BACK TO ASK THE HERBALIST
ANSWERS FROM LORHYL:
Is there alternative medicine, herbs, or something
natural to do when you have sinus polyps instead of
There is a rinse for the sinus, using the Neti pot, and
a dilution of golden seal, 1/4 tspn per 1/8 c warm, not
hot water. Use this two times daily, 4 days per week.
Also make sure you use COQ10, 400 mg daily, with 4000 mg
Vitamin C, Ester C is best. This will help them to stop
growing as well, as previously I sent you information on
body cleansing, do this as well, as it will help your
body to stop producing abnormal cellular growth.
ANSWERS FROM KAREN:
QUESTION: I have been diagnosed with nasal polyps and was
put on prednisone to reduce the swelling. The effect was not
satisfactory. I would like to avoid surgery. Is there any alternative
therapy you could suggest for my condition?
ANSWER: Herbs are probably not the appropriate choice
here but if I were going to try something I, try herbs which are
astringent (shrink) tissue such as Eyebright, Yarrow, Sage, Sheperd's
Purse, Oak bark etc. I would probably try Eyebright, Sage and
Yarrow singularly or in combination. I would also use, the
berberine contain herbs such as Barberrry, Oregan Grape, Yellow Root
or the endangered Goldenseal if nothing else is available. The
problem would be getting the herb up there, you could use an extract
but the alcohol would sting as the solution was sprayed into your
sinus, you would have to get use to it. You would want to lay on
your back administer the herbal extract or combination and stay on
your back for a couple minutes so they don't drain out.
A nedi pot would also work.
