HOMEOPATHY FOR TONSILLITIS
Tonsillitis is extremely common, particularly in children.
The tonsils are a pair of small almond-shaped mass of lymphatic tissue on either side of the throat. These structures act as a defense against infections (bacteria, viruses and allergen) that invade the body through the nose and mouth. Tonsils are part of the body’s protective lymphatic system which dispatches white blood cells that literally devour bacteria.
Tonsils produce antibodies to fight against germs and microbes for protecting the body. Sometimes, when the bacteria take the upper hand, the tonsils get infected. If the swelling and pain remain for more than few days or if they are recurrent in nature, the tonsils need to be treated but do not necessarily need to be removed. The human system loses the constant protection given by the tonsils if they are removed, thereby increasing the chances of getting more infections in other parts of the body.
Tonsillitis is simply an inflammation of the tonsils. The major causes of Tonsillitis are certain bacteria, virus, and allergens
Symptoms of Tonsillitis:
- Sore throat
- A white or yellow coating on the tonsils
- Pain or discomfort when swallowing
- A slight voice change due to swelling
- Bad breath
- Sleep disorder: Temporary cessation of breathing while sleeping may be experienced due to an obstruction in the air passage because of heavily enlarged tonsils
- Other symptoms: General fatigue, headache, body aches, loss of appetite, low energy level are among the symptoms that may be associated with tonsillitis.
Homeopathy strongly believes in enhancing the body’s own defense mechanism to maintain good health. The homeopathic approach is to encourage the immunological activities of the tonsils, and to save them for the body’s own long term protection. Frequent infections of the tonsils simply suggest that the body’s defense mechanism is low. When the tonsils are repeatedly infected, they become enlarged. Enlarged tonsils are not the causes of infections – they are the result of the poor immunological state of the body.
HOMEOPATHY FOR MIDDLE EAR INFECTIONS (OTITIS MEDIA)
Ear infection is an inflammation of the middle ear. It is the most common viral or bacterial infection in infants and children.

- Chronic otitis media with effusion
Symptoms of an ear infection
- Earache or a sensation of pressure in the ear
- Hearing loss
- Respiratory symptoms like runny nose and cough
- Yellow, white or blood tinged draining from ear
Homeopathic medicines boost the immune system and successfully prevent and treat infections. Once the immune system is stimulated your child’s health will improve and the ear infections and other problems will permanently go away. Homeopathic treatment is also very safe, effective and with no side effects. Homeopathy does not focus on treating ear infections as a separate problem but instead treats the child as a whole.
HOMEOPATHY FOR CROUP
Croup affects the vocal cords and the windpipe (trachea) in young children ages 2-4 years old. Viruses usually cause it. The parainfluenza viruses are responsible for most of croup cases.
