Homeopathic Remedies For Nasal Polyps

Updated on June 5, 2012

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.

      Hello Mad, Homeopathy is not an invasive form of treatment for nasal polyps that should be considered by those suffering from polyps. Addressing the underlying issues such as allergies is important.

      I have a nasal polyps which probably have come up because of the reaction of allergy in the air. I was told that if the allergic condition which may prevail in a particular house can be removed then the chances of allergice reaction causing recurring of polyps has a very little chance to recur. I do feel that there may be two causes why this allergic reaction had taken place.

      1. From the airconditioner which was not cleaned for two years. I always felt funny when the aircondition was put on such as slight hot and cold feeling which comes when I tend to be effected by allergy.

      2. May be from the carpet which was not cleaned for two years.

      Now that I have cleaned the airconditioner and removed the carpet, may be the allergic reaction will not come. I have decided to operate the polyps and thereafter use homeopathy medicine so that the polyps do not recur. Will that solve my problem. My e-mail address is and my telephone number is 033 24746176.

      Please take note that while most of the polyps are non-cancerous, some of them are. This happens especially when there is an irritant that frequently enters the nasal cavity such as smoke from cigarettes.
