What’s Up? Haemorrhoids

They are painful, itchy and sometimes may result in the need for surgery if not viewed as part of a bigger health issue in the early stages.

Haemorrhoids produce varying degrees of pain, feelings of pressure, itching, irritation and a palpable mass. In women, the single most common cause is pregnancy. In men and some women haemorrhoids are largely a problem created by poor dietary habits leading to constipation and inflammation of both the rectal tissue and the viens. Haemorrhoid’s also known as piles are varicose veins of the rectum

Aesculus (Horse chestnut), Hamamelis (Witch Hazel), Borago (Borage), Calendula (Marigold), Equisetum (Horsetail) and Essential oil of Rosemary : Helps reduce venous congestion by improving the blood flow in eg varicose veins, haemorrhoids
