(NaturalNews) Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, generally due to a viral or bacterial infection. It is a common childhood illness. Generally, doctors will immediately prescribe antibiotics to treat the condition or recommend that the tonsils get removed to cure recurrent bouts of tonsillitis. Natural remedies provide relief and can build up the immune system to fight off future attacks.

Homeopathic Remedies for Tonsillitis

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole and homeopathic medicines are selected only after a full examination of the patient, taking into account his or her medical history and predisposition to tonsillitis in the case of chronic conditions.

The homeopathic cures listed below are for information purposes only. None of these medicines should be taken without professional advice.

A homeopath may prescribe a formulation comprising of belladonna, Calc. Phos, Hepar sulph, Kali bichromat and Kali muriaticum for cases of acute or chronic tonsillitis.

Lycopodium may be administered for the sore throat and/or chronic enlargement of the tonsils that often come with tonsillitis.

Phytolacca may be administered when the throat feels rough, constricted and hot, with red, swollen tonsils and pain extending to the ears.

Kali muriaticum is useful for acute or chronic tonsillitis, where there is a lot of swelling.

Guaiacum is used at the onset of an attack when the patient may experience a severe headache, chills and aches in the back and limbs.

Hepar sulphur is used by homeopaths for pain and throbbing headaches or for when an abscess may be forming.

Herbal Remedies for Tonsillitis

Echinacea, garlic, myrrh, sage and wild indigo boost the immune system. Limeflowers, chamomile, elderflowers and yarrow are said to reduce fever.

Painful tonsils may be soothed with comfrey, marshmallow and mullein.

To clear catarrh and mucous, an herbalist may recommend raspberry leaves, elderflowers or agrimony.

Gargling with a mixture of lavender and chamomile may reduce fever, headaches and pain.

A mild tea made from elderflowers, peppermint and yarrow leaves can be taken daily until a bout of tonsillitis clears.

Garlic is useful in treating any kind of throat infection, including tonsillitis. An onion and garlic soup are excellent foods to eat during a bout of tonsillitis. Include spices such as ginger, horseradish and mustard seed.

Blackberry root and persimmon are rich in tannins and have traditionally been used as a folk remedy for tonsillitis.

Echinacea enhances immunity and combined with goldenseal, it makes a potent antiseptic, antibiotic and immune stimulant.

Black nightshade is also said to be a healing herb for tonsillitis.

In additional to homeopathic and herbal remedies, try gargling with a saline solution of half a teaspoon of salt to one cup of tepid water to remove mucous and reduce swelling. Suck zinc lozenges as zinc helps the immune system. Bee propolis has anti-viral properties, boosts the immune system and can help in recovering from tonsillitis.
