Curing Tonsillitis at home using home remedies
Good things like home remedies take time but in return, you take lifetime benefits
Tonsilitis is one of the painful illness, it happens when the tonsils (i.e. the 2 lymph nodes located on each side of the back of our throat) gets infected. It's few symptoms are — high fever, headaches, difficulty in swallowing. Apart from adults and old people, usually, kids become the victims of this disease. There is no permanent cure to it, even if you go through surgery, the chances of coming it is highly possible. One can only control this disease to an extent by following precautions.
My younger brother is suffering from this illness since childhood. I have seen him going through painful days and nights. There were days where he couldn’t even eat, so he had to be dependent on liquid foods and diet. How this illness caught him — Well, since childhood like every kid, he too loved eating sweets and candies and specially cold-drinks. And to our surprise, he had even eaten frozen ice by scratching the ice crystals at the corner in the freezer. And slowly, his tonsils got infected, and later on, we found out that he has been diagnosed with Tonsillitis.
My mother had consulted many child specialist doctors, all the medicines given by them were of high dosage. After taking the medicines, he got some relief, but that relief was temporary. Medication alone wasn’t enough to cure this problem. An aunty suggested some home remedies, and that was a great help to him. Now, he is 20 years old, he has recovered a lot from this illness, the occurrence of getting sick due to Tonsilitis has decreased to once or twice a year.
Precautions & Remedies that will definitely help you if some is suffering from Tonsillitis
~ Avoid drinking too many cold drinks — Cold drinks can really impact your tonsils because the amount of sugar in cold drinks are high, and sugar isn’t good for people suffering from Tonsillitis.
~ Avoid sweets, candies, oily foods, junk foods — These foods will only worsen the situation, so try to avoid these foods as much as possible. Replace your diet with a healthy nutrition-rich diet which helps in strengthening your immunity and metabolism.
~ Gargle with warm water — Before going to bed, fill a glass with hot water add a pinch of salt, and gargle with it. Drink hot water before going to bed. It will help you in the deformation of mucus around your tonsils.
~ Drink hot turmeric milk — A fancier name to this drink is turmeric latte. Turmeric has so many natural benefits that one could ever imagine. From face mask to immunity drink, this miracle spice has done wonders in every field. Add a half — teaspoon of turmeric into hot milk and drink it every night after having your meal.
~ Rub a warm towel around the front neck — This is one of the most helpful remedies that will give you relief. So, for this all you have to do is -
- Put a clean pan on stove/induction and turn on the flame
- Once, the pan gets hot, turn off the flame
- Take a towel, and fold it into a bun shape
- Hold that folded towel and now, gently rub it over the hot pan for few seconds
- Once, the front surface of the towel has become warm, now rub it on the front neck (below the chin area, where the tonsils are)
- Repeat this every day for a week, until the condition gets better
These tips have helped my brother in curing the tonsilitis and I thought of sharing this with everyone. Because everyone doesn’t hail from a financially stronger background and hence, they cannot afford the frequent medication fees and operations charges. My mom always says that medicine will help in getting better but a person shouldn’t become dependent on it every time. Make your core, gut, and metabolism stronger, that your immunity alone can fight with the outside disease.
