Many people prefer to treat the distressing condition of hemorrhoids with natural remedies. Firstly, the condition must be properly diagnosed by a doctor, and if natural remedies fail then the appropriate medication must be obtained. A lot of sufferers find that herbs for hemorrhoids are the answer.
Several different applications of herbs for hemorrhoids have grown up over the years. Witch Hazel is one such popular choice, even suggested by some medical professionals. Barbers are familiar with its properties, as they use it on cuts, making the blood vessels contract. Applying Witch Hazel with a cotton ball is recommended for external hemorrhoids, especially where bleeding occurs. Anything cold, even plain old water can help to relive the pain of hemorrhoids, so you'll feel the benefits of putting a Witch Hazel bottle in an ice bucket. Soak a sterile cotton ball with the Witch Hazel and gently dab against the hemorrhoids until the coldness wears off. Keep repeating the process.
Another product in the herbs for hemorrhoids range contains Japanese Pagoda Tree extract. This is said to attack the actual causes of the hemorrhoids and to permanently stop itching, burning and pain. It's also claimed that it will strengthen the veins and help the vascular circulation, thus preventing hemorrhoids in the future. Other herbs for hemorrhoids include Horse Chestnut, Butcher's Broom, and Bayberry. A strong, warm tea containing Yarrow can be applied, again with a cotton ball. Aloe Vera is recommended for both burning and pain. Other herbs for hemorrhoids can be taken, either in the form of tea or in capsules.
