How to treat hemorrhiods?

Hemorrhoids don't usually go away completely once you have them, unless you undergo one of the procedures below. They can get improved, however, so that living with them is tolerable. Both conventional and alternative practitioners consider diet the best way for treating hemorrhoids. A diet rich in high-fiber foods and low in refined and junk foods is essential. Probably half of all hemorrhoid sufferers find relief with dietary changes alone. Most hemorrhoid treatments aim to minimize pain and itching. Warm (but not hot) sitz baths are the most time-honored and oft-suggested therapy: Sit in about three inches of warm water for 10 minutes, few times a day, especially after a bowel movement. If you are pregnant, discuss any treatment, including dietary changes, with your doctor before proceeding.
