5 best Homeopathic medicines for Tonsillitis

5 best Homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis

What are Tonsils

Tonsils are round shaped glands in the back part of the throat. They defend against any offending organisms entering the body through the throat. These organisms may be viruses or bacteria. Tonsils are part of the body’s defence system or the immunity.

What is the function of Tonsils

They serve an important part in the body’s defence system. Their purpose is to prevent the body from falling prey to any sort of infection. They act as gatekeepers and stop any bacteria or virus from entering the body’s respiratory system  or the digestive system which are more important internal systems.

What is Tonsillitis

At times, while performing this defence function, the tonsils may themselves get overwhelmed. In that case, they swell and start to pain. This condition is known as tonsillitis or the inflammation of tonsils.

Tonsillitis Symptoms

The main symptoms of tonsillitis are as follows-

  • There is redness and swelling of the tonsils.
  • There is pain on swallowing any thing, whether solids or liquids. Even swallowing saliva may cause pain. At times, the pain extends into the ears.
  • Fever may also be present along with the symptoms of pain and swelling.
  • Children are likely to get affected much more than adults. This is because the immunity of children is less.
  • Every time an infectious agent invades, the tonsils get inflamed and the attendant symptoms of pain, swelling and fever occur.

Treating tonsillitis

The common practice in the allopathic system of medicine is to treat acute infection with antibiotics and later remove the tonsils completely. This is completely unwarranted. While in acute cases, the infection may be viral and may have nothing to do with bacteria. In such cases, giving antibiotics is of no use. Rather it can be counterproductive as it lowers the immunity of the body and causes bacteria to become resistant.

Why surgery for tonsillitis is harmful

In chronic cases, surgical removal of tonsils is often resorted to. Here it is important to understand that the removal of tonsils amounts to removing the watchman. Tonsils have been provided by nature to perform a defensive function. In the absence of tonsils, the body remains unprotected and the infection easily travels into the inner organs of the body. Infection travelling into lungs is much more serious as compared to infection remaining in the tonsils. Under these circumstances, it is better to cure the underlying problem rather than removing the tonsils.

Homeopathic treatment for Tonsillitis or Homeopathy for tonsillitis

Homeopathic medicines are so effective in treating tonsillitis that one never needs to remove tonsils surgically. Homeopathic medicines are perfectly capable if dealing with both the acute and chronic forms of tonsillitis. In acute cases, the attendant symptoms of pain, fever and chilliness are also easily cured with the right homeopathic medicine.

Homeopathy strengthens the immune system and saves tonsils

When it comes to curing chronic tonsillitis, Homeopathy believes in strengthening the immune system. Once the immunity is strengthened, it allows the body to deal with the infections in an efficient manner and without getting overwhelmed. The same tonsils perform their function in a better manner and don’t swell or cause pain. I have had the occasion of treating hundreds of cases of tonsillitis and surgery was avoided in every case.

5 best Homeopathic medicines for Tonsillitis

On the basis of my experience of treating and curing hundreds of cases of tonsillitis, I am giving some medicines that have been found to be commonly indicated. These medicines are by no means exhaustive. This means that this is not the end of the list of the medicines that are used for tonsillitis. It just means that these medicines are more commonly used.

The 5 best homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis are-

  • Arsenic Album- best medicine for tonsillitis with restlessness and thirst

  • Belladonna – best medicine for tonsillitis with redness

  • Hepar Sulph – best homeopathic remedy for tonsils with pus formation

  • Merc Sol- best treatment for tonsils with increased sweating

  • Baryta Carb – best homeopathic medicine for tonsillitis due to exposure to cold

Selecting the right medicine for each patient is an art and requires great study of the homeopathic materia medica as well as proper case taking of the patient. Once the symptoms of the patient match with the medicines, there is no stopping the medicine and Homeopathy shows its magic. I have also given brief indications of these medicines on which basis one can select the right medicine for the patient.

1. Arsenic Album-The best Homeopathic medicine for tonsillitis with restlesness and increased thirst

When there is increased thirst and restlessness present along with enlarged tonsils, Arsenic album is the best homeopathic medicine for tonsillitis. The tonsils get inflamed due to exposure to cold or after taking cold drinks or cold food. Hot drinks or hot food relieves the pain, even if temporarily. Fever may be present along with tonsillitis.

2. Belladonna-One of the best Homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis with great redness

When there is intense redness of the throat with heat and burning, Belladonna is one of the best homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis. The tonsils become red as if looking angry. Tonsils swell and enlarge. Swallowing is difficult and it is even more difficult to swallow liquids. The face becomes hot, red and flushed. The mouth and throat are dry but there is no desire to drink water. High grade fever may be present along with tonsillitis.

3. Hepar Sulphur- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis with suppuration

When there is formation of pus in the tonsils, Hepar Sulph is one of the best homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis. There is intense pain and sensitivity. Slightest cold air or water can cause the problem. While swallowing, there is pain in the throat as if a splinter is there. The pain may extend to the ears while swallowing. Chilliness may also be present with other symptoms of tonsillitis.

4. Merc Sol- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis with increased perspiration

When there is profuse perspiration along with other symptoms, Merc Sol is one of the best homeopathic medicines for tonsillitis. There is blush red swelling in the throat. A constant desire to swallow is present. Chilliness may also be present. Every change of weather aggravates the problem. Pain is also increased at night. There may be increased salivation in the mouth along with other symptoms of tonsillitis.

5. Baryta Carb- One of the best Homeopathic remedies for tonsillitis that recurs on every exposure to cold

When the child gets a bout of tonsillitis on every exposure to cold, Baryta Carb is one of the best homeopathic remedies for tonsillitis. The child is very susceptible to cold, whether it is cold air or water. Pain is worse on empty swallowing. Tonsils may even suppurate.
