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.
