Hemorrhoids and Enlarged Rectal Veins

Hemorrhoids and Enlarged Rectal Veins
By Rudy Silva

Hemorrhoids, in the rectum, occur when the veins are not returning enough blood back to the heart. When this happens, the vein walls do not receive enough oxygen and release a substance into the blood that causes them swell and become inflamed. This swelling weakens them and their more likely to break when they are rubbed, like during a bowel movement.

If your stools are hard, you have a increased chance of breaking a swelling vein. For this reason getting your stools softer is one step in clearing your hemorrhoids. You can do this by eating a diet and using remedies that help relieve constipation.

Hemorrhoids, which are enlarged or swelling can exist,

* On the inside just above the muscle that closes the anus and into to the rectum. They are near the surface of the rectum mucus membrane

* On the outside, they occur on the skin that surround the anus and protrude or hang outward.

In a way, hemorrhoids can be considered varicose veins of the rectum. Just like varicose veins in the legs, the rectum veins become enlarged and come to the skin surface and bulge out.

Hemorrhoids occur when you are constipated for long periods, sit for long hours, lift heavy items, or are pregnant. If you’re constipated, you’re probably having a difficult time having a bowel movement. And when you do, your stools are usually small, hard, and dry.

If you have to push and strain or sit on the toilet for 10-15 minutes, then expect to have hemorrhoids at some point. Two to three minutes is all you normally need to have a natural bowel movement.

Over 85% of the population has hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are a sign that fecal matter is not passing through your colon like it should. Simple hemorrhoids are not dangerous to your health, but hemorrhoids that have been building for a while will cause you some discomfort, such as,

* Mucus discharge
* Bleeding showing up in your stools or dripping into the toilet water
* Itching on the outside of the rectum
* Pain in the rectum area and during a bowel movement
* Pain in the rectum area, when you sit
* Soft bulging area in the rectum or anus that give you a sensation that something is there.

See your doctor if your hemorrhoids are painful, have excess bleeding, or stools have change in color from medium brown to dark brown or black.

Just be aware of any growth in the rectum, bleeding during a bowel movement, and a change in your stools color. Then take action to take care of these changes by seeing your medical practistioner.

External Hemorrhoids: An Overview

External Hemorrhoids: An Overview
By Josh Riverside

Simply stated, there are two kinds of hemorrhoids – the external type which can be seen with the naked eye and the internal type which can only be examined by a doctor. If the tissue that supports the veins in the anal canal weakens, the swollen veins and tissue can bulge into the anal canal (internal hemorrhoids) or under the skin surrounding the anus (external hemorrhoids). Both conditions are identical in nature, in treatment and they share common symptoms which include bleeding during or after bowel movements, itching or a burning sensation in the anus and rectal pain before, during or after bowel movements.

External hemorrhoids are the hemorrhoids visible to the naked eye. They most commonly appear as a cluster of grape-like, discolored skin surrounding the anus. While irritating and unsightly, this form of onset is the easiest to treat and is usually not the precursor to more serious conditions. However, rectal pain occurs mainly with this form of hemorrhoid outbreak. Also, because the swollen veins are on the outside of the anus, bright red blood streaks will appear on toilet paper after, and usually only after, a bowel movement. Blood spotting before a bowel movement would indicate that the patient is suffering from either internal hemorrhoids or both internal and external hemorrhoids, a rare but not impossible scenario.

In some cases of people suffering from external hemorrhoids, there is the possibility that a vein inside one of the external protrusions may break. In this instance, blood can possibly collect under the skin and may form a hard, painful lump. This lump is called a thrombosed, or clotted hemorrhoid. If this is present, the thrombosed needs to be shrunk or drained quickly to avoid further complications.

Cure Hemorrhoids-A Basic Hemorrhoid Overview

Hemorrhoids-A Basic Overview
By Ralph Ruckman

Hemorrhoids can be one of the most irritating and sometimes painful problems people will face in their lifetime. They are also referred to as "disgusting". Yes, they can be disgusting to deal with, but if you have them then they are still a problem in need of being dealt with. Here is a basic overview of hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are really just blood vessels. There is more to it than just that though. Hemorrhoids are blood vessels that usually become swollen. They become swollen because these blood vessels are around the anus region and your lower rectum and they will stretch because of pressure to the region. When this happens, you have produced a hemorrhoid. People increase this pressure and swelling usually from straining when they are trying to release a bowel movement. Some of the other biggest factors in getting hemorrhoids are pregnancy, inheritance through heredity, aging, and constipation. You can usually have hemorrhoids one of two ways-internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids are located within the anus whereas external hemorrhoids come from the skin around the anus.

If you ever think that you may have a hemorrhoid you will need to make sure. There are a variety of other things that can be mistaken for a hemorrhoid. Some of these are fissures, fistulae, and/or abscesses. These tend to cause a lot of itching and irritation and therefore can be mistaken for a hemorrhoid.

Although countless numbers of people may experience a hemorrhoid, not all will experience symptoms. Here are a few noticeable symptoms of a hemorrhoid:

1. Bright red blood covering the stool. You could also see this blood on toilet paper. This is mainly a symptom of an internal hemorrhoid. It is noted though that an internal hemorrhoid can begin to protrude through the anus region towards the outside of the body. It will then become very irritating and painful. You can also refer to this type as a protruding hemorrhoid.

2. Symptoms of external hemorrhoids may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms. This condition is known as a thrombosed external hemorrhoid.

Those are just a couple of symptoms associated with the different types of hemorrhoids. You can also produce symptoms by excessive straining, scratching or rubbing the anus or around it. This can cause irritation that could set of a chain of events that would bring symptoms of developing a hemorrhoid.

It is not uncommon for people to get hemorrhoids. It is said that around half of the population will get a hemorrhoid by age 50. Women becoming pregnant are a higher target for getting hemorrhoids. What happens here is the fetus is the abdomen causing pressure. This along with hormonal changes can cause the hemorrhoid vessels to get bigger. These vessels are exposed to extremely high pressure during the birth. Most of the hemorrhoids forming during a pregnancy are said to be very temporary problems.

Well, now that you know what hemorrhoids are and what the symptoms can be it is now time to cover how to treat them. If you ever do develop a hemorrhoid you probably should see a doctor. If not though here are some medical treatments aimed at relieving the symptoms:

Warm tub or sitz baths several times a day in plain, warm water for about 10 minutes. This will help soothe the irritated region. It can be a bit painful when first getting into the bath.

Ice packs to help reduce swelling. This is just a pretty common approach to any type of swelling.

Application of a hemorrhoid cream or suppository to the affected area for a limited time.

Prevention of the recurrence of hemorrhoids is aimed at changing conditions associated with the pressure and straining of constipation. A lot of doctors will recommend that you increase the amount of fiber that you intake. This will help you have softer stools. Proper fluids will also come highly recommended. When you have a softer stool, you are able to empty your bowels a lot easier and with less strain. Reducing the straining is your best chance of reducing the risk of getting a protruding hemorrhoid.

Now if the above does not work, then you should not waste any time to seeing if you will need surgical treatment. Surgical treatments are widely used to shrink and eliminate the hemorrhoidal tissue. But do not worry because the doctors normally give anesthesia. There are a number of treatments use including: rubber band litigation, Sclerotherapy, electric or laser heat, and hemorrhoidectomy. Knowing which treatment is for you will vary depending on what type of hemorrhoid you have and the symptoms showing for it.

Preventing Hemorrhoids

Preventing Hemorrhoids

Any type of strain put on the anus or anal area may cause hemorrhoids. Tiny veins surrounding the rectum become inflamed and a hemorrhoid is born. By reducing the strain put on the anus, we can reduce the possibility of getting hemorrhoids. There are a few basic things that you can do to alter your lifestyle slightly in order to reduce the risk of developing painful hemorrhoids.

Change your diet to include foods that are high in fiber. Fibrous foods create normal stools that are able pass from the body easily. Passing stool easily creates less strain on the anal muscles and therefore reduces the risk of hemorrhoids.

Some foods that are high in fiber include: grains, foods high in bran, fruits and vegetables.

Processed foods may be convenient but they also cause the stool to harden due to their lack of fiber. These foods will increase your risk of hemorrhoids so they should be avoided.

If you feel that increasing the amount of fiber in your diet is difficult by just changing your diet, there are fiber products available over the counter at your local pharmacy that will soften stool. These products usually come in powder or pill form. If you are unsure which type would be best for you, contact your physician or pharmacist for medical advice.

In addition to adding fiber rich foods to your diet, you should also increase your water intake. The rule of thumb is to drink 8-8oz. Glasses of water per day. Water will loosen your stools again causing less strain on the anal muscles and decreasing your risk of painful hemorrhoids. Change your toilet habits. Do not wait until you feel like you really have to go. Putting off going to the bathroom will give your stool time to harden while waiting in your intestines to be expelled. Hard stool causes increased pushing which in turn causes undo stress to the anus which increases your risk of developing hemorrhoids.

The bathroom may be the only alone time that you can get. However, reading or staying on the toilet for longer periods then needed to take care of business can lead to the development of hemorrhoids.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. The French invented the bidet for a reason.

A clean anal area decreases the chances of developing hemorrhoids. Although cleaning with toilet paper alone is fine, there are now flushable wipes on the market that will guarantee a clean anus. They are safe to flush and safe to use in your most sensitive areas.

Exercise is just good for you in general. It seems that everything can be prevented by adding a little exercise to our lives.

It is just common sense that if we are not exercising or leading an active lifestyle, then we are sitting or leading a sedentary lifestyle. Long periods of sitting cause strain to the anus. As we know by now strain put on the anal muscles is what causes hemorrhoids to develop.

A rule of thumb to follow is that you should stand and walk around for at least 5 minutes every hour. Why that isn’t even real sweat causing exercise. That’s a simple trip to the kitchen for a glass of water!

In addition to not sitting for long periods of time, exercising regularly increases blood flow through the veins. Increased blood flow through the veins will reduce pressure on the veins surrounding the anus and therefore reduce constipation.

Hemorrhoids Symptoms And Treatment

Hemorrhoids Symptoms And Treatment
By: Alexander Sviridov

Hemorrhoids are actually varicose veins in the anus and rectum. They occur when blood vessels that are either inside the anus or around it become swollen. The more swollen they become, the more painful they are. Hemorrhoids may cause bleeding, and their constant irritation could lead to itching. However, most often itching is a sign of pinworms or an overgrowth of Candida albicans.

The following can cause hemorrhoids: constipation, chronic diarrhea, straining when you go to the bathroom, and any pressure that contributes to congestion in veins in that area (like coughing, sneezing, or sitting or standing for long periods of time). But let's face it, if you have strong blood vessels, sneezing and sitting won't give you hemorrhoids.

Traditional Hemorrhoids Treatment:

The first step in most doctors' approach to treating hemorrhoids is to suggest a high-fiber diet and bulking agents, such as Metamucil. Next, they typically suggest taking laxatives for constipation. The problem is that some of the herbs used in laxative formulas, such as senna leaf, are harsh and irritating. Instead, eat a higher fiber diet and take ground flaxseed if your intestines need a little help.

Daily sitz baths can reduce inflammation. Get a large plastic basin and put it in your bathtub. Put two to three inches of hot water (110-120 degrees) in the basin and sit in it for about 20 minutes. If possible, add some hotter water in the tub so your feet are warmer than your bottom. Bring a cold washcloth with you so you don't get too warm. Afterward, take a cool shower or splash the area with cool water and gently dry well.

Topical anti-inflammatory suppositories (such as Anusol and Preparation H) may give temporary relief. But they don't address the problem like some herbal formulas.

Ligation is a more drastic therapy where your doctor ties a small rubber band tightly at the base of an external hemorrhoid. This cuts off circulation and the hemorrhoid falls off. Sometimes, it's necessary to repeat this treatment.

Finally, surgery may be an option if your hemorrhoids are particularly large or painful, or if bleeding won't stop. If you and your doctor think you have time to try other therapies, I have some safe suggestions.

An Integrative Approach To Healing Hemorrhoids:

Improve your sitz baths by adding a cup of strong anti-inflammatory chamomile or comfrey tea to the water. If you have spasms, try adding a dropper of valerian root tincture.

Two citrus bioflavonoids, diosmin and hesperidins, accelerated healing and reduced pain in a French study of 120 people with hemorrhoids. A high amount of hesperidins is in the Hot Flash Formula I helped create (800-728-2288). If you have both hot flashes and hemorrhoids, this formula would be ideal. It won't hurt you if you don't have hot flashes. Or take 1,000 mg of mixed bioflavonoids along with 500 mg or more of vitamin C.

Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is an herb I've talked about before. It, and all other herbs suggested for hemorrhoids, are approved by the American Botanical Council's Expanded Commission E Monographs for safety and efficacy. The ABC suggests a standardized extract containing 20 mg escin, its active ingredient. Horse chestnut is often combined with other herbs that improve circulation, such as bilberry and gingko. Dose: Use according to label instructions.

Butcher's broom (Ruseus aculeatus) is used for fragile veins and varicose veins, as well as acute attacks of hemorrhoids. It can both reduce pain and treat the source of the problem. Butcher's broom is approved for the itching and burning from hemorrhoids. Dose: 7-11 mg of ruscogenin a day.

Witch hazel leaf (Hamamelis virginiana: This astringent herb has been approved both for inflammation and for hemorrhoids. You can use witch hazel both internally and topically. Drink an herb tea made from its bark and leaves two or three times a day between meals. Or apply an ointment or salve that contains witch hazel.

Causes Of Hemorrhoids

Causes Of Hemorrhoids
By: Grace Palce

People with hemorrhoids have been stereotyped by the comics or comedians to be laughing stocks. That’s why fewer people with hemorrhoids tend to go to a doctor and have back irritations and pain sensations consulted by a specialist. Instead they just wait for the pain to subside and just worry about it some other time; especially if the pain becomes chronic. If you are really worried about having hemorrhoids, a careful lifestyle will help a lot. Here are some causes of hemorrhoids that you may have been practicing.

Pregnancy:

Being pregnant causes a woman to increase chances of having hemorrhoids. This is because the rectal veins will be pressured more because of the added weight in the uterus. For women who are already experiencing hemorrhoids, pregnancy can worsen the situation.

Women who are pregnant who do not experience hemorrhoids during pregnancy may still get hemorrhoids during the labor period. This is due to the long and arduous delivery. Another reason is the constipation that a woman experiences after childbirth. Because of the tenderness in the anus and perianal area, women will prolong bowel movements.

Postponing Bowel Movements:

There are some people who are afraid to crap at other places because the toilet might be dirty. Another reason is that there is just no toilet nearby. So people will just try to force the crap back inside for a couple more hours. Doing this occasionally can do no harm, however if it becomes habitual it might lead to hemorrhoids.

When the crap stays longer in the fecal colon, it becomes harder and drier. This makes it tougher to pass. You will then need to force its way out. The rectal muscles that signal a person its time to crap may also become weaker. Just imagine a situation that you suddenly crap in your pants because you didn’t feel anything.

Diseases:

There are lots of diseases that cause hemorrhoids. One disease that can seriously cause hemorrhoids is rectal cancer. This is because rectal cancer will make the person have “false” calls of nature. It will then cause the person to go the bathroom regularly and will strain longer.

People who abuse alcohol will make their livers larger. This will then create extra pressure on the rectal veins. Other diseases that may also cause hemorrhoids are irritable bowel syndrome and intestinal tumor. These diseases causes constipation or interfere with normal elimination.

Hemorrhoids-What Do I Need To Do
By: Rudy Silva

There are many unpleasant symptoms and diseases associated with constipation. Hemorrhoids is one such symptom and many doctor or practitioners say, ”its not a serious condition.” As a natural nutritional consultant, I say, “Hemorrhoids is a condition you need to treat or better yet eliminate.”

You need to listen to all symptoms you have to decide if you need to take some action to correct the cause. Some times just acknowledging a simple symptom is enough for symptom and the cause to disappear. Hemorrhoids, whether simple or severe, are telling you there is something wrong somewhere and “I hope you take care of it before it get worse”

Taking care of hemorrhoids or the hemorrhoid symptoms is the first thing you should take care of. Then, you want to concentrate your effort on the cause of these hemorrhoids. In this way you can help to eliminate your hemorrhoids and prevent them from coming back.

The first signs of hemorrhoids are when you need to take action. Don’t wait until your hemorrhoids get large, give you pain, start bleeding, or protrude

The first question you should ask about hemorrhoids is what caused them.

What causes hemorrhoids?

It is always the cause of an illness that you try to eliminate. Doctors don’t always have the time to determine what the cause is so they will treat the symptom to get rid of it. The result is that your illness will come back or the symptom will come back or appear as a different symptom.

Hemorrhoids are cause by excess pressure in the rectal veins and the veins in the surrounding area.

There are many causes of hemorrhoids of which constipation is a major cause. By first using some natural hemorrhoid remedies that I will discuss in future articles, you can eliminate or diminish your hemorrhoids. Then by using some natural remedies for constipation, you can prevent hemorrhoids from coming back.

Using natural remedies for treating your hemorrhoids is the best way to deal with this condition. In their book, Natural Prescriptions, 1994, Robert M. Giller, M.D. and Kathy Matthews, gives you their opinion of drugstore medications,

“If you are suffering from hemorrhoids right now, you want immediate relief. What about all those over-the-counter remedies? Just last year the FDA clamped down on the manufacturers of these products, and some of them are being removed from the market because they’ve never been proven to be effective. Other must limit their claims. Those that claim to shrink tissues must carry a warning because people with diabetes or heart disease, for example, shouldn’t use them. In the final analysis, while you may get some temporary relief from these products, you could do as well by applying zinc oxide, petroleum jelly, or witch hazel, which are just as effective and far cheaper.”
