Dr. Dewey discusses the homeopathy treatment of Adenoids in his bestselling book Practical Homeopathic Therapeutics….


      **Hydrastis is perfectly homoeopathic to the totality of the symptoms produced by adenoid vegetations, it has the yellow mucus and general lymphoid hypertrophy.

**Dr. Lambrechts, of Antwerp, uses a tampon of **Hydrastis and glycerine, one part of the tincture to six of glycerine, introduced deep into each nostril, having the child make inspirations, leaving it there about fifteen minutes. He regards surgical intervention as merely palliative and medical treatment indispensable.

**Kali bichromicum may also be indicated.

Calcarea phosphorica. [Calc-p]

      Highly recommended by copper, Clifton and many others as a most efficacious remedy in adenoid vegetations. It corresponds to the dyscrasia, which permits adenoid growths or tonsillar enlargement. **Calcarea iodide may be used in cases which are febrile in nature.

**Baryta carbonica is also a useful remedy, especially in children who have recurring attacks of acute tonsillitis.

Cistus Canadensis. [Cist]

      In scrofulous or arthritic individuals who have adenoid vegetations. There is extreme sensitiveness to cold air, this is characteristic. Sensation of heat and dryness in the throat so intense that the patient must drink to relieve. Cold air inhaled causes distress in the throat, the 6th potency seems to succeed the best. **Cistus has a special affinity for the naso- pharynx.

Tuberculinum. [Tub]

      **Adenoids are greatly benefited and often times permanently cured by a weekly dose of **Tuberculinum or preferably Bacillinum.

Agraphis nutans. [Agra]

      Obstruction of the nostrils from adenoids. Throat deafness. Clarke of London regarded this remedy as a leading one in cases of adenoids. It was first used by Copper in 1892. Deafness and deaf-mutism, breathes with mouth;open. It is essentially a catarrhal remedy and acts specially on the glands connected with the nasal cavity, and its use generally avoids adenoid surgery.
