Homeopathic Treatment for Rhinorrhea

What is CSF and CSF Rhinorrhea?

CSF or cerebrospinal fluid is a body fluid found in the brain and spine. The choroid plexus of the ventricles of the brain produces about 500 ml of CSF daily. CSF is a clear, colorless fluid present in the ventricles of the brain as well as in the area surrounding the brain and spinal cord. CSF acts as a cushion or shock absorber and protects the brain from injuries, blows, and jolts. Other functions of CSF include the supply of nutrition to the nervous system tissue and waste product removal of cerebral metabolism. The drainage of this CSF fluid from the nose is known as CSF rhinorrhea or cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea. Homeopathic treatment for rhinorrhea is derived from plants and is safe and natural.

What is the Cause for CSF Rhinorrhea?

Trauma to the head is the most common reason for CSF rhinorrhea. CSF rhinorrhea is usually a sign of a basal skull fracture. In some cases, CSF rhinorrhea may be a symptom of pituitary adenoma. CSF rhinorrhea may also arise after surgical trauma during endoscopic sinus surgery or other neurosurgical procedures. Apart from the above reasons, CSF rhinorrhea may also occur due to increased intracranial pressure.

What are the Symptoms of CSF Rhinorrhea and the Investigations for its Diagnosis?

The primary symptom of CSF rhinorrhea is leakage of clear, watery discharge from the nose. The discharge of fluid is usually from one side of the nose. Bending the head forward makes the symptom worse. Draining of salty fluid from the nose into the throat is also a symptom in some individuals with CSF rhinorrhea. CSF rhinorrhea carries the risk of causing meningitis. The diagnostic test for CSF rhinorrhea includes Beta-2 transferrin test. Beta-2 transferrin is a protein exclusively present in CSF and thus helps in confirming CSF rhinorrhea. Other tests done in suspected cases of CSF rhinorrhea include CT scan of the head and CT cisternography.

Homeopathic Treatment for CSF Rhinorrhea

In homeopathy, a majorly indicated homeopathic medicine for rhinorrhea is Hedera Helix. Hedera Helix is derived from a species of common ivy from the plant family Araliaceae. The young shoots and flowering twigs of this plant are used to prepare Hedera Helix using the process of potentisation. Hedera Helix is a very effective homeopathic treatment for rhinorrhea.

    After these surgeries, I had a problem of swelling on the right side of my forehead and for which I had to undergo another surgery for removal of bone flap. Presently I am on medicines. Is there any treatment for this in Homeopathic which I can take alongwith the present one.

  7. Purna Chandra Misra says:

    I am having symptoms of rhinoorrhea and leaking of white thick fluid from my left side nostril . Quantity of discharge is not much and it happens may be six to seven times in a day. I have been having this since more than a year and earlier the discharge was more frequently and the quantity almost same as now. It was more bothersome then and now the symptoms have improved. I am 66 yrs old male and have no BP problem. I am seeking non invasive treatment unless it is really required. Therefore I like to go for homeopathy treatment.

  14. Raghbir Nandra says:

    Dear Dr Sharma

    My Name is Raghbir Nandra and i live in the United Kingdom. I suffered CSF Rhinorrhea for the past 16 weeks and for the last 10 days it has improved naturally without any treatment or medication by 75% the leakage has reduced. During the period CT Scan and MRI was done and everything was normal except the CSF Leak. I had an appointment to see the specialist yesterday and he has advised that in some cases it can come back after 2 months and he has suggested an eye test to check that there is no pressure build up. He has also said that it can stop naturally in some cases. We would like your opinion and suggestions regarding the above. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

  32. Hi Doctor,

    My husband underwent endoscopic CSF leak repair along with Septoplasty and Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery on July 19, 2017 through his right nostril. As the exact location of the leak was not found, based on the presumptions, doctor sealed the soft areas from where the leak was most likely to occur. He found his right nostril wet and recently he got fluid discharge through his left nostril (nearly 8 drops). My question here is, would the leak sealed on the right side can recur in his left side? If so, should he go for another surgery or wait for it to heal by itself. He underwent a great pain in his previous surgery due to the lumbar drain and also find his head heavy as the exact place of leak was not sealed but had many layers of the tissues and muscles filled in the approximate place of leak. Please let us know what to do further.
