anosmia loss of taste and ageusia smell?


can anybody throw any light on the subject,I have been told nasal polyps are causing this ,what alternative or complimentary therapies can help
----------

Numerous cases are recorded of successful use of Garlic internally (for nasal polyps), and by inserting Garlic powder, oil, or a sliver of fresh corm into the nostril.

Powdered Blood root or Thuja can be used as a snuff twice daily. Other effective agents are powdered Bayberry, Black Walnut (may stain skin brown), Myrrh, Goldenseal (may stain yellow). Tincture of Thuja, 1-3 drops daily, assists.  (+ info)

I have private healthcare and would like to see an E.N.T. specialist that has knowledge of these conditions (sense of smell and taste loss) in London
