In a previous post, I’ve talked about the amazing benefits of neem oil, but that post was only dedicated to the use of this ingredient alone, however, there are also dozens and even hundreds of neem products that you can use, and in this post, I’m going to talk about neem’s medicinal uses in general.
This post is targeted at all the neem products you can find for sale nowadays, of course, some benefits can be only gotten by using neem creams while others can be achieved by using neem shampoo, you have to decide for yourself what neem product best suits your needs.
The first important neem medicinal use is related to stomach problems.
In this case, if you are suffering from stomach issues, you should use either neem leaves directly or a neem tea preparation, both are amazing and will give you fantastic results.
Neem tea and neem leaves are wonderful against stomach problems because they are going to contain many anti-inflammatory compounds that are going to get rid of toxins and even lower pain levels while increasing your relaxed state and distress your stomach and intestines.
In fact, the anti-inflammatory compounds found in neem products are the ones responsible for the most benefits accredited to neem, the antibacterial compounds are also very important as they are the ones responsible for getting rid of dangerous bacteria in your stomach and intestines, the ones that are causing all your intestinal troubles.
And this is the reason why neem leaves and neem tea has been used successfully for soothing and even lowering the pain related to ulcers.
The second neem medicinal use is related to breathing conditions.
If you are suffering from asthma, influenza or any respiratory disease, then a preparation of neem oil and neem leaves will help you lower the symptoms tremendously.
Again, it’s because neem products contain high amounts of anti-inflammatory compounds and molecules that are going to lower the pain while also easing inhaling and exhaling.
However, don’t think that neem alone is the ultimate remedy for your respiratory problems; you should consult with a doctor before attempting to do anything.
The third neem medicinal use is for oral hygiene.
If you are suffering from gum disease, then chewing neem leaves or using a preparation of warm water and a quarter of a teaspoon of neem oil as a mouthwash daily can help you tremendously get rid of the bacteria causing not only your gum disease, but also halitosis, bad breath, and plaques build up.
The antibacterial compounds are going to help you get rid of your oral troubles while also decreasing your chances of getting flu or influenza.
The fourth medicinal benefit and use of neem is related to healing fevers.
Neem leaves have been used for thousands of years by Indians to lower fevers and help them deal with sicknesses such as malaria and even extremely high fevers.
The reason why neem leaves are so potent against fevers and infections is because they contain a substance close to salicylic acid, the chemical compound found in aspirin that’s responsible for lowering pain symptoms.
In fact, salicylic acid is the one responsible for lowering inflammations in people, and yes, it’s the one responsible for also easing gum disease and respiratory problems.
However, you should never rely just on neem leaves for treating dangers diseases such as high fever or malaria; you should always consult with a doctor.
I mention these information just to make you understand that neem leaves and other neem products are extremely powerful and will help support your immune system and healing faster.
The fifth medicinal use is related to diabetes.
Brewing and drinking neem leaves ‘ tea daily has been reported to lower blood glucose levels, and this is probably the most important information related to the use of neem for diabetes, however, I do not recommend using it because it’s quite risky!
The reason why is because neem leaves are not all the same! Sometimes results may vary tremendously, and this can be quite dangerous, however it’s a wise idea and decision to start drinking neem tea daily if you are suffering from diabetes, of course, you should monitor yourself and talk to your doctor before attempting to do this.
The sixth medicinal use of neem is as a contraceptive substance.
Neem can be used as contraceptive, and in fact, it has been used this way in India for hundreds of years, but please, do not consider it as a very reliable solution, it can hit and miss!
It’s because neem leaves and neem oil contain powerful insecticide compounds that are going to wipe out sperm, but as you have probably learned in science, in each ejaculation there will be millions of sperms and if a woman uses the wrong amount of neem leaves extracts and neem oil, she may have an unwanted pregnancy!
The sixth use is related to head lice.
If your child is suffering from head lice, then using neem oil while covering the hair with a thick towel will exterminate most of these parasites, and this is the reason why I advise women to use neem oil repeatedly for at least ten days.
These are the most important medicinal uses of neem, if you know other ones; please share them in the comment section below.
