Default Natural Solution to nasal polyps ?


Hi

One of my relatives has cured his nasal polyps by drinking a powder made of a plant called Job's tears.
The same plant is very common in Japan, where it is also often taken to get rid of warts.

Do anyone have a similar experience of drinking Job's tears ?

thank you

I have heard of the plant... would love to see pictures of it... If it works for getting rid of warts, I wonder if it would work for skin tags. Hmmm more reading I suppose!!!

Job's Tears must have a strong anti-viral effect. I have read a few cases where MMS gets rid of colon polyps. Maybe it will work for nasal polyps too.

just me - I cannot cut and past from herbalpedia. Maybe you can post something from it on Job's Tears?

You can buy Job's Tears (Hato Mugi) in grain form:

www.simply-natural.biz/Hato-Mugi_Prem.php



Hato Mugi is known in the West as Job's Tears and dates back to Biblical times. Commonly prepared as a small side dish, cooked with rice or other grain, or added to your favorite soups or stews. Hato Mugi is actually a Japanese grass seed erroneously translated as pearl barley. Hato Mugi has been used in Japanese Kampo</B> (traditional herbal medicine) for treating bronchitis and other respiratory diseases and ailments. This amazing grain is also traditionally used in the Orient for weight-loss and beauty. Mitoku "Yuuki" Hato mugi is the unrefined variety which is slightly brown due to its intact outer skin, unlike the regular Mitoku Hato Mugi which is white-colored as it has been polished. "Yuuki" Hato Mugi has a stronger, nutty taste.
Ingredients: Japanese Premium Hato Mugi: Job's Tears (polished). Hato Mugi (Japanese Job's Tears) is one of the world's oldest grains and has been cultivated for thousands of years in both the East and West. It was the staple of Egypt under the pharaohs, ancient Greece and Rome, the Holy Land during Biblical times and Tibet. This heirloom barley is chewy, extremely easy to digest, and nourishing. In the Far East hato mugi is traditionally eaten to dissolve excess protein and fat from animal food consumption and to clean up blemishes of the skin. Hato Mugi is often times marketed under the name Pearl Barley, but should not be confused with pearled barley, which is regular barley that has been partially milled.

Or tea form:

www.simply-natural.biz/Hato-Mugi-Tea.php



Hato Mugi Tea was traditionally used for clearing up moles, warts, and boils and for eliminating age-spots, freckles, rashes and blemishes. It is prized and excellent in harmonizing body energy and drawing out and softening excess body fat or protein. Hato Mugi melts excess animal protein and fat and helps to beautify the skin. Ingredients: Japanese 100% Hato Mugi grain


Eden Foods makes rice crackers with Job's Tears (hato mugi) in them. They're delicious though I'm sure there's not enough Job's Tears in them to do much if you're trying to treat a health problem.

Job's tears are said to strengthen the blood circulation in the body.

In Japan people often take Job's tears to get rid of polyps, but in those case they drink it as a powder, which is said to have much stronger effects than the seeds.
Under the form of powder it is also called in Japanese as yokuinin.

People also apply a powder of Job's tear on warts and do get rid of warts.

You may want to try Job's tears against skin tabs. May be it works ..

No I don't know if Job's tears work against colon polyps. They do work -in some cases- against nasal polyps.

You can always try out. It is low risk. One thing though, if you try you have more chance of success if you take the Job's tears as a powder, and not as tea.
As tea, the seeds are roasted and do not cure- As tea it is a delicious drink, but it will not cure anything in most case.

00Here it is in the grain form. You could grind it to make the flour. Then what? Put it in capsules? How would you take it?

The product is kind of famous in Japan. It is a bag of powder, you take a small spoon of powder, mixed with hot water, and drink it. This is how one of my relatives got rid of nasal polyps, after trying everything with western medicine...

May God bless you. After two weeks of chronic sinus and polyps this resolved the issue in 2 days for me. I got this from Maxim shop and put one tablespoon in hot water and took it.

Default Where can I get Job's tears Powder?

To user cvik,

Can you please provide me with the address or website to Maxim shop where you purchased Job's tears powder.

I am suffering with nasal polyps and would like to try this as I do not want to take conventional medicines such as prednisone to shrink them.

I am located in Torornto, Canada. Does anyone know where I can purchase from a reputable supplier in Canada or the U.S.?

Hi, i was wondering if it's ok to mix Job's Tears powder with either cold water or fruit juice, in order to get the same medical benefits as if you had it as a tea with hot water?

Cant say for sure but in making a hot infusion, like a tea, the medicinal compounds are extracted into the water making them accessible. This is why teas are made and often provide better results than just eating the herb.

I don't know about that, but has anyone tried Thuja Occidentalis? it is the same essential oil that is in tag away for warts and growths. I read about it and it can be piosonus that is why I am hesitant about useing it but if I knew someone had tried it and could give me the dosage they used and it worked then I would try it.
