Hemorrhoid Tea

For many people, nothing is more annoying and painful than hemorrhoids. The burning and itching can be unbearable, and sometimes, over-the-counter treatments aren’t the answer; whether they don’t work, aren’t available, or you just don’t want to take them. There is another option; a lot of them actually. There are tons of natural cures that you can use at home (and not be embarrassed by having to buy something at the store). Here are some of the best options for you to try.

Some natural cures are effectively cure-alls because they can help cure so many different ailments. One of these natural cure-alls is apple cider vinegar. To treat hemorrhoids, just put some straight apple cider vinegar onto a cotton ball and swab onto the affected area as needed until the swelling and pain is gone. This may burn, but the pain should go away quickly. If the pain is too much for you, try diluting the vinegar with water before you apply it. It’s also a good idea to mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water and drink daily. This will help with many conditions and keep you in good health.

Another great natural cure-all that is effective for hemorrhoids is mangosteen juice. You can put the mangosteen juice on a cotton ball and apply directly to the area for relief. Just like apple cider vinegar, this juice is a great product to drink every day for good overall health.

There are many other natural products that you can apply to swollen hemorrhoids to help ease the pain. Another great idea is to swab the area with a cotton ball soaked in witch hazel. After this, you should then apply a small amount of coconut oil. Both these treatments can be found at health food stores. If you can only find one, they work separately, but work even better together.

Another great idea for naturally treating hemorrhoids is to take a hot bath. While many treatments will take away the itching, this will also help the swelling go down; further easing your pain and discomfort. You can also use this opportunity to soothe your pain with aromatherapy by adding 20 drops of lavender and juniper oil to the bath. Along with easing swelling and pain, a hot bath can also relax you and help you feel better overall. If the heat doesn’t help the swelling go down, you may also want to try applying a cold compress. Just be use to wrap the ice pack in a towel so it’s not too cold; otherwise you could cause damage and more pain.

While you shouldn’t judge people by what they wear, hemorrhoids don’t follow the same standards. If you have hemorrhoids, or are prone to them, you shouldn’t wear certain types of clothes that aggravate the area and make the problem worse. This includes tight fitting clothes. Tight clothes, particularly jeans can rub and pinch making pain greater. You should wear loose fitting clothes and thin cotton underwear that helps the area breathe. This may sound strange, but men may want to try wearing women’s underwear (boy shorts are best) because they fit and breathe better than those made for men.

The last treatment for hemorrhoids is also a great way to prevent them. Hemorrhoids are often caused by struggling too hard when constipated. For this reason, eating certain foods can help prevent and treat them. The most important thing is to eat a lot of fiber. This can be annoying, but probably not as annoying and the pain and itching of hemorrhoids. The best way to get fiber is through fresh fruits and vegetables whole grains, beans, and of course, bran. You should try to get 30 grams or more of fiber a day.

Hopefully one or more of these treatments works for you. If you try all these methods and nothing works, or your hemorrhoids become so severely swollen you can’t sit, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
