West Himalayan Fir Tree has lots of anti-inflammatory healing abilities and also works great for bronchitis and asthma. And West Himalayan Fir Tree has anti-histamine abilities too… making it good for bronchospasms and it also contains some forms of steroids that help in the healing of gastric ulcers.
It also works wonders as a natural antibiotic and has been used for depression too!
West Himalayan Fir Tree can be made into a tincture that also helps with pain, and this tree is full of anti-oxidants thus protecting you from free radicals and age related diseases.
And the juice of the needles has been used in the treatment of coughs, colds, and fever.
And there are many scientific investigations going on about the cancer healing abilities of this tree.
And unlike the Yew Tree this tree is not under threat of disappearing as a species from over harvesting.
