My tonsil stones...

A white spot in the back of the throat.
A few years ago I began to notice a small white spot in the back of my throat (tonsil stones). At first I thought I was just getting a sore throat but I didn't really feel any pain. After some time the spot remained. I began to panic thinking it could be some form of throat or tonsil cancer. I wanted to know what the spot was so I asked both my physician and dentist. Since neither of them knew what tonsil stones looked like, I was told it was just some debris and I should gargle with a mouth rinse. I tried gargling but my tonsil stone remained.

It was getting annoying.
After several weeks the spot had grown and was becoming annoying, like there was a foreign object in my throat. I never experienced pain with my tonsil stones. It was just extremely annoying. I decided to try to scrape the sore from my throat with a toothbrush. This proved to be quite the task. I was successful in nothing but gagging myself for the next three days. I eventually gathered my nerve and stuck my finger into my throat successfully removing the debris (tonsil stone). I immediately checked the mirror to see if it was bleeding. Thankfully it was not. I noticed what looked like a hole where the tonsil stone was. The substance in my hand was a semi-hard white to off white ball. Now that it was gone along with the annoying foreign object feeling I was elated. This lasted for about three weeks until I noticed the annoying feeling again. I checked the mirror and saw another white spot (tonsil stone). I decided to consult an old friend, the internet for advice.

Researching the spot.
Online I found a diagram and explanation. The white spot was actually called a tonsillolith. , also referred to as a tonsil stone or a tonsil rock. The cause is not really known but the condition seems to be relatively harmless. Really the only negative impacts are the foreign object feeling and very bad breath (although I hadn't sniffed my tonsil stones apparently they smell very fowl). It is thought that the tonsil stones are formed by deposits of mucous and other particles which gather in the tonsils of people with deep tonsil pockets. Apparently I only have one deep tonsil pocket because I was getting tonsil stones on the left side of my throat each time.

How to Prevent Tonsil Stones
I have found only one successful prevention measure in preventing my tonsil stones. After some extensive internet searching I located a website belonging to Doctor Katz D.D.S. The site is dedicated to eliminating bad breath. Within the site there is a page that discusses tonsil stones and their prevention. Doctor Katz suggests a special spray and nasal drops. Though skeptical, I was desparate and ordered his solution. As more an more time passed I became more and more excited about his remedy. Since then I have not experienced a single reoccurrence of the tonsil stones! I located a coupon code for the tonsil stone remedy. Just enter "A-TNS30" when making your order and you'll get the tonsil stone prevention kit for free with any $30.00 order. The tonsil stone kit itself costs about $36.00. This way you can get it cheaper and get other products from the website for a lot less. Get his tonsil stone remedy here .

How to Remove Tonsilloliths
Prior to trying the Doctor Katz remedy for preventing tonsil stones, I did discover a much easier method for removing tonsil stones. I purchased a water pik and used it to flush the tonsil stone out. A water pik is a pressurized dental irrigator. It can be used to rinse food particles from between teeth and supposedly works better than flossing. To remove tonsil stones you'll need a water pik that is strong enough to power out the tonsil stone. The smaller water piks will not work. I bought a Con-aire Interplak Water Jet which does the job just fine. I wouldn't go with any smaller than this one though. The best price I've found on this irrigator is at Amazon.com ($39.99) click here for a direct link to it.

Tonsil Stones and Tonsilloliths Can Be Prevented Tonsil Stones (tonsilloliths) are caused by an accumulation of sulfur-producing bacteria and debris that become lodged in the tonsils. This debris (which can include mucous from post nasal drip) putrifies in the back of your throat, and collects in the tonsil crypts (small divots or pockets which appear on the surface of the tonsils).

When this debris combines with the Volatile Sulfur Compounds produced by the anaerobic bacteria beneath the surface of your tongue, along with the tonsil stones it can also create chronic Halitosis (and other stubborn bad breath and taste disorders).

 

Important: If you do not have your tonsils then you will NOT (except for rare exceptions) experience tonsil stones. However this does NOT mean that you should run out and get your tonsils removed.
 

As we get older, tonsilectomies become increasingly dangerous, but aside from that, even if you have your tonsils removed, you will most likely still have bad breath! Why is that?

You see, the sulfur producing bacteria breeding beneath the surface of your tongue (which are integral to the creation of those tonsil stones) are also the most likely candidates to cause bad breath!

So, even if you have your tonsils removed, unless you remove or hinder these anaerobic bacteria, your friends may still exhibit those tell-tale signs that YOU have bad breath! (ie pulling away, offering you gum, twitching at their nose, etc.)

And, since you can't have your tongue removed (at least not in the U.S.), there is a better idea: Fortunately, getting rid of tonsil stones is not that difficult...

A simple combination of AktivOxigen Tablets and Nasal Sinus Drops will effectively eliminate tonsil stones without unnecessary tonsil surgery. Plus, occasional use of a Oxygenating Spray will help to immediately neutralize the anaerobic sulfur-producing bacteria on contact.

Stop Tonsil Stones with This Effective Treatment Now keep in mind, as you know from reading my ebook (the Bad Breath Bible), if you truly want to prevent bad breath then you must use an oxygenating toothpaste and mouthwash and ideally a tongue scraper to effectively neutralize the anaerobic bacteria from the very back of the tongue.

When you use such an oxygenating toothpaste and mouthwash (like TheraBreath) you will experience a residual effect from the AktivOxigen/Nasal-Sinus Drops solution, and it will stop the tonsil stones from ever forming again.

From my clinical tests at the California Breath Clinics (office visits available in Los Angeles and San Francisco), we’ve found that most people following this formula have reported a significant reduction or complete elimination of tonsil stones.
