See also Varicose Veins


A hemorrhoid is a mass of dilated veins in the rectum that cause painful bowel eliminations. It is important to keep the stool soft with fiber and a gentle bowel cleanser like Gentle Move or even cascara sagmda or LBS II if necessary. A little fiber and lots of water may also be helpful. A good treatment to help shrink the hemorrhoids is to mix Golden Salve and white oak bark and apply this blend topically. You can also add very small amounts of essential oils to the Golden Salve and White oak bark mixture. Another option is to apply Vari-Gone Cream topically.

Hemorrhoids are in indication that blood vessels, in general, need toning. It is common for an individual with hemorrhoids to have other varicosities like varicose veins. When this is the case, Vari-Gone capsules can be helpful. Here is a complete list of possible therapies and remedies.
