No further studies about Artemisia?
My 3 Artemisia annua plants have been harvested and dried (including 1000s of almost microscopic seeds- more than 1 plant is needed for fertilization according to some instruction). It is a pleasant smelling herb; I stripped the foliage from the stems by hand and have about a gallon (4 L) of loosely packed herb.
In April there were promising sounds about the preparation Covid-Organics, from Madagascar (A annua, coffee and perhaps some more local herbs). The drink was exported to some African countries, who now have the lowest number of deaths/ million in the world. Of course their average population age is very young, and they can buy HCQ OTC. The WHO, not famous for its speed, almost instantly warned against its use agianst corona, without even bothering to warn for symptoms and side effects
After june 5th: complete and total silence!
I can only find one study, which encourages more studies due to its promise:
There should be more! really…
As is the usual case for the cheap stuff they’re scared might work, this trial on AA doesn’t finish until mid-2021.
And they only will recruit 240 participants. Any bets it will be dropped due to not enough enrollment? Any bets it won’t have enough statistical power to prove any results? 4 different things are being tested, so that’s 60 participants for each arm. And the AA is actually just “AA coffee.”
Note: this year-long trial is for a 28-day treatment.
I would seriously like to bring all these people up before my tribunal.
Here’s a possibility. It occurs to me that if we got the right set of people involved, and the right sort of marketing, we might well be able to execute a GoFundMe clinical trial that:
a) finishes in a reasonable number of days, and
b) actually may end up succeeding.
We’d have to market it right though. And I certainly don’t know how to conduct a trial, so – hmm. Anyhow, it was an idle thought. Rather than sit back and be helpless, there might actually be a way out.
We’d need a real influencer behind us though. Think for a moment who might be on that list.
They’re gonna fight against this one as hard as they can, as they have already been doing (it’s not well-known but so far is banned in France and Belgium), despite having been unable to prevent the widespread recognition of its extremely effective antimalarial effects, because the mechanism of action of artemisinins seems to be that of its lost peroxide bridge/group being an oxidant, i.e. it’s the same hated MOA as chlorine dioxide, ozone, and hydrogen peroxide.
I came across this video: street vendors selling Artemisia in South Africa against covid:
