How to Remove Nasal Polyps

Many people who suffer from them  would like to know how to remove nasal polyps.

How to Remove Nasal Polyps

Nasal polyps are tear drop shaped growths that form inside the nose. They can cause breathing problems, sinus irritation, snoring, loss of taste, loss of smell and even sleep apnea, a more serious condition.

These growths are often brown or yellowish in color and can range in size from very small, to the size of a grape.

The polyps can be soothed with a couple of natural treatment methods that actually work very well.  And you can  use both of these methods.

 What Are the Natural Treatment Options?

The first method to ease the irritation and even help prevent growths in your sinuses is by simply rinsing your nasal passages frequently. 

Using a daily rinse with a saline solution will clear your nose, make breathing easier and can help sooth nasal polyps.

And again, keeping the nose clean can help prevent the polyps from forming in the first place because some evidence suggests that people with sinusitis are actually more prone to developing polyps in their noses than others.

The second method to ease the irritation that comes with nasal polyps is through the use of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is used for so many ailments.

Not only does it smell great, but because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it can help reduce the inflammation and swelling of nasal polyps.

These two options are great for obvious reasons. They involve absolutely no medications and no invasive medical procedures.

What Are My Treatment Options If The Natural Methods Don’t Work?

Other nasal polyp removal options include medications. Often someone who is suffering from nasal polyps may be prescribed steroids like prednisone, nasal sprays and drops for their nose. 

It could even be a combination of all of these.  And yes, sometimes medications don’t even fully get the job done!

That’s when things can get really frustrating for a person with polyps.

Surgery

If you have tried virtually every option other than surgery to alleviate the polyps in your nose, and your quality of life is still not where you want it to be, you may want to consider talking with your doctor about surgery.

It is true that surgery can indeed set you back a few days, but most of these surgeries are outpatient procedures.

Of course the downside to surgery is that 75% of patients who do have the surgery actually experience regrowth of the polyps within 4 years.

Always consult your doctor before trying any supplement or treatment option of your own, especially if you have a health condition or are on any medication(s).

  1. One thing that I liked here was how you explained a few ways to stop the issue before jumping into going to the doctors. Me personally hate the doctors so I’m always looking for ways around that. Also lots of detail in the website. You did a great job at adding the links in. Not to many but not to few. Also had them right at the right spots. Images were good. 

    I think you picked a great topic here. And explained everything very well. 

    keep up the good work!

  2. This is a great read. And important for people to know about. Because I have never heard of nasal polyps. This is a great find, very interesting to read up on. 

    Great article, keep up the good work! Can’t wait to read more.

    I just have a few questions

    Is nasal polyps common?

    Now is there any way of preventing nasal polyps?

    1. Thank you Genia. Yes, please feel free to share the article with your friends or loved ones.  I have included icons for the main social networks on my site for your convenience.

      To answer your questions, according to Mayo Clinic nasal polyps are most common in young and middle aged adults and usually result from “chronic inflammation associated with asthma, recurring infection, allergies, drug sensitivity or certain immune disorders.”

      They also go on to say that the best prevention is managing allergies and asthma,avoiding nasal irritants,practicing good hygiene, and using a nasal rinse.

  3. Nasal polyps sound like a lousy ailment to have to deal with. The fact that 75 percent of people have issues with them recurring is daunting.

    I think it is interesting that tea tree oil can be used to treat Nasal polyps; I know that tea tree oil has natural antibacterial properties.
    I think that it is always worth it to give natural remedies a try before choosing more invasive procedures, especially with the high reoccurrence rate of the polyps.
