Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why Should I choose Homeopathic Medicine for Piles?

I would say that the biggest reason for you to choose homeopathic medicine for piles should be the permanency and safety of the treatment. Once treated with homeopathy, piles tend to not to recur ( under conditions where lifestyle modifications are sustained for long) . Homeopathic medicines are very safe and side effects with homeopathy while treating piles are unheard of .

2. What are Piles/ hemorrhoids ?

The term hemorrhoids or piles refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus or lower rectum are swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids are very common in both men and women. About half of the population has hemorrhoids by age 50. Hemorrhoids may result from straining to move stool. Other contributing factors include pregnancy, ageing, chronic constipation or diarrhoea. Hemorrhoids are either inside the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external). Although many people have hemorrhoids, not all experience symptoms. The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bright red blood covering the stool, or in the toilet bowl. However, an internal hemorrhoid may protrude through the anus outside the body, becoming irritating and painful.

Symptoms of external hemorrhoids may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus. In addition, excessive straining, rubbing, or cleaning around the anus may cause irritation with bleeding and/or itching, which may produce a vicious cycle of symptoms.

3. Why do I have Piles?

There are various factors that predispose a person to develop piles include diet with less fiber content, lack of exercise, sedentary habits like prolonged sitting , increased straining during defecation, chronic constipation or diarrhoea, excessive alcohol intake, pregnancy, obesity . Genetic Factors also play a strong role in the development of piles.

4. What are the Types and Symptoms of Piles?

  1. External Piles: External piles are present on skin around anus and can be seen or felt from outside. The main symptom are  Pain, swelling/lump around anus. Itching and bleeding may appear when they are irritated.
  2. Internal Piles: Internal piles lie deep inside the rectum and cannot be felt or seen from outside. They are painless owing to lack of pain receptors in the area in which they appear. The only symptom they cause is bleeding per anus while straining at stool.
  3. Protruding/Prolapsed piles:  piles that while straining at stool are pushed on the anal verge are referred to as protruding/prolapsed piles. They lead to symptoms of pain, itching, and mucus discharge.
  4. Blind Piles: Non-bleeding piles are referred to as blind piles.


5. What can I do to Prevent Piles?

Some simple lifestyle modifications can help one, prevent and even cure piles. A softer stool and regular bowel movements are its primary goals. A softer stool makes emptying the bowels easier and lessens the pressure on hemorrhoids caused by straining.

  • Warm Baths- bathing the perianal area in warm water can ease out the acute pain in a significant manner . This possibly relaxes the anal sphincter and gives relief from the pain.Increasing fluid intake- Increasing fluid intake can help in reducing the hardness of the stools. Drinking six to eight glasses of fluid (not alcohol) results in softer, bulkier stools.
  • High-fiber diet  – Good sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Also, a fiber supplement such as psyllium can be very helpful.
  • Do not hold the urge   – Prevent holding the call, as it can lead to irregular bowel movement and also hardening of the stools.
  • Regular exercise          –   Regular exercise, including walking, can be very useful in regulating your digestive system.

A Case Study- Homeopathic Treatment of Piles

For Vikram (not his real name), pain around the anus was becoming a big problem This excruciating pain would continue for hours after passing stool. He was also passing blood along with stool. Vikram at times was having difficulty in concentrating at his job, as the pain would go on for hours and an uncomforting feeling was always there. Each morning, passing stool was like a nightmare, and if he had to go twice, then nearly the whole day would pass in pain. He knew that this surely had something to do with his constipation problem, which he was having for the last decade or so. A visit to the general practitioner confirmed that he was suffering from piles (also known as hemorrhoids). He was suggested surgery . One of Vikram’s friend suggested that he should first try homeopathy as it had really helped him in treating his piles . Vikram was put on Ratanhia and later was given aesculus . Theses were the only two Homeopathic remedies for hemorrhoids that were used on him. He completely recovered in four months and it has been nearly four years that he has been completely symptom free. Vikram has also made changes to his lifestyle . He walks everyday for 1 hour and drinks lots of water.

    Hello Doctor. What is the dosage for Ratanhia?

  4. I have suffering piles more than 10 years and treatment bu Homiopathy but not cure yet

  5. Dr R.K.Singh says:

    Dear Dr Sharma,
    I have painless bleeding piles (external, as a surgeon recently told me after examination) for the past 7/8 yrs. Initially I had good relief by taking Phosphorus 200. I was also prescribed Calc Fluor by our institute’s visiting homeopath to manage backache .
    When it stopped working, I was prescribed Acid Nitricum 1 M and Hemamilis Q, which worked well for stopping the anal bleeding instantly for over two years. Till recently I took the two medicines and controlled the ailment. But these did not stop constipation which invariably preceded anal bleeding. And, when the troubled recurred frequently and these medicines did not prevent bleeding quickly,as in the past, i saw the institute’s allopath doctor who prescribed Dobesil 500 and Thank OD which stopped bleeding and enabled smooth defecation for a while . The relief was there but again after a month painless bleeding started. There was constipation and severe backache too, as usual.
    I was away to Kerala andwhen the problem recurred I saw a homepath there, who, after recording my history, prescribed afresh Phosphorus 30 (one hourly in water) for a day, Sulphur 200 (5 drops in water)in the morning, Nux Vom 200 (5 drops in water) in the evening), and Ratanhia Q (15 drops in water after lunch and dinner). I have been taking these for the last one week. There is no anal bleeding now, and improvement in constipation too.
    However, for the last two days again there has been acute gas formation– gas rises to the head but after a blurp or two, it becomes better. The constipation and backache too has set in. What should I do?

    How long should I take Nux Vom, Sulph, and Ratanhia? Would you suggest some change in the medicines so that my relief is fast and lasting? Lack of smooth motion and sleeplessness (despite taking the allopathic Trika .5 each night) are my other chronic problems. I am now 68 and retired Professor & Head at a major IIT.
