Tonsillitis, adenoids, nasal popypi, frequent colds and
Dr. Wadia S.R. Homeopathy Children Diseases
These children do not come early in life to us but are
extensively treated with modern medicines, injections, Auto
vaccines, and finally when the are told surgery is the solution
then consult an homeopath.
First, the treatment should be on constitutional lines.
A detailed history of the patient and their parents will
give an indication for prescribing. Short-acting remedies
should be given for acute condition. Bell., Hepar., Sulph,,
Ars., Alb., Merc, If. or Merc, C. later Barita Carb. is found to
be the remedy of choice.
According to Dr. Burnett and Dr. Borlant these children
having tonsillitis and adenoids are physically, mentally and
socially backward. Have frequent colds, enlarged tonsils,
breathe through the mouth with marked salivation
and have enlarged cervical glands. Aurum met. is another
remedy worth using. Here too, the child is mentally
backward and does not grow in height and weight
according to age. Along with frequent tonsillitis there are
frequent attacks of colds and offensive discharge from
nose, tonsillar crypts and ears. They have hypertrophied
adenoid and may be having undescended testicles as a
concomitant symptom. The remedy that will finally cure the
repeated attacks of tonsillitis and cervical adenitis is
Bacillinum or Tub. as per the suggestions by Dr. Burnett
This remedy will also cure adenoids, nasal and polypii,
freequent colds and chronic sinusitis. This remedy still
works better when there is a family history of parents
or grand-parents having respiratory diseases.
