Hemorrhoid juice

Hemorrhoid juice

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are veins in the anus and lower rectum that become inflamed. According to the Mayo Clinic, “hemorrhoids may result from straining during bowel movements or from the increased pressure on these veins during pregnancy, among other causes.”

Hemorrhoids may occur in the rectum, or under the skin around the anus. By the age of 50, around half of adults may experience hemorrhoid symptoms.

Factors that might cause hemorrhoids:

1. Straining during bowel movements

2. Sitting for long periods of time on the toilet

3. Chronic diarrhea or constipation

4. Obesity

5. Pregnancy

6. Anal intercourse

7. Low-fiber diet

Note: Hemorrhoids are more likely as you get older because the tissues that support the veins in your rectum and anus can weaken and stretch with aging.

Eat more of the following foods:

1. Strawberries:

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, which is an important vitamin for healing. It helps reduce the inflammation associated with hemorrhoids. The Linus Pauling Institute states that vitamin C may also help with the contraction and expansion of blood vessels, which may help reduce the risk of hemorrhoids.

2. Red grapes:

Red grapes, like strawberries are a good source of vitamin C. They also provide a good amount of vitamin B6, which helps facilitate digestions and relieve the constipation that can cause hemorrhoids.

3. Oranges:

Oranges are well known as one of the best sources for vitamin C.

Hemorrhoid juice:

2 cups strawberries

1 cup red grapes

1 orange, with skin peeled

You can drink this juice on a regular basis once a day

Enjoy!

As always: Consult your health practitioner before changing or including anything new to your diet.
