Apple Cider Vinegar   68  5

[YEA]  I have been suffering from partial bowel obstruction from adhesions due to a liposuction that went bad back in the 90's. I have suffered from severe pain, nausea and hemerroids due to the inability to fully cleanse myself out because of the blockage. This has been on going for the past 5 years. I would have an "episode" at least once a week, sometimes 2 and 3 times a week. The pain was unbearable and would literally take my breath away. Since I started taking one shot of ACV daily I have yet to have an "episode". I now have the best movements in years! I am completely amazed! Also, I suffer or should I say used to suffer from arthritis in my hips. I have absolutely no pain at all now and I know it is from the ACV because I haven't done anything else to remedy. I wish someone would have told me about this a long time ago. It is the simpliest thing in the world to do and it is all natural! God Bless Apple Cider Vinegar! If you haven't tried it, YOU SHOULD! Also, my complexion is glowing!

I wish to know if you were drinking the acv, Everyone else seems to be applying it to the infected areas.

Hi Carol from Clairmont, ACVinegar is safe and works both internal & external application. My answer would definitely be: If you have one impetigo lesion (sore) use only on that one lesion; however, if it's accompanied by a sore throat, I would still use it externally on the one lesion, but I would also be drinking it for the sore throat.

As an alternative to ACV, I have always used witch hazel distillate water. It's very gentle, and you can't use too much of it. I actually use witch hazel as a toner on my face! Put a portion of witch hazel in the refrigerator. Soak a cotton ball or pad with the cold witch hazel and apply to the hemorrhoids. It shrinks them immediately. I'm a holistic health educator, and so I'm always looking for great remedies. This one is so simple, gentle, effective. Beware: witch hazels in the drug store may have alcohol in them. Be sure to buy one that does NOT contain alcohol. Witch hazel distillate water is best.

[YEA]  Apple cider vinegar has pretty much cured my hemorrhoids! I started last Thurs and it is now Wed and they are almost gone. The itching and burning has subsided and they just aren't there anymore! This remedy will burn like crazy the first few days, but stick with it and you will have amazing results. I have tried everything and have been suffering for the last 4 months with severe pain and itching. I am so happy I found this site and this suggestion because I was spending lots of $$ on anything and everything that claimed it could cure or help hemorrhoids. The apple cider vinegar was 99 cents...and really worked!!!

[YEA]  The Apple Cider Vinegar worked for me. After having my baby, I could barely sit! I put all-natural ACV on a cotton ball and applied it 2-3 times a day and, although it burned, it shrunk the tissues and made life bearable in 2 days. I will continue to use it until they are almost gone. Thanks to all who offered this advice - ACV really works! I also used Vicks Vapo-Rub for pain after applying the ACV. The combo of the 2 worked well. Good luck!

[YEA]  I would not say that the acv has cured my hemorrhoids but has greatly diminished my discomfort. *** I do have a question though. Does ACV in pill format deliver the same health benefit as ACV in the Liquid unpasteruized format. Thx

I would not trust any suppliments since they are not inspected by the FDA and you never know what you are buying. A study showed that over 80% of supplements have very little or NONE of what it claimed to have! At least when you take it straight from the bottle you KNOW exzactly how much you are getting and what you are getting.

[NAY]  After reading several statements on your website regarding ACV & hemorrhoids, I tried it. After all, I drink the stuff and I truly believe in it's healing properties. However, I applied the ACV using a q-tip to the area where I had the hemorrhoids and I developed a very painful rash on the inner part of my buttocks, both sides! I wouldn't recommend it for hemorrhoid treatment, but it is good stuff otherwise!

[YEA]  As a secretary I sit all day. Today my hemorrhoids started acting up. They weren't really enlarged. Just stinging and itching. Came to this site to see what I could find and it suggested ACV. I have a bottle of ACV, honey, and water on my desk that I drink throughout the day. I took it to the restroom, soaked a napkin, and applied it to the sore area holding it there for a minute. The relief was instant. It felt so good I wished I could just leave it on it. Now that I'm back at my desk, there is still no burning or itching.

[YEA]  I can't believe it, I had never suffered with a bad case of hemorrhoids before (I had them after my children were born but they quickly went away) and of course they came at a time when we have no medical insurance. I have suffered with a bad case for over a month now and I was finally desperate for some relief. I found your web site and although I was skeptical I was willing to try just about anything for the pain. I dabbed the area with apple cider vinegar and the pain and itch have already subsided immensely. Thank You Thank You Thank You!

[YEA]   "I couldn't believe it. My wife was in tears today over her hemorrhoid. The last time hers flared up she had to go the ER and they cut it. Well I read the your comments on the ACV, and WOW, and I mean WOW it really works. There was an immediate relief, and the size went down. This is amazing, Thanks for the info...

[YEA]  I have had itching hemorrhoids on two separate occasions (years in between). Each time, I put some ACV on a cotton ball and dabbed the affected area. Boy, did it burn. But the itching went away and never came back. Awesome!

Foods to avoid if you want to cure your hemorroids. No Pepper of any kind. No walnuts. No chocolate. No Meats, fish, chicken. No eggs. I believe that hemoroids might be some kind of parrasite that lives in your boby and enjoys eating those kinds of foods. I don't think much research has been done on it...I mean common, would you volunteer to push on the toilet to see if that is how you get hemorroids? Or would you volunteer to sit on cold cement. The truth is that these experiments have never been done and therefore we can conclude that those reasons are just theories.

[YEA]  vinegar soothes the itching and burning of hemorrhoids. Just take a cotton ball and dab the affected area with full strength apple cider vinegar! Caution: some people find the full strength solution stings. If this happens to you, just dilute the vinegar half and half with water.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe   1  0

[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]   "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!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Vitamin E   1  0   

Posted by Jan In Alabama (Huntsville, Al Usa) on 06/25/2012

[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!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Zinc Oxide   1  0

[YEA]  IMPORTANT FOR INTERNAL HEMORRHOIDS.

First time my hemorrhoids started 2 months ago, because of constipation. Constipation resulted in fissure and blood. Then perhaps because of baktery invasion, constantly I had lots of mucus, it itched badly. I washed with soap very often, but it became worse by time(a month). I found your site and applied apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball at first. It became better, mucus and itching reduced by half, 1 week passed, but it stopped at that point and never improved. I thought my hem was an internal one and cotton ball was shallow. So I found a nose spray which is smooth, emptied it and filled with ACV, applied a zinc oxide cream to the tip, injected it to my hole and sprayed it 3 times. I repeated it 3 times a day first days. Result was very effective, after 2 days there was no mucus and itching any more. Now after 2 weeks I am almost completely cured, external part has almost disappeared, now still I am applying it once a day, especially after stooling.

IMPORTANT: apply some zinc oxide cream (baby cream) to the tip of your nose spray before inserting, otherwise you may hurt your hemorrhoids further.

Also, it is important to stool at least once in 24 hours even if you don't feel the urge, when you go to toilet and sit as muslim way (foots on toilet, and knees almost touching your chest) and wait a little, stool comes by itself easily.

Arnica   1  0   

Posted by Sally (Saint James City, Fl-florida) on 02/20/2013

[YEA]  I had 2 large hemoroids. I inserted garlic at bedtime the first night and didn't notice any improvement. The second night I soaked a cotton ball in ACV and kept that applied to the area while sleeping. It relieved the itching but didn't reduce the size. The third day I tried Arnica Gel. Its a gel I had purchased after facial surgery to reduce pain, swelling and bruising. I have been applying that externally 3 times a day for the last 2 days, one hemoroid is completely gone and the other is almost gone. The active ingredient in the gel is 7% Arnica Montana. There is also an Arnica Montana supplement I took for my facial surgery to reduce swelling and bruising. I havent tried that for hemoroids, just mentioning it since its available in more forms than just topical.
