Sweet Wormwood (herb)

Sweet Wormwood (herb)

"Professor Henry Lai and Assistant Professor Narendra Singh of the University of Washington have been conducting in vitro experiments to determine the effectiveness of Artemisinin [the active ingredient in sweet wormwood] in fighting cancer. A study concerning their research published in the Journal Life Sciences described how the compound killed virtually all human breast cancer cells exposed to it within sixteen hours. According to Dr. Lai, “Not only does it appear to be effective, but it's very selective.” He continued “it´s highly toxic to the cancer cells, but has a marginal impact on normal breast cells.” The UN and UNICEF refused to allow sweet wormwood to treat malaria, for which it is a cure, until it could be combined with a profitable pharmaceutical drug. Chalk up a several million more deaths to Big Pharma's greed and government corruption. Since malaria is a parasite, this plant could give credibility to the theory of some that cancer is caused by a parasite.

Artemisinin, the key ingredient
obtained from Artemisia annua, has a
long history of use as an antimalarial
remedy. Artemisia annua, or "sweet
wormwood," is mentioned in the Recipes
For 52 Kinds Of Diseases found in the
Mawangdui Han Dynasty tomb, dating
from 168 B.C. In that work, the herb is
recommended for use for hemorrhoids. It
is also mentioned in the Zhou Hou Bei Ji
Fang (Handbook of Prescriptions for
Emergency Treatments) written in 340
A.D. The major active principal was first
isolated in 1972, and investigators at the
Walter Reed Army Institute of Research
located and crystallized the active
component in 1984.'
Artemisinin and two synthetic
derivatives, artemether and sodium
artesunate, were evaluated in the 1970s.
A number of the tropical countries have
conducted trials. In China in 1979,
wherein 2,099 patients infected with P.
viva and P. falciparum, artemisinin had
good therapeutic effects £ind improved or
cured all patients. Furthermore, the
treatment with eirtemisinin was without
any obvious side effects. Artemisinin is
also effective in cerebral malaria. Body
temperature of patients normalized
within 72 hours, emd asexual parasites
were eliminated within 72 hours.
However, there was a relapse rate of
In clinical trials in Vietnam, children
aged one to 15 years were randomly
selected to receive artemisinin
suppositories or oral quinine. The results
indicated that the suppositories rapidly
cleared asexual P.
Falciparium
parasitemia in children and confirmed
the problem reoccurrence rates.^
Artemisinin has been extensively
researched for malaria and has been used
on over a million patients, mostly in
China and Vietnam. It is very helpful for
drug-resistant maleiria. Extensive review
articles documenting the extensive
testing that has been done are
available.*^
