Medications that contain spasmodic components in their composition help to narrow the blood vessels and stop the discharge of blood from them. To such medicines carry Vikasol , Etamzilat and Dicinon.

Blood loss, and especially massive or chronic, requires additional replenishment of vitamins in the body. Thanks to vitamins, it is possible to prevent the development of anemia and improve the absorption of iron.
Vitamin C is involved in all metabolic processes. It is present in varying amounts in most products, but with heat treatment, as a rule, is destroyed. Vitamin C is necessarily present in the pharmaceutical preparations of iron, as it takes a direct part in the assimilation of this element.
Vitamin B 12 is normally produced in the intestine. However, with dysbacteriosis or disruption of the intestine, its amount drops sharply. Therefore, in order to avoid the development of anemia, bleeding should be taken additionally.
Vitamin B 6 improves metabolism, and is also responsible for the production of a specific enzyme that takes part in the processing of proteins and the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin. If this vitamin is not enough, then the process of hematopoiesis is violated.
Folic acid is involved in virtually all processes of hematopoiesis. A large amount of vitamin is present in foods that must be ingested regularly. These are salad leaves, liver, bran.

To prepare such suppositories you need to take clean water or vegetable broth and freeze. As a form, you can use rubber gloves (finger part) or small cone bags. Of course, the frozen pieces of ice should resemble ordinary suppositories in shape. Homemade suppositories should not have sharp edges, in order to avoid additional traumatization of tissues.

At the initial stage of the disease, it may be sufficient to use conservative techniques.

The most effective methods of surgical exposure to hemorrhoids are:
- Ligation of venous nodes (operation on latex ligation with superimposition of a special ring).
- Laser thrombhemorrhoidectomy (used for increased thrombosis).
- The THD method is the use of transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization (the most painless method).
