Home Remedies For Enlarged Adenoids in Children
When you open your mouth wide, you will notice two small tissue masses on either side of the back of your throat. These are your tonsils. Just above them and further back in your throat near the nasal passages lay a pair of glands known as the adenoids. Adenoids are important glands, as they help protect the body against bacterial and viral infections. They play a key role in filtering lymphatic fluid and trapping germs that pass through the nose and mouth. But like tonsils, adenoids are vulnerable to infection, as they are part of the continuously functioning lymphatic system.
If the adenoids become infected, they get inflamed and swollen, leading to a health problem known as adenoiditis.
Here are the top 5 home remedies for enlarged adenoids in children.
1. Salt Water Gargle.
The best and the most effective remedy for enlarged adenoids in children is gargling with salt water. While the warm water has a soothing effect on the sore throat, the salt helps kill the microbes that cause the infection. Also, the salt will help relieve pain and bring down the swelling.
2. Cod Liver Oil.
Another good remedy is cod liver oil.
It contains several nutrients including selenium that support effective lymphatic flow. Also, the essential fats in the oil help reduce inflammation, thus helping to shrink the adenoids. Cod liver oil can be found as a supplement or liquid. For children under 12, the liquid form is best. You can give about 1 teaspoon of it to your child (age 1 years or more) daily. You can also consult your doctor regarding the dosage and how to give cod liver oil to your child.
The sulfur-containing compounds in garlic have strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help deal with enlarged adenoids.
The compounds can destroy and combat pathogenic or disease-producing bacteria. They are also effective in controlling and reversing the inflammatory process in the body.
Ginger is another effective remedy for treating respiratory infections in both children, and adults, thanks to its antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
When taken daily, honey helps heal enlarged adenoids very quickly.
Honey is an effective anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent, which can help reduce the symptoms as well as fight the cause of the problem.
