Homeopathic Treatment for Pharyngitis

Pharyngitis is the inflammation of the pharynx. It is one of the most common causes for a sore throat. Pharyngitis is caused by infections that may be viral, bacterial or fungal in nature. Among them, a viral infection is the leading cause of pharyngitis. There are non-infectious causes of pharyngitis as well. These include chemical irritants, allergies, acid reflux and irritation from tobacco smoke. Pharyngitis may be acute or chronic. Pharyngitis has an excellent scope of treatment in the homeopathic system of medicine. Pharyngitis of both acute as well as of chronic origin is dealt with very efficiently with homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic treatment for pharyngitis is decided based on the symptoms in each case.

Homeopathic medicines first help in relieving the symptoms of pharyngitis. Then, they proceed to eradicate the constant tendency of pharyngitis. Some high-grade homeopathic medicines for pharyngitis are Belladonna, Merc Sol, Lycopodium, Merc Iod Flavus, Lachesis, Merc Iod Ruber, Kali Bichrome, Hydrastis, and Wyethia.

Symptoms of Pharyngitis

The symptoms of pharyngitis include soreness, scratching or pain in the throat, painful swallowing, post nasal secretions, and cough. Accompanying symptoms include fatigue, body ache, fever and swollen lymph nodes in the throat.

      I have been suffering from the same. Finally I went to CMC Vellore and there I was diagnosed with vitamin B12 deficiency. They prescribed me Vitamin B12 tablets 500mcg and I was told to consume more red meat. And exercise for atleast 45 minutes so that bady can convert and absorb Vitamin B12 from the red meat meal. It’s been 4 years to have pharyngitis. Sometimes I feel some infections in my throat but now it is very rare. Taxim-o was the antibiotic I was prescribed by some local doctors but in CMC they told me not to take it because slowly antibiotics does not work effectively if you takes it every time you suffer.
      Note : I’m not a doctor so I just share my own experience. In your case my be this will not work. Wish you a happy and healthy life.
