Ok !!! I've been doing raw for awhile now. Now I go to the bathroom at least 2 or more times per day. And now I'm sore. Should I cut back on so much veggies & Fruit. Suzy:o

If I only went twice a day, I'd consider myself constipated!:D
I've read that pretty much anytime you eat anything of substance, you should have a BM...but most don't...(so your body is actually doing what it's meant to...)
...a little zinc (diaper rash cream) will ease any redness/soreness & zinc helps heal...
...also, watch the spices! They can really ADD to the problem!:eek:
& make sure to drink enough water, if they're painful cuz they're not soft...as you up fiber, you need to increase your water intake!

Maybe too much fruit? Veg shouldn't be an issue.

And try to avoid rubbing too hard when you are cleaning up. Wet the toilet paper and dab or use a wet wipe. I was being too rough with myself for a while and developed a problem

Thanks all - I went to the doctor and she said I have internal hemmoroids. I now have to go to a specialist. I've done everything you say. Mostly eat veggies and little fruit. I use wipes after the job is done. I'm never constipated (never, ever) always soft. Maybe this comes with age (55) who knows~ :confused: thanks all. Suzy

Two to three times a day sounds like your regular to me. Maybe just give it some time for your body to get used to it and in the meanwhile try some of the things that everyone is mentioning to clear it up. Good Luck!!!

Try a juice fast and give your body a break.. it'll probably clear up those hemorrhoids pronto!

Thanks - I think you're right - I'm going to try a juice fast. But only after my Raw Food Class on Saturday. Thanks for your help. Suzy
