Tonsils and exercise

I have chronic tonsil problem. I keep it in control by preventing very cold drinks, getting cold etc.

strange thing that happens is that whenever I try to start weight training, incidentally, my tonsils go bad. two years back, I had an attack lasting 15 days, when I had exercised for 1-1/2 months. one year back, I was hopitalized, after exercising for one month.

Now I started again and my tonsils are getting raw.
everything start with feeling colder, esp in my right year.

my details are in http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/21244/

is the problem stated there connected to this?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
have you ever had glandular fever?

Stay away from exercise - some people can get an adrenalin "buzz" by beating hell out if their body .

Your body is saying "DO NOT DO THIS TO ME" .

Your tonsils are dealing with a problem caused by tiredness and lack of vital force.

Go to bed with a good book for 2/3 weeks.

As for remedies look at

Hep Sul

See which you think matches your conditions and come back.

what is glandular fever?

if it is fever because of tonsils, yes all of these times mentioned afore, I come down to high fever ... but not this time .. I stopped.

mostly tonsil problems start when I start feeling cold in my right ear. the whole ear becomes icy cold. then the right side starts feeling that something is going wrong and if I dont act (ie gargle etc), tonsils get bad and then I fall sick :(

Odd that , it all seems to point to Lycopodium.

If you eat little and often , have a droopy feeling about 4 in the afternoon -- probably confirms it.

I have taken lyco IM weekly for a month, last month.

yes, I do feel droopy in the afternoon, esp after lunch. Just feel like dying with sleep. I dont eat often. generally 3 meals plus teas.
tjalal last decade
OK not Lyc .

So lets look at Hep Sul check it out and say what YOU think

I have often used Bell 30 for a case like yours successfully.

If you find that the remedies suggested above do not help you, you can use Bell 30c dose 2 pellets taken 3 times daily.
Joe De Livera last decade
all of this is pretty chronic, do you think 30C would work?
tjalal last decade
As you probably know, chronic ailments react best to the lower potencies starting from 6c. I suggested the 30c as a medium potency which you can take for some time on a daily basis in the dosage I indicated in my last post.

I recommend that you use this dosage and report back in a few days.
Joe De Livera last decade
bell seems to have worked till now. thanks Joe.

I will post if anything goes wrong.

for how long should I take bell 30C.
tjalal last decade
I am glad to note that you have taken my advice and used Bell 30 and discovered that it is more effective than all the other remedies suggested.

I invariably use Bell 30 as I have discovered that it is the most effective remedy for any infection of the throat. It is most effective when one takes it as soon as one notices a sore throat or any unusual dryness in the throat which comes on suddenly which usually is the precursor to an infection. If Bell does not react within about 3 doses, Rhus Tox 30c can be used and
the dose is the same for both remedies of 3 pellets every 3 hours till the condition is cleared. It is very important to remember that after the infection is dealt with the remedy must be continued on the day after positive relief is observed as otherwise there is a good chance that the same infection may recur.

I have also observed sometimes that when the throat infection is stabilized, another virus creeps into the nose causing coryza, sneezing, and the general malaise. This is the beginning of a cold and I use Ferr Phos 30x to deal with the nose infection. This remedy is usually available in a triturated tablet and the dose is 1 tablet taken every 3 hours till relief is noticed when the frequency of the dosage can be reduced to 1 tablet thrice daily.

An alternate remedy is Gelsemium 30 dosage 2 pellets every 3 hours.
Joe De Livera last decade
thanks joe for all this good advice. This throat problem has really made my life miserable. I will keep all this details in mind.

many thanks again!
tjalal last decade
bell seems to help but problem sometimes recurs after a couple of days.

another symptom is cold sweats all over the body, especially forehead, eyebrow, neck and lowerback. I generally feel very weak and unable to exercise, clim stairs etc, although diet is OK. Digestion is also not very good. Yellow spot on the middle of lower lip.
NT: nowadays, weather is extremely hot around 45C. (but these symptoms were there before also)
tjalal last decade
Can others who are experienced please check this case and advise ?

I see that Bell seems to give you relief but the relief does not seem to be permanent. I would not like you to be on Bell indefinitely.

You may use Nat Phos 6x for your digestive problem. Dose 2 tablets after lunch and dinner.
Joe De Livera last decade
thanks Jo

some practitioners, esp the eastern ones, are of the veiw that biochemic medicines are sometimes given according to the zodiac sign.

I'm pisces.

any thoughts?
tjalal last decade
I'm afraid that I do not subscribe to the astrological influence on any remedies.

I do know however that the Biochemic Nat Phos 6x helps with any gastrtic problems and I feel that it may help you.

my left tonsil is bigger than the other. is this normal? i think so.. and i remember, when i was about 12 y/o, while playing, a folder slider(stick-shaped plastic) accidentally hit my inner mouth, probably a tonsil, it bleeded... and nowayears, i notice a white ring-like (zigzag or borken lines) in the bigger tonsil.. is it the mark left by the accident? and also, there is a blackish-brown area in the edge of the bigger tonsil(near the center) ..... what is your findings?
