Ayurveda/Enlarged Adenoids


QUESTION: My daughter is 5 now and she is breathing through the mouth because of enlarged adenoids. we tried giving the steroid sprays and it worked for sometime but doctor advised to go for surgical removal instead of continuing the sprays. 3 months back we had started on Septillin (1tsp 2 times a day)and it is one month since we stopped the steroid sprays. She does not fall sick now and didnt take any antibiotic for the last 3 months. But her breathing has not improved and adenoids have not shrunk. Also the nasal passage is inflamed that is making it more difficult to breathe. Please advice.

ANSWER: Dear Mam,

Greetings !

You choice is good for choosing Septilin. But this is not sufficient for her problem. We usually give them some more medicine like swarna and abhrak bhasma in very specific doses so that she can recover fast and simultaneously can boost her immunity.Where do you live so that i can prescribe you further combination.

QUESTION: Thanks for your quick response.
We live in New Jersey, USA but i can try and get the medicines from the nearby ayurveda shop or from anyone coming from India, so pl prescribe the other medicines that need to be taken to shrink the adenoids and reduce the nasal inflammation as it is so distressing to see my daughter spend sleepless nights because of the breathing issue.

Thanks a lot in advance.

I am really very sorry for the delay in answering as there was some casuality in my relatives.
These medicines are not available in US and even u can not simply buy it from the market and give it ur kid. These medicines has to be mixed in appropriate doses and then to be tritruated with some herbal juice and then to be dried and divided in small doses of milligrams. So do u know any ayurveda doctor in India who can do this for u.?
