Dealing with hemorrhoids? Do not want to go to your doctor to get them treated? Well, read on! Here, we are going to cover a few of the ‘quickest’ remedies for eradicating your hemorrhoids once and for all. The best part is that these remedies work for just about everybody!
Simple method, but very effective. With ice, you will be constricting the blood vessels. This helps to reduce swelling as less blood will be able to flow into the area. It is a quick method to apply too. All you need is to add an ice pack (or a packet of frozen vegetables) to the impact area. Make sure it is wrapped in a cloth!
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is probably one of the best natural anti-inflammatories in the world. It can not only reduce the swelling of your hemorrhoids, but also provide you with instant relief from irritation. Just apply the aloe vera gel directly to the impacted area. You can use this method on both internal and external hemorrhoids.
3. Lemon Juice
Next up on our list is lemon juice. This DIY method for dealing with hemorrhoids is probably best for external hemorrhoids, but there is no reason why you can’t use it on external ones. To use this method, soak a ball of cotton in the juice of two lemons. You can then apply this directly to the impacted area. You will feel a slight tingling sensation when you do, but this is going to disappear in mere seconds so it should not be that much of an issue. You are going to need to make sure that you use this treatment every three hours!
4. Almond Oil
This treatment is just for external hemorrhoids only. We do not recommend that you use almond oil for internal hemorrhoids. While it is unlikely that anything will go wrong when you do that, it is just not a recommended treatment. This treatment is applied in much the same way as with the lemon juice. You soak a ball of cotton in some pure almond oil. You then apply it directly to the impacted area. This is a treatment that you are going to want to repeat a couple of times per day.
5. Olive Oil
One of the things that we love about this treatment for hemorrhoids is that you probably already have some olive oil in your home. This works in much the same way as aloe vera. You will be applying the olive oil directly to the hemorrhoids. This will reduce the amount of blood that can flow into them which, in turn, will reduce the amount of swelling. You do not just have to apply the olive oil to the hemorrhoids either! Some people find that this treatment is effective if they eat a teaspoon of olive oil each day.
