Cure Hemorrhoids Without Surgery?

By Holly Hayden

Over 40% of the adult population will be afflicted by this problem at some time in their lives. Hemorrhoids or piles are an inflammation of the veins around the lower rectum.

Blood on your toilet paper? Itching in your anus area? Pain during constipation? All of these are likely signs that you may have hemorrhoids and it's no laughing matter " because although common, they can be annoying and embarrassing.

In the more severe stages, they can fall out like a lump outside your bottom. So what are some common mistakes that people make which contribute to developing this common condition? Even if you have these already, avoiding the following 3 mistakes can start relieving the problem gradually.

Mistake #1: Eating too much processed food

Many people have a hard time with this, but it is a well known fact that processed foods and sugars lead to harder stools and digestive troubles. This then leads to constipation and other issues that cause hemorrhoids. In the case where you are suffering and wanting to cure hemorrhoids it is key to lower your intake of processed sugars and foods.

Mistake #2: Sedentary lifestyle

A lot of long term sitting can create additional pressure on the bottom area and this invokes the perfect environment for a hemorrhoid to occur if combined with a sharp force such as constipation or pregnancy (in women). The solution is to make sure you do not sit for over 1 hour at a time, and remember to do stretches that promote healthy blood flow.

Mistake #3: Intake of processed medication and creams

These have the same potential problems as those processed foods. Many of the supplements contain ingredients that have side effects of their own. And they don't even attack the cause of the problem.

Many of these cremes have no benefit and only waste time that could prevent the hemorrhoid from getting worse over time by productively addressing the root cause of the problem.

Avoiding these three mistakes will help by not causing the hemorrhoids to become worse. More importantly, it is necessary to understand how our modern sedentary office work lifestyle and convenient processed diets contribute to the problem. - 30540
