to me the appendix is kinda like a diverticulum. i dont know for sure. i believe the appendix has some lymphatic function whereas the diverticulae have none. they are little pouches of intestinal stasis

diverticulitis is a bigger booger than appendicitis i believe. maybe thats next. the white coated immortals are working their way from top to bottom or was it bottom to top.

i am reluctant to mention that the unmentionable is effective in greatly reducing some common pathogens and blocking pathogenic toxins associated with bowel infections:

snorklel,

are you trying to scare me into liking you are believing what your saying!? Because i dont! Some of the stuff your saying is ridiculous. Why on earth would i think something else is wrong with me and i feel fine and your like well uh, no, this is going to happen to you next, all because you had your tonsils out, see! Your not even a doctor, and if you were, you would be a crappy one, because every one of your perscription write outs would be for xylitol! I'm retiring now from this forum, because you are a dumbass. Sorry guys, i really cant take this anymore. Have good lives, and i really do hope you can find a cure.

tim,try not being such a jerk, youll like it. no i dont see.
youve obviously missed something or surmised something not intended out of a very short chat board message --please like me, i need a chat room buddy.

yea, thats what i need a ninny with an eggshell ego as a buddy-smirk and, im not a doctor (thank you lord) but i stayed at the holiday inn one time.

you all are a very reactionary group for being on an alternative medicine board if that is what it is. maybe this would make a good twilightzone movie. i dont know remember exactly how i fell in this hole but im stayin for a while. wanna see if i can get a few of you hot heads steamed

timass,yea, you probably do have diverticulums developing but youre gonna have a hemmorage somehwere, eventually, if you get riled up that easy--get a grip (watch out guys timass is gonna blow and we dont know from whether its gonna be the top or the bottom, yet) stay tuned,il post when i have the diagsosis and prognosis

i must say you feel 'so fine' repeatedly as you have parts removed is funny--come on, its laughable. and, you evidently have complete trust in your surgeon--scary

so just stay in your reactionary, safe (not safe) cocoon with your wonderful surgeon..and remain a genuine TIMass forever--smilee

((TIMASS quote from page 52:THE TONSILS DO NOT DO ANYTHING FOR YOUR BODY AFTER THE AGE OF 21. IT has beed proven. My doctor also said it is true. They are meant for when you are young, but after that they are useless except for giving you stones! So if anyone wants to get rid of it permenately i would suggest getting the tonsils out! Its the best thing i've done))

are you serious and is it really
the best thing youve done?,,, hun?

since you brought it up, whats your educational level? and age also, if you dont mind. id like to figure out how much will be left of you in the future. wont be much, i guess--just kiddin therell be quite a bit left, im sure, weight-wise at least.

boy you guys are easy to rile-smirk, snicker

how many on this board anyway?
ive already really urinateded off: timass, nicole, moeller

REACTIONARY. REACTIONARY. REACTIONARY.

maybe this board should be called the never challenge our long held beliefs board

and timass
xylitol (the unmentionable) is a small part of the universe and fairly insignificant im sure of. but in the small universe of alternative medicine it is quite unique. maybe its not that great but its what i am hyping (just ribbin-smilee) right now. no i think it 'real good'. but, i aint promisin nothin except that if you use too much at first you might have projectile diahrhea.

that might do you some good as you might be able to clear some of those diverticula and reduce that back pressure you been havin that seems likely to blow thru the top of your head. of course with you and your surgeon thatll be fine because youll feel fine after he does your crainiotomy--kiddin


anyway i believe, knowing that you feel really fine, like i told nicole:

youll change your mind if you try the unmentionable (xylitol) and be sorry if you dont even if you never realize it, but, of course, you wont and you will be the loser

tim618 last decade
Tim,
I think what snorkels was trying to express is that when you make an uexpected change to something, there could be unexpected outcomes. Regarding your colon, it probably the most overlooked and undernourished organ in the body. If you are not going 2 to 3 times EVERY day you have sick colon. That's the bad news, the good news is you can fix it fairly easily, with one magic word. Fiber. No I am not talking about fiber supplements I mean food with tons of fiber in it. Kashi has a whole line of cereals with good amounts of fiber. Beand, dark green leafy veggies, I know I don't need to tell you what has fiber, I am sure you know. The other (worse) possibility is that your doctor was asking if you had heartburn and reflux caused by H. Pylori (helicobacter pylori). This bug is all over the human digestive track and one false move can trigger an infection. That one false move may have been the change to your immune system. This is one powerful bug, and it is one where if you give it an inch it will take a mile. Nobody (not even a doctor) will be able to tell you for sure if the one lead to the other but if it looks like a fish, smells like a fish, and tastes like a fish it just might be a fish. Remember this if nothing else, for every action there is a reaction. If it is H. Pylori I woul find a good supply of probiotics supplement (not just yougurt, you need to active colony forming units).

Nicole,
I think a good detox will help you tremendously. Your lymph system is clogged and it is difficult go get it unclogged by any conventional (read: modern) means. Fortunately there are a bunch of alternative treatments for you, anything from Reiki or polarity to massage to ionic foot baths, to accupuncture. The lypmh system is hard to drain on your own, but easy to drain with help (provided you have some cash of course, nothing good is ever free). Probably the cheapest, easiest and least invasive technique is the ionic foot bath. If you can sit for 30 minutes you can do it. Expect to pay anywhere from 20 to 40 bucks a session and they will probably recommend 6 to 10 session. Or you can fork out a grand or two for your own personal ionizer and do it at home any time you want. I don't know what kind of money you have (if you do have that kind of money, I am accepting donations from kind rich people, I promise the money will be well spent).

Snorkels,
What do yo think about a xylitol enema? Then you could get a t-shirt that says 'I have sweet azz and I know it'. No seriously though if you did do it I would recommend using probiotics to replace the good bacteria on your system. Also what do you know about how temperature effects xylotol? I assume putting it in tea is useless because heat will kill the anti-bacterial properties?

Grasshoppers....

Every so often things get a little 'testy' on here and after a little contemplative introspection it is soon very clear it doesn't achieve anything. We all have our deeply cherished beliefs and no one likes them challenging but if you come on here they will be - so accept it!

HP is a major cause of constipation so one contributor is right - however, the only way to get rid of it is with triple therapy - so someone must be wrong to suggest anything else will do the job.

As for that xylitiol (sic) stuff - no idea what it is but if it does the trick then great (see previous posts ages ago about the health giving properties of orange juice (but it must be FRESH oj...). Sorry for the dry humour..

There's now an interesting bit in Wikipedia now that suggests that the crypts are linked to an extent, (so are not just discrete holes) so the infection theory holds more and more water. Justme is convinced they're amyncoytes. (sorry, I know its the wrong spelling but its started raining and I have to get my washing in). I don't normally disagree with her but I think she's wrong as the effects of the amynowotsit bug would be considerably more devastating than tonsil stones...

It's a bug Jim, but not as we know it...

Chill people - bask in the self satisfaction that you know the other idiot is talking b****cks. But keep it to yourself...
 
albert22 last decade
Just wanted to calrify about H. Pylori. I sugested using probiotics, which do help keep it in check but in no way completely eradicate h. pylori. It will help with some of the more annoying effects of h. pylori like heartburn but it will likely do very little for constipation. Unless you have some other serious colon disorder, the cure for constipation is to eat stuff that makes you poop. Also staying hydrated is key.
 
darak last decade
darak,

thanks for thinking

xylitol enema? i dont know. i would think it would be ok. i use it for sinus irrigation, eye irrigation a little (high dilution) and orally.

as for probiotic i have read that xylitol is probiotic after it is metabolized to short chain fatty acids in the intestinal tract. i believe that the short chain fatty acids are good nutrition for aerobic bacteria and beneficial bacteria. it is not probiotic in its xylitol form, it just prevents adherence of bactria and bactrial toxins to linings of various internal organs so it may be useful for treatment of yeast infections and overinfections by e coli and clostridium etc when applied topically to the colon during an enema??

cooking with xylitol is ok so i guess it doesnt change as long as you keep the temp below the oxidation (burning) level. putting it in hot or cold tea is great

TIMass,

im sure that you will never get to xylotopia-smirk
 
snorkels4 last decade
i disagree that one must have several bowel movements per day to be healthy.

i am vegan, and eat a mostly whole-foods diet at that. veggies, fruit, whole grains, beans, some tofu. i usually eliminate once daily, and roughly at the same time every day. i'm sure i eat a healthier diet than 95% of north americans.

oh, and snorkels4, i was shopping the other day and happened to see something that jogged my memory. for a period of maybe 8 months, i elimated sugar from diet (well, processed stuff like candy, pop, etc). i replaced several 'junk' foods with healthier products that used xylitol instead of sugar. i was eating at least one of these items per day (sometimes 2 or 3- i had found an awesome brand of little xylitol chocolate bars). you know what? i experienced no reduction, let alone complete disappearance of tonsil stones. nor did my tonsils shrink down.

perhaps you precious xylitol works for you and some other people, but i wouldn't go around touting it as a miracle cure until you know for sure that it indeed works wonders. i'm just letting you know that while xylitol can make for some really tasty chocolate, it did absolutely nothing for my tonsil stones, even though i used it daily for a substantial period of time. eliminating dairy is the only thing that has ever worked for me. and while i have indeed suggested it on here, i have no illusions that it would work for every single person out there.

i think that's a key thing to keep in mind- maybe tonsil stones are an affliction that don't have one and ONLY one cure. maybe it's one of those things where different treatments work for different people.
 
kmoeller last decade
I will correct myself kmoeller. You should be eliminating 3 times per day if you eat three meals per day. I was speaking for the majority who are not on vegan diets, that eat based on a clock because we live in such a rushed, eat fast and get back to work, world.

It is certainly possible to have one bowel movement per day and have a perfectly healthy colon, that is if you eat one meal per day.

The fact remains, if you are not eliminating what you eat in 6 hours (from your bowel), your colon is sluggish. If you haven't eliminated in 6 hours that means the food/waste has hit a slow spot. I don't care if it is meat, cheese, veggies, dirt, plastic, garbage, tin cans, carboard boxes or whatever. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans fall into this category. This is one point that both allopathic medicine and naturopathic medicine agree on.

Not to disgust anyone on the board, but when you go it should be long well formed and flow out effortlessly. If this is not the case you may have a sluggish colon or be constipated.
 
darak last decade
moeller,

unless you use the xylitol mixed in a syrup and use it as a gargel, you are not following the method i used.

i dont know how long the effect of tonsil shrinkage took. i really only started looking a couple of months ago when i noticed they were 'gone'. i stumbled on this board just a week or so ago and thought i could do some good. with all of you knucleheads here i doubt it but its fun anyway-smirk

i suspect that the xylitol is responsible.

because it has so many other health benefits is the reason that i started using it to beging with.

try the method stated and you may enter xylotopia also-smilee

i certainly dont believe xylitol is the one and only cure if it is that at all. you knuckleheads just dont get it.

i cant get beyond xylitol because i will not cower to name calling and intimidation by a bunch of reactionary ninnys

i think xylitol is a likely one shot remedy if any one thing could be. and then i dont even know for sure because it would take a double blind plecebo controlled white coated immortal study to confirm it. while that would make TIMass happy it would make xylitol an expensive drug--and that aint gonna happen
 
snorkels4 last decade
thanks for trying to clarify but my earlier point that got TIMass so foaming at the mouth angry, probably has little to do with h. pylori.

i was refering to reflex activity between different parts of the digestive system.

i know there is a gastric-colic reflex and i surmise there is a colo-gastric reflex. my wife and father have both experienced stomach problems as a result of being constipated. my dad was immediately able to stop his prilosed when he did a colon cleansing. my wife definitely understands or believes in the link because of her similar experience. i was merely trying to convey thgis concept to TIMass when he went ballistic.

by the way xylitol 'may' prevent the attachment of h. pylori to intestinal walls-i wouldnt be surprised-look it up if you care

it works against clostridium dificil which killed my dad 16 months ago. i wish i had known about xylitol at that time. i believe it may have worked where metronidazole and another antibiotic didnt.

you seems to have developed a dislike of xylitol or just me.

my back alley lingo is a bit rusty. could you give a little more enlightenment on what b****cks is?

if you are condemning xylitol without knowing anything about it, why? is it because of b****cks or just plain ignorance and intollerance??

I know I'm new here and hope I can ask a question on subject without getting flamed. It has been almost 2 years since the tonsil stones started giving me problems, also chronic post nasal drip, dry throat so bad my airway will close and stick when I cough at night and serious vocal chord irritation -- to the point of not being able to carry on a lengthy conversation with family members. I have tried all the classic herbal remedies, 2 courses of antibiotics, diet variations to eliminate certain food groups, and am no better off. My job won't allow me the time for a tonsilectomy so I am open to any serious suggestions. HELP!!!
 
conundrum last decade
darak,

i know that i have had a sluggish digestive system for the past while. i usually eat 2 meals a day, in addition to 2 or 3 light snacks. when i only eat one snack or meal a day (i try not to do that, but sometimes chaos reigns) it can take several days to completely digest and expell everything. i know it's due to medication, though.

to stay on topic, this brings up another question. could certain medications cause stones? i know i've had them way before i started on my current medication.

i've also been wondering something else. most people who eat meat and dairy don't get it from organic sources, and so a lot of people are ingesting residual antibiotics. also consider the fact that too many doctors nowadays write out scripts for antibiotics when they aren't really necessary. i think we would all agree that tonsil stones seem to be a bacteria-related problem, connected to ailments of strep throat. i wouldn't be surprised if it's somehow related to overexposure to antibiotics.

Nasal Spray/Wash Formula
Ingredient Quantity
US Measure Metric
Water 1 cup 237 ml
Salt ¼ scant to level teaspoon 1.25 ml
Xylitol 2½ level teaspoon 12.32 ml
GSE 4 drops NutriBiotic¨
Grapefruit Seed Extract

Instructions: Use of warm water (preferably non-chlorinated, filtered or distilled) helps to dissolve ingredients and, when used as a wash, is comforting. Stir mixture until the ingredients dissolve completely. Pickling salt is preferred to regular table salt as the latter usually has undesirable additives (to enhance flow). The salt is soothing and therapeutic. While the xylitol is optional, it helps to wash away germs and pollutants in your sinuses, and makes it difficult for germs to colonize. If you have liquid NutriBiotic GSE, add 4 drops. Other brands may have different sized drops or potencies, so adjust as needed. NutriBiotic has fairly small drops and is 33% Citricidal. Some GSE brands are triple strength, or 100% Citricidal. The GSE is useful to attack germs and acts as a preservative. Without GSE, use formula within a few days or discard.

Garlic nose drops. In his book The Healing Power of Garlic Paul Bergner writes: ÒGarlic nose drops directly kill the viruses that cause cold or flu.Ó He also writes about a study with mice where some were inoculated with garlic, and some were not. The flu virus was introduced to the nasal passages of each mouse. Those mice that received the garlic remained healthy, where all the others got sick. To make nose drops, Bergner instructs us to crush some garlic to obtain juice, and add ten parts water and mix well. It could be added to the saline-xylitol formula above, if you like, to enhance its germ killing abilities.

In addition to the nose drops, eating raw garlic is also helpful and has a systemic effect. Note: deodorized garlic tablets are not useful in fighting viral or bacterial infections.

To use as a wash: First, blow your nose. Then, over the bathroom sink, put one or two teaspoons of nasal wash mixture in the palm of your hand, put one nostril in the water, close off the other nostril with a finger and inhale briskly. Try to take the water far up into your sinuses. Then let the water drain out your nostril and into the sink. Repeat this several times then switch to the other nostril. If done correctly, youÕll have a sensation in your nose which is very similar to having recently taken a swim (at least with a salt water mixture; the xylitol mixture may produce a somewhat different sensation). Repeat this process, alternating between nostrils, until your nose is feeling relatively clear. The salt in the water helps to cleanse and soothe the mucus membranes and sinuses, and helps make you feel better (at least for a while). You are attacking the flu and cold viruses where they live, and diminishing their numbers (particularly if youÕve added xylitol, GSE or garlic juice). Repeating this procedure as often as needed during the day will help to shorten the duration of your illness, and make you feel better. Doing this before going to bed can help to promote sleep. This procedure can also be effective against seasonal allergies as it cleanses the sinuses and washes away irritants.

If you cannot or do not wish to make your own nasal spray, a commercial formula is available for purchase called Xlear (pronounced Òclear.Ó) It is a very good product.

Post Nasal Drip

Post nasal drip is the feeling that mucus is accumulating in the throat or dripping from the back of your nose. Post nasal drip is caused by excessive or unusual mucus secretion from the glands of the nose and throat. These glands actually produce one to two quarts of mucus a day; it is normally swallowed unconsciously. This mucus moistens and cleans nasal passages, humidifies air, fights infection, and traps and clears inhaled foreign matter. Post nasal drip occurs when mucus becomes too thick or thin as a result of infection, irritation, or an allergic reaction. Post nasal drip can also result from throat and swallowing disorders.

For most people, post nasal drip begins in the nose; in fact, more than 90% of infection causing bacteria and irritants enter the body through the nose and thrive in the nasal passages. When viruses and other pollutants enter the nose, the body reacts by sending white blood cells to the lining of the nose and produces additional mucus to wash away irritants. This often results in congestion. As we blow our nose to relieve congestion, cough, and swallow phlegm, bacteria are forced into the ears, sinuses and throat.

Post nasal drip can be irritating and uncomfortable. Post nasal drip often leads to a sore, irritated throat and even swelling of the tonsils. It can also lead to or result from upper respiratory infections, such as an ear or sinus infection. Post nasal drip can be avoided or at least reduced by regularly using a nasal wash. Most of us wouldn't go a day without washing our hands, at least a few times, but do nothing to flush away the harmful bacteria that lead to post nasal drip. Saline nasal sprays are an excellent remedy for daily nasal cleansing. Although they moisturize and keep the nose healthy, saline nasal sprays, alone, do little to combat bacterial and viral growth that leads to post nasal drip.

Xlear™ Nasal Wash is a patented, non-addictive nasal spray designed to aid in the relief and management of sinus infection caused by pollutants, allergens and infections of the nasal passages. Unlike other nasal sprays that can actually aggravate a sinus infection if overused, Xlear Nasal Wash contains only natural ingredients and is non-habit forming. It is the ONLY nasal wash that combines the unique properties of the natural substance, Xylitol, and the health-promoting practice of a saline nasal spray to help wash, hydrate and moisturize the nasal passages. 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. Unlike most antibiotics which kill the majority of bacteria and leave the resistant, super bacteria behind, Xlear Nasal Wash merely flushes harmful bacteria away.

The makers of Xlear Nasal Wash, Xlear Inc., have also developed a number of other products, based on pure Xylitol, which will greatly improve the quality of your life. To find our more, visit Xlearinc.com. Put the power of Xylitol to work for you and start feeling better today!
