(Shooting) pain or itching around your anus or a burning feeling after a bowel movement or after wiping yourself. All are indications of hemorrhoids. A nasty malady that commonly occurs, especially once you have turned 50. Women appear to be more likely to suffer from them.
How do you get them?
In the last part of your intestines, just before the opening at the end, is tissue that can swell up and which assists in keeping your anus shut, to help prevent poop or gas from escaping. If too much pressure is placed on this tissue, it can become irritated and infected. This causes pain. It’s possible that it becomes so swollen that it sags. In this case, a hemorrhoid can sag until it’s outside of the anus. You have a piece of skin hanging out of your anus that is usually purple. When you have a bowel movement, that piece of skin can break open and begin to bleed. You see this as bright red blood on your poop or toilet paper. No reason to panic, but it’s a good idea to check with your primary care doctor.
What causes pressure on your intestines?
1. Constipation: If you have trouble going to the toilet and are constipated, you sit longer on the toilet and press harder without realizing it. By pressing hard, you put too much pressure on your intestines and there’s a chance you’ll develop hemorrhoids.
2. Sitting too much: If you’ve got work that involves sitting a lot (in an office or as a truck driver), then, without realizing it, too much pressure can be put on the anus, causing hemorrhoids. Moreover, people who don’t move enough often have hard, dry bowel movements causing them to push extra hard to get the poop out.
3. Overweight: Being overweight can put pressure on the anus.
4. Pregnancy and giving birth: There is more pressure on the pelvis during pregnancy, which can cause hemorrhoids. During birth, there is intense pressure and the pressure on the anus is a great cause of hemorrhoids.

How do you get rid of them?
The general advice is to drink a lot of water so you don’t become constipated. Take a look at your diet and adjust your eating habits, if necessary. Make sure you get enough exercise. If this doesn’t take care of the hemorrhoids, you will need a doctor’s help. He/she can do a lot about iteasily, so don’t just keep walking around with them! Hemorrhoids can cause anemia and therefore, a general feeling of fatigue.
The MIR-Method and hemorrhoids
I was overjoyed to receive reports during the past few years from people that their hemorrhoids had disappeared by doing the MIR-Method. Francis wrote, “I’ve been doing it for 2 months now and my fungal nails are changing and since 2001 I’ve had numb fingers after having an epidural for a hip operation, and tried everything including alternative medicine (homeopathy), but this has disappeared now. Now my hemorrhoids have also disappeared.“

I’m not sure how it exactly works either, but I can explain a few effects for you. If the tissues in the intestines become infected, but the infection doesn’t proceed properly and become taken care of by your body, the problem and the resulting hemorrhoids will continue to exist. By doing the MIR-Method, you work on strengthening your immune system, through all 9 steps, and your body can deal with the infections and return the tissues to normal proportions.
Step 5: ‘Supplement all shortages’ enables your body to look for the foods that will supplement the shortages. Maybe it needs more roughage, maybe more moisture through, for example, fruit or soup. They prevent constipation and supplement the nutritional shortages, making your intestinal wall more vigorous and stronger. This can cause hemorrhoids to disappear by restoring the intestinal wall.
Step 7: ‘Fulfill basic needs’ causes changes in your dietary habits. If you can fulfill your basic need for “Comfort”, it’s possible you won’t reach for alcohol or all kinds of candy. Instead, your sense of self-worth grows and you make the effort to eat more healthily. It prevents constipation and results in healthier intestines.
Generally, people don’t like to talk about hemorrhoids. I’m glad that the MIR-Method is a possible solution for these people. Try it and let me know if it also works for you.
