Homeopathic Remedies For Chronic Sore Throat

CURING CHRONIC SORE THROAT WITH HOMEOPATHIC  REMEDIES

Chronic sore throat can be quite discomforting as it can be a source of perpetual irritation or pain in a person’s throat. It is a chronic infection of the throat characterized by a constant irritation in the throat, with or without pain, and may be associated with hoarseness of voice in some patients. Homeopathic remedies promise a safe and successful recovery and relief from this condition as they address not just the symptoms of soreness but also its underlying factors.

TOP FIVE HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES FOR CHRONIC SORE THROAT

I find the following five to be the favourite remedies for curing a chronic sore throat owing to their efficacy in assuaging the myriad manifestations of this condition:

CAPSICUM: Homoeopathic medicine capsicum is the top-most remedy for cases of chronic sore throat. The main feature is that there is a constant, stitching pain in the throat. Capsicum may be prescribed in cases of chronic sore throat which are associated with gastric or rheumatic complaints. Swallowing of solids or liquids becomes an agonizing exercise. There may be a constant itching in the throat with a sensation of roughness. Capsicum may be given in sore throat when there is a dry cough with thick phlegm. This natural remedy may be prescribed in young girls who stay away from home and feel homesick. There may be a constant desire to drink cold drinks but there is a sudden, agonising pain in the throat during an attempt to swallow.

IGNATIA: I find homoeopathic medicine Ignatia is also a very well indicated remedy in cases of chronic sore throat. This may be associated with chronic tonsillitis. Ignatia may be prescribed when swallowing of liquids is more painful and the pain subsides on swallowing solids. The pain may be stinging and burning in nature. There may be a constant lump-like sensation in the throat with an urge to clear the throat.

PSORINUM: The homoeopathic medicine Psorinum may be indicated in sore throats which tend to be recurrent. There may be a constant pain in the throat which may radiate to the ears during an attempt to swallow. There may a constant desire to stay warm because of the extreme chilliness, so much so that there is a desire to be dressed warmly even during summers. Psorinum may be given to improve the immunity in children who suffer from recurrent upper respiratory infections. There may be a foul-smelling discharge from the throat. All the symptoms are aggravated by a cold in general and by drinking coffee, and usually get better with warmth.

PHOSPHOROUS: Homoeopathic remedy Phosphorous is best prescribed in cases of chronic sore throats in people who suffer from ill-effects of overuse of their voice, for example, in public speakers, singers, teaching professionals etc. Phosphorous may be given when there is a constant tickling and itching sensation in the throat. There may be hoarseness of voice and, at times, there may be a total loss of voice on attempt to talk. There may be an inability to talk on account of pain in the throat. Phosphorous may be prescribed when exposure to strong odours gives rise to a sudden bout of violent cough. There may be a burning pain in the throat on coughing. There is a constant desire to drink cold, refreshing drinks as it gives relief from the burning sensation in the throat. All complaints are worsened by mental exertion, change of weather as well as hot climate, and improved by cold drinks, gargling with cold water and by proper sleep.

SULPHUR: This is one of the best indicated medicines in cases of chronic sore throat. Sulphur may be prescribed when there is a sensation of heat in the mouth and throat. There may a sensation of swelling in the throat as if some foreign body is stuck and there is a constant attempt to clear the throat. Sulphur may be given in people with a hoarseness of voice with a constant burning in the throat. The sputum may be rusty or stained or greenish. Sulphur may be given to reduce the recurrence of throat infections.

What exactly is tonsillitis?

Tonsils are a pair of tissues situated on either side inside your throat. They are made up of lymph tissue (this means that they are a part of our body?s defense system).Their function is to filter harmful bacteria?s and viruses going inside our body through the mouth. These tonsils are filled with white blood cells ready to catch and destroy harmful microorganisms but at times they are overwhelmed by these microorganisms and inflammation in the tonsils takes place. This inflammation in the tonsils is called as tonsillitis. This causes them to swell up and become fiery red in color too

What are the Symptoms of tonsillitis?

The diagnosis of ?Recurrent Tonsillitis? is made if the child has multiple episodes of acute tonsillitis. In acute tonsillitis, Pain in throat is often the symptoms that children first complain off. If you examine your child?s throat with torchlight, you will notice tonsils are enlarged and also red in color. They may also show white spots on them. Other signs and symptoms of tonsillitis include pain while swallowing and or difficulty in swallowing food, fever is common with inflamed tonsils. They may also complain of Headache. , Enlarged and sore glands in the jaw and neck. In some children the voice may also get altered. Airway obstruction due to swollen tonsils may cause mouth breathing, snoring, and nocturnal breathing pauses.

Homeopathy for recurrent tonsillitis.

Homeopathic treatment can treat both the acute condition and also stop the recurrence of tonsillitis. In acute tonsillitis homeopathic medicines such as Baryta Carb, Mercurius group, Belladonna, Aconite, Hepar Sulph work wonders if employed according to their indications. When an acute infection is treated with the right homeopathic medicine, the chances of tonsillitis recurring again also slim down. But in some cases a specialized treatment which actually fortifies the child?s defense system also needs to be done. This kind of treatment is known in homeopathic philosophy as constitutional treatment where Deep-acting medicines are used to treat the constitution of the child and bring about lasting relief

Preventing and Managing tonsillitis

Proper hand wash

This is still the best way to prevent all kinds of infections, including tonsillitis. Make the child wash his hands thoroughly with soap and running water. Make sure that they wash the back side of the hands too.

Saline water gargles

If your child is old enough to do gargles, make sure he does it several times a day, especially during the episode of acute tonsillitis.

Adequate Rest

Plenty of rest is necessary for the child to fight infection. Make sure that the child gets good rest till the symptoms subside

Warm drinks to soothe

Giving them warm drinks like soup tea or hot milk can be very soothing when there is an acute inflammation of tonsils

Sleeplessness and Homeopathy

A few decades ago sleep was thought to be an insignificant activity in our daily life. But with recent advances in medical research, we now know that it is an active process and affects our physical and mental health in many ways.

Sleep is extremely essential for our nervous system to work properly. Some experts believe that sleep is more important for our nervous system. Unlike other organs, the nervous system cannot replace the neurons (nerve cells), so it shuts down during sleep and gives neurons (nerve cells) time to repair and remove the byproducts of their cellular activity.

A good sleep is not only defined by the hours one sleeps but by the quality of sleep too. An individual is said to be suffering from insomnia (sleep disorder characterizing inadequate sleep) when one or more of the following are present: difficulty in falling asleep, waking up frequently during the night with difficulty in returning to sleep, waking up too early in the morning, unrefreshing sleep.

Insomnia can be classified as transient (short term), intermittent (on and off) and chronic (constant). Chronic insomnia can result in a combination of physical and mental disorders. Depression is the most common cause, although physical causes such as night pains caused by arthritis, kidney and heart disease, restless legs syndrome, Parkinson’s disease and hyperthyroidism can also be the causative factors for insomnia. In addition, some other factors also have a role in insomnia: excessive caffeine (tea, coffee) intake, taking of alcohol before bedtime, smoking cigarettes before bedtime, disrupted sleep schedules and excessive sleeping in the afternoon. At times it is the worry of having difficulty in sleeping that causes it. Though insomnia is found in both sexes, it seems to be more pronounced in women after menopause. It is also more in the elderly

Treatment

Whereas the conventional system treats this disease by giving drugs to induce artificial sleep, which frequently may cause side-effects or addiction, the homoeopathic approach is totally safe and natural. It treats insomnia by giving a tiny dose of a substance that in large doses may cause sleeplessness in a healthy person. This tiny dose helps in optimising the sleep regulatory mechanism in the body.

Coffea Cruda is a homoeopathic medicine that is most often used for treating insomnia of acute origin. As the name suggests, it is made from coffee beans. It is indicated when insomnia is due to the mind being overcharged by an excessive inflow of thoughts and ideas at the time of sleep. Nux Vomica is more suited when insomnia is due to the abuse of stimulants, e.g. alcohol, coffee, smoking, etc.

Chronic insomnia needs to be treated according to the cause and also evaluated on the constitutional scale. The high efficacy homoeo-treatment for depression needs a special mention as it is the most common cause for chronic insomnia.

Fighting sleeplessness

The underlying cause: The key is to find out what’s causing insomnia so that it can be dealt with directly. Simply making a few changes in the sleep habits helps many people.

Set a schedule: It is important to set a schedule for sleeping. Sleeping and waking according to a set schedule can help in overcoming insomnia.

Relaxation: Make restful activities a part of your bedtime habits. Any activity – such as bathing, reading and music – which relaxes you should be made a bedtime ritual.

Regular exercise: Set a regular exercise schedule, and for maximum benefits exercise 5-6 hours before sleep time.

Avoid caffeine, alcohol and nicotine: Caffeine drinks – coffee and tea – should be avoided after evening hours. Alcohol and smoking before bedtime should be completely avoided

Wake up with the sun: Make sure that you get up with the sun. Let enough sunlight enter your bedroom in the morning as sunlight helps set the body’s internal biological clock each day.

Don’t lie in the bed awake: If after 30 minutes of lying in the bed you are not able to sleep, it is better that you do something else till you feel sleepy.
