That is our motto when it comes to children. It continues to amaze me how many children get their tonsils removed today, in 2014, as if they are spare parts. Let it be known that there are no spare organs in our body. The tonsils play a major role in immune system function, and once removed, cause a significant decrease in your body's ability to fight off sickness and disease. Instead of removing them, get to the cause of why they are chronically becoming problematic which is a low level of function from chronic nervous system interference. If you have never had your child checked by a chiropractor be sure to schedule it soon. Chronic nervous system interference not only can cause tonsil problems, but also a wide range of other health problems. Get your child's spine checked, and save those tonsils!
