Is Artemisia (in a wormwood combo to treat parasites) just a weaker strength of Artemisinin?

Also, if it is stronger, than I am also assuming it would also kill parasites (along with Babs of course)?

Do you take Artemisinin with the Mepron/Zith combo or separately? I now assuming that Mepron/Zith alone will not get rid of Babs completely without the Artemisinin added... [confused]

I have no idea where to buy Artemisinin and what brand people find the most trusted/effective...any suggestions would be wonderful and much appreciated!

This is all SO confusing, thanks for your help [bonk]

Artemisinin is a pharmaceutical grade extract (babs)

Artemesia Annua is the whole plant (babs/bart)

Artemisia Absinthium is Wormwood (parasites)


All 3 are very different.

Zhang uses Artemisia Annua
Buhner recommends artemisinin and/or crypotlepis
Absinthium/Wormwood treats parasites


Here is link to a very affordable/good quality Art

As for Wormwood I recommend Hanna Kroeger's Herbs

No problem. Usually away from abx's.

Artemisinin take with a fat source (avocado, coconut oil, etc)

Wormwood take on empty stomach (feed the parasites)

Artemisia Annua you could do either way

Thanks for your help canefan! I will try this and see how it goes...

Do parasites need to be treated before anything else in order to progress smoothly into treatment?

I treated parasites while treating lyme and co

We coexist with parasites... so imo it's not a necessity to ensure beating Lyme.

But it can certainly help
