Poser un question - bleu de méthylène contre la malaria

Published by rayonsoleil

C'est possible que tout le monde sait que la quinine est employé contre la malaria.

Cependant, j'avais lu d'un traitement différent. Un traitement également vieux -- c'est bleu de méthylène.

Il serait certainement peu coûteux comparé à la plupart des autres traitements. Même si il n'est pas très efficace, serait-il meilleur qu'aucun traitement du tout, n'est-ce-pas ?

Savez-vous . . . ce qui s'est produit avec l'idée du bleu de méthylène ?

Question about artemesia

Published by rayonsoleil

Is anyone engaged in providing Artemesia annua (artemesia) plants or seeds, to malaria-ridden areas?

Could residents grow their own plants and either grind the leaves, or steep them into tea, etc. - in order to make their own herbal medicine?

Waiting for tablets and capsules from the Western world may take a long time, and be very expensive.
