The tonsils and adenoids are thought to assist the body in its defense against incoming bacteria and viruses by helping the body form antibodies. They act as part of the body’s immune system by filtering bacteria and virus that enter the body through the nose and mouth. When you breathe in air, it flows down a pathway from the nose through the throat down to the lungs that is called the upper respiratory tract or airway. The position of your tonsils and adenoids create a protective circle around this airway in an effort to trap harmful infections before they reach the lungs where they could pass into the blood stream.This function is thought to be important when people are very young and their immune systems are still developing. This has been shown that children who have had their tonsils and adenoids removed experience frequent upper respiratory infection, acute pharyngitis, and allergic manifestations. Some people get removal of adenoids (adenoidectomies) in order to relieve problems such as nasal drainage and sinus and ear infections, but it is found even after adenoidectomy it does not work to handle and resolve these infections. An adenoidectomy also runs the risk of failing at handling health conditions such as sleep apnea, snoring and mouth breathing. In certain cases, adenoidectomies do not work to improve and repair the nasal airway. One rare risk of having an adenoidectomy is having the voice permanently change.
Everyone have tonsils and adenoids but a few peoples or mostly children are affected by frequently tonsillitis and adenoiditis. The reasons are:
The Weak body resistant power or weak immune power that gives the way to the outward bacteria and virus to gets inside your body.
The hyper susceptibility of your body to certain types antigens, bacteria and virus so you get frequently attack by them.
Thus the curative approach of treatment is to enhance the body’s immune power or body’s resistance power so that your body can able to fight those infections. The higher susceptibility of the body to certain antigen or infection should be improved so that you will not be frequently attacked by those foreign invaders even after exposure.
A proper constitutional homeopathy treatment will be able to break this cycle and can able to check the repeated infection of tonsils and adenoids by improving your body’s own immune power or resistance power. Similarly a proper constitutional way of homeopathy treatment can also able to minimize your body’s hyper susceptibility to many foreign substances so help your tonsils and adenoids from getting frequent infection. Besides that homeopathy medicines can also effectively control the symptoms of tonsillitis and adenoids like sore throat, fever, block nose, body pain, headache, snoring, cough, ear infection within a short period.
