Herbal Home Remedies for Piles - Ayurvedic Medicines-Natural Treatment
Causes and Symptoms
Piles or haemorrhoids, is a varicose and often inftamed condition of the veins about the lower end of the bowel. Haemorrhoids are either external, internal or mixed. In external piles there is not much bleeding but a lot of pain, whereas the internal piles consist in discharge of several ounces of dark blood.
Piles is not a disease in the strictest sense of the term but a symptom. Even modem medicine recognises this since its practitioners agree that it is caused primarily by constipation. The pressure applied in voiding aconstipated bowel tends to distend the veins and the external piles may be swollen causing pain making it difficult for the patient to sit. The piles become enlarged and red and give off a thin, blood-stained discharge.

Allopathy depends more on surgery than drugs in the case of intractable piles, but even removal of the offending part does not give relief since the disease is likely to .recur. Piles is one disease in which a lot of hullabaloo is created: you would come across a lot of nostrums and indigenous drugs to relieve the condition. Treatment
Treatment of piles must start with treatment of the basic cause and that is constipation. The use of violent and irritating purgatives, should be avoided and care must be taken to secure soft motions. The naturopathic way is to regulate the diet. The diet of a person suffering from piles-even though the goal is to relieve constipation-should be a little different from the one recommended for dealing with constipation. Some haemorrhoid patients become allergic to some foods even if they tend to relieve constipation. The best diet to secure a soft stool, the instrument of relieving constipated bowels, will comprise wheat porridge, whole meal (wheat flour without being passed through a sieve), green vegetables, particularly spinach, gourds of the various varieties, cabbage, radish, fruits like papaya, ripe banana, musk melon, apple, pear and milk Lentil and daals should be avoided since they tend to constipate the bowels. Dry fruits like coconuts, figs, raisins and currants ,are also recommended. The best regimen for the piles patient could be to breakfast on papaya, musk melon and milk. For lunch he should have porridge and leafy vegetables and his dinner should consist of (i) any vegetable and raisins; (ii) vegetables, figs and currants in addition to some bread; or (iii) fruits and coconut or cooked vegetables in medium quantities. Dry fruits like raisin, currants and figs could be taken up to 200 grammes at one time, but the best way is to soak them m about 400 mtllilitres of water and take them along with the water. Flesh of fresh coconut could be takenup to 125 grammes and dry coconut up to 75 grammes at one time.
The above regimen will give relief in a majority of the, eases, but in chronic or intractable cases where the patient passes dry, hard stool aggravating his condition flea seed (Isbagol) is recommended. Flea seed or its husk should be taken in small quantities of five to ten grammes. The best way is to soak it in water, 20 times its volume for 24 hours and take it before every meal. The quantity should be reduced when the condition improves.
Persons suffering from piles are generally' in the habit of taking less water than their bodies need. They must drink 2 to 3 litres of water in 24 hours. Mud treatment can also benefit the patient. Take I to 1 t kilogrammes of dry clay and knead it into soft dough like . consistency. Spread it like plaster from the navel to the pubes; a ball of clay should be kept on the rectum for half an hour. The mud treatment should best be taken one and a half to two hours before breakfast and repeated before dinner. After the mud is removed, a brisk walk for three to four kilometres is recommended.
If no relief is experienced from the treatment out lined above, the patient should take resort to fasting. Fasting should last from three to seven days, during which nothing but water should be taken. It would be difficult to do it in the beginning and the patient should try it for three days in the first instance. . Lukewarm water enema must be taken in the morning or evening during fasting. And a fasting patient should return to normal diet only gradually, starting with vegetable or fruit juices, going on to porridge and milk and then to regular food.
