Apple Cider Vinegar:
An Effective Natural Hemorrhoid Cure?
Family members have long raved about the effectiveness of drinking a glass of water (8 oz) with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed in to lose weight. But many also vouch for it as a cure for even their worst bleeding hemorrhoids as well.
Others apply apple cider vinegar topically directly on the swollen hemorrhoid. Whether applying it externally or swallowing it, people around the world celebrate it as a powerful natural hemorrhoid cure.
To get rid of hemorrhoids, many recommend a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water taken with lunch and dinner. Some also have it with breakfast. To lessen the taste of the vingear, try flavoring the solution with honey. The apple cider vinegar should be raw and unfiltered, if possible. You can find this at your local health food store.
Applying Apple Cider Vinegar TopicallyTo apply the apple cider vinegar topically, add several drops to a cotton swab. After bathing and drying the anal area, gently dab the hemorrhoid with the cotton swab. Don't overdo it; the area should remain dry.
The acidity of the solution may cause some initial stinging, but this should subside quickly. You can dilute the apple cider vinegar by mixing it with water before applying it topically if the full strength causes stinging. Many, however, experience a cooling sensation and quick relief from pain.
You can apply the apple cider vinegar this way topically 3 to 4 times a day to soothe the itching and pain of hemorrhoids that are in a state of thrombosis. Some also recommend applying it topically before retiring at night.
Within a few days, existing hemorrhoids will begin to shrink. Continue applying the solution until they disappear. It may take 2 to 3 weeks for them to shrink completely.
