As an acupuncturist, I've had good results treating hemorrhoids with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Both can help relieve the inflammation, itching, and bleeding, and help shrink the hemorrhoids themselves. Chinese medicine can also work wonders in regulating bowel habits. Hemorrhoids are often caused or aggravated by loose, frequent stools, or by constipation with hard dry stools that cause straining and pressure on the area. I would suggest finding a qualified practitioner in your area and talking with them about your situation and what they can offer. If you'd like help finding someone near you, let me know!
