Artemisinin – A Completely Natural Way to Eliminate Cancer!
The extract of sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua) contains large amounts of artemisinin – active ingredient formerly known as arteannuin. In the last couple of years, many scientific studies have included sweet wormwood extract as a way to fight aggressive forms of cancer.
It is a well known fact that sweet wormwood was used since ancient time. Chinese people have used it against fevers, parasites, malaria and other diseases and conditions for more than 2000 years. Artemisinin which is a derivative of sweet wormwood is currently being tested in few sophisticated labs and so far this herb has provided some amazing results when it comes to elimination of cancer cells.
At the same time cells which are healthy remain unaffected. Before we go into details it is good to mention that sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua) should not be confused with Artemisia absinthum, another plant from the Artemisia family which is known as a good remedy for digestive problems.
According to Dr. Henry Lai and Dr. Narendra Singh from the University of Washington, the good news is that artemisinin is not effective only on one type of cancer – it works for wide range of cancers especially for those who are usually described as aggressive like colon cancer, lung cancer and leukemia.
The positive effects of artemisinin were confirmed in cases of ovarian cancer, melanoma, prostate cancer and brain tumor too. Of course, these results were announced after long scientific studies.
The efficiency of this herb can be explained in a simple way. Through these series of scientific researches it was proven that cells affected by cancer have increased levels of iron in them. On the other hand, artemisinin reacts in contact with iron. This reaction leads to release of free radicals which eliminate these damaged cancer-affected cells in a very short period of time while avoiding the cells which are healthy.
To put it in simple words, use of artemisinin doesn’t come with any side effects. The reaction between artemisinin was known for a long time, because artemisinin was used for treatment of malaria too. The parasites of malaria can’t procreate in an envrionemnt where artemisinin is present because they have high amounts of iron.
According to recent studies published in Life Science magazine, artemisnin can kill 98% of breast cancer cells in less than 16 hours! This is another proof that the test which was conducted by Dr. Lai few years ago was correct. Dr. Lai, has used an artemisinin treatment on a dog suffering from bone cancer. After 5 days the cancer was completely removed and the pet was fully recovered.
If you are planning to use artemisinin on your own, you should carefully read the instructions and avoid using semi-synthetic artemisinin which is also available on the market.
