1) A teaspoon of castor oil mixed consumed everyday will help in reducing the polyp size. Castor oil can be taken by itself or mixed in soups or juices to make it more agreeable to one’s palate. The excess body heat brought about by consumption of castor oil will expel moisture from the polyps and reduce them to a smaller size. Castor oil is also used to help the body in bringing down inflammations. Also, castor oil will boost the individual’s immune system, enabling their body to fight against viral and bacterial infections that can set in due to these abnormal growths in their sinuses.
Endoscopic sinus surgery with removal of polyps is often very effective for most people with rapid symptom relief. Endoscopic sinus surgery is minimally-invasive and is done entirely through the nostril with the help of a camera. Surgery should be considered for those with complete nasal obstruction, uncontrolled runny nose, nasal deformity caused by polyps or continued symptoms despite medical management.  Surgery serves to remove the polyps as well as the surrounding inflamed mucosa, open obstructed nasal passages, and clear the sinuses. This not only removes the obstruction caused by the polyps themselves, but allows medications such as saline irrigations and topical steroids to become more effective.  Surgery lasts approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour and can be done under general or local anesthesia.
