Hemorrhoids or the swelling of anal veins is not just an affliction of a modern lifestyle.
Historians would attest that even during the ancient times, people also had hemorrhoids.
However, in this modern age, more and more people are having it mainly because of lazy lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits.
We are now more accustomed to eating highly processed food; our habits have become more sedentary and desk bound by the nature of our jobs.
But doing the exact opposite can help you avoid getting hemorrhoids.
Symptoms of this dreadful condition include bleeding and pain - sometimes a lot! Your worries about bleeding can mean two things: the seriousness of your hemorrhoids and the embarrassment you get from stained clothes.
As much as possible, you would not want to get into that situation where even walking around can make you feel uncomfortable and humiliated by people seeing blood stains on around your butt.
Eating green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit can be a good start.
Get rid of those fatty, processed, unhealthy foods and stay organic as much as possible.
Drink plenty of water too, as it helps the fiber from fruits and vegetables in helping you eliminate your poos more easily.
Try to exercise everyday.
This too needs discipline, but once you get the hang of it, exercising shouldn't be a problem at all.
So if you ask yourself, when to worry about bleeding hemorrhoids, it's simple.
If it has gotten out of control, then start worrying about it.
Seek treatment if the bleeding won't stop even if you have kept healthy habits.
