Let’s talk about wormwood. This natural herb has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine.

The synthetic version of wormwood is the most effective treatment for malaria. There is also some interesting research on wormwood for COVID.

Other potential benefits of wormwood:
• It’s anti-parasitic
• It may be effective against worms, viruses, bacteria, and Lyme disease
• It’s anti-viral

What we’re going to focus on today, though, is its effectiveness against cancer.

Potential benefits of wormwood for cancer patients:
1. It can selectively cause apoptosis in cancer cells.

2. It oxidizes a small amount of your iron, turning it into a free radical and directing it to the cancer cell. Oxidized iron is toxic to cancer cells.

3. The phytonutrients in wormwood can inhibit a certain protein complex involved in the process of normal cells converting into cancer cells.

4. It can inhibit normal cells from producing an increase in blood vessels to a tumor.

5. It’s anti-inflammatory and may help stop the formation and spread of cancer.

6. It has an anti-metastatic effect, which means it may help inhibit the growth of cancer.

    • Happy on April 9, 2023 at 4:26 pm

      Try again!!!it grows well in Germany,so I think there is a high chance that it grows in the UK….did you try “Artemisia annua ?

    • Lilian Flynn on April 9, 2023 at 4:30 pm

      @Happy I will look for that type
      Thank you very much ❤

    Even when Absinthe (wormwood) was on its 100 year ban the French Foreign Legion still issued a daily allowance of the drink to combat ALL tropical diseases .

    • Donna Leveron on April 9, 2023 at 4:33 pm

      @MedicalHerbalism47 if you wish to share valuable information, that is a good thing, however, please do so without the snarkiness and putting others down. That’s a really big turn-off.

    • MedicalHerbalism47 on April 9, 2023 at 6:38 pm

      @Donna Leveron you might be right , however . giving opinions on something they dont know . especialy on people with cancer that is fine i guess?

    • MedicalHerbalism47 on April 9, 2023 at 6:49 pm

      @Donna Leveron its not bad , no to know something for sure i do mistakes as well , but insisting on a mistake , when its something . that could keep in life or not someone potentialy , that is fine? because i dont see anybody reacting to that

  7. Julie Riddell on April 9, 2023 at 10:34 am

    This is good stuff. Doug Kauffman (Know the Cause) has been talking about the relationship between cancer and parasites, especially fungal ones like Candida, for a long time. He has promoted garlic and wormwood and other parasite treatments for people with or trying to avoid cancer. I lost my husband to cancer four years ago and I believe there is a definite connection. Keep up the great information!

    • NM C on April 9, 2023 at 11:12 am

      Condolences for the loss of your husband

    • Julie Riddell on April 9, 2023 at 1:00 pm

      @NM C Thank you! Hard after 40 years 🙁

    • Say Thankyou on April 9, 2023 at 3:24 pm

      What was the link between the cancer and parasites you experienced…..👀🇺🇸🕊

    • Juanita Villarreal on April 9, 2023 at 5:34 pm

      My husband use to make fun of me for saying the same thing.

    • My Cancer Journey on April 9, 2023 at 6:58 pm

      Thank you so much for your videos! I had a misfortune, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I also created a channel and am trying to move in that direction, but so far not very successful((c

  8. Esoteric Solitaire on April 9, 2023 at 10:35 am

    My grandmother used to worm children every spring in SW VA. As a child, my aunt and I were walking along a dirt road when she began to gag. She pointed at a green plant and told me all she had to do was look at it to get queasy.
    She said the concoction her mother made and made them drink cleaned you out from one end to the other, copiously. She remembered sitting and staring into the fireplace, hoping to die. But if you had worms, they were no more. Wonder what that plant was?

    I grow wormwood so that I always have it on hand. Thank you for your amazing videos. God bless you and all who are reading this. Happy Easter!

    • That One Girl on April 9, 2023 at 5:44 pm

      @Donna Leveron I live in Indiana. I would think it could be grown in Texas. It really flourishes in Temps around 75 to 80 degrees. It’s actually looked at as a weed here, but then again, most things that are good for you are called weeds these days.

    • Sunshine Kadoe Glow on April 9, 2023 at 6:27 pm

      It makes me extremely sick when I take it

    • That One Girl on April 9, 2023 at 6:43 pm

      @Sunshine Kadoe Glow I’m sorry. Does it make you sick right away or after a few doses?

    • Sunshine Kadoe Glow on April 9, 2023 at 6:50 pm

      @That One Girl after a few doses I think I can’t feel my hands and get a bad head ache

  10. blairsy on April 9, 2023 at 12:05 pm

    I’m so glad Dr. Berg is doing a video on this, touching on the subject of anthelmintics’ effects on cancer.

  11. pbostler on April 9, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    Thank you. My sister-in-law most likely has pancreatic cancer. She can not see an oncologist without a biopsy. Only about 3 people in our state do pancreatic biopsies. A mass was found in the last part of February. Her biopsy is April 26. Meanwhile, she’s 75 pounds and in pain. ,

    I praise the Lord , Dr. Berg, for your priceless information. I do not go to doctors!

    Let me say this: Her diet was made up of high carbs and lots of candy, ice cream, etc. She thought that because she was already thin, that sugar was ok.

    Thank you.

    • Joyce Howard on April 9, 2023 at 12:27 pm

      Sugar is the worst thing to eat!My husband died of cancer prayer of healing for her God bless

    • pbostler on April 9, 2023 at 12:56 pm

      @joycehoward5193  Thank you so very much for the prayers. My prayers for you as well.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 9, 2023 at 1:50 pm

      Sorry to hear about your husband. Wishing you and the rest of your family good health!

  12. Cheryl Button on April 9, 2023 at 12:35 pm

    Dr Berg, can you tell us what vitamins and minerals are depleted when taking this herb or what vitamins and minerals we should not take when taking this herb for it to work effectively very kind being?

  13. Yap Magi on April 9, 2023 at 12:40 pm

    Thank you Dr Berg for Artemesia /woodworm plant info. We use this plant for cancer and dengue and it is effective to rid dengue parasite. We take a few stall, wash clean, crush with fingers and let it boil in a cup or two short while and drink the water when cool down. Also, we add the leaves in soup. Traditionally we used to eat them with fried egg omelette.

    • george ikinya on April 9, 2023 at 3:24 pm

      ​@Tony Padilla any organic food store in America you can get. I have seen it on shelves but now am educated on it.

    • Donna Leveron on April 9, 2023 at 4:22 pm

      Was it used as a fresh herb in the omelette? How much was used for one person? Great to know ways of ingesting it!

    • Irene Henry-Cinetti on April 9, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    • Sunshine Kadoe Glow on April 9, 2023 at 6:21 pm

      Everytime I take wormwood drops, my body feels extremely I’ll ; like nothing I’ve never felt before

  14. Okidokinawa on April 9, 2023 at 12:53 pm

    Wormwood used to be a common part of the Okinawan diet. It was traditionally eaten with any dish that included goat meat, including raw goat meat. Maybe this is one clue as to why they were known for their longevity, despite their love of pork and goat meat.

  15. B G on April 9, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    Dr Berg, You are a genuine genius in knowledge and an artist in presentation. Thank you for sharing.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 9, 2023 at 2:19 pm

      Thank you. Glad you like the presentations here. Thanks for your feedback.

  16. Gramabair Hannah. on April 9, 2023 at 1:59 pm

    Way back in the beginning of Facebook there was a post of a protocol for cancer on a Healing from cancer group page. It involves wormwood or artemisinin and fish oil. I realized the importance of it and I’ve been growing my own wormwood since. I have heard there’s a shortage of sources for the natural herb so I’m grateful you have brought this herb into the light. Since the protocol was posted Facebook has taken it off. So my belief is that if anything is taken down like that there is much value in it.

    • Missingyou on April 9, 2023 at 2:11 pm

      I don’t know how long ago the post was removed, but anti parasitics were very effective in preventing and/or curing the Rona. I take Paraguard, and the reviews spoke of many people getting better.

    • E H on April 9, 2023 at 4:05 pm

      Where/how to get seeds to start growing?

    • E H on April 9, 2023 at 4:08 pm

      ​@Missingyou How often do you take Paraguard for prevention?

  17. Apricot Cat on April 9, 2023 at 2:10 pm

    Please Dr Berg do a video on all the nutrients you need to have for your body. I don’t know if you have videos mentioning them all. Also I haven’t been able to get blood tests for all the nutrients at the medical centre. There is a risk of overdosing on nutrients by supplements. Maybe you could list the safe levels of nutrients per day. Not everyone gets the same symptoms of deficiencies and there are the same symptoms for different deficiences

  18. Wanda Yonder on April 9, 2023 at 2:17 pm

    Tarragon is in the Artemisia plant family with wormwood. Tarragon has been used medicinally too, with similar properties to wormwood. Maybe we could throw more tarragon in our salads and cooking.

    • Hidden Paths. on April 9, 2023 at 7:16 pm

      tarragon goes very well with chicken dishes.

  19. Susanna Paladino on April 9, 2023 at 2:53 pm

    Hi Dr Berg ! How many drops a day do you recommend? I don’t have any serious illnesses except inflammation in the small intestine. It comes and goes depending on my diet.

  20. budmokie on April 9, 2023 at 4:57 pm

    I grow wormwood in my garden for my goats. It’s a natural dewormer for them. I even dry it to use during winter. I’ve never used it on myself though. It’s got a really strong medicinal smell which I’m sure is an indication of it’s powerful benefits.
