My husband developed really bad hemorrhoid recently. We tried every remedy I'd find on earthclinic, but nothing seems to work. It lasted for almost a month!
One day I searched earthclinic again and noticed the posts for castor oil. I bought organic, food grade oil and he started using it. We were careful, applying a couple of drops each time, 3 times a day. It shrank the hemorrhoid greatly pretty fast, in a half of the day the pain was less and the size became much smaller, it worked like a miracle. In a day the shrank piece fell off. We were shocked!!! I talked to the doctor, she said that it is possible...Because that piece fell off he had some blood, we healed the wound with neosporin, just applied it several times a day. Finally our suffering stopped!!! After a very short time everything was over!
I tried using castor oil for my hemorrhoid. Got relief from the very first application, as I was unable to bend down to pick up anything. It's been 8 days, I am still applying once after shower, as a tiny bit of it has remained, but I can't feel it's there, while I walk, run or whatever I do.
After reading that it's a laxative, I have taken a tea spoon internally as well empty stomach in the morning. It is an excellent remedy to clear my intestines, and heal the hemorrhoids. Thank you!!

Yes I used castor oil for Hemorrhoids it works very fine. now no pain and healing on the anus area.. I strongly recommend to all people in work very fine..
I suffer from hemorrhoids once a month for a week, and usually just grit my teeth and bear it. But this month was particularly painful. So, I came onto Earth clinic for a remedy and opted for castor oil as this person describes - as mini packs during the day and at night during sleep.
I also employed the 6 inch step and ate a bit more fiber in the form of flaxseed. But I always up my fiber around this time of the month anyway, but it doesn't help much tbh.
There was a 80% improvement in 2 days! I couldn't believe it. I think it was the castor oil and 6 inch step.
The other thing is that I added sauerkraut to my breakfast these last 2 days too. I think fermented foods are amazing for intestinal health no matter what, so I'll carry on with that. Not sure if that contributed to my healing to quickly, but I'm sure it didn't hurt.
Thanks for such an amazing site!
I just tried the castor oil for my hemorrhoids, and within 2 hours, the anal tissue has completely shrunk and withdrawn back inside (it was inflamed and swollen). I still have pain, so I am looking forward to seeing how fast it completely heals. I am amazed that I did not know this sooner. I just gave birth 5 days ago and have been suffering with hemorrhoids caused by labor.
All I did was apply the castor oil on a square cotton pad and press it onto the area and leave it there. I will continue applying it and hopefully I am hemorrhoid free soon.
On another note, I also take magnesium and blackstrap molasses daily to prevent constipation. It is a miracle cure for anyone suffering from hemorrhoids and/or constipation because it causes you to become regular and softens the stool naturally.
My hemorroids have flared up in the past and gone down with no special treatment. However not this time... They flared with a vegence and the pain with sitting, standing, walking was unbearable. I tried externally applying apple cider vinegar but that made them worse as well as causing bleeding and the pain was NOT alleviated. ( I wish it would have worked... Sigh). Anyway I read thru the hemorroid remedies here on Earth Clinic as I did not want to go the surgery route that my sister did. She was in ALOT of pain afterward and is still having some problems. Anyway I noted a couple people here on the site had relief from castor oil. I happened to have a bottle of castor oil on the shelf and thus decided to give it a try. Well it is working... my pain level has considerably decreased.
What I did was to use Hexane Free and Paraben Free Cold pressed and cold processed castor oil and exfoliating cotton round cotton pads (yep the cheap ones you find in the make up aisle). I placed several drops of castor oil on the pad and then placed the pad against those hemorrohoids. I left the pad in place and went about my day. Every time I had to use the bathroom I replaced the pad. I also sleep with a pad in place. I feel so much better!!
I also have been taking sitz baths with only warm water three times a day. I sit in the sitz bath 20 minutes each time.
For the last few years I believe I have hemorrhoids (some swelling) and constant itching. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) was a short-term relief but , the itching and irritation that would follow would soon come back. I've tried different oils and other solutions.. Coconut, olive, hydrogen peroxide, witch hazel, calendula creams... There would be some relief and not for long. So, I finally decided to try multiple remedies.. For the last couple of days I've taken 500 mg of rutin which seems like a lot and may not continue since it seems to make me feel a bit queasy, plus 5 black whole peppercorns twice a day. I've also been applying castor oil two or three times a day and have felt a marked improvement.
I think castor oil is making a huge difference. The swelling and itching has almost entirely subsided and I feel I'm on the verge of a complete recovery. I'm so grateful to have access to this site and appreciate finding natural and least invasive treatments for many conditions that may otherwise be chronic. Thank you Earthclinic and all contributors!
My hemorrhoids flared up when I went on a diet and didn't introduce myself to a high-fiber diet slowly; my digestive system also seemed to have major issues especially with high fiber yogurt, which sent me to the bathroom frequently with burning diarrhea. I stopped eating the yogurt and the burning stopped, but the hemorrhoids persist.
I, like most others, have tried many things to control the pain and bleeding of hemorrhoids, with little success. OTC, sitz baths... none of it was giving me much, if any, relief.
After reading through all the posts on this site, I decided to first try apple cider vinegar; both externally and taking orally. Sadly, it has not helped me.
I then decided to try a Castor Oil pack last night. This morning I had the most comfortable BM I've had in a couple of months. I started getting a little throbbing from sitting a couple hours later; did another pack and felt relief in a matter of minutes. I'm not cured yet, but so far Castor Oil has helped me where nothing else I'd tried to date has.
Fast Hemmorrhoid cure
When I had babies it really brought on the hemmorrhoids. I tried creams, pads, espom salt soaks, sitting on pillows. I had to suffer 'til it went away. Nothing helped. Years later I was using the Edgar Cayce castor oil felt pad method on my abdomen for another issue and on a whim decided to try it on my hemmorrhoids. It worked! Gone in 20 minutes. This is what I do now when I occaisonally get hemmorrhoids. The ticket is not to get them in the first place... But childbirth.... Fiber dosen't fix that! Ha Ha
Treatment: Tear one sheet of toilet paper off the roll. Fold it in half and then half again into a small square.
Open the bottle of caster oil and set on a stable surface. Unfold the toilet paper to half open. Hold the paper on the top of the open bottle and hold them together and tip the bottle on to the paper so you can carefully pour about 1/4 tsp on to the paper. (be careful not to get on your clothes or carpet as it can stain)
Apply the paper directly to the hemmorrhoid, between your bums. Pull up your pants and go about your business.
The next time you sit on the toilet the paper should fall out in to the toilet, or take it out yourself. If the hemmorrhoid is not gone with the first treatment, repeat until it is. I have had results as fast as twenty minutes!
My 83 year young mother recently had a hip replacement. After a few days she told me she had hemmorrhoids. I said I have a treatment for that, why didn't you tell me? I did the above and handed her the paper that she applied to the hemmorrhoid while laying in bed. Her next trip to the toilet she said it was all gone! The next day I asked her if she needed another treatment and she said it never came back and she was so surprised.
I wish I had this when I had my babies. I know this will help a lot of people.
I had severe piles (internal) & haemorrhoids (external). Visit to doctor who gave some creams & advised surgery if the haemorrhoids didnt shrink. Read about castor oil and tried it as last resort as I didn't fancy the idea of surgery. A friend of mine who had piles surgery discovered he couldnt control his bowels well sometime after surgery.
Anyway, what i did was to coat the rear area, especially the inflamed tissues with castor oil twice a day after visiting the bathroom. Amazingly, after a couple of days, the area went back to normal and I did not have to go back to the doctor.
I will try castor oil for other various problems that I read about on earthclinic. Castor oil rocks!
Use Castor Oil to cure hemorrhoid. Make small CASTOR OIL PACK. You can use even cotton ball saturated with Castor Oil. Lie down and apply it to the hemorrhoid. You can walk with it if you have to. It brings very fast relive and swollen hemorrhoid shrinks fast.
