Ammi visnaga (khella) has been used since ancient times in Egypt and the Mediterranean region as a diuretic and antispasmodic agent in the treatment of a variety of disorders including kidney stones. In Morocco, a decoction of the flowers and/or seeds is used as a gargle to treat gingivitis and periodontal abscesses. It is also taken orally to treat diabetes, heart palpitations, prostate congestion and kidney and bladder pain. Fumigations using the flowers and/or seeds are used to relieve headache and dizziness. Modern research has confirmed the efficacy of much of this traditional use.
