I'm fully to blame for getting tonsillitis, I have a good immune system but when I have excessive sugar in take, my defences seem to suffer and thus I get ill. It's the same pattern for me every time without fail.
That's really interesting ..... I wonder what that means? did you ever ask your quack? I'd knock off the sugar if I were you, or, at the very least, cut it back dramatically. Your bod is trying to tell you something.
