Tonsillitis and Its yogic cure
The tonsils are part of the lymphatic system, found in oral cavity and pharynx. They are first line of defense against pathogens and they produce white blood cells which help the body to fight against infection. When the tonsils themselves become infected, the condition is called tonsillitis. Yoga is the best exercise of internal organs and also improves our immune system. Yoga suggests a straight and simple path to get rid of tonsillitis through some Yogasanas, Kriyas and Pranayamas. Various Yogasanas, Kriyas and Pranayamas involve a lot of muscular contractions which help in the flow of lymphatic movement throughout the body. The yogic exercises helps in maintaining tone, gives strength and massage to the region. Due to this, the formation of Agranulocytes in the lymph nodes improves; lymph circulates throughout the lymphatic system; and the plasma cells present in the spleen produce antibodies, the protective proteins that provide immunity and decrease the chances of infection in tonsils i.e. tonsillitis. Yoga helps us in attaining all round development and has no side effect. If we practice Yoga regularly it eradicates the problem from our body. Whereas antibiotics has side effects on our body and they just suppress the disease instead of eradicating it. Tonsillectomy, i.e. surgical removal of tonsils, weakens our lymphatic system and further aggravates the condition so it should be avoided as far as possible and should taken as a last option when condition is so worse that even yoga enables to help us.
