What is Tonsil?
Tonsils are two lymphoid tissues (oval-shaped) that are present at the back of your throat. They are part of your immune system and protect your body from bacteria and viruses that get inhaled or ingested.
What is Tonsillitis?
Swelling or inflammation of one or both of your tonsils is known as Tonsillitis. Swelling or inflammation of tonsils happens due to infections caused by viruses (influenza virus, adenovirus, and rhinovirus) and very rarely by bacteria (Such as Group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus bacteria). Acute tonsil commonly occurs in children and may occur in teenagers and adults as well. Some may have recurrent episodes of acute tonsilitis which is known as Cronic Tonsillitis.
The common symptoms of tonsillitis are:
a. sore throat
b. pain when swallowing
d. A scratchy, muffled, or throaty voice
e. bad breath
g. Enlarged, tender glands (lymph nodes) in the neck
Few home remedies may give you relief from sore throat, throat pain, inflammation of tonsils, and may even help to treat infections.
a. Gargling and rinsing with warm saltwater
b. You can have herbal Licorice lozenges (not recommended for children). This may benefit you from discomfort, swelling in the tonsils, and sore throat
c. Warm tea with honey
d. The use of Humidifiers is very beneficial when you have infections caused by viruses.
Also, you must maintain hygiene by washing hands often, especially before you eat, and avoid sharing utensils.
How Homoeopathy Treatment is Beneficial to Treat Tonsillitis?
Homeopathy treats tonsillitis most efficiently by treating the acute symptoms of Tonsillitis and reducing the tendency towards recurrent tonsillitis. It boosts your immune system so that your body can fight infections effectively. As tonsillitis is common among children so homoeopathy treatment is very safe to treat tonsillitis without any side effects and surgical intervention. You may experience a reduction in the severity or intensity of the pain resulting from the episode of tonsillitis. There will be a reduction in taking antibiotics while you are on homoeopathy treatment. As it boosts your immunity so you may experience an overall improvement in the quality of your health. As the exact medicine for a person is selected based on the individual case analysis so no medicine should be taken without the consultation of a qualified homoeopathy doctor.
