The best way to prevent hemorrhoids is to take steps to avoid hard stools and constipation. This involves making sure you drink enough water throughout your day. It also requires increasing the amount of high fiber foods like whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables. Likewise, staying physically active will also help keep your blood and bowels moving. When the time comes for bowel movement, don't delay it and don't sit too long or push too hard when you're on the toilet. Also taking stool softeners or laxatives can help treat constipation and hard stools. However, it may make it difficult for your body to regulate how and when you may need to make a bowel movement if you take them too often. Always consult your doctor before taking laxatives as a treatment for hemorrhoids.
