Artemisia annua l (Chinese herb) is used to combat parasites (especially giardiasis) often in conjunction with other herbs such as vitamin c, Black-Walnut hulls, olive leaf, clove, grapefruit seed.
Avocado (skin) has been used as an antibiotic, as a way of ridding the intestinal tract of parasites, and as a remedy for dysentery.

Black Walnut hulls may be taken as a supplement or salve [or tincture (for pets)] to combat parasitic worms.
(One such salve is made by Wise Ways Herbals, Worthington, Massachusetts, USA. Try applying on one's toes when wearing sandals, especially if no other remedy will alleviate toe pain. Their salve contains tea tree oil, which may also help with toe maladies.)
As a tincture it may be added to pet's drinking water.
Bromelain enzyme from pineapple cores help eliminate tapeworms. Turmeric and cloves are other spices that can help fight parasites. Wormwood (Artemesia annua) tea is often used for pinworms and roundworms and is especially effective against giardia. American wormseed (different from Wormwood ) is a traditional herbal remedy in the tropics for expelling roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms, especially useful for children. Wormseed tea is often preferable to concentrated wormseed oil. Pumpkin seeds (Curcubita pepo) have been shown to immobilize and help expel intestinal worms (tapeworms and roundworms) and other parasites. Grapefruit seed may help retard viruses, bacteria, protozoa, yeasts (candida), and parasites (giardia)..

Cloves - Freshly ground (organic) cloves are effective against several parasites and worms. One can used as a tea or add to fruit juices. Grind your own cloves to ensure that they contain the active ingredient. Hulda Clark says that Wormwood and Black-Walnut hulls are effective against adult and maturing worms, but only cloves are effective against their eggs. WARNING - The majority of grocery store herbs are processed/irradiated and contain little of their original value.

Black Walnut Hulls (from the Black-Walnut tree), Wormwood (from the Artemisia shrub), plus Common Cloves (from the clove tree) must be used together.

Dr Clark always finds the Eurytrema pancreatic fluke in the pancreas of every EBV (Epstein Barre Virus) patient.
After eradication, an EBV carrying a Eurythrema fluke can reinfect if one drinks a wood alcohol beverage.

Goldenseal should not be used by people with high blood pressure as it may increase nervousness.) Other recommended anti-parasitic fresh or dried herbs = Garlic (Allium sativa) for Ascaris (roundworm), Giardia lamblia, Trypanosoma, Plasmodium, and Leishmania; juice of unripe hulls of black walnut for ringworm, athlete's foot, parasites and fungal infections; and wormwood (Artemesia annua) for intestinal parasites (Ascaris lumbricoides, Plasmodium, Schistosoma mansoni, and Giardia).

Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) - There are 180 herbs in the genus Artemisia. These herbs are typically bitter in taste and include
1) Sweet Annie (Artemisia annua) to fight malaria and intestinal amoebas; 2) Common Wormword (Artemisia absinthium) (native to Europe, Asia, Africa) to treat intestinal worms. [Wormwood can be an ingredient in liquor (absinthe, vermouth, wines)]; 3) and Wormseed, Levant (Artemisia cina) an English plant [to treat children for roundworms including pinworms (aka threadworms)] is NOT effective for tapeworms. The Wormseed, American (Chenopodium anthelminticum) is not a member of the Artemisia genus but is an anthelminitic (expels worms); its oil can be used to treat hookworms in children.

Saint Antony
"58. There was also a maiden from Busiris Tripolitana, who had a terrible and very hideous disorder. For the runnings of her eyes, nose, and ears fell to the ground and immediately became worms. She was paralyzed also and squinted. Her parents having heard of monks going to Antony, and believing on the Lord who healed [7] the woman with the issue of blood, asked to be allowed, together with their daughter, to journey with them. And when they suffered them, the parents together with the girl, remained outside the mountain with Paphnutius, the confessor and monk; but the monks went in to Antony. And when they only wished to tell about the damsel, he anticipated them, and detailed both the sufferings of the child and how she journeyed with them. Then when they asked that she should be admitted, Antony did not allow it, but said, 'Go, and if she be not dead, you will find her healed: for the accomplishment of this is not mine, that she should come to me, wretched man that I am, but her healing is the work of the Saviour, who in every place sheweth His pity to them that call upon Him. Wherefore the Lord hath inclined to her as she prayed, and His loving-kindness hath declared to me that He will heal the child where she now is.' So the wonder took place; and going out they found the parents rejoicing and the girl whole."

Retail vendor with good information -

A 3 day fast of only raw pineapples (plus pure water) helps one to get rid of parasites. Apple cider vinegar (perhaps in salads) and cranberry juice will help to lower the high alkaline PH that parasites love. Add cloves to your daily meals. Rinse/soak ALL foods with hydrogen peroxide and water.
Ringworm is a fungus not a worm.
The Mountaineers Mountaineering First Aid Section Diarrhea and Giardia "Giardiasis is the #1 parasite disease in the US and it affects some 10-20% of the world's population." It is transmitted by contaminated water, feces, animals wild and tame, and individuals. Bury all waste away from streams. Wash hands before preparing food. In addition to drugs and specific vitamin supplements taken to treat oneself after being affected, one can be proactive and treat water in advance. Filter (Katadyn and First Need filters are 99.9% effective) and boil water. Treat boiled (or distilled) water with chlorine bleach or povidone Iodine (iodine disinfectant is 99.9% effective after 8 hrs), or commercial disinfectant tablets (90% effective after 30 minutes).

Walter, Norman W Tune Your Mind and Body - Become Younger Chapter 20 Constipation Norwalk Press
"A young woman in her lat 20's...had suffered epileptic seizures regularly every month, since her menstrual periods began when she was about 13." X rays indicated worms. Sure enough, after 5 weeks of almost daily colonics, her seizures left and never returned. Her subsequent diet consists of raw fruits and vegetables, including raw juices.
Another testimony is of a gentleman who expelled tape-worms after 3 weeks.

"Internal parasites (endoparasites)

The following are blended together: 5 leaves of wormwood (Artemisia sp.), a handful of sunflower seeds (Helianthus annuus), a couple of fresh minced or crushed garlic cloves (Allium sativum), left-over onion and skins and honey to sweeten. The mixture is fed once a week as a preventative. Dried ground nettles seeds added to feed (Urtica sp.) are given free choice. Limited results are seen from 3–4 fresh minced cloves of garlic and tops added to the feed.
Conifers fed free choice are said to prevent worms. Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), red cedar (Thuja plicata) and juniper (Juniperus communis) are given. Common juniper berries (Juniperus communis) are said to be effective against liver fluke. Alternatively each goat gets 1/2 tsp wormwood (Artemisia sp.) in its feed. This treatment comes from an owner who uses wormwood (Artemisia sp.) infrequently and whose goats do not like it. Branches of the following are fed in winter time: cedar (Thuja plicata), Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus). Alternatively goats are given 2 drops of tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) on the tongue at milking time. This does not cause an off-taste in the milk. Goats are allowed to self medicate on long needle yellow pine (Pinus ponderosa). Animals are fed armfuls of carrot (Daucus carota), Celery (Apium graveolens), parsley (Petroselinum sp.) or parsnip tops (Pastinaca sativa).
Feeding ample amounts of branches of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is said to prevent coccidia.
External parasites – Lice
Bark shavings of cedar (Thuja plicata) are put in the bedding. Powdered neem (Azadirachta indica) is brushed into the coat. Neem is used less often than clipping. Alternatively the infused oil of pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium) is rubbed onto the top of the head and the spine of the goat – it is brushed well into the coat."
Raccoon Roundworm

"Raccoon Roundworm, a disease contracted through contact with raccoon feces...can cause permanent nerve damage and death. The disease had previously been incorrectly called Raccoon Ringworm."
