If you have swollen on inflamed veins in your anus or lower rectum then you may be suffering from hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids can be caused by straining during bowel movements, pregnancy, obesity, chronic diarrhea or constipation, and anal intercourse.

Other symptoms of hemorrhoids include; bleeding during bowel movements, pain, discomfort, itching or irritation in your anal region, leakage of feces etc.

The constant blood loss from hemorrhoids can lead to anemia which would result in fatigue or weakness. Hemorrhoids can also cause extreme pain and gangrene if the blood supply to the hemorrhoid is cut off

To prevent hemorrhoids eat plenty of high fibre foods and drink plenty of fluids. Don’t strain during movements and make sure you go to the bathroom the second the urge hits.  Exercise and avoid long periods of sitting or standing to help  prevent hemorrhoids.

    A proctologist told me a long time ago that using a good quality of toilet paper was also very important.

    More and more people are switching to natural cures for hemorrhoid treatment as they treat the causes to make sure the symptoms are gone for good. Products like H Miracle and Venapro are having great success.

    If you do the research, you can put together a viable hemorrhoid treatment system with natural products you can buy at your local grocery store.

    There are several natural remedies for hemorrhoids but please see your doctor first. I know it can be embarrassing but most of us wait too long and the problem grows.

    I had no idea that letting your hemorrhoids go too long could create gangrene. I definitely believe that doing something upon the first signs of hemorrhoids can make all the difference.
