Hemorrhoids – My 2 day quick fixSean
Some time ago, before herbalism entered my life 🙂 I acquired a nasty case of hemorrhoids that flared up during a 6 hour drive to Phoenix. I went to the local Walgreens or similar and picked me up some ointment and wipes. The ointment is basically a mixture of oils and jellys. This is to cover the inflamed tissue so that you feel better, and if the tissue isn’t being irritated, then they can shrink down in time. The wipes were full of Witch Hazel extract. Witch Hazel is an astringent that can help in shrinking hemorrhoids. Astringents work like you putting some lemon in your mouth. You will suck in your face and make a that puckering look. Same thing your trying to do with Hemorrhoids is suck them back in.
Lets shorten this story now. Basically that stuff i bought just helped me not shoot myself. When i got home i got on the internet and looked up some alternative information. I made a doctor appointment which was only a few days out. Until that time I took baths with a huge amount of Epsom Salt in them. This was a really good one, and i enjoyed that a bunch. When I got to the doctor, he didn’t really want anything to do with my situation and wrote me a prescription for some suppositories. After my 5 days of suppositories the hemorrhoids went away and i was better.
Years later and a few days ago I started getting a small sharp pain during the #2 process and there was blood in my stool. Well, blood in the stool can be from a various amount of things including internal hemorrhoids. Because of the sharp pain i was sure of the internal hemorrhoids, but could have something else so i took some herbs for bleeding. When some hemorrhoid pains came on I decided to take a real approach to the issue.
I went to the herb shelf and pulled out the herbs for a Hemorrhoid Bolus. A Bolus is basically an herbal suppository, and i know that the last thing anyone wants to do is stick something up there butt but is really a top treatment for hemorrhoid remedies. However, if or when you get hemorrhoids and feel that uncomfortable pain, I’m sure you will do what works. The bolus is a formula of ground herbs and bound in cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is a healing substance in itself, but also is solid at room temp, but will melt at over 98 degrees (your body temp).
The Dimmak Hemorrhoid Bolus contains herbs like: Witch Hazel, Bayberry, Goldenseal, Horse Chestnut, Comfrey, and Slippery Elm.
Witch Hazel is an astringent and we already discussed it earlier
Bayberry is also an astringent in its own case, but brings blood through the area to heal areas. Bayberry has an affinity for healing tissue and veins, you can probably see the connect here.
Goldenseal clears heat (anti-inflammatory) and also an astringent. Both of these are beneficial. In addition to these herbs, Goldenseal is an overall tonifyer of anything it touches, and happens to be able to contract blood vessels
Horse Chestnut is an anti-inflammatory and stops bleeding, im sure you see the connection there
Comfrey has cooling, soothing, cell regenerating, and nourishing properties.
Slippery Elm is a binder that provides lubrication, cooling properties, and helps bind the bolus
All of this combined makes for a fine bolus. Each order comes with about 10 bolus’ and they are about .5-.75 thick and under an inch long. The dosage is 1-2 nightly as needed.
On to my specific story, night one was a full dose 2 bolus’. Simply take them and run them under hot water quickly and insert. Although a little uncomfortable at first (not because of the insertion, but because of foreign object in your colon) until it breaks down. I went to bed and instantly felt better the next day. I backed down to a single bolus application for the next 2 days. Now basically back to a small annoyance, which is great. I will continue a single bolus for another 3 days.
When you have hemorrhoids going to the bathroom is scary part of the day, feeling better fast is a great thing.
