Hemorrhoids are highly prevalent among population with different degrees of severity. Its management includes non-operative and operative approaches. The main objective of the present study is to describe a new non-operative approach in the treatment of hemorrhoids by the use of the crude extract of Alhagi graecorum in olive oil. This extract has been used by a large number of patients. The results were more than encouraging since patients with hemorrhoids were very satisfied in terms of pain disappearance and healing of hemorrhoids. In some cases, patients were subjecting to surgery to remove hemorrhoids and the results were tragedy in terms of acute pain and hemorrhage post-surgery. The use of this extract was a very effective solution. Taken together, the use of the crude extract of Alhagi graecorum in olive oil has a high efficacy in treating different types of hemorrhoids and its use is considered a non-operative effective alternative.
