The answer to that question lies in the severity of your symptoms.
Finding the Best Hemorrhoid Treatment will depend on what type of hemorrhoids you are suffering from and whether or not they have developed into a stage where they will require a more complicated treatment.
All of the forms of symptomatic hemorrhoids come into being because there is some kind of a problem with the vascular structures that interlace the anal canal and rectum.
Blood flow is a key factor in the proper function of the bowel and its connected and supporting systems such as the rectum, colon, anal opening etc.
When stress and strain from any number of possible sources begins to obstruct this proper flow that is when problems arise.

The Best Hemorrhoid Treatment then will depend on which one of these types of hemorrhoids you are dealing with.
Internal Hemorrhoids that are grade 1 or 2 are probably going to be able to be reversed using dietary and lifestyle changes which are outlined on the home hemorrhoid treatment page.
Internal Hemorrhoids that are grade 3 or 4 have most likely been developing for a while and could require some surgical intervention if they don’t respond to the dietary and lifestyle changes referred to above.
This intervention can take several forms. Some of the choices are outlined on the hemorrhoid removal page.
External Hemorrhoids that are just beginning to from and have not reached a stage of painful thrombosis or clotting can often be successfully reduced by using the methods on the home hemorrhoid treatment page.
External Hemorrhoids that are large and thrombosed may require lancing to reduce pressure and pain as outlined on the Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid page.
As trite as it may sound, the best hemorrhoid treatment is the one that works for you. Don’t be narrow minded and expect that there is a one and only cure that is going to cover every single situation out there.
Be willing to try what looks like it will have the best chance of helping you and if it doesn’t get the results you expected, then try another one. This is your health and well being we are talking about.
A person doesn’t just get hemorrhoids overnight. They develop over time, and it is very likely that it may take a bit of time before the beneficial effects of any treatment will begin to help you.
Not everyone fits into a cookie cutter approach to eliminating the symptoms. There are however those products and systems out there that have a very good rate of success, with lots of testimonials from happy users to back them up.
Your best bet is to read up on those testimonials and decide if you are willing to give it a try.
The one pearl of wisdom I would offer you and that is resounded by almost every expert on finding the best hemorrhoid treatment is that the cornerstone of any long term success that you have in reducing or eliminating this problem will be founded on dietary and lifestyle changes.
Look for a system that will help you achieve those changes and not just mask the causes of the problem.
