Homeopathic treatment for hemorrhoids

Published at : 21-08-2019 View : 6928

  Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum that may be the result of straining during bowel movements or from the increased pressure on these veins during pregnancy or delivery, or from lifting heavy objects. There is a large hereditary component to hemorrhoids, and people who have hemorrhoids are also more likely to suffer from varicose veins.

Types of Hemorrhoids

  Internal hemorrhoids are found in your rectum. They can’t always be seen because they’re too deep in your anus to be visible. Internal hemorrhoids aren’t normally serious and tend to go away on their own. Sometimes internal hemorrhoids can swell and stick out of your anus. This is known as a prolapsed hemorrhoid. There aren’t any nerves that detect pain in your rectum, so you may not always notice internal hemorrhoids.

  External hemorrhoids occur on your anus, directly on the surface of where your bowel movements come out. They’re not always visible but are sometimes seen as lumps on the anal surface. External hemorrhoids aren’t usually a serious medical issue. But see our doctor if they cause pain or discomfort that interrupts your daily life. They’re also easier to see when they swell, and the bluish color of the dilated veins is visible beneath the anal skin surface.

  Thrombosed hemorrhoids contains a blood clot (thrombosis) within the hemorrhoid tissue. They may appear as lumps or swelling around your anus. Thrombosed hemorrhoids are essentially a complication of hemorrhoid, in which a blood clot forms.

 

 

Causes of Hemorrhoids

  Hemorrhoids are caused by swelling in the anal or rectal veins, this makes them susceptible to irritation. Enlargement of the veins around the anus causes hemorrhoids.

The causes of hemorrhoids include:

  Pregnancy: Pregnant women can get hemorrhoids during the last 6 months of pregnancy. This is because of increased pressure on the blood vessels in the pelvic area. Straining to push the baby out during labor can make hemorrhoids worse.

  Aging: Hemorrhoids are most common among adults aged 45 to 65 years. This does not mean, however, that young people and children do not get them.

  Diarrhea: Hemorrhoids can occur after cases of chronic diarrhea.

  Chronic constipation: Straining to move stool puts additional pressure on the walls of the blood vessels.

  Sitting for too long: Staying in a seated position for long periods can cause hemorrhoids, especially on the toilet.

  Heavy lifting: Repeatedly lifting heavy objects can lead to hemorrhoids.

  Anal intercourse: This can cause new hemorrhoids or worsen existing ones.

  Obesity: Diet-related obesity can cause hemorrhoids.

  Genetics: Some people inherit a tendency to develop hemorrhoids.

Risk Factors of Hemorrhoids

  Some of the above factors can also make it difficult for hemorrhoids to heal, allowing the problem to persist for longer. Hemorrhoids can be passed on genetically from parent to child, so if your parents had hemorrhoids, you’re more likely to get them.

  Risk factors for severe or recurrent hemorrhoids include:

   Not getting enough fiber

   Being overweight or obese

   Being pregnant

   Having chronic constipation

   Having chronic diarrhea

   Aging muscles

   Sitting on the toilet for too long

   Straining while having a bowel movement

   Having anal intercourse
