Latin (botanical) name: Artemisia Absinthium

Common names: Wormwood, Sweet Annie, Green Ginger, Annual Wormwood, Sweet Sagewort, Sweet Wormwood
Plant Description: Wormwood, native to the Mediterranean and central Europe, is now also found in Siberia, Canada, and parts of the northeastern United States. It is generally found growing wild on roadsides and wastelands. Wormwood has a perennial root, and grows from mid-summer to mid-autum. From the root, branched, leafy stems arise covered with fine, silky, grayish-white hairs. Its leaves are dark green, covered also in silky grayish hairs which gives them a downy feel, and about 3 inches long and 1-1/2 inches broad. From July to October, Wormwood blooms with small, greenish-yellow, nearly globular flowers arranged in a leafy panicle. Wormwood shrubs are very coarse, sprawling, and aromatic. Its leaves and flowers are bitter, and the leaves and roots exude a substance that restricts many other plants from growing nearby.

Medicinal Properties &Uses: The chief constituent in Wormwood is volatile oil, which contains thujone bitters (absinthum), absinthol, thujyl alcohol, bitter sesquiterpene lactone, flavonoids, and bitter glycosides. The herb also contains the tannin, resin, starch, nitrate of potash, and other salts.


Traditionally, it has been used to expel roundworm and threadworm. It is one of three ingredients in Hulga Clark’s treatment for parasites along with Black Walnut tincture and Clove capsules.


Hulga Clark's Parasite Program

1. Black Walnut Hull Tincture Extra StrengthDay 1:  Take 2 tsp., all together in ¼ cup water. Sip it, don’tgulp it. Get it down within 15 minutes.This dose kills any remaining stages throughout the body,including the bowel contents, a location unreachable byelectric current. The alcohol in the tincture can make youslightly woozy for several minutes. Simply stay seated untilyou are comfortable again. You may put the tincture inlukewarm water to help evaporate some of the alcohol,but do not use hot water because that may damage itsparasiticide power. Then take niacinamide 500 mg tocounteract the toxicity of the alcohol. You could also feela slight nausea for a few minutes. Walk in the fresh air orsimply rest until it passes. You may add more water orhoney or a spice to make it more palatable.For a year: take 2 tsp. Black Walnut Hull Tincture ExtraStrength every week or until your illness is but a hazymemory. This is to kill any parasite stages you pick up fromyour family, friends, or pets.Family members and friends should take 2 tsp. every otherweek to avoid reinfecting you. They may be harboring a fewparasite stages in their intestinal tract without having symptoms.But when these stages are transmitted to a cancer patient, theyimmediately seek out the cancerous organ again.
