat and lungs. Some herbalists do not recommend the use of this herb because of its thujone content. Millennia of traditional use support its continued place in the herbal dispensatory.


Wormwood Herb is excellent to expel intestinal worms, stimulate the appetite and liver, and also the uterus. Two of its phytochemicals stimulate digestion. Compresses soaked in wormwood tea are recommended for irritations, bruises, and sprains.


A word of warning

  • Avoid using it internally during pregnancy.
  • Wormwood herb is a very potent. Use caution when taking it internally.
  • Some people have sensitivities to Wormwood. If you experience any negative symptoms, stop taking immediately.

Detox while pregnant
by Jessie on Feb 11, 2014

I'm wondering what your suggestions would be for detoxification or parasite cleanse if you are pregnant or nursing? I have been pregnant or nursing for the last 5 years and am 6mos. pregnant now. Thank you.

    Hello,
    We always recommend not doing any kind of detox or cleanse when you are pregnant or nursing because it stirs up toxins in your body and may transfer those to your baby as well. It is best to wait to do the detoxes until you are not pregnant or nursing. Thanks!

worm wood
by randi on Feb 5, 2014

I watched your YouTube segment on parasite cleansing and really found it helpful! I do have a question though.... you showed how to capsule the worm wood and said that you place some on a soon with honey for your son, my question is how many capsules to you recommend for it to be effective for parasite cleanse? Also how much for a child like with the honey on a spoon , to be effective? I have seen your segment on dosing and starting low etc but with it possibly being harmful i wanted your advice. Also i want it to be EFFECTIVE, if we don't even realize what all parasites we have, its hard to start low and move up as i don't know what an effective dose is, like with capsules or honey for kids on a teaspoon. Thanks a bunches

    For children 40 to 65 LB, I do 1/4 the amount of an adult dose, and only do 14 days on, 7 day off, then 14 days, and then that is all.

    For children 65 to 90 LB, I do 1/3 the amount of an adult dose, and only do 14 days on, 7 day off, then 14 days, and then that is all.

    I would recommend trying it in honey depending on how old they are, but if they can get it down in capsules, that is the best way to go to avoid the flavor. Thanks!

Bitter!!

Any advice on killing the bitter flavor? I have tried it with the peppermint but it's still very bitter!

    Hello, If you are concerned with taste I would recommend taking the Wormwood powder in capsules. Thanks!

Wormwood Usage
by Peggy Perales on Aug 31, 2013

My family is very active and we use wormwood externally, as a poultice, for injuries/sprains. Soak some of the leaves in hot water until soft; place leaves on skin/injury and wrap with hot,moist towel. Leave for 20 min or so. Repeat every 3-4 hours. You will be surprised at how fast you heal. I was able to heal hyperextended elbows in a day, sore backs, pulled muscles etc. much faster. Just remember- your body absorbs the medicinal properties so don't use if pregnant, nursing, etc.

Topical OK during pregnancy?
by Anonymous on May 12, 2013

Is topical use of this OK during pregnancy? I see it is in the Vinegar of Thieves, which is useful as a bug spray. I know internally it is not OK to use when pregnant, but, again, what about topically? I just love this store. Thank you so much for having it!

    Re: Topical OK during pregnancy?

    From what I have read, not enough is known about the safety of applying wormwood directly to the skin and may be best to avoid topical use. I would recommend asking your midwife or Dr. before using.

What are the reccomended dosages?
by Scott on May 4, 2013

I've been trying to research what the reccomended dosages are for wormwood and not having much luck. I want to know, how much is too much? Are there any links someone might be able to reccomend? I was thinking about using about a teaspoon (or less?) of it in a baked cake after milling it in a spice mill.

    Re: What are the reccomended dosages?
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 9, 2013

    In the The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook by James A. Duke, Ph. D., dosage options are listed as follows: One-quarter to 1/2 teaspoon of a liquid extract daily, 1 teaspoon of the dried herb in a cup of hot water up to three times a day before or after meals, or 10 -20 drops of wormwood tincture stirred into a glass of water three times a day before meals. I would recommend the above mentioned book for dosage options on many different herbs!

nursing

    No, it is not recommended to use while nursing.

Wormwood
by Anonymous on May 11, 2010

This is an amazing herb for its vermifuge, anti-bacterial, sedative, dymennorhea calming, and digestive tonic properties. In clinical trails, it even shows promise for Crohn's disease. This is the flavoring used in absinthe liquor.

However, it is a powerful herb and must be used according to recommended dosages. It contains a toxic chemical called Thujone, and should not be used for longer than 4 weeks unless under doctor supervision. Must never be used by children, pregnant women, and those with kidney or liver disease.
