Sleep Disorder & Snorig due to Enlarged Tonsils

Hi,

My son is 6 year old. He use to snore a lot since he was a baby. He got his adenoids out about 4 years ago when he was 2 years old. Recently, he started snoring again. It seems like his tonsils are enlarged this time that are causing him to snore very very loud in the night and sometime we also feel temporary cessation of breathing.
Please advice any homeopathic remedy that can help our son with his enlarged tonsils and snoring in the night.
Thanks!

Thanks for your prompt reply. Below is additional information regarding my son.

1. He likes warm surroundings.

2. His attitude is normal towards his friends and relatives. He likes to play and spend time with his friend.

3. Other that tonsils and snoring in the night, he has seasonal allergies. Itching in the eyes and drainage in the nose and sometimes during peak allergy seasons he gets Vernal Conjunctivitis.

4. He is worse as soon as he sleeps. We can hear him snoring very loudly and also feel temporary cessation in his breathing. He is worse when sleeping with face up or rolled on his right side. Get little better when rolled on his left side or sleeping on his belly. He is a mouth breather and we can hear him breathing even when not sleeping.

5. I feel his snoring is completely associated with his tonsils. Even when tonsils are not aggravated, they are just so big giving less room for him to breath and eat. He does clearing cough often during the day especially when eating meals.

6. He has normal thirst. prefers warm milk to drink but also likes drinking cold juices or water.

7. Bowel movements are normal.

8. He likes to move around, play outside but enjoys playing video games more than any other sports. He is not very enthusiastic about playing sports.

Thanks for all your help,

Pooja

Please give him three doses of Calcarea Carb 200c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 10 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 15 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Just wanted to make sure I understood it correctly. 3 doses of Calcarea Carb 200c (1 dose every 4 hrs) ONLY for ONE DAY.

Is that right?

HI Kadwa...

It's been almost 2 weeks, since we gave our son the suggested dosage of medicine. He did much better the first few days. But, has started to snore again, especially right after he goes down to sleep. I can see his allergies are bad too..the drainage inside the throat aggravates the snoring and tonsils. I have been giving him Zyrtec. (on need basis)
Look forward to hear from you.

Thanks!

Please give him a single dose of Calc Carb 200c once a day every week say every friday.
Please don't give him the dose if he is doing well and there are no problems.
You may give him 1 pellet each of the following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours on need basis when he has bad allergies instead of zyrtec.
natrum sulph 6x
kali mur 6x
Please don't give the tissue salts on the day you give him calc carb.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 15 minutes before or after taking medicine.
