There are many botanical/herbal remedies that can be used alone or in formulas to locally assist the tonsils and adenoids in their immune function at the opening of the oral cavity and to tone these glands.
The acute infections are usually referred to as tonsillitis, the adenoids getting little recognition because they cannot be seen without special instruments.
According to the Mayo Clinic, some conditions that can trigger snoring, such as a cleft palate, enlarged adenoids, and a narrow throat have a genetic basis.
Hypertrophy, or enlargement, of the cells of the adenoids and tonsils can cause them to protrude into and obstruct the airway, which then leads to snoring.
Throat and nose problems, such as enlarged tonsils or adenoids, and obesity, nasal polyps, and allergies may all cause or contribute to snoring.
