This post is about both preventing and curing hemorrhoids.  Did you know that diet is the reason that most people get hemorrhoids?  A modern American diet of empty calories and foods striped of healthy fiber.  It is possible to go through the day and eat 2 or 3 thousand calories and not get enough good fiber, good carbohydrates, and also not get proper amounts of nutrients and micro nutrients: a natural hemorrhoid cure is possible.

1.  A high fiber diet is possibly the most important thing you can do for hemorrhoids because often they are caused by hard stools and constipation.  Fiber alone is not the thing, but the right fiber from vegetables and good fruits is.  There is a lot of truth to the saying that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”  Add to your apple green vegetables, whole grains, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and fruits.  These soften your stools and avoid causing and irritating hemorrhoids.

2.  Eating fresh fruits contributes fiber and nutrients called bioflavonoids.  Bioflavonoids fight inflammation while strengthening the walls of blood vessels.  Hemorrhoids are bulges in blood vessels – a balloon like effect.  Lemon and oranges are the two most important citrus fruits that supply flavonoids.

3.  Witch hazel, which acts as an astringent (shrinks tissue) can be poured on toilet paper and in addition to helping you clean will also help decrease the bleeding, swelling, and pain caused by the hemorrhoids.  This can be done two or three times per day.

So there are three quick things to help prevent and cure hemorrhoids.  If you are currently suffering hemorrhoids a sitz bath is also useful.
