Is there a cure for leishmaniasis?

In traditional Chinese medicine, the herb Artemisia annua has been known for about 2,000 years.
The Chinese pharmacologist Prof. Youyou Tu was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015 for the extraction of substances from artemisinin.


Definition of terms:
Artemisia annua L: the whole plant containing certain highly effective active ingredients.
Artesunate: a semi-synthetic form of the active substance artemisinin
Artemisinin: an active substance of Artemisia annua L.


Some fields of application:
- Malaria
- AIDS/HIV
- Alzheimer's disease/dementia
- Arthritis
- Asthma
- Acidosis
- Bacterial infections
- Lyme disease
- Leishmaniasis
- Corona virus/COVID-19
- Diabetes
- Diarrhoea
- Inflammation
- Epilepsy
- Immune system
- Cancer
- Fungus treatment
- Digestive system


Studies have shown that the plant Artemisia annua also has a destructive effect on Leishmania. The effect of artemisinin is based on programmed cell death (apoptosis) of Leishmania, damage to the mitochondrial cell membrane and inhibition of cell division.
Dosage and dosage forms:
Artemisia annua is available in different forms: as a tincture, dried herb, powder, ointment or capsules. For dogs, the capsule form seems to be the most suitable (it can be opened). Artemisia therapy should always be consulted with a veterinarian or an animal naturopath.
