Hemorrhoid Cure - Is there a natural remedy?

Posted Sep 06 2009 10:13pm 1 Comment
In a recent study on 60 people with various degrees of prolapsed hemorrhoids, researchers found that an ointment containing the natural remedy Smartweed gave relief to 50% of the sufferers. Smartweed, also known as Pepper Plant, contains natural adrenaline and hamamelis that cause the blood vessels to constrict and the piles to shrink. There are many other products on the market that are sold as a hemorrhoid cure but do they work?

Let's have a look at what each of them do for the body, how they intend to treat hemorrhoids or piles, and raw truth on most of them.

Creams & Ointments

The first popular type of product that sufferers buy hoping for a hemorrhoid cure is a cream or ointment. These types of products are applied to the outer rectal area and are aimed at soothing the piles. They contain ingredients that help to relax the tissue so that it does not bulge out so much so the hemorrhoid will be less likely to flare up. Some creams contain steroid preparations which weaken the skin.

These are great for some temporary hemorrhoid relief but unfortunately it rarely provides a lasting cure. Your hemorrhoids are practically guaranteed to flare up again.

Suppositories

This next type of product is suppositories. One is inserted inside the back passage (rectum) which has a lubricating effect. They can help to relieve the pain, swelling, itch and irritation of internal piles. They should not be used for longer than 7 days as they can cause damage to anal tissue with longer term use. They work for some but not for others.

Medication

In some cases hemorrhoids are caused by increased pressure in the veins. Some doctors treatit with blood pressure pills to regulate the blood pressure. Once there is less pressure the vein may shrink and become less of a problem. All drugs have side effects and many prefer to find natural remedy.

More drastic treatments

None of these solutions tend to provide a true hemorrhoid cure and people turn to more drastic measures such as ligation (banding) or surgery. Ligation is where elastic bands are applied to the hemorrhoids to cut off the blood supply and it withers and drops off.

Surgical removal (hemorrhoidectomy) tends to be reserved for very severe cases as many complain about intolerable pain and discomfort for some time afterwards and even leakage after bowel movements.

New Natural Hemorrhoid Cure

Fortunately there is a new totally safe natural hemorrhoid cure that has already been tried out by hundreds of people. It amazing because it can work in just a few days. No wonder it is called the H Miracle System. The system includes basically everything you need to cure your piles once and for all. You can even get a free report. Click Here
