5 Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Rectal Prolapse

Though not a debilitating disease, rectal prolapse can throw life out of gear for a person by virtue of the fact that it entails the falling down of a part of the rectum from its normal position. Homeopathic Treatment can be effective in assuaging the discharge and discomfort resulting from rectal prolapse without the fear of side-effects. Homeopathic remedies for rectal prolapse go to the root of the problem and cure the underlying causes of this condition.  homeopathic medicines for rectal prolapse

Symptoms of Prolapse Rectum

A person suffering from this condition manifests a couple of symptoms, ranging from discomfort and pain in the rectal region; mucoid discharges from the anus and bleeding from the rectum to fecal incontinence and difficulty in passing stools.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for Rectal Prolapse

I feel the homeopathic system of medicine can work wonders in curing prolapsed rectum since it is natural and non-toxic compared to other treatments as its remedies are culled from Nature. Podophyllum, Ignatia, Aesculus, Hydrastis, are the top remedies.

1. Podophyllum: When Rectum Prolapse Occurs while Passing Stool

I find podophyllum to be one of the most frequently indicated remedies in cases of a prolapsed rectum. The rectum may get prolapsed either before or during the passing of stools. There may be a sore pain in the anus. Podophyllum may be prescribed in children with complaints of prolapse of the rectum. Proper inquiry generally reveals that there is a history of chronic constipation.  All the symptoms are associated with a weakness in the abdomen and anus. There may be constant anxiety due to the pain in the anus. The prolapsed part of the rectum may remain protruded for a long time, particularly in children.

2. Ignatia: When Rectum Prolapse Occurs Even with Soft Stool

Ignatia is also a very good remedy for prolapsed rectum. Ignatia may be prescribed when the parts protrude with soft stools and remain intact with hard stools. The pain may be sharp and shooting in nature. The pain radiates upwards and may get worse after passing stools. The pain subsides considerably when the patient is in a sitting posture. There may be a tight, constrictive feeling around the opening of the anus. Ignatia may be given when there is a constant pressure as if some sharp instrument was protruding from the rectum into the anus. All complaints get aggravated in the mornings, after eating food, and on getting warmth. The patient feels better by changing the posture and when he is in a sitting posture.

3. Ruta Graveolens: Prolapse occurs After Straining or after Delivery

This remedy is very well indicated in cases of a prolapsed rectum. Ruta may be particularly prescribed in cases which occur due to complications after childbirth. The stools may be constipated and can be passed only with great straining and difficulty. Sitting is the worst position because it makes the pain get worse. The pain sensation is as if the rectum and anus are being pricked with sticks. Some part of the rectum comes down the anus each time when the stools are passed. Ruta may be given when there is protrusion of the rectum during an attempt to bend or stoop forward. Winters are the worst time for the patients as the pains become unbearable.

4. Aesculus: When Rectal Prolapse is Due to Chronic Piles

Aesculius hippo is a remedy known for its remarkable results on the anus and rectum. It may be prescribed in persons suffering from chronic piles leading to a prolapsed rectum. The sensation of pain is that of the rectum being filled with sticks. There may be intense burning pain in the anus which radiates up to the back. I feel Aesculus is also suitable for women who suffer from prolapsed rectum during the menopausal or post-menopausal period. There may be a sensation of swelling in the anus and passing stools is very painful and difficult. The most prominent feature that calls for a prescription of Aesculus is a constant backache which may incapacitate the person so much that he or she is unable to perform the daily chores.

5. Hydrastis: For Rectal Prolapse in Children

Hydrastis is a remedy especially effective in cases of the prolapsed rectum in children. The child may be constipated and cries while passing stools on account of pain. There may be much swelling in the anus and rectum with congestion. The complaints may be associated with fissures in the anus. This gives rise to much burning in the anus during the passing of stools. The pain lasts for a long time after passing stools.

  9. Maria Miranda says:

    Hi, my 87 year old mother has been diagnosed with Rectal Prolapse and so the Colo Rectal Surgeon has prescribed Rectal Prolapse Altemeier Repair surgery but as my mother is diabetic and has heart issues as well a Stent Implant since 2008. Also she is not very mobile as she has Osteo arthritis of the knees as well as in her shoulders. She needs help with her day to day activities like getting out and in bed, eating, bathing, sitting, standing , walking etc.
    After reading the above article, looks like she comes under the #3 Ruta Graveolens: Prolapse occurs After Straining category.
    What are the options for my mother in Homeopathy if we do not want the surgery ?
    Thank you in advance!

  16. Rick Nichols says:

    I have had rectal prolapse before and managed to be able to push it back in.
    But this time it is larger and feels tender to the touch, and seems like it could benefit from something that would help shrink the tissues before I push them back.
    I know this question is geared more toward finding immediate relief rather than longer term remedy,
    but is there something I can apply to the protruding rectal tissues to help shrink them?
    Granulated sugar?
    Thank you 🙏
