ClearMed is one of the most popular choices for treating hemorrhoid and constipation and many people have found it to be effective in providing long-term relief and cure. Like all products, however, it has its pros and cons and some people may find it more effective than others, depending on their particular case. With that said it is still one of the best herbal treatments for hemorrhoids available in the market because it combines potent ingredients that target the source, ease the symptoms, and eliminate recurrence.
Not for Everyone
Most people suffering from constipation or hemorrhoids do not need to take medicines, herbal or otherwise. Changing one's diet, increasing the intake of fiber and water, and exercising regularly are better ways for treating or easing constipation and hemorrhoids. Medication is only an alternative to these measures, if these measures are found to be ineffective. In general, it is still best to consult a physician regarding the intake of medicines and supplements.
ClearMed is an all-natural product that contains six ingredients: horse chestnut leaf, witch hazel leaf, blond psyllium, ginger root, diosmin and hesperdin. All these herbs work together to target the root of the problem. Horse chestnut contains anti-inflammatory properties known as aescin, which reduces swelling. Witch hazel leaf, diosmin and hesperdin all strengthen the walls of the veins and help promote blood circulation through the veins, preventing swelling caused by hemorrhoids. Diosmin and hesperdin, both flavonoids, are also potent antioxidants that protect and boost immunity. Ginger root is known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. It helps tone the intestinal muscles and aids in digestion. Blond psyllium is a type of husk rich in fiber and is used as a laxative and stool bulking agent to improve the consistency of stool, making it easier to pass through the intestines.
ClearMed is produced in a laboratory that is certified by the FDA and thus follows the highest industry standards. The manufacturer also offers a 100% satisfaction or money back guarantee on the treatment of internal and external hemorrhoids, relief of hemorrhoid symptoms, prevention of recurrence and support in digestion and elimination.
ClearMed does not promise instant relief and may take 5 days to a week to take full effect. Some people may also experience gastro-intestinal problems with it such as stomach irritation or cramps, flatulence, gas, and bleeding (caused by the ginger root). Drinking a lot of water is important when taking psyllium because it can coagulate in and clog the intestines.
ClearMed is not recommended for long term use for pregnant women and may have contra-indications with other drugs or herbs that contain alkaloids, which may interfere with its absorption. In general, people with other medical conditions, taking other medications, and pregnant and lactating women should consult their doctor before taking ClearMed. Some drugs that may interact with ClearMed include Acetaminophen with Codeine, Atropine, Acyclovir Oral, Cardec DM, Chemotherapy, Codeine, Cisplatin, Cyclophosphamide, Docetaxel, Ephedrine and Pseudoephedrine, Fluorouracil, General Anesthetics, HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors (Statins), Heparin, Lomotil/Lonox, Lithium, Methotrexate, Mesalamine, Nitrous Oxide, Orlistat, Paclitaxel, Simvastatin, Ticlopidine, Theophylline/Aminophylline, and Warfarin.
