Transcript

Hemorrhoids are often caused by increased pressure, intra-abdominal pressure, which is transmitted down towards the a rectal region and into the veins. Most commonly, folks who suffer from hemorrhoids are constipated because they don't take insufficient amount of fluids, or because they don't have enough fiber in their diet, which would attract water into their intestines and colon and soften up their stool to make them less constipated, which would affect the pressure on the veins in the rectum.
