Basic hemroid information - Incidence, types, causes and symptoms of hemroids.
Hemroids / Hemorrhoids are an extremely common health problem these days, affecting up to three quarters of the population at some point in life, creating greater demands by hemroid sufferers for more natural alternative medicines for treating hemroids.
Fortunately, hemroids are usually a mild problem requiring only home care to treat and cure. Natural treatment for hemroids is usually the recommended course of action by physicians, as more invasive procedures are usually not necessary and, as with any medical procedure, carry their own risks.

Understanding the basis for the Natural Hemroids Treatment
Types, causes and symptoms of Hemroids
There are two basic categories of hemroids - internal and external hemroids.
Internal hemroids start above the transition line between outside skin and interior mucus membrane called the dentate line. They can protrude past the dentate line to show outside the body, which is classified as a prolapsed hemroid, but the attachment to the rest of the body will always be fully inside the anal canal in the case of internal hemroids.
External hemroids originate below the dentate line outside the anal canal.
Both kinds of hemroids are caused by vein enlargement in and around the anal canal, which is triggered by long periods of abdominal pressure.

The two main causes of both types of hemroids
Pregnancy and constipation are the two leading causes / producers of such pressure, and taking the pressure off is the first step to treating and curing hemroids. Pregnancy induced hemroids will usually disappear after childbirth, but constipation must be addressed directly in order for any other hemroid treatment to be effective - the first big basic for the natural hemroids treatment.
Symptoms of hemroids
Symptoms of hemroids can include itching, burning or pain in the case of external hemroids and a feeling of fullness or the constant feeling of needing to defecate indicating internal hemroids.
Both varieties of hemroids may bleed showing bright red blood on toilet paper, stool, or in the toilet bowl. Any rectal bleeding, no matter how slight, should always be looked at by a doctor, as the causes of rectal bleeding also include anal polyps, fissures, fistulas, warts, or ulcers. Bleeding can also be an early indication of colorectal cancer, as well as of typhoid fever. None of these conditions can be successfully dealt with at home, they must be addressed by a doctor at the earliest possible time.
Hemroid symptoms should abate, if not go away, if one follows the natural hemroids treatment options provided below.
The Basic Natural Hemroids Treatment involves 4 critical components:
1.. The first natural hemroids treatment should always be fiber.
Fiber is necessary for the functioning of the body as a whole and will help with hemroids whether caused by pregnancy, constipation, or any other reason.
The body requires 96 grams of fiber per day to remain healthy and balanced, and it is best to get this fiber through the consumption of fresh fruits, whole grains, and beans. Introducing these foods slowly and one at a time can help the intestinal tract adjust slowly and help prevent excessive gas.
Please note that this natural hemroids treatment may be medically recommended at the 96 grams of fiber per day, but realistically, your diet is more likely 11 grams a day at the moment. For most people, a high fibre diet is 30 grams fiber daily. I believe that if you increase your diet to around the 30 gram mark, that you will find this a good level that I think should work as a natural hemroids treatment. Going over the fiber tables of foods, it's almost impossible to have anything remotely resembling a normal diet when attempting to consume foods to obtain 96 grams of fiber daily. So try 30 grams as the natural treatment for hemroids and work your way up from there if you have to.
If you are unable to get enough fiber from a balanced diet, or if you are temporarily needing more to deal with a particular problem, powdered psyllium husks or powdered flax seed are a readily available natural fiber alternative and are great as a natural hemroids treatment. The usual dosage method is to drink is an eight ounce glass of water mixed with one teaspoon of powdered husks, followed immediately with another eight ounce glass of clear water.
2.. Drinking water is a natural hemroids treatment also
and involves the drinking of at least sixty-four ounces of water daily, or eight glasses of eight ounces apiece. This helps ensure that the body has sufficient moisture to keep digestion moving and prevent constipation. If constipation is an ongoing problem, avoid caffeine in soft drinks, coffee, and tea, as caffeine acts as a diuretic, pulling water from the body.
Water is vital as part of a natural hemroids treatment and it's importance should not be minimized.
3.. Another natural hemroids treatment is a regimen of light exercise.
Walking briskly for twenty minutes at a time, two to three times a week, is a good way to improve overall tone and health. Light exercise also helps intestinal peristalsis, which is also referred to as intestinal movement, to jumpstart if it was not functioning up to optimal levels for some reason.
For modern man, this is likely going to be a downfall in your natural hemroids treatment plan. Chances are, you will stop and start - it's important, but the other three critical components of our natural hemroids treatment may get the job done on their own. Be aware though, that long term health issues may result from inadequate exercise, so at least try and give it a go.
4.. Bowel training is another good natural hemroids treatment.
Setting a schedule for bowel movements by sitting on the toilet at a certain time of day can train your intestinal tract to evacuate regularly, which can help greatly in reducing constipation and the attendant discomforts.
When trying this, do not strain and do not sit forever if nothing happens, just try again tomorrow.
Many consider a 5 minute interval on the toilet to be appropriate in this natural hemroids treatment
Also, never resist the bowel movement urge when it comes up; go immediately and don't strain.
