Apple Cider Vinegar Cure for Hemorrhoids
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Cloth or Paper
- Sitz Bath
Soak cotton or toilet paper in apple cider vinegar (ACV) and apply it to the hemorrhoid, leaving it there for as long as practicable. The pain and itch should be relieved almost on contact, and after a few applications the inflammation should go away. You can also add half a cup of ACV to a sitz bath.
[YEA] 02/02/2008: D. Blickman from San Diego, California: "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for the incredibly simple apple cider vinegar for hemmeroids.
I could barely bring myself to try it for fear of extreme pain on a huge (and I do mean huge) long hemmeroid.
Trying Prep H and others for small hemmeroids I thought it would work...not this time. The pain was all the way up in my spine and there was some bleeding. I was hoping it would break and be done with it, but no such luck.
I finally got up the nerve to try the vinegar. First I put it on some scratches that I got from cutting trees in my yard. It didn't burn. I tried putting it on my face a few hours after shaving....still no pain. I said to myself, what the heck...the worst thing I will have to do is go into the shower and get it off quickly.
I took some of the advice and put petroleum jelly on both sides of the hemmeroid. Then with a piece of cotton I soaked it in the ACV. Held my breath and then I put it on. NO PAIN whatsoever!!!!! Just cooling type of feeling.
Within a few minutes, I noticed the pain totally disappear. I was able to work on my house for the past two hours with no problem.
It is still swollen, but not to have the horrible, horrible pain I feel like a new person.
I will continue to use it for the next day or even week. If it all shrinks down and there are no side or after effects, you will not hear from me again.
If anything occurs that is out of the ordinary I promise to help others as you have helped me and let you know everything.
By the way, there is no bleeding either.
God bless you all and for this site. I thought I was going to have to get pain killers or go to the hospital. Whew! Thanks so much again. I am so happy."
[YEA] 07/04/2007: Shane from Las Vegas, NV: "I've tried everything and couldn't believe how quickly the pain and discomfort was relieved after applying full strength apple cider vinegar! I was a little hesitant because I was afraid it would burn, but it didn't at all and the discomfort was gone immediately."
[YEA] 05/12/2007: Dawn from Lebanon, INDIANA: "I have been suffering from partial bowel obstruction from adhesions due to a liposuction that went bad back in the 90's. I have suffered from severe pain, nausea and hemerroids due to the inability to fully cleanse myself out because of the blockage. This has been on going for the past 5 years. I would have an "episode" at least once a week, sometimes 2 and 3 times a week. The pain was unbearable and would literally take my breath away. Since I started taking one shot of ACV daily I have yet to have an "episode". I now have the best movements in years! I am completely amazed! Also, I suffer or should I say used to suffer from arthritis in my hips. I have absolutely no pain at all now and I know it is from the ACV because I haven't done anything else to remedy. I wish someone would have told me about this a long time ago. It is the simpliest thing in the world to do and it is all natural! God Bless Apple Cider Vinegar! If you haven't tried it, YOU SHOULD! Also, my complexion is glowing!"Replies
06/27/2008: Carol from Clairmont, AB, Canada replies: "I wish to know if you were drinking the acv, Everyone else seems to be applying it to the infected areas."
06/28/2008: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hi Carol from Clairmont, ACVinegar is safe and works both internal & external application. My answer would definitely be: If you have one impetigo lesion (sore) use only on that one lesion; however, if it's accompanied by a sore throat, I would still use it externally on the one lesion, but I would also be drinking it for the sore throat."
07/10/2010: Dezi from San Jose, Ca replies: "As an alternative to ACV, I have always used witch hazel distillate water. It's very gentle, and you can't use too much of it. I actually use witch hazel as a toner on my face! Put a portion of witch hazel in the refrigerator. Soak a cotton ball or pad with the cold witch hazel and apply to the hemorrhoids. It shrinks them immediately. I'm a holistic health educator, and so I'm always looking for great remedies. This one is so simple, gentle, effective. Beware: witch hazels in the drug store may have alcohol in them. Be sure to buy one that does NOT contain alcohol. Witch hazel distillate water is best."
[YEA] 05/03/2007: Missy from Fredericton, Canada: "Apple cider vinegar has pretty much cured my hemorrhoids! I started last Thurs and it is now Wed and they are almost gone. The itching and burning has subsided and they just aren't there anymore! This remedy will burn like crazy the first few days, but stick with it and you will have amazing results. I have tried everything and have been suffering for the last 4 months with severe pain and itching. I am so happy I found this site and this suggestion because I was spending lots of $$ on anything and everything that claimed it could cure or help hemorrhoids. The apple cider vinegar was 99 cents...and really worked!!!"
[YEA] 09/22/2006: Joan from TX: "The Apple Cider Vinegar worked for me. After having my baby, I could barely sit! I put all-natural ACV on a cotton ball and applied it 2-3 times a day and, although it burned, it shrunk the tissues and made life bearable in 2 days. I will continue to use it until they are almost gone. Thanks to all who offered this advice - ACV really works! I also used Vicks Vapo-Rub for pain after applying the ACV. The combo of the 2 worked well. Good luck!"
[YEA] 08/22/2006: Mark from Charlotte: "I would not say that the acv has cured my hemorrhoids but has greatly diminished my discomfort. *** I do have a question though. Does ACV in pill format deliver the same health benefit as ACV in the Liquid unpasteruized format. Thx"Replies
03/25/2010: Tinkerbell773 from Austin, Texas, Us replies: "I would not trust any suppliments since they are not inspected by the FDA and you never know what you are buying. A study showed that over 80% of supplements have very little or NONE of what it claimed to have! At least when you take it straight from the bottle you KNOW exzactly how much you are getting and what you are getting."
[NAY] 06/14/2006: Linda from Erlanger KY: "After reading several statements on your website regarding ACV & hemorrhoids, I tried it. After all, I drink the stuff and I truly believe in it's healing properties. However, I applied the ACV using a q-tip to the area where I had the hemorrhoids and I developed a very painful rash on the inner part of my buttocks, both sides! I wouldn't recommend it for hemorrhoid treatment, but it is good stuff otherwise!"
[YEA] 05/04/2006: Sandra from Birmingham, Alabama: "As a secretary I sit all day. Today my hemorrhoids started acting up. They weren't really enlarged. Just stinging and itching. Came to this site to see what I could find and it suggested ACV. I have a bottle of ACV, honey, and water on my desk that I drink throughout the day. I took it to the restroom, soaked a napkin, and applied it to the sore area holding it there for a minute. The relief was instant. It felt so good I wished I could just leave it on it. Now that I'm back at my desk, there is still no burning or itching."
[YEA] 04/11/2006: Kimberly from Bowling Green, Kentucky: "I can't believe it, I had never suffered with a bad case of hemorrhoids before (I had them after my children were born but they quickly went away) and of course they came at a time when we have no medical insurance. I have suffered with a bad case for over a month now and I was finally desperate for some relief. I found your web site and although I was skeptical I was willing to try just about anything for the pain. I dabbed the area with apple cider vinegar and the pain and itch have already subsided immensely. Thank You Thank You Thank You!"Replies
[YEA] 02/11/2010: Leeandmel from Loyall, Ky replies: "I couldn't believe it. My wife was in tears today over her hemorrhoid. The last time hers flared up she had to go the ER and they cut it. Well I read the your comments on the ACV, and WOW, and I mean WOW it really works. There was an immediate relief, and the size went down. This is amazing, Thanks for the info..."
[YEA] Judy from Seattle, WA: "I have had itching hemorrhoids on two separate occasions (years in between). Each time, I put some ACV on a cotton ball and dabbed the affected area. Boy, did it burn. But the itching went away and never came back. Awesome!"Replies
06/24/2009: Hemorroid Cure from Toronto, Ontario replies: "Foods to avoid if you want to cure your hemorroids. No Pepper of any kind. No walnuts. No chocolate. No Meats, fish, chicken. No eggs. I believe that hemoroids might be some kind of parrasite that lives in your boby and enjoys eating those kinds of foods. I don't think much research has been done on it...I mean common, would you volunteer to push on the toilet to see if that is how you get hemorroids? Or would you volunteer to sit on cold cement. The truth is that these experiments have never been done and therefore we can conclude that those reasons are just theories."
[YEA] Anonymous : "vinegar soothes the itching and burning of hemorrhoids. Just take a cotton ball and dab the affected area with full strength apple cider vinegar! Caution: some people find the full strength solution stings. If this happens to you, just dilute the vinegar half and half with water."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe
[YEA] 08/16/2007: K from SF, CA: "I have never suffered from bad hemorrohids. I took a flight to east coast and sat on my ass for 12 hours and then stuffed myself with Pizza. and oh boy next day I had to strain during BM and I started getting pain. It went away after 2-3 days without doing anything and came back after 10 days and it was painful. I could not sit and itching was unbearable. I applied some ACV but did not help. OTC itch cream did not help either so I applied some aloe vera and itching went away in few hours and it felt great. Then I started applying ACV on my hemorrhoids 3-4 times a day and it shrunk and doesn't hurt anymore after 2 days.
I see that one person has said that ACV gave him bad rashes. Same thing happened to me too. It gave me rashes too. So if you butt skin is sensitive then just be careful while you apply and only apply to your roids and apply some vit E oil or aloe vera on rest of the butt area. Thats what I have been doing.
Also drink plenty of water and fiber fiber fiber. Because if you strain again due to hard stool you are going to get your hemorrhoids back again. So DO NOT strain during your BM. Drinking ACV definitely helps. I also take 1-2 tablespoon of psyllium husk at night to soften the stool.
I also used wipes (wet in witch hazel) you get in walgreens. 5.99$ for pack of 100. Don't use toilette paper it will irritate your hemorrhoids.
Another thing I learned is doing KEGEL exercise (specially for women). I did it for 2 days and my hemorrhoids went inside. It helps you to tone your anal muscle and will help to stop hemorrhoids in future.
Basically whenever you urinate, try to stop the flow, hold it for upto 10 sec and release it and repeat it. Make sure that you're squeezing and lifting without pulling in your tummy, squeezing your legs together, tightening your buttocks, or holding your breath. In other words, only your pelvic floor muscles should be working.
google kegel and you should find more about it."Replies
04/01/2009: A from Vancouver, Canada replies: "It's not a good idea to hold a kegel (engaged pelvic floor) while urinating. It might help the first time to find the muscles but shouldn't be practiced in that way after the first time. Best to do them while not on the toilet as it could lead to a urinary tract infection. I do find it very helpful, for hemmorhoids and for toning the perineum for childbirth and recover post-partum."
04/02/2009: Jamie from Lake Worth, Fl replies: "I just wanted to concur that keigel while urinating is a no no. While my primary encourages keigels for women, she warned me not to while voiding my bladder or in need of doing so. The reason being the urge to urinate is signaled by the brain, by squeezing the muscles you stop the flow. Somehow it screws things up. Previously it was thought a good time to do keigles was while passing urine.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Chinese Herbs
[YEA] 03/10/2011: Carlee from Los Angeles, California Usa: "Hello everyone I am very thankful with earth clinic, for finding a cure to my bleeding Hemorroids, I read ACV for this, and Fargelin natural chinese medicine, I gave it a try and it did work. So if anybody is suffering from this give it a try it will work."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Vitamin B6
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 05/05/2008: Mamon from Manila, Philippines: "I'm only 30 years old male, and I love riding motorcyles and been sitting at the office for the most of the time, then all of a sudden, when I do my usual dump, it turned into a bleeder, so searched cure using google, found this site, tried ACV, vicks, and vit. B6 right now. Am still using vit. B6 there are some changes... I'm trying to take B6 everyday with 200mg I'm planning to do it like for a month, also applying vicks and ACV everyday, hope it will disappear and never have to go surgery...thanks..."Replies
05/07/2008: Taylor from Mon, Texas replies: "Try taking rutin, or any bioflavanoids. it's worked for me. but you have to take it everyday without fail."
[YEA] 03/30/2009: David from Houston, TX replies: "A friend recommended a B-Complex supplement as a Dr had recommended to him. They weren't sure which 'B' was working it's magic. Two days into some relief I started the EC ACV cocktail (2 tsp in 8 oz water). A day later...NO PILES!"
