Sinus Papilloma

Posted by Maydaybefore (Brussels, Belgium) on 09/11/2012

Hi there everyone. I just got back from the hospital and my ORL told me, after a biopsy and a scan that I have INVERTED PAPILLOMA in my left sinus and I would need surgery to remove the tumor (which is benign). I read online a bit about this and it is not reassuring at all. The doctor seems convinced that the tumor is going to come back and or degenerate into cancer.... I'm only 36 and have a son to raise. Please help with any ideas!

God bless you! Ingrid

Hello Ingrid! I was diagnoised with the same thing 4 years ago.... I opted for no surgery, chemo or radiation. Mine was very large at the time and I need a team of surgeons! I was told the same thing it would come back or become cancer too. However I did not have a biopsy so really did not even know if it was already cancerous. Anyway, I went to a holistic Doc and went on a All Raw Food Diet! No junk no sugar! Just fruits and veggies! I juice carrots and beets, celery, cucumbers, ginger etc! I became very healthy and am doing great! My tumor is still there but not growing! Research all you can on holistic all natural ways to heal yourself! It works! :)

Hi everyone, This is just to let you know that I have found this cream named Cansema Deep Tissue and put it inside my nose on the papilloma. It stang like someone was burning me with acid for about 5 minutes, than subsided. My tumor was as large as a grain of rice. It took 5 applications due to the fact that I (my helping husband) hardly could reach inside, but now thanks to Good God and this cream, it is gone!

Hope this helps somebody!

Get a reusable nasal spray bottle and fill with distilled water, add 1 drop tea tree oil, 1 drop eucalyptus oil, and 1 drop of grape seed oil. Use it as you feel you need it.

Got to try Serrapeptase. Google it. It works a treat for all types of ailments especially polyps, cysts etc

Tea Tree Oil,Omega 3s

For Nasal Polyps, Tea Tree oil with the carrier Castor Oil works quite well.

If you want immediate relief try Omega 3 Fatty Acids. My nasal passages were completely closed by polyps to the point that I could only breath thru my mouth. I did some research and read about Omega-3's so I gave it a try. I took about 600 mg of Omega-3 in Fish Oil form and within minutes the swelling shrank enough that I could actually get some air thru my nostrils. Wow I was amazed.

Ted's Remedies

I am a migraine and polyp sufferer and I am currently taking the citric acid 1/4 tsp and baking soda 1/4 tsp formula three times a day just over 1.5 months now and yes it works slow, but it works!!! I have not added the other supplements just the citric acid and baking soda.

As a cautionary note I read that you are not to take this solution with antacids specifically those with aluminum. Also mix first with a small amount of water and then add juice after the solution settles. It causes what looks like carbonation so you get a cup full of fizz if you mix it all together at first. The castor oil tastes terrible and I can tolerate just about anything. I did not try applying it to my stomach but that is the route to go if you decide to do so.

Treat for Low Thyroid

Posted by Yearningtobreathefree (Tennessee) on 12/17/2016

Have had polyps at least 13 years, my doctor laughed when he saw them, said "They're the worst I've ever seen! " Nostrils 100% blocked 24/7, swollen nose, chronic infections, etc. Tried prescription steroid sprays, every alternative remedy I came across... little benefit. Posted here not long ago how saline nasal spray with Lugol's iodine helped greatly.

Now it seems I've finally found the real cause and cure, for me, and I believe many, even most of you, my fellow sufferers.

Some years back I found a blog where a woman told how raising her low body temperature cured her nasal polyps (and much else). Look up "Janey Hood nasal polyps" if you want to read her story, she's not selling anything.

For years my wife and I have been taking Lugol's iodine. Now I wonder if we took too much? Or perhaps it is merely the onslaught of chlorine, fluorine, bromine etc in the modern world that has lowered our thyroid function, though we avoid them as best we can.

My wife has been on thyroid medication for some time now. She does best on one of the natural ones, derived from animal thyroid tissue. I recently saw a list of 300 low thyroid symptoms, conservatively I had 47 of them, although far from overweight (a common symptom).

A couple of weeks ago I began taking a half or a quarter of one of her pills each morning, 30 minutes before coffee or food. The effects felt subtle, but I felt better, livelier, with a more positive attitude. Soon I noticed I was no longer mopping at my nose all day.

Now I'm breathing through my nose as I type. Have not had to have a tissue beneath my nose to prevent it running onto the pillow at night. Haven't even bothered with the saline/iodine nasal spray for the last week. Believe I've found the cause, and cure. Do yourself a favor, find a sympathetic doctor to test your thyroid and get treatment. Keep in mind many docs treat the test results rather than the patient. If you test "normal" you may not be.

Do a search for "hypothyroidism and nasal polyps" if you want more evidence.

An update: I've since found that rather than thyroid medication, simply taking one 750mg capsule of L-tyrosine each morning on an empty stomach keeps my nose in great shape. Can no longer see polyps in nostrils even using a flashlight and mirror. I am breathing through my nose right now as I type, my sense of smell is acute! Almost never need a tissue anymore, no longer bother with saline nasal spray with iodine, as I don't need it. Also I feel warm, more energetic, more motivated, better mood, so I believe all of this is due to giving the thyroid the support it needs.

Replied by Yearningtobreathefree

I am astonished, flabbergasted, simply can't believe that apparently no one has left any feedback on this! Now two years after I first posted this, the huge nasal polyps that completely obstructed my nose, the endless sinus infections, are still 100% gone! After at most a few months, I no longer needed to take either the natural thyroid medicine, nor the tyrosine.

Once the polyps shrank away, the vicious cycle of inflammation/infection was done. If any of you want to breathe absolutely freely and normally again, please try this approach.

Vegan Diet, Water Fasting

Hi y'all. i just wanted to share my experiences with nasal polyp cures which were found from a variety of sources, over a number of years. like all of us sufferers here, i have tried EVERY SINGLE suggested method of curing this ailment ever known to man

- Visited 4 different doctors for 2nd opinions, saw 3 specialists. underwent 4 different cat scans/xrays etc. spent almost $1000 on total medical expenses.

- NASAL IRRIGATION with a variety of salts and herbal/medical infuses

- NASAL SPRAYS of the cortisteroid, over the counter and prescription manner(rhinocort, etc)

- ATOPICAL CREAMS - cortisteriods of many strengths, in prescriptions. applied onto inner nasal walls

- APPLYING/swabbing chemicals eg h202 in powder and liquid form, of different strengths

- ANTIBIOTICS - 3 types, for a few months each


- HAYFEVER/ALLERGY tablets x 10 types

- VITAMINS - C, B complex, A, garlic oil, horseradish, zinc, omega3, fish oil,

- DRINKING LITRES upon litres of clear water ever day until the point of feeling unwell

- HOMEOPATHIC remedies


- EXTENSIVE HOME RENOVATION to replace all dust-mite sensitive areas, carpets to tiles/wood flooring, curtains replaced, bedding, EVERYTHING

- installing better heating/cooling systems

- IONIZERS to collect dust


BUT ALL TO NO AVAIL. well, they work initially, for perhaps a short period of time, but then relapse back to original, intoleratable state

but what i would like to share with you all, is my most recent attempt with WATER FASTING/VEGAN DIET

during my years of researching for a cure, the term 'fasting' did pop up alot, but i never paid attention to it, as it seemed difficult and too intensive to attempt and sustain as a part of my lifestyle

but after exhausting all other alternatives out there, i ultimately resorted to this method

yes it is incredible difficult to cut out all foods, and only consume VEGETABLES and FRUITS, and WATER (teas are allowed), and you do feel TIRED and lethargic, and dizzy most of the time during the intial phase, but after 1.5- 2 weeks, you begin to see GREAT RESULTS

I stopped my other remedies during this time period, and stuck to the FAST strictly

now it has been 3 weeks, and to my delight, the size of my POLYPS shrank immensely. the doctors were equally surprised at what a simple, non-evasive, safe, non-medical, natural, process of fasting could avail to. BREATHING is incredibly easier, EVERYTHING is looking up and up. it is very liberating!

on a side note, you LOSE WEIGHT in the process. which is always good.

So i urge you all to give this a shot. dont waste any more money in useless medicines and whatnot.

hope you all found this helpful! i was really excited about my discovery and really wanted you all to be made privy to the benefits of fasting! CHEERS! and bless you all!

Hi Laura,

Thanks for your post!
(I am a sinus sufferer also, with a polyp in the right nostril)

Your comments and suggestions, complete dietary changes, make sense! Every time I go on a fast, I feel significant relief in my sinuses (not to mention overall health). But no sooner I begin eating than I start to feel the congestion all over again. Other times when I eat light and restrict myself to wholesome and light diet (and avoiding diary, wheat, pasta, etc.) I feel OK too. Which leads me to believe there is a digestion and food assimilation (or lack thereof) component to sinus conditions. That is, the type and amount of food matter.

I think the trick might be in implementing the long term lifestyle changes - which most us may not have the courage to try. The obvious and discouraging part is that when we experience adverse results initially it is possible to scrap the whole idea.

Laura, in any case, I appreciate it if you could list some of the typical vegan diet you follow? How often do you water fast and when do you consume vegetables and fruits? I imagine one would intake water all the time. (A typical recipe would be nice to have.)

Thank you.

Like many other posters here, i think it may be related to wheat/yeast/dairy allergies that you may not be aware of. eradicating certain allergy-inducing foods from our diets would definitely help the polyp shrink, but ive been tested as having only dust mite allergies, so im not entirely sure why i feel better when im only eating pure, natural foods. i hope someone can provide some better insight.

I am trying to deal with my monster extruding nasal polyps with anti-inflamatory compounds like turmeric, mega-vitamins, horseradish, Chinese herbs and green tea. So far not much luck. I am just glad to know that my problems are indeed polyps; after living in a moldy house 20 years ago my sinuses have been blocked ever since; now polyps protrude from my nose but at least I know what the deal is.

Acupuncture helped a bit, but they did not know about polyps as such, and the herbal pills they gave me have little effect; covered in red dye and sugar, I soak that stuff off before I take the pills.

A juice fast seems to be the next logical step in allowing the body to break down this excess tissue.

As a fellow nasal polyp sufferer, i really feel for all the people who post here. i wanted to add my 2 cents, and i really must to say, the most effective cure is the one that most people have been advocating. by no means is it easy, but the root cause of the condition is wheat and dairy. its been medically proven that NOT CONSUMING these products will give you instant and long-lived relief. but the problem is its generally impossible to avoid these types of foods, and so most people continue to suffer from polyps, not knowing the reasons why. following this logic, i've been consuming as little wheat and dairy as possible for the past 2 years, and drinking as much water as possible. whilst my polyps are not gone, they have shrunk drastically and continued to remain that way, and most days i dont even feel them in my nasal passage. so please take this into consideration, for your healths sake. good luck!

This time homeopthy didn't work for me. Everytime something different seems to work though my first aim is to control sinus. Did that with Sudafed non drying medicine. Then drank Job's tears powder mixed in hot water. One tablespoon per day. After 2 days polyp has shrunk considerably. Job's Tears is popular with Japanese and in Asian society. It's made with 'Chinese pearl barley'.

I see mention about diet. In Indian shops you will find Harad powder that taken after food prevents formation of sinus.

My 5 yr battle with nasal polyps also ended with the elimination of grain from my diet. I also eliminated seed oils & replaced them with animal fats. Adding 1000 mg of ascorbic acid to 8oz of hypertonic saline in the form of nasal irrigation seems to help.


Vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract

Posted by Jennifer (Rochester, Ny) on 06/24/2010

High Doses Vitamin C and Grape Seed Extract:

I have had a sinus polyp for 12 years and have tried so many herbs and such to get rid of it to no avail. This past year I read an article (link is at bottom) on taking high doses of Vitamin C when ill.

Last week, right before my summer vacation I developed a serious sinus infection due to allergies. Based on the article I had read I decided to take high doses of Vitamin C along with Grape Seed Extract which is supposed to be 20X more potent than Vitamin C.

I took about 2000 MG (milligrams, NOT grams) of Vitamin C about every 3-4 hrs.for 3-4 days. In addition I took 100 MG of Grape Seed Extract 2x/ day--all with plenty of water. I was also taking Vitamin D and garlic but not in large quantities.

On day 4, I sniffed my nose and "something" moved to the back of my throat. I do not want to be rude but...I moved it into a tissue to examine it because it felt so strange and large. It wasn't your typical nasal mucous that comes with an infection. It looked like a large wad of gum and had the same rubbery texture but was dark red in color. I was pretty sure it was my nasal polyp and upon looking into my nostril with a light I could not see it anywhere. I have looked for several days in disbelief that it could actually be gone but it has yet to return a week later. I think it just finally "dried up" up and detached. I am breathing freer than I have for years and cannot believe what has seemingly transpired.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING LINK FOR INFORMATION ON TAKING HIGH DOSES OF VITAMIN C. I have found it to be very helpful for my own health concerns.

I hope this gives those suffering with nasal polyps a possible route to pursue for their relief. I encourage you to read a great deal and educate yourself on all risks and side-effects in regards to your own body and it's needs.

These nasal polyps are indeed pernicious. Horseradish did nothing for me. The polyps seemed to really make themselves known when I had a filled wisdom tooth break in two a couple of years ago. The dentist wanted to pull it, but I thought I just had a sinus infection with total blockage, so we agreed to wait til I had it cleared up before pulling the tooth. If my polyps clear up after I have the decayed tooth pulled, I will think that they are related. For now I am on steroid spray, which does shrink them a lot, high vitamin C, and trying to avoid dust and food toxins. Has anyone seen a relationship between a bad tooth and polyps? There must be a connection!

Hi Tom,

I have read that the roots of the upper teeth can extend into the lower sinus cavities below the eyes. If the roots are infected then the sinus can become infected. I notice my chronic sinus problem flares up when I fall asleep without brushing my teeth. I'm not sure if this is because of allergy to the dental plaque or because bacteria migrate up through the dentin tubules into the sinus. Hope this helps, Steve

About me: I have had chronic sinusitis for around 10 years. I saw a surgeon today and my CT scan shows quite a bit of sinus polyp blockage. I am strongly considering surgery after trying many natural options, but am still looking for a natural preventative. The essiac tea seems like an interesting option, which I have not tried yet.

I have just had ( 3 weeks ago) to have two upper teeth removed as one was cracked in half and the other had a failed root canal and both teeth were very decayed and were causing abscesses and I had little spots above the teeth that were filled with puss. Since having them removed I have noticed my polyp has disappeared. I also recently had a lot of orange watery liquid coming out of my nose and I felt that my polyp had popped but after reading your comment it might have been connected to my decaying teeth.

High Dose Vitamin D and Serrapeptase

I have suffered from sinus polyps with severe chronic sinusitis: lost sense of smell, congestion, drainage, 2 surgeries etc. Please listen very carefully because this protocol works

1 High dose Vitamin D: 1500 TO 20000 IU's daily (most vital)

2. Serrapeptase: 240.000 SPU's once daily (most vital)

3. probiotics:

4. Spirulina-1-2 tablespoon per day

4. Zinc 30 mg daily

5. clean diet: gluten free, dairy, yeast free. lots of fruit and veggies, lots of water, lemon water (the juice of 2 lemons in the morning with water)

Water Fasting

Posted by Vatos (Nijmegen, Netherlands) on 11/07/2010

Water fasting can heal sinus polyps because they are 'eaten away' in the cleaning and healing process. I think that water fasting is the first step. Because, eating 'non-allergenic' foods will only stop the polyps from swelling, but they will always remain because they are not completely removed. So eating those foods will help you only in the short term, AND you are devoted to eating non of those allergenic foods at all the rest of your life

I am also a nasal polyp sufferer and glad to have come across this site. I have tried the saline nasal wash with apple cider and even diluted apple cider on cotton bud directly applied to the nasal cavity but these hasn't helped much. One thing I notice though is that drinking chlorinated even filtered water seems to make it worse of course dairy products have a similar effect. So one advice I can give you guys is to avoid chlorinated water better distilled or spring water. I will also try this tea tree oil and hope to keep you posted on how I get on.
