Hemorrhoids

Uses

Principal Proposed Natural Treatments

Other Proposed Natural Treatments

Hemorrhoids are swollen, inflamed veins in the rectum that can ache and bleed. They are very common and are usually caused by constipation , a low-fiber diet, a sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy , or liver cirrhosis . The most important interventions for hemorrhoids aim at reversing their causes. Adopting a high-fiber diet, sitting down less, getting plenty of exercise, and maintaining regular bowel habits can make a significant difference.Medical treatment consists mainly of stool softeners and moist heat. In more severe cases, surgical procedures may be used. Contrary to popular belief, it does not appear that consumption of foods spiced with hot chili peppers causes any discomfort or harm to people with hemorrhoids; a double-blind study found no difference in symptoms following consumption of hot peppers or placebo. 11
