  1. This is a very useful article which tries to educate people about chikenpox and the popular beliefs. I agree with the suggestion regarding diet. But I do not agree with the suggestions of remedial measures of plant products except the neem leaves. All else is not useful, and it is not even advisable to use any remedy. It is not contagious and one need not worry about not coming in contact with one who has got chicken pox.
    It is a problem of unhygienic life practices. With a natural and hygienic life style, the disease will go away. Exposure of the body to mild sunlight every day will help in faster healing. Fasting for a day or two is also very useful. Taking only tender coconut water for 3 days or so will help immensely.
