I feel so grateful for this site!!! I had a strange bad hemmorhoid issue that came on during a very stressful time at age 44. Never before had I ever had such a problem, and it was scary when I found that conventional medicine is all about nasty surgery.
Reading here, I learned about ACV applications, and started doing them and received immediate comfort and a small reduction in swelling. But after 2 weeks of not much change, I chatted with a friend and she raved about a Chinese herbal pill formula with a western name of "Fargolin". I went to a chinese pharmacy in my town and they had several brands - all for only $4-$5 a bottle.
Well, amazingly, after just a couple of doses, the hemorrhoid responded beautifully. My friend said, "yeah, that's normal - just a few days is all it takes. " I asked if I should finish the bottle anyway and she said no, just save it in case you ever need it again. 2 years on, and still hemorrhoid-free!
Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris for Hemorrhoids
This unique herb helped my husband to get rid of his inflamed and bleeding (on and off) hemorrhoids after 26 years of suffering. I bought him 3 bottles of it because they told us he needs to take it for 3 months with a week break in between. Well, he never even got to the second bottle, his hemorrhoids diminished after taking the herb for about two weeks, but he took the capsules for one month. It has been about two months after he stopped taking it, he still cannot believe they are gone, they are not coming back even after he has constipation or ate a spicy meal. Make yourself a favor, do not buy the most expensive product out there, they are not any better, just buy the cheapest one with the yellow label, I am not affiliated with any websites or anything like that, I am just a happy woman for my husband and want to share our success with other sufferers. The one I bought costs about $7 a bottle, and it worked wonders. I will not stop recommending this herb and spreading the word.
And one more benefit - improved libido! Just don't overdo it, because there is a warning for people with enlarged prostates and pregnant women! Do your research first and try it for yourself, you will be glad you did! God Bless this website!
I have had very painful hemorrhoids for four months and have tried a lot of the home remedies mentioned on this site. ACV, Molasses, garlic, witch hazel, Rutin, Vitamin B6, suppositories, etc. To no avail.
Nothing worked until I tried 200 mg. Horse Chestnut Leaf, 800 mg. of Witch Hazel Leaf, and 100mg. Ginger Root. After three weeks of this mixture I am 90% cured and hope to be 100% soon. You can either get this mixtured from Hem-Relief or buy your own individually a lot cheaper.
I have had problems with sore and bleeding hemaroids for many years and I have almost instant relief using Swedish Bitters everytime they flare up..
I halve a cotton wool ball soak it in swedish bitters make into a bullet shape and wipe the affected area, then insert just slightly.. It really stings though but well worth it as within a minute or so all pain has gone.. I hope this helps someone..
For hemorrhoids - I have been having good results from taking a cup of strong chamomile tea liberally laced with honey every night. I read that some people had relief from hemorrhoids by eating more honey and also by drinking more chamomile tea, so I figured, why not combine the two? It's been giving me more comfortable morning ablutions. I highly recommend it.
I just wanted to add to the post of a home remedy that was given to me recently. Golden seal and Vaseline. Last week I had the worst case of "roids" I have ever encountered. It was so painful to just sit down, and I sit down at work all day long. I told a friend, and he suggested that I take Goldenseal Powder and mix it with Vaseline, and apply it to my infected area. I took it a step further and put the mixture in the freezer to make it nice and cold so it would help reduce the inflammation. Within 2 minutes I notice a dynamic decrease in pain. I have also goldenseal with over the counter Hemorrhoid cream, which I put in the freezer. It works wonders compared to hemorrhoid cream by itself.
I will try the AVC remedies I have read over this post to see how they work.
I just wanted to say, "Thank you, " to all the people who post on this webpage for all their input on holistic and natural home remedies.
In the last 15 years I have lost faith in modern medicine and have found it true in my personal experiences', that common sense and knowledge of TCM can go a long way for maintaining one's personal health. Good luck you all of you and thank you for all of your insights.
I learned this from an obscure magazine artical which I now cannot find in a doctors office.
At least 60 mg Gingko Biloba twice a day for five days to a week. Should start feeling almost complete relief on day three. If they come back in a few months just repeat the regimin.
I read that hemorrhoids show up when your liver is unable to process all the toxins, as it is overloaded by them. To help your liver take milk thistle capsules of 250 mgs with each meal, and take one capsule of Alpha Lipoic acid every day. When the liver is OK the hemorrhoids will be gone. It took me about a month, but it worked.
I discovered that fresh Jewelweed stopped the itching in one application so for winter I made a tincture of jewelweed and ethyl alcohol 2:1. This worked well better than the raw plant and it is also an anti pruritic better than cortisone.
The best treatment for hemorrhoids I have ever used is a homeopathic ointment called avenoc: it contains aesculus hippoastanium; collinsonia Canadensis and hamamellis virginiana. Buy it at health food store. It's a homeopathic remedy. Cured my problem..no surgery!
After trying several different home remedies for an external hemorrhoid, I decided to try the homeopathic remedy, Calc. Fluor. in the 6 x potency. I read that you should take 4 doses a day as well as apply it topically. I dissolved about 3 or 4 of the tablets in water and put some on a cotton ball. I squeezed out any excess water and placed the cotton ball on the hemorrhoid. I did this every night leaving the cotton ball on until morning. I never did take the Calc. Fluor. internally, but after 12 nights of applying it topically the hemorrhoid had shrunk and was healed. I kept the mixture in the refrigerator and made a fresh batch every 4 or 5 days.
Horse chestnut tablets, 3 times a day for 3 days and no more hemorrhoids!!! Guaranteed. It worked for both my sisters and my mother. They tried all the OTC products and nothing worked. I knew that Horsechestnut tablets worked for vein health and also know that hemorrohoids are a cluster of veins so I did a few experiments with family and 100 percent success rate everytime. You can buy horse chestnut tablets at a health food store (not to be confused with horsetail tablets) Try it, it works!
I have suffered from hemorrhoids for years. Even had the laser treatment. They no longer bled, but still came back at times. I had a particularly bad one a few weeks ago. I tried may cures on this site including ACV, Listerine, and tea tree oil. Nothing helped, and the Listerine HURT! I had read that Horse Chestnut was good for varicose veins so I thought I would try it for the hemorrhoid. I could feel it working within an hour of taking it. I continued to take it morning and night. The hemorrhoid was gone in a matter of days. I now take it daily as a preventative.
I read on internet that taking horse chestnut orally will cure hemorrhoids, so I'm taking that right now and I think that it's working. Horse chestnut is also good for chronic venous insufficiency or swelling of the legs which was the main reason I was taking it in the first place. The swelling in my left leg is slowly subsiding but I think it's working for that also. Horse chestnut is good for also coughs, arthritis, and some other things I can't remember at this time.Pycnogenol is suppose to be better for hemorrhoids than horse chestnut, but I don't know, I'm just trying the horse chestnut for now, and if I'm not satisfied with the results, I will try pycnogenol instead, in which it's supposed to work better for leg swelling

Since giving birth to 3 childern, I have occasionally suffered from very painful hemorrhiods. The best relief that works for me is a very warm shower with a detachable shower head that you can aim the flow directly on the hemorrhoids. This works better that soaking in a bath because the bath water cools down too quickly. After the shower be sure to dry thoroughly, even with a hair dryer. Then apply some vaseline or any petroleum jelly (unscented) on the area. This is best done at night just before bedtime when you can lie down and be off you feet. Hope it helps for you.
