What's In Your Natural Hemorrhoid Remedy?

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 51   |   Comments: 0

When an attack of hemorrhoids stops you from enjoying life, it's nice to know that you have natural alternatives to relieve your pain. The plant-based ingredients listed below are found in several over-the-counter alternative hemorrhoid remedies. More people are finding that these gentle natural herbs give effective relief, with few to no side effects. As always, ask your doctor before purchasing hemorrhoid products online.

Herbals Available In External Hemorrhoid Treatments

-Witch hazel, an astringent herb, is the old stand-by treatment for hemorrhoids. Apply with a cotton ball a few times a day to help shrink inflamed anal tissues. You can also buy processed witch hazel powder at health food stores and make your own cooling compress.

-Yarrow, another herb with astringent properties, can be boiled into a tea and applied with a cotton ball several times a day to help stop hemorrhoidal bleeding.

-Processed comfrey root, available from health food and vitamin shops, can be made into a paste and used as a compress to heal bleeding hemorrhoids. In fact, comfrey extracts have been approved for medicinal use in Germany to treat severe bruises and sprains. Don't use raw comfrey from the wild; it may contain toxins that can irritate your skin.

-Chamomile contains oily substances known as bisabolols and chamazulenes, which are proven to soothe irritated tissues. Many top-of-the-line skin care products contain these extracts. The effectiveness of chamomile extracts in hemorrhoid healing was demonstrated recently: hemorrhoid surgery patients given a chamomile-based ointment during recovery healed faster.
