Dear Stephen,
I have been diagnosed with chronic lyme and babesia and my doctor put me on a protocol of artemisin. I have suffered all my life from tinnitus and after I took the artemisin, it got much worse. Do you know if artemisin can worsen tinnitus? If it does, what alternative do I have? I am so looking forward to your answer. Blessings.


Stephen’s response:
Artemisinin can exacerbate tinnitus in some circumstances. These days, I generally recommend the use of Sida acuta or Alchornea cordifolia or Cryptolepis sanguinolenta for the treatment of babesia rather than artemisinin. You can get them from woodlandessence.com. My first choice is Sida acuta, second is cryptolepis. They shouldn’t exacerbate tinnitus.
Stephen
