13 Tips on How to Get Rid of Hemorrhoids

Everyone once in their lifetime probably had problems with hemorrhoids, and many know what a torment it was each time going to the bathroom.

It is not for comfort, but every other person older than 50 years has hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are more susceptible to pregnant women, overweight and inactive people, as well as those who do not pay attention to their diet and take in excessive amounts of refined, processed foods.

Symptoms include painless bright red bleeding, pain during bowel movements and itching. For internal hemorrhoids you can see a trail of blood on the toilet paper, but it is a bigger problem if internal hemorrhoids come out from the anus – then the whole area hurts, itches and it is very sensitive.

A trigger for hemorrhoids is usually constipation, due to increased pressure in the blood vessels when straining during bowel movements. Constipation also worsens the condition, because of the already existing hemorrhoids, because the colon and rectum are under pressure, so they mechanically scratch the dilated veins, thus intensifying.

Prevention should mainly be based on healthy eating.

To save yourself from eventually having a surgical removal of the hemorrhoids, it is best if you follow these tips:

1. If you are overweight, lose some weight, because of excessive weight you have a greater load on the whole body – the blood circulation and the digestive system. Get plenty of dietary fiber to prevent constipation and maintain the health of your blood vessels. Make sure that your diet is varied and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, seeds and nuts. Avoid spicy food, because it irritates the inflamed body part.

2. Regularly eat soup or stew, and drink more water than the recommended 2 liters, for a softer stool.

3. Try, if you can, not to spend a lot of time sitting, because in addition to not burning calories you insufficiently stimulate the blood circulation.

4. Discharge should not be too short, but also not with straining. Long sitting on the toilet increases the pressure on the anus.

    I suffered from hemorrhoids for several years. Eating more water-soluable fiber and fiber in general just didn’t work for me. In the end, my doctor suggested a non-intrusive procedure called banding. It’s like it sounds. He lubes up your poop ahole then inserts a device that keeps the cavity open so that it’s easier for him to use another tool to tie a rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid. The idea is to starve the tissue of blood so that it falls off in a day or two.

    I wish I had this done a long time ago rather than wait as long as I did. It was very uncomfortable though when the rubber band was first placed. I describe this as a mixture of having to go number 1 and 2 and wanting to reach sexual climax. It was 40%, 40%, and 20%. You’ll want to take the rest of the day off because of this.

    Oh, when it does finally fall off and you have to go number 2, it then becomes the most uncomfortable sensation in the world as your poo is basically pressing against an open sore. You basically have to go right then and there.

    So, that’s full disclosure and what many sites fail to cover or ignore. Other than that, I’m glad my hemorrhoids no longer disrupt my life. It’s also amazing how a tiny bit of tissue can cause so much grief.
