Most Common Causes of Hemorrhoids

The causes of hemorrhoids may vary from one individual to
another. There's no single factor that can cause them to appear. In this
article, let's learn about the most common cause of hemorrhoids
according to experts.
1. Constipation
Hard stools passing
through your system can put too much pressure on the veins and causes
them to swell. When this happens, hemorrhoids appear. The best thing to
do to avoid this is by altering your diet. Make sure that you cut back
on foods that may cause constipation such as meat, pizza, potatoes, and
cheeses. Meanwhile, increase your intake of fiber as it will enhance
digestion and help relieve constipation. When you go to the toilet, just

feet (front part). After which, bend forward and rest your elbows to
your knees. Doing this will allow you to past stools a lot easier. The
less effort you exert, the less likely the odds are of you developing

hemorrhoids. This is due to the increased pressure exerted on the veins
in the pelvic region. Piles also appear after delivery due to the
pressure put on the lower region when the baby is being pushed out.
These are the common causes of hemorrhoids among moms-to-be.
5. Weight Problems
overweight can be disadvantageous in many ways and one of them is
making you prone to having piles. The excess weight you carry when you
sit, stand, or walk can put extra strain on the lower region of your
body and weaken the veins. These become the primary causes of
hemorrhoids. Make sure to watch your weight and keep it on a healthy

On Hemorrhoids (Brigham Young University - Medical Works of Moses Maimonides)

Moshe ben Maimon, better known as Moses Maimonides, is among the
most celebrated rabbis in the history of Judaism, and the author of
works in Arabic on many subjects, including influential philosophical
and medical treatises. On Hemorrhoids is one of these texts,
written for a young man of a noble family who was seeking a regimen to
help him treat his hemorrhoids. While not the first to write on this
subject, Maimonides’s work bears his personal stamp with his emphasis on
dietetics, which plays a primary role in so many of his other medical
writings. He warns against hastily treating the painful condition with
drastic measures such as bleeding and surgery, instead encouraging more
cautious treatments like a change in diet. He also advises his patient
that if more extreme actions need to be taken, then Maimonides himself
must be present.
Unlike other modern editions of this important work, this edition of On Hemorrhoids takes
into account all the extant Arabic and Judeo-Arabic manuscripts. The
book includes critical editions of medieval Hebrew and Latin
translations and a glossary of medical terms.
