Tonsillitis Home Remedies

Tonsils are those two little bumps at the back of your throat. They are part of the lymph system and may help fend off respiratory infections. When they swell up for long periods of time-yet you don't feel any better-you probably have tonsillitis.

The chief cause of tonsillitis is a toxic condition of the system, which is brought to a head by a sudden lowering of vitality, resulting from exposure and sudden chill. The tonsils enlarge and get inflamed when the toxins cannot be got rid of through the normal channels of elimination such as the bowels, kidneys, and skin. A throat affliction of this kind is also associated with and is the result of chronic constipation, when toxins are reabsorbed into the bloodstream

Signs and symptoms of tonsillitis

  • Pain in the throat (sometimes severe) that may last more than 48 hours and be associated with difficulty in swallowing. The pain may spread to the ears.
  • The throat is reddened, the tonsils are swollen and may be coated or have white spots on them.
  • Possibly a high temperature.
  • Swollen lymph glands under the jaw and in the neck.
  • Headache.
  • Loss of voice or changes in the voice.

Natural home remedies

  • Bake a medium-sized banana in its skin for 30 minutes at 350° F. Peel and mash the juicy banana, adding 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin, cold-pressed olive oil. Spread the mush on a clean white cloth and apply it to the neck. Leave it on for a half-hour in the morning and a half-hour in the evening.
  • Haldi/Turmeric is an antibiotic which plays an important part in treating tonsillitis. One teaspoon turmeric powder mixed in one cup of lukewarm cow's milk helps to alleviate the tonsillitis problem. It will show great results, if had every night.
  • Gargling two teaspoons of onion juice mixed with lukewarm is used to gargle which helps in curing the tonsillitis problem.
  • Juices of carrot, beet, and cucumber, taken individually or in combination, are especially beneficial. The formula proportion recommended, when used in combination is 300 ml of carrot juice, 100 ml of beet juice, and 100 ml of cucumber juice
  • Juice garlic cloves so that you have 1 tablespoon of fresh juice. Add the juice and 2 ounces of dried sage to 1 quart of water in a glass or enamel pot. Cover the pot and bring the mixture to a boil.As soon as it starts to boil, turn off the heat and let it stand until it's lukewarm. Strain the solution.

Dose: Drink 1/2 cup of this sage-garlic tea every two hours. Gargle 1/2 cup every hour until the condition is better.

NOTE: The holistic health professionals we talked to believe that tonsils should not be removed unless it's absolutely necessary. They function as armed guards, destroying harmful bacteria that enter through the mouth. Asian medicine practitioners believe that when tonsils are unable to fulfill this function, the body's immune system needs to be strengthened-but the tonsils should, not be removed.
