I need a remedy for someone who is constantly bleeding when going to bathroom. No constipation involved. Thanks Lorraine

Lorraine: Constant bleeding going to the bathroom might be an even more serious condition, such as cancer. However, if cancer is ruled out, then take plenty of vitamin C (1000 mg), and vitamin K2 (they have standard dose).

As a precaution, take 1/4 teaspoon baking soda + 1/4 citric acid to 1/2 glass of water before bedtime. There is a very remote possibility that acidity can cause bleeding so by alkalizing or neutralizing should help you with the condition. Improvement should be seen within 2-3 days. If these home remedies do not work, then seek medical attention.
