Is Artemisinin a Good Alternative Treatment for CLL?
What is an alternative treatment for CLL? I've heard about artemisinin. I would like to try it. I am in remission now. I don`t want to have chemo any more if I can help it. My question is do you think it would be worth trying?
Artemisinin is an effective worm medicine but is not effective for CLL. Actually there does not appear at this time to be an effective alternative treatment for CLL.
