My mom used to tell me about the wonders of bananas and papayas and how they are good to avoid constipation. This brought me to highlight the causes of hemorrhoids (also known as piles), being a very common medical problem affecting both men and women today. I have read from the majority of hemorrhoid suffers can be treated without any type of surgery, with the help of natural home remedies of some kind.
Causes of Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are caused when the veins around the anus and lower rectum become swollen and inflamed. This inflammation can occur from many reasons but most medical experts explain that it is caused by straining when trying to have a bowel movement , constipation and too much time spent on the toilet.
Experts in home remedies and most medical professionals also suggest that you should increase the fiber in your diet to avoid constipation. Take a natural fiber supplement if needed. Increasing your fluid intake can help make a softer stool. You may want to talk to your doctor about taking an over-the-counter stool softener. Avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time.
