Homeopathy treatment or homoeopathy medicine is a medical system built on the principle that like cures like. It primarily uses potentised (extremely diluted) remedies to stimulate the body’s own healing functions. The word homeopathy comes from the Greek words homios (similar) and pathos (suffering), and the basis of the method is that like cures like. Homeopathy started to develop during the end of the 18th century, although some fundamental ideas have been known for a long time in Indian and Oriental Medicine. They have also been noted by historical medical personas like Hippocrates and Paracelsus.

Homeopathic herbal remedies or a homoeopathic remedy used in homeopathy are usually potentised, which means that they are diluted in several stages. Other remedies are used as well.
The theory behind the potentization is that the effectiveness of a remedy is inversely proportional to its main substance. The potency isn’t in the substance itself, but in its pattern, and the less there is of that substance the more powerful the pattern. This is explained by that energy is created and augmented through the rhythmic shaking of the solution when it is diluted.

 Swollen left tonsil in 3 year old boy

Hi wondering if anyone has any experience of this, my little boy who is 3 has a very swollen left tonsil which appears to also be connected to the uvula. I really am not sure how long this has been like it, although I am almost sure that his left tonsil has always been alittle more swollen than the right which is completely normal in size. So I took him to the doctors yesterday to get an opinion, well I came out of there feeling terrified, she told me that she would refer me to ent and that I should be prepared for the likely hood of them wanting to take them out because of the link with Lymphoma. She said if it was both tonsils they will often leave alone but not the one. I am such a worrier anyway and now I am freaking out about this!. She said he didnt appear to have any glands up in his neck or underarm, which is good but still cant seem to be rational, overdue with second baby on the way so this stress is not good. Any advice would be great, he is unvaccinated, fairly good diet, he does seem to be congested alot of the time, sneezing every morning he wakes up with out fail, he snores and has very very mild sleep apnea. His dad is asthmatic and suffered terrible eczema as a child. Is it possible to have just one very enlarged tonsil and it not have to be anything sinister? Many Thanks Gemma
