Want to learn more about how to treat haemorrhoids? Well, first you should know exactly what they are. Haemorrhoids are swollen veins in your anus and rectum that can get inflamed and cause symptoms like itching, burning, and bleeding (especially during a bowel movement). They can be internal or external. However, you can start healing from the inside out with a high-fibre diet, which can reduce the bleeding and pain from haemorrhoids. Doctors from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of North Carolina suggest filling your plate with fibre-rich foods for haemorrhoid relief. Think along the lines of fruits and vegetables, brown rice, whole grains, and nuts. (Fibre is also good for your gut microbiome.) Drinking plenty of water can also prevent constipation.
