Tonsillitis occurs commonly in children due to viral or bacterial infections. Immunity plays an important role in tonsillitis.Children with low immunity are easily susceptible to this infection. Tonsillitis treatment in homeopathy is effective for pediatric (infants, children and adolescents) patients suffering from this condition as the medicines are made from natural ingredients and free from side-effects. This treatment is very effective for both acute and chronic tonsillitis.
Homeopathy not only treats tonsillitis but heals the allergic sensitivity of the child’s immune system. Tonsillitis treatment in homeopathy heals instead of just easing the symptoms of the disease. It takes into consideration the minutest details of the suffering person.
Chronic inflammation and enlargement of the glands can be completely reversed through homeopathy. Homeopathy takes the inside-out approach to treat tonsillitis, beginning with the analysis of all the triggers. Tonsillitis treatment in homeopathy is usually selected after taking into accountthe mode of onset and symptoms of the disease like throat pain, thirst, sweat, shivering, mental restlessness, changes in appetite, etc. Homeopathy removes these vulnerabilities caused bythe infection so that the child’shealth is restored. Even in severe cases of recurrent tonsillitis where a tonsillectomy (surgical removal of the tonsil) is advised, homeopathic medicines can play a significant role and surgical intervention can be avoided. Homeopathy does not just focus on treating the symptoms, but also eliminates the risk of recurrence.
Homeopathic treatments can be given to people of all age groups. Tonsillitis can also be treated with painkillers, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic medicines. But these conventional treatments can lead to unwanted side-effects like an upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, vaginal itching and yeast infections. As tonsillitis can be viral or bacterial,these germs are infectious and airborne.Hence practicing good hygiene is vital to prevent tonsillitis.
Homeopathic tonsillitis medication is prescribed after a thorough evaluation of the case history, which aids in understanding the root causes and characteristic symptoms. Homeopathy treatment can be divided into 2 types according to the type of tonsillitis and the approach ofthe treatment:
- Acute tonsillitis treatment: In acute tonsillitis, symptoms have ahigher intensity and require treatment that provides relief within a short period of time. A homeopath considers all the acute symptoms while selecting a homeopathic remedy for tonsillitis.
- Chronic tonsillitis treatment: In chronic tonsillitis, the acute symptoms are not prominent but thetonsils enlarge with fewer symptoms. In this condition, tonsillitis treatment is required for a longer period by applying the constitutional homeopathic approach. The constitutional treatment is purely based on the totality of the child’s symptoms. Therefore, medicines are given systematically for a longer time. This helps to heal tonsillitis for years together and provides long-term relief. Best of all, since a child’s immune system gets strengthened by using a homeopathic remedy for tonsillitis, there is less chance of recurrence not only of tonsillitis but of other infections as well.
According to a study published by The National Center for Biotechnology Information, homeopathic treatment exhibitsa significant reduction in inflammationas compared to the placebo group.
The earlier the tonsillitis treatment is started, the fasterand more complete the recovery is. A well-selected remedy quickly supports the body mechanism and clears the complaints in a shorter time period.
