AGE: 23
Symptoms: I had chronic tonsillitis for one-and-a-half years, and it was wearing me down. I was getting sick every two to three weeks and getting infected tonsils four to six times per year. After I had tried the usual salt water gargle and many rounds of antibiotics, my doctor recommended surgery to remove my tonsils. I decided to see a naturopathic doctor to seek natural treatment.

Health recommendations: My ND, Dr. Kanji, recommended some herbs to boost my immune system and some at-home treatments to prevent my chronic tonsil infections. He also gave me advice on tonsil irrigation, other than salt water gargling, that helped.

The results: I have been tonsillitis-free for five months now since doing the treatments. My immune system has strengthened, and I get sick less throughout the year. I didn’t have to get the surgery to remove my tonsils!
