Sinus Polyp Remedies

Last Modified on Feb 12, 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.

[YEA]  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.

[YEA]  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?

[NAY]   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.

[YEA]  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.

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.

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.

[YEA]  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
Fairfax, Virginia

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?

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?

Posted by Determined (Traverse City, Mi, Usa) on 11/01/2011

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.

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.

[YEA]   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

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

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I am putting castor oil in my nose for last 10 days and I have seen visible improvent in my breathing. I dont think that polyps have shrunk drastically but for sure improvement is visible.

Castor is okay but I moved to homeopathy and wow it really works. More update on homeopathy section.

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?
Replied by Emilio

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

[YEA]  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.

I have had four nasal polyps remove surgeries so far and I am refered to ETN specialist this month. Aniyway I would be appreciated if you could tell me where you bought a castor oil. Basically could you give me your email address in order to stay in touch with you? Regards, Daniel

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!

[YEA]  I believe I can provide some help to those who are suffering with polyps and the associated nasal inflamation, runny nose, postnasal drip that comes with polyps.

First, there is an underlying congestion problem caused by any number of factors ranging from environment to diet. One nurse once told me that she had observed a correspondence between those who had chronic congestion and those who had a particular blood type and she believed the blood type produced a thicker mucus.

Second, those who suffer with such congestion will correspondingly be most likely to find an infection developing in the sinus cavity... because it is inflamed and as such an infection can more readily grow there.

Third, the infections in such people tend to be cronic and hence the cronic infection will produce the polyps that is housing either, virus, fungus or bacteria or a combination of the three. The variability of such a mix is the reason why polyps are of a variety and "behave" differently, some spreading.

Fourth, a partial solution: As to the underlying congestion issue (see the item "First" above) I have no suggestion but as to the consequential result of infection (see item "Second" above) we can aleviate the infection easily. By using on a regular basis "collodial silver" to knock out the "oft occuring" infections we can keep the sinus cleared of the congestion, postnasal drip and running nose because those three are the by- products of the infection. The polyps will not grow or will die off with constant irrigation of a silver solution.

I use silver in my sinus cavity when ever I feel any sign of post nasal drip or runny nose; sign of a cold; congestion like a stuffy nose. I use an ear syringe to squirt the colloidal silver (gently) into my sinus cavity and there will be a stinging on the dominately infected side.

The reason some people get results from Tea Tree Oil is that TTO is an anti viral and anti biotic and anti fungal. I do not think it is nearly as effective as colloidal silver and TTO can have some side effects as enumerated in preceeding posts.

I make my own colloidal silver, a very simple process.

So in conclusion: An underlying congestive sinus is caused by any number of reasons but the real problem is the consequential infection of the cronically thick mucus passages. If the infections linger, polyps will develop. Thus, one must irrigate the sinus passages with colloidal silver to eliminate the secondary effect... cronic infection which is causative of the polyps.

Yes, I have found Colloidal Silver to be the absolute best thing for my constantly runny nose, and post nasal drip. I have suffered this for more years than I can remember. I don't know about polyps though. I am a blood type O. I use a bottle that has a nasal saline spray in it, and empty it.

Hello Robin, I've used Colloidal Silver (CS) for 18 years. The blood type observation was just to say that the underlying congestion is not caused by a virus/fungus/bacteria but vfb sure do grow in a constricted nasal passage... It's an infection factory! I'd love to get rid of the underlying constriction (thick mucus) but at least I keep it from becoming something worse... Turning into an infection. I take a little bottle of CS with me even on trips. The slightest indication of infection and I irrigate the nasal passages. Before I knew of CS I'd get 3 or 4 serious infections a year. Often they would become a serious upper respiratory infection.

Sometimes I do have to fight off a persistent infection for a week or longer but the infection never gets past the sinus cavity.

Best to you in your health journey. Post here if you want to elaborate or ask any questions.

Just read most of the comments about Polyps, I think most of the comments were excellent, I think David from Fountain Inn had it pretty well spot on, also some of the remedys might work for some and not others as other people have already said and I have just found out that we have a immune system slightly different from other people and its the reason we get the problems that we have, I have had sinus problems for as long as I can remember, the other day my ears were so bad I went to see the ENT Dr, My daughter said why not check your nose at the same time I thought why not long time since last check, she discoverd a large Polyp in the right side two smaller ones left side, I'm on loads of medication which works (I can smell and taste food now) strange that most people seem to have large one right side, also I would like to say I'm a great beliver in Castor oil and ACV, so when med stops salt bath and some of the others, all the best to every one.

Exactly how do I go about this CS nasal treatment? Do I mix the CS with xylitol or water? Is your procedure similar to sinus flooding? What if I do not make my own CS, which one is best to buy?
Replied by Dave

Hello Alan from London:

You give yourself a Colloidal Silver "irrigation" by ingesting the solution into sinus by squirting gently with an ear syringe... Or putting about a teaspoon into palm of your hand and just sniffing.... or by using a nettie pot...

I prefer the ear syringe because the pressure from the squeeze forces the solution way back into the sinus cavity. It will sting a lot the first time you use it... But ten minutes later when you do it again, it will only sting a little. The silver is killing the virus/fungus/bacteria...whatever microbe is there.

Also squirt into the ears two or three times during the day. That will not only knock out the infection, if any, in the ears but between the squirts into sinus and ears, the eustacian tubes will also be relieved of infection.

As to your other questions: I use the CS at about 100 parts per million (ppm). Here's the test for knowing if your CS is strong enough: If you are infected and you are; does the application sting when you squirt into sinus and then within five minutes are you beginning to drain from the sinus?

If yes to those questions your CS is sufficiently strong and you have a good brand.

I started using my own little "generator" twenty years ago because I was so prone to colds, sinus infections and consequently chest colds. CS saved my life. I've only had five chest colds in a twenty year span. Prior to CS in my life, I was getting two or three a YEAR. (I was also plagued by migraines, but CS didn't help that... Colloidar silver kills microbes but is not a "SILVER bullet" for everything.)

If you decide you want to get your own generator (just two strands of silver with capacity to plug into socket or battery of 3, 9 volt, batteries. Mine cost less than a hundred bucks) google something like: colloidal silver generator, or economical colloidal silver generator. I've had mine for 20 years with the SAME strands of silver. Just got a new one because the wiring on the first went bad. I got that fixed so now I have two. (I am not associated with any silver manfacturer, nor do I sell or work for any silver making company. I'm a lawyer.)

Best to you and write back for any clarification. Dave

(By the way, I love London.)
