Day 46: Tonsils
The Link Between Tonsils, Spleen, and Chronic Fatigue; Your Face Never Lies
Welcome to Day 46!
Congratulations! You are half-way through the Juice Feasting Program! As a seasoned Feaster, I am proud of you for relying on your strength, wisdom, and love to do one of the best things you have ever done for yourself at this important juncture of your life. If you are Juice Feasting at this point, what you can know during this portion of the Juice Feast your body is going to transform health challenges created much earlier in your life. Remember Hering’s Law of Cure:
We heal from the top down, from the inside out, and in the reverse order in which we took on our health challenges.
Your entire being has a limitless healing capacity which is growing ever more apparent as you improve yourself each day through the nutrient dense juices you are accessing, the activities you are introducing, and the valuable information you are absorbing.
Many children and young adults have their tonsils needlessly taken out each year. The medical establishment will tell you that there is no great concern with taking the tonsils out–but this is not true. For one, there is a non-identification with the cause of the problem, and a surgical remedy to somehow fix the symptomology. Number two is the subliminal indoctrination into the mentality that there are certain body organs which are not that important.
As you will see near the top of the file, tonsils are linked with the spleen, and poor spleen health gives way to chronic fatigue. Therefore, taking out the tonsils leads to chronic fatigue, and this knowledge is evidenced by historical evidence and studies.
An excellent description of the tonsils’ important role is related in the 1923 book, Immunity in health; the function of the tonsils and other subepithelial lymphatic glands in the bodily economy by Kenelm Hutchinson Digby:
“Tonsils, Adenoids, and the Appendix are still commonly regarded as useless, even dangerous, relics of a past usefulness (Schafer, 1912). But the investigations recorded in the following pages point in quite another direction, and appear to support the view that these structures should be grouped together into one class of “Subepithelial Lymphatic Glands”; that they constitute important antibacterial weapons and share a great and valuable function in the preservation of health. Evidence will be adduced to show that these subepithelial lymphatic glands are not so much local defenses to strengthen weak spots as organs for the development of general systemic immunity.”
Another example: In the year 1952, England imported from Italy many hundreds of mine workers. Why? Because some 60% of the British youth were without tonsils and consequently constantly too tired for this kind of work. Italy, having the lowest percentage in Europe of tonsillectomies, had men who were virile and vigorous. Thirty years of study in Italy proved that, sooner or later, tonsillectomies reduced vigor and vitality in its victims.
The two Calderoli brothers spent 30 years in deep research on the subject, and this is a long enough time to arrive at many undeniable conclusions. Their conclusions resulted from innumerable studies of victims of tonsillectomies. These studies revealed that young women who were formerly normal in their affection and attraction for young men gradually had their feelings reversed, no longer wanting to have anything to do with them. Wives, who at one time were a closely knit, loving, and attentive member of their family, carefully solicitous of their their social contacts and experienced unbearable fatigue. With thirty years of consistent proof of this state of affairs, it is evident to me that my own experiences with people simply followed this natural pattern.
Businessmen whose tonsils were afflicted and removed in their adulthood became lax in business, lost interest in children, husband and other family members found themselves easily annoyed and paying little or no attention to their needs and habits. Household duties were neglected. What remained was far less priority for these duties and organizational concerns of the home.
The takeaway today? Tonsils are important. Don’t take them out of kids. If yours are removed, remember the effects and do what you can to support your lymphatic and immune systems!!!

Tonsillectomies cause kids to gain excess weight by S.L. Baker
When kids complain of sore throats and their tonsils appear infected, the condition known as tonsillitis, doctors are often quick to urge the surgical removal of these clumps of lymphatic tissue found on both sides of the throat. Tonsils are also cut out when babies and young children are found to have enlarged tonsils that are sometimes linked to heavy or raspy breathing, especially at night. In fact, tonsillectomy is the most common major surgery performed on children and it’s a huge money-maker for mainstream medicine.
Children who have their tonsil surgically removed early in life are significantly more likely to become overweight or obese by age eight, according to a study conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands, and published in the journal Pediatrics.
A surgical solution for minor tonsil and adenoid problems is not better than simple TLC and waiting, according to a team of Dutch researchers. A study of 300 patients found there was little difference in reduction of symptoms between the 150 children who had tonsillectomies and those that did not. In fact, during the 18 months following the procedures, there was no difference in the groups.
Experts say this research backs the trend of declining tonsillectomies in the United States, which dropped from more than 1 million annually in the 1970s to 250,000 that are now performed each year.
