What are Piles?

Piles, otherwise known as hemorrhoids, are enlarged, painful veins in the rectum. It refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus or lower rectum are swollen and inflamed. Piles arise from the increased pressure of internal or external veins around the anal canal. Piles are both internal and external. Internal hemorrhoids, unless they are severe, cannot be seen or felt. External hemorrhoids can be seen on the outside of the anus. Although uncomfortable and embarrassing, it is not normally a serious condition.

Common Causes of Piles

  • Low fiber diet

  • Pregnancy

  • Aging

  • Hereditary

  • Chronic constipation

  • Anal intercourse

Piles can be very well Treated With Homeopathy permanently, Just Avoid - Highly Spicy Food, Non Veg Food, Night Watching [Waking Late Night].

Actually we cannot get rid of piles permanently by maintaining the diet, we have to go for the treatment. Stopiles is the place where you can get the Best Piles Treatment in Hyderabad with out any pain.

i wish to share my experience on this forum. One of my colleague used to change his diet every summer. He said he has piles and every summer he switches from normal diet to curds with rice or curds with roti. Last year i used a lot of antiboitic cream for the itching in the anal area but i was not able to know what exactly was the problem itching was occurring repetitively. Later this year i felt that the anal muscles have swollen and passing stools was pain full. Immediately realizing through internet the symptoms of pile i have also changed my diet ever since i have added curds [yogurt] in my diet my life has almost got back to normal. However, i would be glad if any body would guide me to a permanent cure.
