I found this forum looking for the xylitol / lactoferrin protocol.
Why? I suspect biofilms in my upper throat and looking for something to break it up.
I have been passing "stones" - tonsil stones is what I was told by one ENT. I am not sure they aren't parotid stones or a mixture of both. But I have a constantly clogged left ear and it gets painful as the day goes on. With it comes some sinus mucus, drainage like gobs of saliva, and headache around the left eye. I get brain fog with it too by evening most days. The stones come and go but I think they are part of the whole picture.
In the mean time I am sure my gut has problems and with what I am doing I am passing some more solid greenish mucoid stools.
I realize now tonsil stones are a biofilm; at least my supposition this past couple years of a gob of mucus stuck up on top of the tonsils which no doctor seems to understand makes sense.
So I am here looking for suggestions, ideas, etc.
As far as the gut goes, I started having more diarrhea after a round of antibiotics in Dec; the stools were tested by a mainstream lab and I was given an all okay on it. I refused a second round of antibiotics. These were for an alleged ethmoid sinus infection that showed up on CT scan. The ear area was clear.
If I take a dose of bentonite and pysllium I can get more solid stools but still not great. I do take a lot of magnesium and that might be part of it.
I can add more as I think of it - I am doing low oxalate, trying to do low salicylate, and try to minimize free glutamate diet. I do have bad burning mouth syndrome. I am F in my 60's.
