How Does Aloe Vera Cure Hemorrhoids?
Aloe Vera has astringent properties that help heal burns and open wounds such as
those that are found in thrombosed hemorrhoids. These effects are largely credited
to the presence of compounds in the plant that promote faster healing and better
health for the skin tissues.
Aloe vera also provides instant relief from the pain and discomforts that most hemorrhoid
sufferers look for in any product. The succulence of the aloe vera also provides
a soothing and cooling effect, and therefore eliminates pain and itching, when applied
directly to the affected area. The fresh plant or gel is best applied directly to
the affected area to get the double benefits of instant relief while contributing
to the cure of the condition.
How To Use Aloe Vera?
There are a number of ready to drink aloe vera supplements in the form of capsules,
juices and gels.
However, if you want to be sure that the ingredients are all natural, you can do
it yourself at home and enjoy savings as the ingredients come much cheaper than those
You can in fact directly place the succulent leaf of the aloe vera directly into
your anus where the affected area is located. Be sure to wash the fresh leaf thoroughly
with distilled water, trim off the thorns, peel it on one side, bend the leaf with
the peeled side outward and slip it in your anus. This will provide instant relief
from pain and itching and also stops bleeding.
Homemade Aloe Vera Cream
• You can also prepare an aloe vera gel by pounding the leaves to pulp and add essential
oils of your choice to the pounded leaves.
• Mix the aloe vera and oils until they become creamy.
• Apply the gel directly on the affected area.
• This will provide instant relief and also contribute to the healing of the skin

Home Made Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe Vera juice is also good for softening your stools for better management of hemorrhoid
treatment. Having soft stools will not interfere with the healing wounds and eliminates
the possibility of developing new fissures in the anus, which might aggravate the
situation and reverse the healing process.
Aloe vera juice can be easily extracted from the succulent leaves of the plant. To
improve the taste, you can add sweeteners or your favorite fruit juice.
Consuming large amounts of aloe vera juice may result to intestinal spasms or stomach
pain. It is important to read dosage labels before taking aloe vera supplement.
