Hello, I am new to this forum. I have been suffering from nose polyps for 5 years. I have lost my sense of smell and taste. I also have sleep apnea and must sleep with a c-pap machine. I am on a quest to cure myself of this affliction that millions of people world wide suffer from. I have had some success but I am still searching for something to help my search.

Has anyone had any success dealing with nose polyps?

Thanks,
Capt. Buck

Welcome to the Forums, Captain.

The treatment that immediately comes to mind is surgery, however, a brief search of medline retrieved the following abstract concerning an investigational compound http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21958585.  Let's see if anyone else has had success with other therapies.

Thanks for the quick reply D Dye.
I am well aware that the only medical  treatment that is available is surgery. I refuse to do that. I have talked to several friends that have had that surgery and they all regret allowing surgeons talking them into having it done.
The polyps always return within a year.

I have found that polyps thrive on yeast.  Unfortunately, beer swells the polyps so I have stopped drinking ale or beer. Especially ale that is very bitter. Hops may also contribute to the problem. Red wine does not seem to have the same effect, so I suspect the hops.

I owned bars and a brewpub for many years so I was contributing to my own problem by drinking my own  products for all those years. I have sold them all and work full time on my health at this time.

I have a mild sleep apnea which I am trying to treat with a mandibular traction. I went to a professional and trying several devices till a test during the night will show results. I do not trust (for having tried) devices you can buy over the internet. Of course, check your weight too which can cancel benefits.

Albedo,
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I am not able to use any medical devices to help my sleep apnea. I have a severe case, the highest number that they have seen in the sleep disorder clinic that I went to. My number is 93!. I stop breathing 93 times per hour for about 20 seconds. In 8 hours of sleep I do not breathe for over 4 hours and my O2 level goes down to 81%. I was dying in my sleep every night.

I have used a bi-pap machine every night for over 4 years. I have gotten used to it as best I can and would not try to sleep without it knowing how I would feel the next morning, barely able to function with my blood pressure off the charts.

When I first started using the machine I thought of scuba diving, I have been a diver for many years, and this seemed to help me take my mind off of being strapped to a life support machine every night.
Sometimes I would think of Star Wars as I became Darth Vader every night as my breathing was similar to his in the movie.
 
Nose polyps probably contribute to my apnea but not the cause. I have had some success using sanicle. It is a plant that is consider a discutient [ tumor dissolver].
Jethro Kloss had this to say about sanicle, ""This is one of the herbs that could be called a cure-all, because it possesses powerful cleansing and healing virtues both internally and externally."

I have started a daily program of using sanicle. I get it from a company called "Pure Herbs Ltd" as a liquid. I put about 25 drops in water and drink, and also directly into my nose to attack the polyps.
I am trying this as a test for 30 days. I will post the results.

Good luck to anyone suffering from apnea or nose polyps. I am determine to heal myself!

Capt. Buck

I too have heard that regular surgery helps this condition and I do mean the surgery is normally repeated every six, eight months. The surgery is also very expensive. Now, I heard that many years ago (cost of about 3000. ten years ago) but since then I've heard a very interesting development where some people are using silver, rinsing the nostrils with silver. Read up on it. It's remarkable stuff.

My husband successfully used the inside of banana peel (contains natural enzymes that cause banana to ripen) to remove a deep plantar wart. I wonder if it would work on polyps?

Indeed 93 is high and you got doing something. Just for the record I run at about 13 and the mandibular traction could bring it down to 5. The pap devise should solve the problem entirely.

I have tried and had some success with a product called silver shield from nature's sunshine. It comes in liquid and gel form. The gel is easier to use.
I am happy to say that I have about 50 percent of my sense of smell and taste back functioning again.

I would recommend silver shield to anyone suffering from nose polyps.

Polyp War 2012 update:
I declared war on the nose polyps invading my body 2 weeks ago and am making significant progress in shrinking the little beasts. I am 65 years old and am working on my polyp problem as if it is my job.

I have the double curse of also having sleep apnea and must use a c-pap machine to breathe every night. I now realize that the polyps contribute to my development of sleep apnea.

I am determined to get my sense of smell and taste back. The program I developed for myself has come into place after much research and soul searching.

Two weeks ago [the Blob}, the polyp in my left nostril was just about to emerge from my nose. It looked like the end of a finger starting to come out of my nose. That's when I declared "Polyp War 2012".

Here is what I have done so far. I have managed to shrink the "blob" down to about 20% of what it was 2 weeks ago. I still can't breathe through my nose, but it is easier to blow my nose now. I assume that the polyps farther up my nose and in my sinuses are also shrinking equally.

Everything blog I read and persons I talked to all said that beer and wine made the polyps more severe.
I deduced that yeast was the culprit so I decided to give up beer, ale, wine and all alcohol made with wheat, barley or rye grains, I still have tequila made from cactus!. This lead me to decide to go gluten free.

I decided to do a candita cleanse to rid my body of as much fungus as possible and start taking "probiotics" to put good, essential bacteria back into my system. I had taken a round of antibiotics after a strange infection appeared under my thumbnail 2 months ago.. My thumbnail fell off! I discovered that this was caused by an infestation of candita albicans.   
I have stopped eating sugar, salt, flour,potatoes and most all carbohydrates that turn to glucose in your system and feed the candita.
The most important weapon I have is using my old Champion juicer every day. The polyps started to recede the first day I started drinking fresh carrot juice twice a day! I read about using carrot juice while researching the use of lotus root plaster on a Chinese home remedy website. I can't stress enough the power of fresh made juice.

I also started putting tea tree oil into my nose twice a day. The first time my nose felt like a volcano going off. It got easier to do as I continued using it. I figure I can take it if it even helps one little bit in killing off the evil bastards living in my nose.
I admit these are not easy or enjoyable things to do but I am at war and I will do anything to win this war.

I have talked to my doctor and will start a nystatin program soon.

I want to be able to taste, smell and breathe normally again.
Good luck to all fellow sufferers,
Captain Buck
