My daughter is living in Senegal, W Africa and has been told it is very common to get parasites especially foot worm. Searching the web I found a company selling a trio of Balck Walnut tincture (made from green hulls of walnut) whole cloves and one other thing I've forgotten! Does anyone know if this is valid or have any recommendations of herbal remedies I should send my daughter. Thank you.

Ginger root is supposed to be very effective for some internal parasites. The mountain folk here always used castor oil for pin worms/spring purge.

black walnut is used in herbal wormers for goats. so is wormwood. those parasites are typically in the digestive tract, though, not in their toes. might still work, though.

my buddy got a worm in his toe when he lived in Cameroon. folks in worm territory know how to get them out. my understanding is that it involves very slowly twisting the worm around a stick to pull it out.

This page has a list of herbs and what they do according to this website that sells herbal remedies for parasites. Im not affiliated with the seller but I've used them before with mixed results and will use them again soon

The Black Walnut / Clove / Wormwood trio is highly effective for a wide range of parasites. It's very important to take them together, as through synergy, the whole is greater than the sum of each part. The clove tincture disrupts them in the larval phase and prevents reinfection after the parents are long gone. The juglone and thujone (primary medicinal compounds active in the other two herbs) are very strong, and shouldn't really be taken regularly, though living in Senegal, doing a flush once a month is a very good idea.

More importantly, as was already mentioned, have her ask the locals what works for them.

This trio of herbs, black walnut hull tincture, clove, and wormwood was Hulda Clark's prescription, and she gives quantity and frequency guidelines in her books. The black walnut hulls have to be green to be effective, and the tincture has to be fresh. I've taken the green black walnuts from our neighborhood and filled a bottle of them and poured vodka over that for a few weeks to make the tincture because it is expensive online. I keep it in the freezer because I'm taking it once a week which is the recommendation, according to Clark, after you do the eighteen day cleanse. I take it once a week with seven wormwood capsules and three clove capsules. The cloves have to be freshly ground, not the grocery store pre-ground kind. It's easier to buy kits online until you get used to what you are doing. You can find lots of support for this at Curezone online. As I've passed parasites, I've been freaked out a couple of times and confused, so reading the experiences of others helped a great deal, especially since nearly everyone I know have dogmatic blinders on to the fact that they could possibly be harboring parasites. I've lost water weight, what I would call toxic water, water used to sequester the excess toxins floating around that the liver doesn't have the capacity to process because it's processing it's own waste in addition to the waste the parasites are producing. The liver flushes have also been responsible for the loss of more toxic water weight. You have to do them together and also use herbs to cleanse your liver and kidneys as they process out the waste. The recipe for herbal kidney cleanses and liver cleanses is in Andreas Moritz books.

You can use the parasite herbs on cats and dogs. The recommended dosages are in Clark's book: The Cure for All Disease

What I find very permi ironic is that Black Walnut is bad for hugelcultures because of the jugalone that kills off other living plants; that is the exact ingredient that helps humans kill off their parasite load.
