When someone mentions frozen potatoes you immediately think of French fries. But what if we told you that frozen potatoes are an excellent folk remedy used in Russia for treatment of hemorrhoids? You may think it’s nonsense but this a highly effective remedy for hemorrhoids which has healed many people in Russia.
There are a number of traditional home recipes for hemorrhoids treatments which have been more or less effective. A lot of people suffer from it and they say that it can be really uncomfortable and painful condition. Surgery often isn’t a permanent solution because they can appear again, so what can be done in this case?
The Russians have invented an ingenious and effective remedy which can eliminate hemorrhoids in one week. All you need is a potato and a freezer. Here’s what you need to do:
Peel a raw potato and cut it in thin slices, like you do it for French fries. Put the slices into the freezer and wait until they are frozen. Insert the frozen potato slice in your anus and leave it inside for 30 seconds. Repeat the process for 3-5 days. The next 3-5 days leave the slice inside for 30 seconds more each time.
Make sure you’re using good quality potatoes. They mustn’t be green or germinated.
The potatoes have astringent properties and help relieve the pain and itchy sensation which usually happens with this condition, while the ice cold potato constricts the blood vessels, reduces the swelling and relieves your pain instantly.
If you’re not sure whether you should try this remedy, consult your doctor, especially if you’ve had complicated hemorrhoids, fissures, abscesses or other anal disorders.
If you have external hemorrhoids you can make a potato poultice and apply it on them. Wash two potatoes, cut them into small pieces and put them in a blender. Blend them until they’re completely mashed, if the paste is too thick add a few teaspoons of water and mix well. Spread the mixture on a piece of gauze, fold it in half and apply it on the hemorrhoids. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes.
