Get em gone

Hemorrhoids can be very painful, I know from experience I've had about 8 in the past year and boy are they bloody. But I've gotten rid of them the same way every time... Bananas.
I know it sounds crazy but I just chomp down on a bunch of bananas and those bad boys clear the hemorrhoid right up, you can also rub the peels around the hemorrhoid area, I know that sounds crazy too but it really will work. Look it up.

The simple things work best!!!

I have had a Lima bean sized hemorrhoid for about 3 days now. It was the worst experience that I can recall. I used prep h, proctocal, and several other prescription medicines. NOTHING helped.

I scheduled an appointment with my GI specialist today because something had to be done!!! It hurt to even tip toe around. The only thing that BARELY soothed the pain was running shower water over it or sitting in a bath.

So I sat in a moderately hot bath for about 20 minutes. When I got up I felt so relieved. I looked in the tub and saw clots of blood everywhere (sorry for the graphic description). The hemorrhoid popped thank God!!! When I wiped myself, blood was all over the tissue. I feel amazing right now. Please don't overlook the simple remedies. God bless.

Stop the itch

When the itch is unbearable, dip a wash cloth in hot water. As hot as you can take it, then press it on the itchy area. This works incredible for any type of itch. Hemorrhoids, Poison Ivy or whatever. A blow dryer also works excellent. Just know your limitations and don't burn your skin.

Vapo Rub Vicks

Boil water pour it in a bucket. Do Not fill the bucket all the way to the top. Fill in the bucket half way with the hot water&add about one table spoon of VapoRub to the hot water & stir it in. Just sit on the bucket for 10 15 minutes or as long as you want. It will feel cool when getting up,its a great relief. I hope this helps,it worked wonders for me.

Long term cure for hemmorhoids

It may be painful but the way I cure hemorrhoids is to simply push the protruding arteries back into place.
A permanent, yet dangerous cure that lasts for life is to prick the hemorrhoid with a needle and let it bleed for many[2-5]minutes. The hemorrhoid will never come back. (my father received that treatment from a doctor).

Hemorrhoids be gone (2 MINS. FLAT)

This will be painful, but it is well worth the 2 minutes of pain that you will have to endure.
Take a warm bath to relax then stand up and apply ABSORBINE JR directly to the hemorrhoid. It will begin to burn, then it will feel as if there is a freezer in your back side this will last approx. three hours. This has worked for me and countless people that I have shared this secret with. You can find ABSORBINE JR in the sore muscles and aching pain isle.

Real cure

I went to the doctors on a Friday he said surgery was the only way to fix my hemorrhoid. It was a big one. So he scheduled surgery for the following Monday. I was not looking forward to being cut, but I would do anything to mitigate the pain. This was a very painful thing to have. I stopped by my parents to ask how my father did when he had this same operation. They warned me about surgery. My mom gave me something she got from the health food store that she said worked for my father. I took two pills and by the next morning something changed. The pain was gone but it still was not right. By Sunday night I was completely well. This miracle pill is called Collinsonia Root. I would have 3 flareups over the next 2 years and as soon as I felt it coming on I would take the pills and it would go away. I have not had any problems for the last 4 years. This is the only thing from a health food store that has ever worked for me.

Sitz bath & Anucort suppositories

This will work with even bad situations: Take a sitz bath twice a day (once in morning and then evening). A sitz bath consists of a container of warm water that you place on the toilet and sit down on. It has a thick plastic bag with a tube that you fill with hot water which you hang and use to keep the water you are sitting in warm. Do this for 20 minutes twice a day. When you are through and dry, use an Anucort suppository (doctor prescribed) with Cortizone 10 cream (use liberally). A surgeon gave this remedy to me and it saved me from having to have hemorrhoid surgery.

Avoid them

Increase your fiber intake and make sure you drink a lot of water everyday. Your body needs the fiber along with water to properly digest your food and make for soft stools. I use a combination of half pound psyllium husks (health food store), half pound of wheat bran, box of rice bran and quarter pound flax seed (ground with coffee grinder) and mix all together. Looks like sawdust and has no taste to it. Sprinkle a level teaspoon on two meals a day to greatly increase your fiber intake and stay regular. Do this to keep the plumbin' hummin'!

U V Light/Heat

Sit on the side of a tanning bed. The heat helps with the pain and shrinks the hemorrhoids.
