Herbal Nose Drops for Congestion and Polyps


my doc says a big polyp in right sinus is affecting eustation tube and causing ear pain which is my main symptom. I have tried everything from silver , apple cider vinegar, food grade peroxide, saline, Afrin, nedimed nasal rinses and rinse combos with above. Not much help. I was able to snif your formula deep and I felt it in the ear and throat and have had relief for a few hours now. I was able to bring some deep mucous out. I’m very pleased with this start. Best, Eb


Hi Alan, When I rang you you will recall that often you had to ask me to repeat what I was saying because I spoke with such a nasal intonation that it was hard to understand. I phoned you again today a month after I’d started both the Nasal Polyps Drops and Nose Congestion Drops. I didn’t have to repeat meyself once! I’m much clearer and you heard it. The nasal congestion has improved massively. This is because the polyps in my nose have almost gone. I got a lot of stringy stuff from my nose after using your polyps drops for a few days. The polyps have sort of melted away. I can still see some but they have almost gone. I didn’t want surgery to remove them and my surgeon supported my decision to use your drops. I’m breathing almost normally again. The decongestion drops have helped to clear the build up of catarrh in the siuses and reduce the inflammation and itchiness i had in the nose. The high pollen in the summer always affects me but its impact this year has been a lot less. I’m most grateful for your treatments. I will of course continue with both your medicinal drops.
Thank you. Philip. Sussex


Nasal polyps are small growths of inflamed mucus membrane usually occurring in the top of the nose. Apart from causing blockage in the nose, they decrease the sense of taste and smell and make it harder to breathe.

As the small grape-sized polyps make the nasal cavity narrower, mucus forms behind the polyp and cannot drain properly. This may become infected and leads the sufferer to having to breathe through the mouth. This can lead to respiratory complaints such as asthma, hay fever and chronic sinus conditions occurring alongside the polyps.

The cause of nasal polyps

Respiratory allergies are commonly thought to be the cause of polyps, though some research suggests that a chronic viral or bacterial infection of the sinuses may be the cause. One study reported a connection with house dust mite and house dust allergies, particularly in patients under 40.(1) Aspirin can also cause polyps suggested another.(2) However, most evidence pointed to allergy as one study in Thailand confirms (3). 60% of the patients registered positive to the skin prick test, indicating they were allergic. The research concluded that in those patients suffering from allergy they were six times more likely to suffer from polyps. A further study (4) reported that 57% of children who were allergic were suffering from polyps.

Conventional Treatment of Polyps

Conventional treatment aims to shrink the polyps using steroids, before surgery is considered. Often doctors will attempt a “medical polypectomy”, by giving a one to two week course of oral steroids, followed by three or four weeks of antibiotics, and then long-term use of intranasal steroids. Surgery requires a nasal endoscopy and often has to be performed due to inadequate response from the cocktail of medicines. Doctors try to further minimise the chance of the polyps returning by prescribing nasal steroids indefinitely after surgery (5). Long term use of steroids are detrimental to the person’s overall health and can have side effects including osteoporosis, growth retardation in children and thinning skin.

Herbactive Method

If there is a food allergy, the person’s diet must be improved (see AllergyLess). If there is an allergy to dust and dust mite the person must go on an elimination (detoxification) programme to clear the system and to improve the immune protection system (see Total Detox). If the person is working in a dusty environment nasal clearing on a daily basis is important using dilute saline water or herbal infusion and applying the Herbactive Nose Drops.
To treat the polyps the herbal nose drops must be applied 2-4 times daily in the manner described.
These herbal nose drops are for health problems concerning the nasal passages and sinuses.
To use these drops do not apply when standing upright. To apply correctly, bend over forwards, or kneel and bend over forwards, or lie on your back.
They can be used for congestion problems and polyps.
If you have problems with breathing through your nose get our internal herbal medicine as well, called CatarrhLess Tonic

The herbs include blood root, bayberry bark, black walnut, myrrh, garlic, and madder root. The action of these herbs is to inhibit the growth by working into the polyp’s blood supply and cellular structure. The formula is traditional which means it has had traditional effectiveness in treatment, but there are no citations of its effectiveness known to me. This mixture is applied into the nostrils using a dropper (the tincture mixture may require to be diluted before application, depending on your sensitivity). The importance of such treatment is its regularity of application viz. at least 4 times daily.
I also recommend the ABC Daily Herbal NutriPowder for complete nutritional back-up to your system, see below.

Each Tonic is a mixture of organic whole medicinal herbal tinctures. Please note that every patient is different with differing demands and responses to herbal medicine. If you have any other questions about this or our other specific herbal tonics please contact me. I will do all I can to help you.
Prices are as follows:

I only ordered your nasal polyp drops a fortnight ago and already there has been a big improvement to my breathing. I’m putting 2 drops in four times a day, and whereas my nose had alsways been very dry, now the nose is releasing lots of stuff so I’m able now to blow my nose. I’m very impressed with these drops, but they are very strong but that’s probably why they’re so effective. Thank you for all your help.

hi, my name is clarence
ive been in deep despair for 12 years with nasal polyps unable to breathe, properly or smell and taste anything, endlessly searching the internet for solutions, i decided to go hospital to have them removed only for it to come back with a vengeance after a month, ive tried everything from homeopathic medicine called sinuswars, to deep breathing exersises, to calloidal silver, to apple cider vinegar, to tumeric, and fresh fruits and even becoming a vegetarian, but to no avail, a friend told me of nasal polyp drops from herbactive which i tried and found some success. but after talking to Alan Hopking i was advised i needed a detox to detoxify my whole system and to have it replenished, i followed the detox plan with the nasal drops for a month as advised.
After my first week, it didnt have much of an impact, by the second week one of my nostrils was clearing up, by the third week both nostrils was clearing up and i was able to breathe through my nostrils all day rather than my mouth, by the fourth week, i smelt someones cigarrette next to me, i went jogging and started to smell grass, i showered and smelt my soap, which i havent been able to do for 12 years, i think herbactive should change its name to miracle-active.
i am truly amazed and so so happy with the results, its changed my life, as a recruitment consultant i am able to talk on the phone without repeating myself, and being constantly asked if i have the flu, and my desk is now clear of wet tissues!


“I have been using your blood root nose drops for my nasal polyps for just a few weeks and I find I can already breathe a little better. Thank you. “
Phillipe S


I use the nasal polyp drops more than the few drops 4x a day, I can handle the drops and rather like them. Right now it’s the only thing that gives me relief.
Thank you. EJ. New York.


Dear Mr Hopking, we are making progress with our respective polyps [using your nasal polyps drops containing Blood Root], Chris can breathe through both nostrils now. Mucus is mostly clear or white now, occasionally he gets a bit of ‘rubber’ out. One of my nostrils is stil partially blocked but the swelling where the polyp sits has gone down a lot already.

More about Polyps

Nasal polyps are fleshy swellings that can develop in the lining of the nose and in the sinuses. They are non-cancerous. Polyps vary in size; they may be white, yellowish brown or pink and are shaped like little teardrops or like little grapes. Polyps usually grow in both nostrils either on their own or in clusters. Polyps in just one side of the nose are not that common. Large polyps can cause breathing problems. They can also affect the patient’s sense of smell. They can grow to the point that they may block the sinuses and cause regular infections and other problems, see below.
The National Health Service (NHS), UK, reports that nasal polyps affect up to 20 people per 1,000, of these the majority are men over the age of 40. People who have asthma, long-term sinus infections and allergies are more likely to develop nasal polyps. Children with cystic fibrosis are known to develop nasal polyps.

Nasal irritation and itchiness; persistent stuffy or blocked nose in one or both nostrils making it hard to breathe through the nose; sleeping problems; wet or dripping nose; postnasal drip – mucus continually running down the back of the throat; reduced smell; reduced taste; aches or pains in the face is possible; headaches; snoring; itchiness of nose and eyes. All these symptoms get worse the larger the polyps become.

Some research indicates that if your parents have/had nasal polyps your risk of developing them yourself is greater, compared to other people.

What are the causes of nasal polyps? It is thought that irritations, allergies, sprays can cause polyps, also bacterial or viral or fungal infection. However the pathogenesis of nasal polyps is unknown – the step by step development of a disease and the chain of events leading to that disease. Experts say that nasal polyps are thought to be caused by allergy and also cystic fibrosis (less commonly). A significant number of cases are linked to non-allergic asthma. In some cases no respiratory or allergic trigger is found.
Nasal polyps have no relationship with colonic or uterine polyps.
Nasal polyps are the result of swelling (inflammation) in the nose or sinuses – they are not a disease. Experts say that inflammation causes an accumulation of fluid in the cells of the nose and sinuses. Eventually, gravity pulls these heavy cells down, resulting in polyps. Scientists believe possible triggers are bacterial or viral infection, an allergy, or an immune response to a fungus.
Nasal polyps appear most frequently near the openings to the sinuses (in the nasal passage); however, they can develop anywhere throughout the nasal passages or sinuses.

Diagnosing nasal polyps
A doctor will generally be able to make a diagnosis after receiving answers to some questions regarding symptoms, carrying out a general examination, and more specifically, examining the patient’s nose. Often polyps are visible with the aid of a lighted instrument.

Use herbal washes to the nose which include bloodroot, Oregon grape root, myrrh, eyebright and other antibacterial herbs, antifungal herbs, antiviral herbs.


Latest News: the cause of nasal polyps

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have identified the source of the inflammatory cytokine Interleukin-25 (IL-25), an immune molecule that recruits a subset of inflammatory cells. Common respiratory disorders like chronic rhinosinusitis and asthma have recently been linked to elevated levels of IL-25, but the cellular source of it in the respiratory system was unknown until now. The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology published the findings today (24 May 2018).
The source of IL-25 is the solitary chemosensory cell (SCC), a highly-specialized type of cell similar to cells found in taste buds as well as cells in the gut. In non-inflamed tissue, SCCs make up about one percent of human cells lining the sinuses. However, when Penn researchers looked at human nasal polyps, the number of SCCs lining the polyp tissue was massively increased. Furthermore, treating these cells in a petri dish with the inflammatory molecule Interleukin-13 (IL-13), which has been implicated in driving nasal polyp formation and asthma, stimulated expansion of the SCCs and increased production of IL-25.
“The more of these cells are present, the more likely the body will mount an inappropriate, exaggerated immune response due to elevated levels of IL-25. The body ends up in a vicious cycle, and so it never goes back to its baseline,” said the study’s senior author Noam A. Cohen, MD, PhD, a professor of Otorhinolaryngology and director of Rhinology Research at Penn.
Surprisingly, the researchers also found that IL-25 is secreted into mucus, not tissue, meaning an extra step is apparently required before the cells can go to work. The IL-25 has to get from the mucus into the tissue to have its effect, otherwise the IL-25 is simply sneezed out or blown out in a tissue. However, if the linings of the sinuses have been breached by infection or irritants in the environment, then the IL-25 can access the underlying tissue, resulting in recruitment of additional immune cells and local inflammation.
“We can measure levels of IL-25 in the mucus, so it’s possible this can be an indicator of who will develop conditions like polyps or asthma,” said the study’s lead author Michael Kohanski, MD, PhD, a Rhinology Fellow at Penn. “Also, if we can bind up IL-25 before it reaches the tissue, we may be able to prevent the inflammation altogether.”
Cohen pointed out that the process of SCC’s secreting IL-25 is normal, and thus is most likely not something that should be completely prevented.
“Rather, we want to control the excessive concentrations found in polyps in a targeted way, perhaps with a nasal spray or drops,” Cohen said. Cohen added that this approach may reduce clinical reliance on steroids. He and his team say they are planning further research to examine this approach.
