Artemisa

Artemisa

PARTE A UTILIZAR Y FORMAS:

Usaremos las partes aéreas, incluidas las flores pues son las que más artemisinina poseen.

Los textos chinos antiguos recomiendan la preparación en infusión en agua ambiente, y luego machacada y escurrida pasa así extraer el jugo de la planta. Es la forma más potente de extraer los principios activos.

Debemos de saber que algunos principios activos de la artemisa no se disuelven bien en agua, es por ello que los antiguos recomendaban machacarla para así extraer el jugo.

Por otro lado los principios activos también se extraen bien con grasas y/o alcohol.

Por estos motivos, voy a exponer como son las mejores formas de preparar esta planta:

Infusión de la planta fresca: Lo mejor es utilizar unos 100gr de la planta fresca, trocearla y verterle medio litro de aguja caliente por encima, tapar y dejar 12 horas. Luego escurrir y tomar. (Nota, también se puede usar con la planta seca, pero tendremos menos efecto, de hecho es la forma más débil de preparación)

Jugo de la planta: Se licua, y se suele tomar una cucharada al día.

Leche de Artemisa: Es una forma de preparación específica para el tratamiento de la malaria, como señalamos las grasas son buenas a la hora de extraer el principio activo, por ello este preparado. Un litro de leche entera caliente con 100gr de la planta (fresca o seca) y reposar tapado 4 horas.

Tintura madre: Se pica la planta fresca y se mide el peso en gramos, podremos el doble de esa cantidad en alcohol. Se reposa durante dos semanas.

USO EN LA MEDICINA CHINA:

 Dispersa el Calor
 Elimina Calor – Humedad en el Hígado y Vesícula Biliar.
 Elimina, transforma el Tan – Humedad. Tiene una acción importante de eliminar la Humedad de la Vesícula Biliar.
 Enfría la sangre.
 Fiebre en la sangre que se acompaña con dolor de cabeza, mareo y sensación de ahogo.

USOS TRADICIONALES:

Es una planta que se a usado siempre para el tratamiento de los parásitos, sobre todo en sangre e hígado. Por otro lado tiene agentes antitumorales. Estimula la sudación por ello elimina la fiebre, y tiene propiedades emenagogas por ello hace que baje la menstruación.

 

Y por supuesto su función más importante en el tratamiento de la malaria.

ANÁLISIS ENERGÉTICO:

Es de sabor Amargo y tropismo hígado-Vesícula Biliar y Bazo-Estómago.

Artemisa ajenjo

La Artemisa sus propiedades

Es interesante el estudio energético de esta planta, pues como podemos observar por sus cualidades tonificara al elemento Tierra y por otro lado dispersara al elemento Madera.

PROPIEDADES:

Antagonista del calcio Antipalúdico Inmunomoduladora
Antibacteriana Antiparasitaria Antifúngica
Antituoral Esquizonticida Antiinflamatoria
Antiviral

Espectro bacteriológico: Babesia spp. Hepatitis B y C. Toxoplasma gondii. Clonorchis sinensis. Leshmania spp. Trypanosoma spp. Eimeria acervulina y tenella, Neospora caninum. Virus de la diarrea bovina. Opisthorchis viverrini. Fasciola hepática. Plasmodium spp. Virus Epstein-Barr.

Sobre los tumores tiene fuerte actividad sobre ciertas líneas celulares.

BASES CIENTÍFICAS:

La artemisinina se ha convertido en el tratamiento preferido para el tratamiento de la malaria, gracias a que tiene gran actividad sobre las cepas resistentes de este microorganismo. Del 98 al 100 de los microorganismos palúdicos suelen morir al cabo de 24 horas de su administración.

Los componente de la planta tiene una gran actividad sistémica pues llega a todas las partes del cuerpo, incluso atraviesa la barrera hematoencefálica. Es por ello que se utiliza en la malaria cerebral.

A nivel oncológico ha demostrado actividad tanto in vitro como en vivo, en leucemia humana, cáncer de mama, colon, huesos, nódulos linfáticos. Hay evidencia en perros con una mejora a los 15 días de su administración. Hay reportes de trabajos en médicos vietnamitas que reportan grandes mejoras en sus pacientes oncológicos.

A nivel antiinflamatorio e inmunoestimulante, varios estudios demuestran que aumenta la fagocitosis y los macrófagos se hacen más potentes, por ello se elimina mejor los eritrocitos infectados por la malaria.

CONTRAINDICACIONES:

Sabemos que en el uso de esta planta para el tratamiento de la malaria del 25% de las personas presentan náuseas. En casos más excepcionales puede cursar con mareos, acúfenos, prurito y dolor abdominal leve.

Embarazo, sobre todo primer trimestre.

La artemisa genera un leve efecto cronotrópico en el corazón. Provoca una leve hipotensión

INTERACTUACIONES CON OTRAS SUSTANCIAS:

Puede interactuar con el omeprazol.
