An abnormal growth of tissue growing from a mucous membrane, polyps are commonly found in any of the membranes of the body including the colon, stomach, nose, sinuses, bladder and uterus. Stomach polyps, for example, are found in the stomach. While most stomach polyps are not and do not become cancerous, removal is typically the best option for treatment, which can be achieved by a variety of means.
What are Stomach Polyps?
Masses of cells that form on the inside of the stomach, stomach polyps develop in the stomach and are also called gastric polyps. While rare, stomach polyps are typically not cancerous but may contribute to the risk of stomach cancer. Symptoms of the condition include pain or tenderness in the stomach or abdomen, bleeding and anemia.
Home Remedies for Gastric Polyps
Although polyps of the stomach are not typically cancerous, the growths can increase an individual’s chance of developing stomach cancer. As such, eliminating the abnormal tissue is an important step in maintaining good health. Several natural remedies, including xylitol, cranberries and aloe vera, can be used to remove polyps in the stomach and prevent regrowth of other abnormal tissue.
Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol found in most plant material. Often used as a sugar substitute, the compound is also effective for preventing the reproduction of viruses, fungus and bacteria that may contribute to the development of stomach polyps. It also eliminates decay-causing bacteria and other toxins in the body.
Cranberries are a powerful fruit with a variety of healthful benefits. Used as a component for preventing certain types of cancer, cranberries are potent antioxidants that contain a variety of vitamins and minerals. The berries contain vitamin C, which aids in the removal of infection and other toxic substances that may contribute to the establishment of stomach polyps.
Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. Taken as part of a treatment plan, aloe vera eliminates toxins from the body and soothes the lining of the stomach. As such, aloe vera functions to naturally heal polyps and prevent further agitation.
Masses of abnormal cells, stomach polyps are best treated by natural elimination. Home remedies function to eliminate infection-causing irritants from the body and reduce inflammation.
[YEA] Update of Polyps and Stomach Polyps Remedies
My recent observation is that the best remedies to reduce the polyps is the sanguinaria tincture (blood root tincture), which is an alcoholic extract of bloodroot, that is given 3 drops three times a day. Some people have used black salve or in tablet form which I find them to be too aggressive and has occasionally caused some internal bleeding. The way this thing works is very different from other herps, it seems to be able to distinguise a skin growth, cancer, or polyps and it takes about 4 days to reduce the size of polyps by 1/2, whether they are stomach polyps, or intestinal polyps.

I have just learnt of this website today and its is very educative and i am grateful for most of the info from different subscribers.
My son is awaiting an operation for a stomach polyp that is a foot long. He is in so much agony most of the times. He cannot keep food down, and has lost so much weight. He is 25years old.
I am going to try and encourage him to try some of the remedies listed by some subscribers and see which one works for him.
Will keep you posted.

[YEA] I feel I should pass this on. My boyfriend has a syndrome called Muir-Torre. It makes you more susceptible to various cancers, especially rare cancers of the sebaceous glands and colorectal cancer. His sister died at 50 of colon cancer. He had a bout with skin cancer earlier this year, so I asked his Doctor to schedule a colonoscopy due to the high risk from the syndrome. First let me say, my boyfriend does not go gently into this good night. It takes monumental levels of anesthesia to knock him out. During the colonoscopy (in December 2013), the Doctor found innumerable polyps, but my boyfriend woke up in the middle, and they had to reschedule after a anesthesiology consult. The surgeon told me due to his family history, and the large number of polyps he saw, he wanted to remove his colon during the next procedure.
When we returned home, I scoured the internet for anything we could do to prevent this surgery. I read a study from Johns Hopkins that was promising with Curcumin in shrinking and dissolving polyps. He hates the taste of turmeric, so I found a supplement that contained turmeric with pepper and oil (necessary for your body to absorb the turmeric). He took this every morning since December. Well, we went for the second colonoscopy yesterday (May 2014). He only had 6 polyps, and the Doctor said they did not look suspicious. I am still in shock and awe. I feel we missed a speeding bullet. I will recommend Turmeric to anyone at risk of colon cancer.

Dear Ted, For two years I have been having stomach problems. Feeling very sick to my stomach, full feeling when I eat, alot of belching, and lots of gas. With that and being very tired of taking Tums and other medication so that I can eat! I decided to visit the doctor to get answers. I underwent alot of test, I took a breathe test (for ulcers) an ultra sound (for ulcers) And last but not least what I disliked the most was the endoscopy, which was a around 4 months ago. During the endoscopy the doctor did find that I had stomach polyps. He did not remove them. Being that they are not cancerous. And I am still having problems with my stomach. I am currently taking Zantac, which is used to help so that I could at least eat but how long is a person to live off of Zantac?
My question is how can I find a natural cure for stomach polyps? I have searched the Internet alot and have been unable to find the answers that I need. Please help me for I am desperate for answers. I am afraid for this to become something more than what it is! The doctors are not helping me here at all, for them I am just another sick patient. Thank you for reading.
