Homeopathy in nasal sinus polyposis

nasal sinus polyposis

Naso-sinus polyps (causing nasal -sinus polyposis) are benign growths that develop on the lining of the nasal cavities and sinuses. They can be the cause of ventilatory disorders (nasal obstruction, asthma) and secondary infections . Their spontaneous evolution over time is towards a progressive increase in their volume and towards a chronic catarrh of the mucosa which evokes, among other things, the sycotic reaction mode. Indeed, various factors (humility, allergenic substances, etc.) are responsible for repetitive, inflammatory or infectious outbreaks, which increase the symptoms. These outbreaks evolve either according to thesycotic reaction mode , or according to the psoric reaction mode .

Homeopathic treatment will therefore include symptomatic drugs as well as field drugs (drugs of sycotic and psoric reaction modes).
