any common strains of bacteria remain unaffected by Neem, however, two pathogenic varieties that are suppressed by Neem are of particular interest.

Staphylococcus aureus is the strain commonly associated with food poisoning, boils and abscesses.

Due to Neem's antibacterial properties, it is effective in against the bacteria that causes acne. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce inflammation of the skin. Neem also helps repair skin damage caused by acne.(1)

Acne and Neem

Neem kills the bacteria that cause acne and reduces the inflammation that makes it so noticeable. Neem-based creams have even improved the appearance of people who have reddened skin from acne that ended years before.

To prevent and heal acne, first wash with neem soap or shampoo, then use a neem face pack to soothe and tighten the skin. Finally, apply a neem-based cream to
moisturize and condition the skin.

Remember to:

1. Wash the skin with warm water
    and a natural soap regularly.

2. Avoid touching the sore areas with
    unwashed hands.

3. Use Neem cream three times a day     after washing skin or as often as     required.

Diet plays an important part in healing any dis-ease. Eating fresh rather than processed food is vital in healing acne. Avoiding fatty foods, saturated in grease and sugary foods is very important.

Many people take Neem Leaf capsules which enhance overall health, improves immune system response and supports healthy bowel function.

Manuka Honey is also a great immune system booster and also a healthy alternative to artificial sugars.

Cider Vinegar also helps to maintain good health and helps to prevent the formation of two fatty peroxides responsible for aging and ill health


What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the oil-secreting glands in the skin are clogged and become inflamed or infected. These glands occur mainly on the face, back and chest, so these areas are the main sites for acne. Acne is associated with increased grease production, therefore people with acne often notice and complain of the greasiness of their skin.

What causes acne?

Grease glands:

These are controlled by the sex hormones and this is why acne starts at puberty. However acne is seldom due to an excess of these hormones but is usually due to an excessive response of the grease glands to normal hormone levels.

Skin bacteria:

The skin of the face and upper trunk, with or without acne, contains bacteria. These bacteria get into the ducts of the grease glands where they make chemicals that eventually penetrate the deeper parts of the skin. This does not mean acne is infectious. It is due to the action of normal skin bacteria on the abnormal quantity and quality of grease produced by acne sufferers.

Cautions: No side-effects or health hazards have been noted at normal doses of Neem. As usual, pregnant or nursing women should consult their doctor.

Suggestion: Research for yourself. With access to the WWW these days information is easily found whether it is a pharmaceutical drug or a natural remedy you want to learn about. Read as much as you can about the treatments you are prescribed or natural therapy you are thinking of trying. It's your body and so it should be your choice and you should be fully informed..
