Artemisinin (From Artemisia annua) and Covid, Cancer, Arthritis, Lupus, AIDS, A Possible Solution Due to Its Broad Spectrum Antiviral Effect?

Artemisinin, an extract from the plant Artemisia annua, was discovered by Chinese Nobel Laureate Ms. Youyou Tu for the treatment of resistant malaria. Recently, it has been discovered that it has curative effect against the Covid-19 viruses, in addition to its promising effects on cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Artemisia annua and Covid, Cancer, Arthritis, Lupus, A Possible Solution Due to Its Broad Spectrum Antiviral EffectThe Discovery of Artemisinin

Ms. Youyou Tu discovered artemisinin for malaria after finding a reference to sweet wormwood that had been used in China around 400 AD to treat "intermittent fevers," a symptom of malaria. After failing to extract the active ingredient compound by boiling in water (as high temperature damages artemisinin), she successfully extracted it with an ether-based solvent, which boils at a lower temperature.

Artemisinin and Covid Viruses (Artemisia annua and the Covid-19 Viruses)

Studies referenced in the papers such as "Artemisia and Artemisia-based products for COVID-19 management: current state and future perspective", "Safety and efficacy of artemisinin-piperaquine for treatment of COVID-19: an open-label, non-randomised and controlled trial", and "Artemisia annua L. extracts inhibit the in vitro replication of SARS-CoV-2 and two of its variants" (all from the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health website) all show that artemisinin and other derivative compounds are effective against different strains of the Covid viruses, and that artemisia-based products have a broad spectrum of biological ability including antiviral properties.

Artemisinin and Cancer

In "Artemisinin as an anticancer drug: Recent advances in target profiling and mechanisms of action", and "Artemisinin and its derivatives in cancer therapy: status of progress, mechanism of action, and future perspectives" (both from the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health website), artemisinin and its derivatives are shown to have effects against a wide range of cancer types both in vitro and in vivo. Although the mechanisms of action are yet to be confirmed, artemisinin cancer protocols can be found on the Internet, suggesting patients to take artemisinin on an empty stomach, and in the evenings, as cancer is most active at night.

Anthony William, the Medical Medium, states that almost all forms of cancer (except mesothelioma, which is caused solely by asbestos) are caused by the combination and interactions of certain types of viruses and toxins. This explains the reason why some people do not have cancer even though they smoked most of their life (because they don't have the right type of cancer-causing virus), and why some people died of cancer even though they never smoked (because they have the cancer-causing virus and other types of toxins). People familiar with Anthony William know that he has certain abilities that others don't have, and millions of people have been healed by him, including medical doctors and Hollywood celebrities.  Further validating his information, the American Cancer Society lists "chemical carcinogens" and "viruses and other infections" as causes of cancer.  They have yet to realize that it is the combination and interactions of the two that triggers the formation of malignant tumors in our body.

Therefore, artemisinin, with its broad spectrum antiviral effects, eliminates one of the most critical causes of cancer, will surely have anticancer results.  If combined with the detox method detailed in Covid-19 Vaccine Detox (Opinion Article: Detox Methods if You Have Covid Vaccine Side Effects) , it will surely have more remarkable effects as the toxins are also flushed out of the body.

Artemisinin and Arthritis

One study showed that artemisinin has therapeutic benefits to rheumatoid arthritis (See Artemisinin analogue SM934 attenuate collagen-induced arthritis by suppressing T follicular helper cells and T helper 17 cells). Conventional western doctors believe that rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the issues in the immune system when it mistakenly attacks the healthy tissues of the joint.  However, Anthony William attributes arthritis to the existence of viruses around the joints, causing the immune system to attack them. He believes that the immune system is not attacking the healthy tissues, but the viruses (i.e. the Epstein-Barr Virus, or EBV) in those tissues. (Test your viral counts next time when you have rheumatoid arthritis).  Therefore, the key for a thorough recovery from rheumatoid arthritis is to suppress the viral count, not the immune system that attacks the viruses. If artemisinin is a broad spectrum antiviral agent, it is not difficult to see that it should also be effective against rheumatoid arthritis, which is exactly the case.

Artemisinin and Lupus

A paper titled "Artemisinins-a Promising New Treatment for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: a Descriptive Review" suggests that artemisinins have potential beneficial effects for systemic lupus erythematosus in both clinical and animal studies. While conventional medicine states that the exact cause of lupus is unknown, Anthony William, the medical medium, maintains that lupus is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus.  In fact, lupus is an allergic reaction to the virus's waste matter: dermatoxins (hence the skin issues so commonly associated with lupus), neurotoxins, byproduct, and viral corpses. The inflammation, result of hypersensitivity of the body to the waste matters of the Epstein-Barr virus, elevates homocysteine levels, triggering false positives on gene mutation tests. Therefore, when the viruses are cleaned up, the gene mutation tests would go back to to normal. Again, if artemisinin is a broad spectrum antiviral agent, it will be effective against systemic lupus erythematosus too.

Artemisia annua and HIV (AIDS)

A paper titled "Ethnopharmacology in overdrive: the remarkable anti-HIV activity of Artemisia annua" indicates that artemisia annua tea infusion has inhibitive effects on HIV, with IC(50) values as low as 2.0 μg/mL. (2.0 μg/mL of artemisia annua tea infusion could inhibit HIV by 50%). No cellular toxicity was seen for the tea infusion at the highest concentrations tested. This is the first published in vitro evidence of anti-HIV activity of the Artemisia annua tea infusion.

Artemisinin and Other Diseases Caused by Viruses

Besides Covid-19, cancer, arthritis, and lupus, there are other diseases that are caused by viruses according to Anthony William. These include most of the so-called autoimmune diseases (your immune system is not attacking your healthy tissues, but the viruses in these tissues), chronic fatigue syndrome (the culprit is the Epstein-Barr Virus), fibromyalgia (caused by the Epstein-Barr Virus), Lyme disease (viruses and heavy metals), multiple sclerosis (herpes virus and heavy metals), thyroid disorders (Epstein-Barr Virus), and vertigo and tinnitus (both caused by viral infections).

If artemisinin is shown to be a broad spectrum antiviral agent effective against the different strains of the Covid-19 virus, herpes virus, Epstein-Barr virus, HIV virus, etc, then it will bring the most promising benefits to mankind.

Artemisinin and Type 2 Diabetes

In a paper titled "The Potential Roles of Artemisinin and Its Derivatives in the Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus", it summarizes the potential therapeutic effects and mechanism of artemisinin and its derivatives in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and associated complications, indicating that artemisinin treatments not only attenuate insulin resistance and restore islet ß-cell function in Type 2 Diabetes but also have potential therapeutic effects on diabetic complications, including diabetic kidney disease, cognitive impairment, diabetic retinopathy, and diabetic cardiovascular disease, as many in vitro and in vivo experiments have confirmed the therapeutic utility of artemisinin and its derivatives on Type 2 Diabetes.

Planting Artemisia annua

If Artemisia annua has potentials for such wide scope of applications, why not plant it? One study shows that the active antiviral components in the Artemisia annua extracts are likely something besides artemisinin or a combination of components.  Therefore, it may also be beneficial to drink the tea of the plant artemisia annua, not just the artemisinin extract.

Artemisia annua prefers sunny and warm conditions, with optimal growth temperature between 20 to 25 C. It takes 4 to 10 days for the seeds to germinate, and between 190 to 240 days to harvest. Artemisinin is found in the glandular trichomes of the leaves, stems and inflorescences, and is concentrated in the upper portions of Artemisia annua within new growth. During extraction of artemisinin, a low boiling point solvent, such as diethylether, is used.

Since there are many species within the artemisia genus, please be sure to have the Artemisia annua seeds when you plant them.  Other artemisia species may not have the active ingredient artemisinin.
