The Cure for Malaria

File:Neem (Azadirachta indica) in Hyderabad W IMG 6976.jpgNeem (Azadirachta indica) is a tree in the mahogany family Meliaceae. It is one of two species in the genus Azadirachta, and is native to IndiaMyanmarBangladeshSri Lanka,Malaysia and Pakistan, growing in tropical and semi-tropical regions. Other vernacular names include Neem (HindiUrdu and Bengali), Nimm (Punjabi), Arya Veppu (Malayalam), Azad Dirakht (Persian), Nimba (Sanskrit and Marathi), DogonYaro (in some Nigerian languages), Margosa, Neeb (Arabic), Nimtree, Vepu, Vempu, Vepa (Telugu), Bevu (Kannada), Kohomba (Sinhala), Vembu (Tamil), Tamar (Burmese), sầu đâu, xoan Ấn Độ (Vietnamese), Paraiso (Spanish), and Indian Lilac (English). In East Africa it is also known as Muarubaini (Swahili), which means the tree of the 40, as it is said to treat 40 different diseases.
Neem is a fast-growing tree that can reach a height of 15–20 m (about 50–65 feet), rarely to 35–40 m (115–131 feet). It is evergreen, but in severe drought it may shed most or nearly all of its leaves. The branches are wide spread. The fairly dense crown is roundish or oval and may reach the diameter of 15–20 m in old, free-standing specimens. 

This is the 'Sacred Tree'. The tree loved beyond all others. This is the "Tree of Life".

The Neem tree has long been the prevention of malaria in Africa.  It acts a disinfectant for the liver, where malaria develops.  In the presence of the Neem, malaria is not given the opportunity to develop and is ultimately broken down.  The Neem is the most common tree in West Africa and a branch with some leaves is readily available to boil as tea.  It is suggested that it is taken once a week, as excess can weaken the liver.

Doctors will say that there is no vaccination for the disease, but actually there does exist a homeopathic vaccination.   Newton Labs has tincture that should be taken at least one month before travel.....

If you should get the disease, there is a Chinese herb called artesunate, also readily available at most pharmacists in West Africa.
