Herbal and Dietary Treatment of Hemorrhoids

January 7th, 2010

Hemorrhoids are a very distressing condition that involve the swelling of the veins of the anus and rectum. They are very similar to varicose veins whereby the veins lose their elasticity and swell and this results in the uncomfortable symptoms of hemorrhoids that may include itching, burning pain and bleeding.

In many cases hemorrhoids will respond quickly to the use of herbal medicines, both taken internally and applied externally, however it is also necessary to address the cause of the condition. Some common factors that can contribute to hemorrhoids include sitting or standing for long periods, lifting heavy objects, dehydration, obesity and lack of exercise, but without a doubt the largest factor is constipation and straining during defecation. A poor intake of dietary fiber is often a major culprit that increases the risk of development of hemorrhoids.

The fact that no animal other than human beings has ever be known to exhibit hemorrhoids can be seen as a major indication that something is wrong with our diets and improving the diet can help this condition dramatically, however herbal remedies can often provide immediate relief as well as being effective for the long term treatment of this very distressing condition.

Herbs for the treatment of hemorrhoids:

Pilewort – Piles are another name for hemorrhoids and this herb was named for its effectiveness for this condition. It tonifies the blood vessels and stops bleeding. Pilewort may be taken internally as a tea or alcohol-based tincture and it can also be applied externally as an ointment.

Witch hazel – this herb can help to ease the bleeding and swelling associated with hemorrhoids. It is applied externally as an ointment, or the liquid can be applied directly to the area with a sterile cotton pad. Use three times daily until relief is obtained.

Aloe Vera gel – the fresh pulp can be applied directly on the anus to provide pain relief and soothe any burning sensations.

Butcher’s Broom – this herb has been used throughout history for the treatment of hemorrhoids and varicose veins. When looking for preparations of Butcher’s Broom, try to find those that contain a minimum of 9-11% of ruscogenin content, which is the active ingredient. 100 mg should be taken three times daily.

Pine Bark and Grape Seed – these plant extracts contain proanthocyanins and anthocyanins which are substances that improve the structural integrity of the veins and in fact the entire circulatory system. It is also possible to obtain them through increasing consumption of berries such as blueberries, blackberries and strawberries as well as cherries.

Fiber – a low fiber diet increases the risk of straining during bowel movements and increasing fiber intake may actually be a very effective simple measure that can go a long way towards improving hemorrhoids. Increasing fruit and vegetable intake is a must, however there are also a wide variety of fiber supplements available, such as those containing Psyllium husk or Slippery Elm Bark, that can soften the stools and reduce straining.
It is very important to ensure that water intake is increased when taking fiber supplements.

Herbal medicine can greatly assist in reducing the symptoms of hemorrhoids however in very severe cases surgical treatment may be required. In such instances the herbal treatments and dietary changes outlined can be used to prevent the problem from occurring again following surgery.

Natural Remedy for Hemorrhoids and Constipation

January 4th, 2010

About half of the population in the U.S.A. will suffer from hemorrhoids at some point in life. Although hemorrhoids occur in almost everyone, they become large and cause problems in only 4 percent of the general population. Hemorrhoids do not usually go away completely once you have them. They can get improved, however, so that living with them is tolerable. Living with hemorrhoids can become intolerable especially when they are accompanied with constipation. On the other hand, continuous constipation can became the main cause for development of initial hemorrhoids and their further growth. In order to avoid constipation and to ensure regular stools, practitioners suggest diet rich in fiber and drinking eight or more glasses of water each day… but this is easier said than done.

If you aren’t able to eat enough high-fiber food or if you still suffer from constipation and hemorrhoids we suggest the following natural remedy based on common herbs:

- Boil one cup of Chamomile tea (Latin name: Matricaria recutia) and wait to chill for 5 minutes.

- Put one spoon Psyllium Seeds (Plantago Psyllium) in the cup and leave it for 30 minutes.

- Drink the mixture every day before bedtime.

- Don’t forget to drink a lot of water during the day.

(The needed herbs are available over the counter in the most pharmacies)

Regular consumption of the suggested herbal mixture will not only regulate your stool but also will help hemorrhoids to shrink as a result of the ingredients in the herbs and their combined effects. Children under two years, pregnant women and people allergic to dust or grass should avoid Psyllium.

Using natural herbal remedies to treat hemorrhoids is the best way to improve your general health, to avoid expensive surgeries or bothersome and long term conventional treatments. Sometimes the natural medicine has more efficient and less expensive therapies than the conventional medicine. When the hemorrhoids are in question, we can say that the conventional medicine has failed.

This natural remedy is not cure for hemorrhoids but it should relief hemorrhoidal pain, reduce rectal bleeding and will make living whit hemorrhoids much easier at no or very small cost.

Diarrhea As Cause of Hemorrhoids

January 1st, 2010

What is the connection between hemorrhoids and diarrhea? How can it cause hemorrhoids and what hemorrhoid treatment should you use here?

What is diarrhea?

Diarrhea is a watery stool occurring more than three times in a day, usually lasting a day or two. However, if prolonged it can be an indication of serious problems. It can be accompanied by cramping abdominal pain, bloating, nausea or an urgent need to use the bathroom.

Depending on the cause, a person may have a fever or even bloody stool. Later symptoms can be similar to hemorrhoids symptom, as both may cause rectal bleeding, itching or burning. Diarrhea can be temporary (acute), like an infection, or a long-term (chronic) problem.

Temporary usually last up to a month (3-4 weeks), and is related to infection by bacteria, virus or parasite.

Short-term can cause further discomfort if you all ready suffer from hemorrhoids, but cannot be hemorrhoids cause by it self.
Long-term diarrhea (chronic) is longer then 3-4 weeks and the cause for it comes from some kind of functional disorder like irritable bowel syndrome, similar bowel diseases, parasites, medication side effects (antibiotics, antacids, chemotherapy medications , high blood pressure drugs, nutritional supplements containing magnesium ), lactose intolerance or misuse of laxatives.

It is long-term diarrhea that is the cause of hemorrhoids, straining during very frequent bowel movements caused by diarrhea causes bulging of the veins in the anal canal, and that is what causes hemorrhoids.

When to visit a doctor?

Hemorrhoids and diarrhea are similar in several ways, people usually don’t take it seriously and it’s great for jokes, but there are several cases when you should not delay going to the doctor to get a proper diagnosis.

For example: if it lasts for more then three days, you suffer from pain in abdomen or rectum, have a high fever, there is blood in your stool or if you are dehydrated.

If any of these apply you should immediately see your doctor.

Children are exception, do not hesitate going to see the doctor, diarrhea is a very dangerous for children, causing loss of fluid and minerals.

How will your doctor diagnose diarrhea?

Your doctor can perform several exams like sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy. Diagnosing condition will depend on your condition, but usually doctor will look in your medical history, perform physical examination (using special instruments to check inside rectum and colon), take stool samples to check for parasites, bacteria or any other sign of disease, take blood tests, perform food test (for allergies).

What should you eat?

If you plan to combat hemorrhoids with diet, it means that you will be attacking the hemorrhoids cause. Usually it means stacking up with food that will soften your stool. With diarrhea you must take different route and include food that will harden your stool naturally.

Any food that hardens your stool is ok, bananas, rice, toast, crackers, toast all cause stool to harden, just be careful not to over do it. Avoid milk products and most of the fruits.

Traveler’s Diarrhea

It is most common in southern parts of our planet, close to the equator. Europe, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Australia (urban areas have one of the highest standards in the world for hygiene, but Australian outback is something different) all have very high standards when it comes to food and water.

Most of Africa, Asia and South America is where you should watch your food and water. Don’t drink tap water, don’t drink dairy products, don’t eat raw fruits or vegetables, avoid raw or rare meat. In case that you can not buy bottled water that you know for certain is OK, make sure to bring along either water purifying tablets or kits.

Also if you plan a trip in one of those areas, please contact you physician and ask for advice. Bugs that you can get, can cause a lot of damage, and make your life a misery for a long time to come.

Diarrhea is very rare the cause of hemorrhoids, but it can nonetheless contribute if you already have other predisposition. Treat it seriously and persistently and it should go away, usually all it takes is to find what food your body does not absorb well.

Diagnosing Hemorrhoids

December 30th, 2009

If you have been experiencing rectal bleeding and discomfort and think that you may have hemorrhoids, you may want to have your symptoms checked out by a doctor. Knowing what to expect of your visit can help you to feel more comfortable during your examination. Also, by understanding what will occur, you will be better prepared to get the help that you need for your hemorrhoids.

The first thing to consider is that is important to get a proper diagnoses. Even if you are certain that you have hemorrhoids, even if it is not the first time that you have had them, you should still see your physician and be examined. There are several other digestive disorders that could be contributing to the problem — some of them serious. Rectal bleeding can even be due to cancer, so it is important that you get it checked out.

The first thing your doctor will do is examine the anus and the rectal area. He or she will look for swollen blood vessels. These are a major symptom of hemorrhoids. Your physician will check for lumps in the skin close to the anus. He or she will then will then use a lubricated glove to examine you internally. Your physician will feel for lumps or abnormalities along the wall of the rectum. These lumps and abnormalities can be signs of hemorrhoids.

One of the tools that doctors will often use when examining for hemorrhoids is a proctoscope. This is a hollow tube with a light on it. It is inserted into the rectum and allows the doctor to more easily see any problems in that area. This instrument is most often used if internal hemorrhoids are suspected. Your doctor will be able to examine the lining of the rectum, determine if there is anything unusual or abnormal on the lining of the rectum, and determine if these abnormalities are hemorrhoids.

If your doctor is unable to determine the cause of the hemorrhoids, he ore she has the option of performing a sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. In this procedure, your doctor inserts a hollow tube (similar to the proctoscope) into your rectum and colon. In this manner he or she can examine not only the frontal area of the rectum, but into the intestinal area as well. This same tool is what doctors use to diagnose bleeding and discomfort not related to hemorrhoids.

If you have been experiencing symptoms of hemorrhoids, it is important to be examined by a physician to determine that there is not a larger problem. By knowing the cause of your problem, you can treat the bleeding and discomfort and get on with your life. Hemorrhoids don’t have to interfere with your life if you seek treatment now.

Piles – Home Remedies for Piles

December 26th, 2009

Piles is a very common ailment. Women have higher incidence than men. The reason behind it is not clearly known. It is more commonly seen in adolescent age group and aged persons who all seem to be more tensed.

In medical terminology, piles is known as hemorrhoids. Piles refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus or lower rectum are swollen and inflamed. It is the dilatation (varicosity) of the veins of anus. It appears as bluish coloured swellings due to stagnated blood. Piles arise due to the increased pressure of internal or external veins around the anal canal.

Piles can be both internal and external. Internal hemorrhoids, unless they are severe, cannot be seen or felt. There is however, a discharge of dark blood. External hemorrhoids can be seen around the outside of the anus, and there is a lot of pain but not much bleeding. In some cases, the veins burst and this results in what is known as bleeding piles.

• Itching in the rectal area.

• There may be bleeding. This will be bright red blood, not usually mixed in with the motion.

• There is often a feeling of something bulging, or hanging down from the anus.

• If a haemorrhoid at the outside of the anus gets a blood clot, it leads to tender lump.

• Anemia due to profuse bleeding.

• Wind formation in the stomach.

• Sitting becomes difficult due to pain.

If left untreated, piles can lead to complications including, infection, prolapse, necrosis and gangrene. Painful bleeding usually indicates startup of complications.

Symptoms Of Hemorrhoids

December 21st, 2009

Do you have hemorrhoids? Not sure? If you have or think that you may have hemorrhoids, your first step should be to evaluate your symptoms. By learning what symptoms you are exhibiting, you can evaluate what sort of care and treatment you need. There are several different symptoms of hemorrhoids.

The most common symptom of hemorrhoids is bleeding. Sometimes bleeding only occurs when the hemorrhoids initially appear. Most of the time, if you have hemorrhoids, you will notice blood on your stool. You may also notice blood on your underwear. If you have experienced these symptoms and think you might have hemorrhoids, the next step is to see your doctor. Your doctor will examine your anus for swollen blood vessels and bleeding. Bleeding, however is the least of the discomfort that can occur with hemorrhoids

An internal hemorrhoid, in addition to bleeding, will sometimes move from the interior of the rectum, where it has become swollen, to the exterior of the body – the anus. In addition to irritation and bleeding, you may find the area of your anus sore and swollen. You may also experience irritation and pain. All of these symptoms are indicative of a prolapsed hemorrhoid.

When a hemorrhoid is external, in addition to causing bleeding you may feel noticeable lumps in the area of your anus. This can mean that a series of blood clots have formed from bleeding under the skin. This can cause more swelling and pain on top of the pain the hemorrhoid may already be causing you.

Other hemorrhoid symptoms may occur when you move your bowels. It is easy for hemorrhoids to become irritated each time you move your bowels. Straining, for example, that occurs regularly will cause the hemorrhoids to bleed more and cause more pain. Rubbing or cleaning the area of the anus can also cause hemorrhoids to become irritated.

When hemorrhoids become irritated it can cause more pain in the area of the anus and may cause itching. The itching may occur due to the body’s production of mucus in that area. This irritates the hemorrhoids and causes them to become more inflamed. Unchecked, this cycle of irritation and inflammation can cause more serious problems and pain that won’t easily go away.

Hemorrhoids are easily identifiable by the symptoms above. While other symptoms may occur as well, these are the most common. Other symptoms you experience may be due to a digestive disease or could be a reaction to continuous irritation to the area of the rectum. Knowing the symptoms of hemorrhoids can help you know whether you have them. Knowing if you have hemorrhoids is the first step in treating them succesfully.

Prevention for Piles

November 27th, 2009

PILES

Piles are swellings on the inside of the anal canal, the short, muscular tube that connects the rectum (back passage) with the anus, in areas known as the anal cushions. They are round swellings that can reach the size of a grape. Piles are not varicose veins.

Types of piles:

Although piles develop from inside the anal canal, they can hang down out of their normal place. Piles can be described as follows.

First degree piles are swellings on the inside lining of the anal canal. They bleed but can’t be seen from outside the anus.

Second degree piles are larger and stick out (or prolapse) from the anus when you open your bowels, but return on their own afterwards.

Third degree piles are similar, but hang out from the anus and only return inside when pushed back in.

Fourth degree piles permanently hang down from the anus and you can’t push them back inside. They may become extremely swollen and painful if the blood in them clots.

Piles Symptoms:

Pain or irritation while passing stools, bleeding:

Pain at passing stools, slight bleeding in the case of internal trouble, and feeling of soreness and irritation after passing a stool are the usual symptoms of piles. The patient cannot sit comfortably due to itching , discomfory, and pain in the rectal region.

Piles causes:

Chronic constipation, bowel disorders:

The primary cause of piles is chronic constipation and other bowel disorders. The straining in order to evacuate the constipated bowels, and the pressure thus caused on the surrounding veins leads to piles. Piles are more common during pregnancy and in conditions affecting the liver and upper bowel.

Other causes:

Other causes are prolonged periods of standing or sitting , strenuous work, obesity, general weakness of the tissues of the body, mental tension, and heredity.

Piles home remedies:

Piles treatment using Dry Figs:

Three of four figs should be soaked overnight in water after being cleaned thoroughly in hot water. They should be taken first thing in the morning along with the water in which they were soaked. They should also be taken in evening in the similar manner. This treatment should be continued for three or four weeks. The tiny seeds of the fruit possess all excellent quality of stimulating peristaltic movement of the intestines. This facilitates easy evacuation of faeces and keeps the alimentary canal clean. The pressure on the anus thus being relieved, the hemorrhoids also contract.

Piles treatment using Mango Seeds:

Mango seeds are an effective remedy for bleeding piles. The seeds should be collected during the mango season, dried in the shade, powdered, and kept stored for use as medicine. This powder should be given in doses of about one and a half to two grams with or without honey, twice daily.

Piles treatment using Radish:

White radish is considered highly valuable in piles; 100 mg of grated radish mixed with a teaspoon of honey may be taken twice daily in treating this condition. This vegetable can also be taken in the form of juice mixed with a pinch of salt. It should be given in doses of 60 to 90 ml, morning and evening. White radish, well ground into a paste in milk. can also be applied over inflamed pile masses to relieve pain and swelling.

Piles treatment using Turnip:

The leaves of turnip have been found useful in this disease. The juice of these leaves should be extracted and 150 ml given to the patient. It is, however, necessary to take a proper diet of raw fruits and vegetables while taking this juice. For better results, 50 ml of the juice should be mixed with equal quantities of juices of watercress, spinach, and carrots.

Piles treatment using Bitter Gourd:

The juice of the fresh leaves of bitter gourd is also valuable in piles. Three teaspoons of the leaf juice, mixed with a glass of buttermilk, should be taken every morning for treating this condition. A paste of the roots of the bitter gourd plant can also be applied over piles with beneficial results.

Piles diet:

Fruit diet:

The treatment of the basic cause, namely, chronic constipation, is the only way to get  rid of the trouble. To begin with, the entire digestive tract must be given a complete rest for a few days and the intestines thoroughly cleansed. For this purpose, the patient should adopt an all-fruit diet for, at least, seven days. Thereafter he may adopt a diet of natural foods aimed at securing soft stools.

Other Piles treatment:

Exercise:

A patient with piles must make an all-out effort to tone up the entire system. Exercise plays an important corrective rule in this condition. Movements which exercise the abdominal muscles will improve circulation in the rectal region and relieve congestion.

Prevention:
You can reduce your risk of developing piles by eating a diet with plenty of fibre and
fluids, especially water.

What Are Hemorrhoids? How Do We Prevent And Treat Them?

November 19th, 2009

The Encarta dictionary describes them as painful varicose veins in the canal of the anus. It’s little wonder then why so many victims of this awful infliction, also known more commonly as piles, choose to suffer in silence.

Quite often anal bleeding is a common symptom of hemorrhoids which can be either internal or external. The internal types are those which cannot be seen and have to be diagnosed by your doctor, whereas the external ones can easily be seen and identified with the naked eye.

Many folks see having piles as extremely embarrassing, and as a consequence a lot of people chose to ignore the problem and hope they will go away on their own. Sometimes this will happen, but it really is ludicrous to drag out something which can be quite often cleared up quickly and easily with over-the-counter treatments.

There are actually quite a number of over the counter hemorrhoids treatment products available and it’s important to point out that both the doctor and pharmacist have seen and heard about a lot worse conditions and complaints than a few common piles.

Don’t suffer in silence if you think you have hemroids, as it really is unnecessary. Millions of folks have had them before you just as millions more will experience them long after yours have cleared up. Just explain your symptoms specifically and the experts will be able to choose a product which is most appropriate for your condition.

There are many causes of hemorrhoids, but the good news is that most can be easily prevented by changing certain dietary habits and lifestyle. Once again, you will get a proper prognosis from your doctor or pharmacist.

Here are some of the more common causes of hemorrhoids which may help you to prevent future cases if you take the necessary precautions: Straining during a bowel movement is a common cause as it poor diet. Obesity can be a problem just as it is in most health issues in the modern world. Pregnant women can sometimes be susceptible to hemorrhoids. Lack of exercise (also linked to obesity), constipation (linked to diet), and sitting and straining on the toilet for prolonged periods of time also contribute to the development of hemorrhoids

There are more causes, but the above mentioned are among the most common. Sometimes, some people will suffer with painful piles no matter what they do to try and prevent them, but the good news is there are many products available which both relieve the pain and irritation, and cure the hemorrhoids altogether.

Don’t suffer in silence, as hemorrhoids are often very easily treatable so long as you catch them at the early stages of the condition.
