In brief: High fiber diet

Avoid straining with bowel movements.
Eat foods high in fiber or take a supplement. Drink 7 or more glasses of water a day. If you have severe swelling/pain, you can try using table sugar on a gauze pad over the hemorrhoid. The sugar absorbs fluid and helps decrease the swelling over time. Sitz baths (warm soapy water, sit in tub or basin) a few times a day and after bowel movements.

In brief: Flavonoids, herbs &

There are many natural treatments for hemorrhoids.
Fiber helps to prevent them. Some experts believe modern toilets contribute & squatting to pass stool is preventive! bioflavonoids like diosmin can be very helpful as can herbs like horse chestnut, butcher's broom & witch hazel-all these are found in a product called veinfactors by futurebioitcs (other companies have similar products).See comment:.

A simple home remedy that can help inflamed hemorrhoids is applying iodine topically- it will sting but can quickly reduce the swelling.
