The Fundamentals

Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the lympathic tissue of the pharnyx, especially the palatine or faucial tonsils. It can be caused by Group A Beta-Hemolytic streptoccoci, hemophilia influenza type B, or mycoplasma, as well as fungi and parasitic infections. The onset of tonsillitis is sudden, usually accompanied by chills. Headache, back ache, and aches in the arms and/or legs may be present, as well as pain, sometimes severe, in the tonsils, especially when swallowing. Often, the tonsils appear swollen and bright red with yellow pockets of pus. Tonsillitis may occur sporadically or in epidemic form. Acute tonsillitis is generally self-limited, but it may be accompanied by sinusitis, otitis media, mastoiditis, or peritonsillar abscess.

The onset of tonsillitis may be caused by a variety of organisms, including streptococcal bacteria. Inflammation of the lymph and related glands, such as the adenoids, shows that the body is attempting to fight off an infection. With help from a variety of herbs, it can be a battle won. Echinacea is extremely helpful in almost all infections, as it is useful in enhancing the body's immunity. As a mild antibiotic, it is excellent at defending the body against staph and other infections. Another herb that is effective against tonsillitis is Elderberry, which medical research has proven to have antiviral properties.
Dandelion Root and Garlic are also touted as desirable in the fight against tonsillitis. Both of these herbs have been shown to increase the body's defense mechanisms against viruses and bacteria.
