 Save Tonsils Use Homeopathy For Recurrent Tonsillitis

Very often we come across patients of recurrent tonsil and children many time go for Surgery ,But . Homeopathy can give you best result in tonsillitis and will sure avoid surgery , lets understand it first

Tonsils are the two lymph nodes located on each side of the back of your throat. They function as a defense mechanism. They help prevent your body from infection. When the tonsils become infected, the condition is called tonsillitis.
Tonsillitis can occur at any age and is a common childhood infection. It is most often diagnosed in children from preschool age through their midteens. Symptoms include a sore throat, swollen tonsils, and fever.
This condition is contagious and can be caused by a variety of common viruses and bacteria, such as streptococcal bacteria, which causes strep throat. Tonsillitis caused by strep throat can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
Tonsils play a very important role in the body defense against allergic diseases. They are situated at the base of the mouth at the junction of opening of pharynx and esophagus. These collections of lymphoid tissues are of three types :
  • Pharyngeal Tonsil/Adenoids.
  • Palatine Tonsils.
  • Lingual Tonsils.

At the back of your throat, two masses of tissue called tonsils act as filters, trapping germs that could otherwise enter your airways and cause infection. They also produce antibodies to fight infection. But sometimes the tonsils themselves become infected. Overwhelmed by bacteria or viruses, they swell and become inflamed, a condition known as tonsillitis.

Tonsillitis is common, especially in children. The condition can occur occasionally or recur frequently

    Homeopathic treatment:-
    Baryta Carbonica. [Bar-c]:-
    Hughes places this remedy among the most prominent ones for acute tonsillitis, saying that, in his hands, it has been of almost unfailing efficacy; he uses the 6th. It is especially of use when the trouble is in the parenchyma of the glands, and suppuration rarely follows its use. It suits comparatively mild cases, who have an attack from any exposure. it removes the predisposition to attack. Belladonna is more superficial, and Apis has oedema.
    It is very useful in cases where every cold settles in the tonsils, especially in children who have a chronic enlargement of those glands. The chief use of Baryta has been, however in chronic enlargement of the tonsils and it undoubtedly has been very often wrongly prescribed here, as it corresponds to comparatively few cases. 372 In a tendency to tonsillitis in scrofulous children with enlargement of other glands it will be found useful. Like Belladonna it seems to have an affinity for the right side. Children requiring Baryta are backward and bashful.

    Baryta iodide is preferred by Goodno, and Tooker mentions Fucus vesiculosus in chronic cases.
    Calcarea phosphorica. [Calc-p]:-
    In chronic enlargement of the tonsils in strumous children this remedy stands well in typical Calcarea cases. The tonsils are flabby, pale, there is a chronic follicular inflammation and  It efficacy in adenoid hypertrophy is well known and attested.
    Calcarea iodata. [Calc-i]
    Enlargement of the tonsils similar to Baryta. They are hard, red and nodular.
    Bromine. [Brom]

    Lycopodium. [Lyc]
    Chronic enlargement of the tonsils, which are covered with small ulcers.
    Ferrum phosphoricum. [Ferr-p]
    Chronic enlarged hyperaemic tonsils; smooth swelling.
    Belladonna. [Bell]
    This remedy is the chief one at the commencement, it the case has passed the stage where Aconite or Ferrum phosphoricum would be indicated. There is redness and swelling, but the deeper the redness and the more the swelling, the less is Belladonna indicated. At the commencement of an attack it exceeds Apis in value, as Apis only involves the mucous surface. The neck is swollen and stiff externally, ulcers form rapidly and the right side is worse. In the acute paroxysms of the chronic from Belladonna is very useful.

    Gelsemium, painful spot deep in tonsil, hurting out of proportion on swallowing, red, inflamed throat, pain streaking to ear, rapid progress. The 2x will often abort, when in the chilly stage.
    Amygdala Persica has dark injection of the fauces, sharp pains, and difficult swallowing.
    Especially in the follicular form, with pain at the root of the tongue or extending to the ears when swallowing. The parts are dark blue; the tonsils are large and blue, and there is intense dryness, smarting and burning and in the throat.
    Ignatia Raue says that Ignatia is almost specific in follicular tonsillitis. Small superficial .yellowish white ulcers; plug in throat, worse when not swallowing.
    One of the most useful remedies at the commencement of an attack, especially of catarrhal tonsillitis. The characteristics are violent burning, headache, throat hot, chill and aching in back and limbs; abscesses form quickly. In the 1x frequently repeated it will often abort.
    Hepar sulphur.
    Where there are lancinating pains, splinter-like and much throbbing with rigors showing that abscess is on the point of forming and it is desired to hasten it Hepar will be well indicated. Parts extremely sensitive to touch. Pain shoot into ears.
    Silicea. When the abscess has broken and refuses to heal, especially in rachitic children. Fistulous cases.
    This remedy is rarely of service at the onset, but later in a more advanced stage than that calling of Hepar, when pus has formed; great swelling; whole fauces deep red; the tonsils darker than any other part; ulcers form; saliva tenacious; breath foul; pains less than Belladonna, but the general health is worse. Stinging pains and difficult breathing from the swelling. Pseudo membraneous deposit on tonsils and pharynx.
    Apis mellifica. [Apis]
    Oedema is the watchword of this remedy. Useful in the simple form, not in the parenchymatous form, the throat is swollen both inside and outside. The superficial tissues alone are involved, not the parenchyma, which calls for Belladonna. Numerous points of beginning follicular secretion are present.
    Lachesis. [Lach]
    Dark angry looking parts. Swelling is very great and there is much tenderness extremely. Left tonsil with tendency to go to right, pains shoot to ear on attempting to swallow, aggravation from hot drinks. Peri-tonsillar abscess.
