Hi! May I share with you an alternative to a olive oil dropper method for anal fissures.
I have been making my own olive oil supposutories using a rounded ice cube tray .. the smallest ones in the middle.
- Fill each one with olive oil and freeze for several hours until solidified.
- Removing them is easiest if it's a bendy tray .. push them out onto a plate and keep in a freezer bag.
I pop one in every night and sometimes after a bowel movement. My fissure has healed and I no longer need stool softeners...the oil does it all!
I find this method easiest and the cool feeling when inserted is wonderful.
Obviously be quick to insert before they melt .. but they go up so easily.. bliss!
Why haven't I ever heard of olive oil to help with this darn suffering that I've had for the last few years. I'm 40 years old and suffer from chronic back and neck pain and I truly wanted to shoot myself with this added discomfort. I shot the olive oil up with an enema pump and if feels better already. Please make this be the end of this fissure pain this is so brutal I could only imagine how bad things get when I reach 70.
I had fissure & hemorrhoid for about 4 weeks. As one of the contributor on this site said, it felt like I was pooping blades. Horrible pain. By the end of the 4th week I was at the fag end of my hopes for cure. This could have easily been a emergency or surgery situation by prevailing practices. But I firmly believe in natural cures. So I was surfing the web and bumped into this site.
I first thought it was hemorrhoid only. I tried out quite a few treatments mentioned on this site and some other. Didn't work. But from my symptoms, when my doctor friend told me over the phone that I had fissure as well, I searched for fissure treatment on this site. I came across extra virgin organic Olive oil treatment.
Boy it worked wonders for me. I started with oral intake that didn't do much for me. But as I started generously putting it deep inside the rear end with a dropper 3-4 time a day, it gave me immediate relief. The pain started subsiding rapidly. It took about 3 days to cure 80%. And about 7 days to fully recover. I still kept putting it at least once before the bedtime for a few more days so that it didn't recur. In the mean time I had ordered fully ozonated Olive oil. But by the time it arrived from amazon, I was almost cured.
From other mentions here, my guess is any healing oil like, castor or vitamin E should also work. But make sure you keep the anal passage(from deep inside) oiled all the time until it heals.
I am so grateful to the site owner and everyone contributing on this site. I had to share my experience as well for others to benefit. Please keep it up.
I currently fissure, had H for over 30 yrs with no real issues, about 6 months ago pain started, thought it was my H, after colon test now at 58 have a fissure. I have prescription for antibiotics and anal cream now taken 5 days, after completion of antibiotics, pain back not as bad , but still cannot sit , drive etc. normally hurts only after BM, hurt all day finally went to sleep after sitz bath and apply cream, within 2 hours woke up in severe pain, found this site.
1. Drink 3 tablespoon of olive oil,
2. (Did not have Manuka honey; used organic honey ..next use enema bottle and mixed 1/2 tablespoon of Manuka Honey (100% pure) with about a 1/2 teaspoon of Virgin Coconut Oil and a splash of Aloe Vera juice. Once it was well mixed I took as much of it as I could get into the syringe (which I had first coated the outside end of the syringe with coconut oil). Had a BM immediately, then 3 more, to be honest pain is gone, I thought the mix was suppose to stay, so I mixed a second batch, imnediately 2 BM, little to no pain.
3. Clean area with witch hazel in baby wipe, then applied organic coconut oil to rectum, resting comfortable at this time.
what I learned:
1. I will take1-2 tablespoon organic olive oil at bedtime
2. Clean area with baby wipes soak in witch hazel and then apply organic coconut oil.
3. Will use honey mixture as enema as needed
My girlfriend felt I should throw in my two cents, relating how we treated my elderly mother for what could be called "anal fissures."
She had been in the hospital for two weeks and after eating their food, came back with all sorts of complications. They had given her a salve for treating sores around her rectal area. It simply didn't work!
Our diet, including hers, normally includes organic, extra virgin olive oil, as part of the dressing used on large salads we consume, daily. Her returning to that diet, I'm going to assume addressed the initial cause of the rectal inflamation.
However, the sores were horrendous in their behavior! Fearing infection, by the end of the second day of using their prescribed "ointment, " we fell back on old remedy we've know of, for decades: Fully Ozonated Olive Oil. We keep some in our First Aid Kit and use it quite regularly for conditions ranging from fungal infections, burns, to acne.
Once we applied it, things were calmed in a day. Healing started taking place on the second day of application and the third saw all of the lesions closed. There was no more bleeding by the end of the second day. It was applied every time she took a bowel movement, once in the morning and before sleep.
An older person's immune system is not what it used to be and one must be careful in addressing wounds quickly.
In this case, I assume it was the organic olive oil in her diet and the application of the organic, ozonated extra virgin olive oil that stopped the cause of the wounds and allowed them to heal, by killing off infection.
In talking to the owner of the bodega from where we buy it, he emphasizes the oil from which it is made should be organic, to be free of insecticides, extra virgin, to assure maximum penetration (fine oils) and the ozone used, free of any Nitrogen Oxides, which make Nitric Acid when coming in contact with any water in the oil being treated.
So care should be taken in your choice of ozonated olive oil. What we have been buying is imported. However, my Sister has lately been buying from a little firm advertizing on Craigslist, in Los Angeles and claims it looks and works identically to the imported stuff.
Be sure it's the fully ozonated (fully saturated with ozone). If you like a milder form, then dilute it in olive oil, to your liking. That's the way we do it.
I hope this helps any who can use it. Its effects on my mother impressed my girlfriend to the point, she's asked me to relate this. From where I stand, that's a decent endorsement!
This advice for olive oil as well as the changing leg position during BM saved me from a terrible situation. I had tried many things for anal fissure. The olive oil, amazing healing gift from nature.
I tried everything on the remedy page here (and then some) during more than 10 years of recurring anal fissure bleeding and pain. Some remedies worked partially and temporarily and some not at all. Probably the best of those already listed here was botox, but that only worked 90% or so for about a year.
The first thing that has worked perfectly in the long run is fully ozonated olive oil applied to the affected area and further inside. I've been six months without any bleeding or pain even after the occasional constipation/hard stool. The ozonated oil (which is a thick white paste) feels good as it's working, and the fissure site healed up completely within a couple of days and stayed that way. In addition the muscle has relaxed and become much looser. I tried making my own oil with an ozonator, but that took over a week and nearly burned out the motor. I found it easier to buy premade fully ozonated olive oil online. I hope others will find the same total relief I have found.
Thanks for this remedy. Olive oil cured both my chronic constipation and chronic fissures. 13 years of suffering gone in 2 days. I followed your advice excatly and I am perfectly fine and pain free, bleeding free. Thanks a bunch. God bless you. :)
Olive oil has really worked for me also...
I injected about 3-4mm of pure olive oil inside anus before bowel movements. It lubricates the anus and makes stool pass easily. Although inject olive oil after bowel movements and before sleeping helps the skin to heal very. very fast....
I hope it helps others.
My mother discovered that drinking a shot of olive oil cured her constipation and fissures that she had suffered with for years.
Olive Oil Worked for Anal Fissure. Really worked for me! Much better than those steroid cream I used before.
I heard some Muslim bloggers recommend extra virgin olive oil for anal fissures because supposedly in the Muslim Holy Koran book (nope I'm not Muslim), the prophet Mohamed recommended something from the "olive tree" to cure anal fissure. (subject to interpretation, but these bloggers say he meant olive oil).
1) I took 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil before bedtime.
2) Made sure that I chewed food well (especially if meat) instead of just "wolfing" down my food as usual; which I read also causes constipation.
Cured BOTH my constipation and anal fissure! Not only am I cured, but I'm now "regular" in the bathroom every morning with ease!
I've since reduced to 1 tablespoon a day (primarily because of the expense of extra virgin olive oil) and still have no problem in the bathroom...
But for immediate effects if you have a problem now, I'd probably start with a lot (3 to 4 tablespoons at bedtime) since olive oil is probably completely safe anyway (since its a common food and not 'medicine').
