Remedies for Hemorrhoid Relief

Treatments for hemorrhoid symptoms of anal itching, inflammation, pain, discomfort and bleeding. Information on herbal remedies.

Hemorrhoids are closely related to varicose veins, and may be a result of a condition known as chronic venous insufficiency or CVI.

Arteries bring oxygenated blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Veins located inside the legs return blood that is low in oxygen back to the heart. When veins weaken and lose the ability to pump blood effectively, the condition is called chronic venous insufficiency, or CVI. CVI is also sometimes called chronic venous disease, or CVD.

The valves in your veins may be weak or worn. When these valves are not working well, the blood has difficulty moving upward. Prolonged increased pressure in the veins causes the valves to stretch out, making them unable to close properly. As a result, the blood flows back into other veins and pools in the tissues of the legs, causing swelling. It can also cause small veins in the skin to break.

Constipation can also put pressure on the veins in your anal area. This is why it is recommended for people with hemorrhoids to eat foods with a high fiber content and to take fiber supplements if necessary.

Citrus flavonoids, grape seed extract, various enzymes and the herbs Butchers Broom, Horse Chestnut and Gotu Kola are very helpful for hemorrhoids, varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency. It is also helpful to take Absolute Cleanse.

Vein Support Formula

Hemorrhoids, closely related to varicose veins, are a condition in which the veins around the anus, or in the anal canal, become swollen when stretched under pressure. Hemorrhoids are probably the most common cause of visible blood in the digestive tract, especially blood that appears bright red.

Hemorrhoids are not dangerous, although they can be very annoying and painful. Hemorrhoids are caused by pressure in the rectal veins from standing upright, sitting for long periods, and by poor bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation, and straining at stool.

This formula can be of much help, according to those who have tested this special formula. Reportedly, reduced to complete freedom of pain can be achieved when resting at the end of the day, with more warmth and feeling in the legs and feet.

Many factors increase a person's chances of developing vein problems. These include:

  • Increasing Age

  • Having family members with vein problems or being born with weak vein valves

  • Hormonal changes. These occur during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.

  • Taking birth control pills and other medicines containing estrogen and progesterone also increase the risk of varicose or spider veins

  • Pregnancy. During pregnancy there is a huge increase in the amount of blood in the body. This can cause veins to enlarge. The expanding uterus also puts pressure on the veins. Varicose veins usually improve within 3 months after delivery. A growing number of abnormal veins usually appear with each additional pregnancy

  • Obesity, leg injury, prolonged standing or sitting and other things that weaken vein valves

Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola improves memory and brain function and reduces cellulite, varicose veins, hemorrhoids.

Ayurveda is traditional herbal medicine practiced in India with at least a 2000 year history of use. Femhealth offers two products in this Ayurvedic category: Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera).

Benefits of Gotu Kola - a rich source of vitamin K

  • Wound Healing - Gotu kola strengthens the skin, increases the concentration of antioxidants in wounds, and restores inflamed tissues by increasing blood supply. Gotu kola is used externally for burns, psoriasis and prevention of scar tissue.

  • Venous Insufficiency and Varicose Veins

  • High Blood Pressure - In a study of people with heart disease and high blood pressure experienced a significant reduction in diastolic blood pressure compared to those who took placebo.

  • Anxiety - Triterpenoids have been shown to soothe anxiety and boost mental function in mice.

  • Scleroderma - One study with scleroderma found that gotu kola decreased joint pain, skin hardening, and improved finger movement.

  • Insomnia - Gotu kola has been used to help people with insomnia because of its sedative effects.

  • Improves Mental Clarity - revitalizes the nerves and brain cells

Gotu Kola is best known as a brain herb, or an herb associated with improving memory and/or enhancing brain function. Studies in the U.S. and India reveal that Gotu Kola has the effect of stimulating the brain and improving intelligence capability. Also, Gotu Kola is recommended for treatment of premature aging and dementia.

Another Indian study showed that gotu kola extracts administered over a period of 42 months to normal healthy adults in the 45-50 age group had several benefits: haemoglobin increased by a significant percent, and the mean levels of blood urea and serum acid phosphatase were decreased. Subsequent examinations have revealed that this herb has brought about a steady increase in blood sugar level (statistically significant). A relationship between hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar levels, and mood swings, mental illness, fatigue, depression, confusion and schizophrenic tendencies is well documented. It is believed that the 'memory enhancing' attributes of gotu kola may be attributed to the herb's ability to elevate blood sugar levels markedly.

Gotu Kola promotes healthy connective tissue and is beneficial in the treatment of cellulite which affect women - especially the thighs. Gotu Kola improves our veins, including varicose veins - those bluish blood vessels that pop up on our legs - and hemorrhoids. Vein problems like varicose veins and hemorrhoids can be a symptom of CVI -Chronic Venous Insufficiency. Gotu Kola is effective not only at rebuilding weakened connective tissue in the veins, but also at inhibiting edema - swollen ankles.

Gotu Kola has impressive wound-healing properties and is very helpful for periodontal disease, cellulite, varicose veins, hemorrhoids and bladder infections. Wow! A smart pill that helps get rid of cellulite and varicose veins. Buy some today!

The incidence of ovarian cancer may be reduced with increased consumption of dietary flavonoids, according to researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Harvard School of Public Health. The study looked at food intake surveys and ovarian cancer data from 66,384 participants in the Harvard Nurses' Health Study, which collected health data from 121,700 women over a period of 30 years. This is the first prospective analysis of flavonoid intake and ovarian cancer incidence.

There are 4,000 known flavonoids at this time. Adding citrus flavonoids to your vitamin C is like adding powerful high test racing fuel to your car. Flavonoids destroy free radicals. Flavonoids provide antioxidant protection and suppress inflammation.

Five subclasses of flavonoids:

  • FLAVONOLS: Quercetin, Kaempferol, Myricetin, Isorhamnetin

  • FLAVONES: Luteolin, Apigenin

  • FLAVANONES: Hesperetin, Naringenin, Eriodictyol

  • FLAVAN-3-OLS: (+)-Catechin, (+)-Gallocatechin, (-)-Epicatechin, (-)-Epigallocatechin, (-)-Epicatechin 3-gallate, (-)-Epigallocatechin 3-gallate, Theaflavin, Theaflavin 3-gallate, Theaflavin 3'-gallate, Theaflavin 3,3' digallate, Thearubigins

  • ANTHOCYANIDINS: Cyanidin, Delphinidin, Malvidin, Pelargonidin, Peonidin, Petunidin

The major flavonoids found in citrus fruits are diosmin, hesperidin, rutin, naringin, tangeretin, diosmetin, narirutin, neohesperidin, nobiletin, and quercetin.

Citrus flavonoids and related substances are widely used in Europe to treat diseases of the blood vessels and lymph system, including hemorrhoids, chronic venous insufficiency, leg ulcers, easy bruising, nosebleeds, and lymphedema following breast cancer surgery. These compounds are thought to work by strengthening the walls of blood vessels and have anti-allergy and anti-inflammatory qualities.

Flavonoids are reported to have numerous health benefits. They are the natural pigments in fruits and vegetables. Formerly known as Vitamin P, they enhance absorption of Vitamin C when taken together. Our body cannot produce flavonoids and supplementing is important for good health. They are known to be effective for pain from injuries and are a must for those who bruise because of their abiity to protect and strengthen capillaries.

Flavonoids aid circulation, lower cholesterol and prevent and treat cataracts. Hemorrhoids are reduced using flavonoids.

Rutin is a flavonoid that is structurally similar to quercitin and a broad range of other flavonoids that naturally occur in plant products. Rutin itself has been clinically studied and demonstrated to be of particular interest in its antagonistic effects on cancer cell metabolism. Rutin seems to have a protective effect against the development of cardiovascular disease. Rutin helps those with capillary or venous fragility - easy bruising and a tendency to not heal well.

Rutin seems to possess a preventive effect in diabetes, by slowing the onset of cataract formation, renal complications, and vascular compromise. Rutin seems to be very effective in the treatment of asthma and allergies.

Citrus flavonoids like hesperidin and rutin, taken with at least 1000 mg of Vitamin C, are also effective in relieving menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes.

Accumulated evidence from experimental and epidemiological studies indicates that there is a low risk of degenerative diseases, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cataract, stroke, and especially cancer in people with a high intake of flavonoids.
