Piles or Haemorrhoids are among the most common ailments today, especially in the Western world. They are varicose and often inflamed condition of the veins inside or just outside the rectum. In external piles, there is a lot of pain but not much bleeding. In the case of internal piles, there is discharge of dark blood.
Nearly 40 per cent of people suffer from piles at some stage of their lives.
Pain at passing stools, slight bleeding in the case of internal trouble, and a feeling of soreness and irritation after passing a stool are the usual symptoms of piles. The patient cannot sit comfortably due to itching, discomfort and pain in the rectal region. Certain complication may arise in case piles are untreated or if they are not treated properly. Profuse bleeding may lead to anemia, causing weakness, tiredness and lethargy. Sometimes piles which come out of the anal opening cannot go back due to spasm at the anal opening. This may lead to clotting of blood, giving rise to sudden swelling and pain. In advanced degree of piles, ulceration may develop due to friction, and cause bleeding.
The primary cause of piles is chronic constipation and other bowel disorders. The pressure applied to pass a stool to evacuate constipated bowels and the congestion caused by constipation ultimately lead to piles. The use of purgatives to relieve constipation, by their irritating and weakening effect on the lining of the rectum, also result in enlargement and inflammation of veins and bleeding of the mucous lining. Piles are more common during pregnancy and in condition affecting the liver and upper bowel.
There is no local treatment to cure piles. The treatment of the basic cause, namely, chronic constipation, is the only way to get rid of the trouble. To begin with, the whole digestive tract must be given a complete rest for a few days and the intestines throughly cleansed. For this purpose, the patient should adopt an all-fruit diet for at least five days. He should have three meals a day of fresh juicy fruits such as grapes, apple, pear, peach, orange, pineapple and melon. For drinks, unsweetened lemon water or plain water either hot or cold may be taken.
