Before we can deal with anal and rectal problems, we must first know what the anus and its auxiliary parts are.

 

ANATOMY

The anus is the opening at the terminal end of the anal canal. The anal canal is the final portion of the alimentary tract, about 4 cm long, between the rectal ampulla and the anus.

The rectum is "the large portion of the large intestine, about 12 cm long, continuous with the descending sigmoid colon, just proximal to the anal canal." Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1011

It may sound strange but the alimentary canal actually begins at the mouth. Yes, it begins at the mouth and ends at the anus. Food enters the body at the mouth and exits at the anus.

DISEASES AND AILMENTS OF THE ANUS

Anal Fissure

An anal fissure is "a linear ulceration or laceration of the skin of the anus." Mosby's supra.

An anal fissure could very well stem from a STD infection. However, an anal fissure denotes healing on the part of the body. Lesions and ulcerations on the body are signs that the body is attempting to expel waste, mainly because the normal elimination channels are clogged and not accessible for the expelling of the waste. So while an ulceration or laceration may be quite irritating and perhaps embarrassing to many people, to the human body HEALING is taking place.

Anal Fistula

An anal fistula is "an abnormal opening on the cutaneous surface near the anus, usually resulting in a local crypt abscess and also common in Crohn's disease. The perineum may or may not communicate with the rectum." Mosby's supra, p. 59

An anal crypt is defined as "the depression between rectal columns that encloses networks of veins that, when inflamed and swollen, are called hemorrhoids."

Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids basically means "blood flow" [Greek 'haima' meaning "blood" + 'rhoia' meaning "flow"].

Hemorrhoids are "a varicosity in the lower rectum or anus caused by congestion in the veins of the hemorrhoidal plexus. Internal hemorrhoids originate above the internal sphincter of the anus, they become constricted and painful. Small internal hemorrhoids may bleed with defecation. External hemorrhoids appear outside the anal sphincter. They are usually not painful, and bleeding does not occur unless a hemorrhoidal vein ruptures or thromboses." Mosby's supra, p. 559

The greatest causative factor of hemorrhoids is CONSTIPATION. See our "Constipation" article to learn about causes and effects.

Working on the colon, cleansing it, and keeping it clean and functioning optimally is the best way to prevent constipation and thus hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids result from straining or excess straining while on the toilet in the process of defecation. Diet is the major contributor toward extra-firm stools.

When the stools are hard and one has to strain, fruits and vegetables are not being eaten at all or enough in the daily diet. Enzymes are missing. These enzymes are very necessary because they help stimulate peristalsis (bowel movement). Fruits and vegetables and other "living" foods are loaded with enzymes.

Anal itching

In most cases, anal itching or irritation may be a sign of parasites (parasitic infestation). Parasites are subject to infestation in any part of the body and the rectum and anus are no exception.

Itching in the area of the anus could also stem from an STD infection, like genital herpes. It is very common for warts, bumps, and lesions to appear in the area of the anus.

I have found that in most cases, anal itching is caused by parasitic infection in the anus.

Anal itching can be quite irritating (and embarrassing) because the anus is a strange place for one to scratch.

Anal-rectal bleeding

Anal or rectal bleeding can denote a few things health-wise. Anal bleeding can be a sign of ulcers (due to stress and/or aspirin drug use which literally burns a hole into the intestines as aspirin coverts into harmful and corrosive acetic acid). When one goes to defecate, the stools have blood in them. This can be from either internal hemorrhoids, internal ulcers, or in the worst-case scenario, cancer (i.e., stomach, colon, or rectal).

Anal bleeding can also be the result of anal penetration. The skin sheath or covering of the anus is only one coat or layer strong unlike the female vagina, which is three coats or layers strong, in addition to the ability to self-lubricate unlike the anus. When the skin tears from anal penetration, bleeding will occur.

Rectal cancer

Rectal cancer can result from various things: numerous years of anal abuse via anal penetration from various males who ejaculate not only their sperm, but their sick intention (energy) into the person, and diet loaded with meat and processed foods.

Healing Options

Herbs that assist in the healing of anal problems include:

SENNA LEAF, which works well on the large colon and the rectum.

CASCARA SAGRADA, which helps counteract constipation and a very sluggish colon. Cathartic and laxative herbs greatly help prevent and/or remedy hemorrhoids as well as Crohn's Disease.

HORSE CHESTNUT, though not a colon herb it can heal, repair, and tone the veins, throughout the whole body including the anus. Hemorrhoids involve the veins in the anus area as pointed out supra.

ALOE VERA RESIN is another exceptional aid with great laxative and healing properties.

Herbs that help stop bleeding or hemorrhaging include: Goldenseal Root, Cranesbill, Dragon's Blood, Beth or Birth Root, Yarrow, Cramp Bark, Shepherd's Purse, Lady's Mantle, and Manjistha to name a few.
Avoid using commercial brand laxative such as Ex-Lax as many pharmaceutical grades of laxatives can be very addictive (as drugs have a tendency to be) and create dependency, something herbs don't create. Aloe Vera gel can be rubbed on hemorrhoids or anal lesions or sores to facilitate healing. Aloe Vera juice is a powerful tonic to drink for purposes of healing internal wounds such as gastric ulcers and colon conditions of diverticulitis, colitis, and Crohn's Disease.

ENEMAS, performing a weekly enema can greatly help keep the anus clean and healthy. Contrary to any negative hype surrounding the performance of enemas, enemas are very safe and effective, especially when the enema solution is of an herbal nature. An enema can be performed with regular water (distilled or alkaline is best in this case), herbal tea (herbal laxatives or cathartics), or organic coffee (if you want to target and cleanse your liver).

COLONICS or colon hydrotherapy is also very effective in maintaining the health of the anus and keeping it clean. DHerbs recommends three (3) colonics every three (3) months for the loyal meat-eater as nothing one can eat does as much harm to the intestinal tract and alimentary system as meat and dairy.

    Q: I have been sexually involved with this guy for 1 1/2 yrs. He just recently found out that he has a Peri Rectal Abscess. Actually several abcesses on his butt cheeks. They gave him antibiotics for it. This morning I woke up with the same type of (abcess) knot/soreness on my upper buttocks, near the crack of my butt, as he did. We have never had anal, sex. Is this Peri Rectal Abcess contagious and, or transferrable sexually? He seems to think it's not. What should I take naturally as an antibiotic? I know your thoughts and views on Colloidial Silver, but that is all I had this morning to ease some of the pain.

    Q: My son was diagnosed with Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Jan. 2007, 10-day hospital stay,. Jan 2008, 8-day stay. This is terrible, more like biological experiment results put in place a long time ago. I’ve been thinking, and feeling, he needed to be detoxified. I am not knowledgeable on these toxic, viral, bacteria, fungus, whatever this thing is. I just don't understand it. The doctors don’t either. Where does it come from? When did it come? My Son is 16 years, trying to finish school. I will continue praying and seeking answers. I know I want to help him to be, and stay safe from the diseases, syndromes, pharmaceutical medications, misinformation, streets, and bad association. Thank You

    A:

    "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: “A serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.†– Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in layman’s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, “a viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: “any of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: “…. skin, … mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?†Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Alterative herbs or blood cleansing and purifying herbs, expectorant herbs, and mucilaginous herbs are the ideal herbs here. Good blood-cleansing herbs include Oregon Grape, Pau D’ Arco, Echinacea Root, Manjistha, Goldenseal Root, Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Ilex, and Yellow Dock Root to name a few. Good mucus-ridding or expectorants herbs include Mullein Leaf, Eucalyptus, Fenugreek Seed, Boneset, Elecampane, Coltsfoot, and Lobelia to name a few. Good mucilaginous herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Marshmallow, and Guar Gum to name a few. These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you can’t obtain all of them, but most of them). Dherbs.Com products that can assist in healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome include FULL BODY DETOX (and CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for small children), 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE, and 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE kit. Individual formulas include BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , LUNGS AND RESPIRATORY FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, ACID BUSTER, KIDNEYS AND BLADDER, EYES FORMULA, ORAL ANTISEPTIC SPRAY, and OZ OIL (used externally but can also be taken internally).

    Q: I am writing you to see if you have any information and remedies for hemorrhoids. I am a Black African male in my 40's. I have changed my diet for the last 3 yrs., no meat, fish, cheese, milk, no dairy, no alcohol, no bread, greatly decreased sugar and salt. I exercise 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week, drink at least 6 glasses of water a day and take lots of vitamin c and a multivitamin but I still have not been able to get rid of the hemorrhoids. Also the hemorrhoids only come out when I have a bowel movement. I have bowel movements twice a day. Also, I have been taking horse chestnut tincture. Is there anything that you know of that might help me to get rid of them. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Truthfully, thank you very much.

    A:

    Try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanser. After the cleanse, take 3 capsules of Hemorrhoid Buster 2-3 times daily. Drink 1 cup of Aloe Vera juice daily.

    Q: I'm currently on the detox. It's my 10th day. :) I have developed some sores and tenderness in my mouth. Is this from the detox?

    A:

    The mouth sores and tenderness is NOT from the detox, but are symptoms of your body's healing, which the detox has greatly initiated.

    You see, the herbs don't dictate where the emphasis goes (as far as healing goes), the body does. The body knows all the areas of your body that need addressing (emotionally as well as physically).

    Internal skin is skin just as well and the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, so your body will use whatever channel is available to eliminate waste from the body.

    The mouth is part of the alimentary canal so this situation with your mouth only and simply denotes that much healing is taking place in your colon.

    Mouth sores are only temporary but they do dictate that the mouth's pH balance is too acidic. The mouth is naturally acidic, but it's a healthy acidic (6.8 pH)

    .

    To faciliatte healing of the mouth sores, gargle with a little tea tree oil (2-3 drops), hydrogen peroxide (half a teaspoon), and sea salt (half a teaspoon) in some warm water, throughout the day.

    But just know that everything is okay. In naturopathy, we call this "healing crisis."
