Wormwood Benefits: Heal Yourself of Intestinal Parasites Naturally

As modern medicine advances, we have begun to take several steps back in some regards. This is largely attributed to forgetting about natural treatments that have been around for thousands of years. As the saying goes: “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Unfortunately, there has been a lot of fixing in the medicine industry lately in order to make massive profits, when safe, natural alternatives exist. Alternatives that have been around for thousands of years. That’s not to say modern medicine isn’t important and hasn’t increased our lifespan. It has. But, there have been multiple collateral effects associated with modern medicine, particularly the overuse of antibiotics.


One of the most powerful dewormers and anti stomach bug medicines out there: wormwood. Wormwood has been used for thousands of years to cure all kinds of ailments, particularly those affecting the digestive tracts. Unsurprisingly, many people have not heard of this ethnobotanical herb. That’s why we’ll give you a break down of what wormwood is and how it can cure you of intestinal parasites and even fight cancer.

Introduction to Wormwood… Are There Worms in Wormwood?

Wormwood sounds like an awfully strange name for an herb. The two words that make up the name “worm” and “wood” have nothing to do with the herb. Wormwood is an ethnobotanical plant form Europe that has been used for centuries in order to heal and cleanse the digestive tract.


In fact, there’s a special drink known as “absinthe” that is made from wormwood along with anise and fennel. It’s then fermented to make a spirit, perfect for getting buzzed while enjoying the flavorful herbal benefits. This traditional drink was even a favorite of Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, and Picasso back in their day. The wormwood herb is a powerful herb that heals many different conditions and also makes for a tasty spirit.

Why Antibiotics Can Be Harmful and the Wormwood Herb Can Be a Better Solution

One of the most common uses of the wormwood herb is for its antibiotic and anti working properties. Whether you’ve gone on a trip to mexico and accidently swallowed the water or went on a camping trip and caught a bug from the stream or pond, you can help repair the damage and restore the balance of your microflora with the wormwood herb. Wormwood will help rid your system of most harmful bugs so that you can get your gastrointestinal tract back into working order.


While antibiotics may be necessary for various sexually transmitted diseases, serious bacterial infections or for radiation and chemotherapy treatments, there are other conditions (like colds and flu) where antibiotics are often over prescribed. If you have a minor stomach bug or illness, consider using the wormwood herb as your first line of defense as antibiotics have some pretty nasty side effects.

Potential Side Effects of Antibiotics

  • Diarrhea and Indigestion. Probably one of the most common effects of antibiotics, diarrhea and indigestion are likely to happen if you take antibiotics. That’s the benefit of taking the wormwood herb. While diarrhea and indigestion may happen as a result of “flushing” the bad bug out of your system, it’s not likely to be as severe as taking an antibiotic. That’s because it specially targets bad bugs without harming the beneficial bacteria.

  • Irreparable Damage to Gut Microflora. That’s right, you can do some serious damage to your gut and the bacteria that inhabit it. Science still hasn’t determined whether or not the gut microflora is able to repair itself after just a single course of antibiotics. That’s why it’s said that the antibiotic is the medicine of the 20th century while probiotics are the medicine of the 21st century. That’s the benefit of wormwood; it doesn't interfere with your body’s balance of good bacteria while helping to eliminate the bad.

  • Decreased Ability to Absorb Important Minerals Like Magnesium for Up to One Year. When you take antibiotics, you kill off the good bacteria along with the bad, unfortunately. As many minerals are metabolised in the stomach, you lose the ability to do so effectively with less of the ‘good guys” on your side. There are multiple studies that show that mineral indigestion is affected for up to a year and potentially longer. You can avoid this risk by taking wormwood.


Other Benefits of Wormwood

  1. Attacks Malaria. Wormwood has been found to be a powerful treatment for malaria. As you probably know, malaria is a parasite that kills thousands each year, particularly in Africa and other underdeveloped places. Malaria is often contracted in Africa and is spread via mosquitoes. In fact, the first line treatment for malaria is not some fancy, synthetic medicine created in lab. Rather it’s Artemisinin, an extract isolated in the wormwood herb.

  2. Treats Crohn's Disease. Wormwood benefits don’t just end with stopping malaria in its tracks. Wormwoods has also been proven to be an effective treatment for those suffering from Crohn's disease. If you are having pain in your digestive tract, you’ll likely try anything to make it stop. If conventional medicine isn’t working, give wormwood a try.

  3. Has Powerful Antifungal and Antibiotic Properties. There are all kinds of conditions that arise when bad bacteria overgrows the good bacteria, not just in the stomach but in all parts of the body. One of the most common fungal conditions is athlete's foot between the toes. Who would have thought the wormwood herb would be so potent against athletes foot and other fungal conditions?

  4. Beats Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth. Again, relating to its antiparasitic and antibiotic-like properties, the benefits of wormwood are endless when it comes to creating a proper balance in your gut. If you have an overgrowth of bad bugs in your small intestine, wormwood does a good job of rooting out the bad guys will ensuring the good guys can flourish without menacing bad bacteria.
