Tonsillolith or tonsil stones are perhaps one of the most unpopular minor health problems in the world. Who wants to be in the middle of a fine dinner and then cough up a yucky yellow blob in one's plate or drinking glass? Or maybe get into a first kiss and puff an awful whiff of bad breath? No wonder people just opt for a tonsillectomy in the hope of fixing the problem for good. Tonsillectomy is the permanent, surgical removal of tonsils.

But let's look at what's happening. Tonsil stones are basically waste materials that have formed in your tonsil pits. These are impurities such as old food particles, nasal mucous, germs, etc. The stones can form only if you have your tonsils, and they can't go any deeper into your throat because the tonsils block them. It may be annoying to have tonsil debris, but if you think about it closely, you will realize that tonsils serve a good purpose by forming stones: they let you know when there are impure deposits in the area. Get rid of your tonsils, and you risk opening yourself up to deeper, bigger problems. In fact, people who've had their tonsils removed still have signs of the deposits.

Tonsil stones taste bad, and they smell even worse. But there are other, non-invasive ways to cure tonsillolith. Before you throw yourself under a surgical knife to have your tonsils removed, think about why they are there in the first place. Your body is trying to tell you something!
