Hemorrhoids are also called piles. This is when a vein becomes swollen or enlarged in the anal canal. This may be caused due to irregular diet, constipation, pregnancy, genetics and many other factors. Hemorrhoids are not abnormal and every person suffers from this irritating disease at least once during their life span.
You can prevent hemorrhoids from occurring by making some simple lifestyle changes. Some of these changes are:
Eating lots of fiber enriched foods
Avoid food that can irritate your bowels like spicy food, coffee, etc.
Exercising as little as 20 minutes every day, and this will help you have a regular bowel movement.
