Magic Tree "The Cure to all Illness". NEEM.

Azadirachta indica is the scientific name of the health superstar Neem Tree. I was amazed to learn that the word Neem in Sanskrit means; Perfect, complete and imperishable. One thing I love about natural medicine is that you learn amazing remedies and cures from other cultures which can be very helpful in our modern world. Indian ancestors have been utilizing this tree in many ways, it grows in the tropical areas of India and the people call it The Village Drugstore! You can imagine the amazing miracles that this tree has done for the people that have been using it, from generation to generation. Medicinal Properties: Antiviral, antiseptic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-acid and antifungal. Strengthen the immune system. In other words the properties of the leaves, bark and seeds of this tree are countless, natural antibiotic, antiviral, fever reducer, inflammation reducer, etc… everything you need in one. No wonder why in the Indian natural medicine literature is also known as, sarvaroga nivarini which means the cure of all illness. Neem extract is even used as a natural non toxic insecticide and insect repellent. Also Neem oil is used in bath soap, shampoo and lotion because of its skin detoxifying properties. Nature is amazing and everything in it. .Ayurvedic medicine has used the extracts and products of this tree long time ago. You can learn more about it in the ancient Indian books of Natural Medicine Carak Samhita and Susruta Samhita Books.
