It may give you temporary relief. Please take laxatives to avoid constipation. Triphala churna is easily available with ayurvedic medical stores. Have it regularly 5 gms in evening with lukewarm water. Take high fiber diet, with lots of liquid, avoid fasting.

Homeopathy is the best alternative to avoid surgery specially, in the cases of piles, fissure, fistula. There are many cases that were recommended operation but with homeopathy not only they were treated successfully but the surgery was also not done. Piles or haemorrhoids cause severe bleeding in the anal region due to an abnormal enlargement of the rectal veins. The bleeding occurs as a result of a sudden increase in pressure in the rectal area. The haemorrhoids which tend to grow in the exterior part of the anus tends to be severe painful as compared to the internal haemorrhoids (which are invisible and grows in the interior portion of the rectal area). The major causes of haemorrhoids are genetic factors, pelvic tumours, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, lack of regular physical exercise, undiagnosed and chronic gastric disorders like dysentery, diarrhoea or constipation and a significant increase in the weight of the uterus during pregnancy. The sign of piles might include intense pain and irritation in the rectal area along with the presence of blood in the faeces and abnormal swelling of the affected area. If taken in a prescribed dosage, homeopathy can be very effective in curing piles. The most beneficial homeopathic preparations for piles are: Nux vomica: This homeopathic preparation is useful in curing piles which display symptoms of extreme aggressiveness and intolerance to cold weather. If piles are caused due to excessive intake of spicy foods and alcohol or cigarettes, this homeopathic preparation can work as an effective cure. Hamamelis: This preparation is useful to cure piles which show symptoms of blood in the faeces along with a sensation of discomfort and contusion. Ratanhia: This preparation provides a remedy for severely painful hemorrhoids (which causes complications during excretion). Symptoms include severe pain which stays for several hours after excretion along with a burning sensation. It may be relieved with the help of cold water. Graphites: If you suffer from the symptoms of chronic constipation, frequent skin eruptions and recurrent instances of menstrual anomalies in females along with piles, this homeopathic medication can provide effective cure to you. Aesculus Hippocastanum: This homeopathic preparation provides an effective remedy for non-bleeding hemorrhoids along with the symptoms of severe back pain and pain in the anal regions. Arsenic Album: This homeopathic preparation can prove effective in curing piles with the symptoms of a burning sensation during any forms of physical movement. If the hemorrhoids bleed extensively and are bluish in color, this homeopathic preparation can be beneficial in such cases.

Anal Fistula can not be treated just by application of some ointments nor by oral medicines. Usually surgery is advised for Anal fistula. But it is not a right choice for the reason of recurrence of problem after surgery and other complications like stool incontinence (inability to hold stool) etc. However Fistula can be completely treated by Graded Ksharsutra treatment. Clinical trials conducted by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) have confirmed that Ksharsutra treatment is more convenient and more effective than surgery in patients suffering from Anal Fistula. In this treatment; Graded Ksharsutra - a specialized medicated thread is placed in the fistula tract which is changed at a week or 10 days interval. No. Of Graded Ksharsutra changes required for complete healing of Fistula depends on depth, direction and branching pattern of Fistula. No hospitalization or bed rest is required in this treatment. You can continue your normal routine activities as usual. For further support and appointment you may call reception at Sushruta Ano Rectal Institute.
