Tonsils are two glands situated in the throat, one on each side of the throat. An inflammation of the tonsils is called tonsillitis. Tonsillitis can be acute in origin or chronic. Some time in children they are enlarged and may be kissing to each other. This type of tonsils are also called kissing tonsils.

Herbal and Home Remedies for Tonsillitis
One of the most effective home remedies for tonsillitis is the use of lime juice. One common remedy is to mix the juice of a fresh lime or lemon mixed into a glass of water, a few teaspoons of honey, and a pinch of salt. The mixture should be sipped slowly. The acid in the lime or lemon juice is used to kill off some of the infected cells that cause tonsillitis.

Milk & Vegetables
Milk has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with tonsillitis. A mixture of milk and pepper powder can be taken on three to four successive nights. This drink is known to reduce the pain and swelling of the tonsils.Dairy products such as milk, ice cream, yogurt, and cheese should be avoided as often as possible, unless recommended by the herbal and home remedies or a physician.

Tonsillitis Remedies
Vegetable juice such as carrot, beet, and cucumber juice can be taken in order to provide the immune system with the vitamins and minerals needed to combat viral infections. Some cultures use an herb known as the Fenugreek Seed to cure tonsillitis. A few tablespoons of fenugreek seeds are simmered for roughly 30 minutes in one liter of water and then cooled in the fridge.

More Treatment Options
The patient should gargle the entire concoction within 24 hours for best results. Banafsha flowers is another herb that can be taken in order to relieve tonsillitis pain. 10 to 15 grams of Banafsha is boiled in 50 milliliters of milk. After the mixture has been boiled it should be filtered in order to remove the remaining flower leaves. The milk should then be taken while it is still hot.
