Hemorrhoids often seep fresh red blood, no matter where they are located – internally or externally.

However, in most cases, internal hemorrhoids are responsible for bleeding. They produce fresh blood in the stool.

External hemorrhoids are responsible for dripping of blood from the anus while sitting on the toilet. In most cases, if you have external bleeding, it is caused by an anal fissure.

Hemorrhoids are a swollen vein. So, if they are scraped by hard stools or stretched during bowel movements, they will most likely bleed. The blood from bleeding hemorrhoids may appear on toilet paper after wiping, or as reddish streaks in the stools.

Hemorrhoidal bleeding rarely causes anemia or severe hemorrhage. Bleeding hemorrhoids can be hereditary.

Treating bleeding hemorrhoids or bleeding from fissures is easy with the right remedy.
Here are some foods that will help in the treatment.

Alfalfa;
Dark green leafy vegetables;
Blackstrap molasses;
Flax seeds which are high in fiber;
Lima and butter beans.

You can also use apple cider vinegar to stop bleeding hemorrhoids. You should take two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water at every meal.

If after using these hemorrhoid remedies for up to 14 days your hemorrhoids do not have shrunk or go away, you could consider visiting a doctor.

You should also seek medical help if you have a lot of anal bleeding, a lot of blood in your stools or heavy pain.
