Various Hemorrhoid Ayurvedic Treatment Modes and Home Remedies

Hemorrhoids are enlarged, bulging veins around the anal opening below the rectum. This condition is prevalent in adults, although a large number of people with hemorrhoids don’t feel the symptoms. 

Over half the world’s population has had hemorrhoids at some point in their lives. And while both men and women are equally likely to suffer from it, more men seek treatment than women. 

What are the Causes of Haemorrhoids or Piles?

The following lifestyle habits or underlying conditions can give rise to, or worsen, this condition - 

  • Sitting for too long at a stretch
  • Straining too hard during bowel movements because of diarrhea or constipation
  • Portal hypertension or hypertension in general 
  • Excessive weight can build pressure on the rectal veins, leading to this problem
  • Bad posture or insufficient muscle tone can also have a similar effect on the rectal vein. 
  • Pregnancy can indirectly cause hemorrhoids by leading to hypertension and increased strain during bowel movements
  • Smoking while undergoing bowel movements can worsen this condition for those who already have hemorrhoids. Doing this can cause severe internal bleeding of the rectal veins. 

What are the Symptoms of Haemorrhoids

Wondering if you have hemorrhoids? Consider whether you have the following symptoms - 

  • Rectal bleeding 
  • Painful, irritated anal region
  • Discharge 
  • Secondary anemia

Types of Piles Treatment in Ayurveda

Hemorrhoids can be categorized into internal and external hemorrhoids. The internal form of this disease does not cause pain as it occurs above the dentate line in the anal canal. 

That’s because the dentate line divides the two types of anal skin - the skin above the dentate line, which isn’t sensitive to pain, and the skin below it, which is much more sensitive to pain and irritation. However, internal hemorrhoids may enlargen and push out of the anal opening, leading to bleeding in some cases. 

External hemorrhoids, on the other hand, take place below the dentate line and are typically painful. These turn particularly distressing when the blood in the hemorrhoid clots and causes irritation around the pain-sensitive skin due to increased inflammation.

In general, there are four kinds of hemorrhoid Ayurvedic treatment that are carried out according to their specific conditions.
