enlarged adenoids and tonsils

Hi, my boy has had enlarged adenoids and tonsil since he baby. They have not been infected, just enlarged.He is almost six years old.
When he was little his homeopath gave him first calcarea carbonica and helped. Later he got Pulsatilla and helped (because he kept having problems with adenoids and tonsils).
He was a typical calcarea baby. And later a pulsatilla. He has changed.
But later he was prescribed bacillium or tuberculin (cant remember) and lots of Baryta carbonica. It did not help. He seemed to be allergic as they he would be well and unwell often but not infected.

Last year they enlarged again after a mild cold and remained like that for few months. In Spring he got better with a hayfever spray (allopatic).
Last February he got another mild cold and again they enlarged and he has been struggling with oxygen levels between around 4.30 am and 7.30am in the mornings. In his REM sleep.
They are huge and doctor says now it is time for surgery.
He is a gregarious boy, a bit slow in social skills but kids love him. He is doing well with his reading and little girls love him (he has a sort of doll face). He is cute and small.
He speaks nasaly, has selective mutism, he is low tone and sometime he is just in his little world not noticing things that happen around him.

He received a strong dosis of psorinum and silica in LM but I don't know the potency (it seems he responds to minerals kinesiologically). He got a bit more communicative.
But the glands are still enlarged so he got three dosis of Agraphis Nutans (30c)6 weeks ago. It did not help.
Homeopath went on holidays and unable to see her for several weeks.
Any suggestions? many thanks

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
it was wrong to change from Calcarea Carb to pulsatilla. actually calcarea Carb and pulsatilla are very similar in many respects and even experienced doctors make mistakes. calcarea Carb is worse from cold whereas pulsatilla is better from cold. calcarea has affinity for glands but it is not so marked in pulsatilla except possibly for the parotids and testicles. your child's adenoids have enlarged from exposure to cold , that excludes pulsatilla. you can give him calcarea Carb 200 one dose only and observe for one week.

it makes so much sense. Actually the homeopath that prescribed first calcarea (my kid improved dramatically) when he again got bad she changed it to pulsatilla. I changed homeopaths because I believed she made a mistake. He was a toddler back then. Now at 5 he has a new homeopath who prescribed psorinum/silica/bluebell.

He was this chubby cute gentle baby but now he is a skinny small cheeky gregarious bossy stuborn child. would you still prescribe calcarea carbonica after knowing this info? (I have checked and he still has many of calcarea carb characteristics such as a slow learner but obstinate and independent, he is still floppy, likes structure, fear of dark and spiders, overheat in bed, ah I I forgot to mention he reacted to Dtap vaccination (I had the adult version 6 weeks before I got pregnant -it has mercury and he reacted badly to the 6 months old dosis, I stopped after that any vaccination, He did not have the hepatitis B, just the 2, 4 6 months vaccinations combination dtap/hepatitis B) he had merc sol at one stage for a short time (shall I give him more now) Or should I organise with homeopath dtap homeopathy?
Just please note about calcarea the following:
He can get tired easily but he is always willing to keep going in order to be part of the group of children (his friends mainly). He does not have a tendency to recurrent sore throat and middle ear infections (Only when he was a baby, homeopathy stopped the the serious infections when he was 2). He just get a cold twice a year, the glands enlarge again and they remain for few months enlarged. He does not have constipation, or eczema. He is a bit Slow but he is not at a fearful child, only when he is in new places with lots of new people, takes time for him to accept a new situation. But with friends he can go explore the forest without me, very independent. I must say somehow he is better with homeopathy treatments (his personality is now outgoing but he remains with these enlarged glands several months out of the year and is affecting so much his food intake and now and then his breathing that I think I have to think in surgery, homeopathy has not given us long term solution)
Many thanks for your reply

i think he is still calcarea. the problem is many doctors change medicine without valid reason .you think of change only when the medicine does not work any more.even then the first thing to be changed is the potency. this principle was discovered by late Dr. J.T.Kent and he called it series in degrees.you can give him calcarea carb again. do you remember what potency it was used in ?
telescope 6 years ago
I have just updated my previous post. Thank you for answering so fast!. I can look it up, I may have kept the little note the first homeopath gave me with potency. I think I have a home Cal Carb 30c somewhere. Could I start with that several times a day?
Maria de Gracia 6 years ago
I do have 30c. I only can get 200c online and will take three days at least. Shall I wait or start with 30c? I cant find the notes, but I will hopefully later and I will late you know...my poor child has had so much homeopathy since he is 2 (three homeopaths in total)...I am with little hope...but I will do what you said.

you can give him a maximum of 3 doses in a day and then stop. the medicine must be given time to work. it may be around a week before a repetition is required. do not give him sour things to eat or drink as that may interfere with medicine.
telescope 6 years ago
you can start with Calcarea Carb 30.

I gave him two dosis of 30c Cal Carb yesterday (one in the morning, one in the afternoon). He rejected the third dosis at bedtime. Eat little dinner.
Slept like a baby for the first time in weeks.
This morning he does not want to take food or water. He says his throat is sore.
Is this an aggravation? Does it mean we are right on track? Shall I still try to give him a third dosis or shall I wait and see?
Thank you again
Maria de Gracia 6 years ago
do not give the third dose. it is an aggravation. now you wait.

Thanks :) he is now eating breakfast midmorning...finally.
Maria de Gracia 6 years ago
Telescope, I have good news, his tonsils have shrunken. Especially the right one. The left is still big but there is now space in his throat to eat more. They were touching a month ago. Please advise if I should give him more medicine. He has been quite chatty (yesterday) so the adenoids may be better but he still sounds nasal, but he has slept through the night the last two nights. I am so thankful :)

only thing to do now is wait. the rule for repetition is " repeat only when symptoms come back." the medicine may work for 7 days or more.
