Homeopathic Remedies For Nasal Polyps
Homeopathy – Nasal Polyps Remedy
Nasal polyps are fleshy growths that occur inside the nasal passage. These growths are mostly non-cancerous. Symptoms of nasal polyps may include a diminished sense of smell, nasal obstruction and sinusitis. Traditional treatment for nasal polyps is with a steroid spray, antibiotics or decongestants. These are not curative, they merely treat the symptoms. Surgery is also performed to remove nasal polyps. However, nasal polyps often return after surgical removal. There are safe, effective homeopathic remedies for nasal polyps. Homeopathy is an excellent and safe treatment for nasal polyps. Using a steroid spray or antibiotics should not be considered as the best solution.
Traditional medicine attempts to control the symptoms with repeated or prolonged courses of steroids and/or antibiotics. When total nasal obstruction occurs, the family doctor then refers the patient for surgery. This is not the way to go. You need to treat the root cause of the nasal polyps. Allergies or asthma are the most common causes of nasal polyps. Also people suffering from chronic colds are susceptible to nasal polyps. Homeopathy will not only shrink nasal polyps, it will also treat the chronic causes of nasal polyps.
Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine. It treats the whole body, not merely looking at particular symptoms or complaints. This holistic treatment is excellent for nasal polyps because they do not simply occur, nasal polyps are the result of an underlying health problem.
Homeopathic remedies may help nasal polyps from recurring. If you have had surgery to remove nasal polyps and then they have come back, homeopathy has a preventive effect and will help to minimize the chance of the polyps coming back.
