Found – Artemisia Annua is a plant that grows in Asia, Europe, and now in the US. It’s been used in Chinese Medicine for ages as a powerful healing agent. Most of the crop of Artemisia Annua is grown in China but it can be found in other parts of the world.
Used for Hundreds of Years – In fact Artemisia Annua goes all the way back to the 2nd century AD as a healing herb.
Healing Malaria – Artemisia Annua has been shown to be up to 90% effective in treating malaria in clinical trials and that’s an outstanding number because malaria is very difficult to treat. In fact in Ethiopia Artemisia Annua is part of their normal protocol for treating malaria because it’s very effective. It contains artemisinin which works together with the iron in the malaria parasite thus killing the parasite. Artemisia Annua has been used for over 400 years to cure malaria in China.
Big pharma disputes these claims so you will have to make up your own mind. It’s very inexpensive so perhaps there’s no money to be made.

Artemisia Annua is very inexpensive (under $3 per dose) and was never given approval as a cancer drug could it be that there’s no money in it? That’s a very good question. It seems to work in a similar way to oxygen therapy for healing health problems.
