There are many ways to remove your tonsil stones. You can use tools, special mouthwashes and even pay your dentist/doctor to do it. They’re all pretty safe and effective, however they can come at a price.
So to save you a few bucks I’ve listed and elaborated on a few natural remedies in this post. They’re all common household items so I’m sure you all will be able to try them out!
Garlic helps fight off the bad bacteria that can be attributed to the development of your tonsil stones. This is due to it’s antibacterial, anti-fungal and probiotic properties.
If you have a pretty severe case of tonsil stones then I would chew on it (outwith meals) a few times per day. You can include it in your cooking but for the best results I would chew on some separately.
The smell of the garlic could also mask the stench of your tonsil stones which is another useful advantage. In saying that though, the smell of garlic isn’t particularly pleasant so maybe don’t chew on some before going out!
This is another food that has some antibacterial properties so it’ll help fight off the sulfur producing bacteria around your tongue and gums.
Just like the garlic, if you suffer severely from tonsil stones then chew on these a few times per day. It doesn’t smell as pungent so it should be a little easier to work in.
Onion also has other health benefits such as reducing the formation of blood clots and can help prevent/treat asthma. So overall it’s a great food to incorporate into your diet.
Now lime doesn’t directly treat your tonsil stones. All it really does is improve your oral health, which will improve your tonsil stones situation.
Most are people are deficient in Vitamin C which is often a cause of many gum related health issues, not just tonsil stones. Therefore, by consuming something high in Vitamin C (i.e. Lime) you’ll be improving your immune system and reducing the likelihood of you ever getting these issues.
There are a few ways to take this daily but I think the easier is drinking lime water every morning. Just a good squeeze of fresh lime to 8 ounces of clean water and you’re good to do.
You just need to make sure this reaches the back of your throat for full effect.
This is a technique that has been around for hundreds of years and is very effective at improving oral health. Therefore it can help you prevent the development of tonsil stones.
Basically what you’re doing is swirling an oil (olive, coconut, sesame, etc.) around your mouth for a period of 15-20 minutes. The theory behind it is that this will help detoxify your mouth and get rid of the tonsil stone causing bacteria.
This will of course improve your overall oral hygiene which brings many other benefits as well, such as whiter teeth and better gum health.
You can see how effective it is in the video below.
Also, the act of swirling could help shake the stones out.
Trying to cough your tonsil stones out can take quite a bit of effort but they aren’t causing you too much pain then it’s an ideal method.
You just need to make sure you don’t cough too hard and hurt yourself. But at the same time, you can’t cough too lightly otherwise you won’t be able to get them out.
This can be hard to work out at first but after a few goes it’ll be pretty easy.
Drink enough water
This is more of a prevention method but I often think that these are worth even more of your time. After all, isn’t working to prevent tonsil stones better than having to remove them?
I certainly think so. That’s why I try my best to drink enough water each day.
It differs for each person but for the most part, you should be getting at least 8 glasses every day. I would carry out some research to see exactly what this is for youself but that’s a good rule of thumb.
When you’re dehydrated you’re saliva levels drop, which really isn’t good. Saliva is what controls the activity of bacteria and fungi in your mouth, and if you’re running low then this bacteria will have freedom to thrive.
Which makes the development of tonsil stones more likely.
So if you want to prevent them then make sure you get drinking!
Hopefully you don’t find it too difficult to work these into your diet. I would pick one at a time and then gradually make your way through the list, this should make it as easy as possible.
