Home Remedies for Scabies

Neem – Blessing for ones suffering from Scabies

Even the tiniest of things on earth can prove to be the most pestering…just for example..even if a particle of dust enters our eye…it can render us frantic and irritable for several minutes…likewise..certain microscopic mites if come in contact with our skin..can trouble us to the hilt!

Scabies is is one such trouble caused by tiny mites….manifested on skin and causes small itchy bumps and blisters Sarcoptes scabiei….These tiny pests get into the epidermis of skin and lay eggs there…
The burrows  the small holes these mites make) sometimes appear as short…wavy….reddish…or darkened lines on the skin’s surface…especially around the wrists and between the fingers…Anyone contracting it can develop a bumpy red rash….

hmm now the queation arises as to how people get scabies…?
You kniow this disease is highly contagious…and is mainly transmitted by prolonged skin-to-skin contact or through sexual contact with someone else who is infected with it….crowded and dingy places are conducive in spreading the disease by great measures  like maybe -
within a household
nursing homes
healthcare centers
college dorms

So basically an anticipatory caution before the disease actually develops can be a wise-step..

Why Neem to cure it???
Neem has already acted as a shield for many diseases..and cases with parasites and even fungal and viral problems….The claim is of neem’s ability to cure the apparently the incurable..Here giving you some solid reasons..
1. Neem is certified organic..
2. It is a natural contraceptive…

When using Neem on their body to treat scabies we are almost sorted because Neem will STOP the reproduction cycles of mites….in other words there is no multiplication of the pests…

How does Neem do the magic?
The magical constituent of Neem is azadirachtin…..and azadirachtin seems to be an ‘ecdysone blocker’….It blocks/stops the insect’s production and release of these vital hormones….They will then stop to develop….thus breaking their life cycle….

hmm…so now we know the cure…okay now have a look at these…

Branches Of Goodness – Neem’s Top 5

I am sure you must have heard and read chunks about neem and even the oilo that is obtained from it. They are highly antiseptic in nature and top the list of naturally therapeutic and edicinal oils. That is just one reason why neem is so popular all over the world.

  1.  Psoriasis: In clinical studies Neem extracts and oil were found to be as effective as coal tar and cortisone in treating psoriasis. However there were none of the usual side effects accompanying the use of Neem as there was with Coal tar and cortisone. When applied to the skin, Neem extracts and oil removed the redness and itching while improving the condition of the skin for the duration of the treatment.
  2.  Diabetes: Whether drinking a simple cup of tea out of the leaves or taking extracts of the Neem leaf, Neem significantly and consistently reduced insulin requirements for nonkeytonic, insulin fast, and insulin sensitive forms of Diabetes. Because of the numerous and successful clinical studies with Neem on Diabetes, the Indian equivalent of the FDA has approved the manufacture and sale of Neem tablets, by Pharmaceutical companies, for the treatment of Diabetes.
  3. Dental disease: In the old days, the people in India did not use neem toothpaste. They used neem toothbrushes instead. Chewing on a neem twig has for many centuries been the commonly preferred way to prevent gum disease and maintain healthy teeth.In a study to determine the most effective method for reducing plaque formation and the level of bacteria on tooth surfaces researchers compared antibiotics to a number of plant materials with known antibacterial properties, including neem. They found that microorganisms found in inflamed gums and resistant to penicillin (44%) and tetracycline (30%) but were not resistant to antibacterial plant extracts like neem. And unlike antibiotics, antibacterial plant extracts produced no allergy in the gingiva that could inhibit their effectiveness.
  4. Cancer: For centuries in India and Southeast Asia Ayurvedic practitioners and herbalists have successfully used Neem to reduce tumors. Clinical research performed in Europe and India using the polysaccharides and limonoids found in Neem bark, leaves, and seeds demonstrated some remarkable effects against cancers. These compounds not only reduced tumors and cancers but were also effective against lymphocytic leukemia. An amazing reduction in tumor size was reported when Neem extracts were injected around the tumors.
  5.  Herpes: Recent tests in Germany show that Neem is toxic to herpes simplex viruses. Neem exhibits antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and astringent properties. The leaf and oil of this tree has been used for centuries in Southern Asia for maintaining beautiful and healthy skin.

Neem – The Village Pharmacy

In ancient rural India..owing to the backwardness of it..people discovered this wondrous tree called ‘Neem’…whose benefits had no end..Let me just frame the history more formally..
IT has a grand history indeed…It was back then in 1922 that archeologists from Britain stumbled across the 5000-year-old Indus Valley archaeological site in Northwestern India….There was something really unusual and uncanny that happened…as they dug deeper the explorations should have been more primitive and simple yet instead they were rather advanced to evryone’s surprise!

In the last layers of it they discovered the cities Harappa & Mohenjodaro….and the most tantalizing factor being the cities were advanced enough to compete with the cities today…I mean as far as the construction…the engineering and everything was concerned….Just imagine…right from sanitation, drainage…and even the way the houses were constructed were spectacular..hard to believe that they belonged to such an ancient period..
And they found magic burried in deep…the most magical herb Azadirachta Indica better known as Neem….And thats how we coined the word ‘Ayurveda’…the most ancient yet modern (oxymoron it is I know) medical system…and its chief tool being….nothing else but Neem

When it comes down to the medicinal properties of neem..they’re even mentioned in the most ancient of books like the Veda’s….So explicitly mentioned in the Veda’s are the benefits of Neem that nothing else holds a position higher than the amazing tree…thats how we know that the population of India…centuries ago…fearlessly used Neem for any and every ill of theirs…and hence named it ‘the village pharmacy’.

You know something that’ll draw you more towards neem is that it’s actually the chief ingredient of all blood purifiers….and even in medicines of Diabetic people… It cures..
The removal of external and internal parasites
Including-

  • Malaria
  • Fevers
  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatism
  • As an insect repellent

Though yet it is best at saving our teeth from decaying…. Dont know how many researches and studies now are staunch crusaders of the plant..
Understand it even more deeply…explore these reference links..

Peep In The Past – Neem

There has been an inseparable connection between neem and ayurveda. The highly antiseptic and therapeutic qualities of both of these are the reasons that there is so much demand of both of these in the world market.

 Various parts of the neem tree have been used as traditional Ayurvedic medicine in India. Neem oil and the bark and leaf extracts have been therapeutically used as folk medicine to control leprosy, intestinal helminthiasis, respiratory disorders, constipation and also as a general health promoter. Its use for the treatment of rheumatism, chronic syphilitic sores and indolent ulcer has also been evident. Neem oil finds use to control various skin infections. Bark, leaf, root, flower and fruit together cure blood morbidity, biliary afflictions, itching, skin ulcers, burning sensations and pthysis.

 Neem has been highly successfully against harmful fungi, parasites, and viruses. Although it can destroy these, it does not kill off beneficial intestinal flora nor produce adverse side effects.

Neem is toxic to several fungi that attack humans, including the causes of athlete’s foot and ringworm and candida, which cause yeast infections and thrush. In fact, neem extracts are some of the most powerful Antifungal plant extracts found in the Indian pharmacopia that are used for these conditions.

 The compounds gedunin and nimbidol, found in the tree’s leaves, control the fungi listed above. Basing their studies on the ancient tradition of using neem to purify the air surrounding sick people, two Indian researchers found that neem smoke was successful in suppressing fungal growth and germination.

One of neem’s stronger advantages is its effect upon the skin in general. It has been most helpful in treating a variety of skin problems and diseases including psoriasis, eczema and other persistent conditions.

According to a report from the National Research Council’s Ad Hoc Panel of the Board on Science and Technology for International Development, neem preparation from the leaves or oils can be used as general antiseptics.

 Because neem contains antibacterial properties, it is highly effective in treating epidermal conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. It is also used for treating -

  • septic sores

  • infected burns

  • scrofula

  • indolent ulcers

  • ringworm

Stubborn warts can be cleared up when a high-quality neem product is used.Unlike synthetic chemicals that often produce side effects such as rashes, allergic reactions, or redness, neem doesn’t seem to create any of these results.

Saving Grace Of Medicine – Neem Seed Oil

For centuries millions of people have benefited from using various parts of the neem tree. Its recognized traditional uses are being confirmed by modern research findings. During the last 20 years more than 2000 research papers have been published on neem in journals, books and proceedings of international congresses.

Neem tree in totality has been a village dispensary and a qualified plant by itself. Every part of this plant finds use as medicine for itching, skin disease, leprosy, blood disorders, worms, diabetes, piles, dysentery, jaundice, vomiting, wounds, eye disease, paraplegia, female genital diseases and all kinds of fevers.

More than 150 compounds have been so far isolated from neem. Out of these seed accord for 101 including 43 from the malodorous fraction, the leaves 37; and flowers, bark and root furnish the rest. Following are some of the diseases that this oil deals with, very effectively.

  • Herpes: Recent tests in Germany show that Neem is toxic to herpes simplex viruses. Neem exhibits antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and astringent properties. The leaf and oil of this tree has been used for centuries in Southern Asia for maintaining beautiful and healthy skin.
  • Kidney stone: Taking neem tea is not only good to prevent kidney stone, but also for the treatment against this disease, helping to dissolve the stones.
  • Dermatology: Neem’s antibacterial and antiallergic properties make it effective in tackling skin problems such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. In Ayurveda, epidermal problems were believed to be caused by raised sugar levels in the body and Neem’s bitter taste was said to balance out excess sugar. Besides, Neem cream is an excellent anti-wrinkles.
  • Ulcers. The traditional use of neem seed oil against ulcers is well supported by in vivo laboratory evidence, both for the protection of gastric and duodenal mucosa against stress-induced or chemically induced lesions, and for the enhancement of the healing process in chronic gastric lesions induced by acetic acid (Pillai & Santhakumari 1984). Blockade of histamine receptors is suggested as a possible mechanism for this effect.

More Than 70 % Of Ayurvedic Remedies Contain Neem Oil

Ayurveda and Neem – Encounters & Friendship
There is a parity drawn between the magic of ayurveda and neem as a herbal plant…Since times immemorial the two have joined hands to help the human race…

Traditionally Neem was ( actually it still is being used) used in Ayurveda for a number of conditions…it is this chief ingredient in almost every blood purification formula used in Ayurveda and it is even present  in most Diabetic formulas as well….

It treats acute problems of  arthritis…rheumatism….conducive in the removal of external and internal parasites….including malaria and fevers and as an insect repellent…..

And….one of the most famous uses for Neem is to fight against tooth decay & gum disease….Its twigs and leaves have been used as toothbrushes for thousands of years by millions of people in India hence promoting oral hygiene…. And finally today…Neem got its true recognition…hundreds of scientific clinical studies confirm the smartness and tact of India’s people and her Ancient Ayurvedic medical texts….

Active ingredients of it are in the neem seed oil…and of course the active ingredients are also found in lesser amounts in the bark and the leaves…. When a serious condition was treated a concentrated paste of the leaves or strong decoction of the leaves or the bark was used…for blood purification (in cases of any bacterial… fungal… or viral infections)….malaria…fever…arthriti… rheumatism….and lots of other diseases….It was also used as a shield against different pests both as an insect repellent and insecticide that is both safe and harmless to humans….

And traditionally Neem oil was applied externally to the hair…scalp…and skin for parasites…..It was also massaged into arthritic joints…after being slightly warmed…to relieve pain and inflammation…

So all and all that I am trying to convey is that…Neem has been the king ingredient in almost every ayurvedic medicine…it still continues to be…and will continue to be…because of myriad beneficial and magical qualities…Ayurveda developed with neem…Neem thus has been an integral part of the field since long…
