Homeopathy for Treating Hemorrhoids

by : Juliet Cohen

Hemorrhoids also called piles. Hemorrhoids are dilated or bulging veins of the rectum and anus, caused by increased pressure in the rectal veins. Hemorrhoids are common. In the USA, the prevalence is about 4.4%. It is estimated that approximately one half of all Americans have had this condition by the age of 50, and that 50% to 85% of the world's population will be affected by hemorrhoids at some time in their life. Hemorrhoids may result from straining to move stool. Other contributing factors include pregnancy, aging, chronic constipation or diarrhea, and anal intercourse. There are two kinds of hemorrhoids: internal and external.

Internal hemorrhoids are pretty innocuous. The almost popular symptom of domestic hemorrhoids is sunny crimson blood covering the feces, on bathroom newspaper, or in the bathroom bowl. However, a domestic hemorrhoid may bulge through the anus outside the system, becoming annoyed and traumatic. This is known as a jutting hemorrhoid. External hemorrhoids induce most of the symptoms we usually learn about pain, combustion, and itching. Medical handling of hemorrhoids is initially aimed at relieving symptoms. Application of crude jelly, cortisone creams, hemorrhoidal ointment or suppositories to the stricken region.

The better manner to forbid hemorrhoids is to hold stools tender so they give well, therefore decreasing force and straining, and to abandon bowels as shortly as potential after the impulse occurs. Exercise, including walk, and increased fibre in the diet assistance cut impairment and straining by producing stools that are softer and easier to give. Homeopathic remedies can offer gentle, safe relief for treating hemorrhoids. Calcarea fluorica may be indicated for hemorrhoids with bleeding and itching in the anal region, or internal hemorrhoids causing soreness in the very low back and sacrum. Aloes is also a most useful haemorrhoidal remedy.

It is indicated where the piles protrude like a bunch of grapes, bleeding often and profusely, and are greatly relieved by the application of cold water. Eating fiber-rich bulking agents such as plantain and Psyllium seed husks to help create a softer stool that is easier to pass, to lessen the irritation of existing hemorrhoids. Pulsatilla may be helpful in cases where the hemorrhoids are bleeding, painful, and itchy. They may be protruding, and individuals may feel worse when lying down.
