Most experts agree that nutrition with hemorrhoid plays a key role in the treatment of the disease. Those patients who adhere to a strict diet and do not have bad habits, are cured much faster and feel much better. Why is a diet withhemorrhoids so important and which products need to be completely eliminated from the diet?
The Basics of Proper Nutrition
Most patients do not suspect that nutrition somehow affects the formation of hemorrhoids. There are products whose regular use can provoke blood flow to the organs located in the pelvic area. As a result of a strong blood flow, the work of vessels, which eventually stretch out, lose its tonus and elasticity. Stretched vessels begin to tighten, forming hemorrhoids.
Products that present a high risk of developing hemorrhoids include various spices and spices, canned food, pickles, and smoked products. Also, violations of the blood circulation provoke excessive consumption of alcohol. Moreover, the higher the degree of alcohol, the more it affects the walls of the vessels.
Proper nutrition for hemorrhoids includes:
- Receiving food 5-6 times a day. In this case, the portions should be small;
- Use of sufficient liquid in the amount of 1.5-2 liters per day;
- Regular use of fiber, sour-milk products and vegetable oil. They remove slags and other harmful substances, improve the intestinal microflora, soften fecal masses;
- Basic diet - vegetable food;
- Complete elimination of alcohol, spicy, salty and smoked food.
These are the basic rules that need to be fully rehabilitated. In addition, nutrition in the treatment of hemorrhoids involves the use of buckwheat, oatmeal, lamb and other cereals, the refusal to receive white bread, the inclusion in the diet of bran, beet, cauliflower, cucumbers, carrots, marrows, juices, fruit berries. The food should be rich in fiber and vitamins.
How to help intestine?
There is another cause of hemorrhoids associated with what we eat - constipation. As a rule, they arise as a result of improper diet and diet, but they can be caused by low sedentary work.
When fecal masses become very dense, people start to tighten and they injure the walls of the intestine. Over time, this leads to the development of the disease.
Recommendations to get rid of constipation:
Nutrition in the exacerbation of the disease
If during the remission of hemorrhoids, the patient can afford small favors in the form of roasted and smoked food, then during the exacerbation of the disease it is necessary to completely abandon the harmful products. The diet should consist exclusively of vegetables, fruits and light cereals. Once a week, it is recommended to do the day of loading, using only water.
Nutrition when exacerbated by hemorrhoids should not include turnips, radishes, grapes and bread. Moreover, about such necessary, at first glance, drinks like coffee and tea, too, will have to forget for a while. In the list of prohibited products, when acute hemorrhoids are also included: cabbage, legumes, pasta, rice, carbonated drinks, eggs, cheese, mushrooms, fat, chocolate, some berries and fruits( quince, gherkin, cranberries, pear, pomegranate, blueberry).
Internal hemorrhoids, characterized by the presence of cracks and bleeding, require an even harder diet. Eating with hemorrhoids with bleeding should be easy and do not contain foods that can damage the walls of the intestine. In addition, it is desirable to eat a whole cluster of garlic every day. It is not digested in the stomach, so it can wound on the surface of the intestine.
During the exacerbation of the disease, it is necessary to give up food that can cause bloating. Also, eating with hemorrhoids and cracks should not include alcohol, since it prevents the healing of morning on the intestinal mucosa. Even after surgery or full recovery, it is recommended to stick to the diet, but in a more gentle way.
If the disease is in the worst form, the only solution will be surgical intervention.
Nutrition after the operation of hemorrhoids has its own nuances and is based on three principles:
- Easy assimilation. You need to choose such products that will not lead to flatulence, diarrhea or constipation;
- Balance. Food should include as much as possible minerals and vitamins;
- Thin. Not allowed to starve or vice versa to eat tightly. Eating after hemorrhoids should be frequent( every 2 hours), but small portions.
After a surgical operation, there is another problem: you need to hold the stomach for a period until the illness is healed. You can achieve this only by consuming products that are not spoiled by slag. For example, doctors recommend eating a broth on low-fat meat, porridge from rice on the water, an omelet from proteins, boiled meat, white crackers. You also need to drink a lot of liquid, and at night take herbal infusions.
Recently, instead of diet, food mixes that contain all the necessary nutrients are used. Sometimes doctors prescribe a complex of vitamins and minerals that are injected intravenously. To adhere to special nutrition after removal of hemorrhoids is necessary until the doctor does not say to switch to the usual food.
