Hemorrhoids are what happens when veins in the anal area begin to protrude do to an abnormality. When this happens, it is not life threatening, but it can be a sign of a much bigger problem: an unhealthy lifestyle.
Hemorrhoid symptoms include pain during a bowel movement, blood in the feces, mucus in the anus, itching, and even pain when sitting. These symptoms can become very disruptive to a respectable lifestyle, and when these symptoms begin to really flare, they can even put life itself on hold.

Hemorrhoids are entirely curable in natural ways without any medical procedure or surgery.
