Hemorrhoids can be distressing, painful and embarrassing. No one likes to talk about piles, yet 75% of American adults will suffer from it at least once in their lifetimes. As there are many remedies you can use, today we examine Tush MD. The man behind the formula is a board-certified colon and rectal surgeon. He developed a natural oral medication to help relieve pile symptoms and manage constipation. The formula was developed in response to the many expensive, often ineffective remedies perceived to be on the market. Tush MD is therefore touted as an alternative to invasive remedies such as surgery.
Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins in the anal area, just as varicose veins are enlarged in the legs. Too much pressure from straining, sitting, pregnancy or excess weight can cause this vein to ‘pop’. The result is often discomfort, itching, swelling, pain and even blood in the stool. Piles can be external, in which case you can see and feel them around the anus. Alternatively, they can be internal, such as in the rectum.
The anorectal surgeon behind Tush MD contends that these all-natural capsules will provide you with thorough relief in 2 to 7 days.
- Witch Hazel
Bromelain is known as a digestive aid and an anti-inflammatory agent. It is made from the stem or husk of the pineapple. Research has shown that bromelain can reduce blood clots and clumping, which is why using blood thinners together with Tush MD is not recommended. Witch hazel is an astringent which helps to contract blood vessels so that they shrink. Psyllium is a ‘true’ dietary fiber which softens stool and helps you go to the bathroom more regularly.
Together these ingredients are like a one-two-three triangulate of targeted symptom relievers that shrinks the actual pile. In addition, they also address the two primary causes: hard or tough stool, and blood flow (along with vein strength).
Possible side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, menorrhagia and allergic reactions. Stop using the product and see your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.
Take one to three tablets a day with water. You should feel relief within 2 to 7 days. There should be a complete cessation of reoccuring piles within 45 days. There are no specific warnings related to pregnant or lactating women but if you are not sure, consult your physician. If you have blood in your stool, you should always see a doctor regardless of any medication, especially if you are over 50. Do not take if you are using blood thinners, or anticoagulants or if you have a pineapple allergy. You may be at higher risk for an allergic reaction if you’re allergic to honeybee stings.
One bottle of 30 tablets retails for $25 online. This is more or less a ten-day’s supply. The price drops to $23 if you buy 3 or more bottles.
A 45-day money back guarantee is in place by the manufacturer. You may return the product, used or unopened, if for any reason you have not been satisfied with the results.
Tush MD Review – Conclusion
As there is a patent pending on the proprietary blend of the main three ingredients, no amounts or daily values were readily obtainable. We would have liked to know what the potency contained in the formula is. The product garners good reviews. It is not for you of you are primarily looking to treat constipation, although that is one of the symptoms addressed – use it specifically to shrink your piles. In a clinical setting, 97% of people found that the product helped.
It does have more listed side effects than most formulas though. We are not sure if this is simply due to hyper-transparency or not, since few of these side effects have actually been reported. The product is also not for you if you are already taking blood thinners due to a heart ailment, for example. If you are concerned that an oral medication alone may not help, we suggest looking for a 2-in-1 product consisting of an oral and cream component as these are available. Make sure that a proper guarantee is in place, and that potent pile symptom relievers such as Hesperidin, Diosmin, Rutin and Butcher’s Broom are all available in the product.
