Sinus Polyp Remedies

Jul 13, 2016

Natural treatment for sinus (nasal) polyps involves using a holistic approach to boost the immune system and shrink polyps.  A healthy, natural diet and lifestyle changes supplemented with Pranamya breathing exercises encourage the body to resist and diminish polyp growth.  Various herbal remedies improve the function of the lymphatic system while natural nasal sprays reduce polyp size and make breathing easier.

What are Sinus Polyps?

Noncancerous growths in the nose found near the sinuses in the nasal cavity, usually linked to asthma and allergies are called Sinus Polyps.  Small polyps don't need treatment, but large ones block the airway and can become infected. Polyps often reoccur if lifestyle changes are not maintained.

Lifestyle Changes Support the Immune and Lymphatic Systems

A gluten-free diet emphasizing no sugar, food preservatives or additives, no coffee or alcohol (it swells mucous membranes) and reduced carbs will detoxify the body and starve polyps.  It is thought that polyps grow because of ‘garbage’ that is consumed.  Exercise, lymphatic massage and Pranamya breathing exercises will energize the lymphatic system while helping to shrink polyps, making breathing easier.

Herbal Treatments for Sinus Polyps

Drinking hot, clear fluids will help to drain the sinuses. Green tea is particularly beneficial, containing the most antioxidants and polyphenols.  Mint, ginger and Echinacea are excellent choices for herbal teas; mint fights infections and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties while ginger and Echinacea have numerous benefits.

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne, among its many health benefits, stimulates and detoxes our lymphatic system.  Cayenne tea (combined with honey and lemon) is an excellent morning detox.  Cayenne is especially useful against polyps when diluted with water and sprayed into the nostrils.  


Goldenseal was used by Native Americans to treat many ailments and is effective against many varieties of bacteria, yeast and fungi, including candida.  It is used to treat mucus membrane infections, including sinus infections.  It also helps alleviate sinus and chest congestion.

The goal of all holistic treatments is to disrupt the nasal environment that encourages polyp growth and to support the lymphatic and immune systems.  Diet and lifestyle changes have the added benefit of increased energy levels and improved overall health.

Nasal Polyps - I've suffered from nasal polyps for seven years now and the last three I have lost my sense of smell. I've tried every possible remedy and two sinus operations and nothing works. The tea tree oil remedy some of you mention is, I believe, only effective for polyps caused by fungus, or perhaps those in sinuses you can get to with a Q tip. Mine are too far inside for that and although the diluted tea tree oil feels good and opens up the airways it did not cure them.

I've tried everything else, including fresh water ray oil, acupunture, Sinus Wars homeopathic remedy, various natural cold remedies, antihisthamies, all kinds of antibiotics -- you name it. There are only two things that work, and both temporarily: corticosteroids and a draconian alkaline diet. I think you all know about steroids; in high doses they work like a dream, but the polyps come back after a few weeks and, at least for me, the sprays don't work.

However, the diet I did was near miraculous. I was actually not even thinking about the polyps, but just wanted to do a near fasting diet for a week or so. I eliminated coffee, alcohol, dairy products, meat and anything else that causes mucus, and lived basicically on a few nuts, water and raw vegetables for a week. Suddenly everything cleared up and I felt like new and could smell and taste again. Even my ears, which I hadn't realized were partially blocked because of the sinusitis caused by the polyps, were suddenly free. Unfortunately after I started adding back some cooked foods (although still totall vegan) the polyps returned and I lost my sense of smell again. At least I lost 7 kilos in less that a month.

So if you are really frustrated and have some self control, try a fast or near fast and eliminate all acidic foods.

Oliver from Paris, this is what I do:

1. I Eat a few leaves of fresh basil before breakfast and before dinner

2. I Do the nasal rinse (cup of warm distilled water, 1 tsp seasalt, 12 drops of bloodroot (herbal), and 12 drops of h2o2 (hydrogen peroxide).

3. I Do the vapor (boil a cup of distilled water and a few or 3 drops of tea tree oil)--inhale vapor for about 1-2 minutes. I close my eyes when I do this. I can feel a burning sensation in my nasal but that's for the polyps so it's good for me.

4. I drink black tea with ginger powder and green tea with natural honey.

5. I increase alkalinity in my body and drink a half cup of warm water with 1/4 tsp citric acid and 1/4 tsp of baking soda (citric acid that I find in herbal section of the market, where I find the ginger powder). Even if I eat acidic food, I'm ok.

6. I drink half cup of fresh coconut milk (or almond milk)--warm and then add half tsp of turmeric powder.

7. I make smoothie everyday that covers most of the foods that are effective for my polyps (dandelion, broccoli, spinach, berries, apple and brazil nuts). If I don't find brazil nuts, I take selenium.

8. I take zinc which I get from a vitamin shop or healthfood market

9. I started taking Pulsatilla pellets 200c (herbal-windflower) which I get from a healthfood market and take 3 pellets 3 times a day. I will do this for about 10-15 days and see if it's effective. This is good for my nasal discharge. I may continue to use it if needed.

10. I take Vitamin C if I don't have enough citrus for the day. I also take Vitamin E. My smoothie covers most of my Vitamin A so I don't take this anymore.

I feel good now, can breath and just have a little nasal discharge. I also feel healthy and more energetic.

Hi Oliver and everyone,

Oliver, it seems very good advice you give here. Doesn't seem to be missing much. Do you follow a low fat diet? I am thinking a no oil, no fat, no dairy diet might be good at least until healed. This means especially no mea, which has saturated fat.

anti-inflammatory omega 3 and antioxidants

boost nitirc oxide levels..spinach and beetroot

Just some further ideas to try.

I burst polyps after no fat vegetarian diet and it took one week.

Hi I am 50 years old live in london and am contented with my life. Although I am tall I have always been undecided and not clear and y body has followed with a runny nose colds sore throats and coughs.

I agree the candida diet works a treat for nose polyps. I think that candida is an imbalance in my body. The two times I have felt best has been when I have been on herbal treatment from Chinese or Ayurvedic (indian) doctors for over 3 months. This has been relatively cheat 30/month, if you do not take the physical treatments which I cannot afford. In india it is much cheaper just locate a busy ayuveda pharmacy and ask the doctor or pharmacist. Everyone is different so treatments are different.

After 3 months I feel cured but it always comes back after a while this time I am going to keep going till I have finally found a cure/cause of my debility.

I have been a sufferer for two years, lost the sense of smell for the last 6 months. I appreciate all the remedies mentioned. I have tried some of them myself. I truly believe that operation should, be the alst option (had one, at the time I had polyps inside the left side, polyps came back in three months to all my sinuses :((

I belive that candida is a big cause, I read extensively about that. Working on it and hoping for the best. yoga seems to be helping as well.

I have a DEEPER question to you all. I wonder why this happened to us? I mean other than the symptoms and similar stories what else do we share? Here are my questions.

  1. Do you live in a big and polluted city?
  2. Do you have a stressful life in general?
  3. Are you a contented person in general?
  4. Have you had seet tooth all your life?

Please let me know.

All the best

I live on this beautiful unpolluted, tropical island. I have nasal polyps. I'm backing mould as the cause. I had a boyfriend with nasal polyps in Sydney years ago. His doctor suggested it was caused by mould (which backs up the candida connection) and recommended he kept his bedroom clear of dust (which becomes mouldy in hot damp climates) and to get plenty of sun in the room to kill any lurking mould. Swedish Bitters cause temporary relief, but if I miss a day, I can see it getting bigger. I already have a healthy diet which I adopted because of risk of return of cancer. My plan is to ferment. I've started with seeds. Today I'm going to start fermenting carrots and also carrot juice. If successful, I'll move on to pumpkin and then who knows?

I lived in the uk for 40 years with a very clear sinus.I moved to live in a tropical island-so call paradise and lived there for 3 years.Well you know living on a tropical island is no fun.The humidity is very high and built up of mould everywhere in the house.There was mould everywhere on the furniture and even on my purse. If there is a rain and wind, then everything in the house get mouldy. You have to take everything from the wardrope and wash them, dry them. At the end of the 3 years, I notice a swelling on my left nostril. I did not know what they were.When I got back to UK at the end of 3 years, I was breathless when I had my flu. Everything was blocked up.I had no sense of smell and I was breathing through my mouth. My dr told me that swelling on my nostril was the beginning of polyps. Drs will tell you they do not know the causes of polyps. Here is a typical scenario of mould and polyps. Drs do not believe in all that. They only believe in surgery. So we sufferers of polyps must stand together and try to fight this evil nasal polyps.Thanks to the internet we might be able to find a cure for the nasal polyps.

Hello I wanted to share with all those suffering from polyps, sinusitis etc. Like most of you mine is an on going saga of surgery to remove these things, visits to doctors, homoeopaths all types of medical people. This had been part of my life for over 15 years. I hadn't had a sense of smell for about 10 years and always a blocked nose, it just became part of who I am.

This enlightening book showed me that almost all allergies are caused by an underlying problem of sugar. Too much. Candida being an almost certain trigger to allergies. This includes of course polyps which are just an allergic reaction as you all know.

I cut out what the book told me too including all fruits and of course sugar and processed flour items and dairy. The next day I could smell again. Also got new pillows and new mattress with cover and wash these regularly. This and living with floor boards instead of carpet has helped too. I no longer have a chronic sinus problem. I do still have blocked ears, well, blocked ear usually and some other symptoms of allergies. However you all know how depressing it can be to be constantly blocked up, so to not have this problem I have felt much, much better. Although I am a true believer of all these wonderful remedies I also believe that it is more important what don't ingest rather than what you do. That is change the diet, it is the only way to get to the problem's core.

The book that helped me was called: "The Allergy and Asthma Cure" by Fred Pescatore. A real turning point for me in my endless pursuit of feeling 100%. I had never heard of the author or the book until I stumbled upon it on the net.

This site is great BTW I am trying the bi carb / ACV remedy and finding myself getting a bit addicted to the feeling that bi carb gives your mouth after placing a pinch on your tounge and swishing it around your mouth. It feels almost you've just had your teeth cleaned by the dentist. I have to limit it to 2 times a day.

I am a polyp sufferer myself. I have been doing several thing and I must say, I am much better. These last three days I have had a bad cold, but I find that I am still breathing through my nose when it would have been 100% blocked previously. I wanted to ask you how you are doing with you diet, I have been reading a lot about yeast lately and how some doctors consider it a cause even for cancer! Thanks

I am 71 now, and have suffered with sinuses for the last 50 years. About three years back, I put in about 7 drops in each nostril for about 10 days before going to sleep. I kept my head facing up for about 10 minutes, and after that, I would turn round and go to sleep. After about 10 days, sinus disappeared.

Hi Nizar.

You didn't mention what drops you put in your nose. Can you please tell me. And also tell me if you could smell before you had used the drops? I've lost my sense of smell and taste :( and also have constant blocked sinuses. Thanks in advance.

I love this! [ Sorry for typos below ]

WARNING: Not for those with low pain tolerance and impatient. DO NOT READ IF YOU GET NAUSEOUS OR GROSSED OUT EASILY.

I have had surgeries for my nasal papillomas for 18 years, even since I was born. Since I am turning twenty I decided I HATE surgeries, so I wanted to try something else. I've tried tea tree[ burned but did nothing but clear sinus a bit], turmeric[ taken orally, worked slightly but not that good], I've even tried Indol-3-Carbinol [ which worked great! And I had them falling out left and right, but got too expensive and a formula switch for my favorite brand stopped me] so I finally tried apple cider vinegar again recently. I've been doing it everyday after work for three days now and here's my process.

Day 1

I apply it using a dropper and try not to let it slide down back of nose, although it DOES and stings but oh well. [ This mistake was helpful, as I noticed the one in the back fell out when this happened about an hour later, I just decided to use a cotton swab that wasn't soaking to prevent burning]

The warts turn white, but I keep dropping apple cider vinegar on them for about an hour or two straight then go to bed.[ watch youtube and be patient! This will help.

Day 2

I wake up smelling so well! Its about 20% clear, which is small but if u struggle with polyps or papillomas u know 20 is BETTER THAN NOTHING OKAY.

So I notice it is a bit smaller in size, and when I go back to add more after work [ for another hour or two] I notice the wart in the center of my nose begin to bleed out a bit, [ I know this is graphic I'm sorry] and when I try to add more vinegar it STINGS, like applying alcohol to a cut kind of stinging, but its nothing I cant handle due to my pain tolerence.

If u get to this stage stay strong because the third day is so worth it.

Day 3

I wake up smelling 50 percent better. NO JOKE! The wart in my right nose is 50% smaller, and has a small [again I'm sorry for the graphic and gross details] crust over it as it healed from last nights beating lol. I remove the crust and blow my nose, and notice that it is super reddish pink before I apply the vinegar.

But I have just applied more ACV to it and more warts from the back have fallen out, and the main one is turning a brighter white and I am so excited for tomorrow. If this is three days imagine a month!

Closing: ACV hurts. It also hurts ur normal nose skin a bit, but apply Vaseline and you should be alright. it wont burn ur skin [ it didn't to mine but may for sensitive skin] .

THIS STUFF WORKS. NOTHING AND I MEAN NOTHING has worked for me ever, and in three days [ a bit painful] nonetheless I have had such good results. I can actually look people in the eye again! So happy to say.

Please try this, even take it internally if u want, but applying it directly gave me these results.

I recently had a problem with a nasal infection and polyps blocking one side of my nose. I discovered your site and tried ACV and by next day my nose was clear. Meanwhile my husband had a sinus problem and I wanted him to try ACV as well. He didnt like the taste... So I am better and he still has sinus... go figure! Your site is excellent - thanks so much.

Put 2 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in a large coffee cup, along with water. Heat until it steams, then inhale the steam. Clears up sinus problems, but I don't know about polyps.

You can also put 2 tsps of ACV in hot tea and drink it. Tastes a bit like what lemon would taste like but instead it has apple flavor. I do not recommend ACV from the grocery store because it has been filtered. Buy the ACV from a health food store that has the "mother" in it (non filtered). I use store bought ACV (filtered) for hair rinse and rashes. Stings lightly at first, but then fades quickly and no itch afterwards. Great for dogs too, since fleas hate ACV.

Anyway..try the steam with ACV and inhaling, but be careful to not make it too hot so you burn yourself.

I have undergone 3 surgeries for nasal polyps, been on steroid nasal sprays, and been on steroid saline irrigation. I no longer use prescription medicine, instead I am on a B vitamin supplement.

My doctor and I accidentally found out that I had been cured of nasal polyps when I went for a check up and the doctor found no polyps despite the fact that I had stopped my nasal steroid 3 months earlier due to vaccinations I was receiving. Over the next year, I did detective work to figure out how I did it. Initially, I thought it was zinc, fish oil, and B vitamins. However, I stopped the zinc and the fish oil years ago and the polyps are still gone. The only supplement I take now is a daily B vitamin pill. B vitamins are important for keeping one's skin healthy; so, my guess is that the B vitamins keep my skin strong enough to prevent bacteria, viruses, and fungi from breaching it and causing infection and inflammation and the resulting polyps.

On a side note, I was supposed to have a 4th surgery in 2007. I went for a third opinion, and that doctor said that he could get rid of the polyps without surgery. He gave me oral prednisone AND had me put budesonide (liquid prednisone) in saline solution and irrigate my nasal passages twice a day. The polyps were completely gone in 2 months.

On another side note, my friend's doctor told her to go on a migraine free food diet to stop her sinus infections. I have found that avoiding certain migraine trigger foods (almonds and oranges for me) keeps me from getting sinus congestion. Avoiding sinus congestion probably helps prevent the polyps by keeping bacteria from growing in all that stagnant sinus fluid.

I've had nasal polyps and had the surgery to have them removed and the polyps came back. Of course I took steriods and they are gone again. I am going to try the B Vitamins. Did you lose your sense of smell? I would like to know how to get my sense of smell back. Please advise if you know how I can get my sense of smell back.
Replied by Emily

Over the years, at various times, I have lost my sense of smell from 3 different causes: (1) nasal polyps, (2) congestion from migraine swelling, and (3) zinc deficiency. So, the cure would depend on the cause... By the way, when I get migraine swelling, I do NOT get a headache, instead I get nasal and sinus swelling. When had a zinc deficiency, I took a fairly low dose of 15 mg and took it with food. Otherwise, zinc on an empty stomache can give one a terrible belly ache!

Has anyone tied bloodroot for nasal Polyps with any success?

Don't use bloodroot or black salve. DON'T. It is dangerous...

Posted by Marie (United Kingdom) on 03/07/2014

Hi, I have nasal polyps but one in my right nostril that is so huge, it is embarrassing and horrible to live with. I applied bloodroot salve to it and it seems to have a hole in the centre of it. Does that mean it is working? I'm scared because I don't want to use too much but since there is no info on it, I don't know how much to apply each day with a cotton swab. I don't know what it means that a hole is through it but I want the whole giant thing gone. Can you advise me? I am due for surgery within the next six months or so and frankly, I'd rather not have to go through that. I appreciate your help on this matter. Most Sincerely, Marie

No, no one told me anything. I am at my wit's end, as you are. I am going to an ENT specialist in June and I'm sure I'll have to get them removed, which I don't want to go through either. A month ago, I had to go on an antibiotic due to a sore throat and infection I had trouble fighting on my own. Almost immediately, the polyps shrunk and I was able to breathe. It was like a miracle. But of course that didn't last once I finished the pills. I am fed up with doctors either not knowing anything about these horrendous things or not telling us how to get rid of them without surgery. I just cannot believe there is no cure for this nonsense. It is so irritating!!!

I would try to avoid surgery at all costs. I lost my sense of smell, and therefore taste, of course, about 7 years ago due to sinus polyps. The only time I can smell is when I have to take steroids for an asthma flare, or if there are residual effects from a steroid joint injection. The only time I feel decent is when I'm taking steroids, so I must be a flaming blob of inflammation. I had the surgery about 5 years ago and the polyps came back in full force a depressingly short time later. The ENT doc (whom I equate with a used car salesman now) told me I would have to use steroid drops for the rest of my life. I tried that for a year, but they did nothing so I stopped. They can't reach my sinuses and I can't stand on my head to take them. I'm not sure what exactly is causing them. It's probably mold or allergies. I'm thinking of bracing myself and trying diet. I'm spineless when it comes to sugar, so before I try diet I'm wondering about one of the salt inhalers I've seen that supposedly work wonders for asthma. Has anyone tried that?

After reading threads about bloodroot I decided to give it a shot. I had just run a course of steroids for my nasal polyps, so having a clean slate, was a great time. For the last week I have been using the following concoction in my neti pot: 1/2tsp salt, 12 drops of bloodroot tincture, filled to 3/4 with the hottest tap water, then topped off with H2O2.

I have been using this once a day, and my sinuses just don't appear to be producing a fraction of the mucus. I am unsure if it is to drying, but drying of any sort is a vast improvement.

Replied by Determined

Just a follow up:

The sinus rinse with the neti pot has been doing it's part. I went to a homeopathic web site,and put nasal polyp into the search box. It brought up three homeopathics for control of nasal polyps. I ordered them and have been taking them for over a month now. My sinus creates half of the mucus it would otherwise, and I can always clear it out at the beginning of the day.

In reference to bloodroot, you must look into the following books:Back to Eden" by Jethro Kloss- one of the best and most reliable books on herbal usage available. It has also much information about food, nutrition, exercise, it also has the botanical names of plants, which is very important. It has information on blood root.

"The way of Herbs" by Michael Tierra. Another very extensive and also talks about blood root.

Well, truth of the matter of it is that bloodroot certainly does work for everything from nose polyps to using it as an ink or dye for clothes. It can be used as an emetic, a stimulate, and as a topical application for pain. Now, when you go to look for it on the Internet, it will probably be expensive. But the truth of the matter is that it grows wild near ponds and similar water ways. It is literally littered all over the nearby woods along the river banks and ponds. I recommend to save yourself some money and also increase your intelligence, get a book with colored pictures for wild flowers and fauna of north America and go out and find some. It should be gathered in the early spring. But, please do get these books, they are wonderful and the authors know what they're talking about which means you are in safe hands taking their instruction, of course if you ask the doctor he'd rather cut into your face than admit an herb ( a natural gift from our Creator) would work. In truth, nutrition, herbs and exercise along with a constructive interest( such as natural medicine) are all you need to cure anything from a sore throat to skin cancer and even aids and syphilis. So, good luck! And remember, let's use all that has been given to use to keep us on the right track.

Bloodroot does NOT harm skin tissue, in fact it is quite the reverse! I used a blood root salve on my Mother's skin cancer and it removed it within 3wks and without any scar tissue whatsoever. My friend had the same type of skin cancer and much younger than my Mother, however she chose to have a Doctor remove it and now has a horrible scar about the size of a 50p coin. It is quite deep too, so compare that - a 40yrs woman left scarred opposed to a 99yrs old woman with no scar? The article on the blood root herb was a disinformation article clearly. I bought this salve from a man who was quite recently, mysteriously dragged onto a plane literally by 'men in black' in Equador and he has never been seen again since?!

Sylvie, I have collected Bloodroot previously and have also been driven off by the disinformation. The older generation in my native Apalachia used it for many ailments but I fear it has been lost. The man in who was taken in Equador is very interesting.... Did he routinely make herbal medicines? I'm sure this would make him a target as the codex alimentarius was supposedly passed in the UK? Also, did he list ingredients on his salve? I make my own salves and would be very interested. Thanks for the post.

I'd like to testify on behalf Bloodroot.

I myself have just used the very Black Salve sold by the above mentioned gentleman, who had been jailed, chased out of the country, harassed and kidnapped for making the original Black Salve, so effective, it removes skin cancer in a week.

His name is Greg Caton, his family still operates in Equador, under Alpha Omega Labs.

The Black Salve I received from him, removed 5 cancers from my face, out of which one was on the tip of my nose.The salve does not harm the skin in the 12 hours it has to be kept on. It causes rosiness, similar to the effect of dry-brushing.

But it instantly reveals cancer, causing it to become black, as it is literally eating it away, until it becomes a black stub and falls out.

I've done my research before getting Black Salve, and decided to do it after finding the video on Youtube about the lady who had enough of being butchered by doctors, and who's nose cancer healed perfectly, leaving no scar.

That is because by cutting, the cells are mutated. The Black Salve on the other hand, removes the harmful cells in full, leaving the healthy ones untouched, and the body takes care of the healing process, just like it does when you fall and cause damage to your tissues.

Black Salve removed a green pea size of malignant tissue out of my nose, leaving me with a hole. But of course it instantly started to fill up. Right now it is completely filled up, and there still is a flat little scab on the top of my nose, which I'm patiently waiting for to fall.... especially because I haven't been outside for two weeks :)

The important thing is not to remove the scab, but wait for it to fall off.

So on whatever problem you may apply the Black Salve, don't panic when it starts removing malignant tissue, it is the best surgery you can get, and it will heal just like any other wound heals on your body.

My Best to Everyone,

God Bless you People

Sinus Polyps: I took a tea spoonful castor oil daily about 6 days for three weeks before seeing my ENT doctor. He told me that there were no polyps in my sinuses. It was unbelievable, for I had polyp surgeries twice in the past. Castor Oil works for me.

I am modifying my statement. I am not quite sure how many weeks I have taken a teaspoonful castor oil. It could be six day of one or two weeks, not three.
Replied by Hannah
Why Castor oil only six days a week? Is it harmful to take every day? What does six day of one or two weeks mean?

Hello, I would like to know the method of using Castor Oil. And does it have any side effects? Thank you, Fakhra

I used Home Health castor oil-- cold pressed, cold processed, and hexane (poison) free. It has been safe for me.

I mixed one tea spoonful castor oil with 4 oz hot water and drank it before going to bed

The Castor Oil works wonders for Sinus Polyps!!!!!!!! I was in the proceess of getting ready for my first surgery to have my polyps removed.

After extensive research, I started applying castor oil drops 'inside' my nostrils each night before bed. I use about 3-4 drops in the nostrils. Within the week, my polyps have shrunk so much I can no longer see them when looking up my nostrils with a mirror! I can breath out of both nostrils now!

I'm also noticing that my sense of smell is slowly starting to return. I'll continue this regimen until I can completely get my sense of smell back so hopefully by May/June of 2012 I'll be 100% again. :)

David, How is the castor oil treatment going?

Hello Dave, I had sinus and polyp surgery in 2008. Thankfully, I've had not need to operate again. However, my sense of smell is minimum to none. I saw a nee ENT and he says that, small polyps are blocking my smell sensors. I wounder if your smell has come back after you are using the castor oil. Also, you only insert it in the nose right? Not ingested?

Thanks, Emilio

Dear All, I am very very excited to share my health news with you! I have had 12 operations for removal of nasal polyps, usually every 2-3 years since they regrow so fast and I am determined not to have another one. I have tried many remedies and of course, I don't need to mention the use of antibiotics and steroids. I am asthmatic as well and use usual inhalers and steroid treatments.

A few days ago, I was ready to call my doctor in order to obtain a referral for my 13th operation. I was desperate, both nostrils blocked and I could see the polyps almost protruding out of my nose! The fact I cannot breath through my nose, not only affects my sleep, speech but also affect me psychologically. I get depressed and experience "brain fogginess".

Thanks to Earthclinic, I have discovered the ACV which is fantastic - helps with even during asthma attacks.

Now, I discovered Castor Oil. I cannot tell you enough what amazing results I obtained in the past couple of days.

I have applied Castor Oil on my nostrils and I have also tried to create a Castor Oil pack. I only applied oil on my liver area (so not a pack as such - please research for a proper pack description), covered it with a flannel and applied a hot water bottle. Firstly, I have slept very well, secondly, I woke up with my nose UNBLOCKED. The night before I was ready for surgery seeing the polyps almost protruding through my nostrils, yet in the morning they retracted or shrunk so I was able to breath. I was not able to breath perfectly but it was a huge improvement. The visible swellings caused by polyps were gone and my face looked less like a 'boxer's' face. I am a long time sufferer and this was a huge breakthrough! I hope I will manage to avoid my 13th operation by continuing to use Castor Oil.

Ted's remedy: Ted considers that this condition might be due to rancid fat in the body and therefore he recommends Lecithin for fat breakdown, Vitamin C - 1000mg, ACV. [I am not fat (58kg- size 8-10 UK), however, I have noticed that when I lose weight and don't use wheat in my diet, my asthma and breathing problems are almost non existent.]

So, what I did:

1. Castor Oil applied on nostrils (a tiny bit on eyelids and wrinkles too! )

2. Castor Oil pack on the liver area

3. The following day when my nose was unblocked, I inserted diluted Grapefruit Seed Extract in my nose (acts as disinfectant and antibiotic - please research! )

4. I am taking Lecithin and Vitamin C and try to remove bread (to start with) from my diet.

Good luck to all - if it worked for me, a long term sufferer I am sure it will work for many of you.

Many thanks Earthclinic and again, good health to you all.

Dear Dee, I am also a long term nasal polyps sufferer living in UK.

Hi Daniel, I bought my Castor Oil in Whole Foods (formerly Fresh & Wild). It is organic, cold pressed. I have to say, to this day, my nose is completely unblocked. I am doing so well - my confidence is back, no more brain fogginess, sleep well and my nose doesn't look swollen like a professional boxer's one anymore! I wouldn't like to post my email address here, however, could you give me yours and will gladly send you my details. Good luck with ENT - I am determined not to go through another operation. Maybe this remedy will work for you too, best wishes!

Hi Daniel,

I, like you have had 4 operations to remove nasal polyps and each time they return. I also suffer from asthma. After my last op 3 years ago I under went an Asprin desensitisation program and I'm currently taking 300mg of Asprin daily. The polyps have returned, but nearly as bad as before, however my sense of smell has gone. I would like to try the castor oil, but was curious as to how it went for you? Vivienne

Nasal polyps ..asthma .. Possibly related to toxic mold. Common symptoms for black mold in the environment. You may want to look into it to prevent more problems. Or more surgeries. I use a nasal pump washed out I add 2 drops of iodine and fill remaining with mineral water. Spray each nostril 2 x. 4 hours away I use Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide spray to control the lung issues. Just a thought that might give you another avenue. Janet
