Killing the Killers in You

Roundworms are parasites that can infect human beings via contact with animals, particularly animal feces. Poor hygiene habits can also cause roundworm infections. An inadequate diet and constipation are contributing factors.

Roundworms (nematodes) include ascares lumbricoides, hookworm, strongyloides stercoralis, ancylastoma caninum, whipworm, pinworm, toxocara canis, dirofilaria immitis (dog heartworm) and trichinosis.

Symptoms include, but are not limited to, restlessness, bruxism and spasms. Left untreated roundworms can lead to other health problems including digestive disorders, a dry cough, blood in the stools, anemia and weight disorders.

Among the allopathic doctors, there is little knowledge about parasites as the cause of disease in human beings. Conventional doctors have few diagnostic tests for parasites and very few drugs to treat parasites of any kind.

Fortunately, there are numerous alternative health remedies for roundworms. Any one of the following suggestions can be highly effective.

Take one half cup of raw pumpkin seeds per day for a period of three days.

Consume one garlic clove per day. Press it with the edge of a dull knife blade to release the active constituent allacin. Do this twice per day for ten days in a row to expel roundworms.

Eat three to four figs, preferably white figs, daily. Do this for 10 days in a row to paralyze roundworms.

Take the anti-parasitic herbal supplement Rascal, which is a combination of pumpkin seed, garlic, cramp bark, capsicum and thyme, four capsules, three times per day before meals until the bottle is gone.

A tea of wormwood has long been know to expel all kinds of parasites, including roundworms. Two cups of this tea morning and evening can remedy parasites. Alternatively, a tincture of wormwood can be taken two to three times per day. Do not use wormwood beyond approximately two weeks as doing so can be detrimental to health.

Wormseed, also known as Mexican tea and chenopodium ambrosiodes, is effective against roundworms. The oil should not be used because of the dangers of easily overdosing. According to “A Modern Herbal” by Mrs. Grieve, “The expressed juice of the fresh plant is also employed, in tablespoonful doses. The drug should be given in one full dose, fasting, and then be followed, in about two hours, by an active purgative, such as castor oil.”

As an adjunct to any of the above treatments for roundworm, drink two cups of senna leaf and peppermint. This can be used as a follow up remedy that helps expel parasites from the colon. Add ginger and hot peppers to your daily diet.

These herbs should not be used by those who are pregnant or nursing. Never use wormseed in oil form, it is highly toxic.

Electronic “zappers” that operate on the same frequency range of internal parasites are used by many people to treat parasites. These relatively simple devices can be constructed by people who have some knowledge of electronics.

Colloidal silver can also safely kill parasites, including roundworms. A standard dose of colloidal silver is two to three tablespoons daily, taken morning and night, in divided doses. Colloidal silver kills parasites by destroying them in their egg stage, so it must be taken over an extended period of time to be fully effective.

Using common sense hygiene will help to prevent an infestation of roundworms and most other parasites in human beings. Do not put your hands in your mouth or your eyes. Monitor the hands to mouth and eyes activities of children, as well, as they can be particularly vulnerable.

Aroma ‘Therapy’ and the Black Death

From Mediaeval times until the mid-1800s, it was generally believed that diseases were caused and spread through a corruption of the air or ‘miasma’. This belief probably arose because of the foul smells associated with illness and the lack of hygiene common at that time. When it came to preventing or treating such diseases, a lack of any knowledge of modern science or medicine meant that people had only the beliefs and practices of their ancestors to rely on. While some of these, mainly herbal, remedies have been since found to be effective (e.g. wormwood for stomach complaints and lungwort for respiratory problems), most were totally ineffective when the Black Death swept across Europe in the 1300s.

The most common form of the Black Death was the bubonic plague, characterized by the appearance of black-coloured buboes in the groin, neck and armpits, which oozed pus and blood, together with fever, headaches, painful aches in the joints, nausea and vomiting. It was highly contagious and usually fatal. The Black Death was universally feared – it spread ferociously fast, and death could occur within a couple of hours of the onset of symptoms. Between the 14th and 17th centuries, Europe suffered a series of attacks from the plague, and the consequences were enormous. Between 1348 and 1350 alone, the Black Death is estimated to have killed between one- and two-thirds of the population of Europe.

The plague was associated with a characteristic stink – the huge number of victims together with the rapid and high death rate associated with the plague would have given rise to an extraordinarily strong stench. This reinforced in most people’s minds the idea that the disease was carried in contaminated air. Among the more obvious remedies that were proposed, therefore, were those based on aroma – the aim was to counter the bad air with sweet-smelling agents, which were thought to have the power to overcome the harmful evil odours. Herbs and spices were most popular, though generally anything that smelt good was considered useful.

Those who could afford it burned a range of aromatic herbs – such as rosemary, juniper, laurel, pine and beech – in their houses, to help ward off bad smells and purify the air. Camphor and sulphur were also thought to be effective. Sweet-smelling herbs, such as lavender, sage, thyme, meadowsweet and winter savoury, were dried and strewn on the floor, sewn into cloth bags or carried as posies. Cloths infused with aromatic oils, such as camphor, rosemary or laurel, that were used to cover the face when going out were a more expensive option. Vinegar was also thought to be an effective deterrent.

Even wealthier people could afford pomanders. These consisted of pierced metal cases containing resin or wax embedded with a multitude of expensive aromatic spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Held to the nose, the pierced casing allowed the scent to escape, thus (supposedly) offering the owner protection from the air-borne pestilence. The attractions of the aromatic spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, are perhaps obvious, but ambergris, a waxy secretion of the intestinal tract of the sperm whale, was also used in pomanders. Unlikely as it may seem, ambergris has a pleasant sweet fragrance and is still used today by the perfume industry. Only the very rich could afford to carry ambergris pomanders, and these were considered to be more potent against the plague than other pomanders.

In Elizabethan times there are reports of many ‘cures’ for the plague: here are two of those based on herbal remedies…


“Take yarrow, tansy, featherfew, of each a handful, and bruise them well together, then let the sick party make water into the herbs, then strain them, and give it the sick to drink.” (The belief that drinking your own urine is a panacea for all ills is a relatively common one even today.)


Take of sage, rue, briar leaves, elder leaves, of each a handful, stamp them and strain them with a quart of white wine, and put thereto a little ginger, and a good spoonful of the best treacle, and drink thereof morning and evening.

Although the remedies available at this time were totally ineffective at treating people who developed the plague there is a possibility that some may, strangely enough, have actually been of some help in preventing the spread of the plague. Wormwood, rosemary, feverfew and tansy, in particular, are today recognized for their flea-repelling properties (indeed wormwood was used as a flea deterrent during the plague years) – and fleas and the rats that carried them are now generally thought to have been responsible for carrying and spreading this devastating disease.
