From my perspective a natural dewormer would be NOT using chemicals such as ;
Macrocycliclactones (ivermectin, moxidectin)
Consider that a chemical dewormer is by nature and design a toxic substance, designed to kill or disable parasites, and hopefully not cause too much damage to the host animal in the process. Worming more often than necessary can contribute to liver toxicity which stresses the animal unnecessarily, actually weakening the body and making it more of a target for parasite infestation. Remember, after all, parasites, insects and disease are “Nature’s Garbage Collectors,” designed by the Grand Scheme of Things to stress and eliminate the weak and unhealthy animal or plant, recycle it back to the earth and start over, thus sparing resources for the healthy and viable.
There are many natural dewormer alternatives available, as many of you have heard stories about old timers using tobacco as a worming method. There are herbs such as wormwood that can also be used. I have read that pumpkin seeds are also effective. I believe that Mother Nature provides everything we need to maintain optimum health and we have gotten far away from this due our busy lifestyle and the pharmaceutical industry putting profit ahead of nature. I believe that drugs have their place and can be spectacularly successful, but they are but one means of addressing imbalance and by far not the only.
When I was looking for an alternative dewormer for my animals I chose the final formula for Wormfree Naturally not only because it works, but because it has so many additional benefits that other methods simply do not. Not only does it rid the body of intestinal parasites, but has a plethora of uses and benefits.
Wormfree Naturally has only 2 ingredients. Food grade diatomaceous earth(DE) and probiotics. Both are safe for human consumption and I know many people, including myself who take a teaspoon of DE daily mixed into water or juice to address a myriad of issues including, internal cleansing, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and arthritis, just to name a few.
DE as it is commonly referred to is one of Mother Natures greatest gifts.
MORE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH BENEFITS: Food grade diatomaceous earth has been reported in scientific literature to absorb methyl mercury, e-coli, endotoxins, viruses (including polio virus), organophosphate pesticide residues, drug resides, and protein, perhaps even the proteinaceous toxins produced by some intestinal infections. Food grade diatomaceous earth detoxes.
There are some features about food grade diatomaceous earth that correspond with its ability as both a digestive aid and a colon cleanser. The honeycomb skeletal form of diatomaceous earth is found, under microscopic evaluation to reveal a tendency to become filled and clogged with hard debris such as intestinal scale. Food grade diatomaceous earth has not been found to cause any insult to the mucosa or barrier wall.
Diatomaceous earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge, wherein it is believed by some that food grade diatomaceous earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in its honeycomb shaped skeletal form.
