Malaria / Artemisin / Wormwood

Resurrecting this old project to get some useful malaria medicine.

Here’s another study I just found:
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15109558/
This time with a 74% full cure rate, using tea made from artemisia annua. Others, including old ones referred to below, are up to 90%.

[2021-12-02] I found a supplier in the USA of a tincture,
https://www.herb-pharm.com/product/wormwood/
I have emailed them to check that they will be able to post it to Kenya.
Got a reply, don’t ship international but iherb does. There is a link to their live chat (10a.m. to 6p.m) here.

I’d be inclined to use the natural extracts over a single synthetic chemical when both are proven to have worked.


Old stuff is below for reference. Some links may still work, I will check later.

I tried to find a source. Evans is having trouble getting it. There are plenty of sources online but most look a little dodgy. I found one that looks ok but it is difficult to understand.

Evans if you can figure it out how to make up a safe dose, let me know. Otherwise I will ask around and we will make a page for it with a more understandable explanation of how to prepare a solution, or whatever we need to do…!

it seems from this stuff below, that there is at least one plant that is at least as effective against malaria as the ‘best’ drugs, if not superior to them in some circumstances. Thus it makes sense for people with little money to look into this and start growing these plants themselves. There are sure to be medical professionals in the places where such people live who will be open minded enough to help people ensure that they try these out safely.

In brief, there are many varieties of wormwood but only Artemisa annua has the anti-malarial properties. And this from the nutrimed website: “Annual wormwood (Artemisia annua) has been used effectively in treating patients infected with the intestinal protozoa G. lamblia and E. histolytica, (7) as well as parasites associated with malaria. Clinical studies demonstrated a 100% cure rate in 485 cases of tertian malaria and a 92.7% cure rate in 105 cases of subtertian cerebral malaria. In another series of 2099 malaria patients infected with p. falciparum or p. vivax, Artemisia produced a cure in every case. It’s active principle, artemisinin inhibits the enzyme cytochrome oxidase which the parasite needs to maintain its various membranes.(8 – for references see the page.)
