The Ultimate Herb.
Although neem is one of the most ancient and most widely used herbs on earth, intense scientific investigations of the properties of neem are only now being undertaken. These studies are quickly verifying the efficacy of its traditional uses and are finding even more uses for neem. This illustrates again that traditional wisdom can guide the efforts of modern science in discovering remedies for human ailments.
From almost the very beginning of recorded human history, people have taken advantage of the remarkable neem tree. Even before ancient herbalists discovered the analgesic qualities of the willow tree-from which aspirin is derived -people used branches, fruit and leaves from the neem tree to cure many illnesses. Its medicinal qualities are outlined in the earliest Sanskrit writings and its uses in Hindu medicine date back to very remote times. Even today, rural Indians refer to the neem tree as their "village pharmacy" because it cures diseases and disorders ranging from bad teeth and bedbugs to ulcers and malaria.
Modern scientists are finding even more uses for this remarkable tree. The seeds, bark and leaves contain compounds with proven antiseptic, antiviral, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer and antifungal use. Although major studies to conclusively prove neem's effectiveness are limited by financing and the general lack of knowledge in the west about it, preliminary studies suggest exciting uses for neem:
Many of the more difficult to treat disorders against which neem has proven to be effective include heart disease, disease, diabetes, psoriasis, malaria, ulcers, Candida and gum disease. These diseases do not always respond to the most advanced treatments available through modern medicine. Neem offers its users the ability to take action against these and other seemingly intractable diseases with a safe and time-proven herb.
