Aloe Gel
Aloe is known to have countless therapeutic remedies. The aloe plant is native to southern Africa, particularly the northern, eastern, and Western Capes. Traditionally in these parts of Africa, gel from the aloe plant has been used as a treatment for the soreness and tenderness of hemorrhoids. Aloe leaf gel, which is taken from a cut leaf, is used internally, primarily as a stimulant laxative.

Internal and external hemorrhoids are caused by repeated pressure from straining during bowel movements causing viens to enlarge. A high-fiber diet can be effective, along with over-the-counter medications, such as stool softeners. However, it's common knowledge and practice for centuries by herbalists in Southern Africa to create an aloe drink which makes stool softer and easier to pass.
