with Dr Teitelbaum

Neem is yet another divine very bitter tasting herb that is well known and used extensively in Ayurveda internally and externally. Neem, overall, is used for detoxification, especially of the skin, and for immuno-modulation.
In Sanskrit neem leaf is called nimba. The Ayurvedic text Bhava Prakash describes it as sheeta (cooling), tikta (bitter), grahi (enhancing absorption), katupaka (pungent effect after digestion), and krimipranut (making it hard for harmful microbes to live with).
Neem is one of the most powerful herbs for detoxifying the liver. With the compromised state of the modern physiology and liver in the world today, this herb must be used with extreme caution: if the liver is detoxified too quickly, the old toxins sitting there will go back into the bloodstream and relocate in other parts of the body with the potential to cause serious problems and disease. That’s why Vaidya developed Trans-dermal and Trans–mucosal application of this potent plant.
Neem for the Skin – Transdermally
Neem taken in large doses is very powerful. In fact, the crude form of this herb should not be taken in large doses as it may awaken the detox process faster than the toxins can be safely evacuated. Neem soap, however, delivers many of the properties of neem that support immunity but in a manner that will not overwhelm the body’s detox pathways. 
Another benefit of neem in the transdermal delivery system is that it can be used directly on targeted areas of the skin, when and as/where needed for gentle detox and to support skin immunity. For example, here is what you can expect with the Soap:

  • Transdermal absorption of neem while you bathe
  • Only the prabhavas (special qualities) of neem are delivered. The highly bitter and detoxifying rasa (taste) is not present.
  • Allows for targeted topical application of neem on specific areas of the skin
  • No SLS foaming agent or harsh preservatives found in most soaps
In contrast, the transmucosal delivery has different properties.

  • Gives just the prabhavas (special qualities) and sukshma bhag (subtle essence) of neem without the strongly liver detoxifying bitter taste
  • Provides a gentle delivery of this powerful herb
  • Added to 1 to 2 liters of cool water and sipped throughout the day 
  • Does not have to go through the digestive, metabolic or liver system
  • Although not as detoxifying as whole neem leaf, this herbal-memory nectar should still be used with caution and under the supervision of an SV Ayurveda practitioner. 
With the nectar drops you get the benefit of the prabhavas (specific ultimate effects) of neem without a strong detoxification effect. Nonetheless you should still use caution, even with these drops. Vaidya Mishra recommends that you not use these nectar drops except under the strict supervision of your Shaka Vansiya health practitioner.
The Neem and Brahmi Body Wash is a great favorite of many – with the same transdermal benefits of Neem for the skin and the added properties of Brahmi. It’s a great companion for your daily hand and/or body wash, free from chemicals and preservatives. You have to try it to see what we mean!

If you are not sure the SVA detox is for you, you can schedule a “discovery call” where you get to ask any/all questions you may have to an expert SVA educator. These educators are also experienced detoxers: they have been using the SVA protocols for detox and rejuvenation for decades and can share their personal and professional experiences and details and address any concerns you may have or clarifications you may need so you can take your decision in full confidence.

8 weeks. You will learn practical baby steps for taking care of yourself with full-on support with products and lifestyle guidance.
