Neem oil is probably the best product currently available for treating psoriasis. It moisturizes and protects the skin while it helps heal the lesions, scaling and irritation. Experiments and reports from patients with psoriasis have shown taking neem leaf orally combined with topical treatment with neem extracts and neem seed oil appear to be at least as effective as coal tar and cortisone in treating psoriasis.
In a case study a patient with severe psoriasis was given neem extract (nimbidin) three times a day and the skin treated with nimbidin mixed in coconut oil. The treatments lasted less than three months, stopped the itching, redness and continued to improve the condition of the skin for the duration of treatment. The final result of the treatments was the complete disappearance of the signs of psoriasis. They produced no noticeable side effects. Anecdotal reports indicate that improvements are faster when the areas treated with neem are also exposed to sunlight.
The usual treatment for psoriasis involves either coal tar or cortisone. Coal tar products are messy and smell, and cortisone can thin the skin after repeated use. Neem has neither drawback. Topical applications of neem are easy and inexpensive, and since it is usually oil or cream based, neem helps to lubricate the skin. There are no unpleasant smells or stains on clothing, and its antibacterial and anti-viral compounds help prevent infections. It also can be used for extended periods of time without side effects. Neem can also take the place of oral medications and injections that may have strong side effects or cause liver damage or birth defects. It is perhaps the best and safest alternative for treating psoriasis.
Neem Oil and Eczema:
The broad range of beneficial effects neem has on skin makes it one of the better treatments for eczema (dermatitis). Though neem oil is preferred because of the concentration of active compounds, topical applications of even the weaker leaf extracts have cured acute eczema ( Neem Leaf Powder ).
Neem Oil in Organic Agriculture:
Neem's "soft" pesticide is
improving the lives of impoverished farmers throughout the tropical
range of the neem tree. Substituting crude neem extracts for
expensive chemical controls saves both money and lives. In
developing countries, it is estimated 500,000 people are poisoned
and up to 20,000 die annually from using agricultural chemicals. To
protect their crops, most of the earnings of farmers in developing
countries are spent on these chemicals, producing a cycle that leads
not to more food and a better life, but to continued poverty, ill
health and environmental degradation.
