Introduction
Most of us may have heard the name of an indigenous plant found in the East, – Neem. This is the local name for a plant called Margosa-the Indian Neem. Its scientific name is Azadirachta indica.
This is a long living tree, which has come down in Indian mythology as one of the gifts of the gods, given to the people of Jambudwipa- the prehistoric and historic name of the area which consisted of the Indian subcontinent. That is the reason why this plant is worshipped in many ancient traditional rituals of some religious sects in India.

Neem twigs are used as a toothbrush, even today. You break off a twig, chew it to keep your teeth healthy and then brush your teeth with this chewed portion. It is definitely bitter in taste, but you never will ever have to visit a dentist.
No Indian garden is considered to be complete without a Neem tree growing. The idea is that the grandfather is going to plant the Neem tree, and the future generations up to the seventh generation are going to derive benefit of this plant. That is why the first thing one does when one buys a new house is plant a Neem tree and then plant some other fruit trees like mangoes and lemons.
The Neem tree used to grow wild, but it is now cultivated extensively throughout the land. It is estimated that there are about 138 million Neem trees cultivated by farmers in Neem plantations throughout India. We are not talking about the ones which grow completely wild in the forests and in the woods or in your gardens.
There has been a long mythological history of the Neem, coming down the ages. Let me give you one example. The Neem grown on the outskirts of the village, would be worshipped by ancient villagers, who wanted the friendly spirits living on the Neem to grant them their wishes. That is why, they often fed the Neem with milk or buried copper coins underneath the Neem tree. I do not know who took advantage of the buried coins, but I saw this pattern being followed as an adult, when people got to know about the only Neem tree, in the locality, which happened to have been planted by my grandfather four decades earlier. add-to-cart-click-here

Nature has given us cures to every disease known to man in one form or another yet we still choose to pick synthetic treatments full of side-effects over them. These cures are right in front of us but we fail to see them; turmeric is one of these cures hidden in plain sight.
Everyone in the western world knows turmeric when it comes to making curries but it is probably the most underestimated and least popular spice when it comes to its medicinal uses. For starters, turmeric is a plant from which the spice of the same name is obtained. The most common form of turmeric is its powder form, which is of bright yellow color. The use of turmeric for flavoring, for cosmetic purposes and for medicinal uses goes back to the Vedic period in India and it is since then that it has had a massive impact over the region which explains its high demand in most Indian households.
This book will tell you about the health benefits of turmeric and how it cures & help fight fatal ailments. After reading this book, you will be surprised about how little you knew about this super spice and how including it in your daily life can bring back your body from the verge of expiration.

Introduction
The words “spice” in itself conjures up an exotic sense of something rare, something precious and valuable. Blessed be the man, who found out millenniums ago that there were grains, vegetables and fruit, which could be eaten and enjoyed. After that, there were other herbs which could enhance the taste of the pottages he made with the fruit, vegetables and grain. And then came more plant products, which he called spices, which would improve, enrich and heighten the eating experience.
These spices were dried flowers, nuts, pieces of bark and other parts of trees, bushes and shrubs growing around him. Mankind did not instantly and instinctively get to know about these herbs and spices. He just observed his livestock eating some dried berries without any harm coming to them. So he tried those berries with fear and trembling. This is how coffee was discovered millenniums ago by a goat herder in far-off exotic Araby.

He saw his goats munching on the dried berries of a plant. After that, he noticed that those goats were rather frisky and more energetic than their other companions. This adventurous goat herder, decided to collect the berries and grind them, because otherwise, they did not seem to be easily digestible. His wife must have told him to put them in water so that they could soften. Possibly they did not soften, but somebody drank that water. And that somebody showed quite an energetic display of enthusiasm and joie de vivre on a caffeine high.
And so coffee was discovered. So what is the ruling that many of the spices discovered by mankind down the millenniums were found in just such a chance manner?
Some spices are indigenous to particular areas of the world. That is why, they were very precious and used only by aristocrats. Medieval knights going away on their crusades were always told by their ladies to bring home spices. Not only would they gain respect in the eyes of their neighbors for having gone on The Crusades, but they could always sell the spices and become really rich.
Well, they were just following the patterns of their ancestors millenniums ago, when Kings, princes and captured aristocrats were ransomed in spices. Read more..
