The winner is… Artemisia! (Dr. med. Heinz Lüscher)

The winner is… Artemisia! (Dr. med. Heinz Lüscher)

The Artemisia plant (Artemisia annua) is inconspicuous, almost a weed. But she has it all! When, at the end of the 1960s, the malaria drugs commonly used at the time were no longer effective because the malaria pathogen was becoming increasingly resistant, the Chinese researcher Youyou Tu turned to traditional Chinese medicine and looked for alternatives there. This is how she came across Artemisia annua and extracted the active ingredient artemisin from it. It has since been used in antimalarial drugs and has saved many lives. Tu received the 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine for this discovery.

Works against influenza

However, as is often the case with individual substances, there is also a risk with artemisin that the malaria pathogen will also become resistant to this active substance. If, on the other hand, the entire plant is used, this is much less likely because Artemisia annua contains at least 9 other substances that are effective against malaria. The tiny plasmodia that cause malaria are much less able to defend themselves against this concentrated load. But Artemisia can do much more. Its antiviral and antibacterial properties have been shown repeatedly. Artemisia powder or tea, for example, can be used to effectively combat influenza. If you take 4 x 1.2 g artemisia powder daily at the first sign, you have a good chance of surviving the disease after 1-2 days.

Skin cancer: OP repeatedly cancelled

The feedback from patients who use Artemisia for white skin cancer or conspicuous moles is very impressive. A man had to be cut out of skin cancer three times on his bald head. When a suspicious change arose again, he was scheduled for an operation in about 7 weeks. In the meantime he rubbed his scalp 2 to 3 times a day with an Artemisia cream. Result: His dermatologist couldn't find the spot he wanted to cut out! Another patient had an approx. 5 mm large, white skin growth on her cheek and also got an appointment for surgery after unsuccessful attempts at freezing. In the meantime, she too treated herself with an Artemisia cream. Completely amazed, she reports that she was able to remove the tumor like a crust after about 2 weeks. To be on the safe side, the dermatologist froze again, but was able to refrain from an operation in this case as well. A third patient noticed that a new, itchy and repeatedly bleeding birthmark was growing relatively quickly above her right collarbone. She was aware that she had to show this to her doctor as soon as possible. Then she took artemisia powder for 9 days because of a bad flu. To her great surprise and relief, the mole disappeared with the flu, and permanently!

Artemisia as last hope for encephalitis

The case of a woman who was prescribed antibiotics because of acutely inflamed diverticula seems rather unusual. Despite her doctor's concerns, she decided to try Artemisia first. After 3 days, her inflammation values ​​were already massively reduced and the doctor encouraged her to continue with Artemisia. I also know of a case of brain inflammation in which other medications failed, which completely disappeared after 10 days with Artemisia. Finally, there are also great results in neurodermatitis. The Artemisia cream has repeatedly turned out to be an effective alternative to creams containing cortisone.

Do not take with food

It is important for everyone who wants to try Artemisia to know: Artemisia must be taken outside of meals, ideally 1 hour before eating. It is not suitable for preventive use and is normally not taken for longer than 2 weeks. For malaria prophylaxis you have to take 3 x 1.2 g Artemisia powder daily 1 day before the start of the trip up to 20 days after the trip. There are no known side effects. The only contraindications are gastric ulcers and gastric hyperacidity.
