Yoga and Naturopathy for Piles

Piles are inflamed and swollen collections of tissue that develop in the anal area. It is also called hemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids are usually caused by straining during bowel movements, obesity or pregnancy. Low fiber diet and smaller caliber stool causes a person to strain when having a bowel movement, increasing the pressure within the blood vessels. Pregnancy is associated with hemorrhoid swelling and is likely due to increased pressure of the enlarged uterus on the rectum and anus. Other causes of piles include chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea, lifting heavy weights etc. The size of piles can vary. Discomfort is a common symptom, especially during bowel movements or when sitting. Other symptoms include itching and bleeding. A high-fibre diet can be effective, along with stool softeners. In some cases, a medical procedure to remove the haemorrhoid may be needed to provide relief.
