Hemorrhoids are a collection of veins that are located in the anal canal, their primary role is to help with stool control, when they become inflamed and irritated, we commonly call them “hemorrhoids”.
If you have hemorrhoids then you know how painful and embarrassing it can be. Though, not a serious disease, it can be extremely troublesome.
However, before starting to treat hemorrhoids this way, you need to understand why they get inflamed and what can you do about it.
According to many readings and many studies, hemorrhoids get inflamed when people “push” when they are in the bathroom, I don’t want to talk about all the scientific words and research, I will explain what I have understood: when you go to the bathroom and you “push” when defecating, this will cause high pressure on the hemorrhoids and on the long run, this is going to “hang them out”!
Now, I started asking myself why do most people and even I “push” when we are in the bathroom!? It’s because of constipation!
When we are constipated, even if we have small bowel movements, we are still going to feel that “ there is something left“, that is why we push!
So, the first important measure in order to get rid of hemorrhoids is to get rid of constipation.
The best way to get rid of constipation is to apply these two simple steps:
The first one is to consume three tablespoons of ground flaxseeds a day, trust me, this is what I do every day and no matter what I eat, I will always go to the bathroom and “get rid of” everything.
The second step is to drink at least five cups of water a day, three cups in the morning when you wake up and then you can drink as much water as you want and need. The most important step is the first three cups of water you drink in the morning.
Water is extremely important for having regular bowel movements because it’s going to hydrate your body and thus will soften your stools and make them less “sticky” in your colon.
If you do not do these two steps, you are simply not going to be able to get rid of hemorrhoids, even after using garlic!
Now, let me show you how to use garlic for getting rid of your painful and embarrassing hemorrhoids.
Apart from the various hemorrhoid products available on the market, you can also use natural remedies to get relief from painful hemorrhoidal symptoms.
Studies have shown that raw garlic for hemorrhoids can be an effective remedy.
