The herb Chanca Piedra is commonly used to expel mites and worms from the body. It is also very supportive of the liver and has positive overflow into many other areas of health.

This herbal choice is a better alternative than some varieties of wormwood which have demonstrated significant hepatoxicity.

"The essential oils extracted from argy wormwood leaf by different methods may have not only different chemical composition, but also different acute hepatotoxicity, and monoterpenes and benzenes in the essential oils might induce acute hepatotoxicity."

Chanca Piedra is actually translated as "break stone" as it is also used to remove kidney stones.

It is commonly available in tincture form from the manufacturer, herb-pharm under the name "stone breaker".

The above information sheet lists some of it's uses and among these are;

"scabies (itch)" and "skin diseases"

Another informative link offers this information;

"(expels worms and other parasites from the intestinal tract)"

If you do actually have a mite infection this would be a good choice to add to your regimen. You need to consider the other pathogens that mites carry and transfer to humans during the mite infection as well. Unfortunately getting rid of those infections takes a more comprehensive approach.
