Introduction to Sweet Wormwood Treatment for Cancer

Sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua) is an herb that grows in the east from Pakistan to China. It is an anti-malarial that is also used to combat COVID-19, scabies, candida albicans infections, E. Coli, Salmonella, and other bacterial infections along with parasites including Schistosomas (blood flukes). Research has shown that wormwood can have a significant effect against HPV-induced cancers. [1][4]

Recently, in countries, such as Tanzania, Artemisia annua has been used to cure COVID-19. Artemisia annua infusions work only in the sunlight during daytime hours. This is because it releases hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and thus, when Artemisia annua is used in the sunlight the Ultraviolet/Hydrogen Peroxide System is activated inside the body. This system is a famous oxidation process through which the interaction of hydrogen peroxide and UV light results in the production of the powerful hydroxyl radical, an oxidant that can kill invading microorganisms. [7]

Artemisinin is one active substance in Artemisia annua that has been identified as an important treatment for malaria as well as cancer. The pharmaceutical industry has tried to isolate and create a synthetic version of artemisinin and use it by itself to treat malaria, but artemisinin is not the only active ingredient or process through which the herb A. annua that has medicinal effects. Patients who are using A. annua to treat cancer should know that this plant likely contains a number of active substances that work together to combat the disease. The method of action is not entirely understood. [4]

The combination of Quinine and Artemisinin is another powerful medicinal duo that can be used to cure Long Haul COVID (also known as Long COVID).

 Arteminisin and Iron


Studies on Artemisinin have shown that it is especially active when bound to iron.  Luckily, cancer cells consume a lot of iron. When mixed with iron, artemisinin is 34,000 times more potent against cancer cells according to these studies. The iron-artemisinin mix creates free-radicals that are toxic to all cells, but cancer cells are much hungrier for iron than healthy cells, which makes this treatment targeted and effective. Research has shown that the iron-artemisinin complex is highly selective and potent against cancer cells [1][2].


Artemisinin is stable in acid, so it passes through the stomach without being destroyed. [4]



Research in Singapore has shown that artemisinin mixed with Aminolaevulinic Acid can kill colorectal cancer cells without effecting healthy cells [1]. In other words, Artemisinin and Aminoaevulinic Acid have the ability to cure colon cancer. Some experts theorize that more aggressive cancers such as pancreatic cancer and acute leukemia could respond even better to treatment with Artemisinin than other, slow-growing cancers. Artemisinin and Artemisia annua are a potential cure for acute leukemia and pancreas cancer, but don’t attempt to use this type of therapy as a stand-alone treatment for any of these cancer-types. Artemisinin and Artemisia annua should be combined with other treatments like vitamin B17, iodine therapy, and pancreatic enzyme therapy with dosing at times of the day that won’t interfere with the medicinal action of Artemisia annua and Artemisinin. 

Aggressive cancers require more iron in order to survive, which makes it easier to target them with artemisinin and the free-radicals that result from the wormwood-iron mix [3]. Again, be sure to use this type of therapy in combination with other anti-cancer treatments if you’re trying to cure leukemia or pancreatic cancer. The same is true if you wish to cure Long COVID / Long Haul COVID.


If you’re hoping to cure pancreatic cancer or any other type of cancer, it’s essential that you read more about pancreatic enzymes. Pancreatic enzymes are a front line defense against cancer and they are an important part of any anti-cancer protocol.


Preparation of Artemisia annua as an Herbal Tea

Boiling water destroys artemisinin, so if you’re drinking Artemisia annua tea, it is best to use hot water between 85-90 degrees Celsius or milk (because of its fat content) to extract the artemisinin from the tea leaves. [4]

It is possible to extract Artemisinin from the Artemisia annua plant at home. You must use fresh leaves from a living plant to obtain Artemisinin from Artemisia annua. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, fresh leaves of the plant are used and they are macerated (ground up) and then squeezed to obtain the juices in order to get a higher concentration of artemisinin. [4]

Dry A. annua leaves can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to a year and they’ll retain the full content of artemisinin intact under these conditions. The artemisinin in the Artemisia annua plant is stored in the glandular trichomes of the dried leaves and flowers along with essential oils. These essential oils naturally prevent fungi from growing which allows the artemisinin to remain intact for long periods of time. [4]


Cure Rate


In Hanoi, Vietnam, Dr. Hoang reports that out of 400 cancer patients, 50 to 60% achieved long-term remission using Artemisinin along with a comprehensive cancer protocol [3].




Artemisinin can cause spontaneous abortions so this herb is not suitable for women who are pregnant. Patients are advised to use wormwood for no longer than 4 weeks at time. Take short, periodic breaks of 1 week from the herb to allow the body to rebalance [1].
