Babesia and treponema medium while pregnant

Dear Stephen,
I have babesia and treponema medium. I was wondering if you can tell me what herbs I can take to eradicate this while pregnant?
Stephen’s response:
There is great difficulty in using herbs for babesia if you are pregnant. This is because the parasites infect the red blood cells, so to treat it, you need to use something that will itself enter red blood cells and kill the parasite while at the same time being widely circulated in the blood stream. This means that the herb will definitely enter the womb. The best herbs for babesia are cryptolepis, alchornea, sida, bidens, and artemisia. Unfortunately the first four, which are the strongest, are the best. Artemisinin can be used while pregnant but it would be best to wait until after the first trimester. It should be taken short term, as in the book, definitely NOT long term in such a situation. On the other hand, you can wait until you have the baby THEN treat the babesia, treponema. I would then suggest the use of Sida acuta tincture from
