Dr. Asaf Presente
Internal Medicine - Pulmonary Critical Care
In brief: Fiber/water
Constipation and hemorrhoids can be treated by changing a diet to include lots of fiber (fruits and vegetables are best for this - pills/powders not as much) and at the same time markedly increasing water intake (not soda, not coffee).
The goal is to have soft mushy stools a couple of times a day.
