Top Homeopathic Medicines For Piles

homeopathic medicine for piles

Piles or hemorrhoids refer to swollen, dilated, engorged veins in and around the anus. In this condition, the veins around the anus or lower rectum become swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids are a problem in both men and women. Homeopathic medicine for piles is prescribed according to individual symptoms to treat the condition on a long-term basis.
The leading causes of piles include a sedentary lifestyle, prolonged sitting, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea, low fiber content in the diet, excessive use of alcohol, obesity and increased straining during defecation. Pregnancy and genetics also play an essential role in the development of piles.

Why Choose Homeopathy for Treatment of Piles?

Conventional treatment for piles involves the use of medicines that make the condition more manageable but do not help treat it. These medicines offer temporary relief from the symptoms, and continuous use is often necessary. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications for piles include ointments, pads, creams and, painkillers. In case of grade 4 piles (or hemorrhoids) cases, surgery is the only option given to most people.
Homeopathy offers comprehensive treatment options that help treat the condition and ease the symptoms of piles. Some significant benefits of homeopathy regarding piles/hemorrhoids treatment include:

Homeopathic Medicines for Piles have No Side-Effects

Homeopathic medicines for piles/ hemorrhoids do not cause any side effects because of these are made of natural substances that are highly diluted. Over-the-counter remedies for piles only help relieve the symptoms, and certain side-effects come with their usage. For example, creams containing corticosteroids are recommended for reducing pain and inflammation for piles, but prolonged usage of these cause skin reactions, increased sweating and growth of body hair, inflammation of hair follicles and increased vulnerability to infections.

Homeopathy Offers Natural Remedies to Treat Piles

As an ancient 200-year-old medical science, homeopathy uses cures found in nature that help restore the natural healing processes of the body. Homeopathic treatment for piles involves a comprehensive treatment plan that works in harmony with the system.
In conventional treatment, use of stimulant laxatives to relieve constipation as a result of piles may cause side effects like abdominal cramps, bloating, rectal irritation, weakness and, pain.

Homeopathy takes a Holistic Approach to Treat Piles

Homeopathy aims to treat the problem internally, by understanding the cause of different symptoms instead of suppressing them. OTC drugs, ointments and other symptom-relieving options only provide temporary relief. Out of ten people, at least one person is recommended for a piles-related surgery. This invasive treatment has a host of complications, like difficulty passing stools and urinary tract infections post-surgery. Surgeries like hemorrhoid stapling may cause complications like rectal prolapse (part of the rectum pushes out of the anus) and hemorrhoid recurrence.

Homeopathy offers Individual Treatment

Homeopathy works by analyzing the individual symptoms of the disease in a person. There is no blanket treatment provided for a particular illness since every individual is treated according to their specific symptoms.
For example, for a person dealing with piles with painful defecation, the homeopathic medicine Muriatic Acid is prescribed. In case a person suffering from piles complains of bleeding along with stools, the homeopathic medicine Hamamelis Virginiana is prescribed.

Homeopathic Remedies for Piles are Simple and Effective

A single dose of the correct homeopathic medicine can help relieve the symptoms and also treat piles to a large degree. By restoring the internal processes of the body, homeopathic medications help address the condition naturally and effectively. Invasive procedures like surgery can be held-off with the help of homeopathic treatment.

Homeopathic Medicines are Safe

Homeopathic medicines for piles treat the problem by reducing the engorgement of blood in the rectal veins as well as improving blood circulation. Unlike conventional drugs for piles that are usually not recommended to be taken for more than seven days in a row, homeopathic medicines are taken in small doses over a continuous period. This helps improve the efficacy of the natural substances in the medicines, which in turn thereby helping reduce the severity of the symptoms and treats the problem on a long-term basis.

The Different Types of Piles

Piles are of different types, classified according to their location and whether they bleed or not. External piles, internal piles, protruding/prolapsed piles and blind piles are the most common types.

External piles are present on the skin around the anus and can be seen or felt from the outside. The main symptoms of external piles include painful swelling and hard lumps around the anus. If these hemorrhoids get irritated, they may cause itching or bleeding.

Internal piles lie deep inside the rectum and cannot be felt or seen from the outside. They are mostly painless since there are no pain receptors in the region where they tend to appear. The only symptom of internal piles is bleeding through the anus while straining during a motion of the stools.

Protruding or prolapsed piles are hemorrhoids that get pushed out towards the anus when a strain is applied to pass stools. They look like pink, moist pads of skin. Prolapsed or protruding hemorrhoids tend to hurt since the anus area is dense with pain-sensitive nerves. The typical symptoms of hemorrhoids are mucus discharge, itching, and pain.

Blind Piles are those hemorrhoids that do not bleed. They feel like protruding masses, usually detectable after passing stools, at the opening of the anus.

The Different Grades of Piles according to Severity

Piles can also be classified into grades, according to their severity.
Grade 1 piles are small inflammations that are usually found inside the lining of the anus and are not visible.

Grade 2 piles are larger than the grade 1 piles, but they too remain inside the anus. These protrude outside the anus while passing stools and go back into the rectum after defecation.

Grade 3 piles protrude during defecation and need to be manually pushed back inside the anus.

Grade 4 piles are a severe case. These cannot be pushed back inside and need immediate medical attention.

Causes and Risk Factors of Piles

Primarily, the swollen veins that are seen in piles develop due to increased pressure in the rectum. This pressure may cause disintegration of the tissues supporting the anal walls, leading to hemorrhoids.
Various factors contribute to causing this kind of pressure:

Irregular Bowel Movements

Factors like constipation, straining to pass stools, overuse of edemas or laxatives, chronic diarrhea, spending too much time on the toilet add to the strain on the rectum and anus, leading to the development of piles.

Diet

Lack of a fiber-rich diet, low water intake, excessive intake of alcohol, consumption of over-spicy food and junk food also contribute towards this condition.

Pregnancy

There is increased pressure on the abdomen and pelvic area during pregnancy, which is a leading cause of piles during pregnancy. In some cases, hemorrhoids develop as a result of childbirth due to the excessive pressure on the rectum and anus.

Age and Heredity

Other factors like age and heredity can contribute towards the development of piles due to the weakening of the tissues supporting the rectum and anus.

Portal Hypertension

Portal hypertension refers to a condition where there is an increase in the blood pressure within the veins of the portal venous system. The veins coming from the spleen, stomach, pancreas, and intestines merge into the portal vein, which travels through the liver. In case of any complication due to which blood cannot flow properly through the liver, a high pressure develops in the portal system. This pressure can cause the development of large, swollen veins in the stomach, esophagus, and rectum. As a result, hemorrhoids may develop in the anal area.

Symptoms of Piles 

Pain in the rectal region is one of the first signs of piles. Pain experienced while passing stools, painful lumps in or around the anal area, swelling and blood in the stools are the most common symptoms of piles.
A small mass of skin may protrude out of the anus upon defecation. The area around the anus may feel sore, red and itchy. In some cases, a feeling of fullness may remain, despite having passed stools. Larger piles can cause discomfort in the form of pain, itching, and mucus discharge.

All these symptoms need a clinical diagnosis to rule out the presence of any other rectal problems. A visual rectal examination, anoscopy, and colonoscopy may be required.

Piles or hemorrhoids can sometimes lead to further complication escalate into a more severe condition. These include excessive anal bleeding that may lead to anemia, incontinence, anal fistulas, and infections or clots within the hemorrhoids.

Managing Piles in Everyday Life

Foods that Help Treat Piles

High-fiber foods like figs, flaxseeds, quinoa, beans, lentils and fresh fruits and vegetables help keep the system healthy and aid in maintaining proper bowel movements. Fresh plant-based food eaten with the skin intact provides a decent amount of fiber. Some also contain a lot of water; watermelons, celery, and cucumbers are made up of almost 90% water. The aim is to ensure that the stools do not become hard and constipation is avoided.
Clinical research shows that in case of non-prolapsing hemorrhoids, taking a fiber supplement helped reduce the risk of persisting symptoms and bleeding by almost 50%.

Foods to Avoid During Piles

Foods with little or no fiber can cause constipation, or worsen the condition, indirectly leading to hemorrhoids. Foods like milk, cheese, and other dairy products should be avoided, as should meat, processed and frozen food. Alcohol, caffeine, excessive salt and spicy food can also worsen the condition. Certain supplements like Iron can lead to digestive problems and should only be taken on the recommendation of a doctor.

Staying Hydrated to Prevent Dehydration

Dehydration leads to constipation because water is required for the fiber to be able to travel smoothly through the digestive tract. Dehydration and constipation can worsen the symptoms of hemorrhoids. Eating water-based fruits and ensuring an adequate amount of water intake are simple measures to prevent dehydration.

homeopathic piles exercisePracticing Healthy Toilet Habits

It is essential to understand that the toilet habits practiced on an everyday basis are directly linked to piles. Over-straining during defecation can increase the pressure on the hemorrhoids and worsen the condition. An urge to pass stool should not be ignored, since delaying it can cause the stool to harden.
Regular physical activity, consumption of adequate amounts of water and fiber and healthy toilet habits can help prevent constipation naturally, and stop the hemorrhoids from getting worse.
For those who like to sit and browse their phone on the toilet – prolonged sitting on the toilet causes unnecessary strain on the body and can make the condition worse.

It is important to clean up properly after defecation to prevent infections and worsening of the condition. Cleaning should be done gently, not roughly. A warm bath where the person sits in warm water for 10-15 minutes can help relieve itching, burning and aching, while also cleaning the area.

Apart from these, factors like obesity and chronic digestive issues also play an important role. Simple lifestyle modifications can help a lot, and regular exercise is key in weight management and maintaining a healthy bowel movement.

A holistic approach towards piles can help manage and treat the condition naturally. A homeopathic physician can identify the underlying causes of the symptoms of piles and help a person transition into natural, safe treatment options with adequate lifestyle changes to treat the problem.
