DerNeembaum ist eine alte indische Kulturpflanze, die im Ayurveda gegen eine Vielzahl von Erkrankungen und auch im Insektenschutz aller Art (Hausstaubmilben) Verwendung findet.

Das Wort Neem stammt aus dem Sanskrit und bedeutet: Gesundheitsspender und Krankheitserleichterer. Schon vor 3500 Jahren wurde die heilbringende Wirkung des Baumes in religiösen Aufzeichnungen erwähnt, heutzutage ist Neem ein Bestandteil zahlreicher Arzneien und Hygieneartikeln in Indien. Wissenschaftlich erwiesen ist die Tatsache, dass die Wirkstoffe des Neembaums Bakterien, Pilze, Viren und Milben töten.

Die Neem Produkte sind biologisch (certified organic) gewachsen, aber da die amerkanischen Gesetze vorschreiben, das alle zwischenlager (somit auch mein Lieferant) zertifiziert sein müssen, darf NTF das nicht mehr auf die Etiketten schreiben.  Das Oel kommt aus Indien und wird in den USA nochmals auf Reinheit getestet, die Rinde kommt von einer Bio-Farm in Mexico.


Anwendungsgebiete:

Neem wirkt antiviral, entkrampfend, antibakteriell, empfängnisverhütend, antimykotisch, wurmtötend, hypoglykämisch, antihyperglykämisch, insektentötend, nematizid, vermizid, entwässernd, entzündungshemmend, schmerzstillend, fiebersenkend, beruhigend, ZNS-beruhigend. Darüber hinaus konnte eine Wirkung gegen Krebs nachgewiesen werden. Die aus der Rinde des Neem - Niembaumes - gewonnenen Polysaccharide Gia und Gib zeigten Antitumorwirkung gegen Sarcoma-180

Es ist fast schon ironisch das die zwei grössten Hersteller/Vertreiber von Neem Produkten in den USA durch ihre Liebe zu Tieren zum Neem gefunden haben.  Autumn Blum at Organix-South rettet Shih-Tzus, NeemTreeFarms retten Rottweiler und Shar-Peis, alles Rassen die wegen ihrer Probleme mit Haut und Gelenken bekannt sind. Sie sind praktisch auf den Hund, tschuldigung, NEEM gekommen als sie nach Alternativen suchten.

Eingenommen kann Neem-Rindenpulver das immunsystem der Tiere stärken und es ist eine sichere, konzentrierte Quelle an anti-oxidanten die hilft diese Probleme und viele andere zu verbessern.  Neembaum RINDE ist weit weniger bitter als die Blätter, und hat eine höhere Akzeptanz, wichtig bei unseren Fellnasen, denn was bringts wenn sie es nicht fressen wollen.

Zahnpflege:  Wenn man es mit Leckerlis in pastenform mixed (butter, quark usw) und es wie Zahnpaste über die Zähne reibt werden sie weisser.  NFT bietet auch ein Zahnpulver und Mundspürlung (mit Neem und Zimt) für Menschen an, das ist einfach nur genial.


Dosierungsvorschläge NeembaumRINDENmehl:

Für Hunde und Katzen beträgt die Tagesdosis 0.12 g pro Kg Körpergewicht, verteilt auf 2 Gaben. Unters Nassfutter mischen, bei Verweigerung in kleine Kapseln füllen.
NTF gibt Ihren Hunden 1/8 Teelöffel per ca 5 Kg, 2x täglich, 30 Tage lang. Das heisst, ein 18 Kg Hund bekommt bei Ihnen einen halben TL, Mr Rotti mit seinen 55 Kg 'Kampfgewicht' (ich durfte ihn noch kennenlernen, ein 'Monster' wenns ans schmusen ging, da wird man glatt Hundefanl) bekommt 1.5 TL Beim Auswiegen ergibt dasetwa 0.06 g pro KG (jeder wird den Löffel etwas anders abstreichen) pro Dosis.

Eine 5 KG Katze erhält:  1 ML # 1 (0.36 g) 2x täglich
ML # 2 (0.8 g) reicht also locker pro Dosis für 2 Miezen
ML # 3 (2.4 g) reicht für 40 Kg Katze

Manche Naturheilkundige glauben das eine Pause von jedem Wochenende oder auch 1x pro Monat angeraten ist, wenn es langfristig eingenommen wird.
NTF bieten es ihren Hunden in Leckerlis (zB Erdnussbutter) gemischt an, und sagen sie stellen sich an um ihre Potion zu bekommen.  Man muss einfach nur das Lieblingsleckerli der Katze wissen.

Dosierungsvorschläge NeembaumOEL:

Neem-OEL wird auf den Körper sparsam pur aufgetragen (z.B. gegen Demodex Milben), für Augen und Nase 30% Neemoel mit 70% Trägeröl verdünnen, z.B. Rizinusöl.  Tests in verschiedenen amerikanischen Tierschutzorganisationen ergeben, das auch bei Hautproblemen eine Stärke von 30% Neem in einem Trägeröl (z.B. Jojoba) völlig ausreichend zu sein scheint.

NeembaumOEL NICHT ZUM ESSEN/TRINKEN/EINGEBEN



Nebenwirkung:  Keine bekannt.  Neem sollte nicht bei Schwangerschaft oder beim Versuch schwanger zu werden eingenommen werden.  Neem hat ausserdem einen Wirkstoff verwand mit dem in Aspirin

Azadirachta indica

From the very beginning of civilization, mankind has depended upon medicinal herbs to treat a myriad of diseases, disorders and injuries. Even today, more than half of all modern medicines - ranging from aspirin to the newest treatment for breast cancer - are based upon ingredients from plants.

The Advantages Of Neem

Neem, still called "the village pharmacy" in its native India, is one of the most ancient and widely used herbs in the world. In fact, herbalists in ancient India had documented the healing qualities of this remarkable tree long before Western civilization discovered the analgesic qualities of the willow tree from which aspirin is derived.

Perhaps the most significant challenge neem faces is the fact that it appears to be too good to be true. We're not from Missouri, but we're definitely "show me" type people who did a lot of research before opening Neem Tree Farms. So instead of trying to persuade you how wonderful neem is, we've provided a series of links to national and international research on this remarkable tree.

We started growing neem on the indirect advice of the U.S. government, which sponsored a research project that resulted in a book called NEEM: A Tree for Solving Global Problems. The chapter on medicinals (pages 60 to 70) and "next steps" (pages 88 to 99) are particularly interesting.

Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and published by the National Academy Press, the book's contributors and participants include the board of the National Research Council, the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine and the U.S. Department of Agriculture as well as the Board on Science and Technology for International Development.

It's a little difficult to read online and is somewhat outdated (published in 1992) but what struck us most strongly was a paragraph in the foreword:

"To those millions in India neem has miraculous powers, and now scientists around the world are beginning to think they may be right. Two decades of research have revealed promising results in so many disciplines that this obscure species may be of enormous benefit to countries both rich and poor. Even some of the most cautious researchers are saying that 'neem deserves to be called a wonder plant."

Since then, other government agencies, as well as highly respected physicians and physician organizations, have begun compiling databases that include information on neem.

The National Institutes of Health, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and a sister agency to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has created a database of national and international research journals called MedLine. It includes more than 150 documents on neem. To search for neem and a specific question, type neem AND disorder, i.e., neem AND parasites or neem AND antiviral.

MDChoice.com is a privately held company founded by academic physicians and backed by private venture capital. They have developed a unique, patent-pending technology that provides specific, content-focused information from MedLine at the click of a mouse button. Searching for information on neem is somewhat easier than using the main government site and it is much easier to purchase full copies of the articles.

The National Institutes of Health also has documented the myriad uses of neem in its International Bibliographic Information on Dietary Supplements (IBIDS) - which is nicknamed the "Physician's Desk Reference for Herbal Medicines." This database of published, international scientific literature on dietary supplements also includes more than 150 citations on neem. (Interestingly enough, they aren't the same documents listed in MedLine, although there are some overlaps.) Full articles are not available on the site but it's an interesting overview.

One of neem's most important attributes is its effectiveness as a natural pesticide (see the IBIDS database for details). It is proving to be equally effective in repelling pests that affect people, like mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and head lice. Dr. Andrew Weil, a Harvard physician and leading proponent of alternative medicine, has written several articles on neem.

New Study Raises Questions About Pesticide Use

Many Neem Tree Farm customers know that we started growing neem because I’m chemically sensitive – probably because I grew roses and vegetables with standard pesticides and dipped dogs in toxic flea killers nearly every weekend for years. I followed directions on the products exactly, but even 15 years later, I can still come down with a nasty headache if I’m exposed to anything poisonous.

That’s why it didn’t come as a major surprise to me when a new report indicated that women who use insecticides regularly have a higher risk of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, disorders that occur when the immune system attacks the body it should be protecting. It follows an earlier report showing that farmers have a higher risk of auto-immune disorders.
Granted,the risk is still small – only about 2% of adults will develop them – but women who mixed and used the most insecticides appear to have twice the incidence as women who didn’t use them. And because the women involved in the study ranged in age from 50 to 79,they could have been exposed to pesticides that are no longer on the market in the US

But when you combine that report with the fact that some pesticides are pulled after years on the market it’s clear that it’s smart to avoid contact with pesticides whenever possible.

Neem Really Is Snake Oil!

Anytime people who love neem talk to other people about it, our biggest challenge is explaining how one tree does so much. Most herbs have a couple of active compounds and work well when used with very specific symptoms. Neem, of course, is known as the “village pharmacy” so I may talk to someone with diabetes in the morning, arthritis at lunch and gum disease or psoriasis in the evening.

Sometimes I joke about selling snake oil – but it turns out that neem may actually be an effective antidote for snake bites, particularly in rural areas of India where venomous snakes abound and refrigeration for anti-venom is rare.

Scientists at Tezpur University tested a series of traditional botanical treatments against cobra and viper venoms in test tubes and found that a dried methanolic leaf extract significantly inhibited damage from the poisons – stopping anticoagulant activity caused by one cobra venom by 90%.

From the perspective of people in India and Africa, the test once again confirms traditional herbal treatment using neem. It goes a step further, however, by identifying the most active compounds and separating them into a product that’s stable for six months at room temperature.

It’s still years away, but it may save many lives in the tropics where people often arrive in urban emergency rooms where anti-venom is available hours after they the bite.
