Thread: Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids – 6 Natural Treatments

    Default Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids – 6 Natural Treatments

    So a friend on the forum PM'd me telling me he's been suffering for years from hemorrhoids, something about hundreds of long hours sitting in F16s (I'll keep his username private) and he asked if I knew about any natural remedies to help with the discomfort and for prevention.

    6 Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids

    Apple Cider Vinegar – Using apple cider vinegar is one of the most popular natural treatments for hemorrhoids. Simply soak a cotton ball or some toilet paper with ACV and apply it to the hemorrhoid area. Repeat this process until the inflammation disappears and symptoms resolve. You should see improvement instantly. Alternatively, add some ACV (half a cup) to a sitz bath.

    Rutin – A health-promoting compound found in numerous plants such as buckwheat, oranges, grapefruit, lemon, cranberries, and asparagus (to name a few), rutin is another home remedy often used for hemorrhoids. Buying it in supplement form may be the best option. One individual on Earthclinic says: “I have had a hemmroid for almost a year now. Just last week I started taking Rutin 500mg twice a day, in the morning and one before going to bed. … taking Rutin for only a week the inflammation has gone down and my hemmroid thankfully is almost gone, it’s less than a size of a pea today.”
    Coconut Oil - Apply coconut oil directly to hemorrhoids, rinse and repeat. In addition to symptoms subsiding, the hemorrhoids should disappear over the course of just a few days.

    Witch Hazel - An astringent and healing tree, witch hazel is one of the oldest known natural remedies for hemorrhoids. Just soak a pad or cotton ball with witch hazel and apply it to the area.

    Aloe Vera – As with the above treatments, simply apply aloe vera to the affected area to relieve symptoms.

    Squat, Don’t Sit – This is actually heavily important and very overlooked. Conventional toilets are highly unnatural, and may be one reason hemorrhoids are rarely seen in less developed countries, where where squatting is done when going to the bathroom. Sitting down to pass a bowel movement puts tremendous strain on the rectum while squatting straightens the rectum and relaxes the puborectalis muscle. This is tip should be done along with any home remedies for hemorrhoids you may use.

    Up Fiber Intake: Eat Plenty of Vegetables, Fruit - Seeing as hemorrhoids result from constipation and straining, it should be no surprise that upping fiber intake can help mend the issue. Fiber helps soften stools and is essential for colon health and digestive health as a whole. This nutrient helps to clean out the gastrointestinal system, preventing constipation and allowing the colon to work at greater levels of efficiency. Sources of fiber include: vegetables of all kinds, flax seeds, almonds, pecans, pistachios, prunes, pears, and beans. Include these foods in your diet while trying the other home remedies for hemorrhoids.

    Or just go to any major airport and try to look suspicious...I'm sure the TSA has a free hemorrhoid removal procedure.

    I'll tell my friend that. He flies very often. Do you know if the Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport TSA division has any experience with hemorrhoid removal?

    Thanks(I suppose?) to Jebuardo for inviting me to this thread. The only thing I have to add is to visit the "poopin' 2.0" thread for how to use a poop box on a modern toilet. IDK where that thread is now, but it gave me giggles a few years back.

    My friend sent me a PM and he says he's very thankful to you all for your tips and suggestions.

    He says he's going to speak with the Air Force and see if his chronic hemorrhoid qualify him for VA disability benefits. He's adamant that the cause of it all is the countless hours spent in an F16 cockpit.
