Otorhinolaryngology is the branch of medicine and surgery that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the ears, nose and throat (ENT), as well as head and neck disorders. People are very susceptible to a wide range of ailments that can produce symptoms affecting the ears, nose and throat separately or together.
Respiratory problems are extremely common in general practice, accounting for almost 30% of consultations. Of these about half are due to upper respiratory and throat infections. Homeopathic medicines when judiciously selected to cover the patient’s pattern of symptoms will often shorten the course of the problem or even nip it in the bud. In addition, more chronic problems affecting the ears and nose such as perennial rhinitis, nasal polyps, and some cases of tinnitus will often respond very well to homeopathic intervention.
