Homeopathy: A Gentle Way To Treat Adenoids

Your little ones are the centre of your universe. Everything they do is bound to catch your attention. Obviously, one thing as a parent that you would be concerned about the most would be their health, food and overall well-being, isn’t it? But then, kids tend to fall sick. As heartbreaking as it is to see them curl up in their beds, their faces dull and the home silent without their usual activities, yet, it’s a part of growing up and it must be dealt with, no?

But, what if their health is constantly not in good shape? What if something is bothering them and they are unable to communicate with you? It worries you, but here’s when you should take a closer look at the symptoms that could be a clue. Let’s take a look at a few situations. 

Is your child always leaving his/her mouth open?

Even though it might look like a way of attracting attention, observe carefully as to how frequently they are demonstrating this behavior. If it’s becoming a common habit, it might be suggestive of the fact that there is something preventing them from breathing freely through their noses and obstructing it. That’s one of the reasons why they would be breathing through their mouths. 

Is he/she sleeping properly?

Sleep is critical for a child’s health and growth. Your child’s sleep can reveal quite a few things about their health. If they don’t sleep well, it would mean that they are not well-rested. This could result in crankiness, difficulty in concentrating, lethargy or lack of energy and an overall illness. So, observe your child’s sleeping pattern and consider the following questions:

  1. Does your child sleep with their mouth open? This is a sign that there is definitely something obstructing free breathing. 
  2. Do you hear them snore? Even though it might be very funny initially, yet, snoring is also indicative of an obstruction in the airway. 
  3. Do they toss and turn all night? 
  4. Do they try to get their heads to an elevated position to get better sleep?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to at least two questions, then chances are high that your child could have enlarged adenoids. 

Enlarged Adenoids: Explainer

Adenoids are glands that are located in the connecting space between the nasal cavity and the throat. In young children, they play the role of trapping bacteria and viruses that make their way into their bodies through the nose. Adenoids are associated with immunity, but they are not critical to the body’s functioning. When they become infected, they swell up, right above the tonsils. This results not just in obstructed breathing, but also cause difficulty in swallowing, pain, swelling around the neck, ear pain, difficulty in sleeping and snoring. 

What To Do If Your Child Has Enlarged Adenoids?

If your child has enlarged adenoids, most doctors will suggest surgically removing it. Obviously, to even imagine your child’s throat being prodded by medical instruments is scary and painful. However, it doesn’t mean that there is no way out. 

Homeopathy as a branch of medicine focuses on gentle, yet effective healing. Through the use of natural ingredients, homeopathy focuses on holistic healing. While there are zero side effects of the medicines, the results are excellent. Homeopathy has a three-pronged approach to adenoids:

  1. To bring down the size of the swelling.
  2. To boost the immunity of the child.
  3. To prevent recurrence.
