The adenoids are a mass of soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Like lymph nodes, adenoids are part of the immune system and are made of the same type of tissue (lymphoid tissue). White blood cells circulate through the adenoids and other lymphoid tissue, reacting to foreign invaders in the body.
We all have adenoids at birth and in childhood, but as we head into adolescence they start to shrink. By adulthood, most people’s adenoids have disappeared.

How Homeopathy can help ?

Homeopathy is a great boon for children who are distressed because of enlarged adenoids. Not only does it save your child from the trauma of undergoing a surgery, but also prevents recurrent adenoiditis and aids size reduction.
Homeopathy medicines, which are mostly made from natural resources such as plants and minerals, are safe, gentle, side-effect and chemical free. With millions of satisfied patients and more than 100 remedies for adenoids, Homeopathy is gaining momentum as the most preferred choice of treatment for enlarged adenoids.

Problems caused by enlarged adenoids?

Enlarged adenoids can make it hard to breathe through the nose. Your child might end up breathing only through the mouth. This may cause

  • A dry mouth, which can also lead to bad breath
  • Cracked lips
  • A runny nose
  • Other problems that enlarged adenoids can cause include
  • Loud breathing
  • Snoring
  • Restless sleep
  • Sleep apnea, where you repeatedly stop breathing for a few seconds while sleeping
  • Ear infections


Swollen adenoids block the airways and can cause the following symptoms:

  • frequent ear infections
  • sore throat
  • difficulty swallowing
  • difficulty breathing through the nose
  • habitual mouth breathing
  • obstructive sleep apnea, which involves periodic lapses in breathing during sleep
  • Repeated middle ear infections due to swollen adenoids and clogged Eustachian tubes have serious implications, such as hearing loss, which can also lead to speech problems.
