Native Americans used the wormwood plant to relieve digestive problems and also to expel intestinal worms from the body.
In today’s herbal medicine, it is used to improve digestion and the absorption of nutrients by stimulating the production of stomach acid and bile.*
For wound healing and inflammation, a wormwood poultice may be applied directly to the skin to help reduce the swelling and inflammation of bruises, insect bites, or sprains.*
Dr. Hulda Clark includes wormwood as one of the three main herbs to be used in her parasite cleanse.
