Anyone who has ever experienced hemorrhoids can attest to the long lasting pain and discomfort. Over the years I have discovered a few things that work well and those that do not. The best advice I can offer is to deal with it early. Don’t wait for piles to form or the pain to drive you on for answers. Deal with this issue at the first sign of discomfort.
Prevention is always the best medicine. Constipation is the leading cause of Hemorrhoids. Pushing hard matter out damages the tissue around the rectum. Over time the elasticity of the skin is broken down allowing the vessels to float to the surface where the hard matter passing over them wrecks pain and havoc. Do whatever it takes to keep your bowels soft and moving well. The Lower Bowel Formula #1 is an Excellent Herbal Aid for backed up bowels.
Another cause for Hemorrhoids is a poor food program. Calcium is an important nutrient for healthy tissue. Varicose veins as well as Hemorrhoids are intensified when the body is lacking a good usable source of Calcium.
Avoiding foods that leach calcium from the system is the first step in building up the body. Stay away from all processed foods, especially sugar and white flour products. Get outside into the sunshine whenever possible. This is your best source of Vitamin D, and it’s free. See the Calcium Information Sheet for more great tips.
BF&C Tincture & Salve for Hemorrhoids
One of the best herbal aids for strengthening tissue is the BF&C (Bone Flesh & Cartilage) formula. This formula contains the nutrients that can knit the body back together. Suggested dose: 1 teaspoon of the tincture taken in water or juice three times a day. Apply the Salve to the affected area after bathing and following each movement. I’ve seen great improvement within the first week. This is not a quick fix but a healing which takes time.
Pain Suggestions: The G-Nervine Salve is helpful at calming the fired up nerves following any movement. Applying a finger full of the salve after each movement can calm the pain.
Try inserting a finger of “Red Potato” into the rectum to calm the pain. This has proven very effective.
