Using Herbs for treatment of Hemorrhoids

30 Jun

If you suffer from hemorrhoids and you want to avoid drugs and chemichals ,these herbs maybe the solution!

You can try these:

Lesser celandine (Ranunculus ficaria)

In Greece it is called zohadohorto, fikaria, sikoriza, sfourdakla or sfourdakela.
Part used is its root and it is collected in May and June. It acts as an astringent.
Its Greek name zohadohorto derives from zohada which means haemorrhoid because
the herb is used to cure haemorrhoids. It can be used internally or externally as a very
effective ointment. It is also an effective astringent.
Lesser celandine can be combined with plantago, calendula and agrimony to cure haemorrhoids internally.

Remedy is prepared as an infusion. Pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoonfuls of dried herb and leave it infuse for 10 minutes. Filter and drink 3 times per day. Tincture should be taken in a dose of 2-4 ml, 3 times a day.
If it is used as an ointment it should be prepared with vaseline base.

White Oak Bark

the active ingredients are tannin and quercin. Quercin is similar in effect to salicin (natural aspirin) and is used along with bioflavinoids to strengthen the capillaries and veins. White oak bark also contains ample amounts of calcium, manganese, potassium and magnesium. It is particularly good for stopping internal bleeding.
-Boil 1 teaspoon of White Oak bark in a cup of water. Drink this filtrate once daily for a month.
The symptoms of hemorrhoids are resolved in a month.
– Pour 1lt=1000ml upon 3 spoonfuls of dried bark ofOak branches and  leave it
for 10-15 min, covered,in order to release its substances.
Moisture a piece of cotton with this infusion and apply it every night on your sensitive area.
The rind of Oak branches is very styptic and healing


It is known for its ability to stop bleeding, and is used as a natural hemorrhoids remedy.
You can drink the extract of pilewort directly with tea or apply it as ointment to your
external skin.

Comfrey (Symphytum officinale).

Comfrey is rich in allantoin, a wound-healing chemical that is anti-inflammatory, stimulates
the immune system and hastens the formation of new skin. You can moisten powdered
comfrey with vegetable oil and apply the paste. Or you can pound the leaf to soften the
fuzzy hairs it’s covered with and apply the leaf itself, topically. You don’t have to worry
about washing it off, as the residue will come off the next time you shower

Plantain (Plantago, various species).

Plantain has a strong folk reputation as a hemorrhoid remedy. This herb contains allantoin, the same soothing compound found in comfrey. If I were caught in the bush with a hemorrhoid and without my Tucks, I’d create a poultice and apply it to the afflicted area.

Psyllium (Plantago ovata)

Psyllium works by absorbing water in the gut and swelling considerably, which adds bulk to
stool and triggers the muscle contractions we experience as “the urge.” If you use psyllium,
make sure you drink enough fluids. You should get at least eight (eight-ounce) glasses of
water or juice a day. And watch how you react to this herb if you have allergies. If allergic symptoms develop after you take it once, don’t use it again.

Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana).

Witch hazel is a soothing, cooling astringent that can help relieve hemorrhoidal pain and
itching. But you really don’t have to spend extra for a brand name. Simply make a compress using witch hazel, which is available at pharmacies for a much lower price. Just tuck a fresh compress in place whenever you feel the need for a little soothing. Then forget it’s there and
go about your business.


Chamomile soothes irritated tissue, reducing redness and itching. Boil chamomile in water,
then leave it for some time to get cold (I mean room temperature not freeze) and moisture cotton with it and leave it on the sensitive area for the night. It is anti -inflammating and relieving!

Aloe (Aloe vera).

Aloe gel is astringent and helps heal wounds. You might try applying it topically to the anal area. When ingested, aloe juice is laxative. India’s Ayurvedic physicians suggest drinking a half-cup of aloe juice three times a day until hemorrhoid flare-ups have cleared. You can buy aloe juice at most health food stores

Butcher’s broom (Ruscus acu-leatus).

This woody herb has a long history as a treatment for venous problems like hem-orrhoids and varicose veins. The plant contains chemicals called ruscogenins, which have anti-inflammatory and vasoconstricting properties. I’d try five rounded teaspoons of root in a cup of boiling water for internal consumption; you can sweeten the tea with honey. And for topical application, I’d use a tincture of the herb made with alcohol.

Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum).

The bark of this tree contains several chemicals that help treat hemorrhoids. Aesculin and
aescin strengthen blood vessel walls, reducing the risk of further hemorrhoids. Other
chemicals in this herb have anti-inflammatory benefits.
