I have begun on "Artemesia" (that's what it says on the box), by NurtiCology (supposed to be a good brand) on the 8th of March. The content of the tablets are "Sweet wordwood (Leaves) Extract 30:1, 500mg".
I have got better (very noticeably) since Thursday last week (the 24th of March), and I am still getting better.
I am not 100% sure it's the Artemesia causing this. But if it is, then I think it's really two ways it may work.
A PhD from Maryland (F. Dickerson) has begun trying out Artemisinin against a retrovirus. I am not sure how it works (or might work), or why it might work. But that's what she's doing, so I guess there is some rationale in it: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/show...v-but-herv-k-!&p=163194&viewfull=1#post163194
It might be that it has a good effect on harmful gut microbes (as discussed here
, the microbes, not the Artemisinin). I see on the box that Artemisinin is supposed to help with that. This quote can be found on boxes from all producers, but I can't find a source for it " Research has shown artemisinin to be particularly beneficial in balancing the microbiology of the GI tract."
For those unfamiliar with Artemisinin; it's not just a herb used in alternative medicine. Just like we use opiates (which comes from a plant) for pain, or penicillin (many of which come from fungi) for infections, we use Artemisinin for malaria. Well, it's only in the third world, but it's a recommended drug from the WHO (UN's World Health Organization) against malaria. So it's a drug which works. Only we don't know if it works against either retroviruses or problems with the gut.
