The Thuja Tree or tree of life is best found in dwarf form however the more viable Thuja Occidentalis is derived from a tree that can grow over 200 feet tall… a giant of a tree, capable of leaving a profound effect on the not-so-mighty Nasal Polyp? One of its profound effects can be linked to American Indians who used the trees foliage which is rich in vitamin C to treat scurvy. Who would have thought, the tree of life is a humble conifer…
In treating Nasal Polyps, Thuja has been found to be characterized with treating anything produced in excess or overproduced such as excessive and unnecessary fluid building up in the nasal polyps.
It has also been found to assist in treating thick, green and offensive discharge together with nasal bleeding, a loss of smell, ulceration and pain/pressure in the nose.
Thuja is also ideal in treating excessive overgrowth of tissue.

I have also heard the Thuja tree being referred to as the tree of death, so it is both the tree of life and death (a full-circle tree) and is often planted in graveyards as it is associated with immortality. I personal like to call this tree the tree of life and when referring to its effect on Nasal Polyps, the tree that brings death to these persistent growths.
