Infections are perhaps the most common of all human disorders today and abscesses come in many different forms and can appear throughout many different areas of the body. Basically, an abscess is formed when pus gathers in the tissue of an organ or any confined space of the body. You can experience an abscess both internally and externally and virtually anywhere on your body.

If you have experienced an abscess in the past or are currently dealing with this disorder you may already be aware of the symptoms such as swelling, hot and red and perhaps even tender around the area of the abscess. Although many people take the experience of an abscess lightly, you can experience more serious symptoms such as weight loss, fatigue, fever, loss of appetite and in extreme cases perhaps even blood infections. With symptoms such as this it becomes important to understand what abscesses are and how to treat them effectively.

First, if you find that your abscess becomes visible very quickly, even over night this will be classified as an acute abscess. If you have had an abscess for several weeks this is a chronic abscess. Chronic abscesses have been found to be more resistant to treatment and therefore must be treated as soon as possible. On the other hand you will find that acute abscesses are more accepting to treatment and can be generally cleared up within a few days.

When you experience an abscess your body is trying to clear out any impurities from your body. This can be due to a poor diet, exposure to pollutants or chemicals, etc. There are many natural treatments, which can be utilized when it comes to abscesses, whether they are acute or chronic and by using them on a routine basis you may find the results to be more successful than prescription treatment. Zinc is a very important supplement in the aid of healing abscesses of any kind. By taking a total of 80 mg a day, divided throughout the day you will experience a powerful immune system stimulant. This is the perfect supplement to help fight infections of many different types.

Garlic acts as a natural antibiotic and should definitely be considered for those looking to treat their abscess naturally. By taking 2-3 capsules, 3 times a day you are not only stimulating your immune system but also helping the detoxification process your body is trying to complete. As always I recommend the brand Kyolic by Wakunaga of America, which is a powerful and odorless organic garlic supplement. Also, vitamins A, B and C can be taken through supplements or diet and each aid in the repair of your tissues, increase of nutrients and protects your cells and tissues from future bacteria invasions.

Tea tree oil is a powerful antiseptic that can be applied externally to destroy infectious organisms without disturbing healthy cells. Combine a mixture of 1 part tea tree oil to 4 parts water and apply to the infected area three times per day until healed. For dental abscesses use a mouthwash containing Echinacea tea in warm water. This process can be repeated every two hours.

If you are experiencing an abscess I recommend speaking to a well qualified naturopathic doctor to help you decide on the perfect balance between prescribed antibiotics and the natural supplements and solutions listed above.
