Category Archives: Herbs That Eliminate Parasites

These herbs do not act as strong as antiparasitic drugs and have a slower action. But, they will have a drastically less toxic effect on the body and have a long term effect of keeping parasites at bay. These herbs primarily treat round worms, tape worms and hook worms with para-umbilical pain, vomiting, varied appetite and rectal/nose/ear itching. The patient may also be fatigued, emaciated and have a distended abdomen. The herbs should be taken on an empty stomach several times per day as directed by your TCM doctor. These herbs should not be used if there is a fever or severe abdominal pain present in the patients main symptoms.
