Hemorrhoid Treatment Group encouraged its readers to consider the potential benefits of engaging in the simplest of treatment for hemorrhoids, which emphasizes developing a healthy diet and healthy exercise habits. The article came on the heels of San Jose Mercury News’ December 6th article, “Water Won’t Dilute Digestive Enzymes.” The article hoped to clear confusion about consuming water alongside a meal, disputing the erroneous idea that doing so will in any way inhibit the digestive process. From this discussion of diet, Hemorrhoid Treatment Group began a comparison of medical hemorrhoid treatments, ranging from a prescribed lifestyle change, to the administration of hydrotherapy.
In the Mercury News article, Ed Blonz reassured a reader that drinking water was not, in fact, an inhibitor of the digestive process. A reader wrote in, requesting counsel regarding diet, and in what order food and drink should be consumed. While Blonz cautioned against consuming copious amounts of liquids at any time, he was quick to debunk the notion that traditional liquid consumption at dinner results in problematic digestion. In addition, he revealed water’s role in easing hunger pangs, resulting in less food consumption overall and increasing weight loss efforts.
Just as Ed Blonz suggested, diet plays a key role in the overall health and weight of individuals. For this reason, many doctors prescribe a simple change in diet and exercise routines for patients with symptoms of hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoid Treatment Group developed a comparison of medical hemorrhoid treatments: diet and exercise versus more intensive therapies. Diet and exercise, though doctor recommended and prescribed, does not require heavy doctor intervention: rather, patients are able to explore what works best for them regarding their own body and digestive processes, and are able to gradually increase their exercise habits until they reach their optimum health level. Conversely, doctor-applied therapies, such as hydrotherapy, require several trips to the doctor and may only treat hemorrhoids that are already present, rather than acting as preventative care. A combination of both hydrotherapy and a change in lifestyle may be the best medical hemorrhoid treatment option.
Ed Blonz is a physician contributing regular question and answer columns to the San Jose Mercury News. His writing centers around diet and nutrition, offering guidance for readers with diet and weight issues.
Following Ed Blonz’s article in the San Jose Mercury News discussing proper water and meal consumption, Hemorrhoid Treatment Group developed a comparison of medical hemorrhoid treatments, comparing diet and exercise changes to hydrotherapy and other doctor-performed therapies. While both have their benefits, perhaps the greatest benefit is had by a combination of both hydrotherapy and traditional prevention methods such as controlling and changing poor diet and exercise habits. Through using a combination of therapy and lifestyle changes, patients may treat current hemorrhoid symptoms and prevent future outbreaks.
