Artemisinin - Wormwood, Artemisia Absinthium


In June of 2022, I was sick as a dog with the new Cov 'variant', 2 weeks in and not getting better, I am 71, have stage1 emphysema, and a number of autoimmune disorders, lupus, auto immune liver disease, Sjogren's disease, etc..

It was 3 am and I was on earthclinic, desperate to find something that could help eradicate this thing in my body. At that time, I found 1 post on Wormwood Annua, and how it worked for this woman. I suddenly thought, I think I may have some in my cupboard, got up and found it! But it was not the Wormwood Annua recommended, it was called Wormwood, Artemisia absinthium. I was dispirited so I opened one cap and put it in warm/hot water and drank it down and went back to sleep.

I awoke at 8am and I had absolutely no symptoms. No more fever, no sweats, no pain traveling in my brain, no cloud feeling in my head, no body pain, no difficulty breathing, and the extreme fatigue was gone! So I immediately gave it to my son who was just beginning to recover but still felt ill, and my sister who only had covid for 4 days. All of us were well within 5 hours! We did not need to take more than one opened cap in warm water, then volia, we were are well! I just wanted to pass this on as it also apparently kills the common flu if you get it. Keep Wormwood in your home for emergencies, there is no reason to feel ill for more than a day or 2 any more. Yaaiii Wormwood! :)

However this varriant does seem to create damage in the body, so though you will feel great, and you will know the virus or whatever it is will be out of your body, you may have residual damage such as low energy for an addl. week, a lingering cough w phlem, or in my case no cough, but I had to force infection out of my lungs by choking it up for an additional week, but knew absolutely that the virus was gone and I was dealing with a secondary infection. I also read your article on high dose melatonin, to fix the damage and it seemed to work within a week.

I really can't understand why the US President is taking Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). This drug has been recently undergone several high-profile trials (that have been completely ignored by the US media) both in China and the US. In 11 research papers on HCQ, it was found that HCQ was causing serious retinopathy problems (eye problems) as well as adverse heart events (heart attacks) which is why those 11 pieces of research did not recommend HCQ for COVID-19.

It's also well-known that HCQ is an anti-malarial drug that is normally taken together with Artemisinin in Asia.

Artemisinin has a unique way of killing pathogens -- including viruses. Artemisinin contains a weak peroxide bridge which, when it enters the pathogen, will immediately react strongly to the iron stores within the pathogen. Most pathogens, including viruses, are voracious for iron and have high stores of iron. When Artemisinin reacts with the iron, it produces excess hydrogen peroxide as a by-product within the pathogen, which immediately acts to destroy and kill the pathogen quickly.

So if it were me, I really wouldn't give HCQ leg room but instead I would always prefer to take Artemisinin at 500mgs once a day. Artemisinin, being a natural plant chemical -- not a patented drug -- with a long history of anti-malarial use, is also far safer with a fairly high safety profile.

Thank you so much for all your posts. I just started getting back out into the world and checked earth clinic for immune system builders and other help. I've spent hours going over your posts and Ted's and other comments.

Yesterday, (9/4/20) I found out a man in our Bible Study class tested positive for Covid. I am currently waiting on results from my test.

I just had started alkalizing again and implementing ideas from the posts on earth clinic just this week. Would you mind reviewing this to see if I got it right? Is this too much? What do you suggest?

I alkalize 2 or 3 times a day with this ACV recipe, 30-45 minutes before or after meals.

In a about ¼ cup water I mix the first two until the fizzing stops.

  • ¼ tsp Vitamin C,
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda

Then I add

  • 2 TBSP ACV,
  • 1 tsp MSM,

and increase water to about 8 oz

I add a dash of salt to help minimize the stomach upset.

I just started taking Lugol's Iodine – building up to 12.5 mg per day and have added the companion nutrients either separately or in my Multi Vitamin.

B complex every 2 days

Selenium 200-400 mcg per day,

Magnesium 400-1200 mg per day,

Zinc 25 mgs per day

Vitamin C 3,000 – 10,000 per day

I add Quercetic (800 mg) with Bromelain (165 mg), and Astragalus Root (400 mg).

In the mornings I drink coffee with 1 TBSP coconut oil and take 1 tsp Black Cumin Seed Oil, and 2 tsp Hemp Seed Oil. My first cup of coffee is regular and 2nd cup is decaf. (usually only 2 in the morning and 1 during the day or at night each with 1 TBSP Coconut Oil)

I also just started your Mineral Water drink.

  • 1/2 teaspoon natural sea salt,
  • 1/8 tspn borax, for women)
  • 1/4 teaspoon epsom salts
  • 1 litre of water,

Drink this over a couple of days.

4 days a week and rest 3 days

I am careful not to take Lugol's Iodine with borax. I take Lugol's in the morning and the Mineral Drink throughout the afternoon.

Either you or Ted mentioned that you take your supplements in bulk. That would be quite difficult for me as the sheer number of nutrients is overwhelming.

I'm having a difficult time finding multi-vitamins without magnesium stearate. Would you be so kind as to address this issue with any suggestions as to the best multi to take (if that's allowed to mention)?

Also I don't feel like I have Covid, but I'm wondering if I should get Artemisinin and take it anyway. I appreciate your suggestions on this one too.

Last question, my friend who has Covid won't go for all this that I'm doing, what would be the best suggestion for him if he will only do one thing? (They sent him home with Tylenol.)

Thank you for your response and for your patience for this long read.

Update. My Covid test result was positive.

What do I need to add to the protocol I posted yesterday?

EC: Please read Art's posts in the Melatonin section of the coronavirus page.

Mary Lou

Thank you so much EC. I'd missed the Melatonin Section. Great Read. I have decided to order melatonin.

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) should be accompanied by ZINC to be effective.

HCQ destroys the film surrounding the virus, and zinc disables the virus. Those studies on HCQ that say it's not effective do not mention zinc.

This is not correct.

The following study from November 2020 shows that zinc was not additive to HCQ for Covid-19 :

Here is a quote from the study:

>>>' Zinc supplements did not enhance the clinical efficacy of HCQ. '<<<
