How to Use Natural Medicine for Abscesses
Press the juice from one small onion and five large garlic cloves. Apply a small amount of the garlic and onion juice mixture to the affected area three or four times a day to help bring the infection to the surface, shortening the life span of an abscess. Onion and garlic are both natural medicines that kill germs and bacteria, helping to relieve the causes of boils.
Make a natural medicine poultice to help heal abscesses before they become septic. Mix one teaspoon of milk cream, a half teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and a pinch of turmeric powder. Apply the mixture to a small cloth and cover the abscess, leaving for at least 30 minutes and applying two or three times a day.
Apply a cumin seed paste to the abscess between applications of the poultice. Cumin is the perfect natural medicine for abscesses as it contains high levels of thymol, a natural antiseptic that will help relieve and prevent the spread of boils. Grind one tablespoon of cumin seeds with a mortar and pestle and apply the paste to the affected area two or three times a day.
Cleanse your body by eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and eliminating coffee, fat, sugar, alcohol and tobacco. While abscesses are most commonly caused by a bacterial infection, toxins in the bloodstream can reduce the immune system response and increase the ability for a boil to grow and spread. Therefore, it is important that you maintain a healthy, toxic-free diet.
