      sorry for the late reply... juicing did heal me to the extent that I wasn't hurting. I did it for 14 days total. it's hard to do it for long term and I can feel the fissure is still there but is slowly healing. the only way I think to heal a fissure is to keep stool soft like icecream. I'm currently using miralax 1 or 2 caps until I get the soft stool and vaseline before passing stool. this seems to be working but it's a very slow healing process...

    i didn't have a problem with acidic food, but everyone is different so you could try cutting it out your diet. the worst thing for me was white flour. so i would suggest:

    -take magnesium citrate/oxide supplement daily: this is the best stool softener!

    -don't eat white flour foods or anything that is constipating for you

    -add kiwis, pears, prunes, flax seed to your diet

    -find a good balance between your fibre intake and water intake. too much fibre or too much water can cause really big stools
