Homoeopathy for Tonsillitis:

When the internal immune system is low or weak, one tends to get infections. Tonsils work towards protecting us against the infections. Inflamed tonsils or recurrent tonsillitis is the result of low immunity and not the cause of it. The homeopathic treatment improves resistance and immunity hence reducing the recurrence of tonsil infections. Regular treatment with homeopathic medicines ensures that the patient gets lesser attacks of tonsillitis and even when they do occur, they are not as severe and are easily controlled with proper medication.
