Did You Know Homeopathy Can Help Avoid Adenoid Surgery?

Adenoids refer to the mass of lymphatic tissue situated at the intersection of the back of the nose and throat. They are a part of the body's immune system and play a noteworthy part in battling infections in kids. Adenoids fight off the microbes and infection that enter the body through the nose. They typically occur in children of five to seven years of age and from that point, they begin to decrease. They vanish when the child gets older. This is the physiological development and relapse of the adenoids. However, permanent adenoids are an issue in view of a number of annoying symptoms they show in a child. The major among these are breathing through the mouth and wheezing because of nasal blockage.



Homeopathic medicines are a very safe option than surgery in kids with extended adenoids. It has been noted that adenoids, when surgically removed, tend to regrow. Homeopathic medicines focus on strengthening the child’s immune system. The cures are as follows:

  1. Baryta Carb: Baryta Carb is one of the top recorded homeopathic medications for swollen adenoids. It is likewise the medicine to endorse where both tonsils and adenoids are broadened.

Agraphis Nutans is the best treatment for deafness because of expanded adenoids. Homeopathic prescription Merc Sol is highly used in case of an ear infection connected with swollen adenoids.
  4. Kali Sulphuricum: Kali Sulphuricum is among one of the top recorded homeopathic solutions for adenoids that regrow after surgery. The symptoms controlling utilisation of Kali Sulphuricum are a blocked nose, mouth breathing and wheezing. Yellow coloured nasal release is also common.

You can change your life style for that. So begin with exercising everyday. Slowly increase the time duration and intensity of the exercise regime. Learn yoga as it can fine-tune the metabolism and also heal your system. Eat only healthy food. Avoid junk food and cold-drinks. Have daily fruits and vegetables. Take proper rest (sleep 6-8 hrs everyday). Finally stop worrying unnecessarily. Learn some relaxation techniques or meditation. If needed you can add Homeopathy which is safe and gentle. You can contact me later after 2 - 3 months.

What about your blood thinner medicines for stent? Those should not be discontinued. Rest of medicines are less important.

Dear lybrateuser, - The normal BP should remain below 120/80 mm of Hg, your BP is on the higher side - try to measure bp at the same time of the day with the same instrument, also measure basal bp that is the bp taken on rising in the morning - follow some precautions to lower it - have a salt restricted diet, avoid salty foods such as pickles, papads & namkeens, also avoid more than 2-3 cups of tea, coffee per day, avoid alcohol & smoking if you do - have more of fruits, vegetables, wholegrains that is fibre rich foods - do regular exercise such as walking, jogging, swimming, playing a game, yoga, meditation & deep breathing to lower your bp & to keep fit.
