Homeopathic Treatment of Nasal Polyps

By Neepa Sevak

Are you distressed from recurrent blockage of nose with or without discharge, difficulty breathing, and a weakened sense of smell? Most people would blame this on allergies or a chronic sinus infection. But in some cases, this may be due to nasal polyps. Nasal polyps are non-cancerous, soft overgrowths that develop within the nose or sinuses. They appear like grapes and can develop single or in clusters. Nasal polyps are resultant of an allergy that weakens the wall of the nasal mucous membrane causing ballooning of this wall followed by filling of the sac with a liquid. Nasal polyps may become bulky enough to entirely occlude the nasal passages, blocking the pathways where the sinuses drain into the nose.

Causes of Nasal Polyps

  • Recurrent soreness and irritation in the sinuses from allergy or infection
  • Injury to sinus membranes

Homeopathic Approach to Nasal Polyps

Homeopathy is strongly recommended for management of nasal polyps, especially when they are small in size. Timely administered Homoeopathic medicines offer promising results and help avoid surgery, as well as its inherent complications. Homeopathic remedies are unique and effective that will shrink your existing polyps, prevent recurrence, treat the bleeding and pain associated with the polyps, reduce swelling of the mucous membranes, reduce itching and tickling within the nostrils, prevent mouth breathing and snoring. Homeopathy believes in treating the patient and not just the disease. Homeopathic treatment can remove the underlying cause for the allergic tendency and eliminate sinus problems completely. Homeopathic drugs are non-habit forming and have no addictive characteristics. Homeopathy has an exceptional proven safety record with the FDA with 200 years of clinical effectiveness. Since it treats in totality, it leads to a permanent long-lasting cure, rather than a temporary suppression of symptoms.
