Hi, can this flower be used to cure psoriasis?
16 Aug 2019
Dear Sunder Balan, You can use Babchi ( Psoralea ) oil for Psoriasis. Always dilute it with some carrier oil like Coconut or Sesame oil.
USE WITH CAUTION! It is recommended that you proceed with caution. Dilute ten times with any carrier oil and use as a tester on the forearm. Expose the forearm to the sun for 15 minutes. If nothing happens, add more, drop by drop and test at each stage. When the skin turns red after 15 minutes of exposure to the sun, that dilution is for you. It will work. It will cure.
Patience is the key to success. It should take about 60 days to show its effects.
You can consult your own health care provider for the use. Read the link to get more information on the use and effects of oil. https://herbpathy.com/Uses-and-Benefits-of-Babchi-Oil-Cid10606

Can the flower part be used for treating diabetes ? ?
02 Sep 2019
Dear Buno, Cestrum Nocturnum is known to treat Diabetes, but the dosage and procedure for the same are not proven yet. There are two herbal remedies which are beneficial for Diabetes.
Buy the tincture of the following two remedies from a Homeopathy shop.
1. Tinospora Cordifolia.
2. Gymnea Sylvestre
Tinospora Cordifolia is also known as Giloy. This will remove any inflammation of the Pancreas.
Take 5 drops of Tinospora Cordifolia in the morning in half glass of water. Gymnea Sylvestre is famous as Gurmar. It will set your Pancreas right and invigorates the metabolism to digest the sugar.
Also, take 5 drops of Gymnea Sylvestre before every major meal. Monitor your Blood Sugar every day and as it reduces, reduces the dosage of Gymnea Sylvestre to 3 drops.
Continue taking Tinospora Cordifolia for one month at least. Consult your doctor before taking any kind of medication.
