Fact 1

Mod­ern doc­tors call angi­na an acute infec­tious dis­ease that caus­es inflam­ma­tion of the pala­tine ton­sils. But in ancient times (XI-XVII cen­turies), the same con­cept denot­ed heart dis­ease, now known as angi­na pec­toris. What is the con­nec­tion? The fact is that the word “angi­na” comes from the Latin ango, which means “to squeeze, choke.” They denot­ed painful con­di­tions char­ac­ter­ized by pre­cise­ly such suf­fo­ca­tion. With angi­na, the throat is com­pressed, with angi­na pec­toris, a spasm of the coro­nary ves­sels occurs, which entails a feel­ing of squeez­ing in the chest.

Fact 2

Angi­na is dan­ger­ous with com­pli­ca­tions that it can cause. This was known to the ancient heal­ers. So, the symp­toms, treat­ment and pos­si­ble con­se­quences of angi­na for the whole organ­ism are described in the writ­ings of Hip­pocrates (IV‑V cen­turies BC), Cel­sus (I cen­tu­ry AD). And in the man­u­scripts of Abu Ali Ibn Sina (Avi­cen­na, XI cen­tu­ry), intu­ba­tion and tra­cheoto­my are men­tioned in case of asphyx­ia due to ton­sil­li­tis.

Fact 3

If you do not take the nec­es­sary mea­sures to treat acute res­pi­ra­to­ry viral infec­tions or influen­za in the ear­ly stages of the dis­ease, do not take emer­gency pre­ven­tive mea­sures, then in 30% of cas­es a banal cold pass­es into the stage of a com­pli­cat­ed course, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly increas­es the risk of a sore throat.

Fact 4

Few peo­ple know that the famous blue Via­gra pills were orig­i­nal­ly cre­at­ed as a cure for angi­na (angi­na pec­toris). Their mirac­u­lous side effect, which delight­ed men all over the world, was dis­cov­ered lat­er in 1992 in a small town in Eng­land.

Fact 5

  1. In the treat­ment of ton­sil­li­tis and chron­ic ton­sil­li­tis, antibi­otics are not always need­ed. You can cope with the dis­ease with the help of nat­ur­al reme­dies. For exam­ple, for more than 80 years, with ton­sil­li­tis and chron­ic ton­sil­li­tis, ton­sils have been helped by Ton­silotren, a Ger­man nat­ur­al drug. It relieves inflam­ma­tion and restores the pro­tec­tive func­tion of the ton­sils, reduces the vol­ume of enlarged ton­sils, helps cleanse the lacu­nae of the ton­sils from plugs and liq­uid pus, relieves inflam­ma­tion of the lymph nodes, nor­mal­izes the immu­ni­ty of the whole organ­ism as a whole and pre­vents repeat­ed ton­sil­li­tis. Ton­silotren dur­ing 2 pro­phy­lac­tic cours­es sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces the fre­quen­cy of angi­na by 1.8 times, the fre­quen­cy of acute res­pi­ra­to­ry viral infec­tions by 2.7 times¹. The effec­tive­ness and good tol­er­a­bil­i­ty of Ton­silotren have been con­firmed by numer­ous clin­i­cal stud­ies.
