Dos and Don’ts for Treating Hemorrhoids

hemorrhoids reliefThere are several things you should do and several things you should not do when treating hemorrhoids. The fact of the matter is that too many people are doing a little of both and that does not help to improve their situation. That’s why we’ve gathered together a short list of dos and don’ts for you.

DO:

Do something about it. Your hemorrhoids are not going to just go away, contrary to how you might like to think they will. While they do flare up and flare down often, that does not mean the problem will go away for good until you do something about it by treating hemorrhoids.

Do it naturally. Why give your body more work by processing man-made chemically produced substances? These substances are typically used to cover up symptoms and exasperate the problem even worse behind the scenes.

Do your homework. Don’t just pick a product because someone says it works. Someone will say anything works whether it does or doesn’t. So that should never be the basis for your choice. Instead, research what it is that causes your problem and start treating hemorrhoids accordingly.

DON’T:

Don’t use a doughnut pillow. Yes, they are marketed to relieve pain from hemorrhoids. No, they don’t work. They actually put more pressure on your anal veins thanks to the position they have you sit which means you should just stay away from them during the time of treating hemorrhoids.

Don’t strain. I know, this is a bit embarrassing to talk about or maybe even to think about but straining for a bowel movement will only exacerbate the problem. Eat more fiber. Take some bowel cleansing supplements. Do what you have to do to avoid straining as that only puts more pressure on the veins.

Don’t rule anything out until you know it doesn’t work. It’s easy to assume things won’t work because they’re ‘hoky’ or ‘strange’. When it comes to your external hemorrhoids treatment, do you really care how you get rid of them as long as they’re gone? Some people who rule things out for no good reason end up dealing with chronic hemorrhoids for the rest of their lives… don’t mix in with that fold or you’ll be in pain for the rest of your days.
