Making decisions at the grocery store can be challenging when it comes to understanding food labels that read fat-free, no sugar added or sugar-free and hormone-free.

 

There are dozens of misleading claims hiding on our grocery store shelves. Take fat-free creamer. Yes, it’s fat-free, but to compensate for lack of flavour, sugar or sugar substitutes are added.

 

The same for sugar-free items. Fat is added to compensate for lack of sugar like sugar-free Oreos. A regular Oreo has 2 grams of fat, but a sugar-free Oreo has 5 grams of fat.

 

“No sugar added” food labels doesn’t necessarily mean there’s no sugar present, University of Toronto researchers say.

 

Do claims of “no sugar added” and “reduced in sugar” on labels on packaged food and beverage products really mean you’re getting a healthier alternative?

 

Not so much, researchers at the University of Toronto say. In fact, they may not actually have “notable reductions” in calories, and some may even contain sugar amounts that are considered “excess” by the World Health Organization (WHO).

 

“Overall, we found that products with sugar claims were healthier and lower in free sugars, but we also saw examples of products with sugar claims that may conflict with what we know of consumer expectations,” Jodi Bernstein, lead author and PhD student in the department of nutritional sciences, says.

 

“For example, products with a reduced in sugar claim may not have similar reductions in calories and ‘no added sugar’ claims may be found on products that are high in sugars – contrary to what consumer may expect.”

 

“Free sugars are the sugars, syrups and fruit juices that have been removed from their naturally occurring sources of whole fruits, vegetables, dairy products and some grains,” Bernstein explained.

 

“And once removed, these sugars are ‘free’ to be consumed in large quantities and added into foods.”

 

That can lead people to eat more of them, which can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.

 

Upon looking closer, the research team found that almost half of the products examined (48 per cent) had excess free sugar levels.

 

This, Bernstein says, means they had free sugar levels higher than those recommended by WHO – which is a maximum of 10 per cent of calories consumed.

 

“A ‘no sugar added’ claim means that no sugar has been ‘added,’ but that doesn’t mean the product wasn’t high in sugars in the first place,” Bernstein clarifies. “Although fruit juice is considered a free sugar, it doesn’t fall under the Canadian definition of an ‘added sugar.’”

 

According to the Canadian Food and Drug Regulations, labels on food products must “be accurate, truthful and not misleading.” Yet, under these same regulations, fruit juices are commonly considered a fruit ingredient and not a sweetener, researchers say.

 

So in this case, fruit drinks or fruit juice products may still come with a “no sugar added” claim even if they contain excess free sugar.

 

The researchers found excess free sugar in 15 of the 16 fruit preserves and all of the 234 fruit juices and juice drinks they looked at that came with “no sugar added claims.”

 

In total, Bernstein and her team looked at over 3,000 products including puddings, yogurts, cereals, fruit drinks, salad dressings and sweet condiments; 635 of those products had at least one sugar claim.

 

“Canadians are increasingly trying to limit the amount of sugars they eat and only a couple years ago the WHO emerged with guidelines recommending intakes of sugars be limited to reduce the risk of chronic diseases associated with eating too much sugars,” Bernstein says.

 

“It is particularly important that the tools consumers have available to them on the food label, like sugar claims, help guide them to healthier choices that are lower in sugars.”

 

Bernstein hopes that consumers recognize the limitations of these claims when choosing pre-packaged foods and beverages.

 

“Just because a product has a sugar claim doesn’t automatically mean it’s a healthier choice,” she warns.

 

An earlier study published in March by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill came to similar conclusions with no sugar, low-sodium, non-fat and low-fat claims.

 

According to researchers, these claims rarely match the actual nutritional quality of the food and would often have a worse nutritional profile than those without such claims.

 

Whole foods a better approach

 

Vancouver-based registered dietitian Lindsay Pleskot, who is not affiliated with the research, agreed that claims about “added sugar” and “reduced sugar” can be confusing or misleading for consumers.

 

‘Just because a product has a sugar claim or fat claim or sodium claim, doesn’t mean it’s automatically a healthier choice,’ says the study’s lead author, registered dietitian and PhD candidate Jodi Bernstein. (Jodi Bernstein)

 

For people struggling to navigate labelling on packaged foods, Pleskot suggested opting for more whole foods — single-ingredient foods like vegetables and fruit — and eating at home more often.

 

“This way they don’t need to worry about being a detective and having to scrutinize packaging,” she said.

 

Pleskot praised the research, saying the findings could be helpful in influencing policy.

 

That’s Bernstein’s hope as well. She said regulations could be improved to ensure the claims are meeting consumers’ perceptions, and to make sure they’re found on foods that are low in sugars and lower in calories and meet overall health criteria.

 

But in the end, it comes down to what happens in the grocery store.

“Consumers can try to think critically when they see a sugar claim and consider, ‘What is the claim really saying?'” Bernstein said.

This post will discuss about how do scars form, the different types of scar, the 6 scar treatment home remedies you can use to reduce scar visibility and a video clip on how to get rid of scar spot tissue on face and legs.

 

Scars form when there is injury or trauma to the skin, especially when the dermis (the deeper layers of the skin) are injured. Greatly simplified, the process of a scar forming goes roughly like this.

 

Blood rushes to the wound site and begins to clot. Fibroblasts, remarkable little cells that help produce several different types of connective tissues and proteins, begin to deposit the foundation for collagen.

 

Collagen is the main structural protein found in our skin. However, the new collagen that is forming scar tissue is different from regular collagen, and tends to be inferior to ‘normal’ skin in its functioning. Still, it does the job-a pretty impressive one when you think about it.

 

Scar tissue looks different because the collagen that’s being laid down is made up of fibers that lie parallel to each other, instead of the regular randomized cross woven pattern that exists in undamaged skin. The scar tissue is tough, not as elastic or supple, nor do things like sweat glands or hair follicles re-grow in it.

 

Examples of Scar Types

 

Below are a few different types of scars that occur, summed up very simply, with some being more severe than others. How you go about remedying your scars will be easier if you know a bit about the scar itself!

 

Hypertrophic: Hypertrophic scars are raised above the surrounding skin, due to the body overproducing collagen. They typically present themselves as a red, raised, and thickened patches of skin. They often form when there is mechanical tension on the wound. They can fade over a period of two to three years.

 

Keloid: Very thick raised scars, more severe than hypertrophic scars, and may spread beyond the original wound site. They can also develop into benign masses. Keloid scarring, like hypertrophic scars, are raised from excessive amounts of stiff collagen fibers deposited on the wound.

 

Atrophic: The scar is sunken in the skin, giving it a typical “pitted” appearance, caused when underlying structures that support the skin are lost. Acne and diseases such as the chicken pox tend to leave atrophic scars.

 

 

Scars vs. Hyperpigmentation

 

Some of these remedies apply to hyperpigmentation, which is when extra pigment is deposited at the wound site. Hyperpigmentation is often seen in times after a bad bout with acne, and can give the appearance of there being a mark or scar.

 

How Best to Reduce Scar Visibility Naturally?

 

Different treatments and remedies and their results vary hugely from individual to individual, as it all depends on genetics, how you got the scar, how long you’ve had it, etc. So don’t be afraid to play around with these to see what works best!

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #1 – Marula Oil

 

Long, long before it became mainstream, marula oil was used traditionally used by the Tsonga people of South Africa and Mozambique, where it is still used by many peoples in that region.

 

Marula oil is used for skin care-as a cleansing or massage oil, as a moisturizer- and even a dietary supplement. From food to medicine, the marula tree and the oil from its fruits have a long history of being extensively used.

 

The oil comes from harvested fruits that hold a nut, inside which rests a kernel. The oil is extracted from this kernel, and a considerable amount of work goes into the extraction process given the tough fibrous make-up of the nut. Once removed, the kernel is cold-pressed by hand for the oil, resulting in a small quantity the precious stuff.

 

The oil is extremely light, silky, absorbs quickly into the skin, and penetrates deeply. It has many uses, but in the case of scars it reduces redness and inflammation, and softens up the tough tissue.

 

The oleic acid enhances the ability of the oil to penetrate the skin, allowing other fatty acids to soak in and do their work. Use it plain or as a base oil-I’ll frequently add it to my scar butter.

 

You will need…

-Marula Oil

 

Directions

 

Rinse the scar and the area around it with warm water. Pat dry. Start with less oil and add more as you need it-if I plan on rubbing it in some I use more, if I am putting it on and letting it soak in on its own I use a little less. You don’t need much, just enough to cover the scar well. Reapply up to three times daily (or as needed.)

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #2 – Baobab Oil

 

This precious oil, like Marula oil, is high in essential fatty acids. 33% of the seed content is oil, with the majority of those oils being oleic and linoleic.  Oleic and linoleic will soften skin-in this case, the tough scar tissue-and moisturize the epidermis, where the visible part of your scar sits.

 

All of the fatty acids help regenerate outer epithelial tissues (basically, the cells that make up the outside of your skin), which is part of why it is so renowned for its abilities to heal our skin and reduce scars. It is thick and rich and remains on the skin longer after application. Again, use it as a base or a carrier or on its own!

 

You will need…

 

-Baobab Oil

 

Directions

 

Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry. Apply a light coating of enough baobab oil to cover the scar. Remember that it will sit on the skin for a while after application.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #3 – Fenugreek Paste

 

Fenugreek was always one of those remedies that I just steered clear of. Not because of any fault of its own-for some reason the name just always deterred me. But, eventually, I was able to get over that quirk of mine, and now find it a useful ingredient to have lying around.

 

Fenugreek is used for a range of ailments, from easing indigestion to reducing dandruff. It can also help with skin inflammation and irritation, such as that which may occur with a scar.

 

Anecdotal evidence suggests that it also helps to lighten skin, thus reducing the appearance of the scar or hyperpigmentation. In this case, making the seeds into a paste is the most effective way of getting their benefit.

 

You will need –

 

-Fenugreek seeds
-Warm water
-Something to grind up the seeds

 

Directions

 

How much fenugreek you’ll need depends entirely on the size of the scar. Start with a tablespoon or two, and if there is extra store in the fridge for up to three days.

Soak the seeds overnight in warm water, or until they are soft (even “slimy”) feeling. Drain and mash them up into a paste-a mortar and pestle works best for this.

 

If the mash is too thick, you can add just a smidge of warm water at a time until it is the proper consistency-thick but easily spreadable, not runny.

 

Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry. Apply enough to cover the scar and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

I would suggest using your favorite lotion/moisturizer after this as it can be drying.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #4 – Fish Oil

 

Ah, fish oil. It’s one of those “it’ll cure whatever ails ya” remedies. Rich in our favorite fatty acids, fish oil taken in the diet and applied directly to scars can help reduce their appearance.

 

Some research has been done showing that they may even speed of the breakdown of fibroblasts, which are responsible for laying down all that extra collagen, even in scars as severe as keloids.

 

If you can take it as a dietary supplement, I always say go for it. It’s worth trying topically as well. Fibroblasts aside, it will moisturize the scar well and moisturizing means a better environment for healing to take place.

 

You will need…

 

-A high quality fish oil

 

Directions

 

Apply fish oil directly to the scar and/or take the appropriate dosage for a dietary supplement.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #5 – Lemon Juice

 

This one should come as no surprise. Lemon juice, in addition to having other benefits, is known to lighten skin. This is because it is thought to interrupt melanogenesis-basically the process in which melanin, the pigment that darkens skin, is formed.

 

It is also thought to reduce or break down the existing melanin in the skin as well. Be careful after applying lemon juice as it can make you a bit more sensitive to the sun for a bit after using it.

 

You will need…

 

-1 fresh lemon

 

Directions

 

Juice the lemon. Rinse the affected area and then apply directly. Do this up to twice a day as needed and be patient, as it isn’t instantaneous. Keep the leftover juice in the fridge for later use.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #6 – Sunscreen or Cover Up

 

This is more of a (very helpful) preventative rather than a remedy. When the sun- chiefly its ultraviolet rays-hits your skin, it damages it. Your body, well-equipped as always, rushes to defend and protect your sensitive skin by depositing melanin, a darker pigment that will give more protection against the harmful rays.

 

The skin of your scar is sensitive and will darken easily, so cover up or use sunscreen, and you can help prevent any burns or unwanted melanin making it more visible. Tanning or getting sunburned will ultimately not help your cause!

 

You will need…

 

-Sunscreen that is at least SPF 30

 

Directions

 

Apply sunscreen to the scar before exposing it to sunlight or keep it covered.

 

And above all else…

 

Be patient. There is no current natural remedy or medical technology that can guarantee the complete removal of a scar. Although some may certainly helpful, our bodies are pretty incredible of doing the job.

 

Trust in your body – it knows what it’s doing! When it comes to badly damaged or non-regenerable tissues, they are replaced by the laying down of connective tissue (think collagen!) This is a process called replacement-also known as scarring.

 

Regeneration is a type of healing in which new growth can completely bring back at least portions of damaged tissue to its normal state. Most of the time these two occur in tandem during the healing process.

 

Over the course of 2 sometimes up to 3 years the scar will continue to heal, replacing and regenerating. So don’t panic about a scar. Get a little help from some good remedies, trust your body and time, be patient, and all will heal.

Could facial yoga be the key to younger-looking skin?

The health and beauty benefits of practicing yoga have been well documented. But did you know that stretching it all out could be just as good for your face?

 

Facial Yoga has been making a name for itself as an alternative anti-aging beauty treatment for some time now. The concept involves using exercises to tone, lift and sculpt muscles in the face and counteract sagginess and puffiness for a rejuvenated appearance.

 

Back in 2015, a pop-up called SkinGym Face Fitness established itself in New York offering a workout called ‘Face Love’. Its U.K. equivalent, FaceGym, is still going strong, with a location in the London’s flagship Selfridges department store as well as a stand-alone studio in the capital.

 

FaceGym describes itself as “the U.K.’s only gym studio for the face and the original non-invasive face workout“, offering clients the chance to have their muscles stretched and sculpted by dedicated ‘face trainers’.

 

This year, the trend reached L.A. too, thanks to the city’s new Skin Fit Gym, which hosts dedicated face training classes for individuals and groups.

 

“Face workouts are the new facials,” says FaceGym’s founder, Inge Theron.

 

But what if you can’t get to a brick-and-mortar studio for a session?

 

Luckily, facial workouts are also thriving online, giving rise to gurus like British ‘Face Yoga Expert’ Danielle Collins, who guides followers through various facial exercises via a series of YouTube tutorials.

 

One of Collins’ most popular videos, published this March, is aimed at smoothing out frown lines. She suggests gently massaging the area between the eyebrows, as well as lightly tapping the forehead and gently pinching and pulling at the eyebrows to relieve tension and help stimulate the production of collagen.

 

FaceGym also published an article this April detailing a series of DIY facial exercises that can aid lymphatic drainage and reduce the appearance of under-eye circles.

 

Is facial yoga set to become a mainstream beauty trend? It remains to be seen, but when it comes to working out, maybe we could all use a little extra face time.

Who Can Be Affected By Tonsil Stones?


Who Can Be Affected By Tonsil Stones? Individuals who are most commonly affected by tonsil stones are those with large tonsils and deep tonsillar crypts, as they are more prone to the accumulation of food particles and debris near the back of their throat.
Click on HERE to Find Out about this 100% Natural Tonsil Stones Remedy

Tonsil stones can affect a wide variety of individuals, regardless of gender or ethnicity. These pale, oval-shaped masses are made of food particles, dead cells, and microorganisms that combine with saliva on the surface of your palatine tonsils.

 

Tonsil stones occur when these materials decay and calcify into hardened pellets in mucosal pits along the surface of the tonsils; these pits are commonly referred to as the tonsillar crypts.

 

Although anyone can experience tonsil stones, this condition is most commonly seen in young adults who have a history of recurrent throat infections and inflammation.

 

Individuals who are most commonly affected by tonsil stones are those with large tonsils and deep tonsillar crypts, as they are more prone to the accumulation of food particles and debris near the back of their throat.

 

People are especially affected by tonsil stones if they suffer from recurrent episodes of tonsillitis, as repeated bouts of inflammation in the tonsils can facilitate the accumulation of debris in the tonsillar crypts.

 

Additionally, those who fail to maintain healthy oral-hygiene habits are also prone to the development of tonsil stones. This is due to the increased build-up of food particles and other forms of debris in the mouth.

 

If these substances are not removed regularly by frequent flossing, brushing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash, tonsil stones are more likely to develop and may persist.

 

Recent studies have also demonstrated a link between persistent postnasal drip and tonsil-stone formation. This correlation is likely because of the increased mucus drainage into the throat experienced by these patients, which can facilitate the development of tonsil stones.

 

Although tonsil stones are most common in adults, they are not usually observed in children or infants.

 

Not all individuals who are affected by tonsil stones have noticeable symptoms. In fact, most people who experience this condition display no associated symptoms or side effects.

 

Some patients, however, suffer from symptoms such as a chronic sore throat, bad breath, earaches, difficulty swallowing, and visible white spots on their tonsils.

 

If you suspect you are affected by tonsil stones, see your doctor or an ear, nose, and throat specialist for an oral examination. He or she can suggest helpful at-home remedies and other forms of treatment.

What Are Tonsils And Tonsil Stones?


What Are Tonsils And Tonsil Stones? The tonsils function as the body's initial line of defense in the mouth. As integral parts of the immune system, these structures protect the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts by attacking any viruses, bacteria, and debris that enter the mouth.

The tonsils function as the body’s initial line of defense in the mouth. As integral parts of the immune system, these structures protect the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts by attacking any viruses, bacteria, and debris that enter the mouth.

 

Your primary tonsils (the palatine tonsils) are located at the back of the throat, on the left and ride sides respectively. The adenoids (the pharyngeal tonsils) are near the nasal cavity, and the lingual tonsils are at the back of the throat. These structures can develop complications like tonsil stones.

 

Many people undergo treatments for issues related to tonsil stones, as these lymphatic organs sometimes act as more of a liability to your health than an asset. When infection occurs, the tonsils can create significant health problems such as airway obstruction and greater susceptibility to repeated infections.

 

Each tonsil is composed of an intricate network of crypts that contain cells that fight infection. If a foreign substance like a virus or a bacterium infects these crypts, the tonsils can trap the debris. Once the debris is trapped, it can combine with mucous from the throat or postnasal area and become concentrated into tonsil stones.

 

Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are the result of the trapped debris that has hardened inside crypts in the tonsils. These stones can be smelly and look like small, white chunks. They may sometimes become loosened and coughed up into the mouth.

 

Individuals who suffer from chronic inflammation in their tonsils or repeated tonsillitis are the most at risk for experiencing tonsil stones, since frequent infections can cause the tonsils to become swollen, red, and inflamed continuously.

 

If you are experiencing symptoms such as a sore throat, bad breath, or breathing issues, see your doctor or an ear, nose, and throat specialist. He or she can examine your head, neck, and mouth to determine the cause of your symptoms.

 

If he or she observes that your tonsils are enlarged and have white, hardened stones, your healthcare provider may recommend the surgical removal of the stones. In some cases, the tonsils themselves may need to be removed to prevent frequent infections and stone-formation.

How to Treat Tonsilloliths In Children


How to Treat Tonsilloliths In Children - Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are a common condition that affects many individuals worldwide. Although adults and adolescents are the most likely groups to develop tonsil stones, younger children may also experience the formation of tonsilloliths and suffer from related symptoms.

Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are a common condition that affects many individuals worldwide. Although adults and adolescents are the most likely groups to develop tonsil stones, younger children may also experience the formation of tonsilloliths and suffer from related symptoms.

 

Tonsilloliths occur when bits of debris such as dead cellular materials, food particles, and foreign pathogens accumulate in the crevices of the palatine tonsils. These lymphatic organs are positioned on either side of the back of your throat.

 

The tonsils are responsible for defending the throat against harmful microorganisms and for filtering lymphatic fluid. A layer of pink mucosa covers the surface of the tonsils, containing pits and channels that are referred to as the tonsillar crypts.

 

When large amounts of debris and other substances accumulate in the tonsillar crypts, the resulting material can combine with saliva and begin to decay. The decaying material then calcifies into small, pale-colored tonsil stones.

 

Babies and small children rarely experience tonsil-stone formation. Those who do develop this condition may not demonstrate noticeable effects, as the majority of tonsil stones are small and asymptomatic.

 

However, if you notice that your child is suffering from a chronic sore throat, frequent earaches, pain or difficulty swallowing, or persistent bad breath, he or she may be experiencing problematic tonsil stones.

 

Tonsil stones are especially common for children who have repeated bouts of tonsillitis. This may contribute to more severe symptoms, since a child’s tonsil are very large in proportion to the size of his or her throat. As a child matures, however, his or her tonsils usually shrink.

 

If you suspect that your child may be suffering from tonsillitis or tonsil stones, see your family doctor or pediatrician for an oral examination. He or she can remove any visible tonsil stones and may provide an antibiotic to reduce bacterial inflammation.

 

Your doctor may also recommend that your child see an ear, nose, and throat specialist if his or her symptoms persist or worsen. Surgical treatment is almost never required for tonsil stones, but if the condition persists and causes concern, your doctor may recommend a tonsillectomy to prevent further complications and discomfort.

When is Surgery for Treating Tonsil Stones Necessary?


When is Surgery for Treating Tonsil Stones Necessary? Because tonsil stones frequently reappear despite your best efforts to treat or to prevent them, surgery for treating tonsil stones is the only way to be rid of problematic tonsil stones forever.

Many individuals experience the common condition of tonsil-stone formation. Although this disorder is not medically serious, it can lead to bothersome symptoms and discomfort for some patients.

 

Because tonsil stones frequently reappear despite your best efforts to treat or to prevent them, surgery for treating tonsil stones is the only way to be rid of problematic tonsil stones forever.

 

Tonsil stones form when debris such as food particles, dead cellular material, mucus, and foreign pathogens accumulate on the surface of the palatine tonsils.

 

Your tonsils are two oval-shaped lymphatic organs that are located on either side of the back of your throat. A layer of pink mucosa containing pits and channels covers the surface of your tonsils.

 

These crevices are known as the tonsillar crypts, and they vary in size depending on your genetics and certain pre-existing health conditions. Once debris accumulates in the tonsillar crypts, it begins to decay and calcify into small, pale-colored masses.

 

Most individuals who develop tonsil stones do not experience significant side effects, as the majority of tonsil stones are small and not bothersome.

 

In rare cases, however, patients may suffer from unpleasant symptoms such as painful swallowing, a chronic sore throat, earaches, persistent bad breath, and swollen tonsils.

 

Even though these symptoms are uncomfortable and problematic, they are rarely dangerous and do not harm your overall health.

 

If you are concerned about your tonsil stones, see your doctor for an examination. He or she can remove any visible tonsil stones during your visit and may suggest various options for treating tonsil stones to reduce your symptoms.

 

If these methods are not effective for you, then you may need to see an ear, nose, and throat specialist to discuss potential surgery for treating tonsil stones.

 

Surgical methods for treating tonsil stones may involve the removal of any large or particularly bothersome stones. Alternatively, you may need to have your tonsils removed entirely if they are chronically inflamed. This procedure is called a tonsillectomy, and it involves the removal of both palatine tonsils.

 

Patients usually recover from having a tonsillectomy within two weeks. As with any surgical procedure, tonsillectomy may involve risks such as bleeding, swelling, infection, and reactions to anesthetics. Your doctor can help you make the best decision about surgery for your health needs.

Here is What You Should Know about Diagnosing Tonsil Stones


Here is What You Should Know about Diagnosing Tonsil Stones - Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are formed when decaying material is trapped in the crevices of your tonsils. Most people have small tonsil stones that do not cause noticeable symptoms. As a result, this condition is often discovered incidentally via X-rays or CT scans during the process of diagnosing tonsil stones.

Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are formed when decaying material is trapped in the crevices of your tonsils. Most people have small tonsil stones that do not cause noticeable symptoms. As a result, this condition is often discovered incidentally via X-rays or CT scans during the process of diagnosing tonsil stones.

 

Your tonsils (the palatine tonsils) are two, oval-shaped lymphatic organs that are located on either side of the back of your throat. Each tonsil is covered by a surface of pink mucosa, which contains small pits and channels that are known as the tonsillar crypts.

 

Debris such as food particles, dead cells, mucus, and microorganisms like viruses and bacteria can accumulate in these crypts. Once these materials begin to decay, they can become concentrated into round, pale tonsil stones.

 

Anyone can develop tonsil stones. However, this condition is most common in children and young adults who have a history of persistent throat infections. In general, tonsil stones do not create noticeable symptoms.

 

Some patients with larger, solidified tonsil stones may experience symptoms such as bad breath, recurrent sore throat, swollen tonsils, difficulty swallowing, and earaches. Visible white debris is also noted among some individuals with larger tonsil stones as well.

 

While many individuals develop small tonsil stones repeatedly, only a few patients suffer from large, solidified tonsil stones. Those who do experience this latter, more-problematic form of tonsil stones are often unaware of the cause of their discomfort.

 

In diagnosing tonsil stones, your family doctor usually makes an official diagnosis during an oral examination of your throat. Sometimes, he or she may order additional imaging studies to confirm this diagnosis and to pinpoint the size and location of the tonsil stones.

 

If you suspect that you may be experiencing tonsil stones, see your doctor for an oral examination. In the process of diagnosing tonsil stones, he or she can determine whether you have this condition and can suggest treatments to help you manage your symptoms.

 

In most cases, your tonsil stones will not create any significant symptoms or long-term health issues, and therefore no substantial treatment or surgery will be necessary after your diagnosis. For patients with recurrent, problematic tonsil stones, however, the tonsils may require more extensive diagnosing tonsil stones methods such as a tonsillectomy.
