According to Ayurveda, the root or underlying cause of piles(hemorrhoids)is a result of an imbalance of Vata or air. This vitiation has several causes due to lifestyle habits and individual traits such as irregular eating and sleeping patterns, long periods of sitting, pregnancy and/or obesity, constipation, overindulgence in intercourse, suppressing natural urges, lack of exercise, excessive physical strain, consuming acidic, non-vegetarian food, alcohol, cold, heavy, uncooked or spicy foods, stress, and anxiety. Gomutra is key in treating dosha imbalances, reducing swelling and inflammation, regulating digestion, and ridding the body of toxins while relieving stress.
Ayurvedic Piles Treatment
Triphala is one of the ayurvedic Piles treatment. It literally means “three fruits,” which are harad, amla, and baheda. This combination is an excellent remedy for piles as it naturally balances the three doshas. Amla is responsible for regulating pitta or controlling acidity while containing the highest amount of vitamin C out of all fruits. Vitamin C is an antioxidant responsible for eliminating free radicals and detoxifying the body. Baheda is used to treat piles, loss of appetite, gas, and bloating and pacifies all three doshas, particularly Kapha which helps eliminate mucus and constipation.
Harad is well known to treat piles by regulating digestion and preventing constipation which are the leading causes of piles. Finally, Kalmi Shora is used to shrink the piles.
