Hemorrhoids are swollen or inflamed veins in the anus and lower rectum that can be itchy, painful, and potentially cause bleeding during bowel movements. There are two types of hemorrhoids, internal and external. External hemorrhoids are located under the skin around the anus, and the delicate skin there can be easily irritated and bleed during a bowel movement. Blood clots can form in external hemorrhoids and cause a great deal of pain and inflammation. On the other hand, internal hemorrhoids are less noticeable, but straining during a bowel movement can irritate the delicate surface of the hemorrhoid and cause bleeding or pass the hemorrhoid outside the anus; this is called a protruding or prolapsed hemorrhoid and can be very painful.

Hemorrhoid symptoms include painless bleeding during bowel movements that results in bright red blood, itching, irritation, or swelling in the anus, the formation of a sensitive or painful lump near the anus, and sometimes anal leakage.

6 Inch Step  
4 User Reviews | 3 YEA

Posted by Gaetano (St. Louis, Missouri, Us) on 02/04/2013

[YEA]  The 6" step to allow squatting on the toilet is what seems to work best for me. I'm 19 and my first hemorrhoid appeared two months ago: small protrusion from the anus that retracted within days. The itchiness and minor swelling persisted though. Sitting was uncomfortable and pretty much throughout the whole day my bum was itchy or irritated. I never saw a proper doctor, but from talking to my dad (an ob/gyn) determined it was probably a small internal one. I tried the garlic suppositories (5 days), Candida Cleanse diet (5 days only eating vegetables; didn't do the detox drinks or other supplements), Apple Cider Vinegar, Witch Hazel Wipes, and generic hemorrhoid cream, but nothing seamed to work effectively (though the garlic suppositories did make bowel movements much easier with no straining).

I started using the 6 inch step (two shoeboxes for my tall toilet) and the irritation and itching have declined significantly. Now only a few times per day do I even take notice of any irritation and it is minor and goes away if I don't think about it.

It is more natural for us to squat when defecating. It loosens the muscle in the colon that controls continence and allows an open path for stool with less straining. Non-western countries where squatting is the norm have very low rates of hemorrhoids (compared to America where more than half the population will have them at some point).

Of course a healthy diet and exercise have been shown (more empirically than squatting) to increase ease of bowel movements and prevention of hemorrhoids, but the 6" step is probably the most efficient way of alleviating hemorrhoids.

Google 'squatty potty' or 'slate don't just sit there' for some informational videos/articles on the subject.

Quick Help: you need to reduce the straining, this is the most basic cause of Hemorrhoids and the easiest and more efficient way to do that day in and day out is when you are on the toilet by using water from a Hand Held Bidet Sprayer. Like a mini-power enema you can shoot some water up inside to get thing looser and moving without straining. As little or as much as you need.

[YEA]  I have been plauged for years with hemmroids. I read in an Ayurveda book about propping the legs, so I started keeping a 6" footstool (cheap plantstand purchased in a craft store) by the toilet. I put it in front of the toilet and put my feet on it, and it has given me great relief from hemmroids over the last six months I've been using it.


Posted by Nick (Tasmania, Australia) on 08/13/2006

[YEA]  A 6 inch step in front of my toilet bowl to raise my knees while seated on toilet. Passing a motion. It reduces Hemorrhoids and assists with your bowel motions. Saw this a long time ago. Theory is your system works easier with knees raised, as your bowels inside are less restricted in flow. Like Asian squat type toilets. It works. Made a small wooden raised stand. We move to side when not in use..Wife and I used it for 5 years so far and both recommend it. To try idea, at first get eg 2 house bricks. Whist seated on toilet put both feet on one in front. Your knees raise and your "flow" is easier.

[YEA]  Wow, I now understand the term "pain in the rear"! I had developed a severe thrombosed hemorrhoid 2 years ago. I did pop after awhile and then the year of oozing happened and pain and swelling went down (I would say down 70% on both aspects). Now on year 2 and the fill up of the hemorrhoid happened again. The pain came back, twice as bad. I started buying everything hemorrhoid related again, that I didn't try the 1st time. After a month of irritation and nothing to seem to work on them, I decided to try ACV. At 1st I felt it worked, with just a few moments of sting and then gone. After 3-4 days of this, the stinging started when I applied it and then got worse, so I stopped after a week of pain. I then tried hemorrhoid ointments again. Wow, the pain they brought on was too unbearable. Surgery is not an option, as I know 2 people who had multiple surgery for the same thing and both cases, came back again, so both people told me not to do it, unless you literally can not walk or sit (at all). I do take Rutin (2weeks now, but no help). Yesterday I read about aloe and thought, right, just like everything else, its a gimmick. I felt, why not try, what can it hurt (lol - after irritating it with everything else, specially prep-h), so I went to healthfood store and bought 99%pure aloe gel and 100% safe drinking aloe. I got home and rubbed the gel on the hemorrhoid for the 1st time. I filled the bathtub up, just in case I need a quick rinse to get it off. As I sat and wait for the burn of the century, I wait and wait and wait. Still no burn, actually some relief. I was sitting with amazement. I am now on day two. The pain is 80% gone when I apply. I am waiting to see if aloe helps shrink it. I rub aloe all over the area daily and drink 2 oz of the drink twice a day. If it goes down or improves greatly, I will be amazed. I live in Co and wondered if the cold winter didn't help and made it flare up again. So far I am amazed with what aloe has done. Anything on the market that says hemrroid relief, is a gimmick. Only Witch Hazel and sitz bath, give temp. relief. I do not want temp. relief, I want pure relief. If surgery would work, with no recurrence, then I would take the painful recovery and do it, but that is not the case of most who get it done.

[YEA]  Thought I had stomach ulcer. Knawing terrible pain. First I stopped drinking coffee and any caffeine for about a week which was difficult but helped a lot. At the same time I took aloe vera gel caps, garlic caps, fish oil caps, gse, and occasionally very small pieces of fresh garlic clove swallowed whole with meals morning and evening. I ate Campbells chicken noodle, and vegetable soups, rasin bran with very little milk, eggs, and plenty of power aide and water. Followed this for about two weeks and now feel normal. Started feeling some relief within a few days. Now I can drink a cup of coffee(not too strong and with milk added) with my wife in the morning. I was dealing with hemroids at the same time and they have cleared up also. One thing I found to really help hemroids is 100% aloe vera clear jel from Wal Mart and applied to toilet paper for a final clense after b movements. Have a good day!

[YEA]  Hello All, I am so grateful I found this site. I was getting desperate to find a remedy that worked in the hope of avoiding a doctor's visit. Well, I tried a little bit of this and a little bit of that as suggested on this site and here's what worked for me. After about a week of bleeding 'roids, I tried the sitz bath, the ACV which helped to calm things externally, but there was still the issue of internal roids with bleeding so I decided to experiment with the aloe vera suggestion and take it a step further. In addition to drinking the Aloe Vera juice, I also filleted a small piece, sprinkled a little cayenne pepper (known to stop bleeding) on it and chilled it. Because the piece of Aloe is so small and also soft it was not very easy to insert bc of the sore tissue. I inserted as best I could and then used a homeopathic suppository to help insert it further. Yes, it was hella' hot, but hardly as painful as the roids. The next morning... Less blood and swelling; so, I tried another application (although this is best used before bedtime in case it's too hot for you, you can wash away some of the hotness because you're still at home! )... The following day... No blood and the swelling was gone. that was over a week ago and no problem yet.

[YEA]  My ex-husband used aloe vera gel to cure his hemorrhoid. He was really sick and didn't have health insurance. I looked up a cure on the net and had aloe and gave him the gel which he inserted. He said the next day the pain was gone and he had been in pain for almost a week! Within a few days the hemorrhoid was gone!


Posted by Steve (Emmett, Idaho)

[YEA]  As an office worker I have suffered from the occasional bout of hemorrhoids. I read in one of my herb books that aloe gel was a good remedy. I like natural remedies so I tried it and it immediately helped relieve the pain and the hemorrhoid healed within a week. It works every time. Apply liberally twice each day. Wash your hands before and after application to avoid infection. What are you waiting for, give it a try, it works! Hemorrhoids can be prevented by improving digestion. Apple Cider Vinegar to the rescue.

[YEA]  I know everyone out there isn't going to like this, but hemorrhoids are symptoms of CANDIDA overgrowth. That's the reason that cleansing the area with apple cider vinegar is often effective - it balances the pH because although it's an acid, it has an alkalizing effect. Drinking apple cider vinegar also helps to alkalize your blood, but you need to eat other alkalizing foods too (and minimize acid forming foods) to experience true alkalization. So, another effective remedy that will not burn the way apple cider vinegar does, is one that also works for women's yeast infections. It was given to me by a conventional doctor and I modified it. The doctor told me that filling a capsule (which you can purchase at a pharmacy or at a health food store) with BORIC ACID and then inserting the capsule into the vagina will balance the pH and stop yeast infections. He said to do it every day that a yeast infection is present, and then once a week afterwards. Tou can buy boric acid at a pharmacy without a prescription. It's a powder. Since I have done this many years ago, I haven't experienced a single yeast infection (touch wood) and I've stopped using the capsules. Later on, I discovered that mixing the boric acid in coconut oil can be used for treating yeast AND hemorrhoids (mix it into a paste and store it in a small glass jar - I use extra virgin, organic coconut oil). The hemorrhoids you are experiencing are really just a kind of yeast infection in your anus. So, if you have hemorrhoids, you need to first look at your diet. Eliminate the easier forms of sugar - stop eating white flour and processed foods - spelt is a DELICIOUS substitute for white flour, and increase your intake of vegetables, particularly fresh. They will add bulk to push food quickly through your system. Drink lots of water, cut out pop and sugary drinks, and add a bit of fresh lemon to your water. Lemon juice will help to alkalize your system too. For fiber, grind a couple of tablespoons of flax seeds in a coffee grinder (I have one dedicated just for flax seeds) and mix with water. You can add a tiny amount of psyllium for bulk, but make sure it's organic, because psyllium is very highly sprayed with pesticides. Take a good probiotic, such as Garden of Life, FAITHFULLY, to repopulate the good flora in your system. Consider doing a gentle cleanse - one where you work up to only green vegetable juices and water for a few days (along with ground flax seeds for fiber). Also, take a good magnesium supplement to soften and regulate your stools. You will know when you are taking enough magnesium when you go number two several times a day but it's not liquid. Prune juice is an excellent addition too. A great magnesium supplement is Calm by Peter Gillingham. Please let me know how this works for you!

[YEA]   I want to add onto what Hmmm444 had discovered: Candida overgrowth is a major cause of hemorrhoid. That was an important finding. To check whether you have candida overgrowth in your body, look at your tongue in the morning. If it has a thick white coating and looks bloated that is a sign.

In TCM, that's traditionally a sign of internal dampness that is the cause of many diseases. It is said that the drying function of the body, called the "Spleen" is failing. Dampness is fertile ground for yeast to overgrow causing flatulence, inflammation and even bleeding. The latter are the body's attempts to rid of the fermentation that these bad bacteria produce. The dampness and candida overgrowth in the intestine also disrupt the normal functions of the bowels resulting in constipation. That's my theory after experiencing hemorrhoid for many years and now tackling it the right way.

Hmmm444 has offered valuable suggestions like cutting down on sugar, white wheat flour (SCD diet forbids it completely as it is the major cause of IBD/IBS), processed and acidic foods.

I want to add an important remedy: GARLIC. (Unless you are allergic to it, you should try it. As for allergy, I wonder if it is the effect of garlic working and perhaps one should go slow and build up the dosage slowly. )

I think garlic is not an ordinary herb but a living force in itself. It produces Allicin only when cut or crushed. Allicin is anti-bacterial and works even on bacteria resistant to the doctor's antibiotics. Garlic also has other numerous ingredients good for the body. This has been well researched by experts over the years.

Garlic kill off candia and dries up the dampness in the intestines. Peel 2 cloves of garlic and chop it into fine pieces. Leave it in the open for 15 minutes to allow the Allicin that destroy bad bacteria to be produced. After 15 minutes consume it and here's the TRICK on how to do it without problem. You see, even though I know for many years that garlic is very good for the body, I deprived myself of raw garlic because I found it quite impossible to eat it by drinking it with liquid because of its very pungent taste.

Now I am able to do so by SWALLOWING the chopped garlic with liquid. I usually take some food like a glass of unsweetened soya milk first; then I wash down the chopped garlic in several gulps. That was easy, my tongue did not get burnt by it. Eat 2 cloves this way, two to three times daily. Next morning when you check your tongue, the white coating would be not be there; that's a good sign. Your hemorrhoid inflammation would be improved and any bleeding due to water retention in that area would be remedied. One doctor even recommended inserting a garlic clove into the rectum at night. I hesitated to do that for a long time but when I tried the method, I found to my surprise there was indeed no or very little irritation.

To end, I think hemorrhoid, IBD, IBS are basically symptoms of the same problem - water retention and overgrowth of bad bacteria - but at different stages of development. I am also a sufferer of IBS for many years and when I use garlic and non-acidic and no-wheat diet, my problem improved. Especially with garlic the improvement has been dramatic.

Further to my post dated 06/15/2011 above, here's more information which hopefully will be helpful for other sufferers.

I think hemorrhoid is a symptom of a more systemic problem - bad intestinal bacteria that putrefies, unload its wastes or toxins, thus causing inflammation and its attendant problems. These disorders are known to us as IBS and IBD.

So, I am going to write this post with a wider scope in mind namely how I treated my IBS & IBD.

There is a news report months back saying that there is now a suspicion in conventional medicine that serious diseases may be caused by bad bacteria in the intestines. I think this is on the right track. The only problem is that even if they finally confirm that bad bacteria are the root culprits, conventional medicine will continue to resort to man-made antibiotics instead of natural ones to kill bad bacteria.

Anyway my own experience in using raw garlic 3 times daily over the last 3 months is that the colon discomfort/pain I used to suffer for more than 30 years is completely gone. Serious.

Months previous to that, I had tried a strict wheat and sugar free diet recommended by SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet). That did help but I felt that it was a case of depriving the bad bacteria of food they feed on, thus weakening them. However the diet did not finish them off effectively. The moment I took some bread for example, the symptoms came back the next day.

After 3 months on raw garlic, now I found that I no longer have problem eating bread, sugar and those foods - even at night - that I was once so sensitive to. This is quite a marvel to say the least.

In the past, I also tried high doses of expensive probiotics but gave up after several months because they were too weak to deal with the bad bacteria. Yet garlic a cheap kitchen spice completely turned my life around. You just have to take it religiously several times daily for a few months. It is known that garlic not only kills off the bad bacteria - Candida, E Coli, even MRSA - but also promotes the good bacteria. There are numerous reports on that over the Internet.

Another wonder herb that I have found to help intestinal inflammation (hemorrhoid included) is WHITE OAK BARK.

Take white oak bark capsules with garlic daily for a few month and you may see your IBS & IBD (hemorrhoids included) go into remission, even for long-standing cases.

It may come as a surprise that the great efficacy of these 2 herbs - raw garlic & white oak bark - for intestinal complaints were strongly recommended in the book "Secrets of the Chinese Herbalists" by Richard Lucas written more than 30 years ago!

However it took me a long time to undersrtand I need to use the correct regimen, that is consuming them on a daily basis in regular dosages for a few months to see dramatic results for chronic cases like mine.

So if you are running out of options, why not give yourself a try with these 2 herbs for 2 to 3 months. If you are successful please come back and let others know.

Hi, How much raw garlic did you consume daily? Did you take a break, say without garlic for 1 or 2 days of the week? Thanks.

I take anything from 2 to 4 cloves of fresh garlic 2 to 3 times daily. For easy consumption, chop them into tiny bits and then gulp them down with water. Try not to sip the garlic slowly because as you know it very pungent. Remember also to take some food before that so that your stomach can take the pungency.

I did not take a break from daily garlic consumption for over 2 months. I have not experienced any problem with it. Some people may have allergy to garlic like getting diarrhea. However as I pointed in my first post, this could be a temporary reaction, so if one go slow taking a little bit and build up the dosage over time, the reaction might go off. Just a suggestion for those allergic to garlic.


Antibacterial Soap, Alcohol Poultice

Posted by Army Man (Philadelphia, PA) on 07/21/2009

[YEA]  Read Carefully: To cut down on the instance of hemorrhoids, clean yourself with diluted antibacterial soap or soap and water every time you move your bowels. Make sure you leave no residue -- ever. The bacteria from not wiping with soap and water invades the smallest cut in the anal area and the hemorrhoids gradually begin to from, often with an anal fissure. Here's an illustration. If a person serving food got feces on his hand, would you prefer that he wipe the spot with plain dry toilet paper, or wash the spot thoroughly with antibacterial soap before preparing your food? It's the same with your rectal area.

To treat the anal fissue, make a poultice SOAKED IN ALCOHOL out of a piece of a paper towel, apply it to the area where the fissure is or is starting to become painful, indicating the emergence of an anal fissure, and sit on the poultice, rewetting it with alcohol when it dries. Do this for as many days (nights, too) as it takes to rid yourself of the fissure. As soon as you feel the fissure forming (when the rectal area hasn't yet formed a tear, but is "telltale" sore), immediately apply the alcohol soaked poultice. The alcohol will eventually dry out the surrounding skin, forming a superfical scabbing or blistering. Just keep the area immaculately clean by often cleansing with diluted antibacterial soap. The soap doesn't have to be full strength; the idea is to get the rectal area immaculately cleansed when dirty.

[YEA]  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.

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.

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.

[YEA]  I began having hemorrhoid issues in Jan of 2012.For the past three years I have had really bad case of bleeding. It turned out I have external and internal Hemorrhoids. I tried every natural cure, nothing worked. BUT, and thank God, here is how I cured my problem, both external and internal ones. I wiped with Apple cider vinegar for about a week, this completely cured the external ones.

For the internal ones, I sliced garlic and shoved up in my rear end. Garlic is like napalm against fungus and other bacteria. Within one day, all my internal hemorrhoids were gone. After three years of bleeding like a woman on her period, I am completely cured. 100 % gone. Side effect free.

I must say, at first when you wipe with ACV it burns, but keep at it, its temporary pain. and the garlic has a huge after taste in your mouth once you used it as a suppository. But it works :)

How did you insert the sliced garlic? Just raw or with oil like coconut oil. I get some blood on t- paper after I wipe, I'm assuming it from internal hemorrhiods. Thanks for your time.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  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...

Try taking rutin, or any bioflavanoids. it's worked for me. but you have to take it everyday without fail.

[YEA]   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!

[YEA]  After 40 years (since I was 12) of suffering with hemorrhoids, I tried the ACV suggested in the remedies section. I saturated a cotton wool ball with half water half ACV, and held it in place about 3 minutes. Remarkable relief! Yes, it stung a bit (mine are stage 4) but no pain near like the problem itself. I've continued this for several days, adding an 'insertion' of liquid vitamin E oil, about 3-4 drops, twice daily, using a finger cot. The results are amazing. I've had about 50% shrinkage in the external pile, something I haven't seen since giving birth 30 years ago. Nothing a doctor has ever given me has provided the relief and shrinking that the ACV and vitamin E have! And no, hemorrhoids aren't always caused by poor diet. I was raised on garden fresh vegetables and home cooked meals. Mine are just plain hereditary! Try the ACV and E oil. Also, I'm using diluted ACV now as a cleanser after visiting the toilet, instead of moist wipes. Hope this helps someone else as much as it has me!
