This condition is quite common during pregnancy and right after childbirth. Haemorrhoids form because of an increase of pressure in the veins of a person’s anus. This constant pressure makes the veins bulge and expand. When you sit for long periods of time, this makes haemorrhoids especially painful.
The most common cause of haemorrhoids is straining when trying to have a bowel movement. They may also come from anal infections and constipation. In some cases, other diseases may cause piles such as cirrhosis of the liver.
Almost certainly you have heard of the saying that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” If you are after some specific and natural ways for haemorrhoid treatment, then maybe you can give a couple of these suggestions a shot!
You should really make an effort to consume more fibre. Foods that you should try to include in your diet are raw vegetables, beans, whole-grain cereals and breads, and dried and raw fruits. Even if you think that ice cream is god’s gift to food, you should try hold of eating it as much as possible! Also try to hold off the soft drinks, red meat and white bread because all of these have very little fibre.
Are you drinking enough Water? Approx 8 – 10 glasses of water per day are sometimes the most effective treatment. Avoid alcohol and caffeine as much as possible as they often have a dehydration effect.
A few other Haemorrhoid treatments you may like to try are to try not scratching the area, wearing cotton undergarments and avoiding toilet tissue that has colours or perfumes. Another pile treatment that may you feel better is to take a sitz bath. Just sit in warm water for approximately 10-15 minutes. By taking a stool softener, you may help in the reduction of straining and constipation.
If you find that you are not responding to natural home remedies, check out a surgeon or gastroenterologist. They can do an infrared coagulation that is another treatment which is known to shrink internal haemorrhoids.
With any luck this will make sure you avoid the operating room! If you must go to the Operating Room then the surgeon may do a surgical haemorrhoidectomy or a rubber band ligation. Don’t worry though, this is only done on patients who have severe bleeding and will not respond to other therapy.
