In brief: Fiber, Surgery, etc.

Hemorrhoid disease is often a byproduct of straining with defecation.
Therefore, most people with hemorrhoids will benefit from increasing their fiber intake to 25-30grams/day and drinking at least 8-10 cups water. If this is unsuccessful, internal hemorrhoids can be removed by rubber band ligation in a doctor's office. Lastly, surgery can treat those that are not responsive to the above measures.
