Apple Cider Vinegar   87  10

[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?

[YEA]   Apple cider vinegar ice cubes is the way to go... Half water half Apple Cider Vinegar and make some ice cubes just pop them in there this really works. I suffered for almost a year. They're all gone now. Thank you acv!!!

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]   I have tried the garlic clove suppository. It worked for a couple of days. They are back. I'm trying the ACV now. Seems to be helping. I want to give the garlic another go. It may take more than one time.

[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'.

I finally got relief by taking 2 T. Of whole bran fiber a day in water. Not bran flakes, just the fiber. I am amazed.

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!!

Laura, 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.

[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.

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.

[YEA]  I have been suffering from hemorrhoids for the past 2 weeks. I have gone to the emergency room and I have gotten so many medications and creams I can't even remember them all. Today at work I was about to quit my job because the pain that I was feeling was unbearable. My friend found this website and told me to go to the store and buy the ACV and to try it out. I rushed to the store and I applied to a cotton ball for like 10 sec. I did this 3 times. In about 2 hours I was able to sit at my desk and go on about my day. I am amazed at how this simply thing took my pain away. This is WONDERFUL!!!!!

It sounds like you did this in the store 3 times. Lol

[YEA]  I've been suffering from hemmoroidal pain since I gave birth to my second baby, three years ago; however, the pain got worse about three weeks ago and its getting worse hour by hour to the point that I can't do anything at home and I can't attend to my family, and I spend the time crying over my excrutiating pain. However, this morning, I started searching the internet for some natural cure, since all the other medicated solutions didn't work at all, and believe it or not, I was standing up by the computer doing the search because I couldn't sit from the pain. While searching, I found that blessed website with info on how helpful ACV is in treating hems. So I digged up an old ACV bottle that I had at home and that we usually use with honey to treat sorethroat, and I dampned a cotton ball with ACV and applied it to the hems and I couldn't believe the result and here I am now couple of hours later sitting in front of the computer and thanking everybody who contributed to this wonderful site. Thank you a million times.

Angel, I cured a hemorrhoid in a couple of days with ACV. Mine was an external one so I soaked a bit of cotton wool and put in in there while I did computer work. I never felt raw or anything and I never washed it away. In maybe two days it was gone. First I had tried some cream which did nothing at all!

[YEA]   Apple cider vinegar as a remedy for hemorrhoids...

I have been in excrutiating pain for over 3 weeks and I've tried everything there was on the counter at the drug store. Gone through way too much prep-H with no benifit. TMI - big hemerrhoid on the outside. I couldn't sit, stand, or walk without almost bursting into tears, had difficult time getting to sleep because of the pain and if I coughed you would think someone had just stabbed me and I would cry for a while. I don't have insurance but was considering going to the doctor anyway (which is a BIG deal for me). I finally found your site yesterday and decided to try the apple cider vinegar as a last resort. Last night I bought a sitz bath and the vinegar (as I had seen some people have bad reaction to the vinegar so I wanted to take it slow and dilute it some) I put in the warm water and added about a cup (maybe a little less) of the vinegar plus I sprinkled a little bit of epsom salt into the water too, sat for about 15 minutes, had no burning just relief, and then went to lay down. (I had tried taking warm baths before but the pressure of sitting in the tub combined with the pressure of getting in and out of the tub was just too much and it didn't help anyway) Within 2 hours of the sitz bath I had the first relief I have felt in a very long time. The pain went almost completely away. Sigh... I did the sitz bath again right before bed with the same ingredients and this morning I got out of bed without having to take my time and fight against the pain. So far today at work I only have minimal discomfort wich is a HUGE step forward. I can actually do my job without breaking down crying every hour. The hemorrhoid has shrunk to a quarter of it's size before. I am so excited at the results so far and I feel I can actually have some hope now. I will be back to let you know how things are going next week. Thanks so much for the information. You've been a God send!

To everyone out there who is reading these comments and thinking that it's all balogna, please give it a try, it can't hurt and the benifits are so worth it.

Dear Kay, A nutrionist called Norman Walker describes how too much carbs can cause hemorrhoids (he explains it in detail in one of his books). Nevertheless, I had the same as you when detoxing (during the healing crisis) and until I realised that the carbs were the problem (take out any white bread and white sugar immediately if you can). Eat raw carrots & include green smoothies or fresh juices to detox the blood and what did the trick for me is take Homeopathic ARNICA D6 every until it gets better --- it is not a traditional remedy for this type of ailment but I think as it works for bruised veins it was the right thing for me --- since changing my diet and taking ARNICA (a week later took C30 as well) it did not return. And if you are sporty --- do reversed yoga poses - this got me through the worst. Hope this helps.

Well I just wanted to come back and let everyone know how everything turned out with the Apple Cyder Vinegar treatment after my initial next day testimony above. (Sorry I forgot to come back and tell you sooner) So the next day I did a few more Sitz sitting for 15 minutes at a time with the ACV, hot water, and Epsom Salt when I got home from work. The next day the roid was even more reduced and I had no more discomfort when sitting (ocassional when walking or moving about) and the day after that it was like I had never had a problem. After 3 weeks of agony (real complete agony, tears, pain etc) I was finally pain free. I never had any reaction to the ACV of any kind but I did take it slow and dilute it in water. I did have a same day lessening of pain when I first tried the solution but it wasn't completely over for a few days. Give it time, get a Sitz Bath (they are only around $5 dollars at Walgreen's) it not only helps clean the area it also gives it a good wash with no pressure. I never did use the "wash" part of it, just the bowl and sat down in the water ACV mixture. I haven't had a problem with roids again till last week and I used this as soon as it started again and never even got to that painful stage. It cleared it right up in a day. I hope you'll try it.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I LOVE ACV!!!!!! I will never look back.

I would sit at home and cry cause everything I put on that area for 'roids' would give me pruritus ani(anal itching)omg!!!! I was stuck in hell then my mum told me to sit in a bath with Apple Cider Vinegar and sit there for 20 mins. I did... No more pain no more itch no more nut case me... Hahaha I still have the roids but I think they are going down... Slowly...... But still no pain I swear by Apple Cider Vinegar it works I can function again... Try it....

[YEA]  im hoping this comment is goin in with all the others coz I just wanted to say thanks so much for sharing this one! I just tried it, after like many here it seems who were also on the edge of getting the chop! To b honest I have lost my faith completely in doctors, and the medical industry is an greedy, heartless embarrasement, so the last thing I wanted to do was to put my hem' probs (which resembled the giant lips off one of the easter island statues! ) in the hands of any vaccination-supporting, pharmacutical-shareholder, knife-and-rubberband-weilding doctors aiming at my holiest of holies! Thank you to the people on this thread!!

Also Im a drummer by trade!! Imagine that pain next time you watch john bonham solo...

Just started today but I had two tablespoons raw ( it nearly knocked me out it was so vile! )..

Then drenched some rolled toilet paper in this ACV, which was now making my apartment smell like an armpit, and shoved it, where I swear there used to be a sword!

10 minutes later, paranoid someone was gonna pop in for a cuppa, and catch me with wadds of foul smelling paper falling out of unkown folds, I hosed my self down, appologised to the neighbour; whos window was slamming shut, and had an hour and a half of bliss!!! Only a little pain remained, I mean little, left to remind me he aint gone yet, but im hoping thats just the start of a total annihilation of this literal pain in the butt!

but peace!!

spread the love

spread the word,

give me today

if tomorrows absurd

i love my music, however now my bedroom is smelling a bit too funky!
