Overview Tonsillitis / Adenoiditis / Pharyngitis

Are you aware of the following facts?

A poor immune response to allergens, viruses and infection may continue to exist even after surgery.

Tonsils and adenoids may be considered as the first line of defense against infection entering through the mouth and nose. So their removal may resolve immediate discomfort, but your possibility to catch colds and throat infections does not reduce !!

Saving the tonsils or adenoids and improving your immune response to future infections will guarantee a better future health.

If your immune response is boosted there would be no need for their removal !!

Homeopathic treatments based on an individual’s signs and symptoms does help in boosting immune responses, lowering recurrent infection and susceptibility to allergens, as well as preventing surgery in most cases.

What is Tonsillitis / Adenoiditis / Pharyngitis ?

Infections in the throat may lead to inflammation of one or both the tonsils - Tonsillitis.

Infections may lead to inflammation of the throat - Pharyngitis. Sensitivity to allergens can lead to chronic pharyngitis.

Adenoid - is a mass of enlarged lymphatic tissue between the back of the nose and the throat, often hindering speaking and breathing in young children.

Symptoms & Causes

The primary symptoms include sore throat, dry cough, pain on swallowing and fever. Neck glands may be enlarged and the tonsils look inflamed, red, often with pus spots.

Symptoms :

  • The main symptoms of adenoiditis are nasal blockage or stuffiness and nasal discharge. In children who develop a common cold, the adenoids become inflamed as part of the illness. If this nasal blockage or stuffiness and discharge persist it probably has progressed to adenoiditis and/or sinusitis.
  • Both, enlarged tonsils and adenoids can cause: Obstruction of breathing which may lead to snoring, nasal speech, restless sleep etc..

Below are the most common infectious agents causing tonsillitis & pharyngitis. When adenoids are infected this leads to adenoiditis.

  • Viruses
    • Adenovirus
    • Influenza
    • Epstein-Barr virus H
    • Herpes simplex virus
  • Bacteria
    • Group A ß - hemolytic streptococci (GABHS)
    • Neisseria gonorrhea
    • Haemophilus influenzae Type B
    • Mycoplasma
  • Fungal & Parasitic infections
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Allergens
  • Surgery & Antibiotics over use of Antibiotics
    • Patients usually resort to homeopathy or alternative medicine only when they are forced to undergo surgery after multiple uses of antibiotics.
    • Chronic inflammation and enlargement of the glands can be completely reversed by homeopathy if taken for proper time.
  • Surgery should be the last resort and the only time we recommend the surgery is when:
    • Homeopathic treatment for 6-8 months yields absolutely no results at all. Though less than 5 % of patients treated fall in this category, most patients respond favorably and surgery can be avoided.
    • Severe infections can lead to very high fever, tender lymph nodes and pus-like coating on tonsils which may need antibiotics during the course of the Homeopathic treatment. Antibiotics may be opted for along with homeopathy as the chances of recovery are better. We ask individuals to continue homeopathy once these symptoms are treated and one must note the difference in relapses as well as intensity and frequency of symptoms which can be significantly minimized. If repeated infections persist and high fever and abscess (quinsy) cannot be resolved, surgery may be recommended.
