Relief from Haemorrhoids and Anal Fissures.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have some knowledge about this and the remedies are

1.Avoid Constipation.

2. Increase fiber intake.Fiber intakes such as Prunes,Apple,Pears,Carrots,Figs are very very helpful.Those suffering from diabetes and having haemorroids and fissures should avoid dried figs instead you can have fresh figs.Pears should also be avoided by diabetics as it may increase the  blood sugar levels try fennel seeds instead.

Figs and prunes are perfect please eat this regularly and should feel the difference very quickly.

3.Medication- Annoheal (Diltiazem 2%) is also very helpful when used two times a day or after each bowel movement.The key is to use it for a month or 2 as the muscles round the back passage may take a while to heal even if the fissure and haemorroids disappear.

Summary : Avoid constipation,eat fresh figs,prunes and apples(pears if you are not diabetic) drink two litres of water (minimum) a day.

Please dont hesitate to see a doctor.

    Ok, heres my problem and maybe someone can help. I was told to increase my fiber so I did. I must have increased too much or wasnt drinking enough water so my nutritionist (im trying to lose weight) said to increase water. I have done that but still get blocked up and bloated. I am trying to reach a happy medium. Do the stool softeners really work?

      First after all the research everyone reacts differently and your have to find something specific for your body. I've tried it all however stool softeners did not work for me so I added miralax with stool softener and ended up with very loose stools and vomiting. So in the beggining I was on a strict oatmeal in the am little to no dairy +almond milk) activia papaya almond milk shake and a very light lunch. When I discovered miralax it was a miracle for me not a frocitive laxative however water intake should be greatly increased since it takes a lot of the water in your body to your stools. Good luck hope all gets well

      I found that increasing my fibre intake made things worse because I suddenly had to go to the bathroom twice daily which then irritated the fissure. I drink a minimum of 2 litres of water a day. 

      I think there is so much trial and error involved.
