How to Get Rid of Hemorrhoids

Many suffer from hemorrhoids. I used to be one of them but no more.

I learned how to get rid of these annoying hemorrhoids with an inexpensive, commonly found spice available in any grocery store (although that’s not where I recommend you get it).

As I mentioned on the home page, I discovered that 3 out of 4 Americans will suffer from hemorrhoids in their lifetime. So, this is more commonly problematic than people are willing to admit.

I understand. It’s embarrassing to talk about hemorrhoids. Our culture constantly has jokes swirling around about hemorrhoid issues.

That said, many find that going to doctors does help, but hemorrhoids come back. Why? In a word diet.

The western diet is the cause. Many westerners and now easterners too have adopted the processed food lifestyle.

Western health problems are then inevitable. So, diet is a big cause of hemorrhoids, but is there a hemorrhoid cure? There is. I know a secret.

I know perhaps the secret of how to eliminate your hemorrhoids. This hemorrhoid remedy is truly the best hemorrhoid treatment or cure I’ve found. It works. Period.

How to Treat Hemorrhoids

I know how to treat hemroids (deliberately misspelled due to SEO needs). Now, I’m not a licensed doctor. I’m not an alternative health naturopathic doctor or a master herbalist either.

I have been studying medicinal herbs for over 20 years but more as an enthusiast than as someone in training.

I’ve had a number of health incidents hit me during those past 20 years and I always look to herbs first and it’s helped me a lot. I’ve had a serious ear infection, a damaged liagment in my shoulder, a damaged knee (ACL) and other issues that herbs have helped with.

Okay, enough preamble. Here is the all-natural way or answer to the question of how to eliminate hemorrhoids: cayenne pepper. Stay with me.How to Get Rid of Hemorrhoids

I know it’s bit of a surprise, but it’s the truth.

Cayenne pepper is not unknown to medical researchers, nor certainly to master herbalists and other health afficionados. I call cayenne pepper “the king of the herbs” at my website at For a very comprehensive overview of this remarkable spice, you should visit that website.

For now, though, I can tell you about some of its remarkable health benefits and my own story with how I cured myself using cayenne pepper.

First and quickly, let me tell you simple story with my hemorrhoid problem. I developed a prolapsed hemorrhoid around May or June 2003.

It itched constantly and bled occasionally, although it bled more and more until I got disgusted enough to do something about it.

It got bigger and bigger too. It was embarrassing. Having had such first-hand experiences with cayenne, I knew I needed to get off of my lazy butt and start taking it more regularly.

Let’s be honest, cayenne is hot. I never liked that and I don’t particularly like spicy food.

Still, I started taking it daily and on my honor,in two days, my prolapsed hemorrhoid disappeared — it was completely gone!

Cayenne is amazing. How do you take it: you drink it. It was the way recommended by famed master herbalist and naturopathic doctor Dr. John R. Christopher.

He called it “cayenne pepper tea” but that is really a misnomer.

Some tips you need to know:

Here’s the directions on how to do that:

  • Put 1/4th of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper into an 8-ounce glass of very warm water, the warmer the better. Not so hot, though, where the water’s heat would hurt you. I’ve acutally drank my cayenne pepper water drink where the water was so warm it steamed my glasses. Fundamentally, the warmer, the better
  • You can add juice of lemon, if you wish, although this is certainly optional
  • Mix or stir and then drink the “cayenne pepper detoxification drink” as it’s sometimes called in one straight shot.

Some Tips & Overview on The Best Hemorrhoid Treatment

Cayenne pepper water is not a drink to be savored but to be consumed as fast as possible. I drink mine in about 10 to 15 seconds.

It will positively affect your health in many ways but it’s not a drink to be sipped like a soda or a fruit juice or your favorite drink. That’s not its purpose.

What to expect? It will be hot but not uncomfortably so. Stick with the 1/4 of a teaspoon recommendation. Drink it at least once a day and work to get up to 3 times a day. Cayenne will inflame your mucus membranes especially in the beginning of usage.

This is what will happen:

  • Your eyes will water
  • A lot of phelgm will come up
  • Your nose will run
  • Your face might flush
  • You might cough a little
  • The back of your throat will be hot for a minute but don’t worry about it, it’s perfectly natural
  • If you inhale some through your nose accidentally, it might cause sneezing and your nose to run

It’s not as bad as you think. Honestly. I don’t get those symptoms anymore except for phelgm coming up for I’m used to it and my body’s adapted.

After taking it, I suggest you also sit down and don’t move around too much especially in the beginning. Cayenne pepper can possibly cause an uncomfortable burning sensation in the stomach until it passes into the duodenum, the beginning of your intestinal tract.

Even then, I don’t recommend doing any athletic activity until about a solid 30 to 40 minutes pass.

Trust me on this! When I take my daily glass, I sit still in my office chair and let it pass through without letting it move around too much in the stomach.

Also, the first couple of times, it may burn somewhat as it is coming out when you have a bowel movement. Don’t worry about this. It won’t harm you, nor your hemorrhoid problem.

Your body will adapt quickly if you continue taking it. The first time or two it really burned coming out of me but it didn’t hurt my hemorrhoid.

Be wise. Don’t take too much. Stick to my recommendations. If 1/4th of a teaspoon is too much, scale it back. Your body will soon adapt if you continue taking it. You should know that cayenne has different Scoville Heat Units (SHU).

Some cayenne is “mildly” hot coming in at 30,000 to 50,000 SHUs.  Start there.How to Get Rid of Hemorrhoids

Buy it at a local health food store or online at an herb wholesaler. I don’t recommend buying it at your grocery store but this is certainly better than nothing.

To finish my thoughts on the heat of cayenne, some is as hot as 90,000 and 160,000 SHUs. (I’m currently taking a 90,000 SHU cayenne.)

My recommendation is to start small as recommended here. For more of an overview on cayenne, I’d really recommend you visit

There you’ll find a very comprehensive, A to Z overview on cayenne, its heat unit classifications, and so on. There are also various YouTube videos I’ve recorded there too.


This simple, inexpensive hemorrhoids home treatment will work. Still, you should always see your doctor and I strongly recommend and endorse that.

Modern-day medicine is a blessing. But that said, I don’t believe they have all the answers. Medicinal herbs, when used with judgment and skill, work effectively.

If you want to get rid of hemorrhoids, this tip of taking cayenne pepper will help you.

The health benefits of cayenne are nothing short of remarkable from killing cancer cells, which has been proven in 3 separate studies in the world and to rebuilding the heart to removing plaque from artery walls to lowering ldl cholesterol.
