Eating the right kind of food and following good eating habits will speed up your healing of your hemorrhoids. If you have a diet that is hard to digest and moves slowly through your colon, then, expect to have constipation which will encourage formation of hemorrhoids or prevent the their healing.
Here are some foods that will help give you relief from hemorrhoids
Use the following foods to help reduce hemorrhoid bleeding:
* Dark green leafy vegetables
* Blackstrap molasses
* Flax seeds – are high in omega-3 oils, which reduce inflammation and pain. They are also high in fiber.
* Lima and butter beans are high in iron, which help to build more blood. If you have bleeding hemorrhoids, adding lima beans to your diet would be a good choice. *Sweet potatoes provide fiber, B vitamins, iron, potassium and many other vitamins and minerals. This is a good body building food.
If after trying different hemorrhoid remedies listed here for up to two week and your hemorrhoids do not have shrunk or go away, you might consider seeing a doctor. You need to find out if your hemorrhoids exist because of a more serious medical condition.
See your doctor right away if you have a lot of anal bleeding, a lot of blood in your stools, heavy pain, or fecal incontinence.
Ginger, Garlic, and Onion
Add these three herbs – ginger, garlic, onions – to your diet. Each one of these helps to break down fibrin. As I mentioned before excess fibrin creates inflammation and blood congestion by trying to repair arteries and veins.
Here are the foods that contain iron to help you build up your blood or to keep iron in reserve, if you ever need it.
* Chicken liver, steamed crab
* Beef liver
* Dried apricots
* Blackstrap molasses
* Sunflower seeds
* Cashews, almonds, sesame seeds
* Baked potatoes
* Cooked Swiss chard
* Lima beans,
* Cooked broccoli
At every meal, use olive oil, flax seed oil, and apple cider vinegar in your salad. In your soups or other food dishes where it’s appropriate, use olive and flax seed oil.
At the end of each meal take your capsule of fish oil. Fish oil is probably one of the most important oils to use daily. Read other articles I have written on fish oil..
Eat plenty of salads with raw vegetable. Vegetables and fruits that you heated destroy their natural enzymes and turn calcium into an inorganic form. You body can’t process this inorganic form of calcium.
This excess inorganic calcium moves into body areas that are sluggish and precipitates in these areas causing inflammation and disease. One area that can migrate to is the rectum where it activates the formation of hemorrhoids.
So eat plenty of raw vegetable sprinkled with apple cider vinegar, flaxseed oil, and olive oil.
There you have it. Plenty of food remedies that can give you temporary relief, reduce bleeding, reduce swelling, eliminate itching, and cure your hemorrhoids.
