Natural Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids (Piles)

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.

A Holistic Treatment to Varicose Veins

One of the common problems we women face are those blue, purple or bluish purple veins called varicose veins or spider veins. If you suffer from the problem of varicose veins, don’t be despair as you are by no means alone. Over half the women in the Unites States on America suffer from varicose veins. I used to think that this problem only happens to women as they aged but I was wrong. Let’s look at some natural health remedies and holistic treatment to those gory spider veins…

1) Regular exercise helps in blood circulation. If you are busy working woman, choose an exercise activity that is not so time consuming such as walking.

2) Watch your weight since a heavy body can add burden to the legs that hold it upright.[DFR::veinulux-improves-the-look-of-spider-and-vari-4473|align_right_1]

3) DO NOT cross your legs when sitting. This is one habit most of us share especially when we are in front of our computer or having a meal.

4) Increase fibre intake in your diet. High-fiber foods can help prevent constipation that could also contribute to varicose veins.

5) Prop your feet on a chair or on the wall at home when you watch TV or a few minutes before you go to sleep. Leg elevation at the end of the day is highly recommended. You can also place a couple of pillows and rest your feet on them.

There are many factors that led to the cause of varicose veins – from being overweight to genetics to aging. Most factors that contribute to acquiring varicose veins are the work (especially if it includes long periods of standing up), pregnancy, stomach disorders such as constipation. Incorrect posture or improper body alignment can also cause varicose veins.

preparing for the new baby

Pregnancy is a time of anticipation for the mom to be who is filled with excitement and anxieties upon hearing that she is expecting her baby. For the new mom to be, there is much to learn in this parenting journey and technology has certainly helped to smoothen this journey.

Apart from learning about breastfeeding benefits and everything a new mom needs to learn about childcare and baby health, the new mom to be needs to eat well and healthy for herself and her baby. Then the baby shopping list starts from shopping for the most comfortable baby mattress and spacious crib for the little one. You can probably put in a wish list for a Bugaboo stroller for its mobility and cool design. Breastfeeding moms may not need to worry much about baby bottles though a sterilizer is still necessary to sterilize baby’s equipment.

Preparing for your new born is certainly exciting but don’t let all the preparation rob you of your beauty rest and healthy eating regime.
