Walnuts are very kind to your arteries; they contain good, healthy fats. I’ve talked about their virtues before. I was surprised to learn that the Black walnut tincture, made from ground green walnut hulls, is also a health powerhouse.

I knew that the hulls served as a natural antibiotic; my dentist recommended them a few years back after I had some dental work done. The great thing about its use as an antibiotic is that it doesn’t mess up the friendly flora in your gut. Using Black Walnut also serves to control blood sugar, and is used to get rid of any worms or parasites in the blood.

I’ve recently started using Black Walnut again because of an infected parotid gland. The parotid gland is located on the side of your face near the jaw line and ear. It is one of the three salivary glands on each side of your mouth; you may remember the swollen parotid gland from the childhood disease, the Mumps. Long story short, since using Black Walnut oil, I’ve discovered another use; wart removal.

I had a wart on my finger, the first wart I’ve had in many years. Since warts are viral, burning them off is only a bandage; you need to get rid of the virus. I’ve been using Black Walnut oil for about 4 weeks, and noticed a couple of days ago, it’s gone. I don’t know what else to attribute it to. I’ll keep you posted……

Stay well, John R Blilie, M.S.
