Tonsillitis and Homeopathic Treatment

417708736_2db8f55520_m Tonsillitis or inflammation of the tonsils is a painful condition of throat, and in its chronic form it can become a source of recurring episodes of colds. With the winter setting in, it needs a special mention.

There is a marked change in the attitude of the medical world as regards the tonsils. The old custom of “tonsil snatching”, that once meant millions of tonsil operations a year, is dying a well-earned death.

On this point, orthodox medicine has rallied down to the conservative view held by the homeopathic school. It has been an unsaid homeopathic rule to save the tonsils whenever possible. With careful application of the properly indicated remedies, I have seen homeopathy succeeding in many cases when failure seemed certain, and especially among children in whose case excising (removal) is rarely, if ever, justifiable.

According to homeopathic philosophy, such local conditions are a result of the weak immune system and almost invariably due to constitutional disturbances. The removal of tonsils does not improve these disturbances in the least. Homeopathic philosophy stresses on the necessity to study the condition of the body as a whole before one deals with tonsillitis.

Tonsils form part of the body’s defences. Their removal generally means rendering the body more susceptible for infections. Also the tonsils are a kind of indicators of the general health of the body. One might compare them to the barometer in the hall. Well, certainly one cannot improve the weather by smashing the barometer!

The treatment of enlarged tonsils with homeopathy has two stages in cases of long standing. Acute inflammation needs to be treated with a different set of medicines and its recurrence to be treated once the acute stage is over. Deep-acting medicines are required to treat the constitution and bring about lasting relief. It is true that this method takes a longer time, but it is also the best one because not only the tonsils are cured but also the patient.

It stands at the head of the list of remedies in tonsillitis. Very useful in acute stages where tonsils are bright red and swollen, and there is difficulty in swallowing fluids

Baryta carb
It is indicated in tonsillitis, with the formation of pus, when the right side of the throat is worse than the left, enlargement of the glands in the neck, under the jaw and behind the ears. It is one of the best remedies for removing the tendency to tonsillitis, particularly in children, who are sensitive to every little exposure to damp or cold weather which leads to a fresh attack of tonsillitis. It is one of the remedies to prevent the return of this condition and changes the constitutional tendency of the patient.

Iodides in various combinations are extremely useful in treating inflamed tonsils.

Constitutional treatment
It is aimed at stopping the recurrence of such attacks. Deep-acting medicines like Tuberculinum, Calcarea Phos, Psorinum and Sulphur are often employed

  4. KORTMAN says:

    I’ve been diagnosed with chronic tonsillitis. My doctor suggests laser therapy, but I’d prefer to find an alternative.
    Symptoms started over 6 months ago with sour taste in mouth and a few visible tonsil stones.
    Since then, the right tonsil has been inflamed with liquid seeping out when pressed upon.
    What can you suggest for me?
    I’ve been told it’s a side effect of my acid reflux.

    • Anna Klovsky says:

      Dear Doctor,
      I am 46 years old and have a strep throat or tonsilitis at least twice a year for almost all my life. I used to trat it with antibiotics, then last several years switched to natural treatments that worked, but still I got sick pretty often and most of the times it is my throat. I also have weak immune system – do not get fever, for example, for last several years now. This year though my trouble became bigger – along with strep=throat i developed peritonsillar abscess and 6 months after that had strep-throat again with emerging peritonsillar abscess. Just got over it. The doctor told me that the only cure he know is tonsillectomy. It is only one of the tonsills, though, I have troubles with. It is enlarged and always a source of infection. How possible to completely cure this tonsil with homeopathy? Thank you very much! Anna
