Hemroids are caused by the swelling of the blood vessels in the anal canal. They form into knots of tissues full of tiny blood vessels and are extremely painful. If the hemroids occur inside the anal canal then they are known as internal hemroids. Often these internal hemroids are symptom free but if too much pressure is exerted when passing stool then these knots get bruised and end up bleeding.
Hemroids also occur outside the opening of the anus and are known as external hemroids. These hemroids always cause unbearable itching and pain. The main symptoms are rectal bleeding, pain when passing stool and itching.
People who suffer from constipation or are obese or have anal sex are most likely to have hemroids. This condition can be easily managed at home by just adopting a few simple measures.

Prunes besides being delicious to eat are also full of dietary fibre. The fibre provides bulk to the waste matter and helps it to be easily eliminated through the rectum. It regulates the bowel movement and calms the inflamed hemroids. Prunes are also rich in vital nutrients that keep the blood vessels strong and intact.
