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.
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.
Mechanical causes: any activity that puts sustained pressure on the tissue in the anal or pelvic floor area e. G.
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.
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.
Morning walk for 35 minutes daily
Meditation and exercise daily for 30 minutes without strain.
No smoking, no alcohol no tobacco
Non oily, non spicy and processed food is to be avoided.
No hurry worry and curry
Treatment: it is symptomatic. (as per advice of physician exclusively) e. G.
Pain- local application of xylocain gel, proctocydel ointment etc. Analgesic and anti-inflammatory drug like ibugesic after meal or turmeric with milk
Infection- antibiotic e. G. Terramycin sf 500 mg 6 hourly for 5 days and metronidizol 400 mg 1 tab. Thrice daily for 5 days.
Supplement with vitamins e & c, mineral zinc and magnesium
Stool softener like softovac sf, mucain gel
Aurvedic medicin like pilex aesculus hippocatanum
Homeopathic medicin like aesculus hippocastanum
Looking down at the manhood and discovering it has developed penis bumps is never a pleasant surprise for a guy. The presence of bumps signals a new worry about his penis health, although often the bumps don't correlate with a significant health issue. Penis bumps can come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, so it's no surprise that they can be caused by many different things. One of the causes many men don't think about is hives - so learning more about hives prepares a guy for dealing with them.
What are hives?
Hives is the common name used to describe a condition that is medically known as urticarial. They present as welts on the skin. Some can be small and others can be relatively large. In some instances, they are raised slightly, which gives them a bump-like look; in other instances, they may more closely resemble a rash. Often one welt will "bleed" into another, making the two appear as one large welt.
Hives are usually circular in shape. Often, especially with larger welts, they will be a deep red around the perimeter and a paler red in the center. Hives usually itch, causing discomfort; when they appear as penis bumps, it can be embarrassing for a man, as he often is caught scratching "down there."
Individual hives don't usually last long, often fading away in 24 hours - but they are usually replaced by new hives. It is not unusual for a case of acute hives to last as long as six weeks, with old hives fading and new ones replacing them. If a bout of hives continues beyond 6 weeks, it is considered a chronic case.
What causes hives?
Hives are basically an allergic reaction on the skin. Some "trigger" sends a signal to the body to release histamines to fight the trigger. This reaction causes the hives to form. Therefore, if a guy knows what his hives triggers are, he can take steps to avoid those triggers and thereby prevent hives from occurring.
Unfortunately, sometimes determining exactly what the trigger is can be challenging, mainly because many things are associated with triggering hives. Some of the more common causes include:
- Pets. Many dogs, cats and other animals shed dander, which may be a hives trigger.
- Insect bites and stings.
- Viral or fungal infections.
- Certain foods, including shellfish, nuts, milk, chocolate, berries, eggs, soy, citrus fruits, etc.
- Exposure to the sun.
- Certain chemicals (including some in soaps or laundry detergents).
With such a wide range, narrowing down a trigger may take a lot of time. Working with a doctor is advised. They will likely recommend that a person keeps a comprehensive journal of all the foods, medicines, etc. that he takes and any exposures he may have to potential triggers. The journal will include, as close as possible, the time when a person may have been exposed to a trigger, so that a link can be theorized if hives occur soon after. (Hives may occur within minutes, but sometimes may take about two hours to show up).
Once hives triggers are identified, a person can take steps to avoid those triggers. He also can learn what treatments he can use to help deal with the symptoms of hives.
As mentioned, penis bumps caused by hives tend to itch greatly. Regular use of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help alleviate this. A crème that contains a combination of a high-end emollient (like Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) will provide moisture that can help soothe itching. It also helps if the crème contains alpha lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant which strengthens penis skin by fighting free radicals.
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition wherein the body doesn’t metabolise sugar properly. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, is responsible for carrying the sugar or glucose, from the bloodstream to the individual cells. When the pancreas fails to produce insulin, glucose builds up in your bloodstream and enters your urine. Homeopathy focuses on the overall health of the individual. Homeopathic medicines for diabetes include:
1. Abroma Augusta: This homeopathic medicine is best for diabetics who have weak muscles, increased appetites and frequent urination.
2. Phosphorus: If symptoms include weak vision, Phosphorus is the best remedy for it.
3. Syzygium Jambolanum: This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for diabetes mellitus. It acts efficiently and promptly in lowering sugar levels.
4. Phosphoric acid: If you feel exhausted or weak all the time, either physically or mentally, then Phosphoric acid is beneficial. Weak memory, forgetfulness and numb feet are also treated with Phosphoric acid.
1. Lachesis, Arnica, Belladonna and Phosphorus are combined in a treatment to treat retinopathy, which is damage to the eyes caused by diabetes.
2. Serum Anguillae, Arsenic Album and Lycopodium are used together to treat kidney damage (nephropathy) in diabetics.
3. Helonias, Sulphur and Phosphoric acid are taken to deal with neuropathy or nerve problems such as numbness in feet and hands.
4. Syzygium Jambolanum is combined with Secale Cornutum to treat skin ulcers, which is a common problem among diabetics.
5. For people suffering from constipation due to diabetes, Natrum Sulph, Defloratum and Carlsbad are the best medicines.
6. To improve weak memory, Phosphoric acid, Nux Vom and Kali Phos are the best remedies for diabetics.
7. Sometimes diabetics complain of extreme, incapacitating weakness. To improve energy and boost overall health, Carbo Veg, Phosphoric acid, Phosphorus and Arsenic Album are recommended.
