Nasal Polyps – Causes , Symptoms and Homeopathy

Soft growths arising from mucous membrane of nose or paranasal sinus are referred as nasal polyps. They are painless and non cancerous growths. There is no specific cause leading to nasal polyps. However, certain factors including nasal allergies, nasal infections and chronic nasal catarrh are linked with formation of nasal polyps. Nasal polyps lead to symptoms of stuffy nose, post nasal drip, sneezing, runny nose, loss of smell and headaches.

 Can Homeopathy treat Nasal Polyps ?

The most common treatment option suggested by conventional system in nasal polyps is surgical removal; But surgery offers a  temporary relief  in many cases. This is so because surgery is just excising the polyps and not taking care of the body’s tendency to form polyps .  In most cases, Nasal polyps reappear after surgery. Homeopathy offers effective, natural and alternative treatment for nasal polyps. Homeopathic medicines promise a effective treatment in nasal polyps by treating the root cause.  Homeopathic medicines treat nasal polyps in a safe and gentle manner. I would rank the following six homeopathic medicines as the best homeopathic medicines for nasal polyps – Lemna Minor, Kali Bichrome, Sanguinaria Can, Calcarea Carb, Teucrium and Phosphorus.

 Homeopathic treatment for Nasal Polyps:

 Lemna Minor – One of the Best Homeopathic treatment for Nasal Polyps

In the list of all major homeopathic medicines for nasal polyps, Lemna Minor occupies the top rank. In my clinical practice, I have found Lemna Minor very effective in curing nasal polyps. Lemna Minor is indicated when nasal blockage is very intense from nasal polyps. Loss of smell (anosmia) may also be present . The nasal turbinate may also show marked swelling. Person may complain of thick, profuse, yellow white nasal discharge. Foul smell from nose may also accompany. Polyps that typically worsen in wet weather, indicate the use of Lemna Minor.

 Kali Bichrome – Wonderful Homeopathic Medicine for Nasal Polyps Associated with Chronic Nasal Catarrh

By putting Kali Bichrome at number two, it does not mean that Kali Bi is less effective than Lemna Minor. It is equally effective as Lemna Minor and capable of curing nasal polyps when the symptoms peculiar to this medicine are found in patient. I usually prefer Kali Bichrome for treating nasal polyps in person with chronic nasal catarrh and when the nasal discharges are of thick, yellowish green, tough, viscid character.  For patients requiring Kali bichrome following symptoms are most indicative of its use – The nose feels stuffed up with fullness and pain at the root of nose.There is inability to breathe through mouth.  . The post nasal discharges are mostly thick, ropy and viscid nature. I have also seen excellent results with Kali Bichrome in nasal polyps associated with chronic sinusitis.

 Calcarea Carb – One of the Best Homeopathic Medicines for Nasal Polyps that are left sided 

Calcarea Carb is yet another excellent homeopathic medicine for nasal polyps. It is mostly indicated for left sided nasal polyps. The left sided nostril feels blocked. This may be attended with fetid yellow discharge from nose. Soreness and ulcerated sensation in nose is also felt.  Offensive odor in nose is also marked. There is much swelling at the root of nose. I mainly select Calcarea Carb to treat nasal polyps in persons who tend to take cold very easily. Every change of weather worsens nasal complaints.

 Sanguinaria Can – Homeopathic Medicine for Right Sided Nasal Polyps

Sanguinaria Can is next best homeopathic medicine of great help in treating nasal polyps. It shows great affinity to treat nasal polyps on right side. Chronic profuse nasal discharge and sneezing is present in along with nasal polyps. Nasal membranes are swollen and congested. Right sided headache may also appear along with nasal complaints.  I use it for Right sided Nasal Polyps.

 Teucrium – Homeopathic Medicine for Post Nasal Polyps

Teucrium is well indicated homeopathic medicine for post nasal polyps. I usually prescribe this medicine when nasal polyps leads to obstruction of nose on the side lain .Other symptoms that indicate its use are – There is much sneezing and stoppage of nostrils. Crawling sensation in nose may also be felt. Sense of smell is lost. Large offensive crusts may pass from nose. Person may also complain of bad taste in throat.  Hawking of mucus from throat also appears along with.

 Phosphorus –One of the Homeopathic Medicines for Nasal Polyps that Bleed easily

Phosphorus is one of the best homeopathic medicines for nasal polyps that bleed easily. I  use  Phosphorus in bleeding nasal polyps. It has always given remarkable results in polyps that are prone to bleeding. For Phosphorus to be used as a homeopathic medicine for polyps following symptoms may also be present -There is also marked coryza. There is alternation between dry and watery coryza. Sneezing, nasal blockage and loss of smell are usually present along with polyps .

    Dear Dr. Sharma,

    I am into 56 and suffering from sinusitis for last 3-4 years. I have done FESS 2 years ago but my polyps have returned and causing lots of discomfort to my life. I would be grateful if you could provide an insight into homeopathy and recommending some treatment.
    Currently I am under the care of a ENT specialist and really not put an ending my misery. I had been on steroids (prednisone) a couple of rounds which helps in recovery but short lived. Every few months. Now about a couple of weeks I was OK and caught cold 2 weeks ago and my polyps has returned. Forgot to mention, I am still on nasal cortisteroid(Nasacort) sprays for the last 2 months.
    I believe the polyps have retuned as I lost the taste of smell and occasional runny nose and sneezing in the morning before the nasal sprays. But the problem still persist and another annoying thing I am going through is when I bend over water my nose gushes out. It happens after a couple of hours again when I stoop or bend over.
    I hope you can help me to put an end to my problem as I have tried homeopathy medicine previously and has worked.

    Dr.Sir! I have been suffering from nasal polyp& watery discharge from my nostril on right side,for the last about 2yrs. I read it on net,that nostril particularly on the right side,if are blocked,then Tuecrium is the medicine. I took tuecrium30three drops in the water for 3or 4days twice daily,& enjoyed relief. But the problem repeats every two months. I may add here,that I had had a unique problem of sinus or phelgum droping in my throat. My father in law,a cursar homeopethic studies,himself,administered me with Hydrast30liquid in water twice aday for 2days. It worked wonders in 1973. No problem for 3decades or so. My problem sarts only when diluted phelgumsarts droping in my throat,to be swallowed by me every minute. I cannot sometimes sleep for the entire nights & wait for the dawn. I sit on the chair throughout night & sleep early morning . I am encountering this problem for the last week or so. What do you advice? The rear of my head on left side near my neck pains also at times. I have to swallow phelgum,light cream in colour& watery every now & then. Plz advise?

  11. Dear Sir,

    Since last 2 Years, in my right nostril, Air/breathe is not passing by.Instead, the air is going to my ears and creating a loud noise which is really disturbing me a lot.

    When it started: I had a bad habbit of putting finger in my nose, especially right nose; and now, the right nose is affected.

    how often: Initially, the air would pass for sometime and then go away but now, this nose and ear problem is for 24 hrs.

    On rare occasions, my left nostril air goes away and right gets opened. But this is very rare.

    Mainly, loud sound in my right ear is what disturbing me a lot.

    When it gets worse: When I bow my head down, it gets worse

    When I feel slightly better: When I move my head upwards, I feel less noise(but the air does not come in)

    More Info: Problem gets worse in WINTERS. In Summers, noises usually goes away.

    Any difficulty: I don’t have any difficulty in breathing.

    Previous history: I never had have any nose problem ever, neither in my parents

    I don’t have any major disease, neither any reaction , nor did I do any treatment before.

    Medications: I went to allopath doctor and he gave me nasal spray. I tried for 2-3 days but no relief.

    Please help. This problem is Killing me.

  14. B Kalyanaraman says:

    Dear Sir,
    I have been diagnised having nasal polyps on both left and right side. I have smell disorder could smell only if it kept close to the nose. I do not have breathing problem . Only when there is cold i have the nasal block , otherwise Iam able to breathe freely.
    Worried whether I will lose the smell sensitivity permanantly , How do I remove the polyps and how much time it takes to cure through medicines . Do the Homeo medicines have side effects like hormonal change or putting on weights…like that.
    Please advice.


    I underwent polyps surgery 14 years back. now since last 3 years, these have redeveloped that I have to resort to mouth breathing. A lump of flesh is obstructing the passage. It can be seen from the nostrils.
    Delhi govt. dispensary has suggested ammonium carb 30, dosage 3 small pills as 3 to 4 times a day .

    Please suggest the if the treatment will work and how much time will it take to cure.
    I certainly not willing to get it operated because
    I am 56 yrs and gone CAD/ PTCA 4 years back (30th Nov, 2011)
    If the treatment at your door is not too costly, I may consider to consult you, but might be approachable in Delhi.
