    Here are some ideas to help heal the issue.

    Natural Cures

    Aromatherapy: Inhalations with bergamot, thyme, lavender, benzoin, tea tree, geranium, and lemon can help soothe symptoms. Lemon essential oil can also be used as a gargle.

    Diet: Drink lots of fluids, especially pure filtered water, diluted fresh organic vegetable juices, warm broths, and light soups. To relieve pain, take two tablespoons of honey with a squeeze of warm lemon juice and sip slowly. If you are taking antibiotics, eat plain, organic yogurt with live cultures to protect healthy intestinal flora.

    Fasting: A pure water or diluted juice fast for the first 48 hours of symptoms can often speed healing. (Learn about Detoxification Therapy for more.)

    Flower Essences: Take Rescue Remedy® for accompanying stress.

    Herbs: Combine the tinctures of cleavers and echinacea in equal parts and take one teaspoon of this mixture three times a day. As an alternative, you can also drink a hot infusion made from equal parts of dried elder flower, yarrow, and peppermint throughout the day.

    Homeopathy: Belladonna, Merc sol., Phytolacca, Lachesis, and Aconite are helpful homeopathic remedies.

    Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
    *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

    Juice Therapy: The following juice combinations can be helpful: carrot, beet, and tomato; carrot, pineapple; carrot, orange; carrot, apple; and carrot, celery, and ginger.

    Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients are recommended: Vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, and zinc lozenges. If you are taking antibiotics, also supplement with Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria. Garlic capsules can also be helpful.

    Alternative Professional Care
    If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown useful for treating tonsillitis: Acupuncture, Detoxification Therapy, Homeopathy (especially the specific Homeopathies available from Germany), Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Neural Therapy, Osteopathy, Oxygen Therapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

    Best of health to you
