Coconut Oil

I am a nurse's aide and I have used coconut oil on some of my patients hemorrhoids, some so large the patient could not sit down without pain. After using for about 6 months the hemorrhoids have completely gone. Applied externally 2x's a day or after each bowel movement and bath. For sanitary reasons, each person had their own separate bottle for their rectum area only. (no double dipping!!)

Coconut Oil, Cumin

Healed the worst case of Hemorroids imagined by Coconut oil and Ground Cumin!

Fast relief. No faith required.

Latex glove with a nice dob of Coconut oil at finger tips..."cover" and I mean cover the Coconut oil with Ground Cumin

(Mccormicks from the grocery store works just fine thank you)

squat and apply the ointment inside and outside of rectum...may be warm a few seconds..but the trade off is NO MORE Itching no more burning.

As the coconut oil instantly sooths the rawness of affected area (all around inside and out) the Ground Cumin gets to work reducing the size of the "Roid" or "Roids" by getting the circulation flowing from the blocked up rectum tissue causing the pain n swelling in the first place.

Repeat this AM and PM or 3x day if possible.

Optional: Try

Magic Milk "Tonic"...

Warning (Do not drink Magic Milk if taking blood thinning medications)

Magic Milk "Tonic"

1-8oz cup of milk (warm is mighty good)

1/4 tsp of Ground Curry ...

1/4 tsp Ground Tumeric

1/4 tsp Ground Ginger Root...

For two and three alarm Hemorroids add

1/4 tsp Ground Cumin to this mix.

Sip and enjoy the healing magic!

Coffee Enemas

My naturopathic nutritionist suggested I try coffee enemas for my hemorrhoid as in her school of thought the inflamed hemorrhoid vein is due the the liver dumping excess toxins it cannot cope with into lower circulation. This, along with juicing, has worked wonders for my problem.

Please study very carefully before using coffee enemas though or, preferably, seek the advice of a professional naturopath.

Cold Water Therapy

Use cold water therapy. Dip your privates in cold water for at least two minutes up to four times a day. Either fill the tub with just enough cold water to cover the down under, or find a roomy bucket to sit in. I tried a plastic sitz bath from Amazon but prefer the tub. A roomy bucket was really good but was cutting into my hips. Result: no pain and healing. Dry well afterwards and put up with the undressing necessary.

No cost involved. Namaste, Om

Collinsonia Root

My problem is so bad I came close to bleeding to death a few times this year. I've bled for 8 years, progressively getting worse each year. Have had to have blood transfusion, iron infusions, etc. They scheduled surgery for the end of January. I had two weeks to turn this around (the surgery is nothing short of barbaric and has high rate of risks and long-painful recovery).

A natural-doctor friend told me about Collinsonia Root. I read the comments on Amazon and they were quite impressive. For example, a guy had problems for 20 years, started taking Collinsonia and has had no problem for the last 20. I did a progressive experiment. I first tried ingesting 5 black peppercorns in the morning and at night. Within 24 hours the bleeding was 3/4 less. I added Collinsonia Root and Fargelin (a chinese herb) five days later. Both are said to strengthen the colon wall to prevent hemorrhoids and to shrink the tissue. I've been doing all three for three weeks and the tissue has shrunk. I had massive amounts so it will take time.

But I have had bowel movements with no blood at all...THAT is a miracle. The Collinsonia Root is inexpensive and you take one pill 1-3 times a day. The Fargelin is little round, black pills. You take 4 three times a day. My doctors words were, "I'm astonished by the results." Surgery has been canceled :)

Cooling Hemorrhoid Remedies  

Posted by Val (Summit) on 01/22/2014

Help! I've got these horrible hemorrhoids that won't heal. Oozy and painful. I do the sitz baths, witch hazel, etc, but here's the thing-- I can't do this at work, and I have to work. I sit at a computer most of the day and ow ow ow. I'm getting a crick in my back from leaning. Is there anything portable and concealable that will cool things down? I have arnica for pain, and it works some, but if I could cool them down I'd bear it better. Thanks for any suggestions. (We have one person who sits near the ladies room who feels the need to comment on how often one visits the rr and for how long, usually during lunch or in the breakroom--no privacy. Also, she's one of those folks who is immune to discipline/firing/etc so there's no sense having the boss speak to her--that would get the boss in trouble).

Look for a circular pillow with an empty center. Try to drink at least 2 cups of St. John's Wort tea and take some vitamin C (2x 1000mg) each day.

Val: A Magnetic Pad will help considerably. I sleep w/ one 16"x22" under my bottom every night. I get relief from Colon, Prostate, as well as Kidney inflammation. When you are out of your seat, make sure the M Pad doesn't come close to your computer memory particularly the hard drive as it will destroy the data (all depending on the strength of the magnets).

I agree with TimH. Keep all magnets away from the computer. I destroyed the hard drive of my laptop by wearing a magnetic bracelet! It moved something in the hardware beneath the keyboard. Nothing was recovered.

Sigh - growing older had its perks for a little while [driving, moving out, and so on] until a couple years later, when all those things nobody tells you about suddenly decide to throw you a surprise party all at once. One of the attendees: hems. Now, I'm only 23, fairly active, fairly fit, quite healthy in terms of my diet, but one random day the magic H word sprouted up like an unwanted guest that never knew when to leave.

I have absolutely no idea what I did the first time - after struggling for two weeks trying to figure out what it was, expensive prescription suppositories that took a few days but did, kind of sort of a little bit, seem to make it better. Then it went away.

This time, again a random occurrence, [conveniently coinciding with another monthly visitor .. Yippee?] nothing seemed to work. Not the suppositories. Not ACV, in or externally [though it provided temporary pain relief when applied topically, the first time only]. Hmmm, wait, hadn't I dusted my bottom with a talc-free powder last time? That seemed to help a lot. Okay, tried that again... Not so much. And this time was SO much more painful than the first. I was hobbling around the house! But before giving up, I decided to spoon some cornstarch into some TP, pack it on and leave it there. Ta da... Magic remedy. Okay, granted it doesn't fix the problem. But after a day, it was MUCH smaller. After three days, almost gone. And then back and forth, back and forth, didn't really want to disappear entirely.... but regardless, cornstarch HAS been at least an immediate relief in terms of comfort and being able to go about my day without wincing at every step and muscle contraction, and by wicking away the extra moisture, seems to do a LOT to keep the inflammation down.

Definitely, definitely try this first, and add alllll the other wonderful remedies into your regime too. Needless to say, I am sufficiently EVEN MORE terrified of pregnancy/childbirth [since this x393840 is now inevitable], and uncomfortable with the effect on my love life. I mean... Come on, seriously Mother Nature?

PS, here in Canada, I couldn't find Rutin, so I didn't get a chance to try that out :( any advice on where to find it?

As an update to my previous post: cornstarch DOES seem to be my 'cure' to the dreaded H-word. Any time I've felt it coming on, patting some cornstarch on seems to shrink it within a few hours, and keeping it up gets rid of it entirely in, at most, a few days. It recurred easily for a week or so, then went away and hasn't come back since. I've been patting some cornstarch on preventatively once every day or other day [to keep friction, heat, and moisture down, which seem to be aggravators], and it seems to be working like a charm. Huh.

I have tried every over the counter medication for hemroids. Needless to say none work, some even made them worse. The best thing I have found is to gently spray your behind with a squirt hygiene bottle, dry the area gently but thoroughly, then apply corn starch all around the hemroid. Sometimes I roll a few cotton balls in the corn starch and press right up against the hemroid. I will wear this all day or night. It has never failed to bring me comfort. I hope it works for you.

Dead Sea Mineral Mud

I developed roids after my second child. Mine are not brought on by constipation but from standing all day without rest or working out in a. M. Then doing cardio class in p. M. several days in a row.

Ice used to work if I caught it on day one. This time it didin't faze it & another appeared. I came to this site & tried the ACV which I love for occasional reflux. Nothing, another popped up. I tried the coconut oil as suppository(frozen & molded) as well externally.... Another popped up overnight. I did the peppercorns for 2 days..... Nothing but no adverse reaction. Bought witch hazel & witch hazel wipes.... No relief. Soaked in epsom salt, soaked in ACV... Now have 5 roids. Losing my mind with frustration at this point. Last night husband suggested putting some hydrocortisone 1% cream. Don't like to use pharma products but was desperate. Got 50% relief from the burning but did nothing for the swelling.

Remembered I had a 5 gallon bucket of Dead Sea Mineral Mud. Tightens my face & body & shrinks my pores so thought "why not, nothing else has helped". Well for me, this is working!!!!!! They have begun to shrink within the first hour & my mood has elevated dramatically!!!!! I have on a sanitary pad so my panties aren't muddied, but this is truly amazing.

Hope this helps someone else when you have tried all else.

Got my Dead Sea Mineral Mud 2 years ago on ebay.

Absolutely avoid spicy food and chocolate when you have hemorrhoids. They probably caused the hemorrhoids in the first place!

Constipation Remedies: i believe that overdoing 'rich' food like chocolate clogs the liver and this is a cause of piles.

May I point out that "piles" (hemorrhoids) are not in the liver, but in the rectal area, and that chronic constipation is one of the more common causes of hemorrhoids. The best way to correct constipation is through increasing fiber and fluid intake. Begin increasing your fiber intake by switching to whole grain breads and increasing the dark green leafy vegetables in your foods eaten. When your liver gets clogged or stops producing bile, you'll know that by your stools become more clay colored and you become jaundiced.

Just wanted to comment on a thread about how the liver relates to hemmoroids:

The absence of valves in the portal venous system can be contributory to hemorrhoids. One-third of rectal veins travel to the liver via the portal venous system. Significantly, if pressure in the portal vein rises from liver cirrhosis or parasites, increased blood volume and pressure may dilate rectal veins to the extent that internal and external hemorrhoids are created. It follows from this that any toxicity or impairment of the liver might be contributory to hemorrhoids.

If you find this hard to understand, imagine the venous blood traveling upward through the portal vein to the liver and the veins have no "back-flow" valve. Then imagine blood circulation through the liver is extremely slow or backed-up due to congestion. Guess what? The blood will back-flow to the rectal and anal area again. Spasms of the anal sphincter are said to be a frequent cause of external hemorrhoids because they may shut off the outflow of blood to the rectal veins.

Question for Suzi regarding the backpressure from the liver and it's relation to the venous system from the anus.

I've heard/read that red wine is good (no more than 2 glasses per day) for keeping healthy liver function. Any other dietary advice that will improve liver function and therefore prevent the localized blood pressure cause of piles/hemorrhoids?

thank you!

Thanks for the red wine suggestion, I will be happy to try that one out! :-) I have been having good results from taking a cup of strong chamomile tea liberally laced with honey every night. I read that some people had relief from hemorrhoids by eating more honey and also by drinking more chamomile tea, so I figured, why not combine the two? It's been giving me more comfortable morning ablutions. I highly recommend it.

hi, I've had piles about a year ago and didn't think that I'd be able to get rid of the problem. After a couple of weeks of eating vegetables and drinking lots of water, the small pile disappeared but left me an awful skin tag and an anal fissure. Once the fissure healed, which took months, I've had the skin tag surgically removed under general anasthetics. It took about 4 weeks for the swelling to go down. Now I can't even describe how happy I am that this problem is behind me. I didn't think one day, I would be one of these people reporting a fully successful treatment!

However, you still need to make note of a few tips:
1. DRINK lots of water (keeps everything soft)
2. Take FIBER SUPPLEMENTS (makes everything soft)
3. Try not to sit when you have a no 2. SQUAT instead. (there's no more pressure on your piles)

Good Luck.

Years back I realized one side of my anus was very swollen and bland to the touch. However, it was not painful at all. What I did was to change my diet immediately to eating mixed vegetables and tuna fish three times a day, and plenty of water. Nothing else. In a few days the condition totally disappeared. The only problem is that my anus remained with some small deformation. Consequently this makes it hard to wipe it clean after evacuation. So far I have controlled this to some extend including a fiber powder supplement on every meal. If anyone knows how to cure this remaining problem please email me omniversed at hotmail. Thanks

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.
