this is one herb that has the potential to help or

destroy...if you take this and you have the

neurotoxic reaction to it and it CAN happen..it

will affect your brain stem people...many people

have been hurt by this herb..my friend has been

home bound for the last 8 years because of it..

if you dont believe me look up dr stephan

toovey..he is the one who did the tests and

says this herb is only used in situations of

close to death because of its neuro side

effects..people and lymies please dont

disregard what is say..it is TRUE! the cell

mitochondria falls apart and you are going to

be in really bad shape... you will have severe

vertigo and you nervous system will go haywire.

I ask that you please believe me and avoid this

herb..its side effects are much worse then

lyme..by the way my friend was using zhangs

artemesia and has spent many years in the

hospital..back and forth..as soon as he stands

up he gets dizzy and faints..shame on our llmd

who refuse to understand the severe and life

changing side effects of these potent and

dangerous herbs...i care about everyone of us

on this lyme board..if you took it before and

it worked then you may have not taken it close

to any oils or fish oils..that is a big no no..

any oils make art many many times stronger then

before..increasing the risk..also it oxidizes

the cell before it falls apart and then you

will have damaged cells..in this case you need

very large doses of antioxidents like coq 10

and vitamin e

thanks for listening.

I was instructed to always take it on an empty stomach. It worked like a miracle for me!

Art works great for me too. It's good to know the warning though Overlyme, thank you.

All meds and some herbs have side effects. It's a risk people take. Unfortunately people are so willing to take meds without even considering side effects though. Energetic testing shows what is good and what is bad for individuals. Art tests great for me though.

There are so many variables with lyme too. Your friend could have been full of toxins, or wasn't detoxing enough or really just could not handle art. The die off from BB alone makes people sick/herx. Maybe the artemsinin was the last straw when your friend took it? Either way, I hope your friend gets better. Thanks again for the warning. :)

I studied stephan toovey's claims about this years ago. His "research" was VERY limited, sorely lacking, skewed and his conclusion is not correct because he has not taken the proper methods in his work.

Well, aren't world health organizations giving art to thousands of people to treat malaria? And, I understand it works very well.

So, it seems that Toovey's 2005-6 claims must have been debunked or at least never proven.

It got rid of my babesia in about two months. I combined it with zithromax.

I'm very sorry to hear that some people react so adversely to it.

I would be careful of any herbs sourced from China and other places. Testing has revealed many of these are adulterated, such as green tea extract. Buyer beware. It is probably hard to determine exactly what happened to Overlyme's friend.

keebler you are incorrect..and what you are

saying is wrong..it happened to me..so stop the

claims that his conclusions are not correct..

think before you remark like that..sorry to

be so blunt..toovey came to NY to help me get

better from the known side effects of art..

Sounds like your friend still has babs. Artemisinin made me feel like crap but I came out much better for it. Turned my life around.
