Signs and Symptoms of a Parasite Overgrowth

Description

Neem comes from the bark of a tree native to India and it has almost 5,000 years of use in traditional Ayurvedic Medicine. It is reported to have broad spectrum anti-microbial activities and has been used for several skin related infections including smallpox and chicken pox in India[23]. It shows activity against a variety of different microbes including bacteria, yeast, parasites, and viruses[24]. It has been shown to improve oral health[25]. It can improve skin and hair health, which we believe happens because of its microbial balancing properties[26]. It has traditionally been used in India to help combat Malaria[27].

Why We Love Neem – Broad Spectrum Microbial Balance

Neem is an herb I (Dr. Warren) originally got for the clinic as an alternative anti-parasite support formula. We always want 2 or 3 ways of going at any particular problem we encounter on a regular basis. We was already using a more traditional Chinese anti-parasite mixture (which was wormwood based), but we wanted an alternative for the patients that did not work on or who had a bad reaction to the wormwood. It was only after we started using it on more patients that we realized its broader application as a systemic anti-microbial and not only for parasites. It can be a helpful addition for nearly any gut, Lyme, or viral based protocol.

Why We Love Neem – The Babesia Link, Less Famous but More Gentle

Most of the strategies for Babesia are an extrapolation of therapies that are aimed at Malaria which is Babesia worse and more famous cousin. Neem is no exception to this rule. As I looked more into the history of Malaria (I like knowing the history of diseases and their close relatives…It often makes the present more understandable and prevents one from making the same mistakes repeatedly.) I came across the Ayurvedic use of Neem for that condition. I realized the potential for using Neem to nutritionally support patients who have chronic Babesia and I have been very pleased overall with the results.

In my experience Neem is less prone to causing side effects than wormwood and thus I will often recommend Neem in the nutritional support protocol before utilizing the more famous (albeit also often more harsh) wormwood based support. This is a lesson I have learned from the harsh experience of helping many sick people over the past decade of clinical practice. Using Neem before using Chinese Wormwood is my general rule when helping a patient with chronic tick borne illness as it seems to help in a much more gentle way. Many chronically ill patients cannot handle a rough therapy with many side effects when they are already so run down. I theorize the reduced side effects of neem have to do with some of its hepatoprotective effects whereas wormwood can be conversely hard on the liver[28].
