I eat my veggies regular, have a good fiber intake , physically fit and get enough water daily. Young in mid 30's, but have been battling this hemorrhoid problem for ever, even since high school. Ive gotten better with my diet as ive aged, but it seems that at the beginning of a bowel movement i have to push good to get things moving then it goes. Sometimes thick like mud when it takes a little effort....then sometimes it will just come easy. I often start so as im standing up just before i sit down to help ease it out first because it seems i put my stomach in a bind trying to go sitting down. I know it sounds wierd...but its how i do it....plus im not one to sit and take all day to go. Im in and out. I use shea butter wipes from walmart instead of regular toilet paper....only time i may use paper is if out in public and i have to go immediately ......but i try to keep a bottle of water atleast to wet paper away from home if i get caught without my wipes with me....cheap paper really irritates my anus skin....for some days.......and i use preparation cream max strength but.....its just getting old and makes me myserable.........any body relate???

That area of my body works so much better since I take more than the so called recommended doses of magnesium. Concentrating on warmer/room temp water vs cold water is good info. Also reduce heavy meats going into the body. My experiences.

I know how silly this may sound, but it works. Try squatting over the toilet seat. This position can really help move things along. And as Jamin said, magnesium also helps as a supplement. So does lots and lots of water. Exercise is also very helpful. I know you mentioned you are physically fit, and that's important. You're a young man/woman, take advantage of that and keep in shape.
*Eat organic as much as you can afford. Very important.


He's not aiming right, but you get the picture

*edited to add: I have a book written by a Dr. on the intestinal tract. He mentions that if the poo comes out thin, that the hemoroids are blocking the normal flow of things, and can lead to colon cancer. A simnple trip to the Dr. can remove these very easily.

I take two teaspoons of psyllium husk fiber daily to help things keep moving. And drink approximately 100 ounces of water each day.

Also, google pruritius ani - it might not even be your hemorrhoids.

My take on it: limit caffeine and alcohol intake, consume organic/whole foods along with remaining very fit

Assume you've done the usual things e.g using stool softeners, Preparation H, high fiber diet and been to see a Proctologist to rule out other, more serious issues?

Yes...I also give fine ground psyllium husk to my elderly animals....really keeps them regular.
Can't go wrong with psyllium husk OP....give it a try...you might be surprised at how well it works to clean you out.

See a specialist.Part of me thinks a gastrointestinal doc, but I also wonder if a dermatologist might have some good ideas.

Get a "Squatty Potty"

Fit your toilet with a "bidet" capacity. ONe of my friends did this and she LOVES it - ordered it over the internet.

Take Cod Liver Oil pills every day. You can buy them at Walmart.


You won't have any problems after that, and they are actually GOOD for you in other ways.
