Leading The Natural Health Revolution

I began the detox and on the 2nd day, I woke up with a sore right tonsil.  I didn't think much about it because it didn't hurt that bad but as the day progressed it got worse.  It became impossible to talk, eat, drink without being in a LOT of pain and then my gland began to swell and hurt.  I usually get sick when I begin a cleanse but it's a stuffy head, not the feeling that my tonsil is about to explode.  This is very RARE for me to have tonsil issues.  I don't know for sure if it is tonsillitis but all my symptoms (fever, pain, swollen gland and tonsil, nausea, puss on tonsil) point to it; I am going to the doctor tomorrow. Needless to say, I stopped this cleanse since I was desperate to do anything to stop the pain like eat warm soup or a popsicle.

I think it is important to mention that even though I was only on this cleanse for 1 1/2-2 days, I didn't have any unusual bowel movements-which makes me think that the toxins were stirred up but didn't come out so settled in my tonsil which is one of the organs responsible for ridding the body of toxins....I dunno.  Just a theory.

Hi Brandi,

Great identification of the accumulated toxins - I think this is exactly what was happening for you. Sore throats and raised glands are really normal during the detox process - but are a sign that your body is struggling to get rid of the toxins on its own.

Detoxing is like stirring up the gunge from the bottom of the ocean that may have been sitting dormant for years...the more gunge we have build up, the gentler we have to be on ourselves - otherwise it's just too much for our bodies to handle in one big hit.

Assisting the detox process by drinking LOTS (seriously!) of water and some kind of help down the other end (enemas, colonics, gravity colonics) are advisable to assist your liver in 'letting go' of the toxins - you definitely don't want that stuff circulating through your body. Gentle exercise to keep your circulation moving - walking or jumping on a rebounder also also great ways to stimulate your lymph system and 'release' as many toxins as possible. Get lots of sleep. Take lots of baths. Drink herbal tea. BE KIND TO YOURSELF.

I hope this helps out...

Hi, good to see this post. I got tonsillitis too, even though I'm not on detox now. Doctor prescribed me antibiotics of course, but I didn't buy it yet. I'm trying to figure out some alternative way to cure it. Any suggestions? I will just add, that I had purulent tonsillitis just a two months ago and this is probably the same.  

Hi Marlen, 

Antibiotics are almost always prescribed as the only thing you can do, there are alternatives that provide relief and you need to build up your immune system to fight off future attacks. 

The best immune boosters are echinacea, garlic, sage, vitamin C and zinc! 

Make sure you are including friendly bacteria in your diet through food (raw milk, raw cheese, fermented foods, kefir) and supplements. This will keep your immune system healthy. If you do decided to use the antibiotics make sure you double up with a probiotic supplement!

For relief try Elderberry extract or syrup.

Have a read of these articles - they go into more detail:

Thank you very much for quick reply and advices! Yesterday I was taking large doses of vitamin C and today I don't feel much pain in my throat. Hopefully, I will get well soon.  Thanks for help :) 

 hi i was really interested to hear that you got tonsillitis from your detox,  i also had something very similiar, i actually had my tonsils out when i was about 5 years old, but they didnt do it properly, so do you think it would be the same type of toxin build up for me also????????????????  i have just been having manuka honey and that seems to soothe the pain.  it was really hard to continue the detox through the pain.

 

Hi

 

i also had those same type of symptons, but i had my tonsils taken out when i was 5 years old, even though they werent taken out properly, (apparently he botched it up)  so would your advice for Marlin be the same for me?
