This is a link to a search for postings in the last 24 hours for "covid-19 cure". I just thought I would take a look. the results are pretty interesting. I particularly like the tea cure from the president of Madagascar.

Google Search - covid-19 cure

They got nothing on us. Our stable genius of a president has already discovered the ultimate cure: intravenous Lysol plus a long UV light up your butt. It actually works. It does kill the virus, since it kills the host, then the virus dies out as well as the virus needs live cells to proliferate.

Please take COVID-19 seriously; don't panic but don't deny it; practice social distancing (stay 6ft from people); wash your hands a lot, don't touch your face, don't gather with too many people, so that you help us contain it.

Funny story about artemisia: It's a traditional Chinese medicine antibacterial, and has been used for centuries. A Chinese doctor decided to test it in proper fashion against malaria. It works, and she won the Nobel Prize for Medicine!

My wife has used it sometimes when her unknown Lyme-like disease flairs up. It actually works for that, which suggests it may be some kind of microbial parasite she picked up in her Veterinary Pathology work. Nobody has been able to diagnose it, and she's tried many times. Maybe because it's almost never seen in humans.

One thing those tonic drinkers might want to know is that you should only use it for a few weeks, at least at the dosage my wife takes.

My niece's husband contracted Lyme Disease, a pretty bad case of it.
Can you give me a link to the actual stuff your wife uses so I can recommend it to him, please?

Was that before, or after, it was just going to disappear?

Hopefully he got treated with doxycycline or similar antibiotic for the acute infection.

I'm pretty sure she gets it on Amazon. It's called:

Swanson Full Spectrum Wormwood Herbal Supplement - 425 mg

It's from Artemisia annua

The VA has been taking pretty good care of him but I sent him the link anyway. His stress is exacerbating the issue right now.
This guy...if you met him, you'd never think he was sick at all...he's definitely what some women would label a "hunk".

And he IS a hunk...he's a great big fellow, lots of muscles, good looking. My niece, of course, thinks the sun rises and sets around him.

But losing his job amid the pandemic has probably hit him pretty bad, I'm afraid.

That artemisa seems to work pretty well for the continuing symptoms some Lyme sufferers get after their acute treatment. This usually takes the form of cyclic illness, which may be autoimmune, or it may be a sequestered infection or parasite coming out of hiding now and than. In my wife's case, she had a tubal ligation and asked the surgeon to have a look around in her abdomen while he was in there. He noted a active lesion and adhesions, but nobody has ever been able to culture anything. I guess we'll find out at her autopsy!

Around here doctors are threatened with loss of their license if they actually try to help these folks.
