The Fundamentals
Ringworm is catch-all phrase for a number of fungal infections of the skin, the popular layman's term for determatomycosis (from "dermato," related to skin, and "mycosis," fungal infection). Ringworm of the scalp is called "tinea capitis"; of the body, "tinea corporis", of the beard, "tinea barbae", of the nails, "tinea unguium", and of the feet, "athlete's foot". Ringworm is characterized by a red-ringed patch on the skin which is accompanied by itching, pain, and scaling. Orthodox medicine has an array of antifungals that attempt, some successfully, to eliminate the problem. Griseofulvin is the most common from an internal point of view; tolnaftate, the most common (and OTC) topical.

Ringworm on

ingworm of the body is an infection caused by fungi from the genus Trichophyton. Ringworm effects anyone, but children are most susceptible to infection due to close contact with other children. The primary method of transmission of ringworm is through contact with an infected individual. It can also be transmitted by animal, especially cats, or through contact with soil. Diabetics are often infected with ringworm because they are generally more susceptible to fungal infections. Another group commonly affected by ringworm are athletes, as they experience repeated friction of the skin by clothing and protective gear. The term "Athlete's Foot" is due to this friction and the moist, warm, dark situation of sweaty feet and damp shoes. Exposure to darkness, moisture, and warmth is the ideal growing situation for Tricophyton. Ringworm is routinely and successfully treated with Neem tree oil. Read "Skin Disorders" on page three of our Neem Common Use Table. Additional pages that will assist you in better understanding neem include: Neem: Tree of 1,000 Uses, and The Secret of Neem. Ringworm has also been reported to have been successfully treated with H3O solution, but our findings are still preliminary. Additionally, there are many herbs that are very useful in ridding the body of this infection. Garlic is especially effective in eliminating ringworm, as scientific studies have shown it to be a powerful antifungal antiseptic. A garlic "footbath" is soothing relief for Athlete's Foot. Ginger is also extremely helpful against ringworm as it has a total of 23 antifungal compounds. Licorice, which has 25 fungicidal compounds, and Chamomile are just two other herbs that have been proven effective in the fight against ringworm and other fungicidal infections. In addition, Echinacea, with its immune-stimulating properties and efficacy against yeast infections in particular, Goldenseal, containing berberine, a particularly powerful antifungal and antibacterial compound, and Turmeric, known to inhibit a variety of common problem fungi, are all very useful in combatting ringworm. Electrically you can use our Candida Zapper or DC Electrifier to kill the fungus with electricity.
