Hebal Treatment

Herb Directions for Use Comments

Chamomile Prepare as tea (see Pan Three, Using Herbs, Tea Preparation). Drink 3-4 cups daily. If face is swollen from infection, prepare poultice (see Pan Three, Using Herbs, Application Preparation) and apply to cheek outside the affected area one or more times daily until abscess is drained. Promotes drainage of pus.

Echinacea Prepare as a mouthwash (see Part Three, Using Herbs, Mouth wash Preparation). Rinse with a warm solution every 2 hours Promotes healing.


  • As diabetics are prone to the spread of infections, they should notify their dentist and physician at the first sign of an abscess.
  • Avoid alcohol and sugar, but drink large amounts of water, grape juice, and grapefruit juice, and maintain a low-fat diet.
  • Decrease iron intake. As reported in the American Journal of Nutrition in 1982, excessive iron supplementation can release toxins that hasten bacterial growth.
