What Is Piles And Ayurvedic Treatment For Piles?

Hemorrhoids, which are also referred to as piles, are swollen veins in the anus and lower rectum, which are similar to varicose veins. Hemorrhoids may develop inside the rectum (also known as internal hemorrhoids) or even under the skin around the anus (also known as external hemorrhoids).

What Are The Symptoms And Early Signs Of Piles?

Often, the symptoms of piles are not that serious. They normally get better on their own within a few days.

An individual with piles is likely to experience the following symptoms:

  • A hard and often painful lump is felt around the anus. It may or may not contain coagulated blood.
  • After passing a stool, a person with piles may experience full bowels
  • Bright red blood can be seen after a bowel movement
  • The area surrounding the anus may be itchy, red, or sore
  • Pain occurs while passing stool

Piles might even escalate into a more severe condition. Some of the symptoms seen are:

  • excessive anal bleeding leading to anemia
  • infection
  • an inability to control bowel movements
  • anal fistula
  • strangulated hemorrhoid, in which the blood supply to the hemorrhoid is cut off which causes complications including infection or a blood clot

Additionally, you can take Ayurvedic medicine for hemorrhoids as it is natural and does not cause any side effects.

Note - At Arogyadham, you can take Ayurvedic treatment for hemorrhoids from the qualified doctors.

What are the different types of hemorrhoids?

Internal hemorrhoids

Internal hemorrhoids are located in the rectum. They can not be seen as they're too deep in your anus to be visible. They aren't normally serious and often go away on their own.

There are no nerves that detect pain in the rectum, so you may not always notice internal hemorrhoids. However, they can cause the following symptoms if they grow larger:

  • pain or discomfort
  • itching
  • burning
  • noticeable lumps or swelling near your anus


A prolapsed hemorrhoid occurs when internal hemorrhoids swell and stick out of the anus. A doctor may put a grade to a prolapsed hemorrhoid depending on how much it sticks out:

  • Grade one: Not prolapsed at all
  • Grade two: Prolapsed, however, will retract on their own. This prolapse only when you put pressure on your anal or rectal area, such as by straining when you have a bowel movement, and then return to their normal position afterward
  • Grade three: Prolapsed, and you need to push it back in
  • Grade four: Prolapsed, and you can not push it back

Prolapsed hemorrhoids seem like swollen red lumps or bumps outside your anus.

In some cases, you may need surgical treatment to remove or correct a prolapsed hemorrhoid so that they don't cause any pain or complications.

External hemorrhoids

External hemorrhoids occur on the anus, directly on the surface of where bowel movements occur. They're not visible constantly but are sometimes seen as lumps on the anal surface.

Thrombosed hemorrhoid

A thrombosed hemorrhoid contains a blood clot in the hemorrhoid tissue. They might even appear as lumps or swelling around the anus.

Blood clots may occur in both internal and external hemorrhoids. The symptoms include:

  • intense pain and itchiness
  • swelling and redness
  • bluish color around the hemorrhoid

What are the different types of hemorrhoids?

The veins around your anus might stretch under pressure and might even bulge or swell. Hemorrhoids can develop from increased pressure in the lower rectum because of:

  • Strain during bowel movements
  • Sitting for long periods on the toilet seat
  • Having diarrhea or constipation
  • Being obese
  • Being pregnant
  • Having anal intercourse
  • Eating a low-fiber diet
  • Regular heavy lifting

How Arogyadham Doctors Treat Piles?

It can be treated by specialized proper diet and lifestyle habits and by herbal formulations such as:

  • Sanssurea Lappa
  • Witheme sommifera
  • Piper Longum
  • Bauhinia Variegata

The ayurvedic practitioner evaluates the overall health of an individual to determine the dominant dosha before making suggestions.

If you're experiencing hemorrhoids and want to take an Ayurvedic approach to treatment, your options are the following:


Most minor hemorrhoids can be treated with medication. No other methods are needed except if the hemorrhoids are more severe. In worse case scenarios, medications may be used in addition to procedures.

Herbal application

Herbal medicines are a caustic, alkaline paste used to manage hemorrhoids. The paste is made of an herbal mix. Kshara is applied to hemorrhoids using a specialized device called a slit proctoscope. In Ayurvedic medicine, this method is considered as the best approach for treating hemorrhoids.

Depending on the dosha, one will be advised to take specific medications to balance the body as one recovers. One may need to make dietary or lifestyle adjustments to support healing.
