Ayurveda/Adenoids in Children


QUESTION: Hello Doctor,

Our 3.5 years son has been diagnosed as suffering from enlarged Adenoids by Paediatrician and then by ENT specialist. ENT specialist has prescribed the following medicines:

1. Cefpodoxime Proxetil (Zedocef 100 (Antibiotic)) - 3.5ml twice daily
2. Xylometazoline Nasal Drops (Xylomist-P) - 2drops thrice a day
3. Montelukast Sodium & Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride Syp (Odimont-LC) - 3.5ml once in the night
4. Macbery Cough & Cold Syrup - 1.5ml  thrice a day

As a result of Adenoids, he is breathing through his mouth and snores a lot during the night. Also, he grinds his teeth a lot when he is sleeping.

Despite using the above medications, we've not found relief from his sufferings.

We are keen to find a permanent solution through Ayurveda.

We sincerely request you to provide us with a solution to bring relief to our son.


ANSWER: Dear Ramakrishna ji,

QUESTION: Hello Dr. Dehal,

Thank you for your prompt response. Please find below our observations as parents about our child.

Our son is a very active child and quite obedient. He does not have the habit of eating a lot junk food. In his early years, he did not have the problem of frequent cold. For the past 6-8 months, his cold & running nose never came under control. He was treated by our pediatrician. Each time he was given medication, the cold would subside and then recur within one week of completing the medication. On the pediatrician's suggestion, we got his X-Ray wherein he was diagnosed as suffering with Adenoids and referred to ENT specialist. The ENT specialist has advised the treatment. The ENT doctor has advised treatment for 1 year and if required, may have to undergo surgery after the child completes 5 years.

Despite following the treatment, we are unable to find improvement in his condition. Over that, the diet restrictions as told by the ENT doctor are too harsh for a 3.5 year old. Sweets, chocolates, ice-creams, all fruits are some of the things the doctor has strictly prohibited.

Given the anxiety that we are going through and the trouble our child is undergoing, we request you to kindly provide us with a permanant cure in Ayurveda and help us.

Please note that, our son has been given all the required vaccines as prescribed by Pediatrician till date.

Thanking you,
Ramakrishna Chary

Thanks for your details information.
Now we have two options.One is totally herbal treatment ,but this will be very slow and will take time to show the results.It may be little bitter.This will cost you around 1000-1500 per month.
Second option is Herbo-mineral which is fast acting but costly.Its quantity is less.This may cost you 3000-4000 per month.
If you want totally herbal then i will prescribe you and you have to purchase of good quality at your place.And if you want herbo-mineral that i have to prepare for you and will send you through courier.
Now let me know which option do you prefer.
