Piles - Possible Ways That Can Help Treat It!

Are you feeling an excruciating pain in the anal region? Is there a lump around the area that you can feel? Commonly called Piles, hemorrhoids is a phenomenon where the veins are swollen in the anal canal. This is because the walls of the veins are pretty thin and pain or discomfort arises when there is too much pressure on the walls. This pressure occurs most commonly due to constipation or passage of hard stool. 

There are two kinds of Piles- internal piles and the external piles; the discomfort and severity depend on the kind of piles you are suffering from. 

Causes behind it: 

  1. Constipation, i.e hard stool is the most common cause for piles. This can occur when you eat food with less fiber like junk food, breads and non-veg. Also low water intake can cause constipation. 
  2. Sitting for long hours can also cause piles. 
  3. Piles can also happen in the third trimester of pregnancy

The common symptoms associated with the condition are: 

  1. Bleeding from the anus 
  2. Painful lump or swelling near the anus 
  3. Anal itching 
  4. Tenderness or pain during bowel movements 
  5. Anal discharge 

Treatment options for piles 
In few cases, the Hemorrhoids can be treated with home remedies like a change in diet, warm sitz baths, and avoiding foods that may lead to constipation. For hemorrhoids of the first and second degree, medications, home remedies and manual methods can be used. However, when the condition persists for an extended period with severe pain or bleeding, it is best to consult a surgeon. 

The piles can be treated with: 
Injection or sclerotherapy:
Treats internal hemorrhoids 
Banding: Treatment for early stage hemorrhoids 
Surgery: Open surgery, stapled surgery or Laser 

Hemorrhoidectomy: This is the surgery done to remove piles. The physician performs a few minute cuts around the anus to remove them away. The area which is under operation is put under local or spinal anesthesia

  • Recovery: Hemorrhoidectomy is often a procedure for the outpatient case, and you are typically discharged on the same day itself. The patient usually takes about two to three weeks to recover fully. 
  • PPH: Another surgical method is PPH. It is also known as stapled hemorrhoidectomy. In this surgery, the surgeon uses a device which looks like a stapler to reposition the pile and struck off their supply of blood so that they eventually shrink and die out. This surgical procedure is less painful than traditional hemorrhoidectomy as it removes hemorrhoid to where there are fewer nerve endings, so it hurts less. There will be faster recovery, minor pain and slight bleeding. 

Laser for Piles- 
With the advent of laser treatment, piles treatment has become very easy, pain free and effective. Laser fiber is used to coagulate i.e. close the swollen blood vessels that form piles. This is done in an area with very few nerves so it is almost painless. It can be done under local or spinal anesthesia as a day care procedure. Patient can be discharged on the same day and can resume work after just 1 or 2 days.

Piles or haemorrhoids cause severe bleeding (coupled with severe pain and blood in the stool) in the anal region because of sudden increased pressure in the concerned area due to an abnormal enlargement of the rectal veins.

The haemorrhoids, which grow on the outer part of the anus, are more painful as compared to the internal haemorrhoids (which are generally not visible on the outside and grow on the insides of the rectal area).

Primary Causes-

The major causes of haemorrhoids are hereditary factors, excessive alcohol consumption, weight gain, lack of regular physical exercise, undiagnosed and chronic gastric disorders such as dysentery, diarrhoea or constipation, tumour in the pelvic areas and a significant enlargement of the uterus during pregnancy.

Piles - Know About Its Types And How to Prevent Them!

Piles, another term for haemorrhoids, are swollen blood vessels in or around the anus and rectum. Haemorrhoid swelling occurs when there is an increase in the pressure in the small vessels. Therefore, the vein walls become stretched, thin, and irritated by passing bowel movements, and this is when piles develop.

Types of Piles: Haemorrhoids are classified into two general categories:

  1. Internal haemorrhoids: Internal haemorrhoids are located far within the rectum, and cannot be seen or felt. They are normally located between 2 and 4 centimetres above the opening of the anus. The only symptom is usually bleeding.
  2. External haemorrhoids: External haemorrhoids occur on the outside edge of the anus under the skin, where there are many pain-sensing nerves. Despite the name, external piles aren’t always seen outside of the opening of the back passage.

Symptoms of piles: Generally, the symptoms of piles are not serious. They normally resolve on their own after a few days. These symptoms can also vary depending on the size, position, and grade of the pile. So before discussing the symptoms, let’s take a look at the grades. Grades are nothing but the intensity by which piles occur:

Grade 1: These are small swelling

Grade 2: These are larger swellings

Grade 3: In this case, it hangs out from the anus during bowel movements

Grade 4: In this case, the hanging from within the anus is permanent

The most common symptom is bleeding after going to the toilet or to pass stools. A lump in and around the anus, a feeling that the bowels haven’t emptied completely, watery discharge from the anus, an itchy or sore skin around your anus and pain and discomfort during or after a bowel movement are some of the common symptoms.

Cause of piles: Anyone at any age can be affected by piles. However, they are usually more common in elderly people and during pregnancy. Modern lifestyle, excessive consumption of junk food, stress, and improper eating habits accounts for a majority of anorectal complications, including piles. Diet has a pivotal role in both causing and preventing piles. People who eat high fiber diet are less likely to get haemorrhoids, but people those who prefer a diet high in processed foods are at greater risk of piles. There can be a lot of reasons. However, some of the basic reasons are low fibre diet, prolonged sitting on toilet, indigestion, obesity, diarrhoea, long-term coughing, having a family history of piles, excessive heavy weight lifting, spinal cord injury and lack of erect posture.

Prevention of piles

The preventive measures include:

  1. Eating plenty of fibre-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, and pulses
  2. Drinking plenty of fluids such as water helps prevent constipation
  3. Avoiding sitting in the same place for long time
  4. Staying active
  5. Simplest one is to avoid fighting the urge

Stapler Surgery For Piles 
Stapling is used to treat prolapsed hemorrhoids. A surgical staple fixes the prolapsed hemorrhoid back into place inside your rectum and cuts off the blood supply so that the tissue will shrink and be reabsorbed. Stapling recovery takes less time and is less painful than recovery from a hemorrhoidectomy.

Small changes in lifestyle can make bowels regular and faeces soft, thereby preventing constipation and piles. There are several lifestyle changes that may be adopted to reduce the symptoms of piles and reduce episodes of aggravated piles in susceptible individuals.

Thus, when we do Panchakarma treatment the bowel system is strengthened and on consuming high fibre rich food, drinking more water, eating more fruits can prevent from the piles. Let us now see on the panchakarma treatment.

Ayurvedic Remedies for piles
External treatments

  1. Sesame seed paste: Sesame or “til” is a good treatment for bleeding piles when applied externally to the affected area.

Treatment of piles by the Ayurvedic treatment of Panchakarma
Panchakarma is a formidable Ayurvedic treatment known for the purification of the body, mind and soul. It rejuvenates and detoxifies the body by removing accumulated toxins, thus improving metabolism by balancing the doshas.

It is usually a three-stage process.

  1. Purva (pre-operative)
  2. Pradhana (operative)
  3. Paschat (post operative)

Panchakarama covers a five step treatment out of which Virechan and Basti effectively helps in the treatment of piles.

1. Virechan- It removes pitta toxins such as herpes, zoster, jaundice, colitis and other infections. It clears bowel movement by cleaning the gall bladder and the liver.

Procedure: Concerned with the alimentary canal, it cures piles by a purgation process. Here the doshas are balanced in the form of waste excretion via faeces through the rectum. The heat produced from purgation medicines like Laxatives, Simple purgatives, Drastic purgatives, Hydragogues purgatives eradicates impurities from gall-bladder, liver and gastro-intestinal tract.

2. Basti- It treats vata dominated conditions and helps treat chronic diseases like constipation.

Procedure: It actively eliminates impurities through feces, urine and other excreta. Vata is located in the large intestine, which is why the medication directly affects ‘asthi dhatu’. Thus any medicines, when applied rectally, go into deeper bone tissues and cures vata disorders. It also gives relief from constipation.

If you are suffering from piles, consult a certified ayurvedic practitioner for treatment.

Why Homeopathy Is Best For Piles & Fistula?

Piles or fistula are two very severe problems which men can face at any point of thei life. These two medical conditions affect one of the main part of a men's system, i.e. the anus. But many a times people confuse one of these disorder with the other one.

What Are Piles?
Piles are the inflamed or swollen set of tissues which are present in the sensitive anal area. These can range from different sizes and can also be present in various areas i.e. internal or external. Internal piles are usually present between 2-4 cms above the anus opening whereas the external piles are present on the outside.

There are different symptoms for Piles

  • The person can experience severe to moderate pain in the rectum area.
  • Immense pain can also occur when the person is sitting or moving in a difficult position.
  • Experiencing discomfort, itchiness, or swelling of the anus is very common in Piles.
  • The person may see blood in his stool or problems related to digestion.

The causes of Piles can be of different reasons

  1. Chronic constipation
  2. Chronic diarrhea
  3. Lifting heavy weights
  4. Pregnancy

Treatment and Diagnosis

Homeopathy can be effectively used to treat piles. Most of the time, piles are caused due unhealthy lifestyle and food habits. So homeopathy can be easily treated with help of homeopathic methods which can be used to change one's food habits and keep them healthy.

What is Fistula?

The anus is like an exit point in the body for wastes and semen. Inside this anus, many small glands are present. If due to some reason, these glands or a single gland is blocked, then an abscess is formed which infects the anus and causes severe pain or abnormalities. This condition is known as Anus fistula.

There is no exact cause of fistula. Usually these are caused due to some severe accident or injury which affects the anus. It can also be caused due to some other disease which affects the anus like STDs, Crohn’s Disease, tuberculosis etc.

Here are some important symptoms

  1. Blockage of anal abscesses
  2. Pain and inflammation around the anus
  3. Immense pain with bowel movements
  4. Bleeding from the anus
  5. Bloody or foul-smelling drainage coming out from the anus

Treatment and Diagnosis 

Homeopathy can be a very important and efficient way by which fistula can be relived from. Homeopathy has a very high chance of solving fistula because homeopathic medicines and methods can cure the abscess completely. Due to the complete removal of the abscess, the normal tissues appear once again with time.

Haemorrhoids - What Should You Do To Manage Them At Home?

Piles, originally are dilated vessels inside the anus. They usually do not cause pain, but mainly bleed. Other than 1st degree, other piles may be felt outside while straining at stool. Sometimes they need to be put inside with finger. Other than bleeding, there may be itching, discharge or burning. Only first degree piles need to be managed at home by fibre diet, plenty of fluids, mild exercise & avoid straing, avoid jeans type clothes & avoid sedentary life. Rest higher degrees need to managed by an expert proctologist or surgeon. Female/ladies who develop piles during pregnancy, may need to wait upto 3 months post delivery, as these may subside in usual cases. Otherwise need some treatment after that.

Many women experience a temporary encounter with hemorrhoids when they are pregnant. Quite surprisingly, most people tend to experience this in their daily lives. By the age 50, a majority of people have encountered one or more symptoms of this ailment, including rectal pain, bleeding, itching and maybe prolapse where the hemorrhoids protrude out of the anal canal. Though this ailment can be rarely detrimental, it can be a painful intrusion. But thankfully, there are a lot of things we can do about them.

'

How may this be diagnosed?
Hemorrhoids are usually diagnosed from a plain medical history and health exam. External hemorrhoids, more commonly known as piles, are normally apparent, particularly if a blood clot is formed. Your physician shall perform a digital rectal test to detect blood in the stool. Then the physician may also inspect the anal tube with the aid of an anoscope, which is a short plastic channel interjected into the rectum with illumination. If he finds any evidence of microscopic blood or rectal bleeding in the stool, then there may be a need to perform a colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy to determine the probable causes of bleeding like cancer or colorectal polyps, specifically in women aged over 50.

How can they be managed at home?

Most of the common symptoms of piles can improve drastically with simple in-home measures. If you are suffering from occasional flare-ups, you may try the following:

  1. Eat a lot of fibre: It is recommended to add fibre to the diet; may be a fibre supplement like Citrucel, Fibre con, etc. When you drink a lot of water along with loads of fibre, stools get softened making them effortless to pass, which will reduce the pressure on the swollen veins. Eating broccoli, wheat, oats, beans, fresh fruits every day will help in decreasing bleeding caused due to piles. It also reduces swelling and inflammation. If you feel digestive issues with a sudden splurge of fibre in your diet, you may start slowly and gradually increase the amounts.
  2. Take a sitz bath: A sitz bath is a lukewarm water bath for the lower back portion of the body, which can help in relieving irritation, itching as well as spasms occurring in the sphincter muscle. You can either get small plastic tubs for a sitz bath or sit in a normal bathtub. Most physicians suggest a half an hour sitz bath after every bowel movement. Then tenderly dry the area and avoid wiping it hard.

There are several invasive treatments that can be opted if these conservative treatments are not able to help your condition. In such an instance, it is always wise to seek the advice of a medical practitioner.

In most cases, this condition can be treated by taking required medicines along with following a high-fibre diet. However, in some cases, the piles might be severe and need to be removed surgically.

The common symptoms of piles are blood discharge while eliminating faeces and abnormal enlargements around the anal region.

An Ayurvedic Approach To Piles Treatment!

Piles or Haemorrhoids is a disorder characterized by bleeding from anal opening during defecation. This bleeding can be in the form of drops or spurts. If untreated; mass protruding out from rectum is noticed. Initially this Pile mass gets reduced by itself but later on it progresses further so manual reduction of Pile mass becomes necessary. Later on these pile masses come out even on coughing sneezing, walking etc. Depending of their site of origin; these are divided in to internal and external Piles. 

How can you tell if you have Piles? 
Painless bleeding is the first sign of Piles. If it is not treated at this stage Pile mass protrudes out from Anal opening. The symptoms of piles are – 

Internal Piles:

  3. In third stage; Pile masses again come out after manual reduction. During sneezing coughing and walking also pile mass come out. 

External piles: A solid/ semi-solid lump in the anal region which becomes prominent while passing stools is the external haemorrhoid. When inflamed it constitutes of coagulated blood these are known as external haemorrhoids. 

Why do Piles occur?

  1. Chronic diarrhoea 
  2. Chronic constipation 
  3. Pregnancy 
  4. Lifting heavy weights 
  5. Putting too much pressure while passing stool 

The Ayurvedic Approach To Piles Treatment

  2. Fibre rich foods like green leafy vegetables salads should be consumed in adequate quantity. 
  3. To soften the stools, foods like papaya, amalaki, and figs are advised.

  2. Do regular Exercise 
  3. Avoid sedentary lifestyle. 

Along with this Kshar Karma is done at week or 10 days interval. In this treatment specialized Ayurvedic medicine is applied on Pile masses. Kshar Karma stops bleeding and suppresses Pile masses. When these measures do not work and the Pile masses are big enough to remain inside and protrude out often; Ksharsutra ligation of Pile mass is recommended. 

In this treatment; Ksharsutra – a medicated thread is ligated at the root of Pile masses. Medicine released from thread blocks the blood supply of pile mass and Pile mass sheds off within 5-7 days. No hospitalization or bed rest is required in this treatment. Patient can continue his daily routine activities as usual. So Ayurvedic Kshar Karma and Ksharsutra are quite effective in treating Piles in all its stages and Piles can be treated completely without surgery. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Piles - 4 Homeopathic Medicines To Treat It!

Piles or Haemorrhoids is a disease of the anal canal. The veins in this region get affected. They swell as blood stagnates inside them. This causes discomfort while passing stool. The most obvious symptoms of piles are bleeding and pain at the time of excretion or passing of the stool. For most of the patients with piles, sitting or standing becomes a tedious task.

What causes piles?
The primary reason behind the occurrence of piles is a patient’s sedentary lifestyle. Most of it also depends on upon his or her diet intake. Many of us consume a lot of carbohydrates, fats and proteins in our regular meals. But, we forget or are simply reluctant to take up physical exercises. This, in turn, leads to increase in body weight and hampers the activity of our digestive system. As a result, patients develop diseases like piles.
Diet plays a vital role in preventing piles. If we don’t add an adequate amount of fibre or roughage to our diet, there is a potential threat of developing piles. Fibres help with the convenient evacuation of the stool. In fact, fibres form the bulk of the stool. Besides, insufficient intake of water may also cause this disease.

Natural ways to tackle Piles
Piles can be managed or tackled by bringing in some changes in our lifestyle. Some of the ways of managing piles have been listed below:

  1. Add more roughage and fruits to your diet
  2. Exercise regularly
  3. Avoid laxatives
  4. Sit in a tub of hot water to get relief from the pain
  5. Drink plenty of water

Homoeopathic treatment for Piles
When it comes to the treatment of piles, Homeopathy is quite safe and an effective method to get rid of the problem. It doesn’t have any side effect on the patient’s health. It doesn’t include any painful surgery for removal of piles. Moreover, homoeopathy is budget-friendly. Here are some effective homoeopathic medicines, useful in curing piles:

  1. Hamamelis: This medicine is useful in stopping the bleeding in piles. It can cure any venous congestion and bleeding. It can also be taken when the patient develops a feeling of soreness.
  2. Ratanhia: It gives relief from the pain due to piles. A patient suffering from piles feels immense pain and a burning sensation at the time of stool evacuation and even for hours after that.
  3. Graphites: It is prescribed to a patient suffering from both constipation and piles. It is given to them who are obese, have skin eruptions and constipation.
  4. Nux Vomica: It is given to patients who have a sedentary lifestyle, take spicy food and are active smokers and alcohol drinkers. Usually, patients who have been advised to take Nux Vomica are aggressive in nature. It cures piles as well as digestive disorders.

Things to remember: These medicines are only some of the homoeopathic remedies available in the market. It is best to consult a homoeopathic practitioner for the perfect treatment.
