The alkalizing bath does nothing for my hemorrhoids. I think you attribute just about every ailment to too much acidity or lack of alkaline minerals. Hemorrhoids is mostly a mechanical problem: too much pressure on the veins causes them to weaken and stretch. Sometimes you also get a blood clot in them too. Being constipated, being pregnant, sitting for too long (especially on the toilet) or in such a way that it cuts off the blood flow to your legs or rump of any size, an overloaded liver which causes the blood flow in your big, medium, or large rump to slow down is the cause of hemorrhoids. Ask any woman who did not get hemorrhoids until they got pregnant. Did they just get acidic after they got pregnant?
