Tonsilitis is the inflammation of tonsils and in Ayurveda, it is called as Mukha pitta vikara(mucous membrane Pitta disorder). Excessive mukha pitta (mucus) in body causes this condition.
Ayurvedic medicines are much effective for this problem. As per Ayurveda, the early treatment helps to prevent other serious complications like sinusitis, chronic otitis media etc which might develop due to recurrent infections of upper respiratory tract. So early detection and timely treatment is very important for best results. The time period from onset of symptoms to recovery varies from person to person depending upon individual constitutional strength and severity of the illness. There may be secondary
Mukha pitta can be accumulated in the body because of many reasons like eating spicy, junk, or acidic foods that increase the pitta. Or due to poor Vata reducing diet that causes accumulation of Mukha pitta and mucus in throat, sinus cavities, nose, and mouth. That's why sometimes you have a stuffy nose while taking a good diet for your digestion.
In Ayurveda, if we observe closely then it is all about balancing one dosha with another dosha which ultimately leads to a balance of the whole body with the mind too. And this kind of approach is much better than the western approach where medicines are given which attacks a particular part/organ of the body like antibiotics or steroids and masking the problem, instead of removing it permanently.
Ayurvedic medicines are specifically prepared for each patient which has to be used in combination with healthy lifestyle recommendations. The diet must be strictly Vata reducing food because if you take a spicy or non-Vata reducing food then you will develop mukha pitta again and your tonsilitis will worsen. Also Ayurveda suggests Kapha pacifying diet on recovery period to reduce the Kapha dosha level from the body.

Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils that happens when either the adenoids or the tonsils become infected. The tonsil and adenoid tissues are part of immune defense system in our body, so get inflamed when we encounter a virus or bacteria infection in our mouth and throat. This causes pain, swelling and redness on these parts.
Swelling and redness over both your inner cheeks (called as pharyngeal).This results to difficulty swallowing food stuffs. Although you lose appetite due to pain but if more then one day go by with no eating or drinking this may result in dehydration and even fainting . Discharge from your nose or mouth. High fever and bad breath (halitosis).
Kids have tonsils that are larger and the adenoids (tiny glands located at the back of your nasal passage) get inflamed very easily. This is because a child's immune system is not as strong as an adult's. So when there is an infection present in his/her mouth then it travels up to the tonsils faster than adults.
When you suffer from tonsillitis it usually shows early symptoms such as sore throat, pain on swallowing, and also burning sensation while breathing through your nose. You might feel like something irritating your throat and if you try to swallow then it may trigger severe pain. So you will find difficulty swallowing and would like to drink something cool to soothe the throat.
There are different forms or stages tonsillitis may be present in:
Acute Tonsilitis - this form is usually caused by a bacterial or viral infection that irritates your throat area, causing swelling and soreness. If not treated on time it can lead to other complications such as tonsil stones. This type of tonsil inflammation usually lasts for 2-3 weeks but can also take longer depending on how quickly your immune system fights off the bacteria/virus.
Chronic Tonsilitis - if it persists for more than 3 weeks then it is called chronic tonsillitis. This form of infection can be caused by a number of factors such as bacteria, viruses, or any allergen that the patient may have an allergy to. In this stage, inflammation may occur due to food substances that pass through your throat and go down into your lungs. These foods include peanuts, shellfish, etc..
Chronic infection without proper treatment can increase the risk of developing tonsil stones.
