Piles Hemorrhoids Homeopathic treatment

An embarrassing condition that makes sitting uncomfortable, Hemorrhoids also known as Piles is an extremely common ailment that people suffer from these days. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum or anus, an opening through which stool passes.

Piles patients mostly suffer silently with their complaints due to shyness to explain or show the thing to the doctor. They bear the pain and complaints as far as possible and go for treatment only in unbearable conditions, which usually leads them directly to the surgeon's table. Every complaint should be treated then and there, for easy cure and to avoid progress of the disease into complications.

Piles (Haemorrhoids) are swollen and inflamed blood vessels (veins) in the rectum and anus.

Homeopathy is an amazing alternative to above-mentioned allopathy or conventional medicinal or surgical treatments available . The best part is homeopathic remedies correct the basic cause of piles or hemorrhoids that is basically hepato portal hypertension.

Hepato portal circulation is the network blood vessels supplying the liver and the intestines. When there is congestion in the liver, blood pressure in hepato portal circulation rises giving rise to hepato portal hypertension. This leads to swelling of blood vessels in the region of rectum and anus called piles or hemorrhoids. The swelling occurs in this region because this is the area of anastomosis or joint and is therefore weak. When the pressure rises too much the blood vessels may break leading to bleeding or hemorrhage.

Why go for surgery which is a complicated procedure disturbing physical, mental, emotional and economical planes when there is simple, gentle and permanent option in the form of homeopathy.

It is in your best interest to first try homeopathy as we see a large percentage of patients benefitting from the treatment prescribed. Surgery can always be the last resort; however reoccurrence of hemorrhoids after surgery is a common occurrence.

Piles(Hemorrhoids) are broadly classified as follows:


1)Internal Hemorrhoids occur higher up in the anal canal and are not noticeable to the eye until they droop. They are graded according to their position. Bleeding is the only symptom of internal hemorrhoids.

  • First-degree or grade 1 piles are small swellings on the inside lining of the anal canal. They cannot be seen or felt from outside the anus.
  • Second-degree or grade 2 piles are larger and suspend from the anus during a bowel movement, but return inside afterwards by themselves.
  • Third-degree or grade 3 piles are similar to grade 2 but exit inside only when pushed back with a finger.
  • Fourth-degree or grade 4 piles permanently suspend from the anus and cannot be forced back inside.

Type of haremorrhoids


2)External Hemorrhoids is a small lump that develops on the outside edge of the anus. They are less common than internal hemorrhoids.

 3) Prolapsed hemorrhoids –Internal hemorrhoids that are much distended and pushed outside anus.

 4) Strangulated hemorrhoids –If anal sphincter muscle goes into spasm and traps a prolapsed hemorrhoid outside the anal opening and supply of blood is cut.              

Anal architecture

Anal architecture is designed in such a manner to control even the release of air (flatus) and watery stools i.e., airtight and leak-proof. It is well-formed with internal sphincter and external sphincter muscles. Anal canal is anatomically divided into two parts (namely upper part and lower part) by Hilton’s line (bluish pink ring). This upper anal part originates from the endoderm and is covered with mucous membranes. The nerve supply of the upper part is supplied from the autonomic nervous system which doesn’t have any pain sensitive nerve fibres. The lower part of the anal canal originates from ectoderm and is covered by skin. Unlike the upper part, it is supplied by spinal nerves which have pain sensitive nerve fibres. The blood supply to upper part of the anus is supplied by superior haemorrhoidal plexus and the lower part is supplied with inferior haemorrhoidal plexus. The occurrence of swelling/varicosity in the anus (piles) is more common in 3 O’, 7 O’ & 11 O’ clock position of anus which are all supposed to be weak points of the anus.

Homoeopathic Treatment:

Piles Homeopathic treatment
Piles usually tend to get worse over time and become more persistent. “Best of all the medicines” is rest, water and diet without which no treatment will be helpful. Treatment of piles often has hindrances since it is often exposed to irritants or frictions of stool. Usually, external treatment such as pain relieving creams and ointments containing anaesthetic agents and moisturisers can help only to pacify the discomfort, but it has very little or no value in treatment of piles. This way of localised approach or treatment will usually suppress/mask the complaint for the time being only. Also, one should be aware of recurrence of piles even after surgical intervention. This confirms that the cause is not localised and it is the effect of internal circulatory or other systemic diseases. So the suppression of the piles mass will leave the internal disease untreated. So this will usually lead to serious progressive internal diseases, since piles occured as an outlet, to avoid the internal burst.
