Can Ayurveda Help Manage Piles, Fistula And Fissures?

Can Ayurveda Help Manage Piles, Fistula And Fissures?

Piles, fistula and fissures are the most common problems affecting the rectum and the anus. Both the rectum as well as the anus has a very rich vascular supply. There could be swelling of these blood vessels or tearing which can lead to the above conditions. Read on to know additional details about each of these conditions. 

Piles: In simple words, swollen blood vessels of the anal region are called piles. It can be internal or external, depending on how far it is from the anal canal. If it is located farther inside the anal canal, it is called internal piles.

Causes:

  • Chronic constipation, where the person has to strain to pass stools
  • Smoking and genetics can also lead to piles.

Symptoms: Starts off as painless bleeding, which happens in drops after bowel movement; the swelling happens much later. They can continue to grow and develop blood clots.

Treatment:

  • In the early stages, once identified, simple topical medications for symptom relief are sufficient.
  • Diet should be rich in fiber, with fruits and vegetables
  • Increased water consumption
  • Surgery if the disease has reached the stage of blood clots
  • Prevention is advised if there is a family history by consuming a fiber-rich diet and maintaining hydration

Fistula: When an infected anal gland bursts into the anal canal, it constantly discharges pus into the anal canal and becomes a fistula. Hygienic toilet habits can help in preventing fistulas.

Symptoms:

  • A constant wet feeling in the anal area, due to pus discharge.
  • This would be intermittent, and there would be periods with no discharge.
  • There could be a foul smell due to pus discharge.

Diagnosis and Treatment:

  • Identifying the exact location is important as surgery may be required.
  • An ultrasound scan or an MRI is usually done.
  • Newer techniques like Video Assisted Anal Fistula Treatment (VAAFT) are used. This locates the piles accurately and uses electric current to seal it with staples and surgical glue.
  • Conventional surgery is also used for economic or accessibility reasons.
  • Fissures: These cracks anywhere in the length of the anal canal are extremely common.
  • Ksharasutra therapy is an Ayurvedic Parasurgical technique to treat problms like fistula in aano and other anorectal diseases. In this technique, a specially formed thread (Kshar Sutra) is used to cure the problem.

Symptoms

  • Very painful and the person may not want to go to the toilet
  • Rarely bleeding is also seen, maybe in very small amounts

Treatment:

  • Over 90% of the fissures do not require surgery
  • Switching to a high-fiber diet and improving hydration will help in managing these symptoms.
  • Topical relief can be provided by medications.
  • When they are recurrent, a procedure known as lateral sphincterotomy is done. This is an outpatient procedure and provides immediate relief.
  • Ksharasutra therapy is a highly recommended Ayurvedic Parasurgical technique to treat problms like fistula in ano and other anorectal diseases. In this technique, a specially formed thread (Kshar Sutra) is used to cure the problem.

Though one condition can lead to another, in most people, there is a strong genetic component, and working towards prevention is highly recommended.

I am 28 age I have fissures and I continue use pan d and two days have some bleeding on litan and fully stomach pain.

Fissure problem can be completely treated by Ayurvedic treatment. Weekly Kshar Karma sittings are given in this treatment. Usually Fissure heals completely in 4-5 weekly Kshar karma sittings. In this treatment specialized medicine is applied in fissure region. This medicine debrides the Fissure and induces healing. In the mean time you should start taking Sitz bath (Hot water tub bath) twice daily) followed by application of some soothing ointment like Sushruta ointment/ Coconut oil/ Cow's ghee. Take some mild stool softening Ayurvedic medicine like Sushruta Churna/ Haritaki Churna for proper bowel movement. For further assistance and appointment you may call reception at Sushruta Ano Rectal Institute.

Constipation from last 1 and half months. It has aggravated in the last 3 days and I am passing minimal stool. I am experiencing intense discomfort- bloating and headache and acidity. I have been seeing a gastroenterologist who said that it was nothing serious after doing a sigmoidoscopy. I wanted him to do a colonoscopy but he said was not required. Can't sleep at all. I am taking Pruwel 1 mg, Duphalac plain 45 ml. (Duphalac is making me worse.

Hello, what was the reason for ercp, Is it for passage of stones in cbd or diagnostic? Whether cbd stenting has been done or not? Since your info is incomplete to be on safer side you should have low fat diet means avoid fried things, less oil and milk products.

Make necessary dietary changes and combine it with REGULAR 45 min brisk walk / exercise and you can shed weight and ease the stomach issues. Focus on higher protein intake, lower fat and restrict carbohydrates to high fibre ones only. Avoid simple sugars completely. Eat outside food less and have good quantity of fresh foods (Fruits, Vegetables) which are not processed. Have small and frequent meals. Have plenty of water and sleep well. Destressing also helps. If you need us to help you with proper customised Diet plans for weight loss and gastric issues, you can opt for our online program or contact us through Lybrate' private consult'
