For temporary relief of swollen tonsils, throat pain, and burning of the throat
According to the German system of homotoxicology the tonsils are organs of excretion for toxins, and
detoxification processes as well as inflammatory reactions. One theory is that many cases of chronic and
recurring tonsillitis are due to the fact that the acute stage of the inflammation was quickly suppressed by
powerful pharmaceutical drugs and the detoxification process was not able to occur. In treating tonsillitis one
should attempt to both destroy the pathogen and also aid in the discharge of toxins.
Symptoms include swelling and pain in the neck, pain in the throat, particularly painful swallowing, and often
pain radiating to the ears. Other symptoms may be high fever, abscesses on the tonsils, temporary hearing loss,
headache, hoarseness, coughing, vomiting, and general ill feelings and fatigue.
