Professor Dr. Heinrich Schmutterer, Wettenberg, Germany, world renowned scientist, entomologist, Neem expert and researcher, author of the book “The Neem Tree”, he is called “Father of Modern Neem,” formerly with the Institute of Phytopathology & Applied Zoology, Justus-Liebig University, Giessen, Germany, now retired, contributor to the book “Neem: A Tree For Solving Global Problems.”
Klaus Ferlow, a well-known and highly respected master herbologist from Canada, has recently published a very remarkable new book, entitled “Neem – Natures’ Healing Gift to Humanity”. It is a true mine of valuable information about this unique plant, especially on the medical properties of the tree’s ingredients. A lot of interesting old and new knowledge of Neem has been compiled in a attractive form, allowing it easy and effective utilization. K. Ferlow became a fan of Neem since the extracts of this outstanding tree had cured himself from severe psoriasis. Hopefully, this attractive new book will find a wide distribution and at the same time facilitate the use of Neem to the benefit of mankind.

The recently published book “Neem: Nature’s Healing Gift to Humanity”, authored by Klaus Ferlow of Canada, is a milestone in itself and splendid account of the miraculous healing properties of the Neem tree. Azadirachta indica A. Juss (Meliaceae), for the benefit of humankind.
His book is an excellent succession to an earlier publication “Neem – A Tree for Solving Global Problems” (National Academy Press, Washington, DC, 1992).
Since ancient times, Neem has been used in India for relieving sickness and its medicinal uses are well documented in Ayurveda. Every part of the tree has some medicinal uses. Mr. Ferlow’s personal experience in treating his own chronic skin rash and psoriasis problem with Neem is an excellent example confirming Neem’s potential for healthier living. The very name of the Neem tree, “Nimba” in Sanskrit language, denotes its medicinal properties and is synonymous with “Arishtha”, meaning the reliever of sickness. “Pichumarda.” another name of Neem in Sanskrit means the destroyer of leprosy and healer of skin infections. Mr. Ferlow’s book will stimulate further research across the globe to explore Neem’s potential for providing affordable and lasting solutions to challenging human health problems. I am sure this book will be widely read all over the world.

In a world in which ever larger numbers of people are recognizing the limitations of new-to-nature, highly targeted pharmaceuticals, multi-target botanicals are increasingly embraced. But even in nature’s treasure trove, Neem has few rivals. I struggle to think of anyone better qualified than Klaus Ferlow to present the case for Neem as a botanical panacea for today’s health challenges.

“Neem – Nature’s Healing Gift to Humanity”. With this book, Klaus Ferlow has created a profound and comprehensive work, one which should be a handbook in every household. This book, with its vivid descriptions of Klaus’ own experiences, illustrates the Neem tree’s significance for health, and is eminently readable, even for the lay person. It helps every reader find his or her stake in better health. A wealth of medicinal plants are suitable for very different purposes and applications. But none have fascinated us more deeply than the Neem tree, a truly multi-talented medicinal plant. Thank you so much for this excellent book! http://www.plan-verde.com
I am supporting the “Neem Pilot Project with Heart, Piura, Peru“of my German friends, Elke & Stephan Krueger in my book “Neem: Natures Healing Gift to Humanity” by writing a chapter with the title “The Tree that heals Nations.“
They started in 2009 an ambitious plan at a time they hardly knew where to start since they were only two people with a shoestring budget. It is amazing what two people with passion can achieve since their goal was helping Peruvians helping themselves! In the meantime they both have planted in the Piura region in northern Peru close to the Ecuadorian border over 250.000 Neem trees. More detailed information you find in my book!
