Apple Cider Vinegar   79  7   

Posted by Knk25 (Willis, Texas) on 05/30/2013

[YEA]  Ever since the birth of my daughter two years ago I've been battling hemorrhoids. Once I was unfortunate enough to get one during labor with her it was like they would come on at the smallest provocation. Usually they last a few weeks, while I use witch hazel to try to get rid of them. Well I was 3 days in with one today, and this one was much less bareable than the previous ones I've had. Witch hazel just wasn't cutting it. I got on here and looked to see if ACV would help, because it seems like that stuff helps with everything. Sure enough, I read tons of posts saying that it would help, so I tried it out. 3 hours later and the pain and irritation are mostly gone, and the hemorrhoid has already shrunken considerably! I can hardly believe it. I just applied some ACV to a paper towel and then pressed it up against the hemorrhoid and left it there. It didn't even sting all that much, for which I was very thankful. I would definitely recommend to anyone using ACV for hemorrhoids!

You can also take serrapeptase--an enzyme that digests tissue such as scars, hemi's, etc. I take one first thing in the morning, no hemi's since then. Also, no knee pain from old injury.

[YEA]  I just want to thank everyone on this site for their feedback on the ACV for hemorrhoids. I am a hemorrhoid sufferer for over 30 years.. I came back hoping I might help some one too.. My hemorrhoid was the size of a small potato a week ago. I was sent for emergency surgery by my doctors which terrified me.. So I start searching the net for any help I could get and I came across this site... I started the remedy rite away after reading a few comments.. Been a week now must say it burn for the first 10-15 mins but it works ppl.. Give ACV a try first before going to surgery.. I apply it with aloe gel mix together because it's too strong for me pure.. You can apply other ointment after too to help with the pain /burning which I did.. Long story short ACV works for hemorrhoids it can save you the horror of surgery and everyday annoying pain in the ass!! For the first time I can sit with out twisting, whining I have been in bed most of the time this passed week.. I drink 2 tbs in a glass of water too.

[YEA]  I've had rather small roids for ages, not really worried about them as they've mostly been painless. Unfortunately, for the past 2 years they started to itch, went to the doctor straight away, got an steroid cream that he recommended me to use *for months* which of course didn't work. Then I tried pretty much everything else similar, nothing worked at all, and the itch became 24x7, very very annoying. Then, the miracle. Got to this page, thought "don't lose anything", tried the Apple Cider Vinegar with cotton buds, burned like hell but after 5-10 minutes peace again. I'm on the 4th day, doing this only in the mornings after the daily shower, and the itch is GONE. Of course the Apple Cider Vinegar burns a bit but it's a completely different thing, very tolerable unlike before. I wholeheartedly recommend this remedy, just make sure it's not bleeding down there, that's it. Take care and hopefully you get better soon too!!

[YEA]  Thanks so much for sharing, this site really helped with a bright red bloody roid. I couldn't believe what I saw when I wiped. The tissue was so red I thought, cancel Christmas! Having no insurance and starting a new job I needed a quick fix.

After reading the threads, I got a paper towel and soaked the end of it and spread the cheeks while s-l-o-w-l-y moving the towel toward the bloody spot. I thought it would be so painful that I would kick a hole in the ceiling, but quite the opposite. It was a mild discomfort mainly from the roid, but I was able to release and let the cheeks hold it in place put on underware and went to bed.

Almost immediate relief, better in the morning. The only blood was at the tip of the paper towel. The size of the hole was about that of an eraser on a number 2 pencil. I have always used the "meta" fiber but I'd miss a day or 3 here and there so I would find myself straining a bit on occasion. But I've been using Apple Cider Vinegar for two days (the same way sleeping through the nite, shower in the morn and no more blood or pain and it is starting to get smaller in size already. I am starting the minced garlic on a spoon with water chase a time or two daily.

I will update... But again thanks sooooo much, I thought it was time to cash in my chips! Who knew something so simple could help and so quick!!!

Only one person has mentioned about a cut on external hemorrhoids and I wanted to discuss my experience. I have an external one and applying ACV on it directly has worked in the past, but not this past week. The burn from the cut is so intense after applying the ACV, I was shaking in pain. I'm still ingesting it (8oz water to 2 tsp of acv), because I'm a firm believer of the ACV.

I'm going on 6 days and the rawness of the cut is still fresh. I want to try ACV again, but so scared the pain will set me back another few days of healing time. I waddle, I can't sit and I'm either lying down or standing most of the time. I found the sitz bath in cold water for 2 minutes is sufficient. I also switched from warm methods like using a cold pack, wrapped in new plastic food wrap for hygience purposes and applying directly to the roid for 2 minutes max.

I'm still in pain (fresh cut), but it's tolerable since it's shrunk a tiny bit since using all my methods above.

So what happened to your Roids? Please let me know.

[YEA]  I'm a 31 year old white male, 135 lbs. , 5'7". I had a hemorrhoid for about 2 years. Tried several creams. Really like wiping with Desitin diaper rash cream (the generic).

I came to this site and saw all the reviews, over a hundred I think, for ACV for hemorrhoids. After reading the reviews, I rushed to the grocery store in the middle of the night, bought some ACV for about $6, and cotton balls and bandaids. I took a bath with about a cup of ACV in it, stayed in it for at least half an hour.

Then I did what I really think cured it...I soaked a cotton ball in ACV, then taped it to my hemorrhoid with a bandaid or two. Then I put boxers on, sat on it and soon went to bed (leaving it on).

The next day, I checked my roid, and I swore it was half the size (it had been the size of a kidney bean for 2 yrs).

I still wasn't sure, but I felt optimistic. It might've been my imagination, but in 2 years you get pretty familiar with the size of your hemorrhoid.

Anyway, I continued, doing it no more than twice a day, maybe 3 times (I doubt it would go away faster if the applications were more frequent.. Maybe I only needed to do it once). So within 3 or 4 days, the hemmorhoid was completely gone. Then I stopped doing the cottonball thing.

That was in April of 2012, and now it's December 2012. So 7 months with no return of the hemorrhoid.

This has honestly changed an entire outlook in my mind. If I suffered for 2 years with no help from conventional medicine, then I find the wisdom in a crowd on the internet, and heal myself in a few days with $6, with vinegar! , what else am I missing!! ??

So after this cure, I sought youtube videos on hemorrhoids, people trying to peddle their hemorrhoid products, and I wrote comments on the videos spreading the word. "All you need is apple cider vinegar, it'll be gone a few days. Don't spend your money! "

I think white vinegar would probably work too. Most people have vinegar already in their house.

To be honest, after this cure, my trust in conventional medicine, in doctors, has taken a nose-dive. How many people suffer from hemorrhoids, go to their doctors, and their clumsy doctors don't even know about this?

Doctors won't tell people about simple things that will help because of Big Pharma. They won't make any money if you don't have to come back and pharmaceutical companies don't make any money from things like apple cider vinegar. It is truly sad. I am going to try the ACV for my hemorrhoid that is the size of a marble. I can't imagine having a larger hemorrhoid. This pain is horrible!

[YEA]  I recently read somewhere that putting raw Apple Cider Vinegar on your hemorrhoids is very soothing and helps them to heal quickly. I had a flair up, and nothing I was using was working (and I only use natural items) So, I grabbed a Viva Paper towel (the softest I could find), doused it with a bunch of _____s Apple Cider Vinegar and then went in to apply it after cleaning the area gently.

Wow, it burns some, however, in about 5 minutes I was already feeling relief and I was completely over my hemorrhoids within hours. (and one more additional treatment)

So I can emphatically suggest using Apple Cider Vinegar in this way.

[YEA]  YEA F0R APPLE CIDER VINEGAR FOR HEMORROIDS. I found that using a q tip soaked in Apple Cider Vinegar was much easier for me due to swelling and tightness. I simply used a few soaked q tips to clean area after bowel movements and at bedtime with very slight insertion, half inch at the most, cured mine. I had a lot of bleeding, pain, swelling, etc. And cold not use anything larger than a q tip. It has taken about two weeks, with much improvement in just a few days. For good measure I have done some extra treatments during the day up to three times a day. I avoid coffee that is too strong which causes forced movements.

[YEA]  Wow- I just found this site, and within ten minutes of saturating a cotton ball with ACV and applying to the affected area, the itching has subsided, and the pain has lessened to the point where I am no longer squirming in my seat, as I type this, in the usual vain attempt to find a comfortable position. How happy I am to have found this thread! I had forgotten the bit about adding ACV to one's drinking water, and after reading the previous comments, have done just that. I suspect too many dietary sugars and carbohydrates (which I usually eat very sparingly), and too few green leafies, combined with a recent eight-hour air flight, has skewed my system somewhat. I am interested in seeing how well this brings things back to balance. Thanks to all for the input here!

[YEA]  I had been suffering for almost a week from constipation caused my hemorrhoids, as if they werent bad enough alone. I tried drinking ACV amongst other things, and I finally gave in and decided to apply a cotton ball soaked in ACV for 10 or 15 seconds. And OUCH! It stung pretty badly BUT no worse than the pain of sitting on it, I suppose. Within a few minutes I felt much better. I applied a cotton ball for 10 to 15 seconds two more times that day. By the next morning they were almost completely gone, and I was able to relieve myself with ease. (i've never been so happy to have a BM in my life. ) The ACV cottonball did sting a bit, but it definitely worked for me.

[YEA]   Apple Cider Vinegar made my hemorrhoid vanish after a couple days of applying the ACV with a cotton ball. I put on a vinyl glove and applied it with a mirror.

I've had this darn thing for over a year and hated it. I'm grateful to this website for all the reviews... I just saw that ACV had the highest # of reviews for hemorrhoid cure. So simple! Can't believe I've lived with this for over a year.

(Not sure how to add my "Yea" positive review... So I'm just replying to someone else's)

I am now trying the ACV remedy you both speak of with a cotten ball in there as we speak. I have dealt with Stage 3 Internal for 10 years have been taught and fool proof to push them back in after every BM. I got a flare up an external (currently) and these clearly are awful. I will report back. I keep reading on the web about putting a garlic clove as a suppository... Anyone try?

I believe in ACV for many reasons, but have not so far tried it direct onto an exterior haemorrhoid, but am now going to do so. I have dreadful irritation all the time, and also believe I have candida. In fact, I have terrible burning and irritation everywhere down there. Trouble is I am disabled and being disabled, all I can do is either sit or lay, which is very painful.

I am now going to start taking ACV again and use it on a pad in the cheeks, trusting it will give some relief and also reduce the haemorrhoid. Nothing else has touched it, despite trying very many so-called remedies.

[YEA]  After having my thyroid removed, almost two years ago, my whole system has been out of whack. My doc re-evaluated all my meds as I was seriously in need of some help, but the side effect of this was constant diarrhea. ( I just realised the cause ) Sometimes I go 3 times a day, the constant pain and dread of pooing razor blades has sapped my energy and joy for so long! I have been in total agony for 8 months with roids that creams would not fix. I tried wheatgrass which helped after about 6 weeks but not competely as I ran out and they were worse than ever.

I read this Apple Cider Vinegar natural treatment last week and have tried it out of desperation. Finally something that works! I keep a small bottle of it near the loo and wipe myself with it whenever I go, and took the suggestion of a cotton ball soaked in acv and used that three times a day. It sure did sting for a while but after the roid shrunk in size after about 4-5 days I realised there was another one there behind it that was causing the recent pain. Now it too is finally shrinking with acv! Even wiping myself with it on some tp means for the first time in months I've been able to clean myself properly. I've also added it to some foods and been sipping a few teaspoons in a drink bottle as often as I think of it. ACv really does work and it's been such a relief! I hope it cures them completely which may take another week at this rate but after what we go thru it's worth it. So very worth trying! I hope it works for all other readers who give it a go.

[YEA]  After suffering the past 6 weeks with a painful hemorrhoid, I finally found EarthClinic and the apple cider vinegar treatment. I have been in agony and tears the past few weeks. I have tried everything until today when I bought some ACV. I first poured about a cup of it in the bath along with warm water and immediately felt relief.

I was afraid to put it directly on the area, my skin is very sensitive anyway, so I first diluted a cotton pad with a little water and then soaked it in ACV. I felt a cooling sensation and it didn't burn at all. I got braver and then soaked the cotton pad in ACV and stuck it in my "area". I finished getting dressed and afterward felt a lot better, more so than anything I have tried. I also drank a bit diluted in water, it wasn't that bad. I will continue to drink this. I also think that my hemorrhoids were caused by the sugary, fattening holiday foods! I hope that this helps someone.

[YEA]   Yes it worked for me. Sitz bath 15 to 25 min. each with 1 cup of ancestral type apple cider vinegar 3 to 4 times per day. 97% gone so I keep going. I also increased fiber intake and put cornstach on between treatment. Having a laptop or tablet while bath sitting will make the treatment more 'fun'.

Dear ACV, I can't wait to start, suffering is not a option no more. I am diabetic so hopefully this will also help me. I am sure it was a combination of sweets and good old fashion food. Doctors are not getting anywhere with my roids. They want to cut them off! OUCH!! So trying every known method of cure to help myself out and be richer for it in the long run. Remedy vs surgery AMEN!!

[YEA]  I have just started using Apple Cider Vinegar last week after coming across this site and wow what a difference!!! The bunch of grapes has almost disappeared. I have tried the cotton wool dabbed with the Apple Cider Vinegar and when it burned I decided to sit in the bath with a cup full mixed with water. I'm now also having a teaspoon of it every morning. And being a diabetic the Apple Cider Vinegar has being bringing my sugar levels down. So I I'm killing to birds with one stone.

[YEA]  I have had internal hemorrhoids for about 6 yrs. Very uncomfortable- tried pretty much everything till I found out about Apple Cider Vinegar. The intense pain and burning during and after passing stool was gone after one application the following day.

I placed some Apple Cider Vinegar in an enema bottle, poured a little 2 inch inside my bum about a tablespoonful once a day. Made sure it was cold so I could feel it entering, didn't want to put too much cause you would poop immediately. Also put some on napkin and hold on bum for 10-20 min 3 times a day.

Hi,

Just wondering if you tried drinking ACV. Apparently it works well for internal hemorrhoids. I have been suffering for almost 6 years as well and although they are painless I am almost never able to evacuate completely and often need to go more than once (sorry for the details). I am wondering if drinking it will help. How did it work for you? Thanks. M

[YEA]  Have been suffering with hemmoroids for the past 3-4 weeks, but have had them for years. This flare up has been particularly rough. Have tried otc medications plus things ordered over internet. Nothing worked!!! Was considering surgery when I found this website and thought it was worth trying.

Started using ACV and within the past 3 days and there has been considerable reduction in the size, with minimal itching and burning. I no longer wake up at night in agony. Tried sitz bath but that burned alot, so now I just apply to cotton ball and leave on. Still get some burning from that so don't leave on for prolonged period of time (i. E. I could not sleep with the cotton ball in place). After I take the cotton ball off, I then place small cloth covered ice pack post application of ACV. You can buy these ice packs at your local pharmacy - the packs are made for this. Note - I had been using the ice packs with otc meds, but they didn't help reduce size, itching, or burning. The combination of ACV and ice packs IS working!!! Amazed that this is the only thing that has worked for me. They are taking time to heal but think that is just because they had gotten so bad. From now on when I feel them flaring up I will use ACV immediately. Hope this helps someone else.

After my son's birth I suffered from haemorrhoids and tried every remedy I could find. One day I read about garlic and I thought I might as well try this as well.... Never looked back. Never had another problem. Ever. Just use a garlic clove as a suppository. Pointed side up. You may coat it in oil first. Replace it every time you use the toilet. Within 24 hours you will see the difference. It is amazing.
