Natural Remedy What experts say about them
(Preferably water)

No, water won't cure hemorrhoids, but if you don't get enough of this and your body is in a state of dehydration, your stool will be more solid.

Also, eating a high fiber diet (great for preventing constipation) without drinking enough fluids could cause the stool to be hard. Avoid caffeine containing fluids (coffee or cola) when possible as they can be dehydrating.
Dose: Drink 8 cups of fluids daily.
Fiber / Psyllium
