5 Best Homeopathic Medicines for Anal Fissure

What Is An Anal Fissure?

fissure-homeopathyAnal fissure is a cut or tear in the lining of anal canal. Anal fissures mainly result from straining while passing hard or large stool. In some persons, chronic diarrhoea may also lead to anal fissures. Anal fissures may arise in women from trauma caused to the anal canal during childbirth. Anal fissures are very common in infants (children aged 1 month to 12 months). The main symptoms of anal fissure are pain during defecation and anal bleeding. The pain from anal fissures may last for hours after passing stool. The pain is often accompanied by marked burning in the anal area. Itching around the anus and malodorous discharge from the anal fissure are other symptoms that present themselves.

Homeopathy Treats Anal Fissure Naturally

Homeopathy is a natural mode of treatment that assures permanent cure of anal fissure. Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure first help to manage the most troublesome symptoms of pain, bleeding and itching from anal fissures. They then help heal cuts and tears in the anal canal, thus effecting permanent cure. Homeopathy is a great alternative treatment method for anal fissure and can be safely used among persons of all age groups. In my clinical practice, I have seen many cases of anal fissure recover completely from use of Homeopathic medicines. The Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure that I have found to be the most effective are Nitric Acid, Ratanhia, Graphites, Paeonia and Thuja. The medicines are selected as per the symptoms that present themselves in each case. All the Homeopathic medicines described below are equally effective in treating anal fissures, irrespective of the order in which they are mentioned.

Homeopathic Medicines for Anal Fissure

Nitric Acid – One of the top grade Homeopathic medicines for painful, bleeding anal fissure

Nitric Acid is one of the top rated Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure. I usually make Nitric Acid the first prescription in any given case of anal fissure. The classic symptoms guiding its use are violent anal pains, bleeding while passing stool and constipation. The pains can be cutting or tearing in nature. Bleeding with stool is of bright red color. Stool is passed with much straining and it tears the anus even if it is soft. Nitric Acid is almost always one of the best Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure of this type. It gives the most favourable results in bleeding and painful anal fissures.

Ratanhia – One of the most effective Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure with lasting pain in anus after passing stool

Natural medicine Ratanhia is one of the most frequently prescribed Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure where the prominent symptom is intense pain in the anus that lasts for several hours after passing stool. Burning in the anus and rectum also appear along with the pain in such cases. The anus feels like it is on fire. Cold water application may bring slight relief. Along with burning pains, the anus may feel constricted. Other symptoms that point towards prescription of Homeopathic medicine Ratanhia are sharp splinter-like pain and knife-like stitching pain in the rectum. Passing stool involves a lot of straining and pain. In my experience, Ratanhia is one of the Homeopathic medicines for Anal Fissure that almost always shows satisfactory results in cases of this type.

Graphites – One of the best Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure with large, difficult, constipated stool

I have seen excellent results with Homeopathic medicine Graphites in anal fissure with constipated, large, difficult stool. The stool tears the anus while defecating. Smarting pain in the anus is well marked. Intense soreness in the anal area is also prominent. Smarting and soreness in the anus are present for several hours both while passing stool and after passing stool. Graphites helps in relieving constipation and anal pain while healing the cuts and tears in the anus, making it one of the highly recommended Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure.

Paeonia – Top rated among Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure with itching and offensive discharge

Paeonia is another of the significant Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure. I would give Paeonia first place in treating anal fissure that causes anal itching and oozes offensive discharge. Paeonia has always had a high rate of success in treating such cases. Along with biting and itching, excruciating pain is present in the anus. The pains may continue for some hours after passing stool. Other complaints include offensive moisture and cracks in the anus. The anus appears swollen, torn and ulcerated in some such cases.

Thuja – One of the most wonderful Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure that is very tender

Homeopathic medicine Thuja is one of the most helpful Homeopathic medicines for anal fissure that is intensely tender. The prominent symptoms to look out for before prescribing Thuja are extremely tender anal fissure with pain that gets worse with the slightest touch and with sitting. Constipation and rectal pains are also well marked. Stool is passed with much effort and with violent rectal pains. Swelling, stitching and burning pain is also noted along with the symptoms mentioned above. Thuja, like all the medicines above, is natural and set off the body’s own restorative processes to heal the condition.
