Artemisinin has been used for about 30 years in Vietnam and China for cancer treatment. And the experience with artemisinin for this purpose is increasing. This history probably led to the recent cited cancer research with artemisinin.
Ok, in simple English… cancer cells need Iron to quickly replicate. Our bodies also need Iron (absorbable iron) too, but it has to be the absorbable iron that we can get from good food (not supplements… remember that Gerson does not support IRon supplements- NO TO IRON SUPPLEMENTS in Gerson Therapy). The bad thing about Iron (the free form kind) is, sometines we have an excess of non-absorbable iron that cancer cells feed on. And somehow, there seems to be a link between parasites, irregular menstruation, delayed menstruation and cancer… IT makes sense right, delayed menstruation probably means the parasites are feasting on our blood ==> which can also be our menstrual flow. Cancer cells, with its fast growing blood vessels use up our Iron-supply.. so a lot of cancer patients also have anemia… So, what do we do now, with all that excess free form Iron?
Guess what, artemisinin becomes “Cytotoxic” meaning toxic to cancer cells in the prescence of Iron…therefore the more free form Iron is in the blood, the happier artemisinin is ==> as it converts itself to a mean cancer fighting machine… toxic to cancer cells but not to normal cells… what can get any better than that? Chemo is toxic to both normal and cancer cells.. thats why it kills cancer cells and the host. Artemisinin a compound found in artemisia…is toxic ONLY to cancer cells.
One common characteristic of the herb Artemisia (wormwood) & turmeric, is that both of them have anti-parasitic, anti-fungal and anti- cancer properties,, and DIRT CHEAP.
Anyways, just want to reiterate that Damong Maria (Artemisia vulgaris) and Sweet Annie (Artemisia Annua) are cousins but they are not the same. Artemisia Annua (Hia, Qing Hao or Sweet Annie or wormwood) is the one that has been studied extensively as a “possible” inexpensive and effective cancer treatment ..
Here are some studies that relates:
1.) Menstrual issues to bowel, liver and, adrenal kidney issues, meaning women having menstrual issues were treated with food, herbs, supplements and natural progesterone to address bowel, liver, kidney and adrenal issues.
Most of the herbs used in this study such as burdock, licorice, dong quai etcetera are all used as Emmenagogues, and also have anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties. It also makes it possible that pregnancy, as well as inducing mentstruation (via natural progesterone), can heal breast cancer and other hormone related diseases like endometriosis, as it forces our body to release blood==> IRON…and probably even the cancer cells (our body treats tumuor as if it is a baby==so it nourishes it.. when immunity is supressed our bodies cant really tell if its a baby or cancer==> so it keeps nourishing the tumuor)==> birthing causes all of these hormones and probably even cancer cells to get out of our bodies.
2.) Pangpa-regla (Emmenagogues) being sold in Quiapo, Manila in the Philippines usually used to terminate/abort unwanted pregnancies, can probably helped those who genuinely need it for health reasons..
Note: due to Moral and health reasons, I do not support abortion. But I do believe that herbs used for abortion can probably cure cancer and other women related illnesses if used in proper dosage. All of these herbs control progesterone, which are “messengers” in our bodies telling our organs to nourish a baby and even an unwelcomed visitor such as cancer cells and parasites. When a pregnant woman is nearing childbirth, the level of progeterone drops significantly, that the uterus stops nourishing the baby, and pushes it out of the body. I believe the effect would be the same for parasites and cancer cells.
Read the following with discretion:
Its probably a good time to review the Unitarian or Tropoblastic Theory as a Cause of Cancer.
