Hemorrhoids can occur as a result of having to strain too hard when going to the bathroom. Not eating enough fiber in your diet can make your bowel movements harder to pass out of your body. External hemorrhoids can make it painful to sit down for extended periods of time. They can even be itchy. There are different natural treatments that can help get rid of this problem.
Ruscus Aculeatus Herb
This natural herb is more commonly known as Butcher’s Broom. The herb is available as a dietary supplement and oil extract. You can take the tablet supplements several times a day. You can apply the oil extract directly to the infected areas as well. Butcher’s Broom works to help reduce swelling of the hemorrhoids by tightening the blood vessels and improving circulation.
The calendula plant is used to create oils, creams and gels that help to reduce swelling and reduce itchiness associated with hemorrhoids. You can use several drops of the oil and mix it with an unscented cream to apply to the infected area. Or you may obtain it already mixed in a cream or gel instead.
This herb can help prevent hemorrhoids. When consumed on a regular basis, dandelion root helps to remove toxins from the body and aid digestion. It is available as a tablet supplement or comes as an herbal tea.
All of these herbs are available from your local health food store. Some pharmacies may also carry some of the supplements in the vitamin section.
High Fiber Foods
Eating plenty of fiber helps the body digest food easier and makes bowel movements easier. While high fiber foods cannot treat existing hemorrhoids, they can work to help prevent reoccurrences. There are many fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, rice and beans that are naturally high in fiber. Apples, grapefruit, peaches, pears, various berries, squash, cabbage, peas, carrots, cauliflower, whole grain breads, rice, pastas, kidney beans and lima beans are examples of foods that are high in fiber. You should try to eat several servings of these foods daily to help keep your bowel movements regular and prevent hemorrhoids.
