||Diet Therapy for Tonsillitis
To begin with, the patient should fast for three to five days,
by which time the serious symptoms should subside. Nothing
but water and orange juice should be taken during this time.
After the acute symptoms of tonsillitis are over, the patient
should adopt an all-fruit diet for the next three or four days.
Thereafter he may gradually embark upon a well-balanced
diet, with emphasis on seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables, and
fruits. The patient should avoid spices and condiments as
they tend to irritate the throat Sour substances like curds,
buttermilk, and fried foods should also be avoided.
