4. French Maritime Pine Bark Extract

The extract from the bark of this tree is a little- known but  excellent source of catechins, flavonoids, and proanthocyanidins, all of which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. Studies have shown that human subjects who took French maritime pine bark extract for a one week period had improvements in their symptoms. If you tend to get hemorrhoids frequently, you might want to consider taking this extract once a week each month to help prevent the hemorrhoids from returning.

 

5. Lemon Juice

This juice will give you relief from your hemorrhoids by strengthening the walls of the blood vessels and capillaries so that hemorrhoids don’t form in the first place.  The great thing about lemon juice is that you can use it both internally and externally to fight hemorrhoids. First, you can squeeze the juice from  half an organic lemon into a cup of warm water or milk and drink this twice a day to help strengthen the blood vessels from the inside. Then saturate a cotton ball in freshly squeezed lemon juice, and apply it directly to the affected area. You might feel a bit of stinging for a few seconds, but pain relief will follow shortly.

 

6. Eat More Whole Grains

If you get hemorrhoids more frequently than you think you should, try eating more whole grains. Whole grains contain healthy fiber, which help relive hemorrhoid symptoms as well as helping to prevent hemorrhoids in the future. The nutrients in whole grains can help clear out the digestive system, preventing constipation. A diet high in fiber can increase in bulk, which will reduce the need to strain when pooping. The best whole grains are barley, oats, brown rise, buckwheat, millet, and quinoa.
