Wormwood and Nursing......
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:55:04 AM »
Can anyone tell me if it is okay to take Wormwood while nursing? I've read that you shouldn't take it while pregnant, but didn't find anything about using it while nursing. I have a 8 mon old baby that I am still nursing pretty much full time (i.e haven't started him on solids yet). We have been trying to do a parasite cleanse with Black Walnut, wormwood and cloves and I am wondering if this is a bad thing? Thanks for your help!

Hello,
   Here is a link to where I buy my herbal dewormer for my goats which has wormwood in it.  Find the section on Herbal Dewormers and read ALL the way to the bottom of the page.  She continues to give more and new information on the wormwood that will hopefully help you in your decision.  http://fiascofarm.com/goats/wormers.htm#herbal .  Susan

Susan: Thanks! It sounds like I would be better off staying away from wormwood and trying garlic or other types of wormer.  ;)
