How to cure Hemorrhoids or Piles with Ayurveda?

Piles otherwise known as hemorrhoids refer to a condition while your veins enlarge in your rectum and make your lower rectum swollen and inflamed. This might be due to the pressure of internal or external veins around the anal canal. In Ayurveda, hemorrhoids are called as Arsha Shoola, which literally means “like needle pricking pain.”

One could experience piles, internally or externally. Internal ones cannot be seen, while the external ones are. Apart from making a person embarrassed, it is also a serious health hazard. Below are Ayurvedic tips that you can practice from home to keep yourself away from the trouble of piles.

1. Watch what you eat

Do not go in for foods that will make your digestive process strenuous. When digestion becomes complex, piles forms an increased pressure on your rectum. So keep your food light and healthy so that your intestines do not have to put in all the hard work to assimilate and digest the food.

2. Get up and get going

If you are suffering from piles, exercising must be your first go-to; however laid back you might feel. Sitting like a couch potato without any physical rigor will worsen the condition. No matter how healthy or fibrous your food is, get up and get running or walking.

3. Depend on natural probiotics

Probiotics are the gurus of digestion. When you introduce probiotics into your digestive tracts through natural sources of foods, it will do a lot good to your intestinal health. Probiotics are available aplenty in fermented foods like curds and idli, dosa batter. These probiotics will kind of balance the ratio between digestive enzymes and healthy bacteria which will facilitate easy digestion.

4. Figs can do it all

Among dry fruits, prefer figs if you suffer from constipation and piles. Figs have a lot of fiber content in it and can ease your digestion seamlessly. You can either snack on them as such or soak them in warm water the previous night and gulp both the figs and the water down the next morning on an empty stomach.

5. Flax seeds have the secret

Foods like flax seeds are the ones you can depend on generously. Be it any salad or main course, garnish your food with flax seeds or stir in some flax powder. You can mix them with your smoothies and pastries too. Flax seeds have a lot of nutritional value, especially in terms of fiber and will come handy for people suffering with piles.

6. The fruits saga
