Ayurvedic treatment & Chronic Ulcers and Scabies
Researchers at the Medical and Cancer Research and Treatment Centre, Nagercoil, India have used Ayurvedic medical herbs Azadirachta indica ('Neem') and Curcuma longa ('Turmeric') to help heal chronic ulcers and scabies. The 'Neem' and 'Turmeric' was used as a paste for the treatment of scabies in 814 people. In 97% of cases cure was obtained within 3 to 15 days of treatment. These results indicate that 'Neem' and 'Turmeric' offer a very cheap, easily available, effective and acceptable mode of treatment for the villagers in the developing countries. No toxic or adverse reactions were noticed, so far. However, further research is needed.
