Tonsils are two cavities or modules whose function is to defend the body against toxic substances that are found in the blood. They are located internally on each side of the throat between the mouth and pharynx. Tonsillitis occurs when the tonsils are inflamed or irritated, due to an infection or because they fill with foreign substances.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "You should not torture your children suffering tonsillitis by pressing the tonsils or the palate with finger, but use Qust. (Narrated Anas bin Malik; Bukhari; Muslim)
Tonsilin is powder of herbs which controls the inflammation and acts as antiseptic against infection without any side effects. Dosage: ½ teaspoon thrice a day with honey.
