Colon Problems and Hemorrhoids

Is there a correlation between colon problems and hemorrhoids?

There are several colon conditions that can contribute to the onset of hemorrhoids:


•    Constipation
•    Diarrhea
•    IBS
•    Diverticulitis
•    Spastic Colon
•    Gastritis
•    Tapeworms and Parasites
•    Crohn’s Disease
•    Candida
•    Colitis
•    Giardia Lamlia
•    Clostridium Difficile









For someone who suffers with Hemorrhoids, dealing with one or more of the conditions mentioned here may lend itself to some of the worst kind of hemorrhoids be it internal, external, thrombosed and even bleeding hemorrhoids.  Trying to solve a hemorrhoid issue without properly addressing the underlying cause is like putting air in a tire without removing the nail.  If you are suffering with hemorrhoids, then treating the underlying colon problems is a critical first step.  

Deciding on the right course of treatment for colon problems may represent a significant challenge.  Crohn’s Disease, IBS, Giardia Lamlia, and certainly Clostridium Difficile are among the most difficult conditions to treat, and associated Diarrhea may only exacerbate one’s hemorrhoids.  Often a multi-pronged approach for treatment may be required just to keep symptoms at bay.  Change in diet, supplementation, and working with a doctor or natural practitioner is the right tact for dealing with the most serious of colon problems.  

At least two of the diseases mentioned have a strong possibility of recurring; Clostridium Difficile, and Giardia are types of a parasitic condition that may never be fully eradicated.  Extreme or chronic Diarrhea may be so severe as to bring on Hemorrhoids with severe bleeding.  Anyone in this category should absolutely be under a doctor’s care, especially since C. Diff. (Clostridium Difficile) may be life-threatening.
