Topic third almond (throat almond) comes back like a boomerang. Literally and figuratively, because even Once cut, an overgrown almond likes to grow back. Record holders cut it up to ten times.

However, is there a way to reduce oversized almonds and thus avoid cutting them out? What to do so that the third almond does not grow back?

We know effective methods for overgrown almonds that avoid surgery. Unfortunately, they are not easy to use ...

A typical preschool problem

Overgrown almond is a problem that concerns an increasing group of children, the trend is increasing from year to year.

Experts have no illusions - the reason is frequent infections, most often starting when the child goes to kindergarten or nursery and his immune system is measured with numerous pathogens.

That's when the almond, which is supposed to protect against infections, begins to function incorrectly.

Overgrown almond = more frequent diseases

Tonsil hypertrophy is a process that often begins when a child goes to kindergarten, where pathogens are measured: viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites. The reaction is all right. Tonsils protect health ... However, hypertrophy itself becomes the cause of frequent illness. Paradox?

All because the tonsils are made of connective tissue and absorbent lumps. It is in them that the process of multiplication of immune lymphocytes begins, which protect against infection. Unfortunately, when they themselves become the target of an attack, they do not function properly. What weakens them?

E.g parasites, mushrooms. Reasons for hypertrophy are also frequent infections that the body can't handle as well diet… .

Overgrown almond and diet

It has been shown that overgrown almond is a consequence of a poor diet. If the toddler eats mainly white bread (wheat), milk and sugar (in the form of lenses, sweet cheese, desserts, cereals, etc.), tonsils begin to function worse. Absorbent papules disappear, as a result of which the tonsils overgrow, are surrounded by connective tissue and cease to fulfill their role. Instead of protecting, they become the cause of frequent illnesses.

Overgrown almond and common diseases

If your child has an overgrown almond, he'll probably have more often:

  • throat infections
  • nose infections
  • sinusitis
  • ear infection
  • has hearing problems.

People who had overgrown tonsils in childhood, in adult life they are more likely to have hearing problems, snore and have sleep apnea- which, unfortunately, can lead to heart and vascular diseases.

Tonsil hypertrophy also leads to craniofacial defects and malocclusion.

Overgrown almond and difficulty breathing during sleep

A study conducted by the "Healthy Sleep" foundation as part of the program "My child does not snore" showed that more than 6% of first graders suffer from sleep breathing disorders due to overgrown almond. Common symptoms include:

  • snoring, wheezing, grunting during sleep,
  • restless sleep
  • frequent wake up at night,
  • very high activity during the day,
  • the child is hyperactive
  • he has a staring expression - he often opens his mouth while watching TV,
  • learns to breathe through the mouth.

In adults, night apnea results in fatigue, in children it manifests itself completely differently. Children with breathing problems during the day are hyperactive, which is often mistakenly diagnosed as ADHD.

Overgrown almond - what to do?

If your child has an overgrown almond, first and foremost check what is the cause of the problems. Of course, you can immediately remove the almond surgically, but if we stop at this, we risk that the problem will reoccur.

That's why good doctors recommend checking your child for:

  • the presence of parasites, fungi, protozoa.

Next for preventive purposes, it is recommended to use a diet low in sugar, wheat (white bread, pasta, etc.) as well as to limit milk consumption.

Overgrown almonds can be shrunk using medicines. Unfortunately, these work up to a point. If the almond is too big, surgery will be necessary. In many cases, diet changes and diagnostics for the presence of parasites avoid problems with the third almond.
