I have always preferred using natural remedies for the treatment of ailments. Sometimes I resort to using mainstream medicine if I am unable to find anything about a natural remedy for a particular ailment. Thank you for not only sharing a post about nasal polyp remedies, but also for sharing several natural options so that I can choose which route to take! I’m going to look into the Elder and Eyebright, and luckily I already take a healthy amount of the vitamins you listed. ☺


Hi Elisha,
Glad you found the site helpful. I have searched hi and low to find alternative therapies for my nasal polyps other than surgery and steroids. I have had nasal polypectomy in the past which lasted for around 12 months before I noticed a return in my symptoms. It was then that I found some natural treatments which have kept my condition under control now for quite a while. I think the key is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and watch what goes in to your body. Keep that healthy and you will notice benefits with nasal polyps.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
