Tonsillitis and sleep apnea /adenoids in children

Dear All,
I was searching a lot on the Internet for a homeopathic remedy for my daughter tonsillitis/adenoids/sleep apnea. I found this forum and I writing with great hope that We would be able to avoid surgery.
My daughter is almost 7 years old. She was prematurely born at 34 weeks had a little jaundice but recovered quickly and after she had only one cold in 5 years. Last year when she went to kindergarten she was seek a lot. She got strep throat twice bad allergic cough for about 3 month. We treated strep with antibiotics and cough with homeopathic remedy. now she had 2 strep infections back to back, treated with antibiotics. No fever thou. Now she has sleep apnea , she can not have enough rest at night ,she gasps for after ap to 30 sec of apnea. Her tonsils are still red not as big as they were before, no puss. We have this problems only at night, day time she is ok, joyful, playful, happy. She is very bright, likes music, does not like to be alone. They say we need surgery, but i hope you will help my daughter to avoid it. I would be very grateful for any recommendation.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Give her Ferrum Phos 6x three times a day and Calc Phos 6x four times a day.

Since she is only 7 years old, it should be half dose (should be around 2 pills). It is OK the give both at same time.

Let me know about changes after 5 days.

Thank you very much.
We found only Calc Phos 30c but ordered Calc Phos 6x and Ferrum Phos 6x. At the store they say that it is ok to give her 3 pills of Calc Phos 30c until Calc Phos 6x would arrive. So, we gave her twice Calc phos 30c X 3 pills. (total 6). I searched the Internet and I found out that 6x is less than 30c and actually we gave her way too much. What sould we do now? I am so sorry.
Thank you!

It is OK for her to take Calc Phos 30 twice for a week. After that, you can start using 6x.
dhundhun last decade
Could you ,please be so kind and clarify for me: how many pills of Calc Phos 30c should I give? Again, she is 7 years old.

Thank you very much!
auricica1 last decade
Half the adult dose. For medium size pills, half is two pills.

The 6x will be mini tablets. Four mini tablets is adult dose, so you should give two.

Dear Sir,
May I please know your name?
Now that I am totally confused that I have to sum up all the information I have so far.
I. first week- I will give 2 pills of Calc Phos 30c twice a day.

II. Second week: I will give 2 pills of Calc Phos 6x twice a day ( not 4 times a day as you recommended initially),


Ferrum Phos 6x -2 pills twice a day.

Is this correct?
Thank you,

Calc Phos 6x two pills four times a day (missing a dose is OK). This is to help with shrinking of adenoids. You need to use it for long, I mean couple of weeks.

Ferrum Phos 6x also four times (missing a does is OK). This is mostly to help with redness and swelling.

Today is the 6th day of treatment.To my regret she snores the same, her tonsils are the same size, even more- in the morning I noticed several small white spots on them. No fever. She lost her appetite. But still energetic and active. Do not know what should I do.
auricica1 last decade
Let me know some more information.
1. What about redness?
2. Any fever?
3. Both side same or one side more.
4. Also let me know personality, intelligence, food desires/aversion, etc.

If redness is gone, stop Ferr phos. Start giving Calc Flour 12x (or 6x) and Cal Phos 6x. Both are likely to be needed for long term.

Based on your inputs, I'll add one more remedy.

redness the same. No fever. Both sides involved, they touch each other. Uvula can not be seen. Tonsils' structure- with holes. White spots mostly on upper part of both tonsils. She had big tonsils since birth, but never snored nor had sleep apnea. Also, she has nasal voice.
She has exclusive personality. Very bright, intelligent, phenomenal memory, learns very fast, likes to read, plays piano. Very cheerful and happy. Easily makes friends but prefers only one. Prefers salty food over sweet. Does not like to be alone, needs company. Very attached to the family ( especially dad and brother), sensitive.

Plz use
Belladona 30 3 times a day and
Bryta carb 200 at night report after 7 days.
libra981 last decade
Belladona 30 is OK. I am doubtful about Bar C 200 on an intelligent child - but one can give a try.

Would it be possible for you to get Therabreath products? http://www.therabreath.com/tonsil-stones/tonsil-stones-start....

Therabreath works selectively on the bacteria attacking tonsils. It is not harsh on gum or skin. Results are quick, in a week.
dhundhun last decade
i'll try.

Hello auricica1,

I was just reading your info on your daughter. Amazing! Your daughter is so much like my son. Large tonsils, never getting sick - goes to K5 and now sick all the time. He's 6 (will be 7 in Nov). I had an appt today for Freddy to visit a homeopath for his sleep apnea that had been going on for about a 3 months. But now, he has an earache (w/blood) so the reason for the appt has changed. Of course, they are probably connected. Strep is going around at his school, but he hasn't complained of a sore throat.

I would really like to keep in touch with you since your daughters personality, diet and intelligence are so much the same. (Although, Freddy doesn't have the patience for learning music right now...)

Is there any way we can message each other? I'm not familiar with this forum. Maybe Facebook or direct email?

Thanks so much and I'm hoping your daughter is doing better.
