Homeopathy: Swollen tonsils in children
Swollen tonsils are fast becoming a universal experience among children living in today's environment. Homeopathy added to your chiropractic management program can effectively provide you with the right tools to correct the underlying causes behind this condition.
Tonsillar radioblation --shrinking enlarged tonsils with heat--kept tonsils infection-free for 2 years after the procedure, a study of 187 people has found. (Presented at the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons annual conference, Sept 2001)
In radioblation, a penlike device delivers heat by creating several tiny channels in the tonsils. The heat shrinks tissue and creates an internal scar that forms a protective layer to prevent future infections. It takes about 5 minutes and requires mild sedation and a local anesthetic.
Kids with "sleep-disordered breathing," a condition sometimes caused by enlarged adenoids and tonsils, breathe better and sleep sounder after having both removed. But they also gain weight--a 13% bump in excess pounds within a year, reports a SUNY at Buffalo study that tracked 54 kids who'd had the surgery. "The children don't have to work as hard to breathe and are less fidgety," surmises study author James Roemmich, PhD. "Parents can try limiting high-calorie foods and being more physically active with their kids following surgery."
