I have used the Buhner protocol for chronic lyme disease, with much success. Now I am in East Africa…evidence that I have regained my health! I had malaria (Plasmodium falciparum) which has cleared with traditional medicine. A friend is shipping me some herbs now. I am wondering if I can use artemisinin for prevention. If so, what is the dosage? What other herbs? Otherwise, I will keep artemisinin in my medicine cabinet if I get malaria again. Any suggestions?
Yes, you can use artemisinin for malaria prevention. I also recommend cryptolepis. But the artemisinin is easier to carry overseas and is what I would primarily recommend for that reason. Cryptolepis is harder to get. The artemisinin dosage for prevention in a malarial habitat: take 800 mg daily for three days, repeat every two weeks.
