Top 10 Homeopathic Remedies for Anal Fissures

Homeopathic Remedies for Anal Fissure

Homeopathic Remedies for Anal Fissure

Passing stool or poop is meant to be the most effortless function of the body but when this becomes a difficult and painful exercise, the result can be nothing short of traumatic for the patient.

Anal Fissure is a result of the trauma caused by the passage of hard, long stool (constipation) and repeated episodes of diarrhea. In women, it may follow the delivery (vaginal delivery) of a child. Anal Fissure actually refers to a tear in the anus. Anus, of course, is the opening that marks the lower end of the gastro-intestinal system of the body ó the opening through which stool is passed out of the body.

Symptoms of Anal Fissures

The main symptoms are pain in the anal region during passing stool and in some patients, the pain may continue even after passing stool, which is accompanied by bleeding too. The other symptoms include hard stool, itching in the anus and in a few longstanding fissure cases, offensive discharge from the anus.

Homeopathic Treatment for Anal Fissures

Made of natural substances with zero side effects, it can be beneficial and of great help in providing relief and working as a remedy for the treatment of Anal Fissures. It works by using bodyís own restorative processes and is considered very safe. It can only help, never harm.

Best Homeopathic Remedies for Anal Fissures

Nitric Acid

Nitric Acid is extremely beneficial and helpful in cases where there are stitching and tearing pains in the anus, or the pain is cutting or stinging in nature. The stool passed is hard, and is accompanied by bright red bleeding from the anus.


Ratanhia is an effective medicine for the treatment of Anal Fissures and is particularly beneficial as a remedy for long-lasting pains in the rectum with excessive burning that follows stool passage. Patients often describe the pain as being similar to broken glass or a knife piercing in the rectum. The stool requires much effort to be passed out due to the constricted anus. Ratanhia is the Homeopathic medicine that can work wonders in such a situation.


Paeonia is the best remedy for offensive discharge from the anus due to cracks in it. Paeonia is also the best medicine for violent pains in the anus during and after passing stool. The anus is ulcerated and fissured. Itching and burning usually accompany the fissures. Like all Homeopathic medicines, Paeonia has no side effects and can be of great help in treatment of Anal Fissures with offensive discharge.


Sulphur works well where the stool is hard and dry, causing tears and immense pain in the anus while passage. The patient is fearful of even going to the toilet as he thinks of the pain that will accompany the passage of stool. Sulphur is of great help in reducing the pain and softening the stool. The pain is almost always accompanied by burning. Itching in anus due to fissures is best controlled with the use of Sulphur.

Sedum Acre

It may be a lesser known Homeopathic medicine, but Sedum Acre can be very beneficial in providing relief and reducing the anal pains of constricting character following stool.

Aesculus and Ratanhia

Aesculus can be of great help if you are experiencing severe pain in the anus following stool passage. The stool or poop passed is mainly hard and large followed by severe pains. Homeopathic medicine Ratanhia is the best remedy when both pain and burning in anus follow the passage of stool. This burning and pain continue for several hours after passing stool. Applying cold water over the anus may have some soothing effect, but it is Ratanhia, which has zero side effects, that can be really beneficial as a remedy for the pain.

Nitric Acid and Phosphorus

Nitric Acid can be used to control bright red blood passing from the anus along with stool. The bleeding is accompanied by a tearing and stitching pain in the anus. Phosphorus is yet another medicine that can be used as a treatment for bleeding from the anus when the stool is long and hard with much offensiveness.


Sulphur is the best natural medicine for dealing with itching in the anus. Sulphur has a very powerful ability to control itching in the anus. Itching in anus may also be accompanied by a burning sensation.

Paeonia and Silicea

Paeonia can be used when offensive fluid is discharged from the longstanding Anal Fissures. The anus seems ulcerated and torn with intolerable pain during and after stool passage.

Silicea is the best choice when the discharge contains the pus of offensive odour. The stool is passed with difficulty and straining. The stool comes out partially and then recedes again.

Bryonia, Alumina and Natrum Mur: For relieving Anal Fissure constipation

Bryonia can be used in all cases where the stool is very hard, dry and large, leading to Anal Fissures. Bryonia will help in softening the stool and thereby preventing the tears in the anus that occur due to hard stool. Homeopathic medicine Alumina is mainly given when constipation is of the worst kind. The stool remains in the rectum for very long. The stool is hard and knotty and passes with difficulty, causing cracks and bleeding from the anus.

Natrum Mur provides help when the stool is hard and dry. Stool breaks frequently while passing due to constriction of anus. Bleeding and pain of burning, smarting and stitching nature follow the passage of stool.

Managing Anal Fissures – Dietary guidelines for anal fissure

Eat a High-Fiber Diet

People with chronic constipation, passing dry and large stools, have higher chances of developing fissures. Adding up fiber from a variety of fruits and vegetables in the patientsí diet can make a big difference. 20 to 35 gm of dietary fibers on a daily basis can boost the health of your digestive tract. Citrus fruits, prunes, lentils, chickpeas, nuts, whole grains including brown rice and oatmeal are rich sources of fiber. Whole grain pastas and cereals can also make a great choice for a high fiber diet. It is important to slowly increase the fiber-rich diet unless the patient starts noticing regular bowel movements without pain.
Fiber is a power nutrient that can get your digestive system into shape. Moreover, fibers are considered essential for running your intestinal system smoothly.
In general, food items that are low in fiber and high in saturated fat cause constipation problem. Consuming whole grains instead of highly processed grains can help you increase your daily fiber intake. Similarly, eating whole fruits and raw vegetables instead of drinking juice is a healthier way of getting fibers and antioxidants. Juicing process removes almost all of the natural fibers.

Get More Fluids

Keeping yourself hydrated is an easy and natural way of preventing dry and hard stool. Make sure to consume plenty of clear fluids, mainly water in order to get a soft stool that can pass through the colon without causing pain or discomfort. Overconsumption of some of the beverages such as alcohol and caffeinated drinks can also cause severe dehydration, so stay away from them as much as possible. You can replace soda and caffeinated drinks with plain water, lemonade or warm milk.

Foods to Avoid

Foods that cause constipation and aggravate fissures should be avoided. These include high fat and low fiber snacks like chips and sugary doughnuts, cheesy pizza, and burger, etc., if you’re dealing with tummy troubles. Frozen meals, packaged foods, and convenience meat products go through a lot of processing and are also high in sodium. They can make your bowel movement tough. If constipation problem is not treated in time, it can make your anal fissure worse.

Refined Flour

Enriched /refined flour is heavily processed flour that has no germ or bran; due to the effect of high pressure and temperature, all necessary nutrients like vitamin, mineral and fiber content are lost. Therefore, enriched bread, pasta, cereals and snack foods should be replaced with whole grain food items. While buying such food items, check that the whole grains are indicated as their main ingredients. If you maintain your daily fiber intake to 25 to 30 g per day, you can avoid painful, thick stool and guard yourself against constipation.

Added Sugars

Added sugar only adds calories and contains no nutritional value. Eating too many sugary foods can wreak havoc on your digestive health. So, try to cut down on sugary items such as jellies, candies, ice-creams, sugary cereals, and sweetened drinks, etc.

High-fat Meats

Fatty meats like bacon, pork, beef sticks, and lamb are high on saturated fat and low on fiber. Apart from constipation, fatty foods increase your chances of developing obesity and diabetes. Instead of choosing a meat-rich diet, you should prefer fiber-rich protein sources like chickpeas, black beans, lentils, and split peas, etc.

Making certain lifestyle changes can significantly reduce the chances of developing anal fissures. Here are some tips that can help prevent anal fissure from interfering with your day-to-day life:

Take a Warm Sitz Bath

Taking a soothing sitz bath, particularly after bowel movements, may help relax the spasm; it may also improve the blood flow to the anus. Apart from this, a sitz bath is a simple and easy way to clean the anus area without causing more pain by rubbing the irritated anoderm.
It ís best to clean the anus with lukewarm water without using perfumed soap or body-cleaning products. Daily use of hard soaps for cleaning anus can make the delicate lining of your anal canal very dry and prone to tears or cracks.

Apply Organic Coconut Oil to the Anal Sphincter

It is a well-known fact that coconut oil works as an excellent lubricant and also makes it easier for hard stool to pass. The medicinal properties of coconut oil help treat wounds, sores and other skin lesions. It is safe and works as a positive healing agent for fissure wounds.

  10. Dear Dr
    I am 42 yrs old and facing the problem of anal fissure for last one year. On the first bleeding I took bryonia 30 once. After 3 – 4 days it vanished and then suddenly recured a month back and is a continuous problem since then. Almost daily there is secretion of pus and blood oozes after a gap of few days but incidentally there is no accompanied pain. I consulted an homeopath and according to him I took Nitric acid 200 daily one dose and silicea 200 for some days. Then after 4 Days of Nitric acid 10M I am asked to take it once a week. And on other days to take a dose of Lycopodium 200 in the morning and silicea 200 in the evening. Pls guide if the trend is OK as my situation remains still the same with daily secretion of pus with blood at intervals.
