Ayurvedic Treatment For Piles

Suffering for hemorrhoid (also commonly known as piles) is not a laughing matter. If left ignored, your piles can develop into something serious and painful to bear. Ever heard treatments involving Ayurvedic natural remedies? Read on if Ayurvedic treatment for your piles is right for you.

In Ayurvedic terms, piles are known as ArshaShoola, literally meant ‘feeling of pain like pricking with needles’. This sound like a joke but again, it’s not a laughing matter. Piles are such a pain yet because of feeling of embarrassment over-weighs the pain; we tend to keep the agony shut.

Piles happen when both internal and external veins in the anal area becomes expand (or medically called as varicose), protruding from the rectum.

There are many causes why piles can happen to you.

Genetics, constipation, dietary habits (particularly lack in fiber), pregnancy, and anatomical factors (where the veins responsible are unable to work as they should be) are the notable causes. These are the most likely the reasons behind your piles.

In Ayurvedic terms, diagnosis of piles is different. It depends on any of three doshas (made up from five different elements: air, water, fire, earth, and space). Any imbalance on a person’s doshas is thought to make you suffer from illness.[list style=”arrow”]
