Turbinate Hypertrophy – Homeopathy Offers an Effective Treatment

Nasal turbinates also called the nasal conchae are small sausage shaped structures located within the nose which are made up of bone and covered with soft tissue called mucosa. They are three in number on either side. They are named as superior, middle and inferior turbinates. They warm, humidify the air that flows from nostrils to the lungs and also filter particles like dust from this air that we breathe in. When these nasal turbinates swell, enlarge and cause hindrance to air flow and breathing then it is referred to as turbinate hypertrophy. The turbinates, mainly the middle and inferior one mostly tend to get enlarged and block airflow. Homeopathic Treatment for turbinate hypertrophy helps treat the root cause (like nasal allergies, cold, sinus inflammation) to bring about natural recovery. Homeopathic Treatment for Turbinate Hypertrophy

  4. Hello Dr, I have had perfect nasal for 50 years and small seasonal allergies that I treated with and an antihistamine only a few days.
    Last year buy accident I took pseudoephedrine 240 mg a day as the pharmacist told me it was the same antihistamine. It was not. It’s a nasal decongestant and it turned my clear liquid mucus to cement and also inflamed all my nasal and sinus. I have this for a year the mucus is better but the inflammation remains. Any recommendations on what I can take to reduce the inflammation it’s not from allergies but from a rebound effect of the awful medication. Thank you
