Product Merit

Hem-Relief, marketed by Western Herbal and Nutrition, is one of the oldest hemorrhoid treatments offered today. Like so many treatments offering hemorrhoids relief, Hem-Relief’s top three ingredients consist of witch hazel leaf, horse chestnut leaf and ginger root.

While I agree that the active compounds in witch hazel (tannins) and horse chestnut (aescin) are vital for effective hemorrhoids relief, I believe Hem-Relief falls short by limiting its hemorrhoid formula to only these three ingredients and by not using more advanced, safer extracts that standardize potency of the active compounds. Typically included with horse chestnut in hemorrhoid formulations, bilberry would also be a huge addition to this otherwise-incomplete hemorrhoids remedy.


At $39.95 for a bottle of 90 capsules ($.89 cents per serving), Hem-Relief falls about in the middle of the $.47 cent to $2.22 per-serving price range for comparable hemorrhoid treatments. Volume discounts are available and you can buy Hem-Relief for as little as $26.65 per bottle if you’re willing to pay $159.90 to buy it six bottles at a time.

Customer Service

I have contacted Western Herbal and Nutrition's customer service department by phone, email and live chat many times. Their staff is knowledgeable about their product and hemorrhoids in general and presents a genuine desire to help their customers.


Both Hem-Relief and its maker, Western Herbal and Nutrition, have a strong online reputation. Western Herbal and Nutrition, Inc. is a registered business with the California Secretary of State's Office and Western Herbal and Nutrition provides adequate methods to contact them with questions or to return Hem-Relief for a refund if it doesn't work.

Internal Hemorrhoids


External Hemorrhoids



Hem-Relief's ingredient claims have merit in a hemorrhoid treatment. Hem-Relief is affordable and the company has an overall positive reputation and a customer service staff that is knowledgeable about Hem-Relief and hemorrhoids, but Hem-Relief may be missing key nutrients for the fastest hemorrhoids relief, making Hem-Relief our second choice in our list of leading hemorrhoid treatments.
