Update 1: May 2010 Allium Sativum
Production of garlic oil: We now recommend that garlic oil be used very soon after being prepared. New information has become available. We no longer recommend keeping garlic oil for one month because of the danger that bacteria may produce the botulism toxin. Botulism intoxication causes paralysis.
Therefore, please amend your anamed books as written below:
“Natural Medicine in the Tropics I: Foundation Text” page 72.
“Natural Medicine in the Tropics II: Seminar Handbook” pages 8 and 23.
“Aids and Natural Medicine”, pages 30 and 35.
Take one part of crushed garlic and mix with two parts of vegetable oil. Mix thoroughly. If you have no reliable refrigerator, use it within one day. If you do have a good refrigerator, use within one week.
Update 2: April 2012 Treatment of malaria in pregnancy with A-3 tea: We have modified our recommendations in line with changes in the recommendations for the treatment of malaria in pregnancy by the WHO.
See “Natural Medicine in the Tropics II: Seminar Handbook” page 34.
1. Pregnant women in the first Trimester:
Until recently the WHO advised against the use of artemisinin derivates during the first trimester. Only quinine (20 mg per kg bodyweight per day for 7 days) was recommended. In the latest edition (2010) of “Guidelines for the Treatment of Malaria”, the WHO has changed its stance; “However, weighing these risks against the evidence that artesunate reduces the risk of death from severe malaria, both artesunate and quinine may be considered as options until more evidence becomes available. Treatment must not be delayed ...”. In the light of both this statement and the feedback we have received from our co-workers, we feel that, with the agreement of your doctor, we can recommend the use of artemisia tea to treat malaria even in the first trimester, but not in the first week of pregnancy. Drink also 2 litres of lemon grass tea every day.
