 How to get rid of swollen tonsils fast

SYMPTOMS Of Tonsillitis

Inflammation and possible infection of the tonsils and the adenoids. If streptococcal bacteria have caused the infection, it is called strep throat.

Sign and symptoms of tonsillitis

There is a sore throat with fever, lack of appetite, chills, headache, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, nasal obstruction, and discharge. The lymph glands may become swollen. Symptoms continue for 24-72 hours, and then gradually subside over 7-10 days. The tonsils may look red and enlarged, and pus may be observed.

Causes Of Tonsillitis


causes of tonsillitis
The tonsils and adenoids are glands containing lymphatic tissue, located in the upper throat. Both are part of the immune system; they protect the body, at the top of the gastrointestinal tract, against infection. Each tonsil contains 200 million lymphocytes. We will here primarily deal with tonsillitis; treatment for adenitis is essentially the same. Strep throat also has the same treatment.
When the body’s resistance is lowered, viruses or bacteria (usually streptococcal) set to work. And a diet of processed and junk food, that is high in carbohydrates and low in protein can also bring on this condition.
If the streptococcal infection strep throat is not present, then the throat condition is eliminated much quicker.
If not cared for properly, strep throat can be potentially dangerous and can lead to rheumatic fever or meningitis.
Food allergies weaken the body: usually cow’s milk, chocolate, or too much white-flour or sugar products. Cow’s milk or wheat are the two primary allergens to beware of.
Antibiotics weaken the body more.

  • Hot salt-water gargles will help.


  • To increase blood circulation in the throat, do alternate hot and cold gargling.
  •  Gargle with goldenseal tea, drinking it as you do this (1 cup 3-4 times a day).

Goldenseal, Echinacea, and garlic act as antibiotics. Tee tree oil helps heal the throat infection. Fenugreek and comfrey loosen the mucous and carries it out of the body. A ¼ teaspoon of lobelia extract, swallowed every 2 hours, will help alleviate fever, pain, and swelling. Avoid people who smoke. Children whose parents are smokers have very high rates of tonsil infections.
