When the press release on "wormwood" came out, no one really knew which herb was used in the study. There are 147 types of artemisia and the one actually used in the study was Artemisia annua, Sweet Annie. Since late November, I have been networking with others who embarked on a quest similar to my own, and I feel I have some input I want to share. Besides, I used it myself with rather dramatic effects. I would guess I had parasites, and, as one herbalist said to me today, "Isn't it interesting how the same herbs that are used for parasite cleansing are good for cancer!" We don't know why, but obviously many believe as Hulda Clark does that the two conditions are inseparable. I am not quite that flat-footed.
Anyway, what has been confounding to many is the references to iron by the two researchers at the University of Washington. Here is what I understand from inquiries into the use of artemisinin with malaria.
The parasitized cell has extra iron (similar to the cancer cell) and what the artemisinin does initially is break apart an oxygen molecule that acts as a bridge within the morbid structure. Two free radicals are formed that are then eradicated by the second wave of artemisinin. The opinion of several with whom I have spoken is that it is not important to increase the iron, merely to avoid antioxidants during the time that one is using artemisia.
