321 Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids


I would never get surgery for this kind of thing.

I had this problem starting a little (itching, some bleeding). My yoga teacher told me to do this certain yoga position. I first tried it for 5 minutes and the problem went away for an hour. So I tried it for as long as I could at the time (about 30-40 minutes) and the problem went away for days. Then every time the problem started, I would do this position and technique. After a while the problem went away.

So it's the 'bridge' yoga position. Google it. Or basically: Lie on your back, hands to your side, palms down. Bend your legs all the way so your feet touch your hands by your bottom. Take a slow deep breath, the raise your bottom as high as you can while exhaling slowly. While holding it up there breathing deeply, also tighten your anus muscles (sphincter) as hard as you cold and hold it. Hold the position as long as you can.

That's it. Worked like a charm for me.

Also of course a good diet helps (more natural food and fiber so you don't strain on the toilet) plus exercise and anything that helps digestion (teas etc).


its hard to believe but this really does work. my family has done this for generations. all you have to do is cut a small piece of ginger root and insert it into the anus of the person who has a fever. let it rest there for about 10 minutes and then remove. the swelling of the hemorrhoid will reduce greatly within minutes of removal.


I have had hemorrhoids for years and I have been looking into surgery. I came across this web page. I didn't put garlic up my
butt but got a small crushed jar of garlic and applied with a cotton ball then I applied apple cider vinegar....I have NO PAIN ! It honestly works ...I have done this two times and I have had 5 days of relief so far...Don't know which item worked but it does! try this before the knife!


Dried Mullien Flowers used in the same quantities as teabags and made in much the same way are remarkably effective. I found the idea in a book of Russian Folk medicine years ago and after two years of trouble they disappeared in about a week. I have since passed the idea on to several people who had similar results. You can buy it as a herbal tincture and drop seven or eight drops into near boiling water, again like tea. Search the flowers/leaves online easy to find.

I am a fifty six year old woman who experienced my first hemorrhoidal symptoms at the age of eighteen, since when this humiliating condition has become increasingly acute, and frankly scary. As an age old expert on this unpleasant subject, I advise that the most effective topical relief can be effected by inserting a clove of garlic (with the outer layer cut away to release the juices) into the anus. This stings quite strongly for a few moments, after which relief is profound. However I have now, only very recently, made some life-style changes which have effected a complete remission of all symptoms, thus (most gratefully) rendering garlic-up-the-bum a thing of the past. I have simply stopped drinking coffee and red wine, and stopped eating all wheat products. Since making these changes my piles (internal and external)have disappeared, my bowel movements are healthier than they have ever been, I am no longer leaking fluids from my anus, and I am losing belly fat without any effort whatsoever. When I have lapsed (drunk a coffee, or eaten bread or cake) these embarrassing symptoms have returned almost immediately. Need I say more ?!


This is the treatment I use for hemorrhoids.

1. I bathe 2-3 times per day in a hot bath with 5 drops of pure Lavender essential oil and 5 drops of pure Eucalyptus oil and some epsom salts. (Use no more than 10 drops of oil in a bath as it can irritate the skin if used in excess, after a good soak (about 10 to 15 mins) I gently massage the hemorrhoids for a couple of minutes.

2. After bathing I pat the area dry and apply witch hazel and then Germaloids cream (which has zinc oxide and Lidocaine in it, ahhhhhhhhh sweet relief)

3. Take Ibuprofen for pain and to reduce swelling.

Hemorrhoids are usually gone withing a few days and the treatments ensure that while I have them, I'm not in too much pain.

An earlier post asks what to do about the little flaps of skin that can be left behind. As a 34 yr old woman who has these ugly flaps of skin this is n important thing to me. I recently read something (which I now cannot find) that was a cure for this. It's called the '3 fingers for 3 minutes method'. Basically you use a lubricant (I'll use my Germaloids as it has the Lidocaine in it) on your anus and one by one insert 3 fingers as far as you can into your rectum and when they are all in leave them in place for 3 minutes. This has the effect of stretching out the anal tissue so that the flaps of skin go back to how they should be. I experimented with this and inserted the 3 for 1 minute and it had a great effect, I had anal tissue that prolapsed every time I passed a stool (even a soft one) and this stopped after doing this. I fell after even one proper go of this the skin flaps will be much improved and certainly after several goes combined with some anal muscle strengthening exercises.

I've also started taking odourless garlic capsules so hopefully this will help strengthen the veins to prevent further out breaks. I've heard that Rutin (High grade vitamin C) is also really good at preventing them.

Hope some of this helps someone.


Day 1

i was shocked when it came knocking on the 'backdoor', i was unsure of why it appeared. (i think it was the 3x B.M in one day).
I noticed a small lump(pea size) and first thing came to mind 'sh&t'
after that i was stuck at work and had nothing to put on it and noticed i had detol hand sanitizer (i knew it would burn like hell, but i figured the alco would help) it kind of did after a while.(wouldnt recommend) but did it help the process, i dont know?

Day 2
after that I thought its time to think logical and decided to fight it properly(however i did not read much of others remedies but just figured out on my own)

above was over two days(use of Detol hand sanitizer - as was stuck at work and couldnt do much)
whilst going to bed, applied baby powder.

Day 3
before work
applied witch hazel to cotton ball(soaked) and placed on hroid, rubbed around gently for two mins, did this twice.
then applied anusol cream moderately
breakfast (toast and fruit) with glass of metamucil

at work
B.M (always used wet tissues and soap,since kid)

at home
1x tablet of asprin(500mg)after food
with glass of metamucil(less than the morning amount)

warm to hot bath with epsom salts roughly 150gm
add roughly qtr cup of witchhazel
gently massage hroid with soap and try to push it back in whilst sucking your stomach and pushing forwards to the ceiling
after bath - applied cotton ball with witch hazel - (twice), almost inserting into 'backdoor'(this is not meant to be enjoyable)/lol/ whilst doing this squeeze the excess.
gently rub the hroid with the cotton ball.
after that allow to air dry for a few mins then apply reasonable amount of anusol and go to bed.

Day 4(today)
before work
i have repeated above
cotton ball with witch hazel
then applied anusol
breakfast (toast and fruit) with glass of metamucil

at work first B.M
found it has either gone back up where it belongs, but i noticed whilst before B.M it has SHRUNK!! like next to nothing (sea salt grain size), and afterwards i noticed it has either gone or went back up to surpise me later(that was my first hroid and hopefully never more to come)

however, tonight will be repeating the bath and all other steps for atleast a week to be certain.

thanks for reading.

I have suffered from Hemorrhoids and constipation for several years. I had constipation issues from taking pain killers and having surgery. I have no Idea why I had the hemorrhoids but have had them since childhood. I really want to share a product that naturally helped me so much. The Stoolstep raised my feet helping me go which eliminated almost completely the straining which causes those horrid hemorrhoids.


I have been suffering from rather large external hemorrhoids for years now.. I even went to the doctor after about a year of suffering only to be given rather expensive suppositories which only aggrivated the problem!! The doctors are useless when you have no health insurance. After coming across this site I decided to give some suggestions a try. First of all diet is very important but it alone is simply not enough to get rid of this problem. I know first hand how much this can control your life and I want to share what I have found so that maybe I can help someone stop suffering as I have finally managed to do on my own. I have taken the most effective treatments and created my own personal program which if you follow my intructions I promise you this will solve this problem and dramatically increase your healing time and potentially rid you of this problem once and for all!!

First I needed things that were common around the house or were inexpensive so here goes... this is what works!

*** In the morning everyday until the problem is gone you need to take a glass of warm water and dissolve 1tsp of cayenne pepper and drink it down.

*Cayenne pepper works from the inside out by relieving swelling and inflammation in veins and is proven to restore vein elasticity to that of a youthful state with continued daily use.

*** For external hemorrhoids I have found that taking equal parts (about 1oz) of witch hazel & apple cider vinegar & crushing one whole clove of garlic into a paste & combining all three together & soaking it into either a cotton ball or gauze pad & leaving this inbetween your butt cheeks all day forces them to shrink & relieves the pain & irritation throughout the day. I tried it without garlic and it wasnt effective. it helped a little bit once garlic was added it made all the difference!! It will burn to begin with but it will be well worth the burn once you wake up on the 3rd day & notice your hemorrhoids almost gone!

*** Also, I take one garlic clove and partially slice it into three sections and lubricate it with aloe vera gel and use it as a suppository nightly. This is patricularly helpful if you have internal hemorrhoids or your hemorrhoids are advanced as mine are and cause a sticky odorless discharge to come out of the anus. This discharge will irritate the hemorrhoids and prolong the healing time. Since garlic kills bacteria it will ensure that most of the discharge that continues to come out is as free of bacteria as possible.

Most of the effective pills you can buy for hemorrhoids contain both cayenne pepper & garlic. Its truly amazing what both of them together can do for your body! They can be quite expensive as well.

*Garlic works because if its antibacterial properties attributed to a chemical it contains called allicin which gives it hemorrhoid fighting antibacterial properties & that distinctive aroma it has. Garlic is even dubbed as the most potent “miracle cures” known to man. It serves as a powerful antibiotic, reduces blood pressure and blood sugar, fortifies the body’s immune system and reduces the cancer causing effects in nitrates.

***Another thing that helps is to use baby wipes & squeeze all of the liquid out of them and soak them in witch hazel for use after going to the bathroom. DO NOT USE TOILET PAPER! IT WILL IRRITATE THE INFLAMED TISSUE & LEAVE YOU UNCLEAN! You need this area to be rid of bacteria to promote healing. Since most witch hazel you find comes with 14% alcohol this is great at relieving the pain, swelling & killing the bacteria after bowel movements.

*Witch hazel also promotes healing by shrinking, stopping bleeding hemorrhoids & reducing inflammation in blood vessels. It is the common ingredient in most over the counter pads (such as Tucks) because of its soothing properties associated with this shrub.

So just remember these 4 ingredients and you will be rid of this problem in no time...

Cayenne pepper (orally daily in 8fl oz warm water)

Garlic (externally, internally & orally daily)

Witch Hazel (as a topical & after bowel movements)

Apple cider vinegar (orally, internally & externally)

None of us want this problem to last any longer than it has to so taking a multiple cure approach has been in my experience the most effective treatment in curing my own problem. I hope you will take my advice and together we can all spread the word on what really works!!! Good luck!

Fire in the hole

Soothing vapor patches (like the ones you put on your child's chest). It does not HAVE to be vicks; vapor is the key. Absolute, 100% instantanious relief. The burning sucks but is tolerable; better than a flamin' cherry bomb that's for sure.
