Saving Your Child from a Tonsil Surgery with Natural Homeopathic Medicines

 Homeopathic medicines for tonsils

 

Tonsils refer to masses of lymphoid tissues lying in the back of the throat, one on either side. Tonsils have a protective role and act as the first line of defense against the bacteria and virus that get inhaled or ingested. Inflammation of tonsils, on one side or on both, is known as tonsillitis. Homeopathic medicines for tonsils treat the chronic tendency toward recurrent infections that have resulted in tonsillitis in the first place.

  2. Hi Dr. Sharma,
    What about tonsil stones and tonsil cyst. Have tried everything natural I can come up with and some over the counter. It’s been 2 years of trials and I have been to two Naturopaths. Finally went to ENT and I have been told I have stones on left side and cyst on right side. My body usually responds well and I haven’t been able to figure this one out yet. Would really appreciate your help.

    Dr. Dharma,
    My 21 year old daughter had a recent case of strep that was treated with antibiotics (2 courses). The swelling still hasn’t gone down completely. I prefer to seek natural treatment but for this we chose the antibiotic (she is away at school).
    She is one that every time she gets exposed to something, her tonsils swell and it starts in her throat. She is complaining that her tonsils remain swollen and there is a small “hole” in one of them. I’m interested in what specific homeopathics we should use and how long should they be taken. I don’t believe there is an infection and she has no fever or sore throat.
    She also seems to have some post nasal drip and gets horse when talking a lot. Occasional coughing when her throat feels scratchy.

  15. Kelly Ova says:

    Last winter I had a tonsil stone cough out after a cold, windy, rainy soccer game. I have had reoccurring tonsil stones my whole life but after that game, it became a chronic issue. My lymph nodes are swollen constantly, there’s lethargy, tonsil stones, redness in my throat, pain in my throat, and it radiates to the ears. It has blocked the Eustachian tubes as well. I have taken antibiotics which helped for a month then then the symptoms returned. My son has these same issues. It seems as though we keep passing it back and forth. We are constantly catching cold as well. Heat and cold are both bothersome. Especially changes in weather. All colds caught start in the throat/tonsils. Please help!
