Ayurveda, the medical science with aholistic approach is native to India. Since ancient times Ayurveda has been promoting good health along with the diagnosis and treatment of many complex diseases.Even for piles, which is the commonest health disorder nowadays, people prefer to see an ayurvedic proctologist, rather than consulting an allopathic surgeon. The most opined reasons for such decisions are the simplistic approach of Ayurveda and to stay far away from the hassles and side-effects of synthetic medicines.
Piles are majorly caused due to unhealthy food habits and improper lifestyle that includes unnatural sex, giving birth or even delay to answer the nature’s call. It brings forth symptoms like tremendous pain while excretion, itching around the anal opening, pea-sized lumps around or in the anal canal, or splatter of blood before, after or during defecation.
The Ayurvedic treatment of Piles involves proper diet, exercises, and herbal medications. Traditional ayurvedic scriptures also mention surgical procedures like Kshara Sutra, but that is for treating extreme piles.
In case of dietary changes completely avoidingspicy, and processed food is necessary. Eating whole grain foods, fruits, and other highly fibrous items is extremely helpful as they improve digestion and also softens the stool so that it can pass away easily without causing much pain and discomfort to the patient.
As of changes that are to be brought in daily living, one must drink enough water to keep themselves hydrated, other than that one must not delay the natural urge of excretion, and one must also include daily exercisesor yoga to not only keep themselves fit but also to improve their digestive system. Yoga poses like Sarvanga asana, Pawan Mukta asana, Halasana, etc. are helpful for both prevention and cure of Piles.
Piles are highly accompanied by discomfort and embarrassment, but the lucidity of Ayurveda is such, that certain treatments associated with it can be carried out in the home itself. It mainly involves the use of various kitchen ingredients for ingestion and application. For instance, here are some home remedies of Piles:
For extreme piles,the parasurgical procedure of Kshara Sutra is carried out. In this ayurvedic medications are smeared on a thread which is then tied to the piles. The procedure is repeated after every seven days, and gradually the piles get detached and the open wound gets healed.
Other than these treatments, a number of ayurvedic institutions have brought forward many medications to completely treat piles. One such popular institution is of Balaji Ayurveda that has launched its own range of products for the treatment of piles. Arsh Har capsules and ointment for piles have provided great relief to the victims of haemorrhoids.
Thus, the popularity of Ayurveda for piles treatment lies in its simplicity, effectiveness, and assurance to be free from surgical complications.
