Tonsils and Me

I have a very interesting relationship with Tonsils. Every now and then i feel like i am getting a throat catch, and the next morning i wake up with one. Yesterday after lunch i had a feeling that i am going to get Tonsils. I was feeling quite drowsy as well. Today morning when i got up, there it was lurking in my throat. Salt water gargle does’nt really help. I am loathe to taking allopathic tablets, and avoid it whenever i can. My tonsils typically go away in 3 days. Thats as much time a tablet takes to cure anybody’s tonsils. So why take tablets ?

Are there any good cure for these tonsils that people know of ? What do you do when you have Tonsils ?

yeah the first thing to do would be to get a throat culture. I had got mine done somewhere in Jayanagar.
