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 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. 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.

I have successfully tried this combination. In a small jar of about 50 ml mix 2 or 3 of these oils: olive, avocado, sesame or almond. Sesame is the best but the others are also great. Then add all or any of these essential oils about 10 drops each: peppermint (or spearmint), cypress and tea tree. Apply 3 to 4 times a day when bad and less later: before and after every BM, after showering and before going to bed. Application is by dipping the middle finger in the jar and sliding about 3 cms (1 inch) up the anus and applying externally around the hole. Do this 2 to 3 times. Never double dip (ie replace your dirty finger into the jar). This is difficult even unpleasant (I do understand), but it does work. It works very, very well. Good for hems and fissures. Basically you are lubricating the area for easier BMs and applying a good dose of vitamins and ant-bacterials where they are needed. Stops the itching too.

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

I know your pain my brothers & sisters.
