Tonsillitis - Types Symptoms, Causes and Treatments

Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, many of which are known as glands.

Forms of tonsillitis :- There are two forms of tonsillitis: acute and chronic.

Acute tonsillitis all of us under the name of angina. We do not dwell on it and move on to the next form of the disease.

Chronic tonsillitis requires detailed consideration. We'll start from afar - a function of the tonsils in the body. They serve as protection against ingress of bacteria and viruses. Each of us on tonsils "lives" a huge amount of harmful microorganisms, but they can not overcome the so-called barrier that creates them palatine tonsils. And all these thanks to the development of lymphocytes, they also protect the respiratory tract.

And what if as a result of disease of the immune system will grow substantially lymphoid tissue? That's right, it will change its function exactly the opposite - it no longer protects the body, and will be a breeding ground for pathogens of various diseases. As a result, a person only a small push to get sick. The reason can be anything - from hypothermia to a nervous stress.

Symptoms of tonsillitis :- Symptoms of tonsillitis depend on what type it belongs. A sore throat - it chills, fever, headache and joint pain, weakness, and, of course, a sore throat, which increases during swallowing. Also, the lymph nodes in the corners of the lower jaw increase in size. It is important that the angina is not rash.
If acute tonsillitis causes complications, it also manifests the typical symptomatic picture. For example, there may be a general weakness, blanching of the skin (in alternation with blueness), periodic loss of consciousness and lowering body temperature. These signs point to toxic shock. If struck by the nervous system, then there are convulsions and loss of consciousness. In breach of vascular permeability indicate bleeding. When a patient complains of a feeling of lack of air, a dull chest pain and discomfort in the abdomen and lower back, it means that angina has given complication on the heart and kidneys. Finally, if, despite treatment, sore throat, all amplified, it means that the inflamed tissue is located near the tonsils.

In chronic tonsillitis, person feels scratchy and sore throat, which increases during swallowing. Throat turns red and swells slightly. The patient feels general weakness, in some cases, reduced body temperature. As can be seen, the symptomatic pattern, in this case, is not as bright as in angina, so many people for a long time did not go to the doctor, while the disease progresses and gives complication on the internal organs.

Tonsillitis treatment methods of classical medicine :- Specific methods in traditional medicine prescribed depending on what type belongs to tonsillitis. In the acute form usually quite conservative treatment, that is, restoring health glands. This method provides for comprehensive measures. This includes the washing of the tonsils, coupled with special lubrication solution, and antibiotics, and physiotherapy and phonophoresis.

If angina gives complications or becomes chronic, it is necessary to resort to surgery. There are two types of surgery: conventional tonsillectomy or tonsillotomies procedure and cold destruction of damaged tissues. All operations are performed in the shortest possible time.

Unfortunately, neither the conservative method or operating not give effective results. Antibiotics are harmful to the body and give a lot of complications like any chemicals. As for the removal of the tonsils, it is all so clear. If we are given the nature of the glands, it means that they perform their function is similar to the heart or lungs. And what will happen after the removal of the tonsils? The barrier, which protects the body from getting infections collapse. In fact, a person decreases the immune system as a whole, it will be more likely to get sick with catarrhal diseases. Yes, the tonsils will not, but the problem is not solved by this! Quite the contrary - the removal will entail new challenges ... And such a chain will never end. In your power to interrupt it by abandoning conventional medicine in favor of homeopathy.

Tonsillitis treatment methods of homeopathy :-
Mercurius Iodatus helps both in acute tonsillitis (angina), and chronic.

When a sweat transferred to the next treatment step - Bryonia discharged in 3 and 3 dilution, Belladonna 3 dilution (especially well suited in inflammation of tonsils) and ipecac in 3 and 3 dilution (if the inflammatory process involves small bronchi).
