Why You have Hemorrhoids
Many people, somewhere around 39% of the population, will suffer from hemorrhoids at some point in their lifetime. Most of these people will have no idea why they got them. For a few, they may clear up and go away on their own, but for those who seem to have chronic problems it's important to know how you got them in the first place.
See If Any of These Potential Causes Problem to You.
Hemorrhoid Cause 1: You sit down too much. Do you have a job where you might be necessary to sit in an office chair all day? Or worse yet, does a medical problem have you trapped on the couch all day? Sitting for more than an hour at a time on a regular basis combined with other factors like pregnancy or constipation can lead to the development of hemorrhoids.
Solution: Get Off Your Bottom
Sounds easy, but for some people it is hard to do. Try to stand and move around at least once a hour even if it means working standing up at your desk for a couple of minutes. For those who are confined, even the act of taking this lightly, if you're unable to stand up, can relieve some of the pressure off of your bottom.
Hemorrhoid Cause 2: You Eat Too Much Junk Food
If you have a busy life like me you're probably eating out of the selling machines at work a lot or maybe you are just a junk food enthusiast. A lack of raw natural food in your diet can cause a hard stool, which may lead to constipation and eventually, hemorrhoids.
Solution: Throw a few preparing salads or vegetables into your diet each week, and if you're a snacker, try keeping some fiber rich snack bars in your desk or at home in order to munch on. Even a small energy to eat more whole foods could make a difference.
