Lots of green salads (cooked and raw) with plenty of olive oil, plenty of water to drink and 30 minutes of walking at a rapid pace every day. That should do it. Oh yeah, avoid processed food and reduce your salt intake.

Oh yeah, and at least 100 repetitions of the mantra too! :smile:

2. sugar's your enemy (in the co-cola and in the processed foods). white flour isn't doing you any favors either.

4. unless you're in a food desert, you can get dried beans and fresh kale & collards &c in the good ol' USandA. enjoy!

Haemorrhoids are not only caused by a low fibre diet.

They are a lot to do with what we might call " pushing habits "... :cry:

Postponing a visit to the lavatory because we have stuff to do..and then pushing hard to get back to stuff quickly.

Fitting our bowel movements into our busy schedule.
