Internal Hemorrhoids

Internal Hemorrhoids
By Josh Riverside

There are two kinds of hemorrhoids: internal and external. Internal hemorrhoids are those which can only be examined by a doctor. Internal hemorrhoids are caused when the tissue supporting the veins in the anal canal weakens, and the swollen veins and tissue can bulge into the anal canal. Symptoms of internal hemorrhoids include bleeding during or after bowel movements, itching or a burning sensation in the anus and rectal pain before, during or after bowel movements.

In summary, the symptoms of internal hemorrhoids include the following: Rectal bleeding. Like external hemorrhoids, bright red spots of blood may appear on toilet paper after a bowel movement. Unlike, external hemorrhoids, blood spots may appear on toilet paper if one wipes the anus before a bowel movement and in addition, blood may appear on individual pieces of stool. Because the bleeding takes place internally, small amounts of blood may leak from the anus even in the absence of a bowel movement and there is the possibility that the stool will pick up small amounts of blood on its way out of the large intestine.

An itching sensation inside the anal canal. This is a different form of itching commonly associated with hemorrhoids. Because these hemorrhoids are internal, they sometimes leak mucus as the body attempts to heal them. It is the leaking mucus which causes the itching sensation, not the small ruptures in the walls of the veins. Should this mucus leak through the anus, it may cause irritation on the outside of the body as well as the inside. A constant feeling of needing a bowel movement even after completing one. The reason you go to the bathroom is because you have the feeling in your anus that stool is ready to come out. This feeling is caused, in part, by the swelling of the anal cushions that help the stool emerge from the large intestine. If you have bulging internal hemorrhoids that intrude into the end portion of the large intestine, this will mimic the feeling of needing to eliminate and will not disappear. The larger the internal hemorrhoid, the more intense the feeling of needing to eliminate.

A painful feeling in the anal canal. In most cases, internal hemorrhoids are not painful. As described above, they exhibit other symptoms. However, if the hemorrhoids are large enough and begin to protrude through the anus, they can become quite painful if they are squeezed during bowel movements by the sphincter muscles in the anus during the course of elimination. If this pain should become unbearable, it may indicate that the blood supply to the hemorrhoid is being severely restricted by the sphincter muscles in which case the hemorrhoid is literally being strangled. Should this be the case, emergency treatment is highly recommended.

Hemorrhoids Treatment - The Natural Way

Hemorrhoids Treatment - The Natural Way
by Jim McDonald

Over 150 million of the living people in America today will experience some kind of hemorrhoids by the age of 50. Most will do nothing about it. Only 500,000 are expected to seek help this year. It is a crazy statistic, because for most people, hemorrhoids can be prevented and cured by making a few simple changes to lifestyle, diet and the use of an anti-inflammatory gel/cream.

There are 2 types of hemorrhoids, internal and external, both of which left unchecked can lead to more severe cases, and ultimately surgery. But that is if you do nothing about it. And there is not much to look forward to if you need surgery. Surgery is an excruciatingly painful experience, especially post-op. Many patients have reported days, if not weeks of pain during the healing period after surgery. You see the outer rectum is one of the most sensitive parts of the body, and the most prevalent surgeries involve burning off hemorrhoids, or banding (tying a band around the affected area until it drops off) which leaves the area extremely tender, and when the patient needs to have a bowel movement, the pain can be even more excruciating than the hemorrhoids ever were.

But that is what happens if you do NOT attend to your hemorrhoids early. And considering that one of the major causes of hemorrhoids is from straining during bowel movements due to poor diet/lifestyle, then there really is no reason that most sufferers can't avoid getting more/worse hemorrhoids. That is, most people strain during a bowel movement because the stool (feces) has become hard and requires a lot of pushing and straining. Simple changes to diet and lifestyle can improve regularity and reduce painful 'straining' bowel movements, and thus wipe-out the cause of hemorrhoids.

This is where the health of your colon kicks in. The colon (large intestine) can hold anywhere between 6-40lbs of fecal matter in the average adult. People who experience regular bowel movements (at least once daily), typically have a lot less of this fecal matter in their system, and quite obviously people who are less 'regular' have a lot more in their system. The colon, the last major part of the digestive system, actually draws a lot of water out of the fecal matter (stool) before it reaches the rectum. If the stool spends too much time in the colon, or if your diet is missing some key foods, then too much water is drawn out of the stool, and this is when you experience a hard bowel movement that requires straining and pushing....resulting in hemorrhoids.

There is much debate about what causes the stool to spend more time in the colon and thus become harder, but most agree that a clean and clear colon will assist in helping the stool to move freely and smoothly through the intestine. Couple this a diet rich in water and fiber (which assists in making the stool softer and easier to pass) and you're on the right path towards reducing the cause of hemorrhoids.

Exercise is another major factor in improving you inner health. Many experts believe that exercise assists in speeding up our metabolic rate which actually sees our digestive system work quick, thus resulting in 'regularity' and less fecal matter sitting virtually idle in the digestive system (colon).

So if you have a diet that incorporates a lot of fiber (wholemeal breads/cereal and fruits), you drink ample water (6-8 glasses daily) and you partake in regular exercise, then you could well be on your way towards improving your inner health, improving your bowel-movement regularity and reducing your hemorrhoids.

And for many people who are already 'dealing' with hemorrhoids, the use of an anti-inflammatory cream/gel can be the first step in helping to cure, and rid themselves of their hemorrhoids. Poor diet, laziness and lack of hydrating fluids are CAUSES of hemorrhoids, so making improvements in these areas will probably help to ease the current hemorrhoids, but will NOT FULLY CURE the sufferer. The use of an anti-inflammatory will assist here (in most cases) by soothing the affected area, and also helping with circulation in the rectum area. These products act as a kind of decongestant in the rectum by reducing the swelling, which naturally brings with it better blood circulation in the veins, which in turn helps to diminish the size and existence of the hemorrhoids.

Get Hemorrhoid Relief from Herbal Remedies

Get Hemorrhoid Relief from Herbal Remedies
By Rudy Silva

Here are four different herbs that can give you hemorrhoid relief and help to get rid of your hemorrhoids. Using these herbs is a convenient and cost effective way to treat your hemorrhoid symptoms.

Use these herbs just long enough to give you hemorrhoid relief. Once you see that your symptoms have disappeared, stop using these herbs. Using herbs longer than necessary will make you less sensitive to the power of these herbs, if you have to use them again.

Comfrey root powder

Comfrey powder comes from an herbal root that has plenty of allantoin. This herb is a powerful acting herb that is anti-inflammatory and stimulates the formation of new skin. It can also cause hemorrhoids that are outside on the anus to shrink and pull back. This makes comfrey powder an effective hemorrhoid remedy.

Here’s how to use it.

Buy the powder and not the liquid. Make a paste by mixing it with olive, fish, or flaxseed oil. Apply the paste directly onto your anus and surrounding area. You can apply it at night and your morning shower will remove it.

Fresh comfrey leaves or roots are the best to use. However, you can get precut and dried comfrey root and leaves from a health food or herb store. If you use the dried leaves, you can put them into a coffee grinder to create a powder. Use this powder to create a paste with oils.

Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola is an Indian herb that is a hemorrhoid remedy. Use an extract that has 70% triterpenic acid since this is the active ingredient.

Take 30 mg of Gotu Kola 3 time a day. Gotu kola extract reduces pain, swelling, fatigue, and sensation of heaviness from hemorrhoids.

Horse Chestnut

Horse chestnut comes from the bark of a tree and has been found to be useful in treating hemorrhoids. It contains the chemicals “aesculin” and “aescin”, which strengthen your blood vessels and which help to reduce hemorrhoids. It also helps to reduce inflamed areas.

Here’s how to use it.

You can make a tea and apply it directly to your hemorrhoids. However, do not drink the tea since it contains tannin, which tightens mucus and tissue and would cause constipation. Use it in powder form and mix it with oil to produce a paste and apply it to your anus area.

Plantain Herb
Plantain also has plenty of allantoin just like comfrey root powder.
Here’s how to use it.

Use it just like comfrey powder by mixing it with oil and applying it directly to your anus.

You can also combine equal parts of the plantain and comfrey powder. If you only have plantain leaves, put them in a coffee grinder to create a powder. Now you can make a mixture with oil and both of these herbs.
