Please minimize your fiber consumption. Go for easily passed stuff, like fats (flax/coconut oil), bone broths, soups, herbal teas, freshmade juices. Try to avoid the roughage, as that is what is bulking up your stool and making it hard. See www.fibermenace.com for more info.
Whoa. Now I am confused. This goes against everything I have ever heard about preventing/curing constipation. I have been having a hard time with it myself of late, but in my experience it was because I was not getting enough fiber and eating too much dairy. But according to this author, I guess that's because I was already "addicted" to fiber and have done permanent damage to my nether regions. Are there any other studies or sites online that back up what is being said on this website? I am open to hearing things that are different from conventional medical wisdom, but I need more than one source.
Going along with MsBlack's advice for magnesium, Natural Calm is super great at getting soft, easy to pass stools going. Usually overnight, for me.
Some remedies for hemmorhoids I've been working on with my DH: witch hazel sitz bath (it soaks in, even to ones you can't see), nettles and oatstraw tea, extra vitamin E. Also, 'legs up the wall' yoga pose and pelvic tilts can help with circulation and take the stress off those veins.
