New York, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Following Fox News’ December 15th article, titled “How to Deal with Pregnancy Constipation,” Hemorrhoid Treatment Group (HTG) discussed natural treatments in hemorrhoid care and prevention. Just as Fox News’ article suggests, constipation is a troublesome condition that should be quickly addressed—both for pregnant women and individuals suffering from external hemorrhoids.
In the Fox News article, Julie Revelant revealed that, during pregnancy, as much as 70% of the female population experiences stomach and digestion troubles, including severe constipation. Constipation occurs during pregnancy most often during the first trimester, during which hormones are released that incur a slower digestive process.
Over-consumption of iron can also be a contributing factor. She encouraged pregnant women to closely monitor all iron consumption, and increase the intake of both water and green vegetables to ease constipation and stomach difficulties.
HTG offers two common natural remedies for hemorrhoids:
1. Epsom salt bath soaks. For those leery of a direct application, an Epsom salt bath may be a better direction. Simply draw a bath once per day with warm water, drop in two tablespoons of Epsom salts, allow the salt to dissolve, and step in. Epsom salt serves to ease pain, and calm swollen or irritated skin. In addition, the warm water may assist in improving circulation.
2. Aloe Vera applied topically. Aloe Vera, commonly known as a sunburn treatment, functions much in the same way as witch hazel. If stored in the fridge, aloe vera gel may be used to soothe inflamed skin, tighten swollen skin, and assist in pain relief. This particular remedy is best applied using freshly-cleaned hands.
Julie Revelant is a writer for Fox News, her work spanning from children and healthcare to diet and lifestyle tips. She has worked as a regular writer for Fox News for over two years.
Hemorrhoid Treatment Group constructed a comparison of natural hemorrhoid treatment and medical hemorrhoid treatment, with natural treatment options economically favorable for mild cases of hemorrhoids. These treatments are typically applied externally, and work to both ease pain and discomfort and encourage better circulation to avoid future breakouts. This comparison was offered following a Fox News’ article’s revelation that 70% of pregnant women suffer from constipation, a condition that can easily result in the development of hemorrhoids. For individuals seeking mild hemorrhoid relief, consider using one of the two methods offered above.
