Remedy Description

Source: "Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Columnist, June 18, 2008

DEAR DR. GOTT: I want to respond to your column regarding hemorrhoids and how hard it is to get rid of them. I would like to tell you about the experience of

my husband's grandmother. During one of her physical exams, her doctor informed her that she had hemorrhoids and would need surgery to repair them. She refused

the surgery because she had read an article in Prevention Magazine claiming honey would help heal hemorrhoids. She immediately put honey on everything she could

(toast, hot cereal, etc.), and, by the time she saw the doctor again, they were gone. The doctor noticed and commented on her finally deciding on having the

surgery. She then said she didn't have the surgery, and if he looked more closely, he would notice the lack of scars. She told him about the honey and how it

solved her problem. He was amazed.


DEAR READER: Honey for hemorrhoids is new to me. I am aware of honey's healing properties for wounds and burns; however, in these instances, it is applied

topically. Eating honey to heal hemorrhoids seems like a bit of a stretch, and, I would imagine it would be more effective (and messy) if it were applied

topically. However, I can't argue with success.

If any of my readers have tried treating hemorrhoids with honey (either applied topically or ingested), please let me know. If the letters I receive show a

positive result, I will write a follow-up.
