Here's a site that has a lot of information about how to heal fissures from people who have had to deal with it first hand, and have found results.
Just for starters, I would highly recommend vitamin C, at least 5,000 mg a day in divided doses, in a buffered powder form. Vitamin C heals bleeding
wounds faster than anything, and is inexpensive and useful for so many health issues, it should really be on everyone's list as a daily first
supplement. It will build your immune system very quickly so that your system can heal.
Also consider trying probiotic enzymes with every meal. What a difference these have made in my digestive and GI problems! Take a probiotic with your
meals. I just looked up probiotics at vitacost, a natural vitamin site, and ordered the most popular brand, which was relatively inexpensive and very
Also check into supplementing with vitamin B6 (see link above), zinc (ditto), and with aloe vera gel internally and externally.
For fiber, I highly recommend acacia root powder. It is an all soluble fiber, meaning it will not irritate or harm your intestinal tract or rectum.

Research Doctor Yourself for ideas, too, using its internal search box.
Simple supplements like vitamin C and B6 will probably surprise you by their efficacy. This product called HemClear also sounds good, and looking at
its ingredients list, it would probably be hard to replicate it by yourself, even though it's all herbal.

I feel strongly that if you follow your intuition in reading about how others healed, and if you will give supplements and a good diet a fair shot,
you will find relief. Good luck!
