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.
