Helminthic Therapy

Recurring nasal polyps are very debilitating. I have reversed them without surgery, I can smell so well now that shampoo can give me a headache.. I can smell soap.. I can properly taste food.. And I feel generally great. This was my method.

I am a 30 yo Australian male. I have lifelong asthma/allergies and ibs/polyps for almost 10 years. I have dustmite, shellfish, milk, dog allergies. I believe this life/medication has also led to some poor mental/energy levels.

I have been a lifelong user of ventolin/steroids, and have tried butekyo method, linklater/yoga breathing, dustmite desensitisation, giving up milk, giving up meat, staying indoors, travelling, airpurifiers, vitamin d (only 1000mg/day).

I had 7 bursts of prednisone last year.. And a bunch of other stuff along with surgery to remove polyps from all my antrums. However, the polyps quickly came back.. And nothing stopped them. I was soon twice daily rinsing with 2xNasonex up each nostril twice a day. Didn't work. I was then going against regulations (but on doctors orders) by squirting pure budesinode respules into my cavity's to hold them at bay.. Didn't work. It seemed only 25mg prednisone would hold them at bay, and only temporarily. I decided my life was doomed to misery.. misery I won't go into in case you are eating food.

When I heard about helminthic therapy I thought 'what bollicks! ' but I researched it for 7 months before believing there was a chance it may help (despite there being no published case of the therapy helping polyps).

In early June, I applied 35 hookworm to my body.

Within two months, my smell had come back a little. My surgeon had done an MRI scan and expected me to present in misery.. But I was fine. I cancelled myself from surgery (which is -free- in my country). But my symptoms returned, so I panicked and booked in the surgeon again. But soon I could smell even better than before!

After that first two months I even reduced my medication down to one spray of budemax in each nostril twice a day, along with a rinse. (Many days I've have only done the medication/rinse once, or not at all.. due to travel).

My smell started to go again, so I gave up milk since I have a slight allergy to it (this made my eyes really white). My smell came back very strong.. I can smell the aussie spring right outside my window. I can feel my nasal rinsing making it's way deep into my sinuses. I am about to cancel my final appointment with my surgeon.

IBS no longer causes discomfort. My asmtha/allergies are reduced, I've cut my seretide dose in half, I don't feel hyper-responsive to the elements anymore.

The hookwork haven't technically cured me, the disease is still there. But I think they've altered my immune system so I'm less hyper-responsive and therefore I'm less inflammatory. Thefore, they allow my medications to work much better, and allows my stomach to dissolve important nutrients better in the absence of ibs symptoms. I can also exercise more effectively (or at all).

Also, in my laymen understanding, nasal polps have an enzyme called chitinase present, which is something our body only uses to destroy helminths/hookworm which are made of chitin. But because we don't have hookworm anymore, our body seeks chitin protein elsewhere.. Such as dustmites, fungi, shellfish etc etc. My theory is: your immune system attacks the helminths, the helminths release an enzyme to reduce the presence of chitinase, or otherwise calm the immune system, therefore reducing the ability for nasal polyps to form (see this link for further info:

Anyway, I've sent in a further 45 hookworm which will mature in another month or so. I plan to eventually have about 100 depending upon advice.

I think the real test will be how I feel, say, 4 months after my final dose. I'm confident I'll only get better and in which case I'll go public with a video or some such thing.

Going to get back to smelling the roses.


(p.s. I've been spreading this message in some nasal polyp forums.. Such as on the open yahoo forum for helminthic therapy, if you'd like to google for that)

With every due respect to Tim's conviction and noting there is no follow up post for over 2 years, it was a dangerous can of worms anyway. About 740 million people in the world are infected with hookworm and not by choice, which is viewed as a disease and not a treatment, mostly through Asia, Africa and South America. Hookworm infections have virtually been eliminated in Australia, Europe and North America. I doubt that it follows that not one of those 740 million people don?t have nasal polyps too. Hookworms have a mouthful of teeth, which is scary enough, and mature into adults in the small intestine where they ingest blood, rupture the red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body and degrade haemoglobin. Diarrhoea, abdominal pain, intestinal cramps, loss of appetite, vomiting and anaemia are symptoms. Possibly it was a loss of appetite and a reduced food intake that gave Tim the results he claimed. As an off topic, cane toads were introduced into Qld sugar cane fields to control a beetle problem. The cane toads are now the bigger problem, impossible to eradicate and infest most of the northern half of Australia, and are killing off the smaller natural inhabitants ? there is a lesson in that. Cheers.

It's been great. I'm now been almost a year on this "change" (reduced dramatically the sugar consumption, "white" product (bread, rice, potatoe) and maintain a low carb and I'm very gratefull to have found this blog. I've been suffering from polyps for over 20 years, three sugeries and I was about to have one more because I had a sinus passage blocked completely with polyps and now I can breath like never before...Feeling great. IT hasn't been easy but very rewarding. I was very skeptical at first but given that I have tried just about anything out there I figured what do I have to loose to try one more method....thank you, thank youuuuuuuuu.

Hi Will. Well done to decrease your sugar consumption and go low carb, which is what caused your polyps to go away, and probably every other health issue you had, just by doing that. Infecting oneself with hookworms is totally unnecessary.

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.

Posted by Determined (Traverse City, Mi) on 12/14/2011

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.

I always boil my water for 5 minutes.

I feel like I just hit the jackpot with this website. I am at my breaking point with allergies and sinus problems. I had sinus surgery in april 2010 - for a few months, things were great. I started allergy shots in June 2010. Since April '10, I've had about 5 infections, for which I take an antibiotic/steroid mix. this is WAY better than the 1 infection every 6 weeks I was getting prior to surgery. but I am still stuffed up 90% of the time... The allergy shots haven't done anything so far. I am still taking allergy pills every night, and even use afrin when I just can't take it anymore.

I started bikram yoga in jan. '11. I believe this has helped tremendously. Being in the heated room really opens up your nasal passages but obviously we can't be in a 105 degree room 24 hours a day. I dust like a crazy person. I wash my sheets at least 2x a week... What really sucks is that if I take a sip of alcohol, my nose immediately closes up (and I love wine!! )

I thought about asking my Dr. about the interpolyp steroid injections, but I just don't want to put any of that stuff in my body any more!! My husband and I are planning to start a family soon, so I want to have all that junk out of me before that happens.

I am going to try some of these home remedies and I PRAY that something will work!!! I refuse to get surgery again, as it was obviously not a solution.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIPS AND ADVICE!!!! I'll let you know how it goes... :)

I just had in the last two weeks two polyps on their own coming out of my nose. Both were large and nasty, one more orange with blood traces in it with more irregular shape and the other more yellow with the shape of plum or peach kernel. The thing is I didn´t even know I had them! I went thru all sort of specialists in my shitty country and they were all giving me all sorts of corticoseroids to heal my problems, and my reactions to it were even worse then when not using all these pumps, antihisaminics and other drugs. Normaly my right nostril was for I don´t know for how many years now completely stuck and I thought it was due to my septum deviation. What happened really. I could not take any more nosedrops (oksimetazolinclorid) cause they started interfiering with my heart. This was a very serious thing and I had to find some other solution for my nose. I got a flu three weeks ago and I normaly could not breathe anymore. What I did is I took mint oil and I was applying it on my forehead (sinus frontalis ) and under my nostrils for lets say three times a day, and I also applied them a bit long the middle of my nose and between my eyes and under my eyes (trying to cover sinus maxillaris). Of course in this case, I  would have eyes closed and waited for some time untill the drops wear of.

So people mint oil! MINT OIL! Since yesterday since the second one came out I can acctually breath like I can not remember when was the last time I was breathing like that. I have to say I was also doing some pranayama exercises, trying to breath strong thru both of my nostrils... So I was now completely shocked, first of all I had no idea I had these monsters inside and second of all I can not belive my nose is finally free, and it doesn´t look so swollen any more, and I am happy these things are not inside anymore. So I recomend mint oil.! Be patient. but after one week make a little pause so that the skin can regenerate

p.s. my forehead skin I must say was a bit peeling after a few days but it helped!

Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Earthsong (San Luis Obispo, Calif) on 11/26/2011

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.

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.

Nasal Irrigator
Posted by Chad (Anchorage, Alaska) on 02/22/2011

I submitted a post in the last 24 hours regarding the use of vaporized PEG in an amazing reduction of nasal polyps. I then did some research, and found this interesting, and wondered if it may be related to my findings:

Polyethylene glycol inhibits intestinal neoplasia and induces epithelial apoptosis.

Supplementation of Apc(min) mice with 10% PEG 3350 (in drinking water) resulted in a 48% (P<0.05) reduction in intestinal tumor burden and induced 2-3 fold increase in mucosal apoptosis.

Dietary supplementation of polyethylene glycol (5%) also stimulated colonic mucosal apoptosis 4-5 fold in AOM-treated rats, the regimen that we previously reported to reduce tumor burden by 76% (P<0.05).

In summary, we demonstrate, for the first time, that PEG does protect against Apc(min) mouse tumorigenesis. The correlation between pro-apoptotic actions and chemopreventive efficacy of PEG in these models strongly implicates induction of apoptosis as one of the impending mechanisms of chemoprevention.

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

Water Fasting

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.

Vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract
Posted by Tom (Los Angeles, California, Usa) on 09/29/2010

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!

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.

Eliminate Yeast From Diet

i've realised that too, for me, i think its getting rid of dairy products that is causing the reduction in polyps. i think its related to mucus or something. but i also found that its immensely difficult to keep up the clean diet regime. once you eat something 'wrong', the polyps fire up again.

One of the main frustrations of having nasal polyps for years, (and trying about every conventional and wholistic remedy known) is that despite countless internet searches for information, nobody seemed to know what causes them. It turns out that, although allergies, crud in the air etc may aggravate them, the real, specific cause is now known: VEGF, or Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor. Look up an article on the Science Daily website called "Researchers Track Down Protein Responsible for Chronic Rhinosinusitis With Polyps". Now, VEGF (in too large amounts) enables the growth of blood vessels which in turn enable the polyps to grow.
The good news is that whereas there are drugs (complete with a range of likely side-effects) to inhibit VEGF, there are scientifically known and accepted lists of foods (and some herbs and supplements) which work as well or better, minus the side-effects. Do a search for "Dr. William Li's list of naturally anti-angiogenic foods". Also, go to PubMed and do a search for "Herbs that specifically inhibit vascular endothelial growth factor and have direct activity against angiogenesis".

I am very hopeful now of slow but steady progress toward being rid of these pesky polyps. If results take months, so what?
Meanwhile, I am going to enjoy some green tea, dark chocolate, red wine, and a bunch of delicious and healthy fruits and vegetables - especially in "green smoothies".

I will update you on any significant improvements in my condition (and the polyps have been _bad_ in recent months).

WOW!!! I just prayed about finally finding an answer to my long battle with severe nasal polyps is the hope of avoiding another nasal surgery. My chronic asthma and allergies are no walk in the park either. Currently my right nostril has a huge polyp completely obstructing it and descending to the entrance (lovely! ), at least the left one is partially open still. Had a great day packing it off and on with 50/50 water/hydrogen peroxide plus tea tree oil to get some relief and shrinkage. The good news is, yes it truly does work, it also stings and hurts a fair bit but it is, for me at least, a way to avoid surgery, time off and the $$$ that always entails. I will be looking up the good Dr. Li's anti-angiogenic foods too. The prospect of chocolate and green tea beats the bitter herbs I've been scarfing like candy today! Thank you for the great new information! May God Bless you for so graciously sharing this news with all of us!

I bought a nasal irrigator years ago and it helped me avoid a sinus surgery on my polyps. The attachment goes right onto your waterpik and the water pulses at the same rate as the non-functioning cilia in your sinuses. A little salt water/baking soda mix and it actually is refreshing. Try it! I still use it when I get flare ups and it gets all the "gunk" out of there!

Really!? that is so great! i really want to try out this method too. i came across different forms of essiac; teas, tinctures, capsules. which is the best type in your opinion? it sounds so unlikely that it would be effective, because its only light dosages of essiac, but what do you know, it appears that it really works! i also researched that polyps cannot be sneezed out as they are stuck literally to your skin as membrane...hmm...can you give me more detail as to how your son cured his polyps? thanks!

Hi I was very interested in your thread. Our 12 year old son suffers from nasal polyps and I would love to find something to get rid of them. I would like to try the 4 herb essiac tea, but am a bit confused - are these 4 different types of tea, and, if so, what teas are they? Also, can you tell me how to obtain them. Many thanks.

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.

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!

Nasal Polyps: This treatment is very effective but not a cure. Pulsatilla 30, 5 pills twice a day under the tongue, for 10 days. Wait one week. Then take Sanguinaria 30, 5 pills twice a day under the tongue for 10 days. Wait 20 days for results.

Sinus Headache Link
Posted by Sumiyeh (Rockville, MD) on 06/02/2009

I have been diagnosed by an allergist/ENT with nasal polyps but my symptoms are a bit different from those declared by the rest of you. I don't have a cure or remedy to offer, but thought that my unusual but definitely related symptoms might shed some light for others.I don't suffer from the typical stuffiness and loss of smell, nor from drippiness and excessive tissue use. In fact, I seem to have almost no "nose action" going on at all (other than sneezing, which to be perfectly honest is not bothersome for me usually), until one day suddenly, I get an onslaught of a terrific sinus headache accompanied with debilitating nausea that can only be relieved with finally vomitting. I have been told since my youth (age 10 or so) that I have post-nasal drip (my only complaint then was terrible bad breath). I believe that the polyp causes or contributes greatly to the post-nasal drip and a build-up of mucous in my stomach which is the source of the great nausea. Another reason to instruct your children NOT to snork down the drainage instead of blowing their noses; that stuff builds up down there and the only relief is for it to come back UP!

Anyway, my question for the rest of you cure-seekers and diagnosticians is: does it seem plausible that this is not actually sinus or allergy based, but more of a migraine situation? I have undergone allergy blood tests and the results were very inconclusive. I suffer from this sinus-headache/nausea syndrome in all seasons of a 4-season region. It does seem to be worsened by consumption of frozen dairy (especially at night) and by having damp hair (i.e. not blow-drying my hair immediately after showering).

I appreciate any input!

Sinus Headache Link
Posted by T (Maryland, USA) on 06/03/2009

My son had the bad breath and on occasion coughing to the point of vomiting, which like yours came up with mucous in it. We went through the mill for several years with docs insisting he had seasonal allergies, asthma, etc. A nuumber of rounds of antibiotics were also given for sinus infection flare-ups due to all this. Like you, he generally didn't have dripping or stuffiness or any such symptoms you would think he "should" have by their (mis)diagnoses. When I stopped giving him milk, he stopped having problems.

He didn't have the headache problems you do, but I think it would be worthwhile to try stopping all dairy for a few weeks and see if that changes things for you. During that period, taking some ACV as instructed elsewhere on this site may be good to do just for general purposes. Something else that you might consider - my son recently had several slices of pizza with extra cheese (American cheese is no problem for him, but pizza cheeses are). Within a day, that telltale swampy smell began on his breath. I have a bottle of Atomidine here (it's a type of iodine, available at Amazon). I put a tiny smidge of a drop in juice and gave it to him, and I swear that 2 sips was all it took - the bad breath was instantly GONE and didn't come back! We were both floored. I believe the Atomidine knocked out whatever was brewing there from a dairy reaction. As in all things, you should always research for yourself before trying. Just a tip for something that you might find useful. Best of luck, and please do update us!

I am suffering from bilateral Nasal Polypus for last 14-15 years. I am taking Homeopathic treatment from a doctor locally. Once it happened that one of the doctors prescribed Lycopodium and as a result the ring worms errupted throughout the body with red rings and itching. By the regular treatment the ringworms have been cured. The nasal polypus generally inflates when i get directly in touch with air i.e. fan, cooler or while travelling. It also occurs when I go open headed during night specially when it is somewhat cool and there is some moisture i.e. fog/dew. The present doctor prescribed 'Silicea 200 / 1M along with some other medicines. It get cured for 3-4 months. It again occurs when there is weather change or get in touch with air. Added to it as an other effect I have got lichen (Exema) got eriupted on left leg just near the ankle.

I was just courious as to how many days before you could tell it was working (shrinking)? How long did you swab before they were completely gone. And is swabing better than squirting? Thanks for any info you have I'm in desperate need. I do mouth breathing. My polyps are so swollen until people something think that I need to clean my nose and I have to explain that it's a polyps not any thing I can blow out of my nose. It is so embrassing at time.

Hi, after reading your post, i went out to buy h202, only to realise it is not something that is easily found in Australian pharmacies. thus i ordered a bottle of h2o2 capsules (food grade), the type where there is white powder inside the clear capsules. anyway, for a weeks i opened the capsule, poured out the powder, and cotton swapped it onto my polyps. and immediately i felt a tingling sensation. after waiting approx 30mins i found that it was incredibly easier to breathe, and the polyps shrank. but i find that the process needs to be repeated 3-4 times a day, whereby the more frequently it is applied (above 3/4 times), the less effective it becomes. i also tried snorting a bit of the powder in attempt to make it 'reach' the deeper tissues, but there was no effect.

i have a question, as to how much h202 should one apply? and is an overdose detrimental? ie will it damage the tissue?

thanks if anyone could reply.

Posted by Kieran (Cookeville, TN, USA) on 04/16/2009

Jonathan from Melbourne, Australia: I'm delighted to hear the h2o2 is helping you. I have never heard of the stuff coming in capsules, but the effects sound similar. I don't know about dosage, as I said above I am merely dipping a cotton swab in the (liquid) hydrogen peroxide 3 times daily and swabbing the polyps. I am no expert on the stuff, and can only say that the post I found on curezone said "Going on 2 years now...the hydrogen peroxide -though it burned- never damaged the skin in my nostrils...". So far I personally have experienced no ill effects. We are all our own guinea pigs here with folk remedies, what you do is up to you - and yet it was long-term use of prescription corticosteroid nasal spray that gave me nosebleeds. So far I am pleased. If I develop any problems I will let you know. Good luck, and I appreciate all feedback, we can all learn from each other.

Posted by Kieran (Cookeville, TN, USA) on 04/17/2009

I hope you are all keeping in mind the h2o2 I read about is 3%. Do NOT even think of using, for example, the 35% food grade product mentioned here, that stuff unless greatly diluted will burn even tough skin, let alone delicate nasal mucosa. Prompted by Jonathon L.'s question re deleterious effects, I have tried searching for more info...much of it is too technical for me. I did see some implying h2o2 possibly causing eye irritation. I merely swab the polyps, which seems like it might have less risk of the stuff getting up into the eyes via the tear ducts than squirting it in the nose and sniffing. I would greatly welcome any further info about safety of this approach.

Hello! I have been suffering from nasal polyps going on 4 years. I've tried allergy shots, I do nasal flush, steriods, anti-biotics (numerous times)...if someone told me to stand in my head and eat peanut butter I would try. Its so frustrating and depressing! I've seen 3 specialist and 2 have left the office I go so i've had to keep staring over with a new Dr. I now have no insurance and sprays and meds are too expensive (even tho they don't do anything). The only thing that has worked it steriods and anti-biotics at they same time but then my smell goes away once i'm off the combination. Its so frustrating!!! When I go to friends house most people bring a bottle of wine, I bring a box of tissues. I am used to it now but people always ask if I'm sick. I used to be so shy about blowing my nose because it's so un-attractive but now it just has to be done. It's so gross but what can I do? I've single handedly wiped out a small forest. I just hate it! My last Dr said just keep up what you've been doing and see you in 6 months. What?!? Suffering? But anyways...i am very excited to try this! i hope it will help! Thank you for the advice! I hope your nose is treating you well. Not being able to smell it terrible!!! i don't know if I smell! So I apologize to everyone if I do! Thanks!

I have been trying the hydrogen peroxide - using a cotton swab with H2o2 - for just two days now. Almost immediately I noticed improvement in my runny nose. But as of today I can tell you that the polyps are shrinking. We'll have to see how far this progresses, but it is moving in the right direction.

Hi Jonathon,

I had sinus surgery last year April - it took 6 weeks to heal and for a few months my sinuses were clear. Then I started having trouble again and a few months ago my sense of smell disappeared.

I have started nasal irrigation with a solution of 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp bicarb and 1/4 tsp Hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water.( Use a bit of boiling water to dissolve the salt and bicarb)

This seems to be working very well - if I use more peroxide it burns - you will have to test how much you can take, but according to my research it is 1%.

Worked Temporarily

Although h2o2 gave dramatic results at first, they didn't last, in my case. (Maybe for others it might be different...or not? I don't know) Since then, with the polyps very bad again, in desperation I used a corticosteroid nasal spray for a while (ask for the generic one, much more reasonably priced than the competition). This relieved the symptoms a bit. I also took a non-drowsy 24-hour antihistamine for a while. Then I added a homemade nasal wash - a nasal spray bottle of water, a small pinch of salt, another of baking soda, 2 drops of grapefruit seed extract, and a pinch of xylitol. This was fairly helpful. Since then I tried taking something called "No-Fenol" along with a low phenol and low salicylate diet - to no effect.

In the long run I have found just 2 things that make a major difference for me: I have to completely avoid eating chicken eggs, and likewise no cows' milk or cheese, no lactose. Duck eggs seem to be fine. Goat milk seems to be fine. Whey from cow milk I think is ok. Butter is fine. With this approach the polyps have shrunk quite a bit. I breathe partly through my nose at long last once again, and my sense of smell is back! I found which foods to avoid by trying periods of time avoiding them and then not, repeatedly. Incidentally, the lactose in an enzyme supplement not only made my sinuses worse, but gave me a headache and general aches and pains too, along with bad dreams, negative thoughts, and irritability.

Best of luck to you all, keep trying, find your triggers and avoid them and you can and will get much better.

Hi, I am living in london and I am 49 years old. I have been suffering from nasal polyps for 10 years but have had a runny nose since I was a child. I have always thought that I have a low or bad immune system. I have not tried surgery as there is a high chance of reoccurrence. I have gotten some relief from using honey a drop in each nostril once or twice a day(I have not tried manuka honey) topographically (aplied with my fingertips). Also Cephagraine Drops two drops once or twice a day helps a lot. Chinese herbs helped a lot but I did not take it for long enough.

In the last 2 months I have been using hydrogen peroxide of 3% internally starting with 3 drops and going up to 10 to 15 drops per day in boiled water. Because of healing crisis I have taken it on and off, and some days I have just forgotten to take it. My nose is now clear and I need to carry on for about 2 more months (three months is sugessted) in Healing with whole foods.... Paul Pitchford. From what I have read H Peroxide rather than a cure it is a natural imunity booster. Please read for more guidelines and other uses.

There are books also and loads of info on the internet.

For more guidelines and other uses. It is great for the skin. Read about side effects it is important and it is better to get the food grade(amazon ebay ect. ) and dilute if necessary with ditilled/purified water.

I think the way forward is to do this and then try to stick to a diet which keeps me healthy.

In Ayurvedic medicine they recommend the following CEPHAGRAINE drops recomend these things. (I find it very hard to keep to the diet) but it keeps the polyps from growing.

Early to bed is very useful.
1) Consumption of turmeric, garlic, ginger and black pepper is recommended for these patients.
2) Prefer bland diet
Dont 's
1) Avoid fried and spicy food recipes.
2) Avoid food items, which cause indigestion and constipation.
3) Avoid exposure to excessive heat, cold and rain.
4) Avoid daytime sleeping and spending sleepless night.
5) Avoid curd, bananas and dried things. (Sinusitis)
6) Avoid drinking cold water and ice cream. (Sinusitis)
7) Avoid exposure to rain, excessive cold wind, smoke and dust. (Sinusitis)
8) Avoid irregular dietary habits. (Sinusitis)
9) Avoid daytime sleeping. (Sinusitis)

Saline Rinse
Posted by Ron (Emporia, Kansas) on 02/14/2009
5 out of 5 stars

A few years ago I was having difficulty breathing through my right nostril. I used a small flashlight to see what was blocking the nostril. I saw a polyp about the size of a good sized pea. It was positioned less than an inch from the nostril opening. I touched it and it was hard. I was a little frightened by it. At age 55 I had never experienced one of these.

I started researching and found that Sodium can shrink swollen membranes. I then found out about Nasal Irrigation. Nasal Irrigation is where you add a small amount of salt to warm water and let the saltwater pass into one nostril and out the other. All I had available to use was a 16 ounce measuring cup.

I boiled about 4 ounces of water, put it in the 16 ounce measuring cup. Then, I added enough room temperature water so that the water was barely warm. In the summer I need to add about 12 ounces of water to the 4 ounces of boiling water and in the winter I only need to add about 8 ounces of water. I then added a little over 1/4 of a teaspoon of regular table salt. I did the following over the kitchen sink.

I turned my head so that my left ear was facing the floor. Then, I slowly poured the salt water into my right nostril and let it flow out of the left nostril into the kitchen sink. When the measuring cup was empty I stopped.

I would then place my finger on the left side of my nose and close the left nostril and rather forcefully blow excess water out of my right nostril into the sink. Then, I did the same with the other nostril. I then went to the bathroom and used toilet tissue to clean the excess moisture from the nostrils.

I did this every evening. After a few days I looked into the nostril again with the small flashlight and the polyp was gone. I was surprised and delighted.

I have continued to do this nasal cleansing almost every day since. I haven't had a nasal polyp since that first one. I'm now 64 years old. I also noticed it helped keep my sinuses clear most of the time = better breathing.

I later got what is called a Neti Pot, which a a little pot designed for the purpose of doing a nasal irrigation. The cheap plastic ones work for me. Most health food stores have them. I noticed over time that the first couple of hours after doing a nasal irrigation, my nostrils tend to be a little dry. After a couple hours they moisten back up. That's why I do the nasal cleanse at least 2 hours before going to bed. This allows the nostrils time to moisten before bed = better breathing.

A couple details:

1. I found it better to stop the cleanse just before the cup was empty. I pinch my nose so as to retain some of the saltwater in the sinuses. Then, I keep the nose pinched and bend down with the top of my head pointing towards the floor to the count of 20. Then, I keep the nostrils pinched and stand up straight and tilt my head back (when the head is tiled back you can stop pinching the nose and the water will not drain out). I would keep that position to the count of 20. Then I would blow out the excess water. This seems to allow the saltwater to get deeper into the sinus cavity.

2. If, after the first cleanse, my sinus cavity still feels a little stuffy, I'll do a second nasal irrigation (I don't have to do this very often). With practice I became more aware of when my sinus cavities were clear or not.

3. One day I forgot to put the salt into the warm water. When I started the cleanse my nostrils felt really irritated and sore. I stopped and added the salt. When I continued with the nasal cleanse the saltwater was soothing. This is how I discovered how salt is soothing to irritated skin and how water alone can be irritating to sensitive tissue.

In response to Ron: thank you so much for the detailed story. Esp your tips, such as to move head in diff directions, ensuring the entire nasal cavity is rinsed.

I have had the same nasal problems, and have been irrigating for months now...I get some relief but wow, does my nose get dry and itchy!! Not to be gross, but well, there's hard matter in there (ahem, very hard boogers) afterward and I just have to remove it...or else I can't breathe well. So, that probably infects it even more, and on & on the infection cycle goes . Does anyone know of a nice, repairing moisturizer I can put IN my nostrils? Thx. I so adore EarthClinic and all you ppl who post!

Hi Julie - I use a saline rinse in a neti pot (just a baking soda and kosher salt mixture) and found that, although it helped my sinus problems, it really dried out my nose. I've started adding a couple of drops of food-grade glycerin (found in the health food stores) to the neti pot. It really helped. Then, throughout the day, I just put a tiny amount of coconut oil in each nostril to keep it moist (the air in Calgary is extremely dry). It's made a world of difference. Good luck!

I have nasal polyps and have tried everything including surgery to remove them with no success. I read that blood root was used before western medicine to successfully treat polyps. I'd like to know if black salve can be used to treat nasal polyps.

Posted by Chad (Anchorage, Alaska) on 12/24/2009

yeah, i am also looking at Bloodroot for treatment of nasal polyps, but can't find any information about it. wonder why? i do have extensive experience with the black salves, and know the positive/negative aspects of bloodroot, but seeing no decent alternative to nasal polyps, i am curious about mixing 1 Tblspn of Bloodroot and 1 Tblspn of Zinc Chloride (ZnCl2) in 8oz (240ml) of water, and using the tea as a nasal spray ... gosh, with 7 billion people in the world, i'd think someone has already tried this! do i have to be the guinea-pig? :)

Posted by Sylvie (Gloucester, Uk) on 06/19/2011

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?!

Posted by Gailforce66 (Chicago, Il) on 06/19/2011

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.

To one Joanne from Poughkeepsie, New York, USA

I am something of an amateur "artist" of most things holistic and have no real education on the matter so take this as you will.

However I have been attempting to treat my female counterpart's Nasal Ployps, which have lead to several sinus surgeries being required to remove them (one every year) however they kept growing back faster and faster each time.

My attempt to treat/cure said condition took the form of a few things,
1: beeswax candles burning for approx 30 mins every day around her (cleans the air and gives off negative ions among other things)
2: the daily application of an olive oil based medical oil I created myself... in a nutshell it was olive oil, Castor oil, tea tree oil, rosemary, basil, lavender and a few other odds and ends all mixed in and left to distill in my closet for approximately a month before hand.
3: a "shot" (alcoholic sized) of Apple cider Vinegar or Balsamic vinegar every day.
4: organic whole foods as a diet... no carbonated drinks, fast foods etc.
5: Some rather esoteric things like Reiki and other types of Energy work.

She still has polyps however they are nowhere near the size that they should be and it's been upwards of a year and a half with no need for surgery. However all of the above was only ever done in theory... trying to actually push that all on someone who would rather just take a sinus steroid or puffer to make her feel better for a while is another matter all together.

However the point remains, nothing else has changed in her life but what I imposed upon her, most recently I've stopped forcing such things on her and let her make the decisions... and she seems to me to be degenerating again.. unfortunate, but that is her choice and I can't make it for her.

Good luck with your issues, I am more then available for giving advice as I can... sufficed to say anything I ever recommend I test on myself first.

My husband has suffered with nasal polyps for many years, had surgery 23 yrs. ago but of course they're back. Like you said, add allergies or a cold to polyps and you can't breathe at all, pure misery.

A few days ago he came down with a bad cold, couldn't breathe. He started with this treatment I read about on the net, homeopathic.

Here it is:

Pulsatilla 30, 5 pills twice a day under the tongue, for 10 days. Wait one week. Then take Sanguinaria 30, 5 pills twice a day under the tongue for 10 days. Wait 20 days for results. It's only been a few days (3 or 4) with the Pulsatilla, but the cold is gone and the breathing is back to "normal". He also began taking 1 Tablespoon flax oil daily, which I plan to increase to twice a day. I'll post results after the treatment is complete.

I bought the Pulsatilla 30 at the local health food store, and ordered the Sanguinaria 30 online from The Vitamin Shoppe. There may be variations of the name, like Sanguinarius or something. It's actually bloodroot.

I should mention that when he came down with this awful cold, he began coughing yellow phlegm almost right away. He took a nebulizer treatment with H2O2, 3%, diluted 1 to 3 with sterile distilled water (boil distilled water for 5 min. and store in jar). Bronchitis cleared up after a couple of days of 1-2 treatments a day.
