Twelve fruits that can help prevent hemorrhoids
As you know, constipation is one of the risk factors for hemorrhoids and other anorectal diseases. There are 12 fruits that eating them on a daily basis helps you prevent constipation. But there is a golden point about the time of eating them; eat 4 fruits for breakfast and have the remaining 8 ones during the day. If you are overweight, it is better to choose low-calorie fruits, such as cucumber, to prevent weight gain. It should be noted that obesity is another risk factor for hemorrhoid or piles.
Use a toilet step to prevent colonic diseases and hemorrhoids
Scientists recommend using a step beside the toilet. This step changes the colon status to prevent intestinal diseases and hemorrhoids. To this end, place a small step or stool in front of the toilet, sit down on the toilet seat, and put your feet on the step or stool. You are now in a squatting position similar to your position in a squat toilet (Iranian-style toilet). This position leads to easy and complete defecation.
When you sit down on a toilet with feet on a step, the knees are above the abdomen and the pelvis forms an angle of 35°. This position facilitates the defecation process.
