Aloe vera has been used forever by our ancestors and all the generations throughout until today, because of the many various healing powers it has. It's been used externally as a lotion or a cream and internally as a beverage. Amongst all its different uses.
It can be also be used for its anti-inflammatory properties, anti-allergy properties and or anti-bacterial properties. This is exactly the properties that interest us with our hemorrhoids. With the combination of the three properties all in one, it is exactly what is needed to put on our hemorrhoids to cure them.
The plant originates from North Africa.
It looks like a dry desert plant with thick pointed shaped leaves that are full of thick aloe sap.
The leaves are full of little teeth that run all along the leaves, which can hurt you pretty badly if you touch them. If you look carefully at the picture you can see these teeth running along the leaf.
These leaves are usually grayish greenish in color. It grows pretty easily in most climates, and fortunately it needs very little to no maintenance at all.
I have a plant in my own garden, that's how easy it is to grow as I consider myself a pretty useless gardener.
I used to break the bottom part of the leaf in half and put the aloe gel directly on the hemorrhoid. This gel is completely clear and odorless. Alternatively if you don't have a plant at home you can buy aloe gel over the counter in the pharmacies.
I have used aloe gel with my personal hemorrhoids and I have found that aloe gel to work well on small hemorrhoidal problems, but as soon as the hemorrhoids are a little more complicated.
Also it takes a lot longer for the hemorrhoid to heal with the gel.
I found it to be a slow and long process in healing, something that never seems to end.
Another problem is the soothing of the pain was only momentarily. The pain returned soon after using the aloe gel.
Therefore in conclusion I would certainly use an alternative medication for hemorrhoids. Something that works faster and something that is more effective.
