Have you tried going COMPLETELY OFF sugar and wheats for hemorrhoids? It helped me. And rather quickly too.

I've had piles that come and go and usually are more present after drinking beer. They give me no pain. I found that after using a probiotic capsule as a suppository, the swelling is reduced and even gone. I also, keep myself hydrated during the day and drink green tea.

hello everyone, alot of very intresting comments and remedies, however, the way I understans it is, we have to live a perfectly good life style, good balanced diet full of fiber and plenty of liquids, and that is a remedy not only to hemorhoids but to a long ilness free life...... We have an old saying "stomach is the house of disease" not sure how else to put that.... By having a clean healthy stomach you have a clean healthy body... adding on, things I found great to have daily or at least several times a week that will help you have clean stomach, vegies like garlic, onions and high fibre content foods such as dried figs, dates... etc, and last Camel Milk "best of all", it is a great laxative, but it also have ingredients that help prevent cancer and tastes good aswell.....

wish everyone good luck and good health

Avoid garlic, eggplant. Never use toilet paper again to wipe yourself, only wash your self with warm water, toilet paper will irritate your anus and can provoke inflamation of the tissue. watermelon must be consumed as much as possible.

Hey guys,

I am of Indian origin and have inherited hemorrhoids from both my mom's and dad's side of the family. I should be so lucky - not!

But fortunately enough, my Grandmother - who always seems to have home remedies for minor ailments - let me into the secret of living a hemorrhoid-free-life.

She always said the worst offenders are chicken, chicken egg and beef, which turn out to be spot on for me! You could still eat the other types of meat such as - pork, lamb, duck, turkey, etc. In an instance that you have a bout of hemorrhoids as you were unable to steer away from chicken, chicken egg or beef, try to eat duck eggs with whole mustards in them. It works true wonders!

I have to say at times I am just too gluttonous to be able to completely eliminate the hemorrhoid offenders and subsequently I end up losing blood when I empty my bowels. In such instances I make a duck egg omelet for a couple of days and viola! I am completely free of hemorrhoids. This method is tried and tested on my mom, dad, uncles, aunties and a whole lot of family friends. Give it a try!

Duck egg omelet recipe:

Beat the egg and a pinch of salt in a glass.

Pour a teaspoon of oil (any oil will do) into a hot pan.

When the oil is hot, add a teaspoon full of mustard - be warned that mustard will pop and splutter like pop corn. So once you add the mustard to the oil just close the pan with a lid.

Wait for the popping to subside and pour in the omelet and cook the egg thoroughly.

And you are well on your way to clearing those nasty hemorrhoids. Remember: keep away from chicken, chicken egg and beef and eat loads of vegetables and green leaves to enable easier bowel movement.

Good luck guys!

I have hemorrhoids for about year and had to face the worst when I traveled to my home country which required a 22 hr air journey. I used all the tricks in the bag - from using coconut oil to taking metamucil ( fiber ) - Finally following has worked for me and I would like to share this as this can be of help to many others;

Fundamental to curing or at least' getting a temporary relief is to thin your stool /feces and at the same time not to have constipation.This needs eating /drinking following and avoiding regular food.

Morning I would start my day with drinking a glass of water and then Papaya ( eating about a lb ) - Just peel it , remove seeds and cut into small pieces and eat - simple.

Next I would eat some raisin bran in milk ( post make ) - try not to eat all the raisins.just avoid some of them if not all. Have a glass of water againcThis is your breakfast - if you feel hungry in between - have some more?
of the same stuff.

Be sure to drink at least
2-3 glasses of water in between. this is very important

Lunch - Lightly fried mixed vegetables - about a bowl and have V8 Veg soup - hot - and Water again.

Have some Figs ( sunmaid? ) 3-4 inbetween whenever you feel hungry in between - follow everything you eat with water - you need to drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water

repeat the same stuff for your dinner as well - Green vegies - boiled or fried in oil are good - snap peas , softs pears , no carrots , no juices absolutely no hard food. anything you feel hard is not good -

As I said - Water is the key and also do not sit on chair - you may be either lying down on bed or walking - but absolutely no chair / sofa

This will give you slurry kind of feces next day and you 'll be surprised to see the results in 2 days flat - atleast it worked for me? when nothing was working for past 40 days and I was about to give in for sigmoidoscopy to check the extent of damage and subsequent surgery

Good Luck and remember in short >>>>? lots of water papya raisin bran ( post make ) soft veggies can put you back on your feet.

I didn't get hemorrhoids until after giving birth and I suffer terribly from them. I have yet to find a great cure but will try some of these things. I have found though that having a tsp of fiber powder (not the pills...they don't work) in the morning and at night and eating a banana once a day makes your stool soft, and I can still eat meat and all that stuff your not supposed to. Makes all things come out a lot easier but you have to take your time going. I'm not cured..they come back when I forget to take the fiber but it is a relief and allows you to eat the things you want for the most part..at least for me.

Juice 1 glass of beet roots a day and drink it all down. Maybe tough to stomach so mix it with carrot juice or something. Those nasties will be gone in a week.

Eat a bowl of high fiber cereal 1-2 times per day. Your hemorrhoids will go away in a couple days.

I tried radishes and turnips for my serious medical problem. And it really works, at 64 years old....I had a serious hemorrhoidal problem. What did radishes and turnips cure ? Well it really cured my problem of humorist and constipation...... :)) color me Happy :)) A fellow employee had the same problem and told me after nothing, my remedy fixed his same problem.

But to fix it you have to do it right.

1.you have have to have both of these veggies at emm, lunch and dinner.

2. Do not drink orange juice, but juices that have vitamin'c' without the acid in orange juice. NO acidic drinks or foods. you can get vitamin 'C' and potassium in pomegranate juice with out acids........

3. do not eat junk foods and beef, the garbage meat..........

This will give your body and intestines a good cleaning - end to end.

40 years ago, an old fashioned family doctor gave me the quick cure for hemorrhoid inflammatory pain. It worked quickly then as it still does. The old fashioned enema immediately cleans out the lower colon of inflammatory producing irritants. The cure includes using a plain mild saline solution with no added chemicals. A popular brand name company sells economical one-time usage, plastic squeeze bottle plain enemas, already filled and ready to use at many chain drugstores. Simply just follow the instructions that comes in the box. Afterward, take a natural stool softener. Constipation can bring on swelling so always take immediate stool softening measures to avoid the painful swelling attacks.

My naturopathic nutritionist suggested I try coffee enemas for my hemorrhoid as in her school of thought the inflamed hemorrhoid vein is due the the liver dumping excess toxins it cannot cope with into lower circulation. This, along with juicing, has worked wonders for my problem.

Please study very carefully before using coffee enemas though or, preferably, seek the advice of a professional naturopath.

For Hemorrhoids - Use 1 part peppermint oil with 3 parts of coconut oil and apply to the area. That has always helped me in healing hemorrhoids in a night.

Research the power of Essential Oils! I use them for many homeopathic remedies. And especially Aromatherapy.

For Hemorrhoids: create a sitzbath with nice warm-hot water, add 3 drops lavender oil, 2 drops lemon oil, and 2 chamomile... Aaahhh, soothing, cooling, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory. etc.

Essential oils are amazing ... please make sure you are using 100% pure essential oils...

I have found the holy grail of hemorrhoid treatment that worked for me almost immediately...I thought I would never be free, ..I even had a colonoscopy, & the well known Dr.who took great pride in being smarter than me about these things didn't even give any solution than more fiber & water! But I've discovered essential oils of myrrh & cypress with coconut or olive oil as carrier oils. The holy grail I found first though, was Ma Ying Long, an award winning solution for hemy over in China.
