White Bumps In Throat Page 23 of 89
Funny thing but mine seem to come out early in the morning hours when I am still asleep. Does anyone else experience this?

I've got a question for anyone who has had their tonsils removed to solve this problem...has it actually worked for good or have the stones re-appeared after time?
gracie1 last decade
Which brings me to a question that I wanted to ask everyone, what the approx. size of your tonsils themselves?
The reason Im asking Is that I look at mine and they seem barely visible infront of the tonsil canal flap..And they both are barely bigger than an pencil erasure themeselves. And they seem to stay that way.
With all I have read in here im also assuming thats a good thing, the less size of them, the less size of the crypts= less chance of stones.
Which also brings me back to a fundamental question that I think anyone with enlarged tonsils should be asking their doctors, is WHY are they enlarged in the first place?
I can only think your body has a secondary infection or virus somewhere that is causing the tonsils to be enlarged in the first place, since the tonsils are reacting attempting to remove it, and the stones are a PRODUCT of the enlarged tonsils/crypts vs the CAUSE. (in most cases)
This doesnt mean that a stone couldnt also cause the tonsil to react as it builds up and creates bacteria that the tonsil has to fight from within as well.
So then it gets back to lifestyle, food intake, and immunity response of your bodies. I would think the first place to boost your immune system would be to start is taking FRESH SQUEEZED Juices either Veggie and or Fruit everyday and if you smoke and drink heavily, STOP.
And I will say it one more time. STOP STOP THE MILE, and all dairy if need be.. even for awhile to see if they lessen.
Either make or BUY fresh squeeze OJ (NON pasturized) Dont get concentrated stuff its cooked and basically dead. Also flash pasturization (light) method kills a lot of the good bacteria you need along with the bad.. Flash uses Ultra Violet light to kill bacteria. Remember FRESH SQueezed is the way to go. Organic is better if you can find it. Yes fresh is $$$$ but its worth it. Concentrated OJ is basically worthless (cooked)
I challenge anyone with enlarged tonsils to go on a regimine of fresh SQUEEZED OJ EVERY morning and throughout the day, for a few weeks. Not only will start to feel great, I bet your tonsils will react as well.
I often will take a LEMON and squeeze about a shot glass worth of LEMON juice into OJ for a little mor ZING..
If you are lazy, and you're out in California Go to Jamba Juice (not sure if they are nation wide) and get "Orange Berry Blitz" with shot of FRESH Lemon Juice.. And they also have IMMUNITY Boost you can get in them as well Its VERY tasty and about 4$ ea for a LARGE!
There are many varieties of juices there, I like this one the best. Either way get some OJ in you and Lemon juice and get immunity boost.
Unleaded: your method works since you are stretching that area of the mouth, in and around the tonsils when you chew, this is similar to how you chew gum to equalize pressure in your ears when flying.. (see how they are related to the tonsils?)
Gracie: I would opt for Having them LAZERED first to see if you can close the holes BEFORE removing them. If it doesnt work THEN go get them out. But only as a last resort. I would try shrinking them with DIET first Again getting rid of the problem CAUSING Them to be enlarged FIRST.
Jennifer21: You sound like you have SERIOUS issues if your tonsils are that big that they touch, you need to get them DOWN immediately, somehow, Of course I recommend homeopathic ways first (diets, suppliments) and but am not against antiboitics if thats what it takes. I would ask you what other problems your having in your body that you notice? Bottom line is you need to find out WHY they are enlarged first get them down, Then the stones will take care of themselves if you watch what you eat and use mouthwash etc etc.
Also and update on my water PIK I found the cordless water pik seems too powrful to flush the tonsils and canals out regularily.. So I guess that tongue cleaner is the way to go for this..
So now, I will probably get one of those ear wax removal kits with the Blue squeezable ball/tip to use that to flush them out. (think it comes with the Maurine ear wax removal kits found in pharmacy stores)
Again I get stones rarely but have had them, (when I was eating dairy) But since I cutout most dairy and cottage cheeze have had zero if any larger ones. What bothers me really is the ear canals and euastation tubes that drain into the canals and flap infront of the tonsils. I always seem to have pressure in my ear canals and must costantly keep the tubes and tonsil canal clear of fluids. Stones would only aggrivate this issue more.

i totally agree that tonsil stones affect ur life, trust me it has affected my life, im now programmed after 12years that ive always, everyday, have bad breath even though i clean my teeth imaculately and clean my tonsils out. its something that stays with u. they're small but they impact our lives considerably.i still have them, but i watch what i eat , like diary foods. they accelerate them.
my mum had em bad in her 30's, she had her tonsils out and she doesnt have them anymore. go and get them out. u deserve to feel good about urself. goodluck.

gracie1... Read back. There are people that have had Giant Tonsil Stones that don't even have tonsils. I think there is even a link posted. I think once you have what ever the microbe is that causes these in your system, you are likely to keep getting the stones.
georgiagirl...I think anytime my immune system is lowered the tonsil stone production increases. This includes exposing myself to cigarette smoke or household dust that I'm allergic to...all the way up to just not getting enough sleep.

Peritonsillolith - another new name to search
Interested in crypt formation? Read starting with 'Embryology' - yep, we have them before we are born
Think you have tonsil problems?
Did you all realize we have four different kinds of tonsils - Waldeyer's Ring - and there are crypts in all four kinds of tonsils?
'tonsillar crypts: crypts associated with any of the four types of tonsils in the throat (lingual, palatine, pharyngeal, and tubal).'
I think we often think we are talking about the same thing on this forum when really we aren't.
Take tonsil cleaning for instance... When I clean out my tonsils I clean inside the actual crypts. From reading what others write about quick formation and wiping them away with q-tips or getting rid of them by snorting...I think maybe they are clearing out the tonsil stones between the tonsiliar pilliars that the tonsils have already kicked out. I never actually see my stones anymore until I see them going down the drain.
I always made the assumption that everyone else's tonsil stones grew in their palatine tonsils also, for those of you that experience more of the ear pain, this may not be the case. If only for this reason alone, I think we need to keep looking for NEW permanent solutions to the problem.
Changing the pH of the mouth by irrigating with vinegar, Listerine, CO2, H2O2, acidic juices, etc., while it does offer some temporary relief maybe, it does not seem to be a permanent cure and can kill off the good bacteria we need to help us stay healthy.
I'm very interesting in the results of those of you irrigating with the honey solution! I'm curious if anyone tried the sulfur or epsom salt recommended to us by many homeopathic practioners.
Good Luck All!

I have tolerated these things almost all my life, they are a part of me and I too have been able to prevent a sore throat. how do I know, I ignored the feeling in my throat on several occations ass trying to dismiss the connection and would soon have a flu or cold symptoms.
I get bronchitis easily as have had pneumonia in the past. But If I do not allow myself to become 'wear worn down in my energy.' I can usually stay healthy all year.
I spend hours upon hours in the pool, I can tell if the PH inn the pool is off and am curious about the ph of my body as well. the amount of chemicals my body has absorbed over the years is a puzzelment, I am probably 60% chlorine LOL
I do also agree, there are variables and exceptions to all this and that we and the dr. have not tapped into the functions of the tonsils, becasue I too can not beleive that God would place tonsils in our body for us for only when we are little. There is much to learn and I hope we in all our theories, opinions, experiences, frustrations and ideas can assit a great researcher the raw data and resources to start to discover what could be a break through for us all.
bless you all, and these things are not really all that BAD!

My goal in this forum is to find a way to get rid of them. PERMANTLY. If you are happy with then then 'yeah for you'.
I do think that was a much better discription - the pearl in oyster - than the one i gave way back when. Nice.

Tonsils definately contain lymphocytes. And some lymphocytes are THOUGHT to kill tumor cells. But please cite your source for "If you read a lot about tonsil stones, they have even been found to contain malignant cancerous material in addition to bacteria." Because in all of my reading I have not read that from a credible source. I've not even come to a concrete conclusion about the content of the stones. I'm convinced there may be more than the two types.
Thanks in advance.

I used to get them alot. I originally thought they were related to food (rice, oatmeal, etc.), but the one time I asked a doctor, she said it was caused by post-nasal drip. Ever since I started taking a Costco-brand generic for Claritin allergy medicine, I almost never get them.
I'm guessing that different things trigger the same reaction, the way different allergens trigger the same allergic response of sneezing or a rash. Early on I broke one open and saw what I figured was the grain-of-sand-causing-the-pearl inside. So maybe for some people it is STARTED by a food particle, while for others it's snot, or smoke inhalation, or whatever, and then the tonsils just do their best to coat the irritant, thereby making it easier for the body to get rid of it.

I do wish to add a couple of things to the discussion for what it's worth.
Nomostinkbomb, IMHO, is really getting closer to the grail. Im replacing the usual milk/hot chocolate drink at i have at night with a green tea instead the state of oral condition in the morning improves beyond belief.
Also - Last week I had a wisdom tooth repaired which lost it's filling a year ago. There has definitely been a marked reduction in tonsil goop and the young stones since which hide deep. I've no doubt it was losing this filling and letting decay set in,thus bacteria levels rise, which led to me getting stones about 6 months ago.
Even before the tooth got fixed i wrote in to say i found by clearing the bacteria laden goop from tonsils before the stincky breath taste and stones set in is nipping this in the bud. It was so effective for me the stress level of this problem disappeared the minute i'd worked out how to clear the goop. (see my earlier description - i'll keep pushing this because i know others if not all could benefit by doing it).
Lastly - i'm too convinced these tonsils should be left to do their job. Not ripped out because our Docs have no clue.
I remember getting a small white stone forming on the outside of the tonsil, not in a crypt. When i removed it I noticed a new divot in surface of tonsil ie: like a new crypt forming. It disappeared within hours of the stone coming out.
That fact, the great job tonsils do in collecting mouth goop, and the easing of stone goop following repair of my decayed tooth suggests to me our tonsils are needed by our bods.
Next i'm going to get into drinking heaps more water each day.
