In this study we propose a natural pomade made of Quebracho blanco scraping and Rubia tinctorium extract to defeat completely prolapsed and inflamed hemorrhoids in seven women who suffered from external and inflamed hemorrhoids who had previously used seven kinds of remedies and we have had the chance to state how the use of our pomade resulted beneficial in all the case except in the case of the woman who had previously used hydrocortisone to treat her syndrome. Hydrocortisone is very good for combating the inflammation but is not absolutely to be considered a wound healing or an astringent agent.

Hemorrhoids, also called piles, are swollen veins in anus and lower rectum, similar to varicose veins. Hemorrhoids numbers an avalanche of causes, although often the cause is unknown. Generally they may result from straining during bowel movements.

Hemorrhoids may be located inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids), or they may develop under the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids or prolapsed hemorrhoids).

Hemorrhoids are very common. Nearly three out of four adults will have hemorrhoids from time to time. Sometimes they don’t cause symptoms but at other times they cause itching, discomfort and bleeding.

Occasionally, a clot may form in a hemorrhoid (thrombosed hemorrhoid). These are not dangerous but can be extremely painful and sometimes need to be lanced and drained.

Fortunately, many effective options are available to treat hemorrhoids. Many people can get relief from symptoms with home treatments and lifestyle change

Signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids may include:

  • Painless bleeding during bowel movements – one might notice small amounts of bright red blood on your toilet tissue or in the toilet
  • Itching or irritation in the anal region
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Swelling around the anus
  • A lump near the anus, which may be sensitive or painful (may be a thrombosed hemorrhoid)

Prolapsed hemorrhoids are under the skin around the anus. When irritated, external hemorrhoids can itch or bleed.

Sometimes blood may pool in an external hemorrhoid and form a clot (thrombus) that can result in severe pain, swelling, inflammation and a hard lump near the anus.

In this study we disclose an innovative method to combat external or prolapsed hemorrhoids and the revolutionary aspect of the research is that we have attempted to cure volunteers suffering from prolapsed hemorrhoids who have been using to treat them for fifteen days with other remedies, as:

Hydrocortisone; Brewer’s yeast; Lidocaine; Walnut hull oil; St John’s worth(Hypericum perforatum); Centella asiatica extract; Gingko biloba extract.

Indeed we propose the usage of a pomade made of Aspidosperma Quebracho blanco scraping and Rubia tinctorium extract.

This remedy shows the complication of staining briefs and underpants, and for, the employ of hygienic underwear is suggested, since the treatment lasts only 8 days, till the complete remission of the syndrome, as it will be demonstrated below.

Aspidosmerma Quebracho blancho is a powder extracted from the bark of the same tree native to Argentina and other countries of Latin America.

It contains aspidospermin, an alkaloid discovered by Fraude [1] and Hesse [2], and its chemical structure has been set up by Conroy [3], Mills and Nyburg [4]. It is an excellent wound healing.

Other chemical constituents of Quebracho blanco are yohimbine [5,6], quebracamine and quebracacidine (glucoalkaloid). This latter, thanks to the sweat of the anus, produces alstonidine.

Alstonidine is able to trespass the epidermal layer of the anastonomic annulet and acts as an exceptional antipyretic.

But the most important chemical constituent is tannin (4%) that reveals good astringent properties.

The roots of Rubia tinctorum L. (madder) are the source of a natural dye. The dye components are anthraquinones which probably contribute to the resistance of the plant against fungi in the soil. Madder roots have been used to dye textiles in many parts of the world since ancient times and an overview of the historical development, cultivation, harvesting and dyeing techniques of madder is given. The anthraquinone alizarin, the hydrolysis product of ruberythric acid, is considered an excellent antimicrobial and it is well known that when hemorrhoids are inflamed, the microbial colonies are flourishing.

Some Researchers [6,7] referred that aspirates of pus from infected hemorrhoids in 19 patients showed bacterial growth. Anaerobic bacteria only were recovered in six (32%) specimens, aerobic bacteria only in one (5%), and mixed aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in 12 (63%). Sixty-eight isolates were recovered: 39 anaerobes (2.1 isolates per specimen) and 29 aerobes (1.5 per specimen). The predominant anaerobes were Bacteroides sp. (13 isolates, including 10 Bacteroides fragilis groups) and 13 Peptostreptococcus sp. The predominant aerobes were Escherichia coli, Proteus sp. [5], group D streptococci [4], and Pseudomonas sp. [3].


We have selected seven women (25-40 y. old) suffering from prolapsed and inflamed hemorrhoids and we prayed each of everyone to use the seven diverse remedies for fifteen days.

Hydrocortisone; Brewer’s yeast; Lidocaine; Walnut hull oil; St John’s worth(Hypericum perforatum); Centella asiatica extract; Gingko biloba extract.

After this period we have checked up the situation of the area of the anus and stated that inflammation completely disappeared, but external hemorrhoids were always present and bouncing.

In some cases were extremely reddish and spongy (lidocaine and Brewer’s yeast).

So at the sixteenth day we prayed the women to begin to spread the pomade we had realized.


After the adequate check up every evening, we have discovered that the women who had previously used Centella asiatica extract and walnut hull oil showed an amelioration after the third day.

Women who had previously used St John’s worth and hydrocortisone and showed a first amelioration after 5th and 8th day, respectively.

The woman who had previously used Gingko biloba extract showed an improvement after the very first day.

Anyway, except the woman who had previously used hydrocortisone, all the others had their hemorrhoids cured after 8 days.


It is suggestive to remark that in all the other six cases we have noticed a good remission after 8 days.

It is notorious that hydrocortisone is exceptional to defeat inflammation, but inhibits wound healing as well.

Apart from that the pomade we have proposed stains underwear, results it reveals are pretty encouraging.


The examination of the patient was conducted according to the Declaration of Helsinki principles.
