Hello all, this is Debbie, Mom of Chelsea.  Chelsea was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and had her amputation of her right front leg 4 days ago.  She is doing great.  No visible lung mets. I am now researching subsequent nutrition and supplements.  I want to start Chelsea on Artemisinin or its derivatives.  I know there are varying protocols.  I don't want to spend excess money needlessly, but I want to do what is most recommended.  Any suggestions.  Chelsea is 47 pounds, a lab/possible greyhound rescue that is approx. 6 years old, we have had her for 5 years.

 

Is it reasonable to start with the Artemix for a month or so, then maybe switch to pure Artemisinin since it is less expensive...has anybody successfully just used the Artemisinin and not used the Artemix?

 

Thank you for any and all suggestions.

On The Road

Hi Debbie & Chelsea, welcome. Sorry you joined our club but we're here to help make your journey easier so post away, your future posts won't need approval.

I don't have personal experience with Artemisinin but others do so hopefully they can chime in. I can definitely point you to an article that one of our members wrote for us, "What's All This Talk About Artemisinin?" which should give you some leads and pointers for using it in your therapy.

If you do decide to try it we would love to hear how it works for Chelsea. Meanwhile let us know how else we can help you. I'm so glad to hear she's doing well!
