Artemisia & Clove: Remove Unwanted Organisms
Welcome to the 10th topic in our series of the 45 Day Total Body Detox
When we are heavy metal toxic, the body becomes an acidic wasteland. Additionally, high stress, poor diets and inadequate chewing also contribute to increasing the acidic burden within the body. This acidity makes us very good hosts for various unwanted organisms. An unwanted organism is one that lives in or on an organism of another species (the host), and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other's expense. As we are removing heavy metals during the 45-Day Total Body Detox, this is an optimal time to also address these other unwelcome imbalances.
Could I possibly have unwanted organisms?
Well, if you have dined at a restaurant in the last twelve months, have pets, ever skipped washing your hands or if you crave sweets or carbohydrates, the answer is most likely “yes.” In our clinical experience over a 4-year period of stool testing every patient for unwanted organisms, 99.9% had between one and five different kinds of unwanted organisms.
Signs of Unwanted Organisms
- Craving carbs and sugar
- Unexplained anger
- Not feeling like one’s self
- Grinding teeth
- Itchy bottom
- Restless sleep
- Hard or soft stools
The toxic byproducts produced by unwanted organisms acidify the tissues and pre-dispose us to health imbalances. They trigger and gradually wear down the immune system, making us even more vulnerable to their invasion and to other imbalances. Simply said: unwanted organisms steal vital nutrients from the body, skew emotions and mental function, damage tissues and organs, and increase our need to detoxify. They turn our bodies into the perfect environment for health issues to develop.
Unwanted Organisms and Digestion
The relationship between unwanted organisms and digestion is intimate and tangled. Poor digestion can open the doors for organisms to flourish, while a perfectly healthy digestive tract can be derailed by the introduction of one of these organisms. When a person experiences sluggish bowel or does not evacuate completely when having a bowel movement, the body does not get to eliminate waste products as intended. This stagnant matter turns the intestines into a playground for unwanted organisms as they see it as a great source of sustenance. In addition, your body now has to share the food you consume with these unwanted guests, which means less protein, carbohydrates, fats and nutrients for you and can lead to cravings, specifically carbs and sugar. It can be a vicious cycle and one that is difficult to interrupt.
Herbs that decrease unwanted organisms:
- Artemisia (Wormwood) won the Nobel prize for Medicine for its ability to kill unwanted organisms
- Clove, which is warming and stimulates cognitive function. It’s also good for loose stools, intestinal gas, and poor appetite.
- Black or Green Walnut Hulls have iodine and tannins that help bowel regularity, support healthy levels of blood sugar, and remove unwanted organisms.
- Cinnamon and Ginger are warming and support digestion.
Artemisia & Clove™ is a broad-spectrum herbal supplement that includes artemisia, clove and black walnut hulls to safely remove unwanted organisms.

Clinical Test with Artemisia & Clove
Patients that tested positive for at least one variation of an unwanted organism in a stool test were administered a dose of 8 droppers of Artemisia & Clove, twice (2x) per day*. Upon retesting, Artemisia & Clove proved to have a clearing effect on several different organisms as shown by Dowell Labs.
*Diatomaceous earth was added for treatment of ascaris
Unwanted Organisms Are a Natural Part of Life
We get them from pets, organic produce, from kids playing in dirt. Most often they are passed from one individual to another through the hands of someone who prepares our food. The eggs of these organisms get stuck under fingernails and around the cuticle bed. If one is not washing hands properly, see Bioray suggestions for proper hand washing below, we are generally redistributing them among ourselves. These have been recognized as a potential health issue even back to ancient Egyptians. By observing and following the suggestions here, you have a greater opportunity for keeping them away. Besides the health benefits, your family will be happier for it as well :).
Clinical Tip: How to Wash Hands the Right Way
- Wet hands with clean, running water and apply soap.
- Rub hands together, lather them well. Be sure to include the backs of hands and between fingers.
- With one hand, take the index finger and go around each cuticle and under each nail bed of the opposite hand. This is crucial, as we see eggs from unwanted organisms left under nail beds and around cuticles with the "simplified" hand washing which is common for most people.
- Continue rubbing hands for at least 20 seconds. You can tell kids to hum the "Happy Birthday" song from beginning to end, twice.
- Rinse hands well under running water.
- Dry hands using a clean towel or air dry them. If you are in a public bathroom, use a drying towel to grip the door handle. Dispose neatly in closest trash bin.
Foods that support the removal of unwanted organisms:
- Pumpkin seeds
- Cayenne pepper
- Foods that are alkalizing and warming
