Hemorrhoid Tea & Tea Bags for Hemorrhoids
What are Hemorrhoids? [hemorrhoid tea]
Hemorrhoid tea: Hemorrhoids are uncomfortable growths that swell up and develop in the anal canal. Although they are often associated with pain, usually this problem is not regarded as being serious. The causes behind the development of these growths still remain unknown, however, it is believed that pressure that is put on the veins of the anal canal is considered the most common cause. Diarrhea, straining, and constipation are likely causes behind these pressures as well as being over-weight or pregnant. The symptoms that result from this condition are pain, itching, and sometimes bleeding during bowel movements.
Can Hemorrhoid Tea Treat Hemorrhoids?
Absolutely! There are many types of tea you can use, either by drinking, putting the tea bag on the external hemorrhoid, or both. In the case of internal hemorrhoids, just drinking the tea is the only option. The herbs in the hemorrhoid tea treat many of the hemorrhoid symptoms. Even Cayenne pepper works! Make the tea as normal and drink. When the tea bag has cooled a little, place it on the affected area for about 20 minutes. It needs to be hot, but don’t burn yourself! You can even follow-up with an ice pack for another 15-20 minutes. The combination of hot/cold will strengthen the veins. Hemorrhoid tea gives you two ways to treat hemorrhoids! Tea is a great way to treat hemorrhoids naturally and is more effective than over the counter medications.
Best Herbs and Other Natural Ingredients to Make Hemorrhoid Tea
Here is a list of what to look for in your tea. These are the best ways to treat hemorrhoid pain and discomfort.
Horse chestnut helps reduce blood vessel permeability and can be useful for both varicose veins and hemorrhoids, or piles. Piles is another name for hemorrhoids. Studies done in Europe found that horse-chestnut helped to increase blood flow, strengthen connective tissue, tighten up veins, and decrease redness and swelling. Great for making hemorrhoid tea!
Cayenne pepper can be useful for facilitating blood flow, as hemorrhoids are characteristic of sluggish blood flow in the area of the veins in and around the anus. On a side note, cayenne pepper will also help reduce the risk of a heart attack. Nobody thinks about this one, but it is essential in a hemorrhoid tea!
White Oak Bark
Swelling and throbbing can be reduced by the inclusion of the tonic herb, white oak bark; its bitter and astringent qualities have been valued for centuries and its ability to tighten tissues and strengthen blood vessels. Another great addition to hemorrhoid tea.
Witch hazel offers further restorative properties for the tissue lining and helps reduce bleeding. This plant has been used to treat hemorrhoids for centuries and is in most hemorrhoid treatments. Another great one for hemorrhoid tea, especially if you have bleeding hemorrhoids.
Aloe vera is known for its anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties which help to reduce the itching, inflammation and irritation of hemorrhoids. It is used to treat both internal and external hemorrhoids. I wouldn’t add this to a hemorrhoid tea, I just added it for its usefulness.
With its soothing and inflammation reducing actions, chamomile is a wonderful home remedy for treating bleeding hemorrhoids. Chamomile tea can be used for rinsing the area, especially after bowel movements when the wound and bleeding could be particularly severe. Chamomile tea bags too can be used as a poultice for pressing on the hemorrhoid so that the inflamed nerves are encouraged to shrink. Not essential for hemorrhoid tea but if you want to make some to clean the area, this is how you do it.
