Find out about Yamoa Powder for asthma, allergies, and more.

Herbal medicine such as Yamoa Powder is now described as “complementary”, or “alternative” medicine. But, in reality, it is the original medicine. Nature has provided us with an almost incomprehensible number of healing substances that work in harmony with our bodies in a way that modern science is only just beginning to understand. 

Yamoa Powder

What we find time and time again in our research at Neter Vital, is that modern science often confirms what ancient people already knew when it comes to healing herbs. This article is about a herb you may not have heard of. It is made of the bark of a rare African tree (a rubber tree known as Funtumia Elastica) and has been used for centuries but has recently gained attention in the west thanks to an African shaman named Yamoa bringing it to London. For this reason, the powder is sometimes known as Yamoa powder.. We have obtained a very high quality supply of this bark and have named our brand Shu powder, after the Egyptian deity associated with the breath.

Yamoa powder recently became something of a sensation amongst people suffering from asthma, seasonal allergies and other respiratory conditions. People report dramatic improvements, sometimes after a single dose.

Traditionally it was used to treat respiratory health and infectious diseases, and modern research is starting to uncover just how effective it is. It contains an active ingredient, YAM-1 which appears to help the immune system respond to inflammation. Inflammation is a normal bodily response, but excessive inflammation is the cause of many health conditions. In asthma and some allergies, the lungs become constricted due to excessive inflammation, and this is what YAM-1 seems to mitigate.

The pandemic has brought respiratory health to the forefront of everybody’s minds, and while the news is filled with stories about mRNA vaccines and newly developed drugs, what many people do not know is that many herbal remedies have been investigated for treating covid patients. For example, we recently wrote about the research showing that black cumin seed (nigella sativia) has been suggested by many scientists as a potential covid treatment. See our Nigella Sativa and Covid article

From what we have learnt about this remarkable root, it warrants serious investigation for covid and other respiratory diseases. We all know that covid is a mild disease for most people, but for some it is deadly. Often what differentiates the mild cases from the deadly ones is inflammation. Inflammation is controlled by proteins called cytokines, some diseases like covid can cause what is known as a, “cytokine storm” where the immune system produces an excessive number of cytokines which can lead to organ failure and death. This is one of the reasons that anti-inflammatory drugs are often given to covid patients. You can read a study about this here. 

Inflammation is also the reason that certain anti-inflammatory herbs have been investigated for covid, including black cumin seed. So we hope that powder bark is also investigated, although at the moment it is very new to modern science.

The research currently available regarding Yamoa powder, although in its early stages, reveals some extremely interesting properties. Since there were so many reports of asthma suffers experiencing great benefits from the herb, scientists started to investigate it in detail.

This article  an interesting summary of the findings so far. For example, one study looked at the effect that Yamoa had on immune cells in mice and cattle. They found that Yamoa activated innate immunity. Another study investigated how the immune system was enhanced by Yamoa and found that it increased the number of T-cells in calves that had been fed the powder. It has also been confirmed that calves fed with Yamoa had reduced inflammatory markers. This gives an important clue to how it may help asthma, by reducing inflammation in the airways. Anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties have also been discovered. It seems that Yamoa powder can fight disease by enhancing the immune system and reducing inflammation.

The research is still in its infancy, but reports from all over the internet show that people are experiencing incredible relief from asthma and other respiratory problems.

Our Shu powder comes from a source of Funtumia Elastica grown in the perfect conditions to ensure the highest concentration of activie ingredients. We recommend it for anybody experiencing asthma or seasonal allergies, or any other issues that could make it hard to breathe deeply. It is normally can be taken in powder or capsule form and is in our shop and will shortly be coming to our online store. 

Air is the most vital energy we have: we can go for days without water, weeks without food, but only a few minutes without oxygen. If the lungs are unable to absorb enough oxygen, all sorts of health problems can appear. In many spiritual traditions, including the ancient Egyptian system which gives our Shu powder its name, breath is associated with the soul. The entire universe can be thought of as the drawing in and out of the divine breath. Since each of us is a microcosm of the universe, improving the quality of our breath is a way to live in harmony with the divine breath.

We are closely following the research into this substance and will update you once we know more.
