Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. I have tonsillitis, there is pus formation in my throat. Which technique will help me? Dr. J: I think in the beginning you should have an Allopathy doctor to give you a check-up and simple measures may help like gargling with salt water or even sometimes medicine, but it should be just for a few days. Smt. H: If there is pus formation, then naturally there is a strong infection and that has to be killed by a proper strong medicine, so Allopathy in the beginning. But then come to right lifestyle, as we say in yoga, gargling, Jalneti, use of hot water bag on the throat, drinking little warm water after eating food, to help wash the throat, if it is dry then keeping lozenges in the mouth as a lubricant, so in all such ways tonsillitis would go away. '-Itis' means inflammation which is due to infection. When the infection goes, the inflammation goes. In the future, make sure you do some friction on the throat region and around the ears with the hands, to keep the region warm. This will help make you aware at the beginning of such conditions and you can take precautions. Ayurveda gives some remedies such as boiling ginger or Holy Basil (Tulsi) in water and drinking it, that works wonders. Q. How long after a meal should we drink water?
