Natural Hemorrhoid Treatment.
There are lots reasons to use the many available natural hemorrhoid treatments that we have access to. By being focused on natural treatments we actually find ourselves healthier all over, as each of the foods we eat and the herbs we drink help not only our hemorrhoids, but our whole well being.
On our previous page: Natural Treatment of Hemorrhoids, we explained what hemorrhoids are and ways of treating them such as sitz baths and ice and heat, and lots more.
On our page: Varicose Veins and Hemorrhoids Herbal Treatment, we talked about breathing, compresses and poultices, as well as about many herbs and how to use them, and about essential oils.
The page: Treating Varicose Veins, explains what varicose veins are (by the way, Hemorrhoids are varicose veins so we will refer to them both here), causes of varicose veins, exercise, pregnancy and some thing we can do to prevent them.
This page will round it all out by finishing up different methods of natural hemorrhoid treatment, including herbal oils or salve (make your own), suppositories (make your own), and vitamins, with a reminder of how important exercise is.
Shall we get started with even more natural hemorrhoid treatment?
Herbal Infused Oil.
Herbal oil as a natural hemorrhoid treatment is easy to make. Learn how to make it by clicking here. Herbal infused oil can be used in a number of ways including massage. After the oil is made you can use it to make salves or ointments if you prefer.
Oil from a single herb can be used effectively or you can make a blend. Here are a couple of very effective blends.
Varicose Vein Oil
2 parts St. Johns wort oil
1 part comfrey oil
1 part plantain oil
1 part yarrow oil
Use 2 times a day - remember to always stroke toward the heart.
1 part yarrow oil
1 part shepherd's purse oil
1 part calendula oil
1/4 part cayenne oil
Use 2 times a day.
Of course, herbal tea used as a natural hemorrhoid treatment is used as a beverage and taken by mouth. Drinking this herbal tea strengthens the integrity of the veins and helps prevent distortion for occuring.
This is a great herbal tea blend:
Healthy Vein Tea
3 parts Hawthorn berries
3 parts Butchers Broom
2 parts Prickly Ash Bark
1 part Ginger (dried or fresh)
1/2 part lemon peel
Mix these ingredients together.
Use 2 teaspoons in 1 cup of water. Prepare as a decoction for 15 minutes (I always recommend at least doubling this recipe, so that you have more ready when you need it.) Then remove it from the heat and add 1/2 t. yarrow. Let steep an additional 15 minutes. Strain. Drink 3 times daily.
Healing Tea for Healthy Veins from Rosemary Gladstar
2 parts butchers broom
2 parts hawthorn berries
2 parts rose hips
1 part white oak bark
Prepare as a decoction, again for 15 minutes, and drink 2 to 3 cups a day as a natural hemorrhoid treatment.
We listed many herbs for natural hemorrhoid treatment on the previous page, but here are some of the other herbs that can be used in different ways. We have so many different things we can work with there really is no excuse.
The advantage of using salve as a natural hemorrhoid treatment instead of just oil is that it stays on longer and is easier to carry in your pocket. Salves are easy and very rewarding to make. Learn to make salves by clicking here.
A salve which is very good for using on veins, either in the legs or in the anal area.
1 part St. Johns wort
1 part comfrey
1 part calendula
1 part witch hazel (the herb)
You can also use any of the above herbs by infusing them in oil and making a salve to apply to your hemorrhoids or veins.
Suppositories and Enemas.
Here is a home remedy I read about but have never tried. Who knows - maybe it will work.
You can use raw potato suppositories or cayenne and garlic enemas to help heal hemorrhoids and relieve pain. Peel potatoes and cut them so that they are shaped like small cones. A peeled clove of garlic can be used in the same way. Do this 3 x a week.
If you aren't brave enough to do that, you can follow our instructions on making suppositories from infused oil and essential oil. They are very soothing and healing. Make Your Own Suppository.
Well, that's a lot of ideas we can use on our varicose veins and hemorrhoids. We have so many options. Try a few - or all of them. I am sure you will find your personal favorite.
