Using Herbs to Relieve Hemorrhoids - Aloe Vera, Bilberry, Butchers Broom
To relieve hemorrhoids first look for ways to get your bowels moving easier and more frequently so they produce softer stools. I have suggestion ways, in other articles, to do this by changing your diet.
Any straining and puffing you do to push hard or even soft stools out during a bowel movement will aggravate your hemorrhoids and can lead to bleeding and pain.
When completing a bowel movement, make sure you are
using the softest tissue available so that when you clean
yourself you don't scrape or aggravate your hemorrhoids.
You can also use pre-moisten tissue. Just make sure that
the tissue you use is not colored or scented because these
chemical additives can aggravate your hemorrhoids.
You may have to take a shower a couple times a day to
keep your rectum area clean.
Here are three natural remedies that you can use to aid in eliminating your hemorrhoids.
Aloe Vera gel is an astringent that helps to heal open
wounds. It is useful in hemorrhoids by applying the gel
directly onto your anus. The best type of gel for this is
directly from the aloe plant. If you don't have one, then
100% organic whole leaf aloe gel is second best.
You can get this organic aloe at a health food or nutrition store.
If you have a fresh plant, wash a leaf thoroughly with
distilled water. Peel it on one side, bend it with the peeled
side outward, and slip it into your anus. This will provide
you with pain relief and reduce your hemorrhoid bleeding.
Just trim down the leaf so it slides into your anus easily.
Aloe Vera juice, that you drink, is also good for hemorrhoids.
It helps to soften your stools and to activate peristaltic
action. If you like aloe juice, then drink around 1/2 a cup of
Aloe Vera juice three time a day.
You can add 1/4 or 1/3 part aloe juice to a cup of apple
juice to make the taste easier to handle.
To make this aloe-apple juice more effective, add 10 drops
of barberry extract.
Barberry is an astringent for blood vessel congestion along
the colon and rectum. It will improve blood circulation; it
stimulates the immune system to resist disease, and will
tone body tissues. It also is capable of stopping bleeding
Bilberry's active ingredients are flavanoids. Bilberry contains
chemical called "anthocyanosides." This fruit like herb has
been used in Europe for a long time. In clinical studies, it
has shown to be effective in treating weak capillaries by
strengthening their walls.
Buy the 25% standardized formula and take 100 mg three
times a day of bilberry. Bilberry will give you hemorrhoid relief.
Butcher's broom, an evergreen bush, has a history of being
used for varicose veins and hemorrhoids. As an extract, it
contains "ruscogenins", which can narrow blood vessels and
decrease their inflammation and swelling. It strengthens
and tones veins and capillary walls.
Take 100 mg of butcher's broom three times a day. Use the
type that has 9-11% ruscogenins.
Now you can use either of the three herbal remedies for hemorrhoid relief. If one is not working to good, try the other. Once you have gotten the hemorrhoid relief that you want stop using the herbal remedy.
