Tonsillitis – Homeopathic Treatment

 

What is a Tonsil? What do they do ?

The tonsils are part of the lymphatic system, which helps to fight infections. They are situated at the base of the mouth at the junction of the opening of the pharynx and esophagus. There are three sets of tonsils which are as follows:

• Pharyngeal Tonsil / Adenoids • Palatine Tonsils • Lingual Tonsils

The Palatine tonsils are at the back of the throat, one on either side and you can see them peeking at you when you open your mouth wide and look in the mirror.

These tonsils serves to fight infection by acting like a guard against infective organisms from being invading the body or being localized and cause inflammation in tonsils so it is called Tonsillitis.

What are the symptoms of Tonsillitis?  • Sore throat • Child will complain of difficulty in swallowing saliva, liquids or solids • Recurrent attacks of cold, stuffy nose, sneezing, and coughs • Swollen lympnodes (usually cervical lympnodes), with recurrent severe fevers. • There are other conditions that mimic tonsillitis symptoms like peritonsillar abscess, tonsilloliths, etc hence it is essential to consult your doctor if any of the above mentioned symptoms is present or persists.

How is it diagnosed? On examining the throat it can found that the tonsils are swollen red with spots or sores. Based on the appearance of the tonsils the homeopath can make a homeopathic diagnosis and determine what type and family of medicine will be suitable for the patient.
