Acupuncture, as well as other remedies such as Ayurveda and certain herbal treatments, are commonly believed to help with endometrial polyps. However, there is no scientific evidence of this and patients can turn to these treatments voluntarily.

It is often said that certain foods, such as ginger, cinnamon, or mustard seeds can make polyps disappear on their own. As a method for preventing their appearance, a balanced diet, rich in antioxidants, along with a healthy lifestyle can be beneficial, but there is no scientific evidence to date either.

The safest methods to deal with uterine polyps are the ones described through this article. Keeping in mind that polyps can turn into cancer, we do not recommend that you take unnecessary risks.
