Thanks to everyone who has written in about this nasty matter. Two months ago, I started suffering from this condition, but I had no idea until tonight what this was. It started after sufferng from two severe colds this winter, one on top of the other. I am 33 and have a history of mono during my teenage years, followed by chronic strep throat. I've also had a problem with white matter on my tongue for about two years now. I've recently started suffering with allergies, after bragging through most of my life that I wasn't allergic to anything. My 21 year old sister suffers from the same ailment, and my mother did as well, prior to having her tonsils removed (makes me wonder if there might be some genetic predisposition?). Both my sister and myself have received zero helpful information from those in the medical field ("it's just food" and "everyone's tongue looks like that"). Like many other testimonials on this site, it seems to get worse with dairy products, smoking, and possibly alcohol. I am definately tired, although have no other physical complaints to speak of. Tonsils tend to feel chronically swollen and uncomfortable, especially after one of the stones passes (or I make it pass). I wonder if it's best to get them out, or just leave em alone?

Ive tried everything, my doctor initially thought it was an infection and prescribed me antibiotics. That didnt help at all. I then went to see a Throat Specialist, he told me tonsil stones are very common. Most people have got them, but they dont notice it because they just swallow it. The reason why people get the balls stuck at the back of your throat, is because when you eat, food gets stuck in the tiny holes called the tonsil crypts.
So over time, the tiny holes (tonsil crypts) in your tonsils get filled up with bacteria and food particles which then become smelly. There is one way of removing the balls in your throat, use a water jet syringe and squirt the water onto the white ball. But thats only a temporary relief, because it will grow again.
Ive seen 2 naturopaths and 1 homeopath about my problem, but they couldnt help either. I have to say I have spent almost $800, just seeing naturopaths and specialists.
A few months ago, a friend introduced me to this berry juice called the Himilayan Goji Juice. Ive been taken it for a few months now, and my tonsil stones have completely gone! Its just unbelievable, the juice is made up of a berry called Goji (Lycium Barbarum). You may not have heard of Goji before, but it has been used in traditional Asian medicine remedies for generations.
What encouraged me to give it a try is that it is formulated by the Nutritionist Dr Earl Mindell, the man who wrote the Vitamin Bible, which sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
I really think you should try this juice, as it has certainly helped me. I drink 30mls everyday in the morning. Here is the website, give it a try.

I work in the medical profession, and after doing x-rays on a little girl- I went back to clean the room, and the mother was talking to the father and said that it smelled as if the x-ray girl ate poo and still has some in her mouth. How embarrasing. How do I get rid of these stinky things?

Good oral hygiene including scraping the tongue ,back off on the sugar and wheat products ,take some plain unsweetened yogourt to replace the good bacteria.Of course a good mouthwash will help.

I have to say I've tried anti-biotics many times and it didn't help. Anti-biotics are used for infections, tonsil stones are not infections but food particles which have been trapped in the tonsil crypts (tiny holes in your tonsils).
As time passes by, the food particles begin to accumulate bateria, which is the cause of the foul smell. I have had tonsil stones for 3 years. I've been to medical doctors, specialists, naturopaths and homeopaths. They just kept giving me herbal medicine or anti-biotics which never got rid of my problem. After a while, the cost of my medicine was adding up.
One day I went to this Body, Mind and Health expo. And there was a store there selling Himilayan Goji Juice. I found out that goji berry is one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet, and I never even heard of it. After doing some research, I found out its backed by the an international nutritionist called Dr. Earl Mindell, which conducted 8 years of research into this berry. He is the man who wrote the Vitamin Bible which sold more than 10 million copies.
Anyway, I did some research on w w w. p u b m e d. org, and typed in 'Lycium Barbarum', which is the name of the berry and found over 72 medical studies on it.
Then I also went to w w w. g o j i b o o k. com, and found lots of information on this amazing berry.
For the last 5 months, I've been drinking 2 onces of this juice everyday. Its just incredible, I have not seen a tonsil stone at all! How it worked on me i'm not sure. But all I know is that its definately have eliminated the balls in my throat. You can get the juice at w w w. e v e r l a s t i n g. f r e e l i f e. c o m. You probably need to try it for a month or two before your see the results.
Anyway, hope this helps.

The best tools for their removal that I have found are 1. a miniflashlight that bends like those for reading books in bed. 2. a professional pimple extractor (sold at sephora) it has a loop on one side and a scoop with a hole on the other side (it works like the bobby suggestions but much more precise). 3. ALCOHOL swabs! The implements need to be sterile before you stick it onto your tosils or you will make it worse or give yourself an infection in the process!
Finally consider the stones like you would pimples. (just on the inside of your throat instead of on your skin). When they are ready to be extruded they should come out with minimal pressure by looping the metal loop around it and pressing down gently on the tonsil and pulling it outward. The end effect should be minimal contact with the tonsil so you don't irritate it further.

I never knew why I was getting tonsil stones, until I started to do some research on the internet. I found this book called Tonsil Stones Remedies. I thought if I was already spending so much money seeing ENT and specialist doctors. I might as well give this book a try, I have to say I was a big sceptical at first.
However, after reading this book, I found the information to be incredible. This book was the answer to what I have been looking for 5 years. This book teaches you how to Prevent and Get rid of tonsil stones, not for a short amount of time, but for ever. It is a home remedy treatment to getting rid of tonsil stones. After trying it for 2 months, there has been no reoccurrence of my tonsil stones at all. I wanted to say thanks to the author of this book, you are really a life saver! If you want to check this book, go to:

This pushes out on the tonsils like your coughing up flem or something, if you know what I mean.
Or like when you get a pocorn skin stuck in your throat and your trying to clear it out.

I've had tonsil stones for about 5 years and have recently come to realize that I suffer from post nasal drip. I quit smoking recently but that hasn't helped my sinus problems. I'm fairly certain that my PND and tonsil stones are related so now it's just a matter of figuring out how to mitigate the PND. Anyone else suffer from PND and tonsil stones?
Also, I'm pretty sure I don't suffer from halitosis (often linked with tonsil stones) I've given myself the breath tests and asked my mother to smell my breath and be honest and it would seem my breath is normal. Are there others suffering from tonsil stones but not halitosis?

The tonsil stones are only there accasionaly but I've had mine off and on for well over 10 years.
The PND I've had almost all my life, and I'm sure if I stoped drinking milk and eating dairy this would help the PND.
I believe the tonsil stones are a by product of PND as well as calcium and other odd things we consume. It just builds up and when the canal gets too full it pushes the stones out.
But try to harr with your throat concentrating on the side that you can see the stones that need to come out.
If you need to see the stones or know they are there beofre this will work.
Mine drove me crazy and hurt until I figured this out.

So, i've been really tired lately and felt like my throat was closing up last week. then i was just being curious and looking in my mouth with a mirror when i saw 2 white 'bumps' on my left tonsil. i went to the Dr. where i got negative test results for both strep and mono and a sound diagnosis of 'Who Knows??' unsatisfied i googled and ended up here. last night i popped out 2 of the stones and it seems like there is still another one in there today when i looked in better light. HOW deep are these cavities?!?
i feel like this came out of nowhere, i'm an very healthy young woman (26,)eat well, i do not have bad breath nor PND from what i'm aware of.. i do eat dairy but have my entire life so why this now?? i've read almost all of these posts and still dont have an answer to what causes the ONSET of these stones. the only thing that i have changed in recent times is that i started taking a low dose birth control pill. other than that everything is the same!
clearly based on what you all say this is something that can go undetected for a long time.. one thing now that i'm wondering about now is awhile back i felt like my throat was closing while i was trying to fall asleep.. i would get scared, sit up and take a sip of water. i thought i had sleep apnea or stress~ this was awful but eventually went away until just recently. do you think it could've been stones i was unaware of?? i guess that would make sense.
also, is there any reason that some people have deep tonsular cavities and others dont? are you born like that or is it from something else??
i hate to admit this but i was bulemic for a few years but have completely recovered and that was over 4 years ago. i'm just wondering if i damaged my tonsils and thats why i now have big cavities subject to getting these stones.
i appreciate your input.
