Piles or Hemorrhoid

Piles or hemorrhoid

Hemorrhoid in physiological state act as a cushion composed of arterio-venous channels and connective tissue in the rectum that aid the passage of stool, but due to excess pressure in the abdominal area or pelvic area blood vessels near the anus are engorged and swollen and their walls becomes stretched, thin and irritated by passing stool.

Classification: it is of two types
Internal hemorrhoid is located higher in the inside lining of the rectum cannot felt unless they are substantially enlarged. It usually presents as painless bleeding. Sometimes internal hemorrhoids prolapsed or protrude outside the anus you may be able to see or feel them as moist of skin. Prolapsed hemorrhoids may hurt because the anus is dense with pain sensing nerve. Prolapsed hemorrhoids usually recede into the rectum on their own or by gently pushed back into place.
    External hemorrhoids are located underneath the skin that surrounds the anus and can be felt when they swell. Blood clots sometimes form within prolapsed external hemorrhoids, which is extremely painful (thrombosis). It present with pain in anal area with blood or without blood.


Symptoms:
    Itching
    Rectal pain
    Rectal bleeding
    Hemorrhoid is generally not dangerous unless they become infected. Complication can include thrombosed or strangulated hemorrhoids, bacterial infection and skin fissures. Rely bleeding from hemorrhoid lead to anemia.


Causes: 
    Mechanical causes: any activity that puts sustained pressure on the tissue in the anal or pelvic floor area e. G.
    
 Constipation
 Pregnancy
 Carrying or lifting heavy loads
 Sitting or standing for long periods, long distance driving, prolong working on the desk or bicycling
    
    Dietary factors: e. G. Low fiber diet, oily spicy and processed food, food in low micro minerals etc.
    Aging: connective tissue becomes less resilient in aged person.
    Overweight and obesity: this leads to poor vascular health as result of inflammation and poor nutrition.

Predisposing factors: deficit in anti-inflammatory foods combined with an over consumption of inflammatory food contributes to unhealthy blood vessel function throughout the body including anal area.


    Low fiber diet
    High in refined carbohydrate and animal products.
    Diet low in essential fats e. G. Omega 3
    Diet low in micro minerals including zinc & chromium
    High alcohol consumption.
    Obesity or overweight


All the above are the risk factors for inflammation which is aggravated by constipation, pregnancy, standing for long period or prolong sitting on desk.

Management:


    Reduction of constipation and soften stool by consuming enough fiber and water.
    Strengthen and fortify vascular and connective tissue in the anal area and elsewhere by consumption of anti inflammatory diet.
    Lifestyle measures to avoid hemorrhoids e. G. Good bowel function, exercise and healthy evacuation posture.
    Reducing constipation and softening stool:
    Consume high fiber foods as a part of high biber diet. < >Grain products: (6-11 servings of grain product in your diet is required daily) whole grain breads, whole wheat, whole grain rye, mixed grain, cracked wheat, buns, muffins. Brown ricewhole wheat pasta or brown rice pastacereals made from whole grain oatmeal ground flax, wheat germ or wheat bran in baked goods vegetables: (3-5 servings daily) dark green leafy vegetables contain heigest amounts of fiber e. G. Spinach, broccoli, green peas, green beans, turnip greens. Fruits: (2-3 serving of fruits) apples. Oranges, pears, peaches. Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries) dried fruits (dates, prunes (alu bukhara), apricots (khubaanee) legumes, nuts and seeds:
    
 Black bean, green beans, peas, kidney bean, lentils, peanut, soy bean
 Walnuts, peanuts, cashews, sunflower seeds
    
    


,

High fiber food relieves the constipation which ultimately reduces the abdominal and colonic pressure resulting low incidence of hemorrhoid.


    Plenty of water as a part of a hemorrhoid diet: water is key for fiber to function as an antidote to constipation
    Avoid a diet high in refined carbohydrate as part of your hemorrhoid diet.
    Avoid saturated fats, non vegetarian food, trans-fats which leads to inflammation.
    Strengthen and fortify vascular and connective tissue in the anal area and elsewhere by consumption of anti inflammatory diet.
    
 Omega 3 fat: it plays important role in maintaining healthy skin and mucus membrane. It has important anti inflammatory function which is extremely useful when it is consumed in a condition like hemorrhoids. As the consumption of omega 3 fat increases ratio of omega 6 and omega 3 lowers. It is abundant in cold water fish and their oils and in seeds and their oils e. G. Flax seeds
    
    


“flax seeds (alsi)- soak ¼ cup of flax seeds overnight in a glass of water and drink the gel on next day or boil it till the water become half and drink the gel on same day.”


    Vitamin c: it maintains the healthy blood vessels and maintain tissue matrix. And increases the body immunity also. Rich source are blackberries, raspberries, broccoli, spinach, guavas, amla, lime melon, orange, papaya, pineapple, tomato.
    Vitamin e: it is a fat soluble vitamin which maintains healthy cell membrane as well as the prevention of inflammation. It is helpful in healing the inflamed tissue and trying to shrink the hemorrhoids. Rich source of it are nuts and seeds.
    Magnesium: it is a key mineral for vascular tone and integrity as well as nerve and muscle function. It increases the peristaltic action of the colon that propels feces towards the anus. Dark leafy vegetables are rich source of magnesium.
    Zinc: it plays important role of anti inflammatory diet and beneficial for hemorrhoid. Nuts and grains are rich source. You can supplement with 9mg /day (adult dose) aaaa
    Lifestyle measures to avoid hemorrhoids:
    
 Proper defcation technique: avoid straining when seated on the toilet. “posture key factor is that your bent knees remain higher than your hips.” this posture promotes easier elimination and avoid strain or pressure in the anal are thus contributes in minimizing hemorrhoids.
 Exercise: it is an important factor to maintain the tone of abdominal and pelvic floor muscle to avoid hemorrhoids. Kegel exercise strengthen the pelvic floor muscle which is done as follow
    
    


First step – locate the pelvic floor muscle “ stop urination in midstream, now you have located the pelvic floor muscle.

Second step- lye down & contract these muscle for a slow count of five.

Third step- release the muscles to a slow count of five

Repeat this exercise for 10 times three times daily


    Avoid activities that put pressure on your back e. G. Prolong standing, sitting on desk for long time, strenuous work, lifting or carrying heavy materials.
    Avoid stress which is a risk factor for hemorrhoids as it aids in constipatin and inflammation. Stress release the harmones which inhibit bowel movement.
    Chew food slowly which helps in digestion and absorption of nutrients.
    Take small and frequent meals.
    Dinner should be light and 2 hour before retiring to bed.

Pain In TMJ!

Pain In TMJ!

Diagnosing jaw problems and pains TMD and TMJ
More than fifteen percent of Indian adults suffer from chronic facial pain.
Common symptoms can include pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth or even head and neck aches.
There are two joints and several jaw muscles which make it possible to open and close the mouth. They work together when you chew, speak, and swallow.
These structures include muscles and ligaments, as well as the jaw bone, the mandible (lower jaw) with two joints, the TMJ's.
The TM joint is one of the most complex joints in the body. Located on each side of the head, these joints work together and can make many different movements, including a combination of rotating and gliding action when chewing and speaking.
Several muscles help open and close the mouth. They control the lower jaw (mandible) as it moves forward, backward, and side-to-side.
Both TM joints are involved in these movements. Each TM joint has a disc between the ball and socket. The disc cushions the load while enabling the jaw to open widely and perform rotating and translocational movements.
Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones from working together properly may result in a painful TMJ disorder.
If you are suffering from this type of pain, your dentist can help identify its source with a thorough exam and appropriate x-rays.
Often, the problem is a sinus or a toothache or it could be an early stage of periodontal disease.
But for some pain, the cause is not so easily diagnosed.
The pain could be related to the facial muscles, the jaw or temporomandibular joint, located in the front of the ear.
Treatments for this pain may include stress-reducing exercises, muscle relaxants, or wearing a mouth protector to prevent teeth grinding.
They've been successful for many and your dentist can recommend which is best for you.

Anal Fissure - Non Surgical Treatment Is Better Than Surgery!

Anal Fissure - Non Surgical Treatment Is Better Than Surgery!

An anal fissure or fissure-in-ano is a small, cut in the skin in anal passage which results because of trauma to skin by passing hard stool in this region. Sometimes pain is so severe that patient tends to avoid passing stool in an attempt to stay away from pain.

Symptoms of Anal Fissure:

• Pain in anal region while passing stool; it may be burning/pricking/Itching in nature.

Bleeding may or may not be there.

• If untreated for long time; a skin tag known as Sentinel tag or Sentinel Piles develops from the lower end of fissure.

Causes

The causes related to the emergence of an anal fissure include:

• Passing hard stool which causes frictional injury to inner lining of anal passage.

• Repeated bowel movement or diarrhea

• Trauma to anal canal like by enema nozzle

Why non surgical treatment is better than Surgery:

Usually surgery (Lateral sphincterotomy) is advised in a view to relieve spasm in anal region so that Fissure starts healing but there are certain complications like stool incontinence etc. associated with this procedure which makes non surgical approach better than surgical intervention. Some of the reasons which make non surgical approach better than surgery for anal fissure are as follows:

• Acute anal fissure can be conveniently treated by Graded Kshar Karma Treatment. In this treatment a specialized Ayurvedic medicine is applied in fissure region which debrides the fissure and promotes healing. In this way fissure heals completely. So, no need for any surgery at this stage and thus no complication like bleeding, pain, stool incontinence, etc.

• When Fissure is not treated at this stage; a skin tag known as sentinel piles develops from the lower end of fissure. This condition also can be managed by Graded Ksharsutra TM Treatment. In this treatment, Graded Ksharsutra TM - a specialized medicated thread is ligated at the root of sentinel piles and sentinel tag gets detached in 3-5 days. No hospitalization or bed rest is required in this treatment. So, at this stage also fissure can be managed without surgery.

• Delayed healing and Recurrence of Anal fissure are other complications seen after Anal Fissure surgery. Such complications are not seen in Graded Kshar Karma and Ksharsutra Treatment.

• In some case stool incontinence (inability to hold stool; which is far worse than Anal fissure itself) is also seen after Anal Fissure surgery. However, there is no harm to stool control in Graded Kshar Karma and Ksharsutra Treatment.

• No hospitalization or bed rest is required in Graded Kshar Karma and Ksharsutra treatment. Hospitalization and bed rest for a considerable time period is necessary in surgery.

• Graded Kshar Karma and Ksharsutra are more economical than surgery. With this discussion; it is for sure that non surgical treatment for Anal Fissure is far better than Surgery.

In this treatment; Graded Kshar - a specialized Ayurvedic medicine is applied in fissure region. This medicine debrides the fissure and induces healing. Usually pain subsides in a week or 10 days time period when fissure is still in healing phase.

Considering pain has subsided; some patients discontinue the treatment to further aggravate and complicate the problem. For complete healing of anal fissure usually 3-5 Graded Kshar Karma sittings are required at a weekly interval. In between these weekly sittings patients are advised to apply certain medicines in anal passage by themselves. If anal fissure has progressed to development of sentinel tag then Graded Ksharsutra TM treatment is the treatment of choice.

In this treatment Graded Ksharsutra TM is ligated at the root of sentinel tag. Medicine released from Ksharsutra blocks the blood supply of sentinel tag and it sheds off in a week or 10 days time period. No hospitalization or bed rest is required in this treatment. Patient can continue his normal routine activities as usual during his treatment. So, you can say no to surgery in Anal fissure.
