In brief: Diet and exercise

Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, is one of the most effective lifestyle changes you can make for your hemorrhoids.
A high-fiber diet, together with plenty of fluids, softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. Along with a healthy diet, exercise can help ease bowel movements.
