Neem: The Ultimate Herb
Neem: The Ultimate Herb
Description
Introduction

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:

Psoriasis- Neem seed oil and leaf extracts have been successfully treating the symptoms of psoriasis. It relieves the itching and pain while reducing the scales and redness of the patchy lesions.

Diabetes- Oral doses of neem leaf extracts reduced insulin requirements by between 30% and 50% for nonketotic, insulin fast and insulin-sensitive diabetes.

AIDS- The National Institutes of Health reports encouraging results from in vitro tests for neem as an antiviral agent against the AIDS virus.

Cancer- Polysaccharides and limonoids found in neem found in neem bark, leaves and seed oil reduced tumors and cancers without side effects in a number of different studies.

Heart disease- Neem extracts have delayed the coagulation of blood, calmed erratic heartbeats and helped reduce elevated heart rates and high blood pressure.

Herpes- Recent tests in Germany show that neem extracts are toxic to the herpes virus and can aid in a rapid healing of cold sores.

Periodontal disease- German and American researchers have proven that neem extracts prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Dermatology- Neem is highly effective in treading skin disorders like acne, eczema, itching, dandruff and warts.

Allergies- Neem has antihistamine propertied that help inhibit allergic reactions when applied externally or consumed as a decoction.

Ulcers- Neem extracts give significant protection from discomfort and speed the healing of gastric and duodenal lesions.

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.

Back of the Book

NEEM, The Ultimate Herb is the most comprehensive book about neem available. This book presents current information about neem, one of the most ancient and widely used herbs on earth. A major herbal ingredient in Ayurvedic preparations, neem has been revered in India for over 4,000 years, yet is almost unknown to the West.

Neem has historically been used to help the body fight both temporary and chronic conditions. It is this long history of successful use against many diseases and ailments that provided the impetus for the hundreds of scientific studies into the properties and uses of neem that this book details.

Called possibly the most promising of all plants, neem yields a wide array of products. They range from non-toxic pest control to inexpensive medicines for many of the world's worst diseases and birth control for both men and women. This book concentrates on the medicinal properties while providing enough information about all of neem's marvelous attributes to answer most questions.

This book also provides easy-to -understand instructions for using neem along with credible scientific evidence as to its effectiveness. After finishing this book, you will understand and appreciate the amazing qualities in neem. You will also be able to more intelligently select quality neem products for your own use.

JOHN CONRICK has been a driving force in introducing neem to the United States for almost twenty years. Founder and Director of the Neem Association, John continues to promote neem for its medicinal and ecological properties. His efforts have directly resulted in a number of neem -based health and beauty aid companies, thousands of neem trees planted in the United States and neem tree plantations in Mexico, the Bahamas and Haiti.

If you have a serious or recurring illness, please see a competent natural health practitioner or physician. The statements made in this book, unless specifically referenced, could be the author's opinion, based upon extensive research and personal experience.

In the Indian Ayurvedic tradition, no single herb or preparation is abused. Balance is maintained in the body, the mind and in any measures taken to correct imbalance. It is in that environment that the safety and efficacy of neem have been evaluated.

Neem is an herb with a wide-range of properties that can affect different people in many different ways. It should be used only for short periods of time and only as long as necessary.

Since everyone's body is different and reactions to products can vary from extremely positive to extremely negative, use of any product or even food should be curtailed immediately if any side effects or changes in bodily function appear. This holds true for neem and any other herb or new food.

Test your own tolerance or sensitivity to neem in small incremental steps, first on the skin, then in minute quantities orally. Again, if any7 sings appear of intolerance for neem, stop its use immediately.

More than half of modern drugs – ranging from aspirin to the newest, most beneficial drugs for treating breast cancer – are based on ingredients from plants. Medical practitioners on the Indian subcontinent have produced a wealth of plant-based medical knowledge that is unequaled in the world. While modern medicine has largely ignored the Ayurvedic medical tradition, recent reviews of the proven efficacy of ancient natural treatments are finally gaining respect both internationally and in the U.S.

Among the thousands of plants used in Ayurveda, one plant in particular is generating intense scrutiny as traditional uses for the remarkable neem tree are verified and expanded. Even as this book is being written, new discoveries are being made for preventing and curing human illnesses with neem. Neem is proving to be more than just the "village pharmacy" of ancient India; it is becoming the 'ultimate herb" of today and tomorrow.
