QUESTION: I’ve made the homemade HemorrHeal Rectal Suppository Formula for Internal Hemorrhoids and I’ve also had Rubber-Band Ligation of Hemorrhoids performed by a proctologist (cca. 6 procedures in the last 6 months). As using the formula and the ligation procedures have taken place roughly during the same time, I can say that hemorrhoids haven’t returned, probably due to both reasons. On the other hand, I do have major problems with my anal sphincter. When I go to the bathroom to empty my stools (usually twice in the morning) and wipe the behind, all day through I have issues, as it it becomes unclean again (and moist and a burning sensation when walking) in about an half an hour, or even sooner. If I take a shower and clean it with water, it doesn’t help much. My proctologist said it’s a problem of loose anal sphincter, yet he had no recommendations on what I can do about it (I’m heterosexual male so sexual practices are not the reason for the problem). He only advised I gently massage my anal sphincter and canal with oily creams in order to smooth it, yet that does not help at all.
I would really appreciate any advice on your part for this problem, as it really significantly decreases the quality of my life and movement (I can’t even go jogging anymore and I’ve become very depressed about it).
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

ANSWER: Well a few things jump right out at me from your description – do you mean that you have undergone SIX rubber-band ligations in the last 6 months? I wonder if the surgeon damaged your sphincter muscle during any of the procedures… Fecal incontinence is the top long-term symptom of sphincter dilation – so that shows how easily the muscle can be damaged. As I believe that everything can be healed, if it were me, here’s how I would proceed – and I wouldn’t do these in order, but rather, all at once:

1. Keep going with the HemorrHeal as the same formula can be used to heal strictures and other damaged tissues. Really listen to your body as to the pace/frequency of usage; maybe once per day, maybe 3x/week, etc. Also should you use it at night?

2. Relieve your psychological anxiety by using menstrual panty liners, or mini-pads in your underwear. Buy jockeys if you usually wear boxers, as the pads need to be held in place to catch the feces. Carry them with you when you go out and change them as often as needed – just wrap in toilet paper and throw in the garbage. Do NOT let this condition stop you from enjoying life – just make an adjustment and do what feeds your soul and makes you happy – healing is much faster in a positive space!

3. Address the mind/body/spirit component of your condition. WHY did you keep developing hemorrhoids? WHAT is the message your body is giving you via this condition? For more guidance, on exactly what I mean by this, see these posts:

You might also want to use this guided meditation specifically for hemorrhoids and anal sphincter issues.

4. Take the pressure off your sphincter when you have a bowel movement. Use a stepping stool, or Squatty Potty to get your knees higher than your hips when you poo. BUT if this also puts too much pressure on the sphincter too quickly (by opening the rectal canal) then lean back. Or also put your legs out in front (on the stool) when you lean back.

Help for Hemorrhoids & Loose Anal Sphincter Muscle

  • Two additional suggestions come to mind. First, physical and dietary reasons why the hemorrhoids are recurring. Hard, large stools and constipation are often the physical reasons and there are things you can do to help prevent this. I would think during the healing phase it would be especially important to avoid this and using a magnesium supplement and fiber supplement could help. But you may also need a dietary overhaul which includes a lot more fresh vegetables and fruits. Worth exploring.

    Secondly, I have been searching for advice for strengthening anal sphincter muscles myself and have recently been trying simple squeezing exercises (similar to kegels). It seems to be helping in my case but I don’t have hemorrhoids – my issues stem from Crohn’s. Looking at a medical guide to those muscles, they do seem larger and more robust than I expected so I’m hopeful that exercising them will have some result. Jini – do you have experience with this?

    Lastly, I would get a second opinion from a different surgeon who specializes in anal surgery should you need more. Good luck!

  • Good point Michelle – we always want to treat the ROOT cause of an issue, not just the symptoms.

    Certainly it can help to strengthen any/all the muscles in our pelvis. As long as you’re taking the magesium/calcium/potassium to be able to relax those muscles when needed, I can’t think of a negative consequence…

  • I have been having a feeling of pins and needles in my rectum along with swelling, itching and bleeding. I was having a hard time just walking and riding my bike was out of the question. Three days ago I made the hemorrheal that Jini recommends and after the first application with an eyedropper I was right back to normal. I was riding my bike the next morning. Hemorrheal is awesome. Thank you so much.

    1. Awesome Cynthia! We really appreciate the updates and we’re glad to hear that you’re finding the process easy and manageable.

  • I had a sphincteroplasty 6 years ago after a very difficult labor and childbirth. It has become very weak over time and I can no longer hold in gas and any loose stool. My Rectal surgeon said surgery again but I really don’t want that. Is there any non surgical hope? I do kegels and have done biofeedback which has not helped.
