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.

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.
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.
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.
when your children are suffering from your punishment, tell your them it will help them write good poetry when they are older. Like this tiny ad:
