I am pregnant and had gotten hemmoroids, tried everything otc . After 12 hours of no relief, I ended up in the ER. After some pricey prescription, I finally got relief but a few days later they were back and bigger than ever :(

I looked on earth clinic and tried the cayenne pepper tea... right before bed. I woke up at 3 am and the newest addition was gone!! Better relief than the medication and worked much faster!! I highly recommend.

(This is going to be a little graphic)

I had hemorrhoids for about two years. Sometimes they shrunk, sometimes they grew, but they were always there.

I initially tried the cotton ball apple cider vinegar technique for a couple days, and that helped a lot on the first day. They shrunk tremendously, but I still could feel the bigger ones when I stuck my finger up there. They were smaller than they were, but still bulging and very present. I did the apple cider technique twice a day for three days, but saw no real improvement past the first day, and ended up giving up on it. Hurt like crazy but gave no real results.

As a last ditch effort I ordered some 500mg cayenne tablets, which I read were also helpful for hems. I started taking one tablet every morning for the past 5 days, and haven't really examined the inside of my rectum since- I guess I kind of expected the cayenne not to work and was just taking it for the loads of other benefits. Today in the shower I decided to check again, not expecting it to be much better, but man was I pleasantly surprised.

I used to feel the same few hems which felt like internal skin tags, one that was about 50% bigger and longer than the others. This time I could find none of them. I really got in there because I couldn't believe they were gone, and all I could feel was a sort of scab-like texture where the hemorrhoids used to be. I assume they are truly scabs of some sort that are still continuing to heal the affected area. I am going to continue taking the cayenne pepper tablets, and hopefully I'll have a completely smooth passageway soon.

I would highly suggest trying cayenne pepper, I ordered mine off Amazon. Go with a kosher brand. Maybe try the apple cider vinegar initially too, as I cannot discount the fact that it did shrink them the first time and perhaps continued to work over time.

I just started drinking cayenne pepper in tomato juice and am noticing my hemmoroids/skin tags are shrinking! I read on a cayenne pepper website that it helps with this condition and it seems to be true! :) There are many other benefits to cayenne pepper as well, some are here on Earth Clinic.

I had just finished a course of antibiotics which I really hate taking, and I had taken probiotics 2-3 a day but I was told you should triple it. Anyhow I had the worse case of hemorrhoid afterwards, first time for me. I put some cayenne mixed with virgin coconut oil and put it on it are of the hemorrhoids it really burned for awhile then felt fine.

Anyone suffering from hemorrhoids will find relief by drinking cayenne pepper in warm water. If you GOOGLE the healing benefits of cayenne, you will see this is brilliant at healing this issue. Try 1/3 a TEAspoon in a cup of warm water, add lemon for flavor if you like. Let your mouth feel the heat as it activates salivary glands to aid in digestion. Drink twice a day.

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!

Cayenne for hemorrhoids.

I bought a book about the coconut cures, it tells in the book that coconut oil and cayenne powder mix equal parts to make a poultice. And apply to the affected area followed a coat of coconut oil several times throughout the day to speed healing it stop itching and it truly works. Then take 100 mg of grape seed extract and a capsule of cayenne pepper with each meal till the hemorrhoids regress. I didnt know about cayenne pepper capsule thought it comes only in powder so I went online and found out about the healing cures of cayenne, my hemorrhoids was so severe that i was almost make an appt with my doctor but scared of surgery, i am healed no ibs or itchy butt syndrome, it works and i believed cayenne, i am taking a capsule of cayenne after breakfast meal everyday i feel good.

Cayenne pepper rememdies: cayenne pepper foot baths will completely cure bad feet, although if you continue to work on hard floors the cure might need to be repeated every so often. Also, cayenne pepper does wonders on hemorrhoids when mixed with an otc ointment (not vaseline). Go very light on this one and be ready to wash it off yourself if you can't stand the burning. I've also tried cayenne pepper in a vaseline salve that I made on the cookstove that completely cured the bursitis in my shoulder.

Hemorrhoids or piles is something genetic in our family. My paternal grandmother had it, my father, my uncles and aunts, all then of them, had it. In family reunions, hemorrhoids was an intimate, humorous conversation piece among them. Years later, eight of us brothers and sisters would have it too. Two of my brothers underwent painful operations to remove their hemorrhoids. I thought, soon I'd be going through the same ordeal too as I was already bleeding everytime I do my morning rituals. That's when I read about cayenne pepper. I took 3 capsules with meals everyday for three months in 2002. Miracle of miracles, my hemorrhoids disappeared...vanished without a trace. For five years now. I only stopped taking it when I was diagnosed for hyperthyroid. After getting into this website, I think I'll go back to taking cayenne pepper again especially because I am hypertensive and has a high cholesterol nowadays. Will get in touch again after a few weeks. Thanks for a very helpful and inspiring forum like this.
