Homeopathic Medicines for Hemorrhoids or Piles


Homeopathic Medicines for Hemorrhoids or Piles

Homeopathy provides rapid relief for the pain and discomfort of hemorrhoids. As always, the correct prescription is based on what is most unique about each case. Each of the following cases was treated acutely. Hemorrhoids may need to be be treated constitutionally if the condition persists or the acute flareups are recurrent.

Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum that may be the result of straining during bowel movements or from the increased pressure on these veins during pregnancy or delivery, or from lifting heavy objects. There is a large hereditary component to hemorrhoids, and people who have hemorrhoids are also more likely to suffer from varicose veins.

Some of the symptoms when hemorrhoids act up include itching, burning – and in some cases bleeding. The itching and the pain can at times be almost unbearable – making any activity unpleasant in the extreme.

When we talk of piles treatment in Homeopathy, the biggest advantage is that it is a non surgical option and that too a very successful one. There is no fun getting a surgery done when the chances of recurrence remain pretty high. When you compare this to the Homeopathic treatment for piles, Homeopathy offers a much better alternative to the surgical treatment of hemorrhoids or piles. This is because of three reasons which I have seen hundreds of times in my practice. One is that homeopathy cures the problem permanently. Secondly there is no recurrence of the problem. Third reason is that the homeopathic treatment for piles is much easier to have when compared to getting a surgery done. Homeopathic medicines like Aesculus Hippocastinum, Aloes, Ratanhia, Nitric Acid, Hamamelis, Collinsonia and Graphites are very helpful in the treatment of hemorrhoids or piles.

The good news is homeopathy can help bring rapid relief – doing so safely and gently. If you find yourself with this unpleasant and often painful problem – here are some homeopathic remedies to consider:
