Manuka honey is an effective remedy for tonsillitis, which is a painful inflammation of the tonsils found on either side of the throat.
The lymph tissue that makes up the tonsils is part of our immune system and produces white blood cells that fight off pathogenic bacteria and viruses that try to enter the body through the mouth. In the process, the tonsils themselves become infected and inflamed.
A sore throat, difficulty in swallowing food and fever are common symptoms.
Tonsillitis is often treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen. In case of severe, recurring tonsillitis, tonsils may be surgically removed.
However, natural remedies like manuka honey should be tried instead of surgical removal or antibiotic treatments that are potentially harmful.
Taking a teaspoonful of manuka honey 3-4 times a day brings down the infection and inflammation whether it is caused by bacteria or virus. It acts by directly destroying the pathogens with its antimicrobial substances as well as stimulating body’s own defense system.
