>> Does anyone know of an herbal treatment for hemorrhoids?

Take 3 heaping teaspoons of psyllium hulls every day with plenty of water and stop straining at the stool.

Filet an aloe leaf and make sure you cut off all the green skin and any yellow mucous substance. That should leave only a clear gel. Cut it up in the shape of a suppository and freeze it until it is easy to handle. Use it as you would any other suppository. It works great! Be sure you have aloe barbadensis or one of the other medicinal aloes. Any leftover gel will remain potent for a week or two.

Good Luck, Jody

P.S. If the problem involves external hemorrhoids, rub the gel on the site as often as possible.
