1. The Peterson Group Truth or Fiction Review: Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids

In June, 2013, an estimated 300 citizens suffer from hemorrhoid in Jakarta, Indonesia alone. In the United States, three-quarters of the population suffers from the symptoms every year. The average age for patients is from 45 – 60 years old but this medical condition can happen to anyone. Its symptoms include swollen anus and distended rectum, painless bright red blood covering the stool, on toilet paper or the bowl. Protruding hemorrhoid can also happen which are mostly painful. It can easily be caused by excessive rubbing and cleaning of the anus as well.

Recent studies have also shown that people with hemorrhoids tend to have higher-than-normal resting muscle in the anal activity.

Due to the embarrassing state hemorrhoid patients undergo, they tend to seek alternative medicines which can cure this infection without going through the scrutiny of doctors, nurses and pharmacists who are aware of the treatments being used.

Complementary, Alternative and Integrative Medicine (CAM) proves to be a good second option for hemorrhoid treatment. Although no alternative medicines have proven effective against hemorrhoids, certain remedies should relieve pain and provide relief and comfort. Self-treatment or taking fraudulent and untested medicines can worsen the condition.

Here are some suggested treatments for you to use:

1.            Aloe Socotrina

This is used to treat irritation, violent itching and burning anus caused by constantly rubbing or cleaning of the anus.

2.            Arsenic Album

This is used to relieve the burning sensation in the rectal area. Restlessness may also be experienced as well as pain from even the slightest exertion. Patients’ complaints may include fear and agitation.

3.            Witch Hazel Ointment

This remedy is made from the leaves and bark of a plant called Hamamelis virginiana, also known as witch hazel. It is not taken internally but applied topically to the anal area in the form of witch hazel distilled liquid, ointment, compress or medicated pads (such as Tucks). Witch hazel is thought to decrease the bleeding of hemorrhoids by acting as an astringent. It may also relieve pain, itching and swelling associated with hemorrhoids.

4.            Fiber

Also recommended by medical practitioners and doctors, fiber can soften stool and relieve much pain caused by straining and strength exertion. Fiber is also studied to relieve pain, itching and discomfort.

5.            French Maritime Pine Bark Extract

According to reviews, French maritime pine bark extract is a source of flavonoids, catechins, proanthocyanidins, and phenolic acids, compounds thought to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Further studies show that this remedy can improve comfort and lift hemorrhoids for as fast as seven days.
