Wormwood is a time-honored remedy for strengthening the stomach and gallbladder. It is especially popular in Europe, where it is commonly prescribed for people with painful digestion (dyspeptics). It has been used as a bitter to stimulate bile, to increase the appetite, and to expel worms. Wormwood is used in Chinese medicine to clear summer heat, for lingering fevers, and for nosebleeds.
