If the uncomfortable presence of swollen, burning hemorrhoids is ruining your day, natural herbal therapies like Mimosa pudica may be an avenue for relief. It’s backed by at least 500 years of traditional use and contains no synthetic compounds or harmful chemicals. That’s more than can be said for many of the conventional medications available at your local drugstore.
In Ayurvedic medicine, Mimosa pudica is known as lajjalu and its inclusion within the system is not because of its dancing leaves, but the therapeutic benefits the compounds within the plant offers. Many hemorrhoid sufferers have experienced relief as a result of this special plant’s pharmacological profile and antioxidant activity.
