Wait: And be sure to use stool softeners etc to avoid constipation. The hemorrhoidal tissue will still be there, but it will shrink to a smaller scarred vein with time.

Fiber, fiber and....: Fiber. Prevention is the best option. Appropriate diet is the best way to help hemorrhoidal symptoms. Often hemorrhoidal symptoms will go away when you start a high fiber diet. Try shooting for 20grams daily. A fiber one bar is one way to start! if fiber fails there are office based procedures that may be used as well as many new surgical options.

Depends: On the seveerity of the hemorrhoids and the symptoms. Proper diet and fluids wont get rid of them as they are normal venous structures that have been abused by your diet and bowel pattern. Depending on the severity, ligation, sclerosis, or surgery are the opti0ons when diet alone does not help. See a colorectal surgeon for more specigfic evaluation and advice.

What do I do to get rid of hemorrhoids naturally?

Diet and position: Although they may not totally disappear, hemorrhoids can be lessened by a diet high in fibre, good hydration, very moderate alcohol, and efficient use of the bathroom. When you assume the position for bowel function, be purposeful. Don't be distracted by reading material or digital devices. When you are done, get up and get moving. This should help. Good luck.
