Targeting Cancer with Artemisinin
In limited studies, this supplement targets and kills cancer cells while healthy cells are unaffected. Although initial study results are still in the earliest stages, the results are promising. Artemisinin creates pro-oxidant effects when it comes into contact with cells that exhibit high levels of iron.
Although anti-oxidant effects are generally what yield positive health, there are specific instances where oxidation is actually beneficial. Researchers are now looking at specific compounds tat provide pro-oxidant effects and Artemisinin seems to fit the bill.
When in the presence of iron, the two oxygen atoms in Artemisinin break down. In turn, selective free radicals are produced that destroy the iron that’s found in both cancer cells and malaria parasites. Basically, once Artemisinin comes into contact with iron, it produces free radicals that specifically target and damage cancer cells.
Amazingly, in cancer cells, iron levels can be 1000 times higher than normal cells. This is exciting, as Artemisinin could potentially act as a non-toxic cancer treatment. Since most cancers have large concentrations of iron on their surface, Artemisinin is believed to make a significant impact.
In laboratory settings, resistant breast cancer cells that accumulate high concentrations of iron were significantly impacted by Artemisinin. After 8 hours, Artemisinin had 75 percent cancer killing properties and after 24-hours, 100 percent killing potential, based on cells that were loaded with iron.
Other Benefits of Artemisinin
Not only is artemisinin used to treat cancer and malaria, but also offers the following health benefits:
• Sedative effects: This supplement contains compounds that help calm and relax both nerves and muscles. In turn, this helps promote relaxation and sleep.
• Anti-inflammatory: Artemisinin has been shown to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain. It’s also been used to treat GI issues and a variety of autoimmune diseases.
• Anti-bacterial: Artemisinin offers anti-bacterial properties and for this reason, it’s often used to treat wounds, helping them heal. When suffering from skin lesions, this herb can prevent infection and reduce pain.
• Oxygenator: If you have heard of oxygen treatment, this herb offers similar effects. It breaks down infectious or parasitic particles in the body, destroying them before they cause damage. It’s even been shown to protect healthy cells while destroying unhealthy ones.
Pure artemisinin or Qinghaosu, the active constituent of the herb Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood). Good quality Artemisia annua contains 0.3-0.5% artemisinin, so pure artemisinin provides hundreds of times more of the active constituent artemisinin than the whole herb itself. Our Artemisinin is minimum 98.5% pure, and does not contain thujone.
Artemesia is a plant that grows in Southeast that Dr. Rowen has used in the past to treat intestinal parasites. It is also considered a safe malaria treatment. When Dr. Rowen discovered a report by Drs. Henry Lai and Narenda Singh, bioengineering professors at the University of Washington, that indicated that the herb “might provide a safe, non-toxic, and inexpensive alternative for cancer patients”, he started using it with cancer patients.
Dr. Lai and his colleague, Dr. Singh, had found its use dramatically killed breast-cancer cells and leukemia cells while leaving normal breast cells and white blood cells unscathed.
Dr. Rowen also reported on an article that appeared about a year ago in a major cancer journal demonstrating significant artemisinin anticancer activity in a wide variety of laboratory cultured cancer cells. Cancers resistant to common chemotherapy drugs showed no resistance to artemisinin. (International Journal of Oncology 18; 767-773, 2001 by Efferth, et al.)
One of the patient’s Dr. Rowen worked with was a 47-year-old female with stage-4 breast cancer with mets to the spine.. She used IPT, high-dose nutritional therapy, dietary changes, dendritic cell vaccine, multi-step oxygen therapy, and more. All of her symptoms regressed, but the CT showed no change. When artemisinin derivatives were added, greater results were obtained.
Artemesia herb products are not the same as the concentrated forms of the derivatives. The highest concentration of artemisinin (the active agent) in the raw herb in best of conditions does not even get beyond one-half percent. Dr. Singh tested some products, finding perhaps only 10-20 percent of anti-cancer activity against cultured cancer cells compared to pure artemisinin in our product. This is a high-grade artemisinin confirmed by independent lab analysis, so this is the one Dr. Rowen recommended.
Potential Side Effects of Artemisinin
It’s important to discuss Artemisinin with your doctor before your first dose. The herb can potentially interact with other medication, especially those that are taken to treat seizures. Artemisinin may also affect liver and kidney enzymes.
Artemisinin inhibits the proliferation, migration and tube formation of human umbilical vein of endothelial cells, inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor. In cancer cells artemisinin reduces the expression of VEGF receptors and slows down the growth of human ovarian carcinoma. Some may find Artemisinin too “cooling” with symptoms such as tingling. If this occurs, then the dosage should be reduced.
Artemisinin should be combined with a diet containing green tea, CoQ10 and pancreatic enzymes and liver and colon detoxing and cod liver oil (for its omega-S and vitamin D) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Take 2 capsules (2 x 200mg) once daily before bed (away from any residual iron left in the stomach from the evening meal). The product is best taken on an empty stomach before bed with some natural fat to enhance absorption. Any iron present from residual food may neutralize the peroxides. Milk is one of the few foods with minimal iron. Whole milk, cottage cheese, or yogurt have ample fat to enhance absorption.
Other ingredients: Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, L-leucine.
Don’t take at the same time as other antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E as they compete with Artemisinin’s actions.
Artemisinin inhibits inflammatory response via regulating NF-kB and MAPK signaling pathways. pretreatment of cells with artemisinin prevented the TNF-α-induced expression of NF-κB target genes, such as anti-apoptosis (c-IAP1, Bcl-2, and FLIP), proliferation (COX-2, cyclinD1), invasion (MMP-9), angiogenesis (VEGF), and major inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, iNOS, and MCP1). We also proved that artemisinin potentiated TNF-α-induced apoptosis. Moreover, artemisinin significantly impaired the ROS production and phosphorylation of p38 and ERK, but did not affect the phosphorylation of JNK. Taken together, artemisinin may be a potentially useful therapeutic agent for inflammatory-related diseases.
