There’s plenty of scientific evidence to suggest that there’s no correlation between different foods and the onset of hemorrhoids.
Nevertheless, it has been observed within various medical studies, that certain food types do increase the negative impact of hemorrhoids, should you already have the condition.
Let’s consider 5 foods to avoid with hemorrhoids.
1. Dairy Produce
Dairy produce should be one of the first foods to eliminate from your diet if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. Perhaps it does seem like a rather unlikely culprit, but the truth is that dairy products represent not only a potential allergy-forming ingredient, but also can be particularly harmful to the intestines, due to its’ acid-forming capabilities. Arguably the worst offender among the variety of dairy products is that of ice cream, in-part due to the milk element, but also because of the amount of additives that are very frequently used in its’ make-up.
2. Refined Foods
In many cases, a diet that is rich in refined carbohydrates can bring about a worsening of the hemorrhoid condition. As such, the following foods should either be entirely avoided, or consumed in distinctly small quantities:
- Ready-Made Meals
- White Bread
- Lunch Meats
- General Processed Foods
Nuts should be avoided if you suffer from hemorrhoids. Like dairy products and the other foods listed in this article, nuts can bring about increased discomfort and pain for hemorrhoid sufferers.
Staying away from the consumption of caffeine perhaps poses the most difficulty for hemorrhoid sufferers. However, caffeine, which includes most types of coffee and tea in general, can encourage hemorrhoids to become more painful.
Nevertheless, if you can’t bear the thought of the non-consumption of coffee and/ or tea, then there are plenty of options that are caffeine-free.
Although alcohol is a very pleasurable drink for many, not to mention the potential health benefits that can actually be gained from the consumption of alcohol, it still poses a painful risk to those who suffer with hemorrhoids. Alcohol can cause irritation within the intestinal tract, which of course then results in the aggravation of the symptoms associated with hemorrhoids. Again however, if you must, be sure to consume alcohol in small quantities.
