*Tap each lifestyle habit, and you will see the explanation.
You have no applicable lifestyle habits, and you seem to lead a life with less burden on the anal area.
- I do not eat breakfast.
- People are most likely to have bowel movements in the morning due to the reflex action of eating breakfast. Skipping breakfast may disturb the rhythm of bowel movements and cause constipation. Constipation puts a heavy burden on your anal area, which increases the risk of having hemorrhoids. Let’s have breakfast.
- I do not eat many vegetables.
- Dietary fibers in vegetables are not digested or absorbed in the body. They contain water to make stool soft, and they also help in increasing the amount of stool. If you do not eat vegetables, the fiber intake of your body will be less, which makes stools hard and causes the burden on the anal area. Let’s eat enough vegetables.
- I am on a diet.
- If you are on a diet and reduce food intake, the volume of stools does not increase, and you will hardly have normal bowel movements. It will cause constipation. Constipation is one of the major causes of hemorrhoids. Let’s avoid an extreme diet.
- My meal time is irregular.
- In order to maintain a healthy life, the life rhythms such as meals and sleep are very important. Irregular meal time disturbs the rhythm of stomach and intestines, which causes constipation and diarrhea. Constipation and diarrhea are major causes of hemorrhoids. So, be careful.
- I drink a lot of alcohol.
- Alcohol is said to make stools soft, but too much alcohol comsumption causes the opposite effect. Particularly, people who have diarrhea, on the day after drinking, should refrain from alcohol consumption. Diarrhea puts a heavy burden on the anal area and can cause hemorrhoids.
- I often eat spicy food.
- Many people have experienced sore sensation during bowel movements on the following day after eating spicy food. Pungent ingredients contained in spices such as red peppers do not decompose and come out directly in the stool. Therefore, they irritate the anal area and cause pain and bleeding.
- I tend to accumulate stress.
- When you feel stressed, your stomach and intestines do not work well and your life rhythm gets disturbed. Many people experience constipation or diarrhea due to disturbed autonomic nervous system caused by insufficient sleep. Let’s try to relax.
- I lead an irregular lifestyle.
- Irregular lifestyle, with persistent lack of sleep, may distrub the rhythm of your diet and bowel movements, which may cause constipation. If you fall ill and your physical strength decreases, you will be less resistant to bacteria, you may be prone to anal fistula. It is important to maintain a regular lifestyle.
- I tend to be constipated.
- Constipation is one of the major causes of hemorrhoids. If you apply an excessive burden to your anal area in an attempt to excrete hard stool, the venous plexus in the cushion area of the anal area becomes congested and prones to internal hemorrhoids (piles). Also, if hard stool hurts the anus, anal fissure occurs.
- I often have diarrhea.
- Diarrhea is one of the major causes of hemorrhoids along with constipation. When you have diarrhea, watery stools pass through the anus many times and that puts a large burden on the anal area. When the anus is cut by such stimuli, anal fissure occurs. When venous plexus in the cushion area of the anus becomes congested, internal hemorrhoids (piles) occur. If the watery stool enters into the anal crypt and causes bacterial infection, anal fistula develops.
- I tend to hold an urge to have a bowel movement.
- Constipation occurs when you hold an urge to have a bowel movement. Constipation is a major burden on your anal area. However, it has the opposite effect to stay in the toilet at a fixed time without an urge to have a bowel movement. Go to the toilet when you have an urge to have a bowel movement.
- I tend to spend a long time on the toilet.
- Staying in the toilet for a long time for passing stool may cause anal area's congestion due to pressure on the anus. Fix a time of 3 to 5 minutes in the toilet and then come out.
- I prefer taking a shower.
- Let’s soak in the bath. It not only keeps the anus clean but also improves systemic circulation and promotes metabolism. Soaking in the bath at a lower temperature for a certain time is the key. Soaking the bottom half of your body in the warm bath resolves congestion of the venous plexus at the cushion part of the anal area that causes hemorrhoids (piles).
- I tend to keep the same posture.
- If blood circulation in the lower body is impaired due to keeping the same posture, the anal area becomes congested and prone to hemorrhoids. If you keep the same posture for a certain time, change it occasionally, or have a light exercise to improve the blood flow in the anal area.
- I do less exercise recently.
- If you do not move your body, the blood flow of the anal area can get worse, and you will be more likely to have hemorrhoids. Exercise activates metabolism and improves systemic blood circulation. It also helps resolve constipation. Moderate exercise such as walking and jogging are necessary for your anal area.
