Herbal Sitz Bath for Thrombosed Hemorrhoid

Postby Blazing Light » Tue Jun 19, 2018 3:44 pm

Which are the best herbs to use in a Sitz Bath for shrinking a thrombosed hemorrhoid? Susun has recommended Witch Hazel as well as Comfrey for hemorrhoids. I read from another herbalist who mentioned that Oatstraw would be efficacious as well.
I use the type of sitz bath that sits over the toilet but without the bag that comes with it. I sit in the warmed infusion for 25 minutes 2x/day.
I believe this is going to take a few months to resolve. I started drinking my nourishing herbal infusions daily about two weeks ago.

I was just at a class with Susun and she spoke about oak bark as a sitz bath. I don't recall if hemmorroids were discussed but it is an excellent astringent and may be helpful

Have you heard of Triphala https://www.banyanbotanicals.com/info/a ... /triphala/ ?
It is not only useful as a daily 'regulator', it can also be used eternally https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17662304
So how about a Triphala sitz bath? According to this site https://easyayurveda.com/2013/12/18/eff ... morrhoids/ you need 1 Tbls triphala to half a bucket Hot water, allow to cool to comfort, submerge for 2 minutes.
