I never realized that honey and cinnamon were so powerful. Thanks for all that info.
I was talking to an old girlfriend the other evening and steered her to this thread. She is into gardening and growing things.
She said her mom had a bad case of hemorrhoids and wondered if you had some simple cure.

First thank you for having enough faith in the thread to send your friends.
Yes, I know what works for many of us and has helped to avoid the surgery they offer for it.
If they are real bad and bleeding, etc, a hot bath, sitting on a folded bath towel will help. So would adding peppermint tea or even a tea made from lavender flowers. [Do I have to say that the tea must be strained into the bath??? LOL , I did not the first time I took one, and it was a mess........Use common garden peppermint or even spearmint and you have a bath you will not forget, cleans, heals and relaxes you.
Boil 1 cup of dry leaf for 15 minutes, let it set covered and you have a bath tea.]
After you are dry and clean, use Vicks, about a 1/4 spoon full or so, more if needed and use it to grease them and to push them back inside. It will feel good, will not burn, is more cool than hot.
Yes the same Vicks that you use on your kids chests at the first sign of a cold..........
After you have them under control, the real secret is to keep them pushed back after every shower, I prefer the Avon ‘Vita Moist body lotion” and used it for the past 40+ years.
Vita Moist is a lanolin based lotion, that is not highly perfumed and will work for men too.
If you do not keep them oiled, they will come right back.
Yes, I thought of making this a private answer, but I also know how many other people have the same problem, most of us on this thread I would guess..........as we had babies and we all do heavy lifting.
LOL, I never tried honey for them, but have used it on bad cuts and they say if you have allergy problems, be sure to eat a honey from your area and it will cure it.
Cinnamon is not on my list of favorites, I would rather eat cayenne pepper.
