Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Nasal polyps are a benign growth originating from the mucous layer that grows in the nose. These polyps are thought to arise due to recurrent inflammation that appears chronically in the nasal cavity, for example as occurs in people with allergies, asthma, or cystic fibrosis. Not infrequently, polyps can also block the way out of the sinus cavity leading to the nasal cavity, causing the sufferer to experience sinusitis. Not only runny nose and nasal congestion, sufferers of nasal polyps and sinusitis often also experience difficulty breathing, sneezing, olfactory disorders, pain around the face and head, recurrent nosebleeds, and many other complaints that interfere with activity.
Handling of nasal polyps and sinusitis can be done with a variety of approaches, ranging from administering drugs, lifestyle modification, avoiding allergen triggers, to surgery. The selection of the best type of treatment should be discussed directly with the doctor who examined you.
Gurah is part of an alternative therapy carried out by dripping liquid from the Clerodendrum serratum plant into the nasal cavity. This action is done to help remove mucus from the nasal cavity and also the mouth. In this way, symptoms of inflammation in the airways, including polyps and sinusitis, are also expected to improve.
Several studies have examined the benefits of gurah in the management of polyps and sinusitis. But until now, the conclusions of the various studies are still being debated. Although considered to be able to minimize complaints that arise, gurah is considered not to cure polyps and sinusitis completely, so that complaints can continue to recur later on. In sensitive people, gurah can also cause dangerous side effects, such as exacerbating inflammation of the airways, otitis media, tonsillitis, and so on. Therefore, we are not authorized to recommend or absolutely forbid your mother to undergo such therapy. But you should take your mother first to consult directly with a doctor or ENT specialist to find the best treatment method according to her condition.
For now, so that your mother's complaints improve, besides checking your mother to the doctor, you can first teach her to do the following trick:
Avoid excessive exposure to cold, windy air, smoke, and pollution Always use a nose mask and oral cavity when working in a dirty environment Use a humidifier to increase the humidity of the air in the environment where you live Breathe warm water vapor so that congestion in the nasal cavity is reduced No rubbing the nose excessive Do not carelessly take drugs without a doctor's prescription Perform nasal irrigation using salt water Drink water and eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C more Don't smoke Hopefully it helps yes ..
