Cool Soothing Tea Tree Oil For Hemorrhoids


Ok wow what relief…

Let’s get the nitty gritty out of the way first.. What is this pain in my anus?

Hemorrhoids (HEM-uh-roids), also called piles, are swollen veins in your anus and lower rectum, similar to varicose veins. Hemorrhoids can develop inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids) or under the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids).

Nearly three out of four adults will have hemorrhoids from time to time. Hemorrhoids have a number of causes, but often the cause is unknown.

Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids usually depend on the type of hemorrhoid.

External hemorrhoids

These are under the skin around your anus. Signs and symptoms might include:

  • Itching or irritation in your anal region
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Swelling around your anus
  • Bleeding

Internal hemorrhoids

Internal hemorrhoids lie inside the rectum. You usually can’t see or feel them, and they rarely cause discomfort. But straining or irritation when passing stool can cause:

  • Painless bleeding during bowel movements. You might notice small amounts of bright red blood on your toilet tissue or in the toilet.
  • A hemorrhoid to push through the anal opening (prolapsed or protruding hemorrhoid), resulting in pain and irritation.

Thrombosed hemorrhoids

If blood pools in an external hemorrhoid and forms a clot (thrombus), it can result in:

  • Severe pain
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
  • A hard lump near your anus

When to see a doctor

If you have bleeding during bowel movements or you have hemorrhoids that don’t improve after a week of home care, talk to your doctor.

Don’t assume rectal bleeding is due to hemorrhoids, especially if you have changes in bowel habits or if your stools change in color or consistency. Rectal bleeding can occur with other diseases, including colorectal cancer and anal cancer.

Seek emergency care if you have large amounts of rectal bleeding, lightheadedness, dizziness or faintness.

OMG.. You just want to shout…

I had a heart attack a few months back and I have been on blood thinners for 4 months. My hair stopped growing and an extra special event of Hemorrhoids came along at 3 months and 2 weeks into the medication. At first I didn’t realize how bad they had gotten until I woke up and found it very painful to walk.

OMG… What pain… I tried Apple Cider Vinegar it was not enough. I did not have any Witch Hazel.

Fortunately, I had Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil T36-C5 in the cabinet. Because these Hemorrhoids were to much for the Apple Cider Vinegar to handle.

There are many effective options available to treat hemorrhoids. Many people get relief with home treatments. So never be afraid to keep some of these remedies in your medicine cabinet.

I first applied a weaken solution of 3 drops Tea Tree Oil and a splash of water on a cotton ball. Laid down and tucked that cottonball away between my checks and it stayed there for 2 hours. It relieved my pain with a cool soothing feeling compared to the burning sensation of the ACV. I did that for two days. They were going down but it was still very painful.

I decided to go to full strength on the 3rd day. I took a cotton swap and 2 drops. I made sure I coated the outside really well and I started trying to insert the tip into the inside. It was swollen I really could not get it to go in. Later that night I did it again. I noticed I was able to get the tip in a little. That over whelming feeling of a cool sensation was spreading up inside. That became a wonderful feeling.

The next morning I felt so much better and things were getting back to normal. So short story. Keep stuff available to heal yourself at home.

It’s Time to Take Control Of Your Weight


Don’t let your weight hold you back from doing the things you want to do. It’s Time to Take Control Of Your Weight.

I have to admit I eat Healthy and that consists of No real junk food. I make all my own food. Going for Junk food is a treat that ends up making me feel sick afterwards.

If you eat as clean as possible and what I mean by that is keeping as many processed foods out of the equation. Low Sugar consumption, use honey or cane syrup for as much as possible, No Soda, No Energy Drinks, unless they are made fresh at home with all natural healthy ingredients. Or Like I said I pay the price. There is just too much sugar, added extra yeast and preservatives in so many products. It only adds to the demise of all goals.

You might find It hard and time consuming at first. But once you get the routine down there’s no problem. Get a crock pot or slow cooker if you work long hours. So it’s ready when you get home. Or you can cook most of your food on your days off. Bake your own bread and cookies from scratch. Make ice tea instead of soda. Or get fresh fruit and add fruit to the blender with water and keep in refrigerator.

If I want chocolate pudding I just make it from scratch. That way I know exactly what I am consuming and it’s healthy for me. There is real sugar, no aspartame or any other odd ingredient that causes illness. Just make your stuff from scratch not from a box. Or you will end up with too much of something that is not good for you.

Don’t get me wrong you can still go out to eat just choose wisely for your meals out and have protein instead of carbs. So more Steak, then deep fried mozzarella cheese sticks. Try and stay away from deep fried foods when you eat out. Going out to breakfast and having eggs, potatoes and meat. No Fast Food through a window. STAY AWAY!!! Go to a sit down restaurant and eat. Mexican food is great. Especially Soft Tacos with all the salsa and veggies. Salsa and Chips are excellent snack in-between meals.

I also consume 2 teaspoons of Bragg apple cider vinegar twice a day. That gives me energy and detox’s the body.

I have 3 dogs and I walk them 3 times a day, 7 days a week around my property. That keeps my legs in shape. I have strength bands that I use for my arms, back and belly. Very “Low” impact exercise.

Just remember to stop and think before you eat. That is the main trick. Have a pound of bacon or steak. Just leave the toast and pancakes out. Protein Diet Only.. Low Carbs. That does not mean you can’t snack or have a cookie or slice of fruit pie. Just make sure you made it from scratch…

DON”T DIET, JUST EAT RIGHT…

Ohh My Head and Tummy!!! Are you Hungover?


Here’s to all you Birthday Girls & Guys.
After last nights big event. Is your head feeling a little underwater? Tummy feeling like you are on a boat in the middle of ruff seas? First you want to try some eggs over easy with some of those Pumpkin Rolls toasted. Then “Sound the emergency Alarm” for a remedy… ACV to the Rescue!!!

Apple Cider Vinegar is believed to help the Liver dissolve poisonous matter, like to much alcohol. It also balances the pH levels and tops up any deficiency in minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron, which your alcohol soaked body is craving.

When you wake up in the morning just make a delicious cocktail using 16 ounces of water, 2 teaspoons of raw, organic apple cider vinegar, and if you need a sweetener, use organic honey, 100% maple syrup, or molasses to taste. If you are diabetic, use the sweet substitute stevia. I recommend you use only distilled water. This “Bragg Healthy Cocktail” is designed to flush out wastes that are clogging the organs of elimination. Make sure you use raw, organic vinegar, never dead, distilled vinegar because the natural enzymes, minerals, and nutrients are destroyed in the distilling process. Any vinegar that is clear and has no “mother” (the strand-like substance in the bottom of the bottle) has no nutritional value. Natural raw vinegar should be pungent, with a rich, brownish color and a visible “mother.”

ENJOY your Party Recovery….

Planning ahead…Summer is right around the corner!!!


The Natural Diet: Best Foods for Weight Loss

If you find you have had to much fun in the kitchen this winter, you need to plan ahead for some exercise.

Yes, that dirty word after winter we all hate to hear. Trust me I am dreading climbing aboard that treadmill or even lifting my mini weights. Skipping rope has skipped right out of my my mind. I am still in cookie and candy mode. Just make sure you continue to take your daily dose of ACV. This will help you keep some of those cookie tires off of your waistline.

You can also keep up on your fresh veggies. Try a new kick and pickle some carrots, cucumbers, onions and Italian seasonings with ACV. Check out my pickled cucumbers recipe.
