Tonsillitis

Inflammation and infection of the tonsils most often occurs in children or younger adults, it is used to be the fashion to remove the tonsils but unless they become chronically badly infected and act as a focus for other infections, it is now considered better to keep them. They act as an early warning sign of lowered vitality, and if this first line of defence is lost, then more deep-seated conditions can occur in later life.

Home remedies for Tonsillitis

Tonsillitis Treatment using Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Essential oils are not for internal use, unless under qualified treatment, and are rather unpleasant for local treatment. In tonsillitis they are best used as supportive treatment, using steam inhalations of Benzoin, Eucalyptus or Thyme to ease inflammation and fight general infection.

Herbalism - Herbal Remedies for Tonsillitis

All the herbs mentioned under Sore Throats for gargling are excellent here too, especially Myrrh (Commiphora molmol). Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) and Sage (Salvia officinalis). For repeated bouts of tonsillitis take garlic daily, either capsules or fresh. Another essential herb to use for chronic tonsillitis is Cone Flower (Echinacea angustifolia or E. purpurea); this boosts the immune system and may be taken in tablets or else as a tincture (see page 14), 20 drop twice daily.

Homeopathy and Tonsillitis Treatment

Remedies applicable to tonsillitis include:

ACONITE: for sudden onset of inflammation, with hot, red and burning tonsils and thirst for cold drinks.

HEPAR SULPH: for pain on swallowing, as if something is stuck in the throat, tonsils swollen and discharging yellow pus.

LYCOPODIUM: for chronic swelling of the tonsils, which look as if they are pitted with small white discharging ulcers; cold drinks make the sensation worse.

Naturopathy - Tonsillitis Natural home cures

The tonsils actions, in trapping and removing infective bacteria that would otherwise cause deeper problems, means that they are more easily infected themselves. This can produce an infection of the adenoids too, with nasal congestion.

Where these symptoms occur, it is helpful to cut out dairy projects for a while. In any case, take plenty of fluids, especially fruit juices. Freshly-squeezed lemon juice, with a little honey, is a local antiseptic. Repeated attacks of tonsillitis are often a sign of lowered health in general, and may need professional treatment.
