black walnut

black walnut

Tree grows to 120 feet. (40m) Rounded lime-shaped fruit- a very strong anti-parasite herb and mitosis inhibitor (helps stop cancer cells from dividing) Rich in iodine, important for production of thyroid hormones. Green hulls of black walnut are even better for anti-parasite action. Leaf tea is astringent ((bleeding, diarrhea), insecticide against bedbugs, anti-fungal against athlete’s foot(ringworm), lice, anti-viral, anti-tumor, and very strong sedative. Leaf tea also used for eczema, hives and boils. This plant packs some power! The nut is covered in a shell, which is covered in a husk. After collecting, remove husk and let nut dry for a couple of weeks. Then like with acorns, put them in water. Throw out any that float. Put in hot water and soak for a day (water can cool down while soaking). Throw out water, add new hot water and soak a couple more hours. Then remove shells and seal in glass jars in refrigerator for up to a year. The green hulls can be ground into a powder and used for parasite killing internally or externally. It’s in my parasite formula. Inner bark is laxative. Do not use internally if pregnant.

For example, the dense, woody hull of Juglans nigra effectively prevents all birds and weak-jawed mammals from eating the nuts.
Some species, like Juglans nigra, use stress-induced leaf abscission during summer to increase the root-shoot ratio in order to maintain a more favorable water balance during summer droughts (Parker & Pallardy, 1985; Pallardy & Rhoads, 1993).
