diet and hemorrhoids

warning TMI!!!

I constipate but I never strain. I drink sufficient water and on a "healthy" Indian diet. I got hemorrhoids this Jan while lifting weights. It goes when I take some medication and comes back randomly. I do find overeating (which co-incidentally constitutes pretty much of gluten while I try to reduce gluten to minimum in my normal diet) also contribute to hemms....

Since hemorrhoids are inflammation of veins, is Paleo going to help me with it? Never heard of any hemorrhoid getting reduced due to Paleo...

In the article How to help with hemorrhoids described steps you need to take if you find yourself hemorrhoids, a good addition to the material.

Also, if anything my stools are a lot firmer & heavier now, so logically should be straining my digestive system more, but it seems to have helped

Sorry i should've mentioned maybe its increased fat that helped it heal. More meat & fat are the only things i've changed in my diet recently. I've had them on & off for years so really suprised they healed. I've been eating lots of non-starchy veggies/fat/fish/eggs & meat

would definitely want to look into that part. In my culture, eating too much meat (atleast as much as Paleo ppl eat) is associated with tons of diseases including constipation and hemorrhoids, conventional wisdom though....

I had constant anal fissures for a couple years & since i started eating more meat mine have healed, i want to say totally but i don't wanna jinx it!

I already ate fairly low carb/fish/eggs, the only thing ive done different is add more meat (beef/pork/duck) and since not one spec of blood on the toilet paper no matter how hard i wipe! TMI!

In my experience definitely something gut healing about meat

Eating paleo certainly helped mine. They also tend to flair up when I eat junk. They might not go away all the way, but they probably will get better. This totally TMI, oh well :)

There is some thought that hemorrhoids may be somewhat hereditary. There seems to be a familial tendency, although it probably plays a small role. We actually all have hemorrhoids. What causes problems is when they swell, causing symptoms (most commonly pain, itching and bright red blood from trauma). Things you can do to prevent a flare-up include: avoid constipation, weight loss (if you're obese), avoid prolonged sitting - whether at work or on the toilet, wash that area regularly. Fiber supplements and eating a diet high in fiber are very helpful because they keep you regular and keep the stool softer, reducing the trauma that may cause a hemorrhoid to get worse. Stool softeners are also helpful during a flare-up because it allows that area to heal.

I started Paleo and crossfit 3 months ago and got hemmoroids about a month in after a heavy squat workout. I went to a health food store and explained my situation to the 100 year old lady working there. She recommended Biorutin. I started taking it and the hemmoroids went away in a bout 3 weeks. Note: I did not stop lifting weights, and the hemmoroids did not come back.
