Get Hemorrhoid Relief from Herbal Remedies

Here are four different herbs that can give you hemorrhoid relief and help to get rid of your hemorrhoids. Using these herbs is a convenient and cost effective way to treat your hemorrhoid symptoms.

Use these herbs just long enough to give you hemorrhoid relief. Once you see that your symptoms have disappeared, stop using these herbs. Using herbs longer than necessary will make you less sensitive to the power of these herbs, if you have to use them again.

Comfrey root powder

Comfrey powder comes from an herbal root that has plentyof allantoin. This herb is a powerful acting herb that is anti-inflammatory and stimulates the formation of new skin. Itcan also cause hemorrhoids that are outside on the anus toshrink and pull back. This makes comfrey powder an effective hemorrhoid remedy.

Here's how to use it.

Buy the powder and not the liquid. Make a paste by mixingit with olive, fish, or flaxseed oil. Apply the paste directlyonto your anus and surrounding area. You can apply it atnight and your morning shower will remove it.

Fresh comfrey leaves or roots are the best to use. However,you can get precut and dried comfrey root and leaves from a health food or herb store. If you use the dried leaves, you can put them into a coffee grinder to create a powder. Use this powder to create a paste with oils.

Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola is an Indian herb that is a hemorrhoid remedy.Use an extract that has 70% triterpenic acid since this is theactive ingredient.

Take 30 mg of Gotu Kola 3 time a day.Gotu kola extract reduces pain, swelling, fatigue, andsensation of heaviness from hemorrhoids.

Horse Chestnut

Horse chestnut comes from the bark of a tree and has beenfound to be useful in treating hemorrhoids. It contains thechemicals "aesculin" and "aescin", which strengthen your blood vessels and which help to reduce hemorrhoids. It also helps to reduce inflamed areas.

Here's how to use it.

You can make a tea and apply it directly to yourhemorrhoids. However, do not drink the tea since itcontains tannin, which tightens mucus and tissue and wouldcause constipation. Use it in powder form and mix it with oil to produce a paste and apply it to your anus area.

Plantain Herb

Plantain also has plenty of allantoin just like comfrey rootpowder.

Here's how to use it.

Use it just like comfrey powder by mixing it with oil andapplying it directly to your anus.

You can also combine equal parts of the plantain andcomfrey powder. If you only have plantain leaves, putthem in a coffee grinder to create a powder. Now you canmake a mixture with oil and both of these herbs.
