Adenoid Nasal Polyp Homeopathic treatment

Are you distressed from recurrent blockage of nose with or without discharge, difficulty breathing, and a weakened sense of smell? Most people would blame this on allergies or a chronic sinus infection. But in some cases, this may be due to Nasal Polyps. Nasal Polyps are non-cancerous, soft overgrowths that develop within the nose or sinuses. They appear like grapes and can develop single or in clusters. Nasal Polyps are resultant of an allergy that weakens the wall of the nasal mucous membrane causing ballooning of this wall followed by filling of the sac with a liquid. Nasal Polyps may become bulky enough to entirely occlude the nasal passages, blocking the pathways where the sinuses drain into the nose.
They are a mass of tissue, located in the passage that connects the back of the nasal cavaty to the throat. Adenoids - which are also called nasopharyngeal tonsils but are separate from the tonsils in the throat. Although tonsils are visible when the mouth is wide open, adenoids need a small mirror and a special scope.The main function of adenoids is to produce the defence cells and fight infections like bacteria and viruses that one breathes in or swallows. By making antibodies, they help the young child's body fight respiratory tract infections.

Children are born with adenoids which are quite small. Adenoids get less vital as the child grows older and the body builds other mechanisms to fight germs. It is during the growth phase that adenoids can potentially cause problems. Both the adenoids and tonsils get enlarged when they get infected with bacteria. Mostly they return back to their original size once the infection is over; however, in some cases they tend to remain enlarged when infections are frequent or chronic.

Causes of nasal polyp

Is it true that Enlarged Adenoids cause behavior problems :-

The way in which the Adenoids are situated, when enlarged can obstruct and block the nasal passage and can interfere with sleep. Hence children who do not get enough sleep can exhibit behavior problems because they are tired. Common questions that doctors might ask during the evaluation of a child with possible enlarged adenoids are how is the Kid doing at school? Is he/she always tired? Is the Kid suffering from behavioral or listening problems? Its worth understanding that enlarged adenoids do not cause ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) or other similar conditions. Though, the behavioral symptoms may mimic ADHD, or even worsen the symptoms of an ADHD child.Adenoid face or facies When the adenoids are enlarged, they can cause nasal obstruction and chronic mouth breathing. This mouth breathing can cause permanent changes in the facial shape - like elongation of the face and an open-mouthed, slack-jaw appearance.This is called as "adenoid face or facies".


  • Is there a way to confirm that the adenoids are enlarged ?

As the Adenoids are situated at the root of the nose, it’s practically impossible to see them by direct physical examination. So apart from the symptom history, X-Ray is the best way to access the growth of an Enlarged Adenoid. The X-ray would reveal, whether the Adenoids are enlarged or not, and most importantly to what extent are they blocking the nasal passage.

  • Is there a relationship between large adenoids and ear infections ?

Whether there is any relationship between enlarged adenoids and recurrent ear infections is debatable question. It’s a known fact now that chronic nasal blockage can contribute to increased rates of ear infections and persistence of fluid in the middle ear area, but there are no corroborated studies to support the removal of adenoids in all children with recurrent ear infections. Collection of Ear wax can cause increased ear pressure leading to ear pain or ear aches, leading to a suspicion of ear infection.

  • Adenoids in Children... What Are They, Anyways ?

Adenoids - which are also called nasopharyngeal tonsils but are separate from the tonsils in the throat. Tonsils are visible when the mouth is wide open; adenoids need a small mirror and a special scope for viewing them

The main function of adenoids is to produce the antibodies and fight infections like bacteria and viruses that one breathes in or swallows. By making antibodies, they help the young child's body fight respiratory tract infections

Children are born with adenoids which are quite small. Adenoids become less useful as the child grows older because the body builds other mechanisms to fight germs. It is during the growth phase that adenoids can potentially cause problems. Most of the time they return back to their original size once the infection is over; however during chronic or frequent infections they tend to remain enlarged for long period of time blocking the nasal passage and causing distress to the kidsSwollen or enlarged adenoids are common in children. Causes include

Recurrent and chronic infections with viruses or bacteria
