Anamu (Petiveria alliacea)
Anamu is a plant of the rain forest that grows up to one meter in heights with green leaves laying close to the ground. It can be found in Central and South America as well as certain regions in Africa and the Caribbean. While not widely spread, it is well known to herbal and alternative medicine and is used for a variety of applications.
For the purpose of curing hemorrhoids we are using Anamu for four of its healing properties. While they are many more areas to apply the plant, we are only naming those therapeutic relevant to hemorrhoids.
1. Reduces pain
2. Strengthen your immune system
3. Reduces inflammation
4. Reduces spasm (this is particularly important for relaxing the anal muscles, contracting to compensate the pain, hereby causing additional interruption of blood flow)
