I have had incredible pain with my hemorroids for a long time, since I gave birth to my six year old. Of course they always seemed better every time I arrived at my doc's office. I have tried ACV, but CANNOT stomach it without throwing up violently immediately afterwards, and it stings horribly if I apply it topically to my hemorroids. I have tried witch hazel, which has worked temporarily, for only about twenty minutes or so before the pain has come back. I am currently an Alt. Med. student, and have poured through my books looking for ANYTHING that may help, and a cold compress of Yarrow ground in a mortar and pestle with a tiny bit of water has helped with the pain and inflammation a lot! I lay down with the compress applied for about 20 minutes, and it eases the inflammation, stops the bleeding, and eases the pain exponentially! I can actually make a bowel movement afterwards!! I keep excess fluid from the mixture in a container in the fridge to dab at my hemorroids after bowel movements, and to keep it moist, which helps a lot. Yarrow also kills bacteria, which may cause an infection if you have a bleeding wound on your hemm. I hope that this helps someone. But remember, it is not a cure, it helps treat your symptoms. Once you have a hemorroid, it never goes away, it just shrinks and stops causing problems. You may not see it and it may not hurt, but it is still there.
Potassium brings relief to me. What have you tried?
I have been taking potassium for a long time, I have very low blood pressure and one of my teachers had mentioned that it helps with that. I don't really see any difference using potassium. It is painful enough that I may visit my doc again. I really rather not, but TN has laws about ND's, and they can't practice here.
I read on doctoryourself.com that vitamin E oil applied topically helps hemorroids. Other sites have recommended wheat germ oil or coconut oil topically. All have helped me
I have been experimenting with the yarrow recipe, and have used coconut oil as a carrier for the yarrow, and it has improved so much! I apply the balm after every B.M., after cleansing, and I can live without pain! I do the same thing to the yarrow as before, without the water, then add it to a clear container with the melted coconut oil and put it in a hot sunny window until the coconut oil turns green. Then I strain out most of the yarrow and pour it into a smaller opaque container and keep it in the fridge until it has re-solidified. This really works.
I have heard a lot of benefits using Vitamin E liquid, but we are on a very tight budget- really, really tight- and cannot spend any money. Thankfully I have been growing medicinal herbs, and harvesting some from the yard.
