6 Natural Alternatives to Ivermectin

by Andreea Laza

Looking for natural alternatives to Ivermectin? Continue reading this article and see what are the most powerful natural antiparasitic herbs and how to use them effectively. But first.

Recent studies about Ivermectin show that this antiparasitic medicine is good for prophylaxis and treatment of COVID-19. This comes as a confirmation of what a lot of doctors around the world have tried to tell us since last year. Given that Ivermectin is an antiparasitic drug, we will share with you some of the best natural alternatives to Ivermectin, which are the strongest antiparasitic herbs out there.

These herbs flush out and kill tapeworms, ascariasis, pinworms, and other intestinal parasites and are of three kinds, depending on their action:

  • dewormers – herbs that destroy parasitic organisms in the digestive tract
  • bitter tonics – herbs that promote peristalsis (muscles that help with bowel movement)
  • laxatives – herbs that accelerate intestinal transit and promote the flushing out of parasites from the digestive tract

Why Ivermectin Works Againts Covid-19

Natural Alternatives to Ivermectin - MYN

Coincidentally or not, one of the most powerful natural alternatives to Ivermectin is wormwood (the name holds a clue in it), which, after my research is also one of the top natural alternatives to hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug that has proven its efficiency in the fight against Covid-19. Curiously, malaria is also caused by a parasite.

Putting all the pieces together, my hypothesis is that Covid-19 affection acts as a parasite in the body, which is why antiparasitic drugs such as Ivermectin seem to work against it. This also explains the inflammation in the body created by COVID-19. More exactly, it inflames those parts of the body/organs that are already sensitive or affected by pre-existing conditions. People with arthritis complain that after contracting Covid-19 they have seen a rise in joint pain, while people with lung problems have witnessed a worsening in their breathing, the same with people with pre-existing digestive problems who have seen a worsening of their gastric problems after contracting Covid-19.

This is why antiparasitic drugs such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine work against Covid-19! Both fight parasites that cause inflammation in the body!

Now, let’s get to the natural alternatives to Ivermectin, strong antiparasitic herbs that can be used as prophylaxis and natural remedy for Covid-19. Here they are.

6 Natural Alternatives to Ivermectin & How to Use

1. Wormwood

(Artemisia absinthium) 

Wormwood is one of the most effective antiparasitic herbs in the world, and one of the best natural alternatives to Ivermectin. The active ingredients in wormwood are toxic to most types of intestinal worms, including Giardia lamblia, a parasite responsible for giardiasis. Moreover, wormwood is a strong bitter tonic, which promotes bowel movements and thus the elimination of intestinal parasites.

10 Natural Treatments for Giardiasis - Wormwood

You can use wormwood in powder form (3-4 teaspoons/day), in cures of ten days maximum, followed by a ten-day break. Wormwood can also be used in enemas, alongside equal parts of flaxseeds and chamomile flowers.

  • Put a teaspoon of each plant in a cup of cold water and leave it to soak overnight.
  • Strain the cold macerate and set aside.
  • Use the remaining plants and scald them in a cup of boiling water, allow the tea to cool for 15 minutes, then and strain.
  • Finally, combine the cold macerate and the warm tea.

Use an anal irrigator or an enema bulb to introduce the tea in the colon, while it is warm. Wormwood is one of the most powerful herbs that kill parasites, and perhaps the best natural alternatives to Ivermectin.

Note! This medicinal herb has two popular varieties Artemisia absinthium and Artemisia annua and both fight intestinal parasites, similarly to Ivermectin. Artemisia absinthium is called wormwood and is found in Europe and North America while Artemisia annua is referred to as sweet wormwood and is originally from China/Asia. The main difference between the two is that sweet wormwood has been used in fighting the malaria parasite in particular because this parasitic infection was widely spread in parts of Asia, while wormwood has traditionally been used for intestinal parasites. They both have considerable artemisinin content, the active compound, and are both natural alternatives to Ivermectin.

Very Important!

Wormwood tea and natural products should not be used longer than 8 days in a row. Always follow the dosage recommended on the package. In high doses, wormwood is toxic due to its volatile oils and has, in the first phase, a psychoexciting, convulsive, narcotic action, followed by tremor, epileptiform seizures, stupor, and unconsciousness. Wormwood products are not recommended to pregnant and lactating women or people suffering from ulcers. One should consult a doctor before using wormwood.

2. Tansy Tincture

(Tanacetum vulgare)

Tansy, also known as golden buttons is an even stronger anti-parasitic herb compared to wormwood and, in addition, can be administered for longer periods of time. Tansy tincture is very effective against tapeworms, roundworms, pinworms, and giardia parasites. As an adjunct, it is valuable against hydatid cysts and trichinellosis.

It is administered as a tincture, and the dose for an adult is 20-30 drops up to four times a day, over the course of 3 weeks. Pause for a week and resume if needed. This simple herb is one of the top natural alternatives to Ivermectin.

3. Centaury Powder

(Centaurium umbellatum/erythraea

Centaury is from the antiparasitic family of bitter plants and is a herb that stimulates bowel movements, which promotes the detachment of parasites from the walls of the colon where they cling to. The recommended dose for an adult is half a teaspoon of centaury powder four times a day. This is one of the best natural alternatives to Ivermectin.

4. Herbal Laxative Blend

Laxative herbs promote the quick elimination of worm eggs from the body and are usually taken 4 to 7 days after starting an anti-parasitic treatment. Make a powerful laxative herbal blend with:

You can use them together to make tea, or take them separately in a 10-14 days cure. The most powerful forms are elderberry tincture, alder buckthorn decoction, or with field bindweed extract or powder.

5. Artichoke Powder

(Cy­nara scolymus)

While not an antiparasitic herb per se, artichoke is part of the bitter plants family that amplify and support the action of anthelmintic herbs and also support the liver. This means that artichoke potentiates the action of wormwood, tansy, common centaury and Ivermectin, if you have this medicine available. Adults can have 1 teaspoon of artichoke powder twice a day.

6. Male Fern & Wormwood Sitz Bath

(Dryopteris filix-mas)

Herbal sitz baths have a very strong effect when using toxic plants that are extremely effective in killing intestinal worms, such as wormwood and male fern. Actually, the best sitz bath for parasites is a combination of the two. For the best effects, use these two herbs that kill parasites as follows:

  • Soak 1 tablespoon of male fern root and 10 tablespoons of wormwood in two liters of water at room temperature for eight to ten hours (overnight).
  • Strain the resulting cold maceration and set it aside.
  • Put the used plants in another two liters of boiling water this time, and leave covered until the decoction has cooled, then strain.

Combine the two teas (the cold maceration and the warm infusion) and pour them into your bath water or in a basin. Make sure the water is around 38-39°C/100-102°F. Do the sitz bath for 20-30 minutes, the pad the area dry with a towel, and rest in a very warm place for half an hour. Follow the procedure daily for a week.

Foods that Feed Parasites (MUST AVOID)

  • Eggs – the ultimate food for parasites.
  • Sugar and sweets (including artificial sugar replacers – instead opt for natural sugar alternatives that are healthy)
  • Diary products (opt for organic, grass feed or even better, vegetal dairy, such as coconut, almond, cashew or oat milk/yourt/cheese)
  • White bread, pastry, refined cereals (instead choose whole grains and pseudocereals such as quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat etc)
  • Fats (animal and vegetal) – a high-fat diet is inflammatory by nature.
  • GMOs – most corn and soy crops around the world are GMO.
  • Preservatives & artificial flavors – highly processed foods are the perfect feast for parasites

Alongside the natural alternatives to Ivermectin, eveyone should consider following an anti-inflammatory diet that supports the immune system and doesn’t allow for parasites to thrive. Leafy greens, fresh fruits, plain vegetables and salads are key to building up a strong immunity that can protect us from any parasites, viruses and pathogens.

Thank you for your website on the 6 alternatives to ivermectine. I would like clarification:
Are you suggesting to choose 1 of the alternatives, OR use all 6 alternatives, if I cannot get ivermectine?
Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi Jeannette, I offered 6 alternatives to Ivermectin that people can choose from. I do not suggest using all of them together because they have similar action, so that may not necessarily be helpful. So yes, one of them should do. Much health to you! 💚

I remember reading sometime near the start of the pandemic that some countries in the southern part of the continent of Africa were planning on using Artemisia/Wormwood to treat Covid. I think it is also being used in China. A web-search might bring up some information.

You have interesting theories. Thank for sharing them. Good luck to you!

Hello Jamie! All the information here comes from a large collection of natural remedies from Central and Eastern Europe and our own research and findings. I am really happy for your real interest in natural ways of healing and I think it is no coincidence that you are here. I also had a two-weeks flu with Covid like symptoms and I used antibiotic and antiviral essential oils, chinine, artemisinin extracts with Zinc and Vitamin D and I am feeling very well now. The smell and taste are back too. Of course, everyone should follow their own heart in what is best for them, but to do this we need an open mind to all possibilities and alternatives so we can make an informed decision.

Andreea, while i too am livid at tyrants and mandates, i feel i must call out the whole truth here.

Please understand, that if there’s anyone with my type of chronic condition (which entails a low-mucus body similar to some geriatrics, and which is more vulnerable to nasal-drip+flu), then Eggs and Yogurt are literally lifesavers for us, and actually anti-inflammatory!
…Believe it or not, my body is NOT vulnerable to Covid, but it IS vulnerable to flu/nasal-drip.
……My body thrives on moderate thickeners NOT extreme thinners such as lemon/pepper/salt.

Just because you can relate to those who can’t tolerate high-lysine foods, not everybody is like that! For people like myself, it’s potent-spices, high-salt, citric acid and rawgarlic/onion which are inflammatory! Also 75% dark chocolate which you find in health sections, gives me migraines (I’m on Maxalt). In general, for me, High Arginine MUST always be balanced with enough Lysine foods!

It’s NOT a one-size-fits-all world! Both dairy products and sweeteners have been given much more of a bad rap than they deserve – and any warnings which lack shades of grey – can worsen the situation of those who fit my description.

To put it simply, “grounding” foods such as veggies, carbs/starches in moderation, lysine, low-fat dairy, especially high-quality yogurts, are fine for me.
…What’s bad is HIGH-fat/HIGH-sodium pizza – that locks up my joints & clogs vessels.
…And if I take raw cane-sugar in moderation (such as to counteract dips which are too salty/or/spicy), that too, is a great choice for me. I also add Truvia or Stevia to tea’s.

Those are but a few examples, but it’s simply a matter of figuring out how to combine foods in a way that’s best for oneself. Life is not black & white.
…For example, there are the Keto and Atkins diet, those are Black & White
……(though epileptics may be an exception).
…and then there’s the South Beach Diet, which acknowledges Shades of Grey.

Hi Judy! Thank you for sharing your experience with us, I also agree with the fact that there’s no black and white world we live in and we’re all different and our bodies need some of these “inflammatory” foods from time to time. My opinion is that everyone should know their own body, what works for them and what not but with honesty. Fine tuning is what we should all be doing with respect to our bodily needs, beliefs and what we want to experience in this lifetime. Much health to you! 💚🤗

Ivermectin does not interact with C19 the way it interacts with parasites, they are completely different mechanisms of action. Please read this and similar articles: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8203399/

Medicinal herbs contain complex active principles that synergetically work together on multiple levels, for instance, wormwood is not just a parasite killer, it is also a known cancer cells killer, and it also has antimicrobial, anti-infectious, immune-modulating, antiviral, antifungal, cytotoxic, and many other actions. The main active substance in wormwood is artemisinin. Studies have shown that this natural compound has the ability to kill tumor cells indirectly by boosting the production of the natural killer cells (NK). Natural killer cells are innate immune cells that show spontaneous cytolytic activity against cells under stress such as tumor cells and virus-infected cells. Yes, natural killer cells kill virus-infected cells. Artemisinin has been shown to induce the cytolytic activity of natural killer cells (here).
It also activates macrophages, induces nitric oxide synthases, and exhibits an anti-proliferative effect by blocking viral/tumor cell growth. Basically, this natural compound does two of the main actions similar to ivermectin: inhibits viral replication and stimulates the body’s natural killer cells to fight the disease. Thank you for your point of view, and much health to you!💚

Hi and Andreeiza, my question is, should wormwood be taken daily in smaller doses for prevention of getting covid or should you just take it only when you have the flu like symptoms. For prevention, I am currently taking Quercetin and vitamin D, garlic, high doses of vitamin C and Zinc for prevention of covid. Plus I’m trying to eat healthier and drink lots of fresh water. I bought some Sweet Wormwood in a pill, but I haven’t taken any yet. I was wondering if it was more for prevention or for healing after you get covid. What do you recommend? Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi Rachel! My personal opinion is that wormwood can be taken at the very first symptoms of cold/flu, it is not a supplement as Quercetin or Vitamin D or C. Wormwood is a powerful dewormer as well as antitumoral, so it should only be used when symptoms appear. Much health to you! 💚

I am contemplating making a tincture of some of the herbs for the natural ivermectin and for killing the spike protein. I think it would work well basically killing two birds every dose. Question, would it right to do, say a cup of each herb and then leave for the regular time, or should the amounts vary as per herb? I am keen to try this.

Hi Nicole! I’m using the terminology “Covid-19” so people understand what I am talking about, so I am able to help them. It is not that I believe or not that the virus actually exists. I am well aware of the fact that it has not been isolated and it’s a case of pneumonia that for most people is very mild, but for others who have a depressed immune system can be more severe. We do not sell anything to people here, but try to offer alternatives that work and make them understand that there’s always a way. For instance I was the first to research alternatives for hydroxychloroquine and recommend quinine to the world, after that I bet you’ve seen my information on other websites. It’s a harmless natural product, no side effects. My question for you is: If you know this virus doesn’t exist why did you search for alternatives to Ivermectin? I really hope that the information here will serve you too. Much health and love to you! 💚

Andreea Laza December 11, 2021 - 10:07

Hi Cheryl! From what I know there is no negative interaction between quercetin and wormwood, even more, sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua) has been studied for its anti-cancer properties, and the results are promising. Ideally use the full herbal extract (tincture, powder, infusion) and not the isolated active component (artemisinin), because plants have higher intelligence and they contain a complex of substances that potentiate and also regulate each other, and when we isolate some of them, we actually lower and even damage the plant’s ability to heal us. Much health to you and swift recovery! 😘💚

Hello S! Natural remedies and herbs are meant to be used with care in regards to respecting the dosage and counterindications for certain pathologies. When these things are not respected, you can even have the exact opposite effects of the intended purpose. In Materia medica you can find that drinking too much St. John’s wort tea over long periods of time can cause neuralgias, too much onion tea can lead to chest constriction, dyspnea, cough etc., while too much horsetail tea can lead to the sensation of a knob in the rectum and the list can go on. At the same time, many herbs are damned by modern medicine inducing fear in people, and curiously, many of these herbs have been used for treating cancer (take wormwood for instance (Artemisia annua) and other major health issues. Food for thought. Of course, this website is for informational purposes and we recommend to everyone that they consult a naturopath for personalized treatments. I hope this information has helped you, much health to you! 💚

Hi Joey! Most fat in inflammatory in large quantites, even vegetal fat. There are fats that actually can help such as coconut oil, flaxseed oil and avocado oil. Meat fats are highly inflammatory because all meat products create acidosis in the body, and an acidic environment feeds pathogens and paves the way for inflammation. Sorry to dissapoint you.

Hello Andreea,

My question is can wormwood be used for people with severe COVID-19 symptoms, such as pneumonia? If so, can capsules be taken and how many? Also, does it have to be taken with Black Walnut Hulls and Common cloves to get rid of all parasites (adults and eggs) and with ORNITHINE and ARGININE to get rid of the ammonia released by the parasites? I have a relative with COVID-19 related pneumonia and loss of appetite. Has lots of body discomfort. In need of help for him. Thank you.

For the dosage, please follow the instructions in the leaflet of the supplement. In addition to this, I recommend a blend of essential oils with powerful anitviral and antibiotic properties, that you can find how to make here: https://www.mynaturaltreatment.com/make-natural-antiviral-for-covid-19/ Zinc, Vitamin C and quinine are also helpful.
