 Homeopathy: Homeopathic Treatment of Hemorrhoids  

Please study these cases, then turn to page ____ for the case analyses.

Case 1:

In analyzing Beverly's case, we used the following rubrics in Kent's Repertory : "RECTUM; HAEMORRHOIDS; chronic" (although we treated this case as an acute flareup, she did have a chronic, recurrent tendency towards hemorrhoids), "RECTUM; HAEMORRHOIDS; internal", "RECTUM; HAEMORRHOIDS; pregnancy; during", "RECTUM; HAEMORRHOIDS; stool; after", "RECTUM; HAEMORRHOIDS; stool; protrude during". The remedy which came up with the highest score and which seemed to best fit Beverly's case was Sulphur. We gave herSulphur 30C in a single dose. The rectum pain was substantially improved and she did not need another dose.

Case 2:

Beverly was given Aloe 200c in a single dose. Aloe is very useful for protruding hemmorhoids with a sense of pulsation in the rectum. There is often a feeling of insecurity in the rectum; a weakness and loss of power of the sphincter ani. This is much like Beverly described at her previous visit while she was still pregnant. Patients needing aloe may complain of an intense burning in the anus and rectum or an extreme soreness and tenderness. The pain is usually relieved by cold applications. A keynote of Aloe is hemorrhoids protruding like a bunch of grapes. There may also be considerable mucus in the stool. Aloe is an important remedy for dysentery, so diarrhea may also accompany the hemorrhoids.

Beverly called three days later to say her hemorrhoids were much improved. She has not needed further treatment.

Case 3:

We also prescribed Aloe for Lois. The only potency which was available to her locally was 6c. She took the Aloe 6c daily for two days, then called us two days later with a report on her condition. The hemorrhoids had diminished in size by one-half. The pain was better. The improvement had begun to diminish after she stopped taking the remedy. We instructed her to resume the Aloe 6c as needed and to call us if it stopped working, so that we could send her Aloe 30c. The hemorrhoids resolved over the next few days and Lois never needed the higher dose. That was six months ago and she has had no problems with hemorrhoids since that time.

Case 4:

Bill was given one dose of Aesculus hippocastanum 200c (Horse chestnut). Aesculus, a prominent remedy for hemorrhoids, is needed for hemorrhoid pain which radiates to the back and hips, particularly the sacroiliac. The pain is worse when the person rises from a seat, like Bill did. The remedy also fit his tendency to rectal pain which was worse after a bowel movement. Bill's hemorrhoidal symptoms were much improved within two days. The hemorrhoids were completely gone within three days. They have not returned despite continued physical labor with squatting and bending.

These four cases illustrate the rapid and long-lasting response of patients suffering from hemorrhoids to acute homeopathic treatment.
