Acute tonsillitis is a widespread severe infectious disease primarily affecting palatine tonsils. The inflammatory process may involve other areas of the lymphadenoid pharynx and larynx as well – the lingual, laryngeal and nasopharyngeal tonsils. The infection process can be exogenous (more often) or endogenic (autoinfection).

Infection and tonsillitis

As to infection transmission – Tonsillitis, it can be either airborne or alimentary. Endogenic infection involves the oral cavity or pharynx (chronic inflammation of the palatine tonsils, caries, etc.). Suppurative diseases of the nose and sinus may prompt this kind of infection. Moreover, staphylococci, streptococci (especially haemolytic) and pneumococci usually promote the condition.


There is certainly evidence that the disease Tonsillitis may promote quinsy featuring viral aetiology. Among precipitating factors are local and general hypothermia and decreased organism reactivity. Quinsy usually affects children of both school and pre-school age, as well as adults up to thirty-five to forty years of age, especially in autumn and spring. Patients typically run a high temperature, suffer from malaise and feel pain when swallowing. People with tonsillitis also complain of pain in their joints, headaches, periodic fevers, etc.

Colonic irrigation may ease the symptoms and speed up the recovering. Moreover, with regular colonics, you can improve your immune system and become more resistant to infections mentioned above.
