The coronavirus has put people around the world on edge, but there are those that have little to no concern. That has resulted in a surge of social media posts that contain false theories about the virus, which could ultimately worsen the public health crisis, according to many. Here Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com, reflects on Chinese Medicine herb and existing medications such as chloroquine:
“News is breaking all over the world that chloroquine, a prescription medication used to treat malaria, also appears to be effective against the coronavirus. According to local news KFOR.com, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation is advocating testing of the drug against COVID-19, the disease caused by the Wuhan coronavirus. From the KFOR.com
James explained that repurposing existing medications is often the fastest path to treating those infected by the virus in a novel way.
“That would be really exciting, because it’s a drug that already has FDA approval, and it is readily available,” she said. “If it works, it might treat COVID-19 almost instantly.”
Wider studies are now underway to confirm the results.
Chloroquine is best known as a malaria treatment, and it seems very likely to be helpful in preventing coronavirus infections. But what about natural molecules from herbs that might offer the same promise against both malaria and coronavirus?
Here’s a promising candidate herb that prevents malaria and tuberculosis
In the world of natural medicine, there are already powerful, well-known treatments against malaria that also happen to prevent tuberculosis, an aggressive infection of the respiratory tract. While nothing is yet proven to treat coronavirus, our review of herbal medicine studies and medicinal phytochemicals leads us to the conclusion that this Chinese Medicine herb may one day become known as the “natural cure” for coronavirus (although clinical trials are needed, obviously, to prove this).
The chemical is called artemesinin, and the herb is known as sweet wormwood. And no, we don’t sell it. This isn’t a commercial promotion, it’s an effort to help save millions of lives using medicine that’s available right now, all around the world.
Artemesinin is known for its ability to block the bacterial strain that causes tuberculosis, known as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. That doesn’t mean it prevents coronavirus, which is a viral infection, but it’s a strong candidate for a number of logical reasons.
According to research published in the journal Phytomedicine, artemisinin / sweet wormwood has a “100% cure rate” for treating drug-resistant malaria, at least in a small trial involving 18 patients (all of whom were cured). As Herbs.news writes in this important story:
A study led by Pamela Weathers, a professor of biology and biotechnology at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), published in the journal Phytomedicine, describes how the Artemisia annua plant, commonly known as sweet wormwood or sweet annie, saved 18 patients with drug-resistant malaria from the brink of death.
The Congolese patients, who ranged in age from 14 months to 60 years, had all developed severe, untreatable malaria, with symptoms ranging from loss of consciousness, to trouble breathing and convulsions, among others. When they failed to respond to intravenous treatment with an ACT, compassionate doctors decided to try the dried leaves of the Artemisia annua plant as a last resort. After only five days of the treatment, all 18 patients were fully recovered, including one child who had been in a coma. Blood tests revealed that absolutely no parasites remained in their blood.
That study was published in Phytomedicine, and the full study is available at this link on ScienceDirect.com. The title of the study is, “Artemisia annua dried leaf tablets treated malaria resistant to ACT and i.v. artesunate: Case reports.”
