Hello madam

,

As you have previous history of nasal polyps which is not treated well may interfering your breathing difficulty, smell perception, and stuffy nose.

Though, your kapalabathi and anulomaviloma pranayama is helpful, you need some medication from ayurvedic point of view.

If you have allergies, that should be treated accordingly. With the help of alternative therapies and complimentary medicines and your regular pranayama, you can avoid surgery.

However, you have to follow strict diet and avoid cold related foods, and allergic foods such as brinjal, fried food items etc.

Panchakarma: Nasayakarma with Anuthailam is indicated for treating nasal polyps.

Though breathing exercises like pranayama, you can follow ayurvedic medicines.
