Suffering from hemorrhoids may be one of the most uncomfortable things you will ever feel in that area. Feeling pain, which can feel like a dull ache or a stabbing knife, especially when you sit for extended periods of time or have to be on your feet for a while can put quite a hold on enjoying life.
When you have a hemorrhoid problem that is anywhere from mild to moderate, you have many choices of what to do for them. The one thing you don’t want to do is ignore them. One of the choices for hemorrhoids treatment is to use one of the many home remedies. There are even ways to make homemade treatments that will help take care of the symptoms, while also taking care of the whole problem.
Making a treatment may be as simple as using some Aloe Vera gel and mixing it with a couple of drops of lavender and chamomile essential oil. Using this as a topical ointment will offer relief of some of the symptoms you have been experiencing. Apply it twice a day, once in the morning and just before bed.
Another homemade treatment you can use is a strong tea made from Lady’s mantle (yarrow) plant. Make the tea, and use a cotton ball to apply it to your anal area a few times a day. Relief to itching and pain will help you feel much better. You can also make a salve with bayberry, myrrh, and goldenseal root. You can use Aloe Vera gel as the base, and apply it a couple of times a day.
One great way to help relieve the swelling, pain, and itching you may be suffering from is to take a warm bath a couple of times a day. Adding an essential oil such as lavender or chamomile will help relieve your symptoms even more.
You could make an enema using either garlic boiled in water, or cayenne pepper. Using one of these in an enema will offer you relief from the inside out. You may also find that drinking a glass of water with cayenne pepper or vinegar a couple of times a day helps. It will go through your digestive canal, and help soothe the colon, the anal canal and the rectum.
Witch hazel is another thing you can use. Soak a pad with it, and place it on the area for about 10 minutes, about three times a day. Healing of the area will begin, and relief will be fast.
Whatever homemade hemorrhoids treatment you use, you are sure to find more relief if you begin treating it as soon as the symptoms are noticed. Using things you might already have at home will be more convenient, more private, and save you time and money.
