  Lavender (Lavender latifolia) was given to a dying 86 years old woman who had been suffering from piles for the last 45 years with an emerged fistula of more than 6 inches which used to bleed daily. She stopped taking drugs prescribed by physician as they were not performing effects due to resistance to drugs. In such a situation the patient was feeling severe pain in stomach and more bleeding in stools. The alternative treatment was performed by an oral intake of 5 drops of lavender in 5 ml of water three times a day along with a teaspoonful of each of Diegene, Liv-52 (Himalaya) and multiple vitamins syrup. About 18 gms of proteins in the form of Horlicks was also given to the patient. After 10 days of treatments the patient condition became stable resulting in complete stoppage of blood in the stools and also relieved from the stomach pain.

It was also observed the patient recognized every person of the family confirming a best function of gut-brain axis which is disturbed by specific overgrowth of bacteria.

In conclusion it may be proved that lavender kills the microbes in the gut, relieves from pain and maintains a good homeostasis between gut and brain. It may be a potential alternative in treating piles even in chronic condition.
