Tonsil Stones: Removing the Deeper Cause webfi


  • @ashleys562 on May 4, 2024

    If you're taking 10000IU Vit.D you need to get your lab work done regularily to make sure you're not overdosing yourself. I usually hear most providers recommend 2000iu maintenance dose Vit.D.

    I’d get them after eating French fries, usually McDs bullshit “fries”

    I just started getting tonsil stones out of nowhere about a year ago (I am now 24). Nothing in my diet or lifestyle has changed. So I’m so confused why I just started getting them. I find one in my throat about once a month. They are small but I can feel them when I swallow. It feels like a popcorn kernel stuck.

  • @bonnieanderson1502 on May 4, 2024

    I actually had my tonsils removed because of this problem, and the fact that I was getting sick many times a year, around age 30. Ten years later, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. No more tonsil stones, almost NEVER get sick. Tonsil removal is a good thing imo.

    I got tonsil stones while pregnant

  • @caerbenogg on May 4, 2024

    I have very good Vitamin D levels but still get these stones. Did not understand if this is an infection?

  • @damattice23 on May 4, 2024

    I’ve never had an issue until living in this house. So hope this vid tells me something. This year I gave up fast food, soda, and alcohol. Exercising 5 days a week. Still coughing and struggling with stones.

    Berg you’ve done it again every time I look for help you provide

  • @AnthonyWilliam-hh9nj on May 5, 2024

    I am so greatful to Dr Oseghale Sunday Herbal Home I have been cured from Hsv2 Dr Oseghale Sunday Herbal Home given me this opportunity I’ll remember you perfectly the way you are sir.

    DR Berg kinda went off the rails with this one. These tonsil stones are from eating hot greasy food like fresh fries from a fast food joint or hot cheeseburger. They're awful in smell because grease is awful and smells horrible. Ever walk by a restaurant? Many of them have grease dumpsters… and you can definitely smell them from a long way away with the right wind. Tonsil stones can get cleared off by using a non pointy utensil, heavily sterilized, and just gently prod them out of place from the bottom up. Spit them in the toilet or the trash.

    Finished two courses of antibiotics for supposed ear infection. Nerve issues randomly, ear, teeth. One tonsil keeps getting whitish stuff in pockets then clears. Same side throat sore, ear pressure. Have pnd and allergies. Now mouth ulcer under tongue as I'm biting. Tongue as missing tooth. Some sinus swelling but nose is fine. Tonsil clears then few days later same thing. Gargling salt water twice a day. Any advice.

    I have a terrible habit to eat milk powder dry. I always keep some for baking and emergency. Then the powder forms a stone and it feels like a rock stuck in there. Sometimes a seed from wholegrain bread etc so not always the milk powder. I use a water floss tool from Philips (Sonicare) to blast my tonsils clean. Nothing else works. No amount of gargling etc.

  • @sonnybaker8100 on May 8, 2024

    Vitamin D deficiency? I get tonsil stones and my vitamin D is at 90.9 ng/mL. Yes, I take a LOT of vitamin D…and I NEVER get sick. Not even when my kids are sick. But I do get tonsil stones. Dammit.

  • @mamawahl9623 on May 9, 2024

    I just popped out a bunch yesterday. They smell like mothballs. Anyways, I have chronic allergies and always associated them from allergies. I do take 5,000 iu k2 daily. I’ve had Multiple Sclerosis for over 20 years now. 🤔

  • @jonthompson1068 on May 9, 2024

    I feel like getting the kids off milk reduces the calcium in their diet which could lead to less stones. When I supplemented with calcium carbonate (which is the form in milk) I would get a lot more stones than I do now.

  • @Lilydee on May 10, 2024

    I don’t understand why a phd laureate portrait himself as a medical doctor. It can be misleading

  • @AuzziTravels on May 10, 2024

    lol not immigration good one

  • @mohammedmohammed-nq4yq on May 11, 2024

    You not only love your work but you also show care and comfort to all your patients, I want to thank you for the extra time you took to ensure my infection is completely gone. Your medication worked successfully, Thank you, DoctorOrias

  • @Psychx_ on May 13, 2024

    My tonsils were removed when I was 6yo, because by then I have had strep throat so often that I had already gone through several liters of penicillin solution. As a teenager, I picked up a tobacco habbit, but since stopping smoking, my succeptibility to respiratory tract infections went way down to an average or slightly better than average level. The lymph nodes at the front/side of my neck right below the jawline have massively grown in size following the surgery and are seemingly compensating for the lost tonsils. Autoimmune diseases: 0 until now (30yo).

  • @Psychx_ on May 13, 2024

    You know what's the most common complication of viral tonsil infection? Bacterial superinfection! So even if it starts as a virus, the patient is likely to require ABs at some point. Also ppl with EBV will have fever and pronounced general symptoms of sickness lasting for weeks. It's unlikely for EBV to be mistaken with a bacterial infection right from the get-go.

  • @Psychx_ on May 13, 2024

    Reducing pain and swelling of an infection using NSAIDs does not hinder the immune system from building acquired immunity! Antigen presentation, plasma- and memory-cell formation, aswell as antibody production get kickstarted regardless and that process will be ongoing as long as the bacteria causing it (or cell fragments of them) are present. TLR activation doesn't get impaired either.

  • @yulianilsson8351 on May 13, 2024

    OMG, I wish I knew it when I was little…. I grew up in Russian and, oh God, what doctors did to me that time to remove those stones…. I don’t even want to remember it… and NOW I know and really understand that I had a huge lack of vitamin D….

  • @marysh3840 on May 14, 2024

    Thank you, Dear Dr. Berg.

  • @vaidozaa on May 16, 2024

    each case should be evaluated by specialists… but I categorically disagree with this doctor's opinion… because in the presence of swollen tonsils, they usually do not provide any protection, but only accumulate and grow bacteria and viruses, develop a bad bite, and hearing problems may occur due to a strained eardrum, restricted breathing problems, snoring, apnea and other things…

  • @user-il1nx9bl9z on May 17, 2024

    There is so many vids n they influence persons to get surgery n their tonsils cut out

  • @cbrstar7145 on May 19, 2024

    I got my tonsils removed as an adult, and I never felt better. Before I had tonsil stones, and would get tonsillitis over 12x a year! I was constantly sick. I wish I had them out sooner as a kid.

  • @JNM11787 on May 22, 2024

    Still have my tonsils. Id get small ones from time to time as a kid. I rarely have them now though. I think the tobacco spitting and pulling up phlegm keeps em empty. Its gross, but it seems to work. Drinking vodka is also like mouthwash too 😀

    Bad habbits can have their perks too

  • @vickyjim7750 on May 23, 2024

    It has bothered for yrs especially bad breath

  • @kristinedugger175 on May 24, 2024

    Dehydration contributes to tonsil stones.

  • @DK.Gaming709 on May 28, 2024

    I get these all the time. I've had CKD. Did 2.5 years of hemodialysis and I'm currently 2 years post renal transplant. My vitamin D is low. I'm on 3000mg a day

  • @TravelTimeChannel on May 31, 2024

    Doctor Berg, can you please make an informative video about the people that suffer from Lipomas??
    There is not a informative video about that and a lot of people suffer from it but there is nothing to do about it. A little help would be appreciated

  • @AK-iw4bz on May 31, 2024

    What is the therapeutic dose of vitamin D for children?

  • @FatumaNamirembe670 on June 1, 2024

    I use a crochet hook to remove them. But they stink a lot.

  • @JustinaWendy on June 1, 2024

    I recently had this and it was so painful

  • @TruthGirlBoss on June 4, 2024

    Thank you so much I have been trying so hard to fix this issue now I have hope

  • @lesliemcmillan2971 on June 5, 2024

    Nothing I did before getting my tonsils surgically removed ever prevented the stones. So at 32, out they went. Best decision ever, since they were abscessed.
