Benefits of Neem for Allergies

Benefits of Neem for Allergies

Neem inhibits allergic reactions when applied to the skin Neem compounds inhibit the stimulus produced by histamine and may be helpful in skin rashes and bronchial allergy. Application of a neem-based cream or lotion will stop the itching and inflammation of rashes.Neem tea may be taken internally for allergies to pollen, molds, etc. (David, 1978)

Allergies come in two basic forms: pollen allergies and food allergies. Each is caused by an immune over-reaction that targets basically harmless material causing inflammation. Inflammation of the mucous membranes cause swelling and leakage of plasma. Histamine release causes itching. There is also a theory that allergies can cause inflammations or abnormal tissue reactions elsewhere in the body. The brain is one example and various problems such as ADD are thought to be caused by food allergies in at least 66% of the cases. Many other problems seem to have an allergic component, also.

Pollen allergies often cause asthma, along with the usual runny nose, itchy eyes and so on. Both conditions indicate a body that needs detoxification and attention to correcting immune dysfunction.

Food allergies are caused when the body reacts to the antigens on food, or when it is allowed to gain access to the bloodstream and cause circulating complexes after combining with antibodies.

Food allergies are reported to be the root of many illnesses.

Allergies Symptoms:

* Itchy, red swollen eyes

* Stuffy or runny nose

* Frequent sneezing or cough

* Blisters on the skin

* Dry skin

MEDICAL EMERGENCY If you have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. Neem is a very powerful substance. It has been widely used in India for several thousand years, without any side effects. Also, in traditional Ayurvedic medicine neem is often prescribed together with other herbs that neutralize neem's toxicity such as turmeric. Neem is as a powerful contraceptive. Pregnant women or women who wish to conceive should be very careful and seek medical advice before using neem in great quantities. Neem has achieved high status in the US. It is often associated with claims that may prove to be false. Seek medical advice if you have a medical condition. Children and Neem While neem supplements have very little evidence of extreme side effects documented, the University of Michigan Health System does suggest that neem oils should be kept away from children. According to the website, there is a documented report that suggests a few infants developed Reyes-Syndrome symptoms shortly after consuming neem oil in supplement form. These infants ingested more than 5ml of the oil, which eventually lead to the death of the patients. As of 2010, however, no deaths in the adult population have been reported. Furthermore, the University website states that until more information is gathered on neem as a supplement, pregnant women should also stay away from the herb due to health risks to the fetus. Stomach Effects Ironically, while most supplement users take neem supplements for the treatment of stomach disorders, the University of Michigan Health System also states that some stomach symptoms may worsen in some users. In a few reported cases, patients who consumed neem oils were found to have an increased risk of diarrhea and stomach discomfort. As a result of these risks, the University recommends that patients stay within a dosage range of 10 to 20ml in order to limit the onset of adverse effects. Other Risks While more research needs to be conducted in order to determine the consistency in onset of documented side effects to neem, does offer helpful suggestions in monitoring your intake of neem. According to the website, persons suffering from medical conditions that result in fatigue or physical "wasting" should not consume neem due to the risk of stomach complications. In addition, the website also recommends that patients with liver or kidney disease also steer clear of the supplement. As of 2010, no documented cases of drug interaction exist regarding neem and other medications
