How to Cure Hemorrhoids : How to Make a Sitz Bath to Cure Hemorrhoids

By Grover Koelpin 62 comments

Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell and on
behalf of expert village I’m going to talk to you today about hemorrhoids. Now in this
clip I’m going to show you one of the ways that is most commonly recommended to alleviate
some of the pain of hemorrhoids and that’s called a sitz bath. Now, what I have here
is some items to do a sitz bath. Of course this is a bowl, but you’re going to use something
three or four times the size or you can actually go and do it in the bathtub. What you really
do is that you get some warm water and you fill the bowl or the bathtub up to six inches,
ten inches of water, preferably warm water. You can also add some aroma therapy oils just
to make you feel relaxed. Once you’ve done that you can actually get some, you can either
normal table salts or what is recommended for hemorrhoids relief which is Epsom salt
which you can buy at any pharmacy or drugstore. It is really quite cheap, a couple of dollars.
Here is a pack of Epsom salt. It’s basically sodium, it’s a saline crystal form. You can
add that into the water in which I’m going to add here. You mix it around. This is warm
water. You mix it around. Then what you do is, like in the diagram, you sit in it, but
don’t sit right to the bottom. Have a couple of inches from the bottom of the bowl or from
the bathtub cause basically what the sitz bath is to really relieve the pressure. The
heat and the salt, will also, the saline water, will relieve the pressure of the hemorrhoids
and decrease the pain.

Would you trust a doctor who can't read what is in front of her? Table salt is Sodium Chloride. Epsom Salt is Magnesium Sulfate.They are not the same thing. The diagram is laughable. It's almost like she's too embarrased to say what she really needs to say and she has no script. How about some measurements. How much salt or espom to use per gallon lets say, hmm? This video is useless to anyone who actually needs details on how to do a sitz bath.

if anyone has this do what i did just put nivea or nivia in the area and then go take a nap but put a cushion on your bottom so you dont feel the pain then when you wake up try getting up and walking around if it still burns then keep it on if it dosent then go to the restroom and wipe of the cream gently so it dosent hurt

I thought that hit only makes hemorrhoids bigger… more pain… what u have to do is same shit but without any salt and cold water, just sit for 10 min… should be enough… it wont cure it, but will decrease the size of it… so it will hurt less.


Aug 8, 2009, 10:31 am Reply

i think that would only be because cold reduces swelling, which is basically what hemorrhoids are


Aug 8, 2009, 10:31 am Reply

isnt nivia shave gel?


Aug 8, 2009, 10:32 am Reply

if its causing you such significant pain, then it might be an open sore. and would putting salt water into something open be bad?

I just did this Sitz Bath and it does make the hemmorhoids feel more "relaxed" after the first try .I can imagine the swelling going away if I do this bath in a daily basis. Thanks for the tips!

such a curse arent they? i have had them since i was 16 and i am 27 hate them oh so much!


Jan 1, 2010, 7:06 am Reply

Ya they are really terrible… every time u get hemorrhoid just do the sitz bath and wear lots of cushion for ur bum, those 2 techniques really work. First time I had roids and I didn't do anything to ease it and it lasted for 2 months. Second time I got it I used these techniques and they lasted for only a week. But it is still always there but doesn't bother me at all.

@blackws1234 i have found no cure but when you have them full blown you have to concentrate real hard when using the bathroom trying to relax your muscles so not to aggravate them further, when doing that, at least for me they go away faster i also use suppositories which do get rid of most of the pain, down fall they give you the runs.

Any wonder why?!

The COCO Bidet is a much better alternative to the sitz bath. Which do you think is better sitting on a bowl of overflowing water or having a gentle spray of water cleanse you with the simple push of a button. Not to mention that you will also save a lot of money from having to always buy toilet paper.

Incorrect and incomplete instructions! Agree with Metqa's input. I am a nurse for surgeons and I know this video is so very wrong!

You can seat for 20 minutes. Thats what i do and it works. 3 times in a day. but i just use warm water, not salt or anything.

Epsom salt is NOT sodium (as the video says) but magnesium sulfate. It can have anti inflammatory properties when absorbed through the skin. Bad video.

I tried a lot of treatments, the problem I hated about most of these, is that none of them attack the root of the problem so they are only temporary fixes until my friend recommended me a cure that it worked or me, you can check it out DONEPA.COM

Not trustworthy sitz bath video. The author is confused: Epsom salt is not Sodium Chloride (processed table salt), but 100% Magnesium Sulfate USP. It's on the container !!!


Jul 7, 2013, 11:17 pm Reply

This video is good. Obviously salt and epsom salt are not the same. Her point is that epsom salt is better than using regular salt.

All of you that have recommended DONEPA.COM are using "borrowed" profile pics. I went to that site and something seemed fishy to me. Then I did a tineye image search of your profile pics and got multiple results. Just quit the scam please. Post useful info if you have it but please quit fishing for suckers.

Have you read her ebook? Have you find her cure effectif?
If not, what is wrong about her remedy?
I am asking you this questions because I can't find a review in internet without a commercial buy her book in it!
They don't give a honnest review, they just make a commercial review-like, more a commercial than anything else!

My well being was formerly wrecked courtesy of yeast infection for quite some time. I did hide away because of it. I made use of pretty much everything I could get my hands on, yet it didnโ€™t work. Afterwards I found out about the Yeast Infection Destroyer blog (Google it) and my yeast infection faded away. I love it.

Hemroids is cause by the body inner imbalances. All the treatment method you've used perhaps temporary – hence the problem will occurs again and again. So to permanently heal piles, you need to remove the root which cause it

Jennifer Joyce is my name, I live in Virginia. I want to tell the world how I was cured of my Hemorrhoids by Dr Andre Armstead. Few years ago when I was still in the University I love eating sugary stuffs and most times I had running stomach and all of that. It continued and on daily basis my love for eating sugary stuffs increased. As a result of eating sugary stuffs I was always going to toilet and sometimes I stay long in the toilet. It continued like that up till my final year in school when I was diagnosed of Chronic diarrhea this caused me big problem and after my graduation in school when I got married, pregnancy came in and going to toilet became a big problem for me. I feel ill at that stage, and I was rushed to the hospital I had miscarriage, and same tine was diagnosed of Hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids became a very big problem for me anytime I go to toilet I screen while defecating. I tried so many cure but could not work. An uncle came to visit because of my condition, and told me his friend once testified to him on how a herbalist cured him with herbal medicine of similar ailment . So he contacted his friend to give him the contact details of the herbal doctor. We contacted the herbal doctor and he promised to totally cure me of my Hemorrhoids. We made all necessary arrangement and he prepared the herbs and shipped it to me. he gave me directions on how am to use it behold just like a magic, the herbs cured me in just last than 15 days. It was a promise I made to Dr Andre that if he can cure me, certainly I will tell the world about his herbal medicine. Now he have cured me am here to fulfill the promise I made to him. Please if you are out there and you are suffering from Hemorrhoids I want you to quickly contact Dr Andre Armstead on his email are ([email protected]), and also you can call or text him on +1 (617) 663-8926. If you want to reach me, my email is jennifer Joyce [email protected]

NEVER USE TABLE SALT…..THATS JUST STUPID and painful …so called Expert: Dr. Susan Jewell…please dont give advice to people if you are ignorant…table salt wont lower inflammation it will only be painful >>>>Magnesium lowers the inflammation… ONLY use a magnesium salt solution …you can just make a little cup of solution and put on the bung hole…it will hurt like hell for 1 min then the vasoconstriction action of the magnesium kicks in and the pain drops off….put some coconut oil in the freezer in a plastic ….remove the chuck of frozen oil and put it on the bung hole for even more relief,,,,

Well well, got a few good ideas from this video, thank you. It's very relieving to have smooth bowel movements, with no signs of ever having hemorrhoids. It's difficult to get into the details but googling a site such as Melissa Thanderski's hemorrhoid solution can help you understand what I'm talking about.

I was suffering from piles from last 1 year. Rectal bleeding was there with so much pain and it had become very difficult to me to defecate. I tried so many allopathic products but no relief was there. One day I shared my problem with one of my friend. He guided me to visit Planet Ayurveda, I visited there, consulted Dr. Vikram Chauhan. Dr. Vikram prescribed me with Piles care pack. I took medicine for about 3 months regularly, amazing results are there. Thanks to Planet Ayurveda!!
