Hi there, I was suffering from an external pile last week. The pain was so bad I couldn't walk properly and I had to pretend that my back was sore. What I did was I mixed 4mls if frankincense oil and 4mls of Myrrh Essential oil into 300grs of raw unfiltered extra virgin coconut oil. I would soak some soft tissue in the mixture and sit it between my bum cheeks. Within 15 minutes of my first application the pain was almost non existent. I couldn't believe it. I did this twice a day for a week and now I'm cured. I'm sure if one had bleeding and internal piles, using a enema and throwing a bit of cayenne pepper on your food would do wonders. Hope this helps all.

Hi There, I wanted to add to the Hemorrhoids section. I have been applying Tea Tree Oil to my hemorrhoid, and it instantly cools and relieves the pain. I'm not sure if it actually helps to shrink the rhoid, but for pain control, I highly recommend.

I had learned about using Tea Tree Oil to help control and heal pain on a boil I had, so I thought it couldn't hurt to try it on my hemorrhoid.

Hope this helps someone else. thanks, jenn

I really enjoy EC & have used many of the remedies it contains. A few weeks ago I had a rare bout of constipation. When I finally did have a movement, it felt like I was passing broken glass. It took considerable effort (and tears) , but I was finally successful.

The problem is that now I have a bleeding hemorrhoid since that day. I am starting my 4th week of trying almost all of the remedies on this site for this ailment with no success or relief. It has gotten so bad the past 3 days that I can't sleep. Even OTC pain relievers have no effect on the pain. I have taken B6 & Rutin for 2 weeks; no effect. Last night, 6/28/10 I became desperate & took my bottle of tea tree oil & applied several drops to my finger tip & gently messaged it into the hemorrhoid & surrounding area. At first I felt nothing. In about 3 minutes I felt a warming sensation & possibly a little less pain.

I began watching TV & about ten minutes later I realized that I was actually sitting on the couch & I didn't have any pain. I was able to sleep from midnight to 10am this morning. When I arose from bed, no pain. About an hour later I had another BM. I wish I could say it was pain free, but it was NOT! This time I only had a slight trace of Blood. After I cleaned up I reapplied the tea tree oil & had to wait about 10 minutes & the pain subsided. In fact I went out & cut the grass! As I am writing this I am sitting on a regular chair without the dough nut!

I don't know if the tea tree oil will cure my hemorrhoid or not, but it made it much more bearable & I was able to sleep. Tea tree oil is a fantastic product that I have used for years on cuts & scrapes, hot spots on my dogs etc. It is fungicidal, antiseptic & a germicide. It can be purchased from almost any drug store, vitamin/health food store & many on-line vitamin sites. I got mine from swansonvitamins.com.

I know your pain my brothers & sisters.

I am trying Preparation H mixed with 3 drops Lavender oil and 2 drops Eucalyptus oil. It tingles but it helps disinfect and heal skin tissue. I also have been using suppositories. I have been using Lavender oil for the last ten years on scrapes, pimples and small cuts. Amazingly my skin doesn't scar when I use it for 3 times a day for 5 or 6 days!

BTW, ACV with garlic diluted in water is an excellent way to clear out bacteria and viruses in the colon as an enema. You will need to replace good bacteria with probiotic yogurt or friendly flora supplements.

I started asking about hemorrhoid remedies while pregnant with my fifth child. During the previous pregnancy (and especially after deliver) I had horrible, painful hemorrhoids.

A friend suggested the following:
1 small (2oz.) tube of KY jelly, squeezed into another container - mix in 5 drops of cypress essential oil and 15 drops of geranium cypress oil and mix very well. Apply liberally as needed.

I'll say that it does "tingle" but I wouldn't go so far as to say it burns. It provides almost instant relief and my hemorrhoids have remained very mild this time around!

Oh - one other thing that did work great for me was straight ICE PACKS - nothing else. But not as convenient as the essential oil mixture!

Eucalyptus Honey

Eucalyptus Honey for Hemorrhoids

OK, so my treatment is actually quite mixed, but I'll try to highlight all the important points before I describe what happened (spoiler alert: it's a bloody miracle). So, here is my current treatement:

- Apply Eucalyptis Honey directly on the Roid whenever possible, and especially after bowel movements

(if it's external, like mine were, then its as easy as applying cream, if it's internal, get it in somehow if you can, or just eat it)

- Mix honey with ACV every now and then, and apply EUCALYPTUS HONEY + ACV mix

- You may add castor oil, garlic (oil or raw juices), for more bazang.

- Continue until it's gone

Now for my full story:

Table Salt

I don't know where they came from, but one did. It was huge, on the top right side of the inside of my but, just outside and coming from within the anus. The pain was horrible, so I immediately thought "dirty place, diseased-type skin... put salt on it to calm it down". I did just that, and the pain was excruciating, but the overall pain of the Roid died down with it.


I applied ACV with the salt, to get a deflating, disinfecting effect going on. It worked, but I ran out of ACV, so I put salt again and it grew back in size. So, I went and got ACV and followed a lady on here who said rise out baby wipes, soak in ACV and put it up there, leaving it over night. It worked wonderfully for a while, but then my skin condition started to deteriorate, making the Roids worse, and then suddenly another bigger, worse Roid showed up at the bottom. I thought if this cure don't work, it's surgery for me.

Eucalyptus honey

So I cam across this scientifically proven olive oil + honey + beeswax mix. I couldn't get my hands on beeswax (because to be honest I'm new and didn't even know beeswax was consumable! ). So, I bought eucalyptus honey, knowing its antibiotic nature, and just put it straight on. IMMEDIATELY, just like the ACV the first time, the pain, itchiness, uncomfortableness, all of it, was gone. The size still remained.


So, eucalyptus honey makes all the bad go away and looks after skin, in fact improving it, and ACV does the opposite, which is destroy all that is in its path. Therefore, I can destroy the bugger without any damage, all with no pain or weird remedy, just mix it in a cup, put my finger in it, and put it on top (after washing that area properly, which is what you should do after every bowel movement. You don't wipe plates clean without washing, don't do the same to your butt).

Extra - sitting

I also ensured to change my sitting habits and ensure I'm not sitting in a way that could put bad pressure on them.

Final remarks and current results:

I can feel the little skin sticking out a bit, because they are veins going up that way after all, but everyday it reduces in size. It went from a grape size and blocking even my passing of gas, to barely the size of a pea. It should be gone by the weekend. I'll let you know if it is.

As of this posting I am 64 and have been a employing natural healing remedies for 40 years. I had my first juicer and water distiller back in 1971. For over 25 years I have been a vegetarian and workout regularly (3-6 days a week). However, over the last 10 months I have been experiencing hemorrhoid challenges. For about 4 months the pain threshold at times was at a 10 on a 1-10 scale. I tried nearly every "natural" remedy recommended on this and other sites. Nothing provided the relief that "rebounding" (small trampoline excerciser) has provided. After two days of rebounding for 30 minutes each day I noticed a significant reduction in the swelling. After a week I was practically back to normal; free of pain and with much more energy. Check the internet for the many benefits that rebounding offers. It is said to basically "knit" your body back to normal at the cellular level!

Great results! I have advised rebounding here in my case for the eyes but it is true that it is a great exercise for all kinds of problems, even to keep young! I am guilty of not doing it enough even now my husband gave me a very good one on my birthday last year (I used to have a cheap one but this one is a completely different experience!). Anyway, even with a cheap one you can achieve great results. Tell me something, do you do any special kind of exercises or do you just jump? I do some exercises with music, I have two great DVD's and it is a lot of fun.

That's interesting because I'm pretty sure that rebounding (which I adore) has actually caused my current internal hemorrhoids. Admittedly, I was doing it pretty strenuously for 60 minutes, four days a week for two months. I am wondering if I'll ever be able to rebound again... Hope you're still bouncing away, Sharieff!

1) Walk 30 minutes per day
2) Drink a smoothie once per day with the following included: 1 tbl. spoon apple cyder vinegar, 1 tbl. spoon cold-milled flaxseed, 1 tbl. spoon psyllium husk fiber supplement.
3) Minimize meets and dairy, maximize fruits, veggies, fiber in general.
4) Very regular kegel exercises. Do this laying in bed and anytime during the day. Do it sitting at your desk at work or in your car, or while walking. Very beneficial and can be done anywhere, anytime.

Clear soluble fiber.

I had hemorrhoids after childbirth and while witch hazel helped with some of the pain and itching, it didn't really cure them.

For a different health concern, I started taking a product that is advertised as "clear soluble fiber" or "non-thickening fiber". Insoluble fiber can dry out your stool, which can irritate hemorrhoids; soluble fiber makes the stool easier to pass, which (I believe) allows the hemorrhoids to heal.

This even worked for one of my cats! I gave him 1/2 a teaspoon in his water bowl every 3-4 days, and he never noticed because it doesn't have any flavor or texture when dissolved in water. In a few days he was better, and I continued to add it to his water for prevention.

I tried taking pills and the powder you add to water and it did not help my problem at all.

I have protruding hems that flare up after using the restroom. I tried ACV and Witch Hazel but got no relieve. Did receive partial relieve by drinking cranberry juice with ginger added to it. However, have now found total relieve by taking fiber capsules (no not Metamucel). I found them at the Health/Nutrition store. The brand is Yerba Prima and each capsule is 625 mg. I take 2 3 times a day (along with each meal) and drink at least 8 oz. of some type of liquid. I've had this problem for at least 12 years and I'm overjoyed.

Fresh Radish Juice

I suffered from stage 2-3 hemorrhoids few years ago. I tried several medicines prescribed by doctors but nothing helped me.

What worked for me is radish juice. I took radish juice around 150 to 200 ml every day morning and evening on empty stomach continuously for 4 days. I

started feeling the reduction in pain and shrinking of hemorrhoids from day two itself. In 4 days my hemorrhoids gone completely. I am sure this remedy will work for all. I also recommended this remedy to couple of my friends and they too get cured very fast. I recommend this to every one. Radish juice, immediately after juicing have a very strong taste. I use to drink it immediately after juicing.

Those who cannot handle the taste, take the juice 30 minutes after juicing ( If you leave the radish juice for for some time, its strong taste will be come mild to some what sweeter ).

Good Luck.

You mean 150- 200ml twice per day? or 75- 100ml twice per day?

After reading through the comments, I would just like to add something. Yes, I have found that garlic cloves inserted anally is the most effective remedy. I've had this embarrassing problem since I had babies in the 1970's. Initially, it was an external problem then became internal. I would wake up at night in excruciating pain and have to walk around and take pain killers until I got some sort of relief. Finally, around 10 years ago I found out about garlic (an Ayurvedic solution) and have used it ever since. Recently I noticed some new bleeding with every bowel movement and thankfully, have started the strict garlic insertion again. Seems to be working. BUT I wanted to know why this time, the bleeding was increasing. Then I suddenly realized that I have been sitting way too much (I am 76 and spend many days seated, doing art work.) Now, I force myself to stay on my feet for much more time each day and I think this is helping as well. So, I believe that staying active is VERY important--we were never meant to sit for hours at a time! I hope this is helpful to some of you!

Due to dehydration and overdoing lifting and carrying heavy items, I had a hemorrhoid incident where one side of my anus became just swollen painful tissue. After 3 months of agony and trying just about every hemorrhoid remedy I could find, I finally went to a doctor. What I thought was an internal hemorrhoid that extended outside my anus, turned out to be a one inch long skin tag. I had outpatient surgery to remove the skin tag and got my life back. I still need to heal the hemorrhoids, but at least I can walk, move, and have a BM without incapacitating pain. My suggestion is to see a doctor to at least know for sure what your issue is.
