[YEA] I have been in excrutiating pain for five days due to several prolapsed thrombosed hemorrhoids (gotta love childbirth). Last night it got so bad that I couldn't sit, lay, stand, sleep, etc. -- despite heavy pain meds, sitz baths, Prep H, etc. (If it had been any other illness, I would have had my husband take me to the emergency room, but I was too embarassed. ) In desperation, I Googled "hemorrhoid home remedies" and came upon this website. I saw how many people swear that cayenne pepper tea cures hemorrhoids, so I thought what the heck, I'll try it.
I went to the kitchen and made myself a cup of cayenne pepper tea at around 3 am. I was worried that it would upset my stomach, but it didn't. The only thing I noticed was that it sort of burned my throat on the way down, but it wasn't anything painful. When I woke up this morning, I noticed my hemorroids weren't quite as painful but thought that it could just be a coincidence. Nevertheless, I drank another cup of cayenne pepper tea this morning. This afternoon, I drank another glass. Guess what? It's 10:15 pm and my hemorrhoids are completely GONE in less than 24 hours! I've never believed in homeopathic/herbal remedies before, but I am definitely now a convert. I don't know how or why, but the cayenne pepper worked. Try this before pursuing surgery!
