How do I treat my haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids are more a misery than a life threatening condition.
However, bleeding on a daily basis may cause anaemia in some people.
Infection can also accompany bleeding and protruded haemorrhoids.

Most people will tolerate or self medicate with over the counter creams, ointments and suppositories for years and will only report to the doctor when a complication arises or if the symptoms become unbearable when over the counter preparations fail to work.

The root cause of Haemorrhoids lies in the bowel habit of the sufferer.

Pressures and forces created in the Anorectal area by repeated straining and prolonged sitting on the toilet in an effort to empty the bowel lead to trauma in the anal cushions. The anal cushions enlarge and get inflamed and may bleed.


Haemorrhoids may be healed or prevented from recurring by eliminating the two main factors involved.


When a bowel habit that is easy to initiate and quick to complete without the need for excessive or any straining is established, haemorrhoids heal and do not recur.


1. Problems with finishing the defecation process:
bowel due to the creation of a SOFT and PASTY stool can cause one to STRAIN in order to complete a bowel movement.
To complete the bowel movement and achieve complete emptying of the bowel one will stay on the toilet seat for a longer time and PUSH and STRAIN until all the waste has been eliminated.
Try to make a stool of the proper consistency by including the right type of foods in the diet.
A FIRM, SOLID, BULKY, SOFT and SLIPPERY stool is the perfectly formed stool and will exit the rectum and anal canal as soon as the correct posture for evacuation is adopted.The Squat posture)


2. The need to STRAIN must be reduced or eliminated if haemorrhoids are to heal or be prevented from recurring.
Stool of the proper consistency helps finish complete emptying and reduces the amount of time spent in the toilet.

Adoption of the Squat posture reduces obstruction for the passage of stool at the Anorectal junction by relaxing the pelvic floor muscles.
Removal of the tension on the sling type puborectalis muscle which keeps the path between the rectum and anal canal closed creates an open path for stool to pass.
Relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles enhances the conscious relaxation the external anal sphincter.


The compression of the thighs on the left and right side of the abdomen creates gentle pressures within the sigmoid colon and Cecum area of the large intestines. The open path created; together with the pressures created by the squat posture eliminate the need to STRAIN and let GRAVITY and momentum finish the job.


Adopting the Squat posture for evacuation of the bowel is known to eliminate the need to strain.  Reducing or eliminating the need to strain at stool will remove the formation of increased internal pressures which contribute towards the formation of haemorrhoids. This helps not only to prevent the formation of haemorrhoid but also heal existing haemorrhoids by eliminating the need to strain.

The squat posture prevents the repetitive aggravation and injury due to excessive straining that is required in the sitting posture.
A natural healing process is allowed to occur and further damage prevented when the continual insult to tissues is removed.


How to heal and prevent Bowel disorders

Diet is not about what you should NOT eat, it’s about what you should include in the diet that matters.
As long as your diet includes the correct balance of plant foods containing soluble fibre, insoluble fibre and resistant starch your colon will produce the perfectly formed stool. The important next step is to evacuate this stool without straining so that the body does not suffer from the pressures created each time the bowel is emptied.

In order to heal and prevent bowel disorders you need to make lifestyle changes that last the rest of your life time.

1. Include more fluids and plant food containing soluble fibre, insoluble fibre and resistant starch in the diet so that the perfectly formed stool will be made in the colon and beneficial bacteria will flourish and eliminate disease causing bacteria and fungi.

2. Evacuate the perfectly formed stool by adopting the squat posture to eliminate the need to strain during bowel movements.

It is not possible or safe to squat on the modern raised toilet seat installed in all western homes and it is impossible to squat for any length of time if you have not done this from childhood onwards. This makes the use of any raised platforms impossible to adapt to.

The SquattLooStool is designed to allow you to adopt the squat posture while seated comfortably on your raised toilet seat.
The single best and easiest lifestyle change you will ever make, leading to a healthier body.
