Black Walnut hull - are made into poultices and rubbed into the skin to treat fungal, bacterial, or viral infections such as herpes or warts. External applications of black walnut also kill ringworm, and Chinese herbalists use this substance to kill tapeworm.
Wormwood - Key actions: Aromatic bitter, stimulates secretion of bile, anti inflammatory, eliminates worms, eases stomach pain and mild antidepressant. Wormwood is used in the treatment of amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, malaria, chorea, hysteria, catarrh, and asthma. Oil of chenopodium is derived from this plant. It is antihelminthic, that is, it kills intestinal worms, and was once listed for this use in the US Pharmacopeia. Wormwood is used traditionally to eliminate worms and treating infections. Many constituents within Wormwood "are very bitter, affecting the bitter taste receptors of the tongue, which sets off a reflex action, stimulating stomach and other digestive secretions". (Enclyclopedia of Herbal Medicine Andrew Chevallier, p. 66)
Agrimony – "contains the chemical compound agrimophol, which expels parasites. Agrimophol causes parasites to lose their hold on the lining of the bladder or intestines so that they are evacuated with urine or stool. This substance also kills the organism that causes river blindness, a tropical disease in which parasites infest the eye, and many common bacteria, including Escherichia coli (E. coli) and staphylococcus bacteria, as well as the bacteria that cause dysentery and typhoid fever". (Herbal Healing, Phyllis A. Balch p. 15) Agrimony "is a valuable remedy for cystitis and urinary incontinence, and has also been used for kidney stones, sore throats, rheumatism, and arthritis". (Herbal Medicine, Andrew Chevallier p. 162)
Pau D'arco - Key actions: Antibacterial, antifungal, immune stimulant, anti-inflammatory, cleansing, tonic and antitumor. Uses: "The napthaquinones in lapacho have significant antifungal activity against Candida albicans in particular and are antibacterial". (Enclyclopedia of Herbal Medicine Andrew, Chevallier, p. 139) Traditional Pau D'arco is used to treat fever, wounds, dysentery, cancer, and various viral and bacterial infections.
Ginger Rhizome (Zingiber Officinale), a popular seasoning for many cuisines, provides excellent natural support for gastrointestinal health, especially when traveling. "Ginger contains high amounts of a powerful anti-inflammatory substance called zingibain. According to some experts, it's even more potent than the bromelain in pineapple or the papain in papaya. Ginger reportedly contains 180 times more proteolytic enzymes than the papaya plant". (Healing Foods, James A. Duke, p. 59) Ginger is also used to heal insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, allergies, gout, headaches, memory loss, menstrual cramps, hemorrhoid and main herb for nausea. "Ginger contains 241 different chemicals (at last count), many of which have various activities that can help with overall heart health". (James A. Duke, Healing Foods p. 255)
Prickly Ash - Key actions: circulatory stimulant, increases sweating, antirheumatic and carminative. "Western herbalists regard prickly ash as a prime remedy for rheumatic and arthritic problems. It stimulates blood flow to painful and stiff joints, promoting the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the area and removing waste products. Prickly ash improves the circulation in both intermittent claudication and Raynaud's disease". (Enclyclopedia of Herbal Medicine, Andrew Chevallier, p. 153)
