• The Immune System's Handy-Man

    Neem. It's an Ayurvedic powerhouse, used in a variety of treatments from digestive concerns to insect repellent, from coughs and colds to malaria, from treating intestinal parasites to a natural household disinfectant, from acne to serious rashes. As an herbalist, I often hear India's Neem tree likened to America's Dandelion.  It's an easy comparison to make; both are prolific and grow like weeds, both have wonderful and diverse medicinal properties, neither really gets the attention they deserve, and both can be used to make beer!
