Herpes and Neem
Research indicates that Neem oil is a powerful tool to fight viral infections, including the herpes virus.
Tests in Germany show that neem extracts are toxic to the herpes virus and can quickly heal cold sores (Schmutterer, 1992). There has been a scientific study at Johns Hopkins University in 1997 where researchers tested the effect of Neem against the herpes simplex virus-2, and found it provided significant protection.
Scientists haven't been able to exactly figure out how it works, but neem seems to make it difficult for viruses to reproduce. This means the impact of any viral infection will be a lot less.
How to Treat?
Neem oil may be applied externally on any areas of the body during an outbreak or just prior, when stress is high and we begin to get that 'feeling' that often occurs just before an outbreak.
Neem boosts the immune system and that also helps to fight off the virus. It definitely works.
