An effective remedy to cure hemorrhoids and bleeding piles
Hemorrhoids, also called piles, are very common diseases of the anal region. It is estimated that approximately 75% of people in India are suffering from this problem. It refers to a collection of inflamed and swollen tissues in the anal or rectum area. The size of hemorrhoids may vary and they can be internal or external.
Internal hemorrhoids lie inside rectum whereas external hemorrhoids lie under the skin around the anus. It does not cause any specific symptoms; therefore it is difficult to be diagnosed by people. However some symptoms do occur, that may include bleeding after passing stool, itchy bottom, soreness, swelling and redness around anus.
The cause of hemorrhoids is not clear yet, but it may occur due to increased pressure in blood vessels surrounding the anus. It may also occur due to prolonged constipation and chronic diarrhea. The risk factors that may contribute to this condition are age, being obese, having a family history of the disease, and prolonged sitting hours.
Hemorrhoids symptoms often resolve after a few days, without the need for treatment. In some cases making lifestyle changes can help to prevent and treat hemorrhoids. However, some patients may also require medications that may ease their symptoms and bleeding caused by piles. Allopathic medicine use may be effective but it may cause adverse effects. Hence, physicians due to clinically proven effects and lack of adverse events often favor herbal drug treatments.
