Artemisia is also known as Damanak in the Ayurveda (traditional Indian herbal literature). The bitter components and acids render Artemisia an excellent remedy for digestive issues. This is primarily because a bitter flavor on the tongue actually causes the gallbladder to produce and release bile. Contrary to popular belief, it is often too little acid production that leads to most indigestion, not an excess of it. It is also noted as being useful in alleviating fever, expelling parasitic worms like roundworm from the digestive tract, and for its tonic effects. It may also be applied topically to reduce inflammation of insect bites and promote healing. Wormwood is also noted to be useful in treating jaundice, a sign of liver dysfunction.

Artemisia plant belongs to the daisy family Asteraceae. It is an enormous,distinct genus of plants with almost 200-400 species. Artemisia is a herbal plant which includes various species like wormwood, mugwort and sagebrush. Several species are used in herbal medicines.

Why Artemisia is such an important herb and its necessity in today’s times
Artemisia is an efficient remedy for many diseases like – Dengue, Malaria and Chickengunia. With this plant in your house, you will be able to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting affected by dengue and chickengunia. Artemisia is known as Damnak in Ayurveda and carries many Ayurvedic benefits as well. This plant also helps in the recovery from the above mentioned ailments.

The Managing Director of IIP Foundation Mr. Rajesh Goyal said – “It is high time that we all should come forward to not let dengue mosquitoes attack us so a big drive is the need of the hour".

IIP Foundation truly cares about Health and Wellness of people and is focusing on this unique approach to addressing the issue related to spread of Dengue. This drive is about making Delhi NCR free from Dengue and Chickengunia. This is the vision of IIP and with this in mind, we at IIP pledge that within 3 months IIP will give away the Artemisia plants to people at a very nominal cost. Nowadays, most of us are aware of the climate change and the degradation of our environment. Not only India, all the developed nations are lacking in saving the environment and our earth. The latest Paris Submission was on climate change only and all the developed and developing countries had taken the oath to save the environment (Earth) from Global Warming and other environmental issues. But this is not the work of a single person or a country, the whole world has to come forward to save our climate so that natural disasters like the recent one happened in Chennai may not happen again in any other parts of India or in any other country.

Just like the IIP foundation that has came forward to protect the environment and the health of the people specially those suffering from Dengue, Malaria and Chickengunia, everyone must unite in the fight against these diseases and actively use this wonderful, magical plant Artemisia to eliminate these deadly diseases from India and specifically from Delhi NCR. We all are aware that how a few months back Delhi had lost so many lives to Dengue and many people had to undergo this trauma. Dengue and Chickengunia should no longer attack people and must be eradicated.

Let’s prevent Dengue with Artemisia

Human illnesses from mosquito-borne viruses are becoming more common in India, even in areas where they have not been reported before. The chance that you will fall ill from a mosquito bite is high; however you can reduce your chances of becoming ill by protecting yourself from mosquito bites.

There are basically two ways to prevent problems from mosquito bites. The first is to control or reduce mosquito populations as much as possible.

The second prevention tool is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.

Mosquito repellents may keep mosquitoes at bay, but excessive use of these products for long periods could pose some serious health risks. According to the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission, US, “ long-term use of Alithrin and Prallethrin, the two major chemicals in these products, are hazardous to human health. They primarily affect our respiratory and immune systems, and in extreme cases, even our nervous system”

Smoke-based mosquito repellents such as coils can trigger wheezing attacks, especially in those who are prone to allergies and asthma Experts believe that excessive use of mosquito repellent creams and lotions too must be avoided. “It is a myth that these substances remain on the skin and so can’t have any adverse effects. Actually, lotions eventually get absorbed into the body and enter the bloodstream. So the safety of these products is also questionable”

The manufactures say, “If consumers adhere to the directions of use as mentioned on the labels, there should not be any problem. For instance, one should always use liquid vaporizers with the windows open, and avoid excessive use of lotions and creams”

The rebuttal from customer is “What is the point of using a vaporizer if the windows are kept open? It would only mean inviting more mosquitoes to come in”

The question here is
Is it possible to avoid the use of mosquito repellants altogether?

We at IIP Foundation say “Why not”
Plants represent one of the most accessible resources available for mosquito control by communities for centuries and at IIP Foundation we believe that there should be a continued use of this natural resource to add value to the current mosquito and mosquito-borne disease control strategies. Keeping this in mind we have started a “Dengue Free Drive” and we invite all of you to be a part of this drive.

Artemisia is a Natural herb that can be kept at home, office, schools, institutions, hospitals etc. for eliminating Mosquito population. When a mosquito sits on this plant and sucks it juice it affects his nervous system and in turn it become ineffective to breed further. You can place it both indoors or out doors. It is a therapeutic plant that will help to prevent yourself and your loved ones from deadly diseases like
✔ Dengue
