Simple Steps You Can Take To Remove Tonsil Stones (Without Surgery!)

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
, 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
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.
Now keep in mind, if you truly want to prevent bad breath then you must use an
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.
