NEEM – A Tree For Solving Global Problems


the indian Neem tree neem trees thrive in poor dry regions building new soil where overgrazing and
deforestation have ruined the land the tree is now widely planted in
damaged areas the ayurveda india’s ancient folk medicine prescribes
neem for a range of disorders such as skin infection parasites and fevers twigs are sold for tooth sticks natural tooth brushes used throughout
southeast asia there many kinds but neem is the best for dental health
this toothpaste factory near stuttgart is one of three in the area using the neem as an ingredient production is high and its invaluable to
farmers as a fertilizer it’s more powerful
than farmyard manure and it keeps insect predators at bay added to cattle feed neem cake provides extra nutrition in
famine times and helps to treat intestinal parasites in the household and the granary Neem has long been used as an insect
repellent leaves spread between clothes and
blankets keep moths away leaves or oil mixed with grain keep
it insect free during months of storage the unique power of the neem tree
immediately protecting the cabbage from the attacks of its insects predators.
They may be present and they may be hungry but they don’t eat that’s Neem’s anti-feedant effect is there any possibility that it’s toxic to human beings the beauty of this is it’s remarkable
specificity for insects it has no toxicological significance for humans or most forms of of wildlife, birds, fish how broad spectrum of insects does it act on actually it’s very good in that regard The US Department of Agriculture has tested
over two hundred species of pest insects over ninety percent of which
responded in one manner or another. That’s remarkable! The Neem is effective
against fungal infections parasites and bacteria and in the battle against malaria. In
preventing Chagas disease Neem saves lives. We created practically a sensation because we are looking at Neem derivatives as substitutes for the synthetic pesticides synthetic pesticides are weapons of mass destruction killing all the insects around whether harmful or not and threatening other forms of life, including us residues contaminate soil and water ways and their on our food the Neem we’ve tested has been every bit as good as even the best conventional pesticides it’s quite crazy to go around destroying
our forests in the way that we do scientists are using the vast range of
modern analytic technology to take the neem tree apart, individual compounds can be synthesized and mass-produced for the global pesticides market. people
who live within the Neem Tree could profit from an international market
that cut them out particularly the pesticide industry. The farmer can easily make extract and apply it to the field with out worrying about having to identify the active ingredients products used for millennia by third world countries, end up profiting first-world
corporations they own the plantations control of distribution or these days may even have a patent on the active molecule GAT was drawing an intellectual property
rights and patents in to a world trading system and that’s when decided this is what i must work on because it was really about the most fundamental fabric of our moral existence
existence over the past decade we have been gaining ground and when i say we i mean ordinary people committed to the welfare of all of humanity all people irrespective of gender and
class and race and religion all species on the planet we managed to take the biggest
government and one of the largest chemical companies to court on the case of Neem and win a case against them W R Grace and the U S government’s patent
on Neem was revoked by a case we brought along with the greens of
european parliament and the international organic agriculture movement we won because we worked together

  1. I use neem to wash my hair with amla and shikakai, and it is a good wash if your hair has been dirtied (like when i worked at a pet shop) saved me from transmitting any illnesses i had at work to my pets at home 🙂

  2. I use neem leaf powder. Mix it with a little water and make it into a paste as a facial and to help with my eczema. It does help.

  3. I had a gigantic neem tree in my backyard, back in Pakistan.. looked amazing.

    whenever somebody in our house (close family) needed to treat skin problems (i.e. acne), the neem was one of the first things that came to mind.

    i think its excellent for treating skin related problems, acne especially. try mincing some leaves, mixing in water/milk and drinking, or make neem tea.. but I must warn you, it is extremely bitter! i couldn't even take 5 small sips.

  4. The Neem Tree's medicinal properties have been known in India for many thousands of years. Neem is now cultivated all over the world providing there is enough light. It is especially useful in reforestation and afforestation (the process of establishing a forest on land that is not a forest), as it is tolerant to high temperature, aridity and high concentration of salts in soil and adapts to degraded and acid soil. It functions as a wind-break & constantly sheds leaves providing organic matter.

  5. Neem is found in the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, the Far-East, Pacific Islands, Australasia, Central and South America, some parts of North America (eg California and Florida) and Africa.

  6. I have just bought some Neem trees and would like to plant one in my yard but need to know if it could damage my house or walls with its root. Would it be a good idea to keep it at 10ft by pruning?…on the other hand, I'm not sure the Mexico City climate would be proper for it but I want to try. Please HELP!

  7. I've seen many Neem trees (I got some) near walls, and trhough several years watching them growing from sprouts to blossoms (they put tiny flowers) here in Bahia, Brazil, there's not even a scratch on the paint. By the way, the soil is most sand, and the climate here is getting unbearable hot.

  8. There is not enough sunshine in England for Neem. The only Neem trees growing in England that I know of are in the Eden project in Cornwall and they do not appear as healthy as trees in the tropics.

  9. You can order one on line and they live in dry dessert areas in higher temps, they can not freeze and they grow with out allot of water. type Neen tree into a search and you should be able to find many web pages with information on them.

  10. Friends in south Florida are growing neem trees in their back yard. You can order it online and grow it inside your apartment if you control the temperature.

  11. Great tree i have. Like 2500 in my farm,i. Uses for Many things here, my farm is in ixtepec Oaxaca. México .

  12. The wonderful creation of our Heavenly father! always for the benefit of mankind!!!
    Beauty of creation…who can compare?

  13. I saw one of these trees here in Florida at a place called "Echo" that helps the poor. I was amazed at what I heard about its properties. The toothpaste I have of it works wonders, and now I am growing neem from seed. Too long our treatments has been pesticides from WWII we need to look at things that do not benefit large companies. This is for real.

  14. @snehaRajurkar Thanks for your comment. Chewing Neem leaves cured my pain and inflammation after an unsuccessful root canal procedure.

  15. At the age of 19 I had 2 little white spots on my body. Although I followed doctor's medicines. It is cured by eating 5 baby leaves of Neem every day with water kept in Copper jug for 8 hours. It cured it and it never came back. Since it acts as contraceptive, the advise of Ayurvedic practitioner/doctor is advised. Application of paste made of Neem leaves powder on face , helps get the glow, kill the bacteria and get rid of pimples…Besides, it reminds me of my childhood in India..relaxation

  16. I have psoriasis and im taking these neem and it works but i get little bit reaction like itching after im taking this. Bcoz thats how it works! It kills all bacteria and boosting my immune systm. And remove scales on my skin.now little by little my skins are healing thanks for this devine tree that i can find any where in street here in dubai. By the way im a filipino who working only here. Hope i can help to others who suffers in this kind of illness.

  17. I prefer this as tea sometimes i chew 3 fresh leaves while driving funny huh! But its true. If i saw this anywhere here in the street i just stop and picking some leaf chew it directly. And its good for the smokers like me bcause of bitterness of the leaf i forget the taste of cigarete. Thanks for its benefits neem. I stop taking my worst ointment

  18. Neen trees should be combined with soil nitrogen enriching casuarines ,moringas and eucalips as windbreakers in pongamia pinnata planned plantations in western Queensland ,Northern Territory and Western Australia
    Also as fence trees for roads and huge stations all over those lands in Australia ,easily doubling Australia forrest coverage!

  19. I've just started sleeping with powdered neem leaf on my teeth to combat the sore tooth and rot. It works very very well x

  20. We eat young Neem leaves and flowers in Cambodia. It's called Sdao in Khmer. We make salad out of it called Nhoam Sdao. Soak the young branch with leaves and flowers in boiling water. Collect leaves and flowers only, mix with shredded cucumber, grilled or boiled fish, tamarind, fish sauce. Its bitterly beautiful.

  21. neem is badass. it kills all the spider mites in my garden while somehow leaving the good bugs like ladybugs unharmed.

  22. I learned a lot from this video and the information on neem is overwhelming and astonishing. God was looking out for all of us.

  23. the west has known since they started widely using the uber toxic pesticides in the late 50's early 60's..i know a guy who was working in the pesticide industry & he tells me that they knew, but they had a profit to be made.. human sociological ignorance, fear & greed generally stops the solutions from occuring..but, humanity tends to eventually move forward, it helps if there are alert citizens making demands on the govt & industry leaders, one way is to not buy their products

  24. i would imagine… you might want to go to a naturopath and/or a gastro intestinal doctor… bentonite clay & diatamaceous earth are supposed to also be great for parasites… also, lots of raw garlic, raw honey, papaya seeds & ginger & lot's of fiber… are good to eat on a regular basis for parasite removal & prevention

  25. My mother a medical doctor now 94 got to know Neem in India and later found it used in Africa. She has believed in this plants medicinal implications for 50 years. Please share this unique plant God gave us with every one.

  26. It's a travesty and a sin that as a species we would rather destroy the planet to make a quick dollar than to utilise the abundant natural miracles that nature has supplied and continues to supply!!
    Shame on us!!!

  27. What? The US government had neem tree patented? What a despicable, greedy, bullying government. This is a bunch of pirates making their own laws to allow them to bully and rob from the weak and helpless. No one human or group of humans has the right to patent a single plant or animal or anything that occurs naturally. They are owned by nature and will always belong to nature because they were not created by any humans and can not be a property of the human species. If an animal or a plant dies, and if you can not bring it back to life again, then you are not the creator of it, therefore you have no right to say it is yours. To think it belongs to you is akin to enslavery of that which does not belong to you. We enslave the Earth and every animals on this planet. The thing about human beings is that they think this whole planet and everything on it belongs to them and no other creatures. What a confused bunch of bullying big apes. Humans = A destructive macrovirus to nature.

  28. For many generation my great grandparents have been growing neem tree. Now i am suprised a neem tree which grows in my garden was a patent for America.

  29. Good work. In international trade certain things we'll have to respond in correct methods. Our Ayurvedic Science is one of them, if our Govts become ignorant, patents will get invoked. When we have a good stable govt, getting into correct international trade becomes more sensible.
