Why do we strive to keep the tonsils?
The tonsils are located in the oropharynx. Diseases are subject to
mainly palatine tonsils (this can be clearly seen through their open mouth).
The outer part of the amygdala "looks" into the oral cavity and pharynx. Tonsils
have a porous structure, they are imbued with special tubes - gaps.
Lacunas - traps for germs and viruses and a kind of "testing ground" where
the immune system is trained to fight against these germs and viruses.
The inner part of each of the amygdala is connected to the throat tissue and
lymphatic duct, which communicates with the whole almonds
Therefore, removal of the tonsils may be a blow to the defenses of the organism.
What is chronic tonsillitis? Why tonsils become inflamed?
If reduced general immunity and / or the body had to face
infectious powerful attack (angina), takes place in the gaps of the tonsils
a real battle between the immune system and microbes.
As a result, the gaps accumulated a large amount of pus,
consisting of dead bacteria, white blood cells, the cells
(Purulent cheesy plugs). Goals pus tonsils stop working
as an immune organ, and pus gaps in excellent
feel and breed disease-causing microbes.
Hence, the characteristic symptoms of chronic tonsillitis:
- Waste products from the microbes get into the tonsils
blood and other fluid environment of the body, poisoning it (tonzillogennaya
intoxication); hence the fatigue, pain in muscles and joints, headaches
pain, depressed mood, and even, in some cases, long-term
- Tonsils are a reservoir of infection (staphylococcus,
streptococci and other bacteria), from which it may spread
body and cause inflammation, primarily
This acne; prostatitis, adnexitis, goiter, inflammation
paranasal sinuses and joints;
- Decaying organic matter in the gaps may have a strong odor (halitosis);
- Tonsils stop working as an immune organ, moreover,
they are transformed into a source of infection, resulting in frequent
- Frequent illness further weaken the immune system, which leads to the further development of tonsillitis.
How dangerous chronic tonsillitis?
Adenoid especially dangerous its complications,
proliferation associated with infection by an organism.
Among the complications
- Rheumatic heart and joints;
- Education prolapse of heart valves;
- Purulent inflammation of the tissues of the oropharynx (peritonsillar abscess);
- Inflammation of the middle ear, hearing loss on this basis;
- Exacerbation of allergic diseases.
Why is chronic tonsillitis are often sick?
Frequent illness in chronic tonsillitis occur for two reasons:
- Tonsils stop working as an immune organ, immunity
reduced, and the slightest provocation (hypothermia, fatigue,
mental stress) leads to a further decrease in the body's defenses and,
hence, microbial attack;
- Tonsils containing purulent cheesy plugs themselves
turn into the source of infection, which, combined with reduced
immunity, leading to self-infection.
Why is deteriorating overall health, there are headaches, muscle and joint pain?
As already mentioned, the waste products of microbes
tonsils into the blood and other fluid environment of the body, poisoning
him. This state is called tonsillogenic intoxication.
Often not identified tonzillogennaya intoxication puts doctors in
a dead end, because It causes persistent depression, headaches,
weakness, fatigue, pain in muscles and joints, prolonged
increase in body temperature, changes in blood tests (increased ESR,
decrease in hemoglobin).
Toxins produced by some microbes are
property damage ligamentous and cartilaginous tissue, they cause inflammation,
and pain in joints and muscles.
As chronic tonsillitis affects the heart?
findings on heart study, chronic tonsillitis.
The fact that the protein beta-hemolytic Streptococcus group A
often parasitic in the tonsils, similar to the protein of connective
heart tissue and human joints. Therefore, possible reciprocal aggression
immune system not only against Streptococcus, but for
own heart and joints. It also explains the chronic
tonsillogenic intoxication (the action of toxins on
connective tissue structures of the heart).
The most serious complication of chronic tonsillitis - rheumatic fever, a dangerous disease that affects the heart and joints.
Sometimes it is only one course of treatment of tonsillitis that
"Magical" way passed allergic rashes, itching and even seizures
asthma. The fact that the long presence of the infectious
focus in tonsils not only lowers immunity, but also distorts its
reactivity, causing allergic shifts.
How we treat chronic tonsillitis?
task №1 - Restore the tonsils as the immune organ. For
We thoroughly washed out of the lacunas of purulent cheesy masses. For
wash using a special preparation containing sea salt and
herbal extracts. After the course washes the ability to gaps
cleanse restored, stops tonzillogennaya
task №2 - Identify the suffering part of immunity and to bring it into
proper condition. To do this, run the immunological
blood tests and subsequent treatment by different immunocorrectors;
if necessary to treatment involved physician immunologist. This allows
Persistent achieve outcomes.
Problem №3 - To avoid exacerbations. The doctor recommends that you
preventive measures. Well proven preventive
washing the lacunae 1-2 times per year (reduced cold incidence in
season, stopped worsening of allergy, asthma).
When do you need a tonsillectomy?
In the first place when the tonsils are so damaged
inflammation that its protective function to perform never be able to
(It is at the same time, focus of infection).
Second is the complications of the heart and joints (rheumatic fever, systemic arthritis).
And third is the inefficiency of conservative treatment, especially when combined with crude disorders in the immune system.
What is the alternative to the removal of the tonsils?
At considerable damage tonsil infection, when gaps in
result take the form of pockets, and can not be extended
cleaned, we apply elektroplazmennuyu coagulation. This procedure
carried out only after complete cleaning of the gaps of the tonsils.
Elektroplazmennaya coagulation solders deformed gaps and
prevents ingress of pathogens. Wherein
workable gap is not coagulated and its function, they retain.
After coagulation elektroplazmennoy need tonsillectomy usually disappears.
