TonsilsRahul often suffered from sore throat, burning pain in throat with difficulty while eating for days together. This not only affected his weight but he did not remain his usual chirpy, mischievous self. Rahul’s mother had to find a way out of her son’s recurrent agony.

When Rahul’s mother visited their doctor, the condition was diagnosed as tonsillitis.

So what is tonsillitis?

Tonsils – the body’s guardians:

Tonsils are the lumps of tissue (called lymph nodes) which are located one on either side of the back of our mouth. Lymph nodes are soft tissues which help filter the bacteria, viruses and other germs. Thus, these tonsils are a part of our body’s defence system – the immune system. They do not allow the bacteria to enter further in our body. These tonsils also stimulate our immune system to produce antibodies. These antibodies further help in our body’s fight against infections.


Tonsillitis – the swelling of the tonsils:

Whenever the body is exposed to any external virulent agent through our nose or mouth, our tonsils fight back. Sometimes, in this fight to contain the infection, the tonsils themselves swell. When you have swollen tonsils, you are said to be suffering from tonsillitis. Tonsillitis is one of the most common conditions found in children especially up to the age of 12.

Tonsillitis usually settles in four to six days and the tonsils go back to their normal size after the infection gets over. However in some kids, the tonsils may remain enlarged if they have frequent or chronic infections.

Tonsillitis causes symptoms

If you are suffering from swollen tonsils, you may be suffering from more than one of the below symptoms:

  • Swollen tonsils
  • Pain in the throat especially while swallowing. The pain may radiate to the ears.
  • Redness in the throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes of the neck
  • Foul smell from the mouth
  • Snoring

Homoeopathy for Swollen Tonsils:

Homeopathy offers excellent treatment and prevents surgical removal of tonsils. With regular homoeopathic treatment for tonsillitis, the recurrence and intensity of the symptoms are reduced. Homeopathy is a better, simpler and safer method of medication. Even long term use of homeopathic medicines for swollen tonsils does not cause any side effects and does not create any dependency on medicines.
