Home remedies of hemorrhoids

 

 

Hemorrhoids can be treated using natural therapies:

Hemorrhoids are uncomfortable, painful, and difficult to talk about. They are, nevertheless, fairly common: around half of persons over the age of 50 have experienced them. They are, however, simple to treat and control.  

Hemorrhoids can be bothersome and unsightly, but they often decrease on their own with basic self-help treatment and over-the-counter medicines. 

  

Type of hemorrhoids:

Swollen veins near the anus are known as hemorrhoids. Rectal pain, itching, bleeding, and occasionally bulging veins outside the anus are all common symptoms. 

Internal and external hemorrhoids are the two types of hemorrhoids. Either type can exist on its own, or both can exist at the same time. 

Internal hemorrhoids are a type of internal hemorrhoids. These develop within the anal canal and are usually painless. They may, however, produce sporadic bleeding with bowel movements and occasionally leak mucous. Internal hemorrhoids can also protrude from the anus, appearing as tiny grapelike lumps.  

Hemorrhoids on the outside. Swelling, protrusions, and discomfort can occur when they originate close outside the anal orifice.  

  

What causes hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids can appear for no apparent reason, but they are frequently linked to persistent constipation or diarrhea, bowel straining, and prolonged toilet use. Following these three simple steps can help you lower your risk: 

Make sure you're getting enough fiber in your diet (guidelines suggest 14 grams for every 1,000 calories)  

Keep yourself hydrated (drink six to eight glasses of water daily)  

Exercise on a regular basis (aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intense activity per week).  

 

Is it possible to heal hemorrhoids using natural remedies?  

First, the good news, neither form of hemorrhoid is harmful, and serious complications that necessitate medical attention are uncommon. Trying a few natural and self-care therapies can typically alleviate symptoms.  

  

Make yourself a sitz bath: Fill a tub with three to four inches of warm (not hot) water and sit in it with your knees bent for 10 to 15 minutes to reduce itching and irritation. Using a towel, gently pat yourself dry, but do not rub the region. 

  

Supplement your diet with fiber supplements: These aid in the reduction of hemorrhoid bleeding and inflammation by drawing water into your stool and making it easier to pass. A fiber supplement containing psyllium husks, such as Metamucil or a generic version, is a suitable option. Try a supplement with wheat dextrin or methylcellulose if psyllium produces gas or bloating (Citrucel).  

 

Assist in the reduction of discomfort: Apply over-the-counter medications to reduce itching and shrink inflammatory tissue. Tucks with hazel pads or soothing creams with lidocaine, hydrocortisone, or phenylephrine are good options (Preparation H) You can also take precautions to avoid flare-ups.  

  

Don't wait any longer: Delaying bowel motions can cause stool to back up, increasing pressure and straining, aggravating your hemorrhoids. 

  

Sit in a comfortable position: Avoid sitting on the toilet for long amounts of time; this causes hemorrhoids to push out and swell. Elevating your feet using a step stool as you sit will help speed things up. This shifts the position of your rectum, making it simpler to pass stools. Using a cushion beneath you when sitting in a chair or on a hard surface can also help to reduce edema.  

 

Keep it tidy: Clean your anal area with a witch hazel pad, a calming baby wipe, or a cotton cloth soaked in warm water after each bowel movement. Apply petroleum jelly or aloe vera gel if you have any irritation thereafter.
