Facts and Myths about Piles

Do you suffer from this condition called haemorrhoid (popularly known as piles)? If yes, then you are not alone. There are millions of people around the world who suffer from this painful condition. Many people have this misconception that leading a sedentary lifestyle or eating spicy food causes piles. While these are contributing factors to piles but the development of piles is not that simple.  While there is ayurvedic treatment available for piles, you will also get over-the-counter medication for it. Here we have dispelled a few common misconception regarding piles:

Myth 1.  All of us have Haemorrhoids

This is completely wrong. We all have veins in our rectum. The swelling or inflammation of these veins causes piles. This is a condition that calls for immediate treatment. Many do not seek treatment for piles due to embarrassment. You can also seek Ayurvedic treatment for piles.

Myth 2. Haemorrhoids are permanent

Like many other heath issues, haemorrhoids or piles can also be treated. These are not permanent. Since piles are nothing but the swollen veins in your rectum, the swelling or inflammation goes away with proper treatment. There are plenty of ayurvedic treatments for piles that can solve your problem over time. Ayurvedic medicines and treatment methods do not have any side effects and are very effective.

Myth 3. This condition is only a concern of the older adults

When it comes to piles, age is not a factor. It can affect both young and old. It’s true that as you age your risk of developing piles too increases. This is mainly because with age your supporting tissues get weaker and that’s the reason piles is common in older people. However, excessive straining during bowel movement, chronic constipation, and diarrhoea can cause piles in both young and old.

Myth 4. Spicy food causes piles

That’s false. There is no such evidence that hot and spicy food causes piles. However, this can be a contributing factor. When you eat hot and spicy food, your stomach gets upset causing discomfort in passing stool (either causing constipation or diarrhoea). This can result in aggravating haemorrhoids.

Myth 5. Piles can result in colon cancer

Often the symptoms of Bowel cancer are mistaken with piles making people think that piles cause cancer (which is false). Piles and Bowel Cancer has similar symptoms such as rectal bleeding. Piles go away with changes in your lifestyle and diet and don’t cause any serious problem. Consult a doctor immediately if your symptoms won’t go away.

Myth 6. Only unhealthy people get piles

This is false. Although the development of piles depends on a lot on your diet but a lot of healthy people can also get piles.

Myth 7. Piles cannot be cured

Your doctor can determine the best course of treatment, but piles usually go away with medication. People often resort to ayurvedic treatment for curing piles. However, for severe cases, refer to a specialist.

Hope these facts have helped cleared the misconception regarding piles.
