Hemorrhoids can be both embarrassing and irritating. These swollen blood vessels appearing on the outside of the body can cause pain, itching and burning. The good news, however, is that there is relief. Cure hemorrhoids by following this system of care.
- Drink lots of water. Water is fundamental to digestive health. One of the leading reasons for the constipation and painful bowel movements that lead to hemorrhoids is a lack of water during the digestive process. Drink eight glasses of water every day.
- Make fiber a regular part of your diet. Adding fiber to your diet helps aid the digestive process as well. Fiber is found in many raw fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains. If you do not have regular bowel movements, a shortage of fiber may be the reason. If you can’t seem to get enough fiber through your diet, consider taking supplements, either chewable tablets or a fiber solution mixed into a beverage.
- Don’t strain to make bowel movements. Straining causes the blood vessels to swell and to appear outside the body. Avoid straining. If constipation is a problem, drink more water and try again later.
- Relax with a warm bath. When the itching and burning of hemorrhoids is at its worst, soak in a soothing bath.
- Try a natural remedy. There are several options of natural remedies. I recommend Holly Hayden's all-natural hemorrhoid cure.
You should try different treatment methods one at a time to see which will work for you. Do not mix them together. Another method is to apply a natural topical of vitamin E, aloe, coconut oil or apple cider vinegar. Apply directly onto the hemorrhoids.
- Apply an over-the-counter cream treatment. Most over-the-counter options include a hydrocortisone combination and can be effective in both relieving the symptoms of itching and burning and in reducing the inflammation of hemorrhoids.
- Contact your doctor. If you've tried the above treatments and they haven't worked, your may need to resort to surgery. Your doctor can provide you with possible procedures.
Cases of hemorrhoids vary in severity. You may have to experiment a bit before you find a way to treat hemorrhoids that works effectively for you. Still, if you try, you should be able to cure your bothersome hemorrhoids.
