Hemorrhoids, which are also commonly called piles, occur when the cluster of veins in the anus and rectum becomes inflamed and swollen, making their walls thin. These veins can sometimes become excessively dilated that they bulge out and cause discomfort and bleeding. This tends to happen with exertion around the rectal area, such as when you try to poop. While you can’t always see hemorrhoids, they resemble red or discolored lumps when they do become visible.

What Are The Kinds Of Hemorrhoids?

There are two major categories of hemorrhoids based on their location. These are:

  • Internal hemorrhoids
  • External hemorrhoids

Internal Hemorrhoids

These are located in the rectum, not readily visible, and are found too deep to be easily seen on inspection. They are also not usually felt either with little or no discomfort experienced. However, that’s where the (relatively) news starts to take a turn in another direction. When internal hemorrhoids are exposed to extra strain, such as when you try to defecate, they can cause bleeding (usually painless) into the stool. They may also protrude out of the anal opening, becoming prolapsed hemorrhoids. When they prolapse, they become painful and irritated.

External Hemorrhoids

It is a more inconvenient variety. External hemorrhoids are found on the anal surface. When visible, they are discolored lumps or bumps on the anal surface. Even though they carry similar symptoms as internal hemorrhoids, they are more likely to cause pain and discomfort, sometimes even with routine activities such as sitting down. In addition, it is more likely to become painful and swollen on defecation. When blood pools and forms a clot in the hemorrhoid, it becomes a very discomforting experience involving severe pain, swelling, and inflammation. The thrombosed hemorrhoid is typically seen as a hard lump on the anal surface.

How Can You Prevent Hemorrhoids?

While hemorrhoids can be triggered by some factors, including age, excessive straining for bowel movements, obesity, low fiber diet, regular heavy lifting, etc., there are some natural steps you can take to prevent them.

High Fiber Diet

Excessive straining is a factor that predisposes to the development of hemorrhoids. This kind of diet, in turn, can be made necessary by regular constipation, which requires excessive straining to defecate. A high fiber diet reduces constipation and makes defecation easier. It reduces the need to strain (which can lead to hemorrhoids)

Drink Plenty Of Water

This helps to keep your stool soft and easier to pass. Also, it reduces the need to strain during defecation.

Take Regular Bowel Movements

Not taking regular bowel movements can cause your stools to harden and become difficult to pass. This can cause you to strain during defecation (which may cause hemorrhoids to develop).

Exercise Regularly

This helps prevent constipation and subsequent straining during defecation.

Do Not Use The Loo For Too Long

If you sit for too long periods in the loo, it can cause the pressure in the rectal and anal veins to increase, causing them to become dilated and possibly chronically develop into hemorrhoids.


Hemorrhoids are dilation of the rectal and anal veins that develop due to some causes. This article has discussed some of the risk factors that can lead to hemorrhoids, also steps you can take to prevent the development of hemorrhoids.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
