Hemorrhoid Self-Defense 


Did you know that an estimated 10 million people in America suffer from hemorrhoids? 

The type you fee are external hemorrhoids. There are also internal hemorrhoids but it is best to see your doctor if you have symptoms of internal hemorrhoids. The symptoms often include bleeding from the rectum. This is also a sign of much more serious problems.

Generally, to combat hemorrhoids you need to eat more high-fiber foods like fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Drinking at least six cups of water also helps. 

Stay active. Don't sit so much. The more you stay on your feet the better the result. This reduces pressure in anal and rectal veins. Other regular exercise like Yoga also helps to get rid of hemorrhoids.

Regular exercise is particularly helpful for pregnant women. Try lying on your back for 15 minutes to take the pressure off the affected veins.

Some herbs that have been used successfully for hemorrhoids include:

Pilewort - This herb can strengthen your blood vessels and help stop bleeding. 

Witch Hazel - another herb that prevents swelling and bleeding. 

Aloe Vera - this natural plant can be compared to asprin. It is known to relieve many ailments including hemorrhoids.
