Black Walnut Hulls are very strongly antiviral and antifungal. My favorite use of Black Walnut is to fight ringworm and other skin infestations and sores. It is very effective at killing the “critters” which are causing the problem, but is also an excellent herb for wound healing. Black Walnut can also be used as a douche to fight vaginal yeast. The mature hulls are said to be stronger but I sometimes use the green hulls in order to avoid the staining of skin and clothing that occurs with the mature—and very black—hulls.

Black Walnut is reputed to expel worms and parasites and it does, but, in my opinion, it also strips the intestinal tract. I think there are better, less invasive ways to get rid of most parasites. There is a small percentage of Black Walnut in the APL and FN (antifungal) formulas. In these quantities and proportions it is both extremely effective and perfectly safe.

Black Walnut Leaf

As with any other herb that is used in more than one form (leaf and fruit), the properties of Black Walnut Hulls and Black Walnut Leaves are similar in many respects. With Black Walnut, however, the hulls are much stronger than the leaf, making the leaf a little bit safer for internal use. You get the other benefits without so much of the cleansing effects.
