Natural Birth Control: Neem Oil for men & women   9 y  
Vaginal creams and suppositories made with neem oil are quickly becoming the birth control method of choice in India. (Paranjapo and Paranjapo, 1993); (Garg, et al, 1993); (Riar, et al, 1993). They are non-irritating and easy to use while almost 100 percent effective. It's important to note, however, that even toxic spermicides are not 100 percent effective. When tested against human sperm neem extract (sodium nimbidinate) at 1000 mg was able to kill all sperm in just 5 minutes and required only 30 minutes at a 250 mg level. (Sharma, 1959); (Khare, 1984); (Lal, et al, 1987); (Riar, et al, 1988); (Sinha, et al, 1984). They have the added benefit of preventing vaginal and sexually transmitted diseases (Upadhyay, et al, 1990); (Garg, et al, undated); (Lal, et al, 1985); (Sinha, et al, 1984).
Neem has a proven ability to prevent pregnancy (Juneja, 1990); (Sharma, 1959a/b). Neem oil has also been shown to work well both before and after sex while some purified extracts only worked before sex as a preventative. (Riar et al, 1991) Neem oil appears to be the most effective form of neem for birth control, particularly hexane extracted neem oil. After a single injection of a minute amount of neem oil in the uterine horns, a strong cell-mediated immune response reaction produced a long term (up to 12 months) and reversible block in fertility. (Upadhyay, 1994);(Garg et al, 1994) There ...   read more

Chikungunya & Neem Oil   9 y  
5. Natural oils such as neem, citronelle, eucalyptus, or garlic have mosquito repelling properties and can be used in various ways, either applied directly on the body in the form of cream, ointment or spray, or heated (e.g. as in electric 'mats' or in aromatherapy) or burnt (e.g. in candle form, or directly in a fire) to create mosquito-repelling va-pours in a room. If used in candle form, several candles must be placed within a few feet of where people are sitting. It is important to know that while neem and citronelle oils are effective in repelling mosquitoes, the application of unmixed oils on direct unprotected skin should be done with caution. There are several methods of extracting oil from plants; one method uses solvents. Sometimes, traces of these solvents may still be found in the oil. Some people may develop allergic reactions to the oil or to the solvent used in the extraction process. On no account should these oils be taken orally, unless they are specified for that pu
Mosquitoes and chikungunya. Posted on Friday, May 26 @ 06:08:57 GMT by MauRIsUN Health The mosquito species that transmits the Chikungunya virus is the Aedes albopictus, commonly known as the Asian tiger mosquito or forest mosquito. It is generally more aggressive than other mosquito species, and often outcompetes them. The adult mosquito is small (about 5 mm) and has a rapid bite that allows it to escape most attempts by people to swat it.

During this period, the patients are advised to take more and more cow milk. According to the healers, the intake of milk helps in absorption of Neem oil in body organs. Externally, Neem oil is applied on hairs. This use is popular among natives. During visits to rural and forest areas, while interaction with the natives you can identify the specific smell of Neem oil coming from the hairs.

I tired it for two more days but the smell was so bad that I gave up. A week went by and I happened to see myself in the mirror from a weird angle and thought there was something fluffy stuck in my hair. I brushed my hands through my hair and it just felt different. I looked closer and it was hard to see that part of my head but there is a whole flock of baby hair growing in! I will report on it more ...   read more
