Essence Protocol of the Week: Tonsillitis...

This entire month of February, we will focus on lymphatic health and essence protocols that we have used that have made a difference in our lives and the lives of others. This week, we look at essences that support tonsillitis. Three of our favorites to recommend are Bergamot, Tea Tree, and Black Pepper.

Tonsillitis is most commonly caused by a viral infection, usually instigated by a bacteria infection like Streptococcus. Therefore, we have to match a virus or bacteria with a plant that addresses just that. Bergamot is an Italian citrus plant that is known to address tonsillitis, sore throat, cold, flu, and infections in the body. A 2006 study reported that Bergamot had strong effects against these strains of bacteria. She supports an uplifting, heart-opening, Loving energy of emotional gratitude and healing that brings the vibratory rate of the body to higher levels. Tea Tree is an anti-viral Australian aboriginal healing medicine known for her power against certain types of bacteria. She addresses the throat chakra, lymphatic circulation, immune boosting, and specifically ear-nose-throat infections and tonsillitis. Tea Tree is great for the thyroid gland and fights against both staph and strep throat infections. Energetically, she focuses on the Throat Chakra, speaking one's Truth, and having a healing voice, in addition to healing trauma and abuse. Black Pepper is also anti-viral, fighting against infections, cleaning the blood, healing tonsillitis, and supporting a healthy immune response. She helps to dispel negativity and banish darkness and all of the emotions connected to it. Altering our 3rd eye to see a higher and greater Truth, this medicine is for personal vision, empowerment, and self-worth. Together, these three plant teachers are empowering and supportive for the throat chakra, the tonsils, and the entire immune system.

It is best to use essences for one month for every year you have had the symptoms that are being treated. So, if you have experienced tonsil issues for 1 year, then anoint daily for 1 month for best results. Anoint onto the area of concern, or on the bottoms of the feet for best results. Addressing tonsillitis, you can anoint directly onto the Throat Chakra, and put a few drops of each into a cup with some water for a gargle wash to use three to five times a day. For the average adult weight and height, five to ten drops "neat" on the skin is enough to start anointing 2-3 times a day. Always do a test patch on the inner arm to make sure that the essences are not too powerful to anoint "neat". If they bring up a healing response, then use the bottoms of the feet to anoint, and meditate on what is coming up and out emotionally for healing.
