Homeopathy Medicine for Turbinate Hypertrophy


The turbinates, or nasal conchae, are six narrow, curled shelves of bone and connective tissue covered by a mucosa that protrude into the breathing passage of the nose. Turbinate hypertrophy is a condition affecting the respiratory mucosa.


The symptoms listed below may result from turbinate hypertrophy:

  • a sense that your nose is congested or blocked;
  • Trouble breathing;
  • Headache;
  • throat after nasal mucus has been secreted;
  • Sinusitis;
  • Snoring;
  • Dry, tickly cough;
  • Dry mouth;
  • Impaired sense of smell;

  • Sneezing;
  • Nosebleeds (epistaxis);
  • metallic or nasally (rhinolalia) sounding voice
  • Hearing loss (hypacousia);

Turbinate hypertrophy can be caused by a number of risk factors, including:

  • allergy rhinitis that is seasonal or ongoing
  • Non-allergic or vasomotor rhinitis
  • a variation in the humidity or temperature
  • the use of hormone therapy or specific medications
  • Frequently recurring common cold
  • Exposure to certain chemicals
