    Tea with lemon juice and honey..hot tea.  Gargle with salt water. As it is a bacterial infection, the best way without taking antibiotics is to raise the body temperature by staying in the sauna or the hottest bath one can stand and stay there for ten minutes, preferably longer. You would know when your body temperature has raised because the water will not feel as hot, and you will sweat when you get into your bathrobe.

    If you face continuous problems with tonsillitis, you should consult your doctor to remove it. Then only you can avoid further health problems. Meanwhile you can follow the valuable tips given by  msorensson. I think you can also prefer ampicillin and paracetamol to get relief from this problem.
