Health Benefits of Cajueiro or Cashew Nut Shells

Cajueiro or Cashew Nut shells contain a very caustic oil that has great healing qualities for those with diabetes. It’s not an over night cure… it takes 3 to 5 weeks for the effects to take place. But modern medicine is looking at the Cashew Nut Shell Oil as a good possibility as a cure for diabetes. The oil must be heated… because the raw the oil is too caustic to be used… and then the heat-treated oil can be used to make a tincture. This oil does not have the side effects of liver damage, excessive weight gain… or kidney toxicity. And Cajueiro is successful in curing those with leishmaniasis over 60% of the time and more than 85% successful in curing those with schistosomiasis both parasitic diseases. Plus the oil has been used successfully to treat warts and corns… plus the oil of the seed is a good amebacide for those suffering from internal ameba parasites. And the leaves of the tree can be used as a gargle for mouth ulcers… plus the bark of the tree can be used for weakness, asthma, and skin disease.
