The Importance of the Ingredients

The ingredients present in any formula should address strengthening the vascular system. The proper combination should address the weakened state of the vein(s). Without question the most effective products contain Witchazel (or Witch Hazel) as a primary ingredient. This herb has a long tradition of use to treat multiple circulatory conditions including hemorrhoids. Witchazel is known to help Hemorrhoids externally when used as a liquid extract, but is also effective for both internal and external conditions when taken orally; however, proper preparation and usage is essential.

Creams, Ointments & Suppositories - Recommended for pregnant or nursing Mothers and for temporary relief of burning & itching

Running to your local pharmacy to purchase all the latest and greatest creams and ointments may seem like the best place to start, but be aware that many of the most common ointments, creams and suppositories do little to help and many may prolong the healing. Short term relief for long term agony may be the trade-off with some of the topical options for easing your hemorrhoid symptoms.

Surgery - Recommended for extreme cases of hemorrhoids

The most extreme cases of hemorrhoids stem from what is called prolapsed hemorrhoids. These hemorrhoids have grown to the point where they are an external appendage and cause great discomfort. Many suffering with prolapsed hemorrhoids are recommended by their doctor to consider a surgical approach to their suffering. However, there is currently no known cure for hemorrhoids, and docotor's will not guarantee that your hemorrhoids will not return. Typically your doctor will recommend one of the following options:

  • Rubber band ligation or ‘banding'.
  • Scierotherapy, the process where a doctor injects a chemical into your hemorrhoids. The injected chemical obstructs the flow of blood and causes the Hemorrhoid to shrink until it falls off.
  • Coagulation, use such technologies as laser therapy, or electrical current, and may also involve the use of infrared light to burn away the Hemorrhoid.
  • Hemorrhoidectomy, involves removing the hemorrhoid surgically while under local or a general anesthetic.


Treatment Option Cost Time (Days) Permanent
Recovery Time
hemorrhoidectomy $$$$$ 1 Day No 3-4 weeks recovery in bed
Scierotherapy $$$$ 1 Day No 1 week recovery
"Banding" $$$ 1 Day No Removes external hemorrhoids only

In today's economy, many have lost health benefits and can't afford a surgical procedure. Some types of surgery cost upwards of $10,000.
