Good Health Remedies for Hemorrhoids

Natural health remedies for hemorrhoids are wonderful because they focus not just on pain, discomfort, and inflammation relief but also on actual healing. It is one thing to cover or mask symptoms and quite another to actually address and get rid of the problem.

I remember when I was pregnant, years ago, and developed hemorrhoids. That was a very painful, frustrating time in my life, which, years later, ended in surgery.

I have to tell you...I would not wish that experience on anyone. If only I knew then what I know now.

The main cause of hemorrhoids is constipation. And constipation can be caused by quite a few things. For example, not having a balanced diet, not listening and following through when the body gives the signal to eliminate stool, medications, certain types of iron tablets, not drinking enough water, and the list goes on to include various allopathic, synthetic drugs as culprits too.

Hemorrhoids can also be caused by aging, obesity, lifting heavy objects, straining trying to have a bowel movement, diarrhea, and anal sex.

During pregnancy, hemorrhoids can be caused by the pressure of the fetus on the abdomen, by hormonal changes, and by the enlarged hemorrhoidal vessels put under dire pressure while giving birth to a child.

There are four types of hemorrhoids. The four types are internal, external, prolapsed, and thrombosed.

Internal hemorrhoids can be relatively pain free but they do bleed occasionally and should not be ignored.

External hemorrhoids can be very painful. They can bleed out a bright red blood in the toilet or on your toilet tissue which can also be very frightening. They swell, become inflamed, and also itch sometimes.

The prolapsed hemorrhoids are partially internal and external. If they are not taken care of...they usually become external hemorrhiods.

The thrombosed hemorrhoids are very, very painful. They form blood clots just under the skin in the veins of the rectum. And they are deep purple or bluish in color. It doesn't take much for them to become irritated, inflamed, and swollen.

Many people have surgery to take care of the problem of hemorrhoids. They just want to be done with the situation of pain. Others opt for various treatments and decide to try to use a lot of different over the counter products and prescription medication seeking help. Many of those products simply cause more irritation and end up being a waste of time and money.

While surgery, and I can tell you from personal experience, does work to a certain extent...if you don't address the cause of the problem, hemorrhoids can reoccur.

Here are some things you can do to make sure hemorrhoids don't come back again. Never strain when you have bowel movements. Drink plenty of water. Eat lots of organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables and other foods that contain enough fiber for your specific daily requirements. Don't lift heavy objects. When your body tells you it is time to go potty, go!

Don't forget, it is also very important to work on healing your body, not just masking symptoms.

It is better to avoid this condition if at all possible.

Natural health remedies are the way to go for the best results and works best with your body for better health. :-)
