So, why does the website state this:
"Stephen no longer recommends artemisinin or artemisia for babesia infections. It can work, but whatever you are treating, Sida acuta will work better, especially for babesia or bartonella."
Do you think the website is not accurate??
I'm just confused. :)
The website hasn't been truly updated in easily 10 years.
Time and experience showed that artemisin can work for enough people (but definitely not all) to put it back into the Babesia protocol.
Ironically, in his new book that includes Babesia, Buhner says that Cryptolepis alone clears Babesia infection in half of the people who take it that way. Of course, the remaining 50% is a substantial number and thus the expanded protocol.
And sorry to the OP for going a bit OT.
Jul '14 tick bite - inadequate abx from PCP
Sept '14 met LLMD - clinical Lyme dx due to Bells Palsy/started abx (CDC positive IgM)
Feb '15 weaned off abx and started full Cowden protocol along w/LDN - 90% healed
Aug '15 started transition to Buhner's Lyme, Babesia & Bartonella protocols
Nov '15 stopped LDN - 98% healed
Aug '16 started modified Buhner Lyme/Bart protocol - 99% healed!
