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? And 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. I generally recommend the use of Sida acuta or alchornea cordifolia or cryptolepis for the treatment of babesia these days rather than artemisinin. You can get them from woodlandessence.com. My first choice is sida actua, second is cryptolepis. They shouldn’t exacerbate tinnitus.
Stephen
