Hemorrhoid treatment:
In general people will intake more fibers, more liquids and constant rest.  Doctors prescribe general laxatives for relieving pain while passing stool and ointments, creams and gels.

Barley water: Take a handful of barley rinse and soak in 2-3 glasses of water for whole night. Filter the water early in the morning from barley grains, add honey and lemon juice to the filtered water for good taste. Drink this water on empty stomach. Barley contains 43% of fiber and essential minerals,vitamins(molybdenum-60%, manganese-60%, selenium-42%, copper-34%, vitamin B1-33%,chromium-23%, phosphorus-23%, magnesium-20.3%, vitamin B3-18%).

Butter milk:Consuming 2 glasses of buttermilk will correct the enzymes which act on digestive system and improve liver functionality. Buttermilk will gradually decrease size of piles and gives immediate relief from pain by suppressing excessive heat. Adding a pinch of ginger and few mint leaves to the buttermilk considered as highly beneficial.

Dry figs: Dry figs naturally eliminates constipation and helps in easy bowel movement without pain. At least intake of 4 dried figs are necessary to eliminate hemorrhoids. Soak two dried figs for whole night eat them early in the morning and two dried figs after last meal or before going to bed.

Hemorrhoids can hinder everyone's daily activities. Even sitting is a hard task to do that is why sitting in a soft surface is a must that can also help to add comfort to hemorrhoid as it brings uncomfortable sensations with its own symptoms. In my experience, to add comfort to your hemorrhoid, try using relievers like creams or ointments. I suggest Clearmed Hemorrhoid Treatment that helps me to relieve the symptoms and cured my hemorrhoid in a short period of time.

Hemorrhoid can be avoided and cured by just applying a healthy lifestyle. Eating foods that are rich in fiber, having regular exercise, and avoiding to be dehydrated are one the healthy lifestyles for hemorrhoid. But if you are suffering hemorrhoid right now, better use it with over-the-counter remedies and I suggest Heel BHI Hemorrhoid Treatment Review for a faster relief and healing.
