Treating hemorrhoids can be one of the most simple things if you know what your options are and what has been proven to work well for others. You will have a much better chance of ending hemorrhoid problems and having the area healed well, if you begin treatments as soon as you notice any symptoms.
Hemorrhoids treatment with herbal remedies work very well for many people. They are non invasive, inexpensive, and sometimes offer enough help to end the problem completely. One of the best things about using herbs to control and get rid of the hemorrhoid problem that you have been experiencing, is that it can be done in the privacy and comfort of your own home, without medical intervention.
One of the long proven herbal treatments is to make a compress of Dandelion. You can make Dandelion tea, and soak a cloth in it. Apply it to the area for ten minutes, four times a day. You can also use Butcher’s Broom, Horse Chestnut, White Oak Bark, Barberry, and Witch Hazel.
If you use witch hazel or horse chestnut, you will need to use them externally. They both offer an astringent effect which will help decrease any swelling you may be experiencing. When the swelling is reduced, the pain will also be reduced.
You can take Butcher’s Broom and Horse Chestnut in a gel capsule. They are available at most health food stores. Butcher’s Broom and Horse Chestnut will help to make the walls of your veins stronger, and treat the problem of varicose veins, even in the rectum- which is what hemorrhoids is. Barberry will promote a healthy digestive tract, and is also a blood purifier.
There are also mixtures of herbal hemorrhoids treatment products that you can get to take on a daily basis. Similar to supplements, these are specially formulated to help with blood flow, vein health, bowel health, and digestive health. Convenient and easy to take, you may want to look for one at a health food store or on the Internet.
Whatever herbal treatment you choose to deal with your hemorrhoid problem, you will want to check with your doctor if you are on any medication. Some herbs may not work along with some medication, or may even interact with it and present other health problems.
Herbs can promote health in many ways, as long as they are taken with care. Make sure you know what you are taking, what the risks may be, and that you are not allergic to it. If you have any health problems other than the hemorrhoid problem, you should talk to your doctor about any herbs you add to your routine. Herbs are great if taken responsibly.
