    Witch hazel. A tcm practitioner also told me that if you eat five grapefruits a day for two weeks your hemorrhoids would clear up.

    Five grapefruits a day for two weeks!?!? I like grapefruits, but that's a lot! Lol.

    Yup! But it's a better alternative to surgery IMO. :)

    I also read that you can cut a small piece of potato and stick it up your bum over night for a few nights. I'd put cypress oil on it first too.

    Witch hazel if they are swollen and itchy.. but if they are extremely sore and bleeding a lot.. it might burn..
    I used ice too..

    But changing your diet can really help the healing and reduce the inflammation.
    Cutting gluten helped me a whole lot, and also eating lots and lots of raw foods..

    Ive heard of the potato slice thing, like the other lady said.. I've also heard of doing it with garlic.. I did the garlic and well, it hurt putting it and and hurt getting it out. But it helped some.

    Raw garlic is anti-inflammatory and its a natural antibiotic.. I ate lots of it.. even though it made my breath smell.
    And probiotics would help as well for general gut health..

    Either use damp family cloth or disposable baby wipes to clean with after a bowel movement, it's less irritating than TP

    I've been using Tucks pads that have witch hazel in them. I guess I need stronger stuff. I think I'd get sick eating that much grapefruit!

    Thanks for the tips. I've been working on cutting down on gluten, I guess this is just another reason to do so!
