Current Projects



Herbal Possibilities


Drugs used to treat malaria are derived from the wormwood herb then combined with an antibiotic to increase effect. In 2007 Kathy Garber and her team at Mountain Meadow Herbs researched and developed a combination of liquid herbal extracts to treat malaria along with a second combination to heal the liver damage and help the body fully recover.

Twenty four bottles of what was hoped to be life saving gold colored liquid was sent to a Uganda Orphans Fund Clinic in the Kasozi village of Uganda along with forms to document results. Three months later an email was received stating the herbs were working within twenty four hours even in severe cases. Family constraints have prevented the further pursuit of this option for the next two years.

Kathy Garber plans to revive this project in the early summer of 2011, beginning with identifying and partnering with an existing nonprofit in Mozambique or Ghana, Africa. This will ensure preliminary data can be properly collected to verify the herbal combination is effective enough to warrant the clinical trials needed to establish it as an effective means to treat malaria.

The need for a natural prophylactic means of avoiding contracting malaria is huge. The prophylaxis drugs such as Mefloquine have side effect ranging from unpleasant to severe and can cause permanent damage to the liver. Research for this project will begin in April of 2011.



The Magnetic Answer


Researchers at the University of Washington have discovered a method of treating malaria with magnetic fields that could prove revolutionary in controlling the disease the World Health Organization calls one of the world's most complex and serious human health concerns. While Henry Lai, UW research professor of bioengineering, says the initials results are promising more research is needed to ensure no harm is done to the host. This is highly unlikely. "It's a very weak magnetic field, just a little stronger than the earth's. The difference is that it is oscillating." To read entire article follow this link http://uwnews.org/

David Amriem a brilliant scientist and naturopathic doctor from Switzerland has successfully developed a prototype applying this new oscillating magnetic technology and tested it with impressive results in Ghana Africa. As this technology is further developed the goal is to produce a small devise powered by either solar energy or a car battery and make it available to every village that needs one.

In this project The William and Lydia Foundation will be involved in funding the clinical trials needed to establish the effectiveness and safety of the magnetic device and when approved it's distribution to the areas that need this intervention most.
