The adenoid, also known as a pharyngeal tonsil or nasopharyngeal tonsil, is the superior-most of the tonsils. It is a mass of lymphatic tissue situated posterior to the nasal cavity, in the roof of the nasopharynx, where the nose blends into the throat. Normally, in children, it forms a soft mound in the roof and posterior wall of the nasopharynx, just above and behind the uvula.
The adenoids along with the tonsils are a part of lymphatic system that clears away infection and keeps body fluids in balance. These adenoids& tonsils work by trapping germs coming in through mouth& nose. These adenoids become swollen/ enlarged when they are trying to fight off an infection and make it hard to breathe through nose thus resulting in oral breathing. This cause a dry mouth with bad breathe, cracked lips, running nose, snoring, sleep apnea further also causing ear infections.
The routine allopathic treatment for adenoids enlargement in children is to remove them surgically. As the allopathic system of medicine does not have any other medical treatment to offer, they advise to get the swollen or enlarged adenoids permanently removed.

It is an integral part of the child’s immune system.
