5 best homeopathic medicines for nasal polyps by Dr Harsh Sharma

A common problem affecting the nose is the growth of polyps. These are quite troublesome. A chronic obstruction of the nose that stays the same throughout the day could be a nasal polyp. If you have chronic obstruction of the nose, nasal voice, frequent sneezing, you could be having nasal polyps. Before we outline the commonly used homeopathic medicines for nasal polyps, let us understand a little bit more about nasal polyps.

What is a Nasal Polyp

For those who are not aware about nasal polyps, let me brief you what is a nasal polyp. First and foremost, it is worthwhile to understand that a nasal polyp is non cancerous. It is a teardrop shaped growth in the nasal cavity. At times, it forms in the sinuses or at the opening of the sinus into the nasal cavities. The polyp almost looks like a grape that has been peeled.

Nasal Polyps and their symptoms

When the nasal polyp is small, it is usually asymptomatic. There are hardly any symptoms when the size is very small. It is only the larger ones that create trouble.

  • A large nasal polyp tends to block the nasal cavity. This causes difficulty in breathing.
  • The nose remains obstructed and one has to breathe through the mouth. This allows a lot of viruses and bacteria to enter the body. These would have otherwise been stopped by the filters provided in the nasal cavity.
  • The presence of frequent cold and cough in patients with nasal polyps in a large measure due to this very fact.
  • At times, there is bleeding from the nasal polyps.
  • A constant dropping of mucous from the posterior nares is another common symptom that is seen.
  • One also tends to lose the sense of smell and taste.
  • An increased incidence of allergies is often seen in patients with nasal polyps. It has often been seen that the patient is allergic to various things. Family history of allergies is also common.
  • There is prevalence of sinusitis too in patients with nasal polyps.
  • Difficulty in breathing and wheezing may also be present.
  • Another observation is that nasal polyps occur more frequently in adults above the age of 40. Children below the age of 10 are rarely affected.
  • They are more common in men than in women.

Nasal Polyps treatment in Homeopathy- Why go for Surgery for nasal polyps when it can be cured with Homeopathy

The ENT surgeons usually recommend getting them removed surgically as Allopathic system of medicine has no medicinal treatment for nasal polyps. Our experience is that these nasal polyps are easily treatable and there is no need to get these nasal polyps removed surgically. Homeopathy is very effective in dealing with these little growths. Not only are the symptoms removed, the growths themselves vanish over a period of time.

Homeopathy is uniquely placed as it takes into account not only the symptoms, but also the causes of the problem. Some causes are at times obvious. Others may not be obvious and are subtle. These may be the stress factors that the person had been undergoing before the problem surfaced. There may be some other things that need the experience of a seasoned homeopath to decipher.
