Diary: Your culprit is dairy. You only need milk up to age 3. Since you experience tonsil issues after that age, it is a sign that your body telling you that it no longer need dairy. This include cheese, poultry and eggs. Stay away from them for 90 days and you will notice the difference. Write back after 90 days.
