Globus Pharyngis Treatment With Herbal Remedies


Globus Pharyngis is a non-painful sensation of a lump or a foreign body in the throat. It is a clinical condition that is long-lasting, difficult to treat and there is a high chance of recurrence. Nasolaryngoscopy is done to diagnose the patient. It is noted that Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is considered as the major cause of Globus Pharyngis. The symptoms frequently improve with eating and are generally unaccompanied by dysphagia. The condition is equally prevalent in men and women. Empirical Therapy with a high dose of proton pump inhibitors is reasonable for patients with Globus Pharyngis.

Globus Pharyngis


Globus Pharyngis is a painful sensation of a lump in the throat. Patients usually complain the lump is non-painful but often annoying. Hippocrates records the first known case of Globus sensation around 2500 years ago. In this condition, there is pressure on thyroid cartilage due to the contraction of the strap muscle of the neck. Identification and treatment are not always easy, as there is a range of possible causes. It can also be based on stress and anxiety so only a physical examination is not sufficient. Pathogenesis of Globus Pharyngis is unclear. Visceral hypersensitivity, mood disorders, and reflux diseases can be implicated.


Potential causes for Globus Pharyngis are:-

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
  • Abnormal Esophageal Upper Sphincter Dysfunction
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Retroverted Epiglottis
  • Esophageal Motor Disorders
  • Upper Aerodigestive Malignancy
  • Rare Laryngopharyngeal Tumours
  • Hypertrophy of the base of the tongue
  • Psychological factors and stress
  • Tonsillitis and chronic sinusitis


Certain symptoms and characteristics suggest Globus Pharyngis:-

  • Neck or throat pain
  • Weight loss
  • Abrupt appearance
  • Dysphagia
  • Regurgitation of food
  • Muscle weakness
  • Neck lump
  • Catarrh/ mucus that is unable to clear


Patients with typical Globus Symptoms usually require no further investigations. However, patients with alarming signs such as odynophagia, dysphagia, throat pain, and weight loss should undergo more extensive evaluations.

Barium Swallow

Barium Swallow studies have been reported to find benign lesions. This test seems to have limited diagnostic value in an investigation of patients with Globus Pharyngis.


Videofluoroscopy may help to identify pharyngeal dysfunction in a substantial proportion of Globus patients.

Flexible Esophagogastroscopy

Excellent views of the pyriform fossa and the postcricoid area can be achieved by insufflating air by flexible esophagogastroscopy.


Ayurveda is an ancient science, treating people for a very long time. There is no direct correlation available in ancient texts for Globus Pharyngis. It is treated on the basis of symptoms. In Ayurveda, it is considered due to the aggravation of vata dosha. When vata is aggravated it causes exhaustion of the nervous system and impairs the normal functioning of muscles. The aggravation of vata dosha leads to dryness in the throat and the sensation of something present in the throat.


There are various Ayurvedic treatments for Globus Pharyngis. Some of them include:-

  • Providing a warm water pack over the throat region using a towel.
  • Consumption of various ayurvedic herbs like:-
  • Basil:- Boil basil leaves in water for 10 minutes then drink that water.
  • Cinnamon:- Make a tea of cinnamon and drink it twice daily.
  • Turmeric:- Turmeric is very famous for its anti-inflammatory and anti bacterial properties. Boil one tsp of turmeric in water and use that water for gargling.
  • Cloves:- Chew a few pieces of cloves as it tends to reduce soreness of the throat.
