Severly enlarged tonsils on 3 year old, HELP?
What can I do? I only found 34 entries when I searched for tonsils on all of curezone, is it really such a rare problem? Every since we had a bad flu a year and a half ago my daughter has snored, I looked in her mouth and it is no wonder! Her tonsils are so enlarged she barely has a small space for breathing. I don't want to do surgery, is there anything that can be done even after all this time? She eats very healthy, loves raw veggies and fruits. I give her cod liver oil and probiotics as well. We have a mini-tramp and she loves to bounce on it too, since the tonsils are part of the lymph it looks like it would have helped?
Do you think enlarged tonsils could contribute to her speech? She has talked since she was about 14 months old, lots of babbling and I really thought it would be more clear now that she has turned 3 but a lot of it still sounds like Japenese.
She's never been to a doctor, born at home, never vaxed, no medicine whatsoever so I cannot think of anything else that might have caused it. Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.
