As an ex sufferer of hemorrhoids I once found myself in a situation where I felt that everything I tried failed. Nothing worked for me for a long time and I was left feeling demoralized and doomed. I was at a point where I was willing to do anything to get rid of my hemorrhoids once and for all.

When I reflect on the tough times I went through while suffering from hemorrhoids, I realize that I learnt so much about hemorrhoids. The purpose of this article is to give you an insight into what I found worked well for me and some things that didnt work quite so well.

Many of the hemorrhoid solutions I tried came with horrible side effects. One personal example of a painful side effect I experienced is when I was using creams and gels to cure hemorrhoids. These were amongst the very first treatments I tried and they definitely didnt work for me (thats not to say they wont work for you). Most creams, gels and lotions work by focusing on inflammation reduction of the hemorrhoids. This reduces pain and the hemorrhoid causes less irritation. Initially doing this worked for me but after a couple of days I started to experience a stinging and burning sensation. This pain eventually escalated and became unbearable forcing me to stop using the cream. If you decide that you do want to use a gel, cream or lotion, I suggest you make sure you get a list of good testimonials before doing so because in my case they really complicated the situation. Creams can sometimes work well when combined with other techniques.

Surgery (for hemorrhoid removal) is generally only used once all other options have been exhausted. The main reasons why hemorrhoid surgery is not as popular as it used to be are that it can be very expensive (US$1200 upwards) and that it can be very painful. Fortunately I managed to cure my hemorrhoids without using surgery. Many of my friends have had hemorrhoid surgery however and I have seen first hand how difficult and time consuming the recovery period can be. Some people I know have been almost unable to move for over 5 weeks after having hemorrhoidectomies. Many doctors agree that hemorrhoid surgery should be a last resort this is one of the main reasons. If you have tried everything and hemorrhoid surgery is your only option left, ensure you prepare yourself for a long painful recovery time.

I eventually cured hemorrhoids naturally without the need for surgery or using creams. One of the things I love about natural cures for hemorrhoids is that they work to fight the underlying cause of hemorrhoids rather than focusing on curing the symptoms of hemorrhoids. This actually works faster to treat the hemorrhoids and in some cases results can be seen in as little as just 48 hours. As far as cost goes, natural hemorrhoid cures are by far the cheapest option. I have recommended natural cures to hundreds of friends and acquaintances and have seen fantastic results for almost everyone that tried them.
