Let us first look at how Chinese medicine discusses the relationship between diet and anorectal disease. "Huang Di Nei Jing" says, "Therefore, when you are full, the meridians are horizontally dissected, and the intestine becomes hemorrhoids." Satisfaction generally refers to the irregular diet, which can make the anal blood vessels relax and expand into hemorrhoids. "The Complete Book of Sore Ulcers" says, "Eat fatty, pepper, and chili...five hemorrhoids under the wind and heat." It points out that eating fatty, sweet and spicy foods can get hemorrhoids. "Miracle Recipe" "The poison of alcohol heat flows in the veins...injects the large intestine...with the fire to dry out, the stool will be closed and hemorrhoids will cause hemorrhoids." It means that excessive drinking can also get hemorrhoids. These discussions show that poor eating habits are an important cause of anorectal disease. Therefore, if you want to prevent anorectal diseases, you should pay attention to your diet first. In principle, pepper, mustard, spirits, and greasy, fried, seafood, raw and cold foods should be eaten as little as possible or not, and more vegetables, whole grains, etc. should be eaten. food.
Peppers and alcohol have a direct stimulating effect on the rectal mucosa. Excessive eating can cause the rectal mucosa to congest and expand and form hemorrhoids. Pepper and alcohol can also stimulate the anal flap and anal sinus, causing local inflammation and leading to anal sinusitis, anal papillitis, perianal abscess and other diseases. Fatty, sweet and thick taste can easily cause constipation, and long-term constipation is an important cause of anorectal disease. It has been reported that 42.2 people out of every 100,000 people in Europe, America and other countries suffer from colorectal cancer.

It is generally believed that a high-fat, high-protein, and low-fiber diet can increase bile fluid and anaerobic bacteria in the intestine, while the anaerobic Clostridium spp. in the intestine can convert deoxycholic acid into carcinogens3 -Methylanthracene. In addition, certain components in high-fat foods may also be broken down in the intestines into unsaturated cholesterol that has carcinogenic effects. Cold food can easily lead to diarrhea, which is also the cause of anorectal disease
The advantage of eating more vegetables and fruits is that they contain a lot of cellulose. When cellulose passes through the digestive tract, it can absorb water to make it swell. On the one hand, the swollen cellulose stimulates and strengthens gastrointestinal motility through swelling. The functions of digestion, absorption and excretion are strengthened. On the other hand, certain indigestible ingredients in food, secretions of the digestive tract, intestinal bacteria and harmful substances produced in body metabolism can be wrapped to form feces, thereby making the feces unblocked. Easy to do, not only reduces the incidence of hemorrhoids, but also has anti-cancer effects.
