Infections and excesses of yeasts are common in humans in the west. Some 70% of humans have excesses at some point in their lives. Excesses are caused when the commensal bacteria (good helpful bacteria) of the gut are compromised and fail to deal with the yeasts. At night in a healthy individual 2.2 pounds (nearly 1kg) of yeasts are consumed by commensal bacteria. These helpful bacteria can be damaged and their numbers reduced by antibiotics, drugs (especially proton pump inhibitors) and the changing of pH in the gut through consuming too much sugar, salt, pickled food or alcohol. The most damaging effects are though caused by stress. Sweet Wormwood appears to act in two different ways against yeast, one is by attacking the mitochondrial membrane producing free radicals and the other is interfering with ATPs which are dependent calcium transporters within the mitochondria.
Sweet Wormwood is also good at killing parasites. This is because artemisia annua is very affective at killing a group of blood flukes or Schistosomas. These are the second most common parasite in the world after malaria. They are Trematodes and all Trematodes like pin worms, roundworms and more can be killed by Sweet Wormwood.
When killing parasites Sweet Wormwood seems to act on 124 different targets. It is actually a super-herb. It acts in many ways. One of Artemisia annuas properties is its sequiterpenes, which play a huge role in human health as they reduce inflammation and tumour formation. This herb will also disrupt the cell walls of fungi and invasive bacteria. E.coli has now been found present in breast cancer and colon cancer tissue so the anti-microbial action makes Sweet Wormwood a potent caner preventer and high quality research has shown that Sweet Wormwood does infact kill microbes like E.coli and salmonella.
There is clear research that Sweet Wormwood kills cancer cells on its own or especially when bound to iron. Sweet Wormwood reacts with the iron to make free radicals. Cancer cells require a large amount of iron to proliferate. In order to pick up iron they have large numbers of transfirin receptors. Cancer cells are also more susceptible to the cytotoxic effect of the Sweet Wormwood than healthy cells. The research team covalently tagged transfirin to the Sweet Wormwood; the Sweet Wormwood was then picked up in much greater quantities by the cancer cells and large numbers were killed. The conclusion was that transfirin tagged Sweet Wormwood was selectively picked up by cancer cells and this would provide the basis for powerful anti-cancer drugs. Since many cancers are preceded by gut problems leading to frequent, long courses of antibiotics or drugs for recurrent illnesses, Sweet Wormwood is always a herb to consider.
Artemisia annua or sweet wormwood is a powerful herb found from Pakistan to China (where it is called Qinghao su). The highest concentration of active ingredient is found in the leaves, flowers and roots.
Malaria kills over 1 million people each year across the world. Artemisia annua is the most effective treatment especially as the potency of certain drugs has continued to fail. The exact method of action is not yet fully understood but it appears to attack the membranes of the malaria mitochondria.
Sweet Wormwood is powerful stuff, and should be used in short bursts and rarely for more than 8 weeks, although anti malarial doses have shown no side effects.
Take two 5ml teaspoons morning and evening with a cold juice chaser for no more than 8 weeks every day.
