I liked the tips offered in this piece. I’ve never heard of using a low stool to put my feet on, and I intend to try it. I do know about taking mineral oil, but didn’t know I could mix it with applesauce. Great idea! Also wheat dextrin versus psyllium products. Various effective laxitive pills and drinks give me severe headaches — maybe this one won’t. Prunes work but are harqd to regulate and often make me violently ill with horrible gas and diarrhea. I can go for a week with stopped up digestion and it is very concerning. The hemorrhoids are wzeird — mucusy with an icky fluid that seems to come out. Sorry to be so graphic!

Does anyone know what this fluid is? I’ve been wondering for weeks!

Thanks for reading my comment.

I was looking eagerly for the tips to get rid of the hemorrhoids. I’m suffering with the hemorrhoids and having an embarrassing experience with it. Though I’m not old, the previous eating habits and drinking has led to the hemorrhoids. I’ve been trying good enough to get rid from this worst condition. Do my heavy working hours affect the hemorrhoids growth? From past I had avoided fast and processed food and I relied on the fiber diet instead. Even though I couldn’t escape from this situation, please help!!!
