Debbie Osborne's Animal Worming Recipe


by Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries

March 2003

Debbie Osborne told me of a natural parasitic that she uses with both her goats and horses.

Ingredients

She says, “As a rule of thumb, I use 1 cup of the powdered herbs to 2 cups of the cut herbs, except for the cloves and the D.E.” The most crucial ingredients in the recipe are marked by an asterisk (*).

Directions

Sprinkle the mixture on their feed in the morning and evening for 7 days straight. A mature goat gets about 1 tablespoon in the morning and evening. A mature pony gets about 1/4 cup in the morning and evening. A mature horse gets about 3/4 cup in the morning and evening. Use slightly smaller amounts for offspring.

This recipe can be used with other animals. Just use your judgment on adjusting the amounts of the daily dosages according to the animal's body weight.

Reader Feedback

"Just a quick message to say that I love your site and your products. I am a naturopathic vet in training and read your animal worming recipe with interest (it is very similar to one I use myself) but thought that you might add a note for horse owners. Black walnut hulls can contain a fungus which is deadly to horses, so it isn't always advisable to feed it to them, or pasture them under black walnut trees for that matter. If the infection is caught early enough it is sometimes treatable, sometimes not.

"It should be noted that black walnut does not always contain this fungus. It just depends and there is no good way to tell if it does or doesn't. Everything else in the recipe is perfectly safe for horses. The dangers of the fungus apply ONLY to horses. The recipe in its enitirety is perfectly safe for other animals. Thanks so much for all your great work." Anna

Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
