How to use thyme for intestinal parasites?
1. Use it as a spice
With a fragrance, thyme is a wonderful addition to bean, egg and vegetable dishes. You can use it, either in its fresh or dried form, as a spice, adding it to meat, vegetables and your daily diet. This will make your digestive tract a non-friendly environment for intestinal parasites, and keep them out of your body.
Please note, when using it for cooking, thyme should be added at the end of the cooking process because its delicate flavor will be lost in heat.

– Dried thyme 30g (or fresh thyme 90g)
– Water 2 cups
– Bring to a boil, then immediately turn off the heat and leave for 10-20 minutes
– Drink a cup, twice a day for 3-4 days
Please note, do not boil thyme for a long time, otherwise, its aromatic ingredients will be lost.
You should always consult your doctor before taking any remedies.
