In brief: No easy way...

The only way to get rid of the stones for sure is to get rid of the tonsils.
This is rarely necessary though. These stones often come from post-nasal mucus dripping down and getting caught in the litte holes (crypts). As it dries it gets hard (and smelly!). Nasal saline washes often help break up the mucus, helping it to flow down and not get caught.

In brief: Reduce inflammation

Tonsillar stones are result of chronic inflammation from various causes.
Viral infections, common are undiagnosed food allergens that rev up immune system and lead to reaction to environmental causes and tonsillar inflammation as first line of defense to oral entry point. Igg food allergen testing thru metametrix or genova would be good place to start with a functional medicine doc to help guide.
