Since having my cancer treatments i have developed hemorrhoids for the first time in my life.
Can anyone tell me what a good natural remedy would be to shrink them?
My doctor gave me an expensive prescription, but it doesn't work that well.
I have read that witch hazel may do the trick or lemon juice "ouch".
My Husband had dreadful Haemorroids, poor thing he was in so much pain and discomfort. All the prescription and OTC stuff really didn't help.
I have a natural product called SkinFix which I have for Rosacea (wonderful product for that too!) It doesn't say anywhere that it is good for Haemorroids, but when he tried it he was just amazed.
It contains Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree Oils along with some other things and when I researched it online I could see why it had worked so well. These particular Oils are astringent, meaning they contract veins. They are cooling and stop itches as well. the rest of the ingredients are of a healing/soothing nature.
Anyway, the result for hubby was instant relief and swears this is the best product in the world! I bought it online from NZ - arrived in 5 days which was really fast.
I have suffered from hemorrhoids since my first pregnancy. They said that prevention was the best medicine, but even with enormous amounts of fiber in my diet, my hemorrhoids never disappeared untill i started drinking a hih quality Tea Tree tea several times a day. I started drinking it just because of the great taste, but later found out that it is detoxifying, and it has made me regular and hemorrhoidal-free. I feel great. Before than I had also tried "perscription" creams. They are worthless. I did find out on my own that a natural product named MelaGel works great.
Hope this helps.
