Tonsil Stones, Tonsilliths,
Tonsolilliths...White Stones, nasty, stinky little white crap, Stinky Gunk...whatever you
want to call them, I hate 'em!! I suffered with these stupid
things for years and now that I finally found out what they are, what causes them and how
to DESTROY them for good, I'm going to make sure I spread the cure to everybody and
anybody who will listen and wants it!
If you have Tonsil Stones, you know exactly
why I feel this way and I bet you feel the same way and would LOVE to destroy yours too!
If you have one or many of these discomforts, my good friend, it is likely you have Tonsil Stones...
Unpleasant mouth odor (I am talking about Seriously, stinky unpleasant mouth odor too!)
Coughing that does not appear to have a cause and won't go away completely.
A sore throat or slight ear aches, or a unusual pressure in your ears.
You are feeling like a little something is trapped at the back of your throat and will not come out.
The development of yellowish or white colored, little balls on the tonsils or back edges of your throat that KEEP returning.
Facts, General &
Interesting Tonsil Stones Information:
Tonsilloliths, or tonsil stones,
are small pieces of calcareous matter that develop in the crevasses of the tonsils. Learn
more about it here.
In some people young and old small, solid, calcareous lumps, which can be white-colored in
color, occur in the crevasses of the tonsils, also referred to as tonsillar crypts. These
lumps, generally known as tonsilloliths, or calculus of the tonsil, or tonsil stones, can
range in size from tiny little bits to pea sized ones and they have a tendency of staying
lodged in the area of the tonsils for some time, until they're dislodged finally. They
normally are accompanied by a foul smell coming from from the tonsils, and a person
afflicted with tonsilloliths goes through an actual sensation of something being lodged in
the back part of the throat.
Usual solutions and practices for cleaning
out tonsil stones:
One way is to use a steril but long object that
reaches to the back of the throat (I give a list of all the safe ones to use in my video).
You would need to push the stone out from beneath. Using this method works easier if the
stone is older and harder. Additionally you can use tweezers to pluck the stone out. The
use of pulsating irrigation to clear out the crypts of built up debris may also help
(using an adjustable unit at a low pressure setting or a needleless Monoject syringe to
avoid damaging tissue.) Alternately medicine droppers (especially one with a curved tip)
are used to suck out the smaller sized stones. Using such a medicine dropper to first
irrigate the area with saline which may help to bring the tonsil stone to the surface from
which it can then be more easily sucked out with the dropper. To relieve gagging people at
times think about using everyday things, such as toothpicks, as small tools rather then
using a larger finger. This is not advisable due to the danger of the short light
toothpick/object being released and breathed into the throat. Use guardedness when
attempting any of the methods as listed above. The tonsils and throat are incredibly
sensitive, and can be hurt or agitated very easily.
It's very important that you use caution when
trying to remove tonsil stones yourself! Gargling with liquids, for the most part is safe
and will gently remove them. However, sticking any type of foreign object into your mouth
(around your tonsils) can actually have some dangerous side effects. The tonsil tissue is
very sensitive. How do I know this? Because I experienced it first hand. I had become so
tired of feeling the tonsil stones that I decided to take a tooth brush one morning and
dig them out. It was not as easy as I thought, so I continued to dig and poke. I didn't
even get them all out but what happened over the next couple of days was bad. I had
actually cut the tissue when I was digging and the remaining debris, along with other
bacteria in my mouth caused an extreme infection!
The damage was so bad, I could barely swallow
due to the pain. I had to go to my doctor and was given a high dose of antibiotic via
shot, then put on 2 oral antibiotics of 2 week doses. After 1 week, the pain had eased off
a little. I still had huge white sores all around my tonsil tissue and had to use numbing
spray just to be able to eat/swallow my food. In total, it took about 3 weeks for my
throat to finally heal up. You have to consider any objects you're sticking in your mouth
are probably not steril, plus the fact that when you have any new open sores in your
mouth, they can be easily invaded by all the bacteria and germs in your mouth.
If you insist on trying to remove them with some
type of foreign object, just be very careful so you don't cause more harm than good.
The first time I ever had tonsil-stones, I coughed up some weird looking lumps that were off white in color. The only real facts I knew about them at the time was that they were terrible smelling, and this fact came to light when I squished them between my fingers. I also had no clue as to where they came from.
They would come and go, appear and disappear at all the worst times you could think of. My first trip to my doctor to actually ask him about them got me a vague answer about some sort of throat infection and a dose of antibiotics which didn't get rid of squat! I swear I made 5 different visits and was put on three different prescriptions none of which did a bit of good.
If you want to know how I did it, just put in your name
and email and I'll show you the tonsil stones removal & cure video I made & link of the site I found and used.
