Hemorrhoids are weak and distended blood vessels. So the first time I had hemorrhoids I took extra rutin, quercetin, and butcher's broom, herbs that are supposed to strengthen blood vessels and capillaries. I could have also added horse chestnut but there are rumors of side effects with that herb. The bleeding stopped in a couple of days. Didn't know if it were a coincidence, or if the supplements inhibited hemmy inflammation, or if my blood vessels throughout my body were actually strengthened.
about a year later I once again had copious bleeding but my stools were formed, with no urgency about once a day. So I assumed it might be hemorrhoids and took some left over butcher's broom and rutin.
After a couple of days the bleeding stopped. But just to be safe I scheduled a colonoscopy since it had been a while and I was overdue. No surprises, everything was fine.
