Care of hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are a dilation and swelling of the expandable tissue around the rectal opening. Non operative treatment is recommended, and includes a bowel regimen (fiber, stool softners, laxatices to goal of 2 soft bowel movements daily) local sauves (prep h, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) anti fungals, other) and hygiene (shower, hair dryer area daily). Surgery only if above fails.

How'd you get them?: "healing" depends on whether the original cause for hemorrhoids persists. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? Have your hemorrhoids been surgically or medically managed (& with otc or prescription drugs)? Too many variables here to know...

No true cure: Once hemorrhoids are there, they never go away (unless you have surgery, which i don't recommend). The trick is to keep them from becoming inflamed. Don't get constipated. Eat lots of fruits and veggies. Whole grains are also good - fiber is the key. Drink lots of water. Exercise is also good for keeping things moving. If they're flared up, suppositories with Hydrocortisone can be helpful.
