Formula H, An Oral Herbal Supplement for Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are not life threatening, but they can make life miserable. From a Western perspective, hemorrhoids are actually veins in the anus that are swollen or are bleeding. The condition comes when valves in these veins do not work properly, allowing blood to back up and swell, enlarging the veins. Hemorrhoids are thus like varicose veins in your legs, except they are not in your legs.
There are different kinds of hemorrhoids, internal and external. TCM usually diagnoses them differently. External hemorrhoids appearing on the rim of the anus are usually considered Excess in nature and are caused by Heat And Blood Stagnation In The Large Intestine. They are often linked to 'squeezing' when constipated. The best herbal treatments for this kind of hemorrhoid include Blood Breakers, and herbs that encourage flow, break stagnations and relieve pain and swelling.
Internal hemorrhoids, on the other hand, appear on the surface of the rectum and, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, are caused by Deficient, rather than Excess conditions. The cause is said to be a weakening in the QI's ability to lift the organs. This causes the valves in these veins to prolapse, and blood to pool in the veins. Both kinds of hemorrhoids can bleed, but bleeding is more commonly associated with external hemorrhoids.
Anal bleeding that appears on the toilet paper, but does not appear in the toilet or on the stool is most often associated with hemorrhoids. Bleeding found in the toilet water or on the stool is usually associated with lesions that exist deeper in the large intestine. This kind of anal bleeding requires medical attention.
Formula H is well formulated to address external hemorrhoids as it contains HUAI HUA MI, and DI YU. Both of these herbs are classified as herbs that stop bleeding. For internal hemorrhoids caused by Prolapse of QI, consider using Health Concerns' Raise QI"
