hey guys,

just for the sake of interest, here's another link with a picture of tonsil stones. in the captions, the tonsil stone is called a 'bacterial plug'.

We should be greatful for this site, much info here to cure us from these stink bombs. I had gotten these things every once in a while and when I came across this site I used the 2 finger in mouth technique and I got about 8 of these stinkers to come out. Its been 3 weeks since I had them out and I use the same technique every other day. I am also on Xylitol as of last week and my breath is fine, and I no longer get that taste in my mouth. Oh yeah I also stopped with the dairy products, no milk, cheese, cakes. Strictly yogurt. My right tonsil has shrunken down and the left one is full of crypts but has not shrunk yet. Hope this helps.

I like many am so happy I found this site. I have been dealing with tonsil stones for quite some time. I have been dating my boyfriend for several years and am very comfortable with him and told him about my issue although I seldom kiss him as I am self concious about my breath. I also find myself talking out of the sie of my mouth in an effort not to direct my breath in a persons nasal range b/c am afraid my breath may be offensive. As nervous as I am I aleady called my doctor and am awaiting a return a call I feel I will pursue having my tonsils removed in an effort to gain my self confidence back! In addition, I have also been having an underarm odor issue of the past 3 years only once & a while in the summertime and when nervous or excersising although am not sweating!? I am thinking more & more that this may be connected to the tonsil stones and am hoping this too will subside after having my tonsils removed.

Sorry to those who recommend homeopathic treatment instead but tonsillectomy competely solved this problem for me. If one is content with treating an annoying condition daily rather than eliminating it, then maybe homeopathy is right for them. Of course, tonsillectomy doesn't work for everyone and any surgey is dangerous. But the surgery has improved over the years and should not be dismissed, as it can be the best plan for those with chronic tonsillitis. To me, there is no better permanent remedy than getting rid of the crypts that hold these things.
 
slpath last decade
^ AMEN! i feel exactly the same way. getting the surgery was SOOOOO Worth it and i wish i would have done it years ago.
 
tim618 last decade
I agree that getting the sugery is a very effective remedy for this problem, in much the same way as it is very effective to remove a wart with a stick of dynamite. If you place a stick of lit dynamite on a wart I can say with 100 percent certainty that the wart will be completely eradicated. It undoubtedly works for this problem but what does it do in the long run? The tonsils belong to the immune system, your immune system is responsible for fighting foreign invaders, if you weaken it, it can't protect you as well.

It is a simple case of short term gratification versus long term results. If you don't have the patience to try a slower process by all means get your tonsils removed, it will work for this problem, and it is a quick process (the actual procedure is, that is). Every decision you make has consequences. Each has his or her own path to walk and let nobody tell you what to do, if it feels right to have the surgery, do it. I am an advocate of free will, listen to my advice if you will, but follow it only if you truly want to. If you came to this board looking for a naturopathic, homeopathic, or non-allopathic in general remdey and in the end you decide to have a tonsilectomy, then coming here was still a great service to you and we should all feel good about this board in that it is we are all offering a great service to each other by participating.

excerpts::

Xylitol is not only a safe, natural sweetener without the bad side-effects of sugar and artificial substitutes, it's also good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, and promotes good health.


Xylitol And Ear, Nose & Throat Infections

Recurring middle-ear infections pose a great health threat to children. Tubes are often inserted into the eardrum in children with these recurring infections to reduce the fluid that is attempting to wash out the infection from the middle ear. Whil this procedure sometimes helps to reduce the frequency of infections, it is also designed to help with hearing.

Language, a critical part of learning, is built by auditory input during the first two years of life-the same period when ear infections are most common. If this input is dampened by infection or fluid in the middle ear during this important period, it can cause learning problems.

One researcher demonstrated that, even when properly treated, recurrent middle ear infections during the first two years result in significant impairment in reading ability up to the age of nine.7 Another study followed children longer and showed significant learning and social problems extending up to age eighteen.8

One of xylitol's versatile benefits is its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause middle-ear infections in young children. In two recent studies involving over 1,000 children, xylitolflavored chewing gum was found to reduce the incidence of middle-ear infections by 40%, significantly decreasing ongoing middle-ear complications and the need for antibiotics.

Regularly washing the nose with a spray containing xylitol decreases the number of harmful bacteria and stimulates normal defensive washing of this area. A clean nose reduces problems with allergies and asthma that originate from nasal irritants and pollutants.

Current research shows how bacteria attach to cells in the body, causing infection. Some sugars like xylitol are known to be able to interfere with this binding, blocking the attachment of the major infection-causing bacteria that live in the nose. Dr. Lon Jones, a physician in Plainsview, Texas, reported that the use of a xylitol nasal spray in his practice prevented 93% of ear infections and resulted in comparable reductions in sinus infections, allergies, and asthma.9

Xylitol has been shown to be effective in inhibiting Candida Albicans, a serious systemic yeast problem, and other harmful gut bacteria including H. Pylori, implicated in periodontal disease, bad breath, gastric and duodenal ulcers, and even stomach cancer.


The Safer Sweetener

Increased sugar consumption has bedeviled Western cultures with more and more health problems, many of which are putting an enormous strain on healthcare systems. Finally, there is an answer to our collective prayers for something truly healthy that can also satisfy our sweet tooth. Over 1,500 scientific studies have found that the more you use xylitol, the more you can eliminate sugar cravings, reduce insulin levels, and alkalinize your body. It's a great aid on the way to good health and long life.

Imagine never having to feel those twinges of guilt when you bite into a xylitol-sweetened brownie. Or how about increasing your bone density while enjoying your favorite hot drink with two spoonfuls of xylitol crystals, or knowing that xylitol-sweetened chewing gum is preventing cavities and gum disease?

With xylitol, you can now have your sweet tooth and treat it, too!

Xylitol—An Amazing Discovery for Health

A healthy, natural sweetener

Pure Xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables and produced in small amounts by the human body. For commercial use, it is manufactured from xylan hemicellulose sources such as Birch trees, cane bagasse and corn cobs/stalks. It is the sweetest of the polyols with the same sweetness as sugar (sucrose) but with 40% fewer calories and none of the negative tooth decay or insulin release effects of sugar.

Classified on labels as a carbohydrate, Xylitol has been used in foods since the 1960's and is approved in the U.S. as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes and is safe for use by those with diabetes or hypoglycemia.

Over 25 years of testing clinical testing confirms that Xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. Its use has been shown to reduce instances of tooth decay by up to 80%. Sugarfree chewing gums and candies made with this sweetener have already received official endorsements from six national dental associations.

Health Benefits:
1. Xylitol is one of bacteria's natural enemies. When certain harmful bacteria enter the body, they attach to the membranes of the nose and throat. They begin to culture and grow, causing infection and sickness.

When exposed to Xylitol (specifically Strep pneumo and H Flu), these harmful bacteria lose their ability to adhere to infected membranes and are not able to grow. Unlike most antibiotics, which kill the majority of bacteria and leave the resistant 'super bacteria' behind, Xylitol merely flushes harmful bacteria away.

2. Significant dental benefits. These benefits have been confirmed in numerous field studies conducted throughout the world and has lead to official endorsements by the dental association in Finland, Norway, Sweden, England, Ireland, Estonia and the Netherlands of products containing high levels of this sweetener.

Xylitol has been clinically proven to:

* Fight and lessen the occurrence of Inner Ear and Sinus Infection
* Fight and Reduce Plaque
* Fight Cavities
* Reduces the secretion of Plaque Acids
* Facilitate the Remineralization of Tooth Enamel

Xylitol is also:
Recommended by Dentists, Medical Doctors, Periodontists, Pediatricians and many health organizations and health professionals worldwide.

Recommended as a sweetener for diabetics and people with hypoglycemia. It has a LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX (7) and has little effect on blood sugar levels.

Recommended as a natural replacement for fluoride. Clinical studies show that Xylitol helps reduce cavities up to 80%. It reduces plaque and allows fluoride to more easily penetrate teeth.

Xylitol-laced gum (mints, nasal spray) is an excellent tool for knocking out infections that start in the mouth and throat.

http://www.vrp.com/art/673.asp?c=1155358041078&k=/det/9312.a....

Early in the last century, pioneers in the area of health and longevity almost universally agreed that sugar was the bane of our existence, and that it needed to be totally eliminated from the diet. Despite early warnings, US sugar consumption has steadily increased. The USDA statistics show consumption of sugar to be about 20 teaspoons per person per-day, and thats only what is added to food and drink — not the sugar occurring naturally in food. Sucrose (table sugar) remained the sugar of choice even after the introduction of artificial sweeteners. (1)

With the discovery of the life-extending potential that optimally low levels of insulin can have, it is now time to seriously examine safe alternatives. The most commonly used
sugars — i.e. sucrose, dextrose, fructose, etc.— all quickly transform into glucose (blood sugar). Glucose is the primary inducer of high insulin levels that contribute to age-related disorders that Dilman first described in 1974, and which has been recently rediscovered and renamed Syndrome X. Dilman first attributed the co-occurrence of obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes, and cancer to insulin-resistance and resultant hyperinsulinemia. Ironically, Dilmans early work both predicted this syndrome and outlined the therapeutic means for reversing these changes.

Other countries around the world have taken a more sensible approach to the sugar problem. Researchers in Finland have been working with a natural sweetener called xylitol for the last 30 years. There, massive health education programs have been used to educate the public on the enormous health benefits and safety of using xylitol. In Russia it has been used for decades as a sweetener for diabetics, in Germany in solutions for intravenous feeding, and in China, xylitol has been used for various medical
purposes. Virtually unknown in Japan 3 to 4 years ago, xylitol sales have soared to over 400 million dollars yearly.

What is Xylitol?
Pure 100% pharmaceutical-grade xylitol is a white, crystalline carbohydrate that is classified, according to some chemical encyclopedias, as a sugar. It is found naturally in fibrous vegetables and fruit, as well as in various hardwood trees like birch. It is even produced by the human body during normal metabolism (up to 15 grams daily from other foods). (2) It is a naturally occurring form of the 5-carbon sugar, xylose (xyl in Greek means wood). (3) The main sources of commercially produced xylitol are corncobs and wood scraps from the lumber industry. Xylitol is more narrowly classified as a polyol or sugar alcohol (without inebriating qualities). Polyols possess functional hydroxyl groups. It is important to note that xylitol differs from other polyols like sorbitol, for example. (4) Xylitol is a 5-carbon pentatol whereas sorbitol is a 6-carbon hexitol.

Sorbitol, consequently, can support the growth of cariogenic (cavity-causing) bacteria in the mouth. However, these bacteria are unable to utilize xylitol for growth. Consequently, xylitol use actually prevents cavities, while other sugars promote cavities.

Xylitol is also much sweeter than sorbitol. Although xylitol is tolerated well even in large servings, very sensitive individuals may need to adapt to higher intakes. An adaptive
increase in the activity levels of an enzyme (a polyol dehydrogenase) greatly increases the rate of xylitol absorption in a few days. This is not the case with sorbitol. Xylitol is slowly absorbed and metabolized, resulting in negligent changes in insulin. It also has 40% fewer calories than ordinary sugar. Xylitol dissolves quickly and produces a cooling sensation in the mouth. It is a true sugar replacement, having the physiologic advantage of a pleasant taste and sweetness equal to sugar with no aftertaste. It can easily be used to replace sucrose (table sugar) in the diet. (5,6)

History and Approval
Discovered in 1891 by German chemist Emil Fischer, xylitol remained relatively unappreciated until the sugar shortages in Finland during World War II. Without a domestic supply of sugar, the Fins began using xylitol. Years later, it was noted that those who used xylitol had better health than those who didnt. This stimulated research to discover why.

Today, xylitol has been extremely well researched with around 1,500 published studies. Xylitol has been used as a sweetening agent in human food since the 1960s. Xylitol is currently approved for use in foods, pharmaceuticals, and oral health products in more than 35 countries.

In 1986, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) was commissioned by the US FDA to review all relevant data concerning xylitol and other polyols. FASEB reported that the use of xylitol is safe for humans and acceptable as an approved food additive in foods for special dietary uses.

In 1983, the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), a scientific advisory board allocated an Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) definition of not specified for xylitol. This indicates that xylitol is extremely safe and that no consumption limits are needed. (5,7,8,9)

In detail JECFA recommended an unlimited ADI based on the safety of xylitol. This type of specification reflects the safest category in which this committee can place a food additive.

Additionally, JECFA recommended that no additional toxicology studies were needed.

Dental Benefits/Antibacterial Qualities
Xylitol may be the ideal alternative to sugar. More than a mere substitute, it appears to be a valuable adjunctive modality in dental care. Clinical and field tests demonstrated
dramatic reductions in new tooth decay, along with arrest and even some reversal of existing dental cavities (Figures 2 and 3). Xylitol provides additional protection that enhances all existing prevention methods. This xylitol effect is long-lasting and possibly permanent. (10 Low decay rates persist even years after trials have been completed.





Clinically Proven Effects of Xylitol


* Inhibits plaque and dental cavities by 80%
* Retards demineralization of tooth enamel
* Promotes remineralization of tooth enamel
* Increases saliva production
* Relieves dry mouth (xerostomia)
* Protects salivary proteins, has a protein-stabilizing effect o Improves breath odor
* Reduces infections in the mouth and nasopharynx (5,11,12,13)


Xylitol binds with calcium and other polyvalent cations, contributing to remineralization of enamel. The calcium-xylitol complexes facilitate calcium absorption through the gut
wall. This suggests xylitol may play a role in preventing osteoporosis. This hypothesis has been tested in experimental animals. (14)

Sugar is fermented by oral bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans, the principal instigator of dental cavities. S. mutans produce acids that eat through the enamel of teeth and cause decay. These bacteria thrive in the low pH (high acid) conditions of the mouth, easily adhering to teeth and producing plaque. Xylitol inhibits the growth of S. mutans by raising the pH of the mouth, providing less hospitable conditions for S. mutans, thereby allowing harmless bacteria to crowd them out. This creates a long-lasting, possibly permanent change in the bacteria of the mouth.

Xylitol also reduces the incidence of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is also a risk factor for damage to heart and blood vessels. In the presence of xylitol, bacterial
adhesion to epithelial cells is disrupted. In an in vitro assay using a 5% solution of xylitol, researchers demonstrated that the mucosal attachment of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae was reduced by factors of 68% and 50%, respectively.

Xylitol-laced gum (mints, nasal spray) is an excellent tool for knocking out infections that start in the mouth and throat. Adults and children old enough to chew gum can easily saturate the oral cavity with bacteria-killing xylitol simply by chewing the gum for five to ten minutes several times daily. Researchers at the University of Oulu, in Finland recently had 306 Finnish children from 11 day-care nurseries chew gum either sweetened with sucrose or xylitol. The average age of the children was five years, and most had been selected because they had a history of recurrent, acute otitis media (middle ear infections). At the end of two months, the group chewing xylitol-sweetened gum had a 40% reduction in the incidence of otitis media when compared to those who used the sucrose-sweetened gum. (15)

Researchers now believe that gum sweetened with xylitol may be a simple way to treat or prevent chronic sinusitis and some of the more serious throat and lung infections.
This is tremendously significant, since recurrent otitis media is the number-one reason for childrens visits to doctors. It is also the reason for millions of prescriptions of antibiotics, useless surgeries to the eardrum to allow drainage, and many other questionable procedures. Based on these new findings, many of these problems could be totally eliminated through the use of xylitol. It is also possible that the virulent bacteria flora present in the aero-digestive tract can be favorably affected by systematic xylitol use.

To be effective, 4 to 12 grams of xylitol per day are needed (gums and mints contain about 1 gram each). We suggest using xylitol 3-5 times daily between meals. Increasing dental benefits level off at around 15 grams per day.

Xylitol Improves Diabetes and Carbohydrate Sensitivity
Increases of blood glucose, serum lipids and insulin have been associated with sugar consumption. Advantages of using xylitol to improve blood sugar control include:


* Excellent taste, versatility and equivalent sweetness
* Low calorie
* Very low glycemic index
* Minimal effect on blood sugar and insulin levels
* Slow, steady release of energy
* Antiketogenic - lowers serum free fatty acid levels and improves peripheral glucose utilization
* Increases absorption of B vitamins and calcium
* Improves dental health
* Inhibits yeast, including Candida Albicans
* Decreases glycation of proteins, reduces AGEs
* Reduces carbohydrate cravings and binge eating (16,17)


Xylitol Aids Weight Loss
There are many different strategies for weight control. Xylitol fits neatly into most of them. Xylitol slows stomach-emptying and its low glycemic index and mostly insulin-independent metabolism makes it ideal for maintaining steady levels of insulin and blood sugar. This increases satiety and reduces bingeing. Xylitol is incompletely
absorbed, and only a portion of what is absorbed slowly converts to glucose. An important added bonus of xylitol metabolism is the activation of the glutathione antioxidant system which helps to squelch free radicals generated by heavy exercise, thereby reducing oxidative damage to muscle and blood cells. Because xylitol is efficiently and steadily converted to glucose (energy) and glycogen (storage) it may be particularly useful when coupled with other carbohydrates for recovery after heavy exercise. Likewise, it may be valuable for carbohydrate loading (super-compensating) by packing glycogen after a depletion phase.

Xylitol used between meals maintains a steady trickle of energy. Unabsorbed xylitol acts like dietary fiber, helping to maintain healthy gut function. Partial bacterial fermentation here produces volatile short chain fatty acids that are utilized along existing insulin-independent energy pathways.

Xylitol for Athletes and Bodybuilders
Strength athletes (football players, bodybuilders, etc.) searching for alternatives to steroids are particularly intrigued by xylitol. Even thin runners want to avoid the emaciated
look caused by upper body protein being used for fuel. Developing lean muscle mass involves increasing anabolism (build-up) while minimizing catabolism (breakdown) of muscle protein. These are well-documented xylitol effects in conditions of stress and trauma. It is not known yet how well these findings will translate for athletes and bodybuilders, but the possibilities look promising.

Summary of Benefits
Xylitol is a sweet-tasting sugar substitute that has been approved for use in more than 35 countries. Consumption of xylitol is associated with a significant reduction in tooth decay, resulting in fewer cavities and resolution of periodontal disease. Xylitol has been shown to contribute to increased bone density, weight loss, stabilization of blood
sugar and lowering of insulin levels. Additional benefits include:


* Increases energy by enhancing ATP production
* Increases utilization of fat
* Replenishes glycogen
* Anabolic — keeps biosynthetic pathways open
* Anticatabolic —helps maintain lean muscle mass
* Antioxidant —generates NADPH, keeping glutathione in an active state
* Increases endurance
* Reduces free radical and oxidative damage


Dosages of xylitol up to 15 grams per day have been used in clinical studies, with excellent results for a number of clinical conditions. The safety of xylitol has been extensively tested. To date, it is completely devoid of adverse effects. And the best part, is that it tastes good.

Finally, to the person who picks at them with a toothpick.....BAD BAD BAD! You said you even make them bleed....this will only provide an avenue for bacteria to enter, fester, and create more of a problem for you. That is one sure way to get a very bad infected throat! Using a blunt object, like a Qtip is softer and definitly a far better choice. Simply apply some pressure (small) just below the stone, and it will pop out! No blood, No possible infection. If your brave enough to poke it with a toothpick, then you might at well get an exacto knife (not much different) and cut your own tonsils out.

yeah, serioiusly enough with the xytol.. honestly i wouldn't want to spends hundreds of thousands of dollars even if it did work for the stones, i wouldn't want to keep paying money over and over to keep the supply of the product...id rather get my tonsils out, which is what i did, and it was free! Also saying tonsils fight infections, its proven they do not after the age of 21. They do basiaclly nothing but cause problems!
 
tim618 last decade
both my grandmothers had their tonsils out, one is going to be 80 and the other is 91. The one who is 91 is the healthiest person I know. She gets sick less than I do. So I don't think removing the tonsils drastically, if at all, effects the immune system.

I have had tonsil stones for about 4 years now and I want my tonsils out. Doctors seem resistant to take them out though, they have given me allergy medicine such as various nasal sprays and antihistimines to control mucus build up/post-nasal drip. They have also suggested gargling hydrogen peroxide, (which works if you gargle it very, very, very vigorously for 5-10 minutes) and listerine(which doesn't work). The problem is my insurance has changed 3 times during the past 4 years so I keep changing doctors.

Anyway MY QUESTION IS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD THEIR TONSILS REMOVED BECAUSE OF TONSIL STONES. Do you have to keep pestering your doctor and if so how many visits did it take till they agreed to the procedure?

MsBlase last decade
Tim,
What, exactly, did you do to get a doctor (of all people) to remove your tonsils for free? You know what, nevermind I don't want to know.

Nick,
It's awesome your grandmothers are thriving at that age. My great-great-grandmother lived until she was 99. I have always been hopeful that the longevity factor will just trickle down to me naturally. The reality is, people like our respective garndmothers are an exception to the rule, and noth the norm. Immnunity has to do with the ability to fight off infectious disease, not longevity. Recent research has shown that one major factor with longevity shows that some people have more of an efficient glutathione cycle than others, this they are able to literally keep their cell function going longer. Infectious disease spreads from person to person (well the worst ones do anyway). If you grandmothers are anything like mine was they never travel more than 50 miles from home (or very rarely). If everyone did this we could kock out most infectious disease in a year, but that's not reality, the truth is the world is getting smaller and more and newer strains of bacteria are developping. My great-great-grandmother was never privy to these wonderful new bugs becasue she always was around the same people everyday (or at least most days).

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING YOUR DOCTOR TO HAVE YOUR TONSILS REMOVED here is some advice. Doctors are not gods. Your dialogue should be very simple. Say I want my tonsils removed. If they say no it's too dangerous or we don't do that anymore because of the consequences or whatever, that's when you say Well if you don;t do it, not only will I go somehwere else and you get no money, but I will report you to every internet site I can think of and give you the most horrible write-up ever. You are a paying customer (well most of us have to pay). Would you go to McDonalds (hypothetically)and ask for a Big Mac and let them say 'No I think you should have a fish sandwich.' and let them give it to you without question. No you would not becasue that's not what you want. IMHO, if you haven't had an argumnet with a doctor, then you're not a savvy healthcare consumer. If they don't have enough respect for you to listen to you then you shouldn't have enough respect for them let other people go to them for help. Nothing you can say to them will affect the outcome of your surgery because doctors nowadays are terrified of malpratice suits.

Snorkels,
3 days Xylitol gargle=0 stones. Also I am chewing the gum.

i go to kaiser permanente, through my hmo, if its recommended by a doc its free. so i got my surgery for free, my father also got a cornea transplant, it only cost 5 dollars. also letting water wash out your throat in the shower, that doesn't work, that would amost make me puke! I went to the doc one time and he knew what the stones were, he said nothing you can do but leave them be, other than ge them out, thats when i said thats what i want to do. He said are you sure? You'll be in a lot of pain for 10 days, i said yes, so he scheduled the surgery right there.

if anyone has tried xylitol, please speak up.

i dont sell xylitol. i do promote it as a health miracle.

whether it is or not, i dont know because ive not done a controlled study.

i do know that in my family we have used it with extraordinary results. sore throat, allergies, weight loss.

read about it yourselves but please try it and report results and try not to be overly critical unless youve tried it, yourself.


i have no doubt that shooting the shower into your mouth works also. i do that daily with the oxygenics shower head--any shower head works but im partial to the oxygenics shower head (im not selling those either)

Wow, thank you. I started getting these things around November last year. But, I hate going to the doctor so I just kind of ignored them. And they went away. Me being a hypochonriac, I thought it was some sort of cancer, or STD (even though there's no way that could of been possible.). But the other day I noticed them again. I get this really scratchy feeling in my throat and it drives me crazy. So today I decided to go look for what it could be. Thankfully I found this. I feel so much better about it. I really don't want to get my tonsils removed, (not right now anyways) so I guess I'll put up with them.

Just like to say that I think I've noticed a link between consuming products with yeast (bread, beer etc) and the production of tonsiliths. They also happen when I have a 'flu. I surf and can reccommend the use of the salt water gargle as everytime I go in the sea I end up spitting far more of these things than I think can possibly hide in there (sorry about the image).
