Here’s what I say >>>

Very good thought process producing a very good question because I use it anways for similar purposes.

So why don’t they use peppermint oil as a natural way to calm the spasming which causes the pain?

I’ve had 2 sigmoidoscopies rather than colonoscopies and I believe that this treatment would also work for that.   Both times I had a procedure done at the same time.  The first one they removed 3 polyps the second they banded internal hemorrhoids

I use peppermint a lot as a treatment for my bowel / digestive disorders and find it helps a lot.  Some people actually take peppermint capsules daily as a way to help with IBS as well for instance, which I have also used it for.

I also underwent STARR procedure 5 years ago and it could have helped then as well, don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself.

“Personally, I think that it will have a lot to do with no-one being willing to accredit it as a treatment because it will be seen as a homeopathic remedy!”
