I think you are on the right track what you are doing. I am proud of you for taking action.
I have thought of colonincs but when I ask my mind, my body, it tells me no, or no at this time.
Keep doing what you are doing and ask yourself.
I cannot answer your question on keeping them out of your throat.
Personal I think I got it in my throat because of a week spot, I had strep throat many times when I was 16 thur 19. hen again in my 30s.
Can you get a zapper? There are ones for 10.00. I don't know the link but on ask barefoot on this curezone site, you can ask them. Boldyloxx should have the link. Or anyone on that forum.
I know it worked for me.
Keep up the great work on taking your health in your own hands.
