Do these enlarged tonsils need surgery?

Do these enlarged tonsils need surgery?

My 3 year old daughter has large tonsils and they are giving her problems and throat infections and inner ear problems, etc. I’m sure you know the drill. Of course the doctor wants to cut out everything he can find. Is that the only way to go? Or is there a homeopathic or alternative way to shrink the tonsils down to where they should be? We are taking her to a homeopathic doctor here, but we haven’t seen any results yet.
Any ideas?
Below is a recommendation from a friend who has a supplement store…

1.Vitamin C Chewables 500mg as many as she can get or at least 3 a day.
2.Chuan Xin Lian Pian 1 tab 3 times a day (The pill is bitter and she’s only 3 so you may need to crush it and mix with honey to get it down)
3.Quick Defense by Gaia Herbs (The formula is a liquid in a cap and can be pierced, mixed with honey or juice then swallowed)
4.Beta Glucan 200mg by Solaray 1 cap daily, open cap and mix in juice.


I am unable to comment on the efficacy of the supplements recommended, however, good homeopathic treatment should certainly help your daughter and prevent any need for surgery. Children respond very well and easily to homeopathic treatment. Give your doctor the time of a few months at least, sometimes it takes time to find a suitable remedy. If you are still not satisfied then it is best to find another good homeopath.
