Tonsil stones is nothing but the condition in which calcium based stones start developing on your tonsils. So the stones need to be eliminated as soon as possible. If not their size slowly start increasing, eventually resulting in a number of tonsil problems.
The problem of Gagging (Gag-Reflex) while removal:
Once you decided to remove the stones, you start searching for various ways of removing the stones. Almost all the techniques taught across the net mainly suggest the removal of stones by physically pulling them out by q-tip or finger etc. See How to get rid of my tonsil stones Quickly tonight?

“I am gagging and coughing as soon as trying to remove the stones by any tool”
Many people feel like nausea and vomit when something like finger, ear bud etc touches the deeper parts of the throat. Even I have this problem.. I can’t even keep my finger deep in my mouth. This is where many people stuck and wonder on how to remove these stones. See The Natural way out for eliminating tonsil stones completely
Home Remedies for removing Tonsil Stones Without Gagging :
Today, I’ll give you the best remedies with which you can remove any number of tonsil stones without the problem of gagging. So you are going to flush out the stones completely without feeling the gag-Reflex.
Remedy 1 – Salt on Tongue Technique
In my book “Tonsil stones eliminator” I explained that gag reflex is basically controlled by the ‘hypothalamus’ of the brain. So use this information to stop the gag reflex.
Place a Q-tip dipped in salt on the edge of your tongue. Thus you are now stimulating the taste sensors. This taste of salt will be handled by the same part of the brain as a reflex, thus giving the hypothalamus a second signal. Thus you will not get any feeling of gagging and eventually you can remove the tonsil stones easily. See Where can I get a step by step clear guidance that helps eliminate my tonsil stones?
Remedy 2 – Grapefruit Seed Extract gargle:
Grapefruit extract has the great qualities of clearing away you tonsil stones naturally. Just follow the steps –
- Take some Grapefruit seed extract which you can buy at any stores
- Now add small quantity of water and dilute the fruit extract
- Now Start gargling the solution as hard as possible such that the fruit extract touches your tonsils.
Repeat the same process atleast 2-3 times a day. This will eventually clear away your existing Tonsil stones.
Remedy 3 – More Water – Less Milk(Dairy):
In cases if your Tonsil stones are still smaller in size, you can try this simple way out. As your stones are still smaller in size, you need not try extensive methods of removal. See An almost way to stop tonsil stones and its bad breath
- Just Increase the water consumption..Drink lots and lots of water for few days
- Decrease the milk consumption…Reduce or completely stop dairy products for a few days.
Though this is a simple method, it worked in cases of many people who are suffering tonsil stones.
Remedy 4 – Breath by Nose:
Yes.. Your nose comes as a saviour now. The prime reason behind the gagging is the air that enters the throat while we are touching the deeper parts of the throat. So just stop this.
Relax for a few minutes before you start the removal process. Then slowly open your mouth. At this step care must be taken that you are not taking the air through your mouth. Just take the air using your nose even when your mouth is open. This practice will definitely decrease the gag-reflex to a large extent. At this time of low gag you can simply remove the existing tonsil stones. See “I am getting these stones again and again” What should I do?
