In brief: FIBER
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 of water. Furthermore, it helps to "take the library out of the bathroom": get in, get out!

In brief: Fiber/bath/donut
Agree with the high fiber diet 20-25 grams.
Should also consider stool softeners, sitz baths 3-4 times per day and over the counter meds like preparation h. Use an air inflated donut for sitting.
