In order to hopefully treat and prevent recurrence of hemorrhoids we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors. We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow hemorrhoids to develop?"
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind hemorrhoids consists of three steps:
|Inadequate Fiber Intake||15%||Unlikely|
|Calc Fluor Need||0%||Ruled out|
|Copper Deficiency||0%||Ruled out|
|Liver Congestion||0%||Ruled out|
Have you suffered from Hemorrhoids?
Possible responses:→ Never had one / don't know
→ Probably had one/minor episode(s) now resolved
→ Major episode(s) now resolved
→ Current minor problem
→ Current major problem
A copper deficiency has been associated with weakening of connective tissue that can be a contributing factor for the development of hemorrhoids.
The hemorrhoidal plexuses drain through veins without valves, so factors that increase the pressure inside these veins – such as straining while on the toilet – can lead to hemorrhoids.
If the liver is too congested, blood may not flow easily back to the liver through the hemorrhoidal veins and this might cause swelling of a weakened vein.
