Hemorrhoids are classified as internal or external depending on where they are located in the anus or rectum. Basically, these uncomfortable bulges are the result of compromised veins. They can occur secondary to a primary liver or digestive disease. They are highly aggravated by both constipation and diarrhea, and are common in alcoholism. Someone with a genetic predisposition to varicose veins may be more likely to also suffer from hemorrhoids. Anything that increases abdominal pressure such as; pregnancy, heavy lifting, coughing, sneezing, and vomiting will potentially cause or worsen a case of hemorrhoids.

All types of berries are high in anthocyanins and flavonoids which research has shown supports the strength of the vascular wall. Many Naturopathic doctors recommend 1/2-1 cup of berries per day to their patients with varicose veins or hemorrhoids. These would include strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc.
