Considered a potent remedy in herbal medicine, walnut leaves are very astringent and antiseptic.
According to researchers, walnut leaves even have bacteria-killing, anti-parasitic, and insect-repelling properties. This largely confirms long-held folk beliefs about the healing qualities of the leaf.
WALNUT LEAVES FOR DIARRHEA
You’ll need walnut bark leaves. Use a teaspoon of freshly picked or dried leaves for every cup of tea you want to make, put it in a teapot and add boiling water.
Wait for 15-20 minutes (the leaves are quite woody, so they need more time to release their natural benefits), take out the leaves and drink it hot or cold. If you’re thinking about keeping it in your refrigerator, don’t let it stay there for too long. Make a new bottle of tea every 3 or 4 days.
WALNUT OIL TO REMOVE PARASITES
Black walnut hulls can be used to remove parasites in both humans and animals, including ringworm and tapeworm. These harmful organisms may enter our bodies through contaminated water or food, mosquito bites, touching pets and other animals or any infected surface and then touching your nose or mouth.
Dr. Hulda Clark popularized the protocol of using wormwood, green black walnut hulls and cloves together as a powerful anti-parasitic treatment.
