People do not consider homeopathy medicine for piles at its early stages and this is one of the reason why they end up under a surgeon’s knife. Because homeopathy can help in the complete recovery of piles and the sooner the treatment better are the chances of a complete recovery. Homeopathy helps make the vein valves stronger which is correlated to the disturbances of venous system thereby helping quicker recovery. The treatment moreover is entirely safe, gentle and the cure of piles is mostly permanent
What is Piles? Hemorrhoids or piles (Bawasir in Hindi) are vascular swelling of the tissues of anus and rectum. It is a problem very common in adults both men and women. They are results of excessive straining for stool as if in constipation. Sometimes they can be due to portal hypertension. It is engorged, enlarged and inflamed blood vessels in or around the lower portion of the rectum and at anus. Internal hemorrhoids (piles) arise from congestion of plexus of superior hemorrhoid veins, external hemorrhoids (piles) arise from the inferior hemorrhoid veins. This may hand outside the anus. It may be of a size of a pea or large protrusions in chronic cases. Anal skin tags or rectal skin tags are often mistaken for piles, these are harmless growths that hang off the skin (also called sentinel pile) . They may be surgically removed if large enough to cause problems.
Homeopathy medicine for piles treats both internal and external cases. Hemorrhoids (piles) often result from straining to have a bowel movement. Pile, fissures with severe burning pain results from constipation, habits like constant sitting in one position, over eating of fast food etc. Managing interventions involve high fiber diet, avoidance of straining use of medication to relieve pain, lower the inflammation and strengthening the venous walls
Survey on Piles cases: One study in India showed that approximately 80% of the cases are in the 21-50 year age group, the percentage of males and females was 67% and 33% respectively. Due to internal pressure, internal hemorrhoids tend to congest, bleed and eventually prolapse, while in external hemorrhoids painful thrombosis may develop. The study further suggests that constipation, spicy food and straining are the main causes in 62% of cases. Alcohol, emotional stress or sedentary habits have also been reported to be predisposing factors for hemorrhoids.
Piles Cure: Piles or hemorrhoids usually disappear on their own after some time. Piles treatment especially homeopathy medicine for piles during such time can help reduce itching and discomfort. Piles medicine is recommended by doctors based on the stage of piles. Most of the hemorrhoids can be treated using the following methods: Over-the-counter topical treatments like creams, ointments (relieve any swelling and discomfort). Laxatives (for general constipation), Painkillers (like paracetamol) non-surgical procedures such as sclerotherapy and banding (if the piles have developed above the dentate line), may be recommended. Around 1 in every 10 people with the condition will eventually need surgery. Managing interventions involve high fiber diets, avoidance of straining in toilet, use of medication to relieve pain, lower the inflammation and strengthening the venous walls.
