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.
[DFR::453428245-6374-ss|align_right_1]Over half a million people seek medical help for hemorrhoids every year in the United States, and at least ten percent undergo surgical procedures to treat their hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids seems to get worse for those between the ages of 45 and 65 but that doesn’t mean that the younger ones are excused from this ailment. Hemorrhoids tend to develop during pregnancy due to the extra weight of the fetus but this is usually temporary.
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.
[DFR::461608114-6374-ss|align_left_1]One of the natural home remedies to relieve the symptoms is to take sitz baths. According to one of my friends who is a Wilmington NC real estate agent, you just need to sit in the bath with a few inches of warm water fifteen minutes two to three times a day. Instead of wiping the area with toilet paper, moistened cotton pads with witch hazel, or cotton balls soaked in witch hazel instead. Keep the area dry. If the steps above don’t help relieve the symptoms, you can try Heal Hemorrhoids which is used to treat both external hemorrhoids and internal hemorrhoids. It is proven to shrink hemorrhoidal tissue and completely eliminate the condition. This specially formulated topical hemorrhoids treatment (piles) are 100% natural, produced from the highest quality pure natural essential oils extracted from plants. The formulas are organic at the source, free from pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers.

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.
