- Wormwood is the precise supplement to take for babesia. It needs to be Artemisinin. While related, there is a huge difference, especially in strength. Wormwood, while able to cause digestive unrest that can be "impressive" is not strong enough to battle babesia.
Wormwood is helpful to address parasites, but does not specifically target babesia. Artemisinin is the more specific one to use for babesia.
Sorry, I can't say about timing for either, though. I was never able to get any Rx for the basesia (so, I'm glad you do have a multi-pronged approach).
Until you get an answer, you might take them separately especially as wormwood can cause loose bowels and would decrease the time the Rx is able to do its job.
Also, other herbs or ingredients in the wormwood combo could interact with the Rx. Usually, all supplements are taken separately from Rx, by several hours.
However, for treating babesia, artemisinin may be a different case regarding timing with Rx.
I would take the combo away from vitamins and minerals, too. -
