Discover whether Epsom salt bath for hemorrhoids is good and how to use it in sitz baths to treat hemorrhoids at home.

Hemorrhoids also known as piles are annoying because they appear around the anus. When you have, external hemorrhoids you may confuse them for skin tags and sometimes just the opposite happens. Skin tabs in the anal section are confused for piles.

A bath with this salt can get rid of hemorrhoids both internal and external.

Although both the skin tags and hemorrhoids are harmless, they can be quite uncomfortable. For starters, you can never be too sure to be clean after passing stool by just wiping with tissue paper. Washing may be the best alternative or using wet wipes.

It is quite rejuvenating to sit in a bath with Epsom salts. However, if you want relief from your hemorrhoids, using your bathtub may be the last option if you do not have a plastic sitz bathtub. The sitz bathtub allows you to keep refilling clean water in the tub and to drain it appropriately into your toilet. Therefore, you do not have to worry about messing up your bathroom. Epsom salt sitz bath for hemorrhoids is impossible with this inexpensive tool.

However, if you want to avoid the cost altogether, sitting in your bathtub at home would also work as fine. You have to make sure that the water reaches your thighs. Unlike the sitz bath, in your tub you cannot refill the water with a clean supply since you have to sit in stagnated water. This is not the case with a sitz bath.

Whatever way you find it appropriate, using either a bathtub or the sitz bathtub on your toilet, do ensure that your sitz bath for hemorrhoids Epsom salts should be ½ -1 cup added to warm water. You should also sit there for 15-20 minutes. Some people claim that the salts do not offer relief. This may be the case if you use cold water instead of warm. Furthermore, you can avoid the salts altogether and do a sitz bath of warm water alone or with ¼ cup witch hazel.

If you find none of this is helping at all, it may be time to seek treatment from your doctor as you may require surgery or medication to clear the piles.


Epsom Salt Bath Hemorrhoids Treatment – Make Effective

You cannot find relief from just using the Epsom salt bath hemorrhoids treatment while you continue to eat junk food and avoid drinking water. Our bodies are what we eat, therefore, if you want the muscles in the anal area not to strain, you should be eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Strive at getting as much roughage as possible from all the foods you eat. Additionally, drink a substantial amount of water each day. You need to make a habit of drinking about 8-10 glasses in a day among other healthy fluids of juices from fresh fruits.

Without plenty of fiber and water Epsom salt bath for hemorrhoids treatment cannot work alone. A healthy diet and lifestyle helps when using this treatment.

NESTLE (M) BERHAD Goody Box 2017

Unlike previous year, this year the NESTLE shareholders gonna attend the AGM at Hilton KL Sentral on 27th April 2017, to get the goody box as well as the lunch pack. It was a disaster to collect the goodies, as there were too many people attended the AGM. The queue was very long for both the goody box and lunch pack counters. And what made the matters worst was that there were not enough goodies prepared for both of the items. So, most of the shareholders got either the goody box or the lunch pack on that day. Many disappointed shareholders had to register and collect their goody box at a later date at Amcorp Mall.

I was lucky to get the Goody box on the spot, but the lunch pack was out of stocks...
The box was huge!
Inside the Nestle Goody Box are a bunch of Nestle New products. I would say the whole box is worth about RM80. On top of that, NESTLE is giving out the LAZADA RM50 cash voucher (with no minimum purchase) this year. Hence, total value is about RM130 for year 2017.

NESTLE (@16/5/2017) = RM81.50
DY = 3.4%
