Hemorrhoids are nothing more than the incidence of swollen blood vessels found in the anal area or at the lower end of the rectum. This malady is not dangerous and the most it does is to cause temporary inconvenience to the sufferer. There are many conventional ways to treat this ailment and this includes the use of surgery. However you can use home remedies to overcome hemorrhoids.
Advice from the physician that you go for surgery would not be at all necessary and there is no reason to waste your time and money. Medical interventions include rubber ligation, hemorrhoidectomy, sclerotherapy, and infrared coagulation. Not only are these procedures painful, they will also leave unbearable side effects to the patient. Why bother with these then?
You can use the following steps to remove hemorrhoids:
Drink plenty of water. This will add bulk to the contents in the intestine and keep you hydrate. Thus the end result will be consistency in the stools during defecation.
Use sitz bath at least three times daily. This consists of submerging your buttocks into a basin containing plain warm water. This will alleviate pain and swelling and will also shrink the hemorrhoids. Aside plain water, you can also add in Epsom salt or any herbal salt into the bath but do not use perfume or soapy solution in the bath as this will cause unnecessary irritation.
Check your daily food intake and ensure that your diet contains plenty of fibers. Avoid sugary foods including foods high in carbohydrates. You must ensure that your diet contain plenty of fibers. Fibers can be easily obtained from fruits and vegetables. They are also available from whole grains including oats and rice. These fibers will absorb water and provide bulk to the feces. If there are soft stools, then there will be no straining on defecation. You should also avoid constipating foods including cheese, eggs, meat, wheat and refined grains.
I also advise the consumption of supplements to minimize the effects of hemorrhoids. Supplements are necessary as these are the only nutrients that the body cells regularly lack in. I have customers who followed my advice and they were speedily cleared of hemorrhoids. I advocate the taking of multi vitamins and minerals tablet once daily, a 1000 mg capsule of Omega 3 supplement and Vitamin C 1000 mg tablet. These supplements will regulate bowel movement, reduce and prevent inflammation as well as strengthen the blood vessels thereby assisting in the prevention of hemorrhoidal bleeding. Make sure that the Vitamin C supplement also contains rutin, hespiridin and the bioflavoids as these will assist in strengthening the blood vessel walls.
