Nip, I wrote a lot of messages on Skype for you. Beverley
I spent over an hour on my reply to you and it disappeared. Will try again later, but that REALLY bugs me when something like that happens. I think my laptop needs work.
Are you on Skype? Maybe we could talk that way. Id is leenott23
Hi, am still taking Artemisinin, and will continue for a while yet.
Have had some weird detox effects, the worst about a month ago, almost like a last gasp by the ailment (will not name it, gives it energy! )
I felt awful, no energy, moving from one chair to another was exhausting, but it is WAY better now, and can actually do more, but that detox -if that is what it was, lasted about a month. Artemisinin kills off a LOT of cells VERY quickly and the body has to remove the toxins, so I guess this is what the detox was. Also effected my bladder for a day over the last 3 months, one day per course (10 days on Art., 3 days off)
I also take Bicarb, have done almost from the start, 1 tsp in water first thing in morning and if what I read is correct about c---- not surviving in an alkaline system, then I must be pretty OK, as I have kept it around 8 for the suggested 10 days.
Am also taking Lugols Iodine, 7 drops along with Tumeric Extract and a lung tonic.
I also discovered a great Chinese medicine which does wonders for congestion. Ban Xia Hou Po Tang.
This has been an interesting journey, one I never expected to take as I have always been so healthy (did smoke until I was 50) literally never got sick, haven't been to a doctor for 40 years ( until April last year)
I am on the mend now, but it has a lot to do with state of mind. Until recently I didn't care, now I do and it's showing. We MUST care and love ourselves first and foremost and I didn't over the last 3 years and really beat myself up.
I hope this helps. If you have a problem, what I am doing helps me. Not saying it is a cure all for everyone, but certainly has helped me. Am happy to keep you updated!
