Your child’s tonsils and adenoids are there to protect his or her body against infection. Whenever possible, it’s always a good idea to keep these wonderful natural defense mechanisms in place. Tonsils produce white blood cells that literally devour invading organisms. Adenoids support the tonsils as defense mechanisms. When tonsils are doing their job, they are likely to swell, redden, and cause pain while bringing germ-eating white corpuscles to the area. The swelling is a healthy response. When swelling will not go away, this is not due to a fault of the tonsils but more likely to the fact the some kind of infection remains. In any case, frequent or constant swelling of the tonsils can be a concern to pediatricians and parents alike. In saying so, it is imperative to understand that there is help available and a natural treatment for Tonsillitis.
The tonsils are a pair of small almond-shaped lymph structures on both sides of the throat. Tonsillitis occurs when viruses, bacteria or allergens invade the body through your child’s nose and mouth.
Frequent bouts of tonsillitis suggest that your child’s immune system is deficient, and so the tonsils are working overtime, naturally enlarging in the process as would many organs in your body if they were overworked. Removing them is not always the answer. It is very rare that I see infections and related problems go away as a result of removing the tonsils.
Instead, consider homeopathic medicine as a natural treatment for tonsillitis. The correct homeopathic remedies work to support the immune system, including the tonsils, when they get overtaxed and are unable to finish their job. When homeopathy returns your child to health, the tonsils will naturally assume their normal size again and be ready and available for the next invader that comes along.
If the tonsils are removed, your child is now missing an important part of his immune system, which serves to protect him against every illness. Homeopathy can offer a natural alternative to a tonsillectomy.
Homeopathic medicine offers a natural treatment for tonsillitis by addressing your child’s health challenge at the root of the problem. It is considered to be safe and free from side effects. Homeopathy is taken only while needed, and is discontinued when your child’s problems go away. This is because his body has achieved health by using its own healing mechanisms.
Children who are successfully treated with homeopathy for tonsillitis will improve in other areas as well. Homeopathic medicine does not simply treat tonsils or any particular part of the body but it treats your Whole Child. The correct homeopathic remedies will strengthen your child and you will see improvements in all systems of the body, and also with emotional issues such as nightmares, temper tantrums etc.
Best of all, since your child’s immune system has been strengthened there is less chance of recurrence not only of tonsillitis but of other infections as well.
Your child’s immune system will be supported by the homeopathic remedy and the tonsils will be “kicked into gear.” In my experience, the tonsils will enlarge again as they work to get rid of any remaining infection. After this, they will generally regain normal size. Many times I have seen they will enlarge again in order to clean up any infection that remains. Within a few months, what I normally see is that the tonsils will have cleaned up the infection and have regained normal size permanently.
