The Best Home Remedy for Hemorrhoids – Frozen Potato
For external hemorrhoids, a poultice made from grated potato works as an astringent and soothes pain. Take 2 washed potatoes, cut them into small chunks, and put them into a blender. Process until the potatoes are in liquid form. Add a few teaspoons water if they look dry. Spread the mashed ‘taters into a thin gauze bandage or clean handkerchief, fold in half, and apply to the hemorrhoids for five to ten minutes.
You can also use potatoes as a suppository to help internal hemorrhoids but you should first discuss the method with your physician if you’ve had serious hemorrhoids, abscesses, fissures or other anal disorders.
Cut, peel raw potatoes and fashion a small french fry shaped piece using a paring knife and then put them in the freezer. Place the frozen candles in the anus in the first 3-5 days for just 30 seconds. The following 3-5 days every time you place the potato inside, leave it for half a minute longer.
The potatoes must be of good quality and never germinated or green.
Another popular Russian folk remedy if you prefer not to insert anything in the anus is to take freshly prepared onion juice. For one month, take 1 tsp. 4-5 times a day for 15 minutes before meals.
