Black Peppercorns for Hemorrhoids

Nov 12, 2016

Black peppercorns are an effective natural treatment for hemorrhoids. This simple and easy remedy for hemorrhoids is easy to implement and gives fast results.

How Do You Use Black Peppercorns for Hemorrhoids?

It is almost too simple. All you have to do is swallow 5 peppercorns morning and evening on an empty stomach. (But don't skip your dose if your stomach is not empty.) Often relief is found in less than 24 hours. We have had readers report that this remedy healed severe and even bleeding hemorrhoids.

Why Do Black Peppercorns Help Hemorrhoids?

Peppercorns are not a commonly known or used "herbal" remedy. But peppercorns are part of herbal medicine. Peppercorns have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, among a host of other properties. While peppercorns are usually used with other herbs, to make the action of other herbs more effective, they can be used as a stand alone remedy, as in the case of hemorrhoids.

Cautions

Some people will find that even 5 peppercorns at a time will cause digestive distress. If this is the case, take fewer peppercorns, take them with a small amount of food, or try another remedy.

In very large doses over a long period of time, peppercorns may cause miscarriage in women and decrease fertility in men.

Black Peppercorn - Amazing Little Gems

Hemorrhoids would not go away from stress and change in diet. I tried popular suppositories and it appeared to be worse. I added 6-8 to my morning regime and sometimes to my evening after eating. The swelling went down and after a week were gone. I also now add 1/2 tspn of ground black peppercorn to hot water throughout the day because I read that helps with inflammation.

Interestingly enough, I remembered that my grandmother gave me hot water with black pepper to relieve my severe menstrual cramps and it was the only relief I ever had.

Here is my story (It's long, so please bear with me! ). I am probably the only person who had a "self inflicted" hemorrhoid! Let me tell you why! I am one of those people who have been struggling with weight for a long long long time but not strong enough to continue with a strict diet and exercise regime for more than a week. So I bought a Chinese Herbal Laxative tea, which (according to the makers) is pretty strong. I took that few months ago for a week, and other than running to the toilets few times a day, no serious side-effect happened. Now, after 2/3 moths, I again wanted to consume that tea for another week, and again I drank that tea for 5 straight days, every day on an empty stomach. By the 5th day I went to the toilet so many times that my "...." (you know what! ) area got really strained and I developed a hemorrhoid. Now, remember, I wasn't suffering from constipation or diarrhea naturally, neither was I having any problem evacuating on my own. However, the first day was uncomfortable and I had some burning sensation. But by the third and fourth day it got so bad that I couldn't sit, stand, or walk without feeling pain. The area got really swollen and I was having all the symptoms of a hemorrhoid. I wanted to kill myself for going overboard with that laxative tea. But the damage was done, and I was frantically looking for a natural remedy. Mind you, I am one of 'those' who believe in natural remedy and avoid going to the Doctors as long as possible.

And after numerous search I found the Earth Clinic website and read all the comments of people who have had success with various natural remedies for this condition. Most of the remedies seemed appropriate for constipation (which I wasn't suffering from). I tried coconut oil in the external area for one day, and it didn't seem to work form me. I was using organic, pure virgin coconut oil but I guess that wasn't apt for my situation. So as my last resort, I bought some black peppercorn on the night of July 14,2016. I had my first dose that night. After taking the first 5/6 peppercorn, I felt significantly less pain within an hour or two. The next morning my pain was 75% gone. Even though most people suggested to take 5/6 peppercorn on empty stomach once in the morning and once at night, I found from another website that the dose can be increased much more, and one can consume 20-25 peppercorn a day. I did the same thing two days. Today is July 17,2016 (morning), and I am pleased to inform you that I absolutely no pain, no bleeding (as of this morning), almost no swollen gland. Evacuation was easy this morning, and I hope within a day or two it should be Completely alright.

Therefore, YES YES YES... it DOES work like miracle... and you guys were Godsend to me :-)! Thanks for your Honest review and comments, and this is the very first time I am writing a review about anything online because I know it is true. So anyone who is suffering from this condition, please take 5/6 black peppercorn each time and a total of 20/25 Black peppercorn every day until your situation gets completely cured.

I have an externally thrombosed hemorrhoid. It is very painful. I thought I had exhausted all my options, until I found this peppercorn remedy.

I took five peppercorns last night on an empty stomach with a full glass of water. I repeated the remedy this morning. I am no longer in pain, and the peppercorns are actually shrinking the hemorrhoid! I can't believe it! The improvement in less than 24 hours is dramatic.

This is a miracle/game changer for me. I thought I would need surgery or would be in weeks of protracted pain until my body absorbed the clot. Not so! I intend to continue using the peppercorns until I am fully healed.

I echo what other reviewers have stated here: THIS IS NOT A PRANK! IT WORKS!

Please share this remedy with others! It works!

I paid $3.35 for a bottle of Black Peppercorns.

I have had what have been called "historical" hemorrhoids (yes, by a nurse after having babies). I have bled for almost 8 years. I have been weeks away from bleeding to death this year. Last month, I was pouring blood. I was told my only option was that brutal surgery (invented in the 1920's) and because my problem was SO bad, I'd be debilitated for about 4 weeks with the real possibility of having to use a catheter for a few weeks and possible additional surgery of stenosis of the anal opening. I stumbled upon this site and WOW! I tried the peppercorns. I had nothing to lose. Within 24 hours the bleeding was about 3/4 less (they figure I was losing 1/8 of a cup every time. In about a week I actually had bowel movements without blood. I canceled the surgery. Now, three weeks later, I have more non-blood bowel movements than with (and if there is, it's like 1tsp). Pain after bowel movements is practically nill.

Last week, I also added Fragelin, a chinese herb and Collinsonia Root, a supplement, that are said to strengthen the colon wall. THANK YOU....Oh, and my husband has shared my buns with the neighbors...well, the information about them. In one family, the 40-something year old son, father and grandfather all have this problem. They used the peppercorns and they said they are also having great results.

Dear EC,

I do not have painful, external hemorrhoids. I suspect I have may have internal ones/blood clots because after vigorous massaging of my abdomen I will expel blood. I have been taking cayenne for that. Cayenne is also reported to restore peristaltic action to "dead zones". I feel I have killed some nerve cells. From holding my bowels so long over the years I also feel I have stretched my gastrointestinal tract so much it seems to be full of lesions and stool is accumulating between the tract walls. I read that the inner lining is only one cell thick and in my mind, it could stretch and tear easily. One CT revealed "free fluid" several years ago. Where there was a complete separation of the lining, stool collects as if in a "pocket" in the lower section just before the anus and causes rectal prolapse. Sometimes tampon use will help prevent the vaginal "bladder" prolapse but if not, I have to push that prolapse back in so stool can be expelled.

I know I have adhesions due to multiple surgeries and have resumed taking Serrapeptase...being only available in a capsule now, this could contribute to another problem. My question is, if taking peppercorns morning and evening with shrink hemorrhoids, would it be harmful to take peppercorns three times a day? I think the "fleshy" lining has become similar to someone losing a lot of weight and having excess skin. I took two yesterday before lunch as a trial, making attempts to help reduce the excess overlapping, fleshy lining that seems to hinder evacuation.

I would appreciate any feedback concerning this situation.

Dear Kt,

My thought is that people tend to like remedies that don't have to be dosed multiple times a day and twice a day seems to work for people. But if you want to take 2 peppercorns three times a day, that is not an excessive amount at all, if it seems to agree with you or benefit your particular situation. I think that smaller amounts of a remedy over the course of a day are often preferable anyway in many cases.

HI U KT,,,,,,,,,, could respond on most posts but on yours, I have first hand knowledge via my Tractor Driver. Up until about 10 years ago when we got into this natural stuff, she had a bowel movement every week or every two weeks. I got her on a fast colon cleanse that caused her bowels to lock up . We got in touch with a Hydro Therapist and began her colonics for about 2 weeks. That got her out of this dilemma, but did not solve her problem.

Her next colon cleanse I have written about years ago. It took about 6 months for her to clean the accumulated plaque from her intestines. Now we fight over who goes upstairs or downstair to the potty first every morning. She is a different person.

For folks who have bowel problems I recommend that they go to Holistic Horizons web site and read. Buy Dr Grey's book.

I take this at least twice a week and eat it like a yogurt: I blend one apple into a sauce, add a cup of water, then add ground flax and chia seeds and add raw honey blend them all together and let sit for a few minutes for the chia to thicken then eat. You will have no troubles with build up in bowels or colon ever again.

The measurements are 1 tsp of raw honey, 1 heaping tbls of chia and flax.

I hope this helps anyone with this issue.

Not everyone who has hemorrhoids gets them from constipation. I got mine from constant diarrhea. Apples with chia and flax? I'd never get out of the bathroom!

The apples, chia and flax was in response to the post about build up in the colon and bowel on the thread, not hemorrhoids. It is probably in the wrong place but just a reply.

It's not strange, the doctors don't learn any natural remedies, only pharmaceutical because there education is heavily influenced by the drug industry.

I registered just to reply here. Yes, the black pepper corns works for hemmorhoids. I tried this while I was in desperate pain. I took 5-6 peppercorns on an empty stomach twice a day for 2 days and now I'm not in pain. I think its gone. I'll continue for another couple days but this is amazing. I can't believe doctors don't know about this

I hurt for two months, unbearable pain from hemorrhoids. It was so bad that the back of my legs were numb, I couldn't even walk straight, couldn't sleep, and it felt like a hot poker was inside me. Went to the dr three times, was prescribed lortabs and a protofoam. NOTHING helped. Hot baths, meds, nothing. I was getting depressed and so down from this horrible, non stop pain. I read on this site about cayenne pepper, and I read on another site to take black peppercorns. Two months I have been down with this, and in two days I am BACK TO MY OLD SELF. I FEEL LIKE JUMPING AND YELLING FOR JOY!! .

The first night I was desperate and at this point would have tried anything... I read where you swallow five black peppercorns, once at night, once in the morning. I got up that night, took the peppercorns (was in a lot of pain at the time and couldnt' sleep). I also soaked a cotton ball in the ACV and put it on the outside for a few minutes. I finally fell asleep, woke up the next morning to pain, but NOTHING like it was... I took more peppercorns, and around mid day felt the urge to go, (which meant horrible pain was around the corner again). This time I used about 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper (finely ground) in a small enema bottle of warm water, and gave myself an enema. I expected there to be lots of pain with the pepper but there was none. I couldn't believe it, after I went, there was NO PAIN. I did this twice a day, for two days, and taking the peppercorns. At the same time, I am also taking 5 wheatgrass tablets a day. This was the THIRD Day and today I mowed the grass, cleaned my home, and actually felt like a human being. Mine were so severe the doctor said I needed surgery, and they were swollen so bad that they were blocking... This is a miracle. If you are hurting, please try this!!! I can't believe it works but I will never be without peppercorns or cayenne ever again.

For hemorrhoids, try the black peppercorn remedy (2 to 3 whole black peppercorns swallowed whole like pills, morning and evening on an empty stomach). Shrank mine in less than a week.

Black Peppercorns work! Just had baby #3 and was left with large, painful hemorrhoids (one the size of a grape)! Hurt to sit, stand, walk, or lie. Tried several remedies, but found peppercorn remedy buried in the thread and tried that.

Swallowed 4-5 whole black peppercorns morning and evening (sometimes on empty stomach - but if not, took them anyway). By day 5 H's were gone. Just have a little extra fold of skin now. 2 were hard and 2 were soft - worked on both kinds.

Also, used Vit E oil to soothe burning while they were still large. Better than the RX cream! Hope everyone tries this!

Were you nursing when you took the peppercorn? I've bought them but thought twice, I don't want it to adversely effect my breastmilk.

Peppercorns should not cause a problem with breastfeeding.

For your hemorrhoids, you can also try a salve, externally, that contains comfrey. If it has chickweed in it, that is a bonus!

Also, keeping yourself regular will help them to heal more quickly and not return. Add some blackstrap molasses to your diet (1 T. once or twice a day) and that may help, and will give you extra nutrients for nursing. Also make sure you drink a lot of water or herbal tea.

Have a great day and enjoy your baby! :)

Believe it or not and I didn't at first. Take 6 -10 whole black peppercorns (like you find in a pepper grinder) and take them when you wake up and before you go to sleep. Hemorrhoids will shrink and go away in a matter of days. Amazing...

It works!! I had horrible hemorrhoids and they wouldn't go away! I thought that peppercorn remedy sounded stupid, but I tried everything else and it did nothing. I started taking peppercorns yesterday. I took like 5 in the morning on an empty stomach as said to and repeated the dosage that night a few hours after I ate so my tummy would be fairly empty. By last night I already noticed a difference, and this morning they're like 80% gone!!! Yay!!!! I researched pepper till late last and found it to be an amazing food. It's a super antioxidant food, high anti inflammatory, anti pain, helps reduce Colin cancer, and much more!!!!! You gotta read about it and you wl see why it works. Who would of thought that this marvelous seasoning could be so beneficial to our bodies.

I am hooked on your site. Thanks for this wonderfull site. I read alot of remedies and user feedback on remedies for alot of health problems. I could however not find a remedy for piles.

Now here is my story: I used to work with a friend of mine who suddenly got a very bad case of piles. I actually got a huge fright when he showed them to me and a couple of other co-workers becaused I have heard of them but have never seen them. They were the type of piles that hung out,if you know what i mean. I have a nephew who had the same piles and he had them removed by having a very painfull and uncomfartable operation. Anyways, one of my co-workers who also saw this guys piles was a real joker type of guy and used to pull a lot of pranks on the lot of us. He looked at this guy and told him that he knows about a remedy that will make those piles dissapeare within days. We all thought he was joking again. What he told this guy, I will never forget in my life. I gave this remedy to 2 other people and they could not believe that it worked.

This prankster told our collegue to swallow 2 to 3 black pepper corns on empty stomach in the morning and the same amount in the evening before he goes to sleep. That simple. That is the remedy for those big piles that otherwise can only be removed by having a operation.

Low and behold, the guy who had the piles could not believe it and so couldnt the rest of us. Four days after he started this black pepper corn treatment he showed us his arse and they were gone completely. I promise you that i have seen this with my own eyes. Before and after. I do not know how it works but this is no joke. It does work. Maybe ted can give us feedback on how black pepper can cure this.

I cincerely hope that this information can help somebody to get rid of those piles instead of going for a operation.i have seen it. It does work.this is no prank.

If somebody try this please give us feedback on this matter.

Ok, I have been suffering long enough to be desperate enough to try this peppercorn remmedy. I had a baby in July of 09, and have been riddled with hemorrhoids and fissures ever since. I have had two surgeries, have tried most of the natural remmedies on this site, have been using prep H, wipes with witch hazel, prescription hydocortizone suppositories, hot sitz baths, apple cider vinnegar both on the hemorrhoids themselves and taking internally, nothing is working. I even shoved a raw clove of garlic up there as my homeopathic remedy book suggested. NOTHING is helping. I am in so much agony every day that I am suffering from depression, not enjoying my life and my baby as I should be, and am feeling like giving up. I cry every day. I eat tons of fiberous foods, drink tons of water, take fiber pills daily, don't strain on the toilet, do not have hard stools, go once a day like clock work. I am starting to worry that I am dying, have cancer or something is really wrong with me. For about half the day after I have a BM, I am in such pain. Not only does it hurt around my anus, but my butt cheeks are sore and numb, the mussles around my vagina hurt, my groin, the backs of my legs are throbbing and numb, and feel almost cold. Do other ppl with bad hemorrhoids have this also??? Well anyways, I just swallowed three black whole peppercorns with a huge glass of water. I am praying that this is some sort of miracle cure and not a joke. I guess I will let you all know, but if there is anyone out there with some advice for me I would love to hear it. I really just can"t live like this any more.... Please Help!!!!

HI Tracy - Sorry to hear about the problems you've been having with hemorrhoids. Have you tried taking 500 mg of Rutin a day? You can get it from a health food store. A pharmacist recommended it to my husband and, fortunately, it worked quickly (less than a week). Good luck!

Tracy... so sorry you are in such agony. I also tried everything, although mine was not as severe as what you are experiencing, but what 'cured' my Hemorrhoids was to spray my privates (front and back) each time I used the bathroom, keeping the area clean. I carried a small spray bottle in my purse filled with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. It's been 3 years since I began this protocol, now I just spray after shower and bed-time. I suspected that perfumed soaps and chemicals aggravated this condition. Hope this helps.

Hi Tracy, Sorry to hear you're suffering so much and not enjoying your life. I had a lot of trouble with this too when I had my babies. What really helped finally was acupuncture. Hemmoroids have to do with the chi energy. You can get treated and the hemmoroids will rise back up into the body. I really hope you can look into this. The acupuncture can also treat your depression. Chinese medicine can really help you, I am certain. Peace, Lisa

Hi Everyone! Thanks so much for your comments. I am writing an update on this seemingly silly peppercorn remmedy. Well, I am a bit bewildered as to how, but I can say that I think it is actually working! Lol. I still have the hemorrhoids, but they seem to be shrinking, and I am in at least 75% less pain. I've been swallowing 4 black peppercorns morning and night on an empty stomach. Spiritually I feel absolutely wonderful. I am generally a very happy person, and each day I would wake up happy and eager to start my day off with my new baby, and then after I had a bowell movement everything would just go down hill. The throbbing would start, the pain would be unbearable and my spirit would sink and so would begin a day of misery. It is amazing how pain can affect one's spiritual well being. Well, it has been about a week of trying this, and I can say that I have not cried once. As I said, they are still there, but remarkably smaller and less painful. My day doesn't seem to be affected at all right now. This remmedy is definately not a prank as there really hasn't been any adverse affect as in burning or irritation caused by the peppercorns. I am going to continue this regemine, and see what happens. Part of me is so skeptical about how this could possibly work that I keep thinking maybe it is something else that is helping, but I'm really not doing anything else for them or anything different that could explain it. Anyways, as long as things stay on a positive path of improvement I am happy. But if this really works, I really want to help others who are suffering so I will continue to report on my progress. And when I say that I have had an incredibly bad case of hemorrhoids, I mean BAD!!! So if this can work for me, I know it can deffinately help others. Thanks for your support everyone. I'll keep y'all posted! Happy to be happy again, and really hoping it stays this way! :-)

Hi Tracy. Thank ou for posting your story. It is like you were telling my story. I have been suffering now for about 5 months. I too, have thought and wondered if somehing else is going on with me...cancer, am I dying, etc? These hemorrhoids are destroying my life in every sense. I am going to start the peppercorns tonight. I am afraid to even hope. All of the research on the internet has so many people with this or that, which has worked for them...but NONE of it for me. It's been a rough ride, and I DESPERATELY want off. I would love to know if you are cured now. I am hopeful with this.

This is regarding Tracy's symptoms. I too have had much trouble & comes & goes. Some of my worst symptoms sound similar.

But this I learned after years and doctors. I was finally told I had Crohns & Colitis. I began to research & found this is an inflammatory bowel condition. It began to click. At that time I was having a horrible time. It seems I can not have a movement without extreme difficulty despite what I do or take. Even with enemas it is a strain many times. No, I do not take medications for it. I could never figure out why it was such a struggle, despite herbs, fiber, diet, etc.

So, I realized that I was indeed severely inflamed in the rectal region, at that time, actually practically swollen shut! Of course I had to strain! Of course my hems were flared! And they were being strangled and squeezed continually. I have previously had a procedure for them.

Researching what I could do naturally for them, I found an all fruit regimen would reduce symptoms. In 3 days I could tell the swelling was down. Life became much easier! I continued for 3 weeks, blending lots of smoothies. Of course my candida loved it too, but I got relief. Grains, and sugar are definite no no's for me. It is a straight and narrow path for my diet, any deviation, will usually bring symptoms back. But when you can see a pronounced result, you are much more inclined to stick with it.

If someone had identified the culprit sooner, I could have been spared much suffering. Diet is crucial when you have Crohns or colitis.

Hope someone else may find this useful!
