Artemisinin is a chemical compound in a traditional Chinese herb called Artemisia annua, or sweet wormwood. Some research suggests that it may show promise in future cancer treatments.
Research indicates that the compound could inhibit the growth of tumors and metastasis.
Artemisinin is a natural Chinese herb that aggressively fights cancer. In a recent study published by Life Sciences, it was found that artemisinin (the derivative), coupled with Iron, can kill 98% of breast cancer cells in 16 hours.
Donald, a 47-year-old mechanic who is in great shape had a newly diagnosed lymphoma and came to see Dr. Rowen just after his oncologist had biopsied the tumor. There was an ugly egg-sized mass on the left side of his head with a gaping hole from the biopsy and an angry redness from inflammation.
Here is what Robert Jay Rowen M.D. reported: “Immediately put him on a derivative of this Chinese herb, and he took it for two weeks. At the end of that time, the lump developed a little depression in the center, but the perimeter had grown just slightly. Dejected that it didn’t significantly regress, he elected to stop further use of the product and take a “wait and see” approach. Four weeks later, I received a call from Donald. The tumor was gone! Returning with his wife and a big smile a few days later, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The skin was smooth, no mass was present, and the angry redness was fading fast.
At about the same time, I continued to follow a long-term patient, a delightful 47-year-old female with stage-4 breast cancer. Diane was diagnosed only two years before with the promise of “we got it all” at her mastectomy. When she came to me, she had developed metastases in her spine, which caused her to limp. A cancer-induced fracture in her vertebrae gave her significant pain and prevented her from performing the duties of her job. All the conventional doctors could offer was full-dose chemotherapy at a horrific toll on the quality of her life, but they also confided honestly that there was no hope it would lead to a cure. She chose alternatives instead, receiving insulin potentiation therapy (IPT), high-dose nutritional therapy, dietary changes, dendritic cell vaccine, multi-step oxygen therapy, and more. All of her symptoms regressed, but the CT showed no change. After a short course of artemisinin derivatives, she reported back to me that physically she couldn’t tell she had ever had cancer. She felt totally well. The CT scan showed regression, but there was no way to tell if the remaining lesion was a tumor or healing scar tissue. Results like this with absolutely no toxicity are simply amazing by any standards, convention or unconventional.
In this article, we look at the evidence behind artemisinin as a potential cancer treatment, how people use it, and its possible side effects.
Artemisinin is a compound derived from the sweet wormwood plant, which practitioners of Chinese medicine often use.
Sweet wormwood is native to Asia. It has fern-like leaves and yellow flowers. People have usually used this plant in traditional and homeopathic treatments for:
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommendTrusted Source a form of artemisinin for treating severe malaria.
Some researchers believe that artemisinin interacts with iron to form free radicals in the body. Free radicals are compounds that kill cells. Cancerous cells absorb a lot of iron, which makes them potentially much more susceptible to damage from these free radicals.
A group of researchers looked at all of the research, conducted between 1983 and 2018, into the effects of artemisinin and its derivatives on cancer, and they reported the followingTrusted Source:
Several studies suggest that artemisinin and its synthetic forms can target cancer cells when combined with chemotherapy.
Artemisinin may produce fewer side effects than traditional cancer treatments.
Study sizes tended to be small, which means that their results are less reliable.
Researchers need further studies to know how safe artemisinin is for humans and how artemisinin affects cancer cells.
They also need further studies to determine how artemisinin interacts with cancer drugs.
A 2015 reviewTrusted Source, which looked at 127 investigations into the effects of antimalarials on cancer, also suggested that artemisinin could have anticancer properties. It similarly notes that there has not yet been enough research in humans to understand the true effects.
Another research paper, published in 2012, identified potential benefits to using artemisinin in cancer treatments.
The authors reported that simple compounds of artemisinin are less potent and break down more quickly than traditional cancer treatments. This could mean that people who use this therapy in the future require high, frequent doses.
Despite the lack of high-quality, large-scale research into the effects of artemisinin on cancer in humans, some scientists remain hopeful.
How do people use artemisinin?
As a medicine, the most common forms of artemisinin include:
creams or other forms applied topically
Some people use 4.5 to 9 grams of the dried Artemisia annua herb in boiling water as a tea infusion to help treat fever and malaria. Others use 100 to 200 milligrams of artemisinin, in combination with other therapies, to treat the disease.
Before starting the artemesia therapy, it would be most important to test your iron levels (ferritin – normal range serum ferritin normally ranges from 12 to 150 ng/dL while men range from 12ng/dL to 300ng/dL, or nanograms per deciliter and a normal hemoglobin ranges from 11.1g/dL to 15g/dL.). Also, CBC, reticulocyte count, liver function test, TIBC, ESR, C reactive protein, and appropriate tumor markers. If the iron load is low, supplementing iron for a few days can be considered prior to starting artemisinin by consuming ½ cup of liquid chlorophyll (sold in most Health shops). Excessive iron levels are not healthy and so additional iron supplements would only be recommended if you score low iron levels.
Cancer’s resistance to common chemotherapy drugs shows no such resistance to artemisinin. It does not have the chemical structure a cancer cell requires to develop resistance! (This was reported recently in the International Journal of Oncology 18; 767-773, 2001 by Efferth, et al.)
Dr. Hoang of Hanoi of Vietnam, whose family of physicians has been using artemisinin for about 10 years to treat cancer has reports that 50 to 60 percent of 400 cancer patients have achieved long-term remission utilizing artemisinin together with a comprehensive integrative cancer strategy.
Dr. Singh is currently following many cancer patients. While not reporting remissions or apparent cures, he says all patients are responding and have at least stabilized. He has found no type of cancer unresponsive to Artemisia derivatives in his studies.
Dr. Hoang recommends treatment for two years. Cancer could be like the malaria parasite. If just one cell remains, it can find its way back. Thus, as in malaria, although the parasite is cleared in a few days, prolonged treatment best prevents relapse. And, the beauty of this treatment is that it is non-toxic, so you can continue taking it indefinitely with no expected side-effects.
Things To Keep In Mind
1) Artemisinin cannot be taken simply on its own. You need to combine it with certain specific foods for it to absorb properly.
2) Not all Artemisinin supplements are ‘created equal’ and therefore only the ones that have been tested and approved will give the proper results.
3) No artesminin should be taken within 30 days of radiation therapy because of possible free iron leaks to the surrounding tissues after radiation therapy.
