The doctor said since I had viral tonsillitis they couldn't do anything for me. My grandpa's friend suggested that I try gargling a solution of hot salt water with a couple drops of iodine added to it. I did this twice about 12 hours apart. Within 36 hours my viral tonsillitis was cured.

Gargle with a glass of warm water, 2 teaspoons of salt and a pinch of turmeric for tonsillitis.
