There are many unpleasant symptoms and diseases associated with constipation. Hemorrhoids is one such symptom and many doctors or practitioners say, ”it’s not a serious condition.” As a natural nutritional consultant, I say, “Hemorrhoids are a condition you need to treat, or better yet, eliminate.”
You need to listen to all symptoms you have to decide if you need to take some action to correct the cause. Sometimes just acknowledging a simple symptom is enough for a symptom and the cause to disappear. Hemorrhoids, whether simple or severe, are telling you there is something wrong somewhere and “I hope you take care of it before it gets worse”
Taking care of hemorrhoids or the hemorrhoid symptoms is the first step. Then, you want to concentrate your effort on the cause of the hemorrhoids. In this way, you can help to eliminate your hemorrhoids and prevent them from coming back.
You need to take action at the first signs of hemorrhoids. Don’t wait until your hemorrhoids get large, give you pain, start bleeding or protrude.
WHAT CAUSES HEMORRHOIDS?
The first question you should ask about hemorrhoids is what caused them. It’s always the cause of an illness that you try to eliminate. Doctors don’t always have the time to determine what the cause is so they will treat the symptom to get rid of it. The result is that your illness will come back or the symptom will come back or appear as a different symptom.
Hemorrhoids are caused by excess pressure in the rectal veins and the veins in the surrounding area.
There are many causes of hemorrhoids of which constipation is a major cause. By first using some natural hemorrhoid remedies that I will discuss in future articles, you can eliminate or diminish your hemorrhoids. Then by using some natural remedies for constipation, you can prevent hemorrhoids from coming back.
Using natural remedies for treating your hemorrhoids is the best way to deal with this condition. In their book, Natural Prescriptions, 1994, Robert M. Giller, M.D. and Kathy Matthews, gives you their opinion of drugstore medications.
“If you are suffering from hemorrhoids right now, you want immediate relief. What about all those over-the-counter remedies? Just last year the FDA clamped down on the manufacturers of these products, and some of them are being removed from the market because they’ve never been proven to be effective. Other must limit their claims. Those that claim to shrink tissues must carry a warning because people with diabetes or heart disease, for example, shouldn’t use them. In the final analysis, while you may get some temporary relief from these products, you could do as well by applying zinc oxide, petroleum jelly, or witch hazel, which are just as effective and far cheaper.”
