View Full Version : Water blisters in throat
08-26-2010, 07:08 PM
Anybody ever get tiny water blisters in your throat and on your soft palate? I've had them on and off since I started fighting off a bug over a week ago. I got better and then started feeling something coming on again. And here's another tiny water blister right behind my hard palate. It feels like there's another one on the other side, but farther back where I can't touch it with my tongue.
They eventually pop and are slightly sore for a couple days and then that's it.
I'm guessing it's an immune response, but how weird, and I don't think I've had this before. I thought it might be a detox thing from doing the Healing Code, but energy testing says no.

You have probably seen this, but just in case....
I've never heard of such a thing, but very interesting still.
Maybe it will give you some new ideas of things to Google or energy test for???
Hope you figure it out soon.

Do you know when I started drinking Green Smoothies and TRYING to incorporate only RAW food in my diet I got one of those on the roof of my mouth.....it took a few days but it went away on it's own.....I thought it was a detox reaction since I did have quite a few interesting things happen.

Do you think it's part of the healing process? I wonder if oil pulling would help?

Thanks, Lori! I DO have plenty of post-nasal drip and it makes sense that it could clog up salivary glands. After reading through that, I realize that I've also had recurring ones under my tongue, right as part of those loose little knobby things that must be salivary glands, I guess. Very interesting.
I guess anything can be a healing response. If it's still bugging me when I get back from camping, I'll probably force myself to try oil-pulling. I gave it up a long time ago, because it was such a pain and I didn't really notice any benefits from it. You can bet I'll be energy-testing it first! LOL
My throat feels better this morning, so maybe it's done. I hope so. I really don't have the energy for that right now.

One of the remedies from the Family Herbalist course that I've used on several occasions is for strep throat and other mouth/throat ailments. It consists of minced/crushed garlic, honey, and cayenne pepper. My husband cannot abide the raw garlic, but it has helped me a lot. I am careful to "chew" the concoction to get the most benefit from it before swallowing. And don't rinse it down your throat. The garlic is a natural antibiotic, the cayenne increases blood circulation to the area, and the honey makes it stick to the tissue so it has time to work. The recipe below can be adjusted to your taste. I made a very small batch the first time to see if I could tolerate it, and then I made larger batches at one time. I keep it in a covered glass dish on the counter for the day or so that each of my bigger batches last.
1 tablespoon honey
1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 to 5 cloves of minced garlic
Mix the honey and cayenne together; add the garlic. Take about 1 teaspoon per hour while during waking hours.
By the way, I've been oil pulling daily for about three years and have had good results from it. When you were doing it, did you use oil that you liked? I alternate coconut and sesame, and sometimes add some other more exotic oils to the rotation for variety.
Also, my husband and I have been having a assortment of Herxheimer-type reactions along with The Healing Codes, so this may just be a prelude to your feeling much better.

I'll definitely take a prelude to feeling much better!
I was planning on having a rice dish for lunch that uses LOTS of fresh garlic juice and cayenne. I add it right at the end, so it doesn't cook much, so hopefully that will help.

Violet - GOOD FOR YOU!!
Moyne - Vi's recipe is a winner. I have used it for all throat infections. I hope you feel better soon!

And it's delicious. I mean, I LOVE that stuff!

The thing is, I feel fine, they don't really hurt, they're just aggravating. They feel like a tiny piece of sand or a blackberry seed is stuck in my throat, until they burst.
I'm not sick, no sore throat. Just clogged salivary glands, apparently (the site Lori linked describes my exact symptoms as that).
It's just so strange that there would be nothing else going on. I don't believe I have any infection. I'm starting to wonder if I'm having a weird allergic reaction to something. As I'm typing this, I'm realizing that I started a new multi supplement me doctor prescribed right around the time this began. Guess I'd better do some testing....:thinkingabout:

The Healing Codes category associated with the salivary glands is peace. If it is possible that this is part of a healing reaction from doing THC, Dr. Loyd says to do the same code that triggered it with the intention of easing the discomfort of the healing reaction.
Then again, it could absolutely be that new supplement. A few days off of it may give you a definitive answer. As a person with loads of chemical sensitivities, I have found I have to introduce anything new all by itself and give it some time. Just a couple of weeks ago, I tried a new delicate laundry soap (of the same Ecover brand I've used for washing dishes for many years) on my sheets and realized after several days of getting very tense in bed that it must be the new product. Arrrgh. I guess I should try doing sway testing in the store and definitely before I use anything new at home.
Hope you find your resolution to this soon.

Vi, maybe it's my DH's stress about work! That would be the opposite of peace!
Before it started, I was working on whichever code my body said it wanted each day, so it's not like I was working on a specific one, until I started in on self-control and I've been doing that since. I have just started using the universal code with kindness once a day, in addition to the specific code for self-control twice a day, so I'll play around with testing that.
I did test the supplement and I'm not getting that it's causing it. It would surprise me, since my doc tested me on it before prescribing it, but anything's possible.
DS has been all stuffed up and coughing and I thought he had a cold again, but I'm wondering if it's a new environmental allergy. We have had a really hot and DRY (which is not normal) summer, which could have encouraged a high pollen count in a plant that is not usually that much of a factor. Maybe that's pushing us over the edge.
Thankfully, the one that was driving me nuts last night popped in my sleep. Phew!
