What is Adenoid?

Adenoids are the mass of pair soft tissues present in the back of the nasal cavity which can also be known as pharyngeal tonsils. Adenoids are part of the lymphoid system and made of the same types of lymphoid tissues. Everybody has adenoids at birth and in childhood, but gradually it shrinks with aging and by adulthood maximum people’s adenoids have disappeared.

But sometimes this nasal cavity enlarged and cause allergy and for that need of homeopathic medicine for adenoids in children is required as they offers no side effects to child health.

Structure and Function of Adenoids

Adenoids glands are the pair of patch tissues present behind the uvula on the upper part of the nasopharynx. The upper surface of adenoids has a thin layer of ciliated epithelial cells covered by a thin film of mucus.

The cilia are the microscopic hair-like projection from epithelial cells that move constantly in a wave-like manner to propel the mucus secreted from the mucus layer downward to pharynx. The adenoids have protective action against the infection.

When you breathe you take lots of bacteria virus, various dust, and foreign bodies with the air. Those are trapped in the epithelial mucus membrane of adenoids and the cilia present in the epithelial tissues throw out them towards the pharynx to swallow.

Clinical Significance of Adenoid

In childhood, everyone’s immune e system is a week in comparison to an adult person. So there are maximum chances of getting sick. As the age increases the immune system gets more Adenoids to have a protective role for the body. Those two masses present at the back of the nasal cavity.

They consist of lymphoid tissues like all lymph nodes. Those two adenoids help to clean the bacteria and other foreign substances that do enter inside our body by air we breathe in.  So it protects our body from the outside enemies. By repeated exposure to foreign substances, they gradually get enlarged.

These are some common symptoms of enlarged adenoids and tonsils and for that different homeopathic treatment can be considered to treat it:

  • A hypertrophied or enlarged adenoid used to block the airflow pass through the nasal passage.
  • Blocking of the nose or stuffy nose
  • Talking as if the nostrils are pinched
  • Noisy breathing
  • Ear problem like frequent middle ear infection and pain in the ear
  • The problem in sleeping like suddenly wake up from sleep (obstructive sleep apnea)

Homeopathy Treatment for Enlarged Adenoids

Adenoids are located at the back of the nasal cavity. They protect the body from the infection to spread down to the lungs. They are present at birth and grow until the child is between the ages of 3 and 5. Then they usually begin to shrink after around age 7. At the time of infection, the adenoids get enlarged and automatically come to their normal size when the infection is gone.

But in some cases, it persists in enlarged condition years together. It is caused by the allergic condition. Hence if a child has chronic adenitis then it is sure that it is due to the allergic caused. But why all are not getting chronic adenitis in an area but only some are getting affected. It is because the child having enlarged adenoids has a very hypersensitive immune system that reacts vigorously to many allergens or antigens. Others are not suffering because their immune system is not so much susceptible to that allergen. 

The symptoms are just the manifestation of the enlarged condition of adenoids. So to clear out the symptoms of adenitis for a temporary period of time by any medicines or to cut down the enlarged adenoids is not the real solution of this disease.

Those adenoids are in fact helping our body by protecting the outward infection. So without removing them if some treatment is given to check the repeated infection that can rather helpful. Here the repeated infection of adenoids is occurring due to the hypersensitized immune system of the child.

So it is highly required to start a treatment to minimize the hypersensitivity using homeopathic remedies of the immune system to work healthily so that the child will not get frequent attacks of adenitis and in the course of time when there will be no further infection automatically the adenoids would be shrink.
