How To Prevent Hemorrhoids

HemorrhoidsHaemorrhoids are the veins in the wall of the rectum and anus that have become twisted, swollen and inflamed. They are  formed internally or externally and the resulting lumps can even cause bleeding. Keeping stools soft is the best way to prevent Hemorrhoids, so they pass easily.

Haemorrhoids can be prevented by changing the diet and lifestyle easily; including lots of fibre and drinking plenty of water is a good way of preventing this trouble. Moreover, regular exercise and healthy bowel habits can also help to keep haemorrhoids away. There are a few ways to prevent the painful symptoms of Hemorrhoids which are discussed here.

Various Ways To Prevent Hemorrhoids

High Fibre Diet

Your daily diet should include generous servings of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans. Being rich in fibre, they help softening and increasing the bulk of the stool which in turn helps in avoiding the strain that leads to Hemorrhoids.

High Fibre Diet

Over the counter fibre supplements are also effective in improving the overall symptoms and bleeding. Start with a small dose and increase the dosage over a month or so.

Fresh oranges and water

Fresh oranges contain flavonoids. These are powerful phytochemicals which promote healthy veins. Consider adding coconut oil to your daily diet. In addition, drinking six to eight glasses of water and other liquids (not alcohol) is recommended.

Drink Water

Drink enough water so that your urine is a light yellow in colour. Water creates softer stool that moves more easily through your colon and avoids the need for straining.

Daily Activities

Ensure that you get some form of exercise every day. Even moderate activities for at least 2 ½ hours a week is beneficial. Avoid prolonged sitting or standing and try taking short walks frequently. Do not lift heavy objects often. If there is a need to do so, make sure that you exhale while lifting the object and that you are not holding your breath.

Sleeping on your side when you are pregnant exerts pressure on the blood vessels in your pelvis region, which prevents hemorrhoids from becoming bigger.

High Quality Probiotic

Taking a high-quality probiotic balances the bacteria in the gut. This not only helps in relieving constipation, but also ensures your overall well being. Take steps to control your emotional stress. Tools such as meridian tapping techniques are helpful in alleviating emotional stressors which are one of the reasons that lead to constipation. They are also proven to reduce and eliminate the painful symptoms of Hemorrhoids.

High Quality Probiotic

It is always recommended that you strive to prevent a condition like Hemorrhoids, so that treatment is not necessary. Like most of the health conditions, Hemorrhoids are your body’s way of telling you to pay more attention to your diet, water consumption, physical exercise, emotional stress, or other lifestyle issues.

Healthy Bowel Habits

Each day, schedule a time for a bowel movement. A daily routine helps greatly. When having a bowel movement, take your time and do not strain. Relax and let things happen naturally.

Make sure that you go to the bathroom as soon as you have the urge and get off the toilet as soon as you are done.If you delay in passing a bowel movement and the urge goes away, your stool may become dry and be harder to pass. Reading while sitting on the toilet is not a healthy habit.
