Adenoids are growths of gland-like tissue in the upper part of the throat, behind the nose. They can swell up and obstruct breathing and speaking, resulting in a condition known as adenopathy.
Silica is effective for treating swollen adenoids. Sources include plants with strong stems and leaves, notably horsetail, which can be made into herbal tea. Other sources:
– the peel of fruit
– the husks of grains
– onions, garlic, shallots
