To treat a pulled muscle or swollen glands, grate a seed of the avocado pear, mix it with clay and vinegar to make a paste, and apply. For indigestion make a tea with a little piece of avocado pear, a branch of zeb a ve (Chenopodium ambrosioides), leaves of guava (Psidium guajava) and ponm kannel (Annona squamosa). The white pear is used with nine leaves of soursop (Annona muricata) to make a tea for high blood pressure.
