Artemisia Annua
In 2015 a Chinese scientist received the Nobel prize for her studies with Artemisia annua. She discovered that this plant contains artemisinin, an active ingredient to heal malaria. Malaria still kills one child every minute in Subsahara Africa. Pharmaceutical companies have produced artemisinin-containing drugs that help to ease malaria symptoms but do not completely rid the body of the malaria causing parasite. This parasite is becoming more and more resistant to these drugs. This French documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvC4uSYprU8 explains the amazing story of Artemisia annua, used as a herbal tea: it is 97% effective against the parasite Plasmodium falciparum that causes malaria especially in children under 5 years old. This is an outstanding example of how people can help themselves by growing this plant as a preventative and as an effective remedy to heal malaria. An African version of Artemisia called Artemisia afra, a perennial plant, does not contain artemisinin but many other potent constituents which are also highly beneficial against malaria. Artemisia afra grows from South Africa right up to Ethiopia, the area where malaria is most prevalent. Both Artemisia plants have anti-parasitic properties.
