Will using peppermint tea do the trick


Internal parasites like tapeworms usually lives in the lower part of the digestive system (small and large intestines) that competes in the absorption of nutrients that comes from the digested food. There are numerous effective home remedies that are widely used to properly kill and expel internal parasites and one of them is the peppermint tea. Peppermint tea is one of the most effective natural herbal remedy in expelling internal parasites because of its natural anti-parasitic (vermifuge) properties that kills and slows down the growth of internal parasites like tapeworms and hookworms. Peppermint tea is also a natural herbal remedy used to treat nausea, bloating (gas pain) and indigestion. Drink a cup of warm peppermint tea twice a day (one cup in the morning and one cup in the evening) for a period of five to seven days. For better result, add one tablespoon of virgin coconut oil into the cup of warm peppermint tea and you can see the immediate result in as few as three to four days because coconut oil contain capryllic and lauric acids which are also effective in expelling internal parasites.
