Pigeon fever vitamin treatment

I have been dissolving pf abscesses with the NRC safe high level dosage of vitamin A for chronic usage, and alfalfa hay. My page on face book is Pigeon Fever. I have documented cases and research. It is my theory these horses are vitamin A deficient, thus letting in the bacteria. I am not a vet, but have found a Texas vet that agrees. Many vets have diagnosed, and watched the process work. I have many pictures.

Herbs that successfully rid my horse of pigeon fever

Early June my horse scraped herself on a mesquite bush. Two weeks later she had a 3ft by 1ft by 6in abscess hanging off the bottom of her abdomen. This was encased by, what I call, alligator skin. While waiting for the time to slice,dice and give antibiotics; I decided to give her a selection of herbs. I chose herbs that would be anti fungal, antibacterial, and diuretic in nature. They were Nettle Leaf, Cleaver, Dandelion Leaf, Rose Hips, with a few drops of Colloidal Silver, extra vitamin C, a little Garlic, Pau D' Archo , Flax Seed, and lots of fresh water available. On the fourth day the abscess was half gone. One the fifth day it was completely gone. She had successfully "pee-ed it out". I kept her on the herbs for a month. It has been three months since the start of this horrible adventure, with no re laps. Why is there no research on how effective herbs are on horses and illnesses. I find it very wrong that Pigeon Fever is not reported, and most states don't care. I am thankful that I chose the herbs and they worked. I am thankful that I did not have to work through the slice, dice and drain routine.

Please post the dosage of each herb, route, duration (you stated she's been on them for three months but how many times a day or week) and does it go in water, feed or straight up!?
