What Best Food To Eat If you Have Hemorrhoids (Piles)

You are often advised  “Stay hydrated and eat sufficient fiber-rich food” if you have piles (hemorrhoids).

There are 2 types of Fibers

a) Soluble Fiber: This is found in oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium. Soluble fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like material. It makes your stool soft, well-formed, and easy to pass.

b) Insoluble Fiber: This type of fiber is found in nuts, beans, vegetables such as cauliflower, green beans and potatoes, as well as whole-wheat flour and wheat bran (the hard outer layers of cereal grain). It doesn’t dissolve. It helps to keep things moving through and out of your system and to balance the chemistry in your intestines.

A fiber-rich diet is beneficial for you because it may help:

    • Reduce your risk for chronic diseases such as heart problems, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cancer and stroke, as well as from death from some other cause
    • Feed and promote proliferation of gut bacteria
    • Normalize bowel movement, as fiber softens feces and forms loose stools
    • Decrease levels of cholesterol
    • Help in controlling levels of blood sugar
    • In attaining healthy weight

Research has demonstrated also that a fiber-rich diet leads to significant reductions to your cholesterol and blood pressure degree levels, improves sensitivity of insulin and also lowers inflammation. If you’re constipated, adding food items high in fiber can help promote the movement of material along your digestion and increase stool bulk.

Preferably, you need to consume at least 25 to 50 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories consumed per day, particularly if these amounts include the following foods:

  • Flax, hemp and chia seeds (these are good sources which might help radically increase your intake of soluble fiber)
  • Vegetables such as carrots, celery, broccoli, sprouts, green beans and cauliflower
  • Root vegetables and tubers such as onions, sweet potatoes and jicama (Yambean)
  • Beans such as black beans, lima beans and beans
  • Fruits like bananas and apples. Pears along with other sorts of berry might also be added to your diet, but make sure to eat them in moderation because they contain high levels of fructose which might be devastating to your wellbeing.
