1. Take home cooked, fresh light food. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 2. Increasing the fibre in your diet is known to be as effective as injections for preventing further problems 3. Increasing your fluid intake which can help prevent further problems with haemorrhoids 4. Avoiding straining and constipation which is the most useful thing patients can do to prevent the problem coming back. If the fibre content of your diet is not sufficient to keep your stools soft, then a fibre supplement can help. 5. Maintain active life style 6. Curd is good for u. 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods Homeopathy has very encouraging results. Consult online with details

Yes anxiety and ibs are very much related. We haven't concluded whether anxiety is the cause of IBS or IBS causes the anxiety in those pt. But one thing is for sure anxiety worsen infact makes it difficult to cure of this disease. All you need to do is control your anxiety. Do meditation. And relax a bit. Take food in every 4 hrs. With this you need proper homeopathic treatment for cure. If you can continued with homoeopathic treatment you will definitely get some better result. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate. One more thing you need to boost up your confidence level.
