A touchy subject (hemorrhoids & varicose veins)

It's one of those subjects that no one wants to talk about. 
Hemorrhoids: painful dilation of blood vessels in the anus
Varicose Vein: swollen, twisted, & sometimes painful veins that have filled with an abnormal collection of  blood.

The problem is, when no one talks about it no one gets help.  You can go to a doctor & they can tell you to buy OTC treatments.  Or you can have surgery.  The surgery has plenty of risks involved & is pretty painful I must say.  (I haven't had it, but for those that don't know, I'm a nurse & have known plenty of people who have had it)

When I do have someone brave enough to ask me (because I'm a nurse) what to do for these things I am always happy.  I am happy because I do know of an OTC natural product that is extremely effective.  Hubby & I even had a friend of our family who suffered for YEARS & was finally told they had to have surgery.  They called hubby (knowing that hubby & I are into natural treatments) & we shared this with the person & a couple of weeks later they called back & couldn't thank us enough. 

Based on the feedback I've gotten from several people you don't have to take it forever, but you should take it for a little while after symptoms disappear.  And then sometimes you need to take it again, like a year or two later.  But for the most part the problem is healed completely. 

I cannot recommend this highly enough.  I hope this will help some people who can't bring themselves to ask for help or don't know who to ask.
