I have a friend who is a truck driver. This is a profession where hemorrhoids can be a problem. For one thing, my friend spends so much time on the road in his truck that he gets very little exercise. Instead he is sitting all day. He also stops at restaurants along the road and he snacks in his truck. Basically, he eats tons of food that is not good for him.
Well, several months ago his condition got so bad he had to take some time off work. There are endless jokes out there about hemorrhoids, but this condition can be very serious and having hemorrhoids can limit what a person can do physically to a large extent.
I bought him a book on natural hemorrhoid treatment, and he is exercising daily and eating more fruits and vegetables and laying off the foods that might cause constipation.
