Polyps are growths that line your nasal passages, or sinuses.

They are soft, painless and noncancerous, Polyps are generally harmless but can cause recurrent trouble.

If nasal polyps get too large, or if there is a group of nasal polyps, they may block your nasal passages and make it hard to breathe

Nasal polyps’ symptoms and signs may include the following:

  • Infections
  • Pain in your upper teeth
  • Vocal changes

Natural treatment protocol –

  1. Jala neti daily – Keeps nasal passage clean and prevents mucus build-up
  2. Steam inhalation using mixing eucalyptus essential oil and tea tree essential oil in water (It can also help thin mucus and prevent blockage and inflammation of the breathing passages.)

Hello Rajesh,

Nasal Polyps are a result of a condition called as sinusitis. Sinusitis is a condition that results due to the deviation of the nasal septum, respiratory tract infections, certain allergies, or other medical conditions like HIV, cystic fibrosis, etc.

Sinusitis may lead to nasal congestion, thick discolored discharge from the nose, pain, inflammation, and tenderness around eyes, nose, cheeks, forehead, reduced sense of smell and taste.

What to do?

  • Avoid upper respiratory tract infections. Stay away from persons having a cold and cough.
  • Avoid cigarette smoking.
  • Avoid dust, dirt, and polluted air.
  • Try to manage your allergies by avoiding allergens. 
  • Practice jal neti. This will help to clear the sinuses.


  • Eat only plant-based natural foods. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal foods as they may also trigger the allergy because they are not meant for our human digestive system. 
  • Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. 
  • Include salads, sprouts, nuts, and beans in your diet.
  • Say no to alcohol.
  • Use cold-pressed oil for cooking instead of refined oils as refined oils may also lead to allergy. 
  • Drink plenty of water during the day to eliminate the toxins out of the body and also to be hydrated. 

Yoga and Pranayam 

  • Practice anulom-vilom pranayam regularly. 
  • Do suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Do paschimottan asana, gomukha asana, trikona asana and padahasta asana.
