Angina at least once in a lifetime was ill, probably, everyone. Many are sure that they know almost everything about this banal disease. However, there are facts about which you had no idea before.
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.
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
