Treating Adenoids with Homeopathy

Adenoids are two small pads of lymphatic tissue high in the back of the throat.They are particularly vulnerable to infection and inflammation.
In adults, both tonsils and adenoids shrink. However, they can all swell up again with infections.

Tonsils and Adenoids are the first line of defense against infections entering through the naso-oral route. They trap harmful bacteria and viruses that you breathe in or swallow and also produce antibodies to help your body fight infections better. Unlike Tonsils which remain active for long, Adenoids usually shrink after about age 5 and practically disappear by the teenage years.

Symptoms of Infected Adenoids:

  • Breathing through the mouth
  • Snoring when asleep
  • Talking with a ’blocked nose’ sound
  • The inability to pronounce certain consonants, including ’m’ and ’n’
  • Dry and sore throat because of breathing through the mouth
  • Yellow or green mucous coming from the nose.

Because adenoids are located near the opening of the Eustachian tubes, inflammation or enlargement of the adenoids may block the tubes, thereby contributing to middle ear infections.
