Ayurvedic Treatment of Tonsillitis


Tonsils are present in the neck region that acts as the first line of defense against many infections that try to enter the body through your mouth. These tonsils are aggressive works in the initial years of life and their functioning tends to decline with age. Thus the infection of the tonsils is commonly seen in the early years of life- school-going children of the age of 5 to 15 years. The infection of the tonsils is called Tonsillitis. Many rare cases include the occurrence of Tonsillitis in adults. Tonsillitis is an irritating infection that has a high recurrence rate and is usually removed by surgery. Through this article, we will discuss how you can prevent surgery with the usage of ayurvedic medicines.



Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils that are present at the back of the throat. The inflammation occurs due to an infection in the throat that can be either bacterial or viral. School-going children come in contact with many new infections and suffer from Tonsillitis like diseases. You need to maintain good hygiene and teach your child some measures to prevent such infections from entering their body. There are three types of Tonsillitis

  1. Acute Tonsillitis
  2. Recurrent Tonsillitis
  3. Chronic Tonsillitis

In many cases, Tonsillitis can become severe and cause pus filling, sleep apnea (Difficulty in breathing while sleeping), and spreading of infection to surroundings in the body like complications.

Ayurvedic Aspect

In Ayurveda, we can correlate Tonsillitis with ‘Galayu’. Gala means throat or neck that gets infected and inflamed. This disease occurs due to weak immunity in children. Excess ama dosha accumulation in the body leads to an imbalance of doshas and toxins accumulation. This leads to the weakening of the immune system and vice versa. The infections are treated and toxins are eliminated along with balancing doshas to manage Tonsillitis. Poor digestion causes ama dosha accumulation thus, proper digestion is ensured. Many precautions, diet management, and ayurvedic medicines are recommended in texts to treat this condition naturally.


Tonsillitis is an infectious disease that can be caused due to viral or bacterial agents. The most common bacterial agent responsible for the occurrence of Tonsillitis is

Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria The bacteria enters the body of the child through the respiratory route and causes serious health issues such as Tonsillitis.
