Nontoxic Head Lice Treatment

Nontoxic Head Lice Treatment


“Nontoxic Head Lice Treatment” The next game we’re going to play
is called “Better than Nothing?” I’ll throw something up, and you’ll try to decide if what I
have pictured is even worth trying. First up? Head lice are nasty; really nasty. But so is covering our
kids with insecticides, like permethrin, the standard
treatment for head lice. So it’s no wonder there are all sorts
of alternative treatments out there. But do they work? One was finally put to the test: Paramide Plus coconut
oil emulsion shampoo. Is it better than nothing, even though it may potentially
delay more effective treatments? Better than nothing? Or, do you think, “If I have blood-sucking lice on my
child’s head, I’m going for the big guns?” Researchers went into
12 elementary schools, and after a week of
insecticide treatments, 14% of the kids were cured. After a week of the coconut-
derived shampoo, though, 61% were cured. Worked four times better,
and no pesticide exposure.
