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..

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…

Neem leaves, bark and oil are all high in antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds in plants that reverse and prevent cell damage. Free radicals come from natural sources, such as foods and oxygen, and from unnatural sources, such as chemicals in the air and the water that we use and in the foods that we eat.

Oil derived from neem leaves, bark and seeds has a wide range of antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, according to Agrawal. Neem oil is particularly effective for mouth and gum infections. Swish with a mild solution of neem oil and water for optimal oral health. Use neem oil topically on wounds to prevent infection during healing. And try taking a neem extract supplement or drinking neem tea to prevent bacterial infections.

The antiviral properties of neem are found in the seed oil, neem leaves and leaf oil. Neem can also help prevent dengue fever, a viral infection that is transported by mosquitoes in some tropical regions. If you have access to a neem tree, nibbling 10 to 20 of the bitter leaves in the morning can help prevent viral infections. Neem extracts are also available as supplements and neem oil is widely available in health food stores.

Neem oil has spermicidal properties. Using a cotton pad soaked in neem oil for 15 minutes before intercourse may prevent pregnancy. There is speculation that for women, eating fresh neem leaves daily may prevent contraception and for men, consuming fresh neem leaves for a month may cause reversible infertility. However, further research is required, and neem should not be relied upon for birth control or disease prevention.

  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 Seed Oil for Skin And Oral Health

Neem seed essential oil is one oil that has been used extensively by our ancestors all their lives. Be it for oral health, the health and care of skin and the getting rid of skin infections were all dealt by neem seed oil.

It’s true that using Neem oil and other topical acne treatments can make a big difference for some patients; but for more severe acne symptoms, or for certain skin types, advanced cosmetic skin treatments might be the better option. Laser-based skin treatments like IPL Photofacial, Blue Light Therapy, and even Fraxel Laser Resurfacing can be effective when it comes to removing deep-set acne scars and blemishes.

Neem oil will help clean and treat excessive oil production and clogged pores, but it can’t help erase deeper cystic acne, or remove old acne scars. That’s why, for the most enhanced skin rejuvenation results, consumers might want to try combining Neem oil with laser treatments, or with Microdermabrasion and/or Chemical Peels to treat acne symptoms in a more complete manner.

If you’re interested in professional laser skin care procedures, or dermabrasion and peel treatments for your acne, we recommend visiting with a trusted dermatologist or cosmetic provider in your area. They can give you an in-depth skin assessment and make informed recommendations concerning which acne treatments will yield the best results for you.

A search of Pubmed reveals over 400 different studies on Neem oil most of which deal with its antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects. The data indicates that Neem does live up to its reputation as a wonder drug, at least in many respects.

There are studies showing that it gets rid of camel ticks, it’s a spermicide, stops hamsters from getting cheek cancer, it’s good for sheeps’ digestive systems, kills head lice, helps against some types of diabetes, repels mosquitoes, and stops mange. It’s also effective against -

  • Plaque
  • Cavities,

can interrupt the breeding cycle of the diamondback moth, and guards against some forms of gastic cancer. To name a few.

However, in all these studies (and I reviewed all 448 of them!) I couldn’t find a single reference to any testing on acne or eczema. Now, that doesn’t mean necessarily mean that Neem DOESN’T work. It is a plausible theory since it does have antibacterial properties. But there maybe other effects to consider. For example, it could kill the bacteria that cause acne (P. acnes) but it could also contribute to acne by clogging pores. Without some kind of test data it’s all speculation and hearsay.
