Hemorrhoids (PILES)


Homoeopathy as the general rule; allopathy as a last resort


Increased straining during bowel movements may lead to hemorrhoids.

It is a common condition.

Hypertension, particularly portal hypertension, may also cause hemorrhoids.

Obesity can be a factor by increasing rectal vein pressure.

Sitting for prolonged periods of time can cause hemorrhoids.

Poor muscle tone or poor posture can result in too much pressure on the rectal veins.

Pregnancy causes hypertension and increases strain during bowel movements, so hemorrhoids are often associated with pregnancy.

Excessive consumption of alcohol or caffeine can cause hemorrhoids.

Both can cause diarrhea.

Note that caffeine ingestion increases blood pressure transiently, but is not thought to cause chronic hypertension.

Alcohol can also cause alcoholic liver disease leading to portal hypertension.

Insufficient water intake may cause a hard stool, or even chronic constipation, leading to hemorrhoidal irritation.

Eating fruit, vegetables (fiber rich food - fruits, vegetables and cereals are high in fiber) helps avoid conditions that lead to hemorrhoids.

Prevention of hemorrhoids
  • Drink more fluids (water / fruit juices).
  • Eat more dietary fiber (such as fruits, vegetables and cereals high in fiber). Exercise regularly.
  • Avoid sedentary habits.
  • Practice better posture.
  • Reduce bowel movement strain and time.
  • Hemorrhoid sufferers should avoid using laxatives and should strictly limit time straining during bowel movement.
  • Do not wear tight clothing and underwear will also contribute to irritation and poor muscle tone in the region and promote hemorrhoid development. Wear only very lightweight underwear.
  • Women who have painful stools / menstruation are advised to take extra dietary fiber and fluids.
  • Stool may contain irritants that increase the fissures associated with hemorrhoids. Wash the anus with cool water and soap after each stool.
  • These days people do not get sufficient supply of dietary fiber (20 to 25 grams daily) so small changes in daily diet may help a lot in prevention / treatment of hemorrhoids.
