Neem a tree that grows in India and Florida is a healing miracle. All parts of the tree are medicinal. The leaves and bark are anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and anti-parasite. Neem can be consumed as tea, tooth powder or applied as an body oil. This oil is cooling, moistening and stops itches from dry skin and bug bites, safe and convenient to wear outdoors and pleasant for daily use. Made with neem, karanja, sesame, olive and jojoba oils – plus essential oils of lavender, cedarwood and lemongrass – the all-natural formulation soaks in quickly for fast and long-lasting relief. It is especially good for my friends who garden or play outdoor sports. https://neemtreefarms.com/shop/anti-itch-formula/?ap_id=Letha

Something big and positive is happening in India. Women around the world are speaking their minds, demanding rights and respect. The medical profession needs to listen, especially to those who mistrust medical norms. Here is my first of my columns at Economic Times World Health. It is aimed at the medical industry as a whole. In India PM Modi’s vision is to push up Ayurveda through official channels of AYUSH not as a separate identity, to bring about a blend of allopathic and Ayurvedic care. http://health.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/industry/in-roads-to-womens-health/46461957 Despite strides made in medical testing, surgery, technology and targeted drugs, women’s health remains an important concern especially affecting lower and middle income world populations. In addition, since women and girls, for social and economic reasons, are traditional care-givers at home for sick relatives and aging parents, women’s health impacts the general population. According to the latest figures from World Health Organization, in 2011, women’s life expectancy at birth was more than 80 years in 46 countries, but only 58 years in the WHO African Region. Women in developing countries are more likely to become health-challenged and, for a variety of reasons, less likely to find adequate care. Globally, cardiovascular disease, previously thought to be a “male” problem, is now the number one killer of women regardless of the level of economic development of the country in which they live. Cardiovascular diseases account for 46% of older women’s deaths globally. Breast cancer is the leading cancer killer among women aged 20-59 years worldwide, whereas in older women 14% of deaths are caused by cancers, mainly cancers of the lung, breast, colon and stomach. Due to poor access to screening and treatment services, more than 90% of cancer deaths occur in women living in low- and middle- income countries. Poverty, poor nutrition and anemia are major factors for women’s health throughout their lifetime. The WHO reports that in 21 out of 41 countries reporting data, more than one third of girls aged 15-19 years are anemic. That impacts their vital energy, mood, immunity and ultimately their survival. Anemia, most commonly iron-deficiency anemia, increases the risk of hemorrhage and sepsis during childbirth. It causes cognitive and physical deficits in young children and reduces productivity in adults. Women and girls are most vulnerable to anemia due to insufficient iron in their diets, menstrual blood loss and periods of rapid growth. Inadequate nutrition and blood-loss affect more than physical vitality. Depression following childbirth, affects 20% of mothers in low- and lower-middle-income countries, which is even higher than previous reports from high-income countries. The Global Health Observatory data from the World Health Organization reports that every day in 2010, about 800 women died due to complications of pregnancy and child birth, including severe bleeding after childbirth, infections, hypertensive disorders, and unsafe abortions. Out of the 800, 440 deaths occurred in sub-Saharan Africa and 230 in Southern Asia, compared to five in high-income countries. The risk of a woman in a developing country dying from a pregnancy-related cause during her lifetime is about 25 times higher compared to a woman living in a developed country. Maternal mortality shows very wide gaps between rich and poor, both between countries and within them. Other largely unnoticed causes of women’s ill health at home are chemical poisons and smoke. Tobacco use and the burning of solid fuels for cooking are the primary risk factors for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – a life-threatening lung disease – in women. One third of all of the COPD Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease deaths and disease burden in women is caused by exposure to indoor smoke from cooking with open fires or inefficient stoves. Chronic respiratory conditions, mainly COPD, are the cause of about 9% of older women’s deaths–not to mention that cooking smoke also affects the atmosphere with a thick grey cloud hovering over our homes. Women may live longer than men, but they are burdened with stress, exhaustion, blood-loss, complications from sexual disease and childbirth, and exposure to select chemicals poisons. Lifestyle is also important because many health problems faced by women in older age are the result of exposure to risk factors in adolescence and adulthood, such as smoking, sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diets. Everyone agrees that early detection of illness is key to preserving health and wellness. However many girls and women avoid medical exams due to their home responsibilities, inaccessibility of medical help, financial incapacity, and timidity. The problem remains of how to get women to the clinic or medical facility for testing. In the United States the NIH National Institute of Health encourages regular medical testing, often beginning at age 40, whether or not a woman has symptoms. That may be an example of the American emphasis on squeaky clean hygiene and prevention. However facts don’t lie. From the MedicalPracticeInsider.com we learn that 1 in 3 Americans from a sample of 1,000 people questioned know someone who discovered a serious medical condition from a routine medical check-up or discovered one themselves, according to a newly released survey conducted by GfK Roper for health technology vendor Patient Fusion. Patients surveyed were consistent about going in for regular checkups, with 88 percent of patients having had a checkup in the past two years. The survey reported that patients earning at least $50,000 a year are over 40 percent more likely to use an online search to find a doctor than those in lower income brackets. Age was another factor. Patients under age 50 more often used the internet, while those over 50 relied on referrals from their other doctors. There may be other ways to get patients to have regular checkups, especially women and those who are elderly or in low income groups. Asian populations have a special advantage in their traditional medicines. There is a growing movement in India that encourages the use of Ayurveda along with allopathic testing and treatments. This has several significant benefits. Herbs and foods traditionally used for generations to overcome everyday maladies may be used to overcome drug side-effects such as nausea, dizziness, anemia, sexual dysfunction, fatigue and diarrhea to name a few. The main social advantage to a medical approach that combines allopathic practices along with familiar traditional remedies is that the remedies build trust and comfort for the patient unfamiliar with or frightened by X-rays, chemicals and radiation.

We are exposed to radiation every minute from our computers, wifi, lights, cell phones, televisions and kitchen appliances especially microwaves and refrigerators. This disrupts the electrical communication in our body necessary for our cells to work properly. Our memory is made up of such connections. Overtime harmful electromagnetic charges increase our stress, insomnia and illness. With our natural connection to earth by walking barefoot on wet grass or the beach, swimming in the ocean, working barefoot in the garden, we can absorb earth’s healing electrons and ground deadly radiation.
