Some discussions in the “alternative health” literature refer to nutritional approaches to haemorrhoids. For example, Gerras et al. (1976, pp 948-951) summarise Wissmer’s findings and also cite other work on the benefits of bioflavonoids which are found in certain berries, citrus fruit and buckwheat. They also mention an individual’s observation that eating onions prevents bleeding after bowel movements, and suggest the use of ointment with vitamins A, D and E for the relief of pain from haemorrhoids. (Dimmer, et al., 1996)
