castor oil packs: a natural way to get rid of tonsil stones entirely

Have you looked at the back of your throat lately? Have you ever seen white, or yellow looking spots on your tonsils? If you have, then unfortunately you are probably a sufferer of tonsil stones or tonsilloliths. When I turned 17 I found my self occasionally spitting out foul smelling stones, not realizing why this had started or what these were. Eventually I realized the link between having strep throat and in turn having cryptic tonsils. Due to having strep throat multiple times in high school, my tonsils became cryptic and created the perfect environment for tonsil stones to form.

Tonsil stones are known to form when debris such as food particles, get lodged in the crevices of your tonsils and sit there, eventually calcifying or hardening. This can make for an uncomfortable situation as your tonsils are close to your ears, lymph nodes, and throat. They can also be difficult and painful to remove. If you have tried to remove them yourself then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

A couple weeks ago I noticed that my lymph nodes under my neck were hurting and felt much more swollen than usual, so I thought that I might be getting sick. I decided to try out a castor oil pack as I had recently purchased a bottle of Organic Heritage Castor Oil due to hearing great things about it. Edgar Casey, a medical psychic who found many effective natural cures in his lifetime, found that castor oil cured a multitude of ailments. Some of which include hair growth, dandruff, antifungal, antibacterial, sunburn, galbladder stones, scars, excema, arthritis, ringworm, warts, moles, and immune system boosting.

After researching all the great benefits of castor oil packs, I decided it was worth a shot to see if my lymph node pain and swelling would go away. I took my wool flannel cloth, soaked it in castor oil, wrapped it with cling wrap, put it to my neck with the heating pad on high and waited about an hour. I didn't have any immediate relief, and when I woke up the next day, I was disappointed to find that my lymph nodes still felt swollen.

I almost lost faith in all the amazing stories I had heard about castor oil packs, that is until I brushed my teeth the next night. When I looked at the back of my throat I saw more stones back there than ever. They were also much larger than they usually appear, as previously I'd have to push on my tonsils to even see them. I took the end of my tooth brush and very lightly applied pressure to my tonsils. I was amazed at how easily and quickly the stones came out in their entirety. It has been weeks since that day, and I still haven't had lymph node pain, throat pain, or seen another stone in my tonsils since.

It appears that the castor oil pack is actually effective in helping to draw out tonsil stones. Seeing how castor oil packs are effective for gallbladder stones and kidney stones; I suppose it makes sense now why they were effective for my tonsil stones also. It seems the properties in the oil combined with a wool flannel cloth and heat help to draw out unwanted toxins and blocked channels throughout the body. Before this, I had tried many remedies to try and rid myself of these tortuous tonsil stones to no avail. I had never heard of castor oil packs as a remedy for tonsil stones, even though there was clearly a long list of benefits from using them. So when this worked for me, I was very excited and relieved. I feel the need to share this information with the rest of the world because I know how cumbersome tonsil stones can be. I know that every body is different and that things that work for some people might not work for others, but If you are suffering from tonsil stones and have tried other remedies, it might just be worth it to give castor oil packs a try.

      I recently just found out what these where. All these years in health and wellness and I had no idea until my daughter had her tonsils out after long battles with strep. Thanks for writing on a non-surgical way to deal with this "yucky" problem that many people know nothing about!
