Tonsillitis is a very common affection manifested by the inflammation of the lymphatic tissue in the throat right behind the tongue. The causes of tonsillitis may be either bacterial or viral, but it is not uncommon to have it started by aggressive fungi such as Candida Albicans. Sore throat, swallowing difficulty, temperature, running nose, headaches and nasal congestions are among the most frequent symptoms associated with this affection. Usually the traditional treatment involves the immediate administration of antibiotics; however, in the case of repeated tonsillitis crises, antibiotics no longer make a viable solution as they expose the body to other health risks. For such situations, there are all sorts of alternative solutions to be taken into consideration.
One of the most powerful natural antibiotics is propolis, a natural wax collected by bees from tree buds and used to seal the various open spaces of their hives. However recent research has shown that it has other properties too: for instance it keeps the parasites at the distance and disinfects anything that it is applied too. Propolis natural remedies are usually prepared in hydro-alcoholic solutions as it dissolves while also preserving all the active principles. Usually, a propolis tincture contains 30% concentrated propolis, which is highly enough to help you fight local infections. The best medical applicability was proved in the treatment of tonsillitis. It destroys bacteria and viruses, while at the same time it stimulates the immune system.
The best supplement form to use in the case of tonsillitis is propolis spray, which will pulverize the substance directly to the affected area. There are no side effects to its use and it works well in combination with other herbal remedies such as calendula tincture. The association of the two in the treatment of tonsillitis has been crowned with success for people of different ages. Propolis can be administered to children, particularly to those who have suffered from repeated viral infections; it is a means of fortifying the immune system, acting on a prophylactic basis as well.
