Acid Reflux and tonsil stones: Is there any possible connection?

Acid Reflux tonsil stones: Is there any possible connection?

You brush almost daily..

Not maybe best, but you even maintain the oral hygiene..

Then why are you getting these tonsil stones in the throat?

Maybe it’s due to your intense acid reflux (GERD) and heartburn? So, what is the actual truth? Is there any possible connection between your acid reflux (LPR) and tonsil stones?

First things first, What is an Acid reflux?

As the name suggests acid reflux is nothing but the reflux(push) of the stomach gases and other contents into your esophagus and throat. Let me explain you more briefly.

whenever you eat any food, the muscle near the esophagus namely lower esophageal sphincter(LES) opens up for allowing the food to go inside the stomach. As soon as the food goes inside the stomach this LES again closes up preventing the food from coming back.

acid reflux and tonsil stones

Now, at times when this LES fail to function and doesn’t close up properly, then such a condition is called an acid reflux.

Acid reflux is one of the common digestive problems and causes an intense heartburn for an individual.

So Is there a connection between Acid reflux(GERD) and Tonsil stones?

Though many people and doctors don’t know the answer to this question..

The simple answer to this question is Yes. Not only tonsil stones are related to acid reflux but also many tonsil and throat problems are somehow related to acid reflux.

So How is this happening?

Do you know this one common symptom of Acid reflux?

Though many people see heartburn and difficulty swallowing as the symptoms of the tonsil stones, what they ignore is another crucial symptom of GERD disease. It is the mucus.

Yes, mucus is one of the most common symptoms of acid reflux what many people think is a small problem.

But in reality, this mucus alone is causing tonsil stones in your mouth.

Here is the Step by step process that is happening in your body due to Acid reflux..

  1. If you have the GERD disease (Acid reflux problem), when you eat food, your LES will not function properly and thus fail to close properly.
  2. This results in the stomach acids coming up and entering back into the throat.
  3. Once the stomach acids flush back into the esophagus and throat, they cause swelling in the throat and in turn resulting in the accumulation of mucus day after day.
  4. This accumulated mucus slowly drips down and slowly settles down in the throat which we call as the “post nasal dripacid reflux post nasal drip and tonsil stonesImage:crazyhealthplan
  5. So when you have the post nasal drip the mucus gets accumulated and settles on your tonsillar crypts.
  6. As tonsils act as barriers for stopping bacteria and viruses, the microbes which entered acts upon the already accumulating mucus day after day.
  7. Thus this process continues for a few days, finally forming a stone like structure on your tonsils commonly known as “The Tonsil stone”

This is how an acid reflux is indirectly causing tonsil stones in your throat.

Many recent studies even confirmed that this entire process of acid reflux, post nasal drip, and mucus accumulation may even result in a number of problems including a sore throat, strep throat, tons of tonsil stones etc. See How to get rid of my tonsil stones Quickly tonight?

Now, Don’t get confused with the symptoms of Acid reflux and Tonsil stones:

The Symptoms of acid reflux includes a severe bad breath, swollen tonsils, sore throat, post nasal drip etc. On the other hand tonsil stones too share the same set of symptoms as the acid reflux.

Thus you need to be careful before coming to a conclusion. You need to remember that it is possible to have severe acid reflux, post nasal drip but doesn’t have tonsil stones. So tonsil stones are just one outcome of acid reflux.

So go for the treatment of tonsil stones only if you are sure that you have tonsil stones present in your throat. See A clear-cut tonsil stones diagnosis and its symptoms in throat

Big doubt: “Can I solve my Acid reflux problems by removing my tonsils and solving tonsil problems”?

This is another big doubt that many people ask who have both acid reflux and tonsil stones problems.

For the answer, You need to remember this chain..

Acid Reflux -> causing Mucus -> Causing Tonsil stones

So in simple Acid reflux is causing your tonsil stones and other tonsil problem. But it not the tonsil stones causing your acid reflux and heartburn.

So what is the use of removing the tonsils and just dreaming that you could solve your acid reflux problem?

Yes, I agree that removing the tonsils can solve the problems related to tonsils and throat, but on the other hand, it cannot solve the underlying acid reflux. Thus the acid reflux continues to trouble you and just manifests in other forms of problems in your body.

So the answer to this question is simply “No”. See Should I Get my Tonsils removed? Is it the best way out?

So what should I do now? How to get rid of my acid reflux (LPR) and Tonsil stones?

With having both acid reflux tonsil stones, you need to follow a 3-step process –

Step 1: Physically removing the Tonsil stones first

GERD and tonsil stones

This is the first thing I strongly suggest to everyone. This is because just by ignoring the tonsil stones in your throat complicates everything, as you will soon start to see other problems and complications related to tonsil stones.

So once you remove the tonsil stone, you will stop all other complications related to tonsil stones and all you need to deal with is just your acid reflux.

In my book “Tonsil stones eliminator” I mentioned that after removing your tonsil stone physically, you must definitely stop the mucus and post nasal drip. This is because only doing so can permanently stop your mucus and recurring tonsil stones.

You can follow any of the natural methods I teach to clear off this mucus present in your throat. So once you clear your mucus in your throat and tonsils, all your tonsil problems come to an end and your tonsil stones won’t come back again. See “I am getting these stones again and again” What should I do?

Step 3: Getting rid of Acid Reflux (LPR):

Laryngopharyngeal reflux

Thus once you put an end to your tonsil stones, all you need to do now is removing the root cause causing the mucus and tonsil stones. That is solving the acid reflux.

Acid reflux is a lifestyle problem that is caused by various reasons like food habits, obesity, smoking, pregnancy etc. So by changing your habits, you can gradually stop the wrong functioning of your esophagus muscle thus putting an end to acid reflux

Thus following this 3 step process, is the surest way you can fight back your problem of acid reflux and tonsil stones.


Your acid reflux is already forming tonsil stones in your throat.

Within few days, these stones start getting bigger and bigger while giving a heavy foul smelling bad breath.

Moreover, your producing mucus forms tonsil stones, again and again, until your tonsil tissues become completely gross and horrible.
